Okay, we just wanna put some feelers out there to see if this is an idea, or not.
This forum is just starting up, it has a good pool of users all ready and everyone is starting to feel all fine and groovy, getting to know eachother. We have all written posts and talked a whole lot. Now what?
What about an authentic jam contest? Hobostubs here is willing to play and record a jam track for us to use. This jam track will be posted on ReverbNation where you can buy it for 99cents, what you do is plug some speakers into your computer and then you jam along with Hobo. After enough practice you record it and post it in a thread we will make here. We will of course set a time limit, two weeks or something should be enough? When that limit is reached, all the contributions will be put up for voting, and here’s the deal: the winner gets 75% of the earnings made from selling the jam track at 99cents! The last 25% goes to Hobostubs for organizing it all, which I think is nothing but fair.
This might not be all that in the start, but if we look into the future this could become a great tradition, giving the forum an edge over other harmonica forums. Maybe one day we can have monthly contest with prizes sponsored by the bigger harmonica brands.
And by that I open this topic for discussion. We want this to be authentic, so everyone should chip in with ideas! And, I for one, does not want this to turn out to a money chasing contest. It’s about the fun, but a small prize can stimulate us to try extra hard, making it just a tad more fun
