For all you musicians out there! Whether you are a virtuoso or an amateur, this is the competition for you!!!

This competition will be based on performance skills and quality.

Im sure that you would have seen one of GCl's singing debates or one of Crypto's music debates. This tournament will work like that except that there will be more rounds of competion.

The tourney layout:
Finals (2 people)
Semi Finals (4 people)
Quarter Finals (8 people)

1st round!
There will be 4 pairs- consisting of 8 people in total. The 8 people will be randomly put into 4 pairs, the people in each pair will have to go against each other and there shall be one victor from each pair.

2nd round!
Each victor from the last round will then be randomly paired up with another victor from the last round. Therefore there would be two pairs then performing against each other within each pair. Once again, only one person from each pair will win and will therefore go forwards to compete in the finals.

3rd round (finals)
The two victors of the last round shall compete against each other. The round layout will remain the same as the previous rounds. There will ultimately be one winner.

Round layout:

1st round.
-The 1st round debate shall consist of 3 rounds; 1st round being acceptance and reiteration of rules, rounds 2 & 3 being performance rounds
- The "performances" shall be presented in the form of an audio file or video file. A single performance shall be presented in round 2 and then round 3.

2nd round.
-The 1st round debate shall consist of 3 rounds; 1st round being acceptance and reiteration of rules, rounds 2 & 3 being performance rounds
- The "performances" shall be presented in the form of an audio file or video file. A single performance shall be presented in round 2 and then round 3.

3rd round (finals)
--The 1st round debate shall consist of 2 rounds; 1st round being acceptance and reiteration of rules, rounds 2 being performance.
- There shall only be 1 performance piece presented by each side. This shall be in round 2.

Rules for each round debate:
-Any instrument can be played, Including singing and percussion.
-Any genre of music can be performed. At the participants discretion.
-No rude language or vulgarity
-The performances can only be of you! (you being a participant)
-The video/audio files can only be hosted via youtube or another easily accessical public site.
-Any forfeits of a round means automatic loss for that person. Therefore meaning that the other person will be the winner of that pair round.
- For each performance round, each side shall declare the title of the piece that they are playing in that round.
- Each side can play the same instrument and by chance, are permitted to perform with the same piece against each other.
-Throughout the rounds, You cannot submit the same piece.
-You are allowed to change instruments, or genre or piece.
-There will be no Elo requirement to vote.
- Each piece can range from 1 min- 5 mins (playing time, not whole video) in time.
- The performance can consist of an extract of a song.


Voting criteria:

- Vote based on whos piece was performed nicer
- vote based on whos piece sounded nicer.
-Vote based on Technicality used (speed, accents etc)
- Vote based on quality of piece, not video or audio or quality.
-Dont vote against someone because of the length of the piece, if the piece is longer; you should consider this as a quality of the sides playing skills i.e. durability.
- Before voting, do not take the sides playing standard level into consideration.


Requirements for signing up-

- You must be willing to post a video of you performing. Or at least make an introduction in visual person
- You must be able to peacefully participate
- You must be able to be play an instrument or sing to at least of an absolute beginner's standard.
- You must accept the possibility of being paired against a friend, or having to perform the same, piece or instrument as your opponent.

I will call this tournament the "DDO YOUNG MUSICIAN TOURNEY".

I hate watching myself on video so I'll probably only do a video introduction and do everything else audio. When does this start?

No :( I tried to download it but it kept telling me to pay or something. Another user sent me a PM showing me how to get it free, but I'm scared of jailbreaking my phone lol I have Apple Care and I don't want to possibly void the contract or something.

What I've been doing is recording the audio on my phone, putting it on my computer, then adding a picture with the audio in Windows Movie Maker, then uploading to Youtube. So complicated haha

Honestly, you don't have to pay for it unless you want to be considered a VIP lol but for free you can use It however to make your own "music" you'd have to watch videos which are about other apps but it won't damaged your phone. I've ised Smule for about almost a year now and it's never done any damaging. It's a really useful app for singing. But I can understand anyways as yes the way you do things does seen harder lol.

Hmm every time I've tried to use the app, it won't let me play back to hear myself unless I pay. Are you able to play back your audio before you publish it? I forget how it works exactly... so I have to watch ads to be able to record and stuff?

Another reason I didn't really try to use it is because it wanted me to use earphones and I couldn't hear myself singing over the music. I usually do a capella or play the piano myself anyway so it's all good :)

Once there are 8 people signed up and then I will get a confirmation from all participants for the go-ahead. Then we shall start.
