LOL to be frank, even we judges dont know our "methods".

On bias- i think judges can be biased too by friendships and personal music flavors. If i were judging and there was a reggae entry, i'd give it a lift, cos i like reggae. No need to say what'll happen if it is somebody i regualrly communicate with. It is human nature, i think. There could be exceptions, hope u r.
If at any moment one feels taht his (or for that matter, anyone else's) guitar playing was "better" than someone else, he is free to state that.
There are other people (lots of people, actually, as you put it later in your post) who are also there.
They can decide for themselves, how fair the judges have been in their conduct.
I would put the number of IDs figure to roughly 150-200.
IGT is asias largest group so voters are there, chk the chit chat areas. 30000 are registered. let's say half are false ids, still 15000 left. lets say many are not active still number is considerable. Not all are musicians or boast as guitarist but all are in one way or other interested in guitar and related music. Don't think they are here to chat alone. get them in the act. Youtube is youtube because they give ordinary people a chance. Got people involved. IGT also need to grow in stuff
10-20% among them as active.
It is these active member who would bother to listen to recordings and secretly vote.
Dont you think THAT offers a bigger chance of bias, than 3-4 judges who have to judge in "full public view"?
Well dont take this personally, but lemme ask you:
I didn't knew option to vote was included, is it there? good But it should have been there from from start. OK leave it. Personally i think somebody judging is nonsense man. I remember watching Miss (world? bangalore, i think) on TV some years back. I think there was one miss columbia... Well I am not explainging more. But judges ask questions, u know. they can be biased. leave female beauty contest to voters like me and see real results :-)
If there is a guitar contest based on popularity (or mass voting), who will win?
Shahrukh Khan (assuming he learns and plays Summer of 69)
John Abercrombie (playing his usual jazz)
Hmmm, do you by any chance mean that since Cmaj Fmaj Gmaj progression is more popular and catchy (probably to you too), it is of higher "quality" than the Dm7 G7 Cmaj7 progression?
Again to me quality (in music) is when I really like it. i donno what r "krish masks" but i hate remixes
Dude, this contest is certainly not the last one.
And on making tunes for contest. i read somewhere somebody write he/she didn't get enough time or were under pressure. The contest was not started with any clear ideas, some said vocal some said guitar. Some had tunes previously done. don't u think they have an edge?
In fact, you can assume it to be a pilot project, on basis of which, "better organised" ones shall thrive.
And it is information for me to know people can create tunes at will. Perhaps I think same applies for poems and writing too. Those who can knows it. My thought was that it can't be timed nor births. I was wrong on one. Devil that answers boldline too. thx n rgds
And thats what makes this even better.
IGT is testing how dedicated one was to music as well as his instrument.
If one have been playing for past 10 years, he stand a better chance of winning than one who started off 1 year ago, since:
1. he would have more "fluency" over the guitar
2. he would have thought of more musical ideas, more exposure + experimentation
HOWEVER, if the person who has learnt only for 1 year has been more dedicated that the one who has been playing for 10 years, ..... ?
needless to mention that this 1 year guy would score better on those two points than the 10 year guy.
I am not against VDOs.
But devil i think beginners need vids more. I need em i vote for vid section
And devil and SG u been motivating people to expand musical interest. 100% support u both on that. But these bands influence people and they come here to learn it. chk the search logs and u know. Been writing too much today. so stop for some hours. Hehe but i get more points. AJ u know why i write more
But believe me they will make bandwidth issue a hell for the admins.
Even smallest of Vid will be ~1 MB.
You donít get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.
