Steemit Open Mic is an online, live music venue to give musicians a chance to share their music with the Steemit community and get their music heard. It is growing larger every week thanks to all of you.

I want to thank all the talented people that have made the Open Mic contest such a joy to host. It is a pleasure listening to everyone's music and getting to know you guys. Steemit is SO cool like that.

Steemit Open Mic Loves Dtube So Why Do I Have To Add A Youtube Video To My Open Mic Entry --- by @luzcypher

NOTE: While we used to allow acapella performances to get in, recently there have been too many entries from singers without any musicians. Open Mic is a community of musicians and for this reason, tickets without a musical instrument will not be considered a valid entry. NO KARAOKE

Entries must follow these rules to earn prizes. For a more in-depth understanding of the rules read, What Are The Rules To Enter Steemit Open Mic And Why Do We Have Rules Anyways

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

It is very important to say the words "Steemit Open Mic Week 101" AND YOUR USERNAME at the beginning of your recorded video. Posts without those words spoken in the beginning of your live, recorded video do not qualify for prizes.

From now on, anyone entering Open Mic must say Steemit Open Mic Week Number (current week number) and their username to have a valid entry. This is to stop scammers from stealing your video and entering it as their own.

Here is an example of a correctly titled post.

Steemit Open Mic Process

Keeping it short and sweet, here is the flow of considerations for the Steemit Open Mic contest:-

  • Need to promote community participation in the spirit of Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. Steemit Open Mic submissions in comments, community voting and reblogging are encouraged.

  • However, we need to avoid public vote abuse and keep a certain standard for Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. community voting as the first filter, before internal voting.
  • Another problem: late submissions are usually disadvantaged as they get less attention on the contest post.
  • So.. we've tried to mitigate such a problem by including unique votes of Steemit Open Mic submissions in their own blog posts.
  • IT IS CRUCIAL WHEN YOU RECORD YOUR VIDEO THAT YOU SAY "STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 102" AND YOUR USERNAME AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR VIDEO

  • We're looking for real live musical performances for this contest. Some people have posted old videos from YouTube and it's difficult to verify that it's really them performing. They will be disqualified from the contest.

  • If you want a chance to earn the prize, make a new video and say STEEMIT OPEN MIC Week 102 at the start of it.

.

New Music Category Communities

Music Category communities are coming together on Steemit and if you're a music lover, please show support and join in the fun. Here are a few new places to find great music.

Suggestion: openmic must be the first tag to enter open mic, but adding other music-related tags (such as music, music-trail) may help your post get more attention and perhaps even get curated by those music curators.

If your song is an original song, add orginalmusic as your 2nd tag. This will help curators know it is an original song which currently pays a Steem bonus to you.

Thank you all for the participation!

Hello! This is going to be the first time that I will be submitting an entry to the Steemit Openmic Contest. Here's a cover of Ed Sheeran's Tenerife Sea. Hope you like it! :)
https://steemit.com/openmic/@charlocked/steemit-open-mic-week-102-tenerife-sea-by-ed-sheeran-a-cover-by-charlocked

Hi to all this is my new entrance post for this contest. Song: "Climax" and it's an original progressive rock genre song. This song was created by improvising chords, notes and melodies (jamming).

Conceptual art exists since many years ago, as well as creative freedom, and generally speaking, sad people who do not have that open mind to understand that art goes beyond their limited concept of creative processes.

In other news, well I'm very happy because this is my 30th post vídeo for this contest, I've created posts for Openmic since February 14th, I started with the of Openmic #72 and I've made a weekly video from that day until now, non-stop music labor here.

Blessings to all

Went a bit more moody than usual this week. Kinda bluesy. I wrote this song today.. actually I took it from an old poem and just updated it to make it into a song. Nothing fancy but I like it okay.

"Moon in My Shoe"

Very moody, but I like it. Loneliness and things falling apart can be good inspiration. I also like the kitty in the background. ;)

My first attempt at an entry turned into a comedy post describing the struggles of a mom trying to make the most of her one hour away from the kids to get her entry ready-only to finally get one good take and use the wrong week number!! So, here's my final attempt.
