Steemit Open Mic Week 77 - Record Your Performance And Win Steem - Sponsored By @pfunk And @luzcypher

in openmic •  6 months ago

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.

NOTE TO SCAMMERS: I have closed most of the holes scammers have found to cheat the contest except for one. Now people are stealing valid entries from the current week and entering it as their own thinking that because the person in the video says the words Steemit Open Mic Week (current week number) that I will not notice it was already entered. This is the worst form of cheating possible and I have started flagging those caught doing this.

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.

It is very important to say the words "Steemit Open Mic Week 77" AND YOUR USERNAME at the beginning of your recorded video. Posts without those words spoken at 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.

If your song is an original song by you it is very important you put the word "original" in the title and "originalmusic" as the second tag of your post

Here is an example of a correctly titled post.

These requirements make it easier for judges and curators to find your posts and reward you for original songs. Ignoring these requirements only hurt your chances of earning rewards.

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 77" 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 77 at the start of it.

.

How To Enter Steemit Open Mic Night

  • In a well lit quiet room, use your cell phone to record your performance. See recording tips here and here

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!

Thank you for the positive support from the Steemit community and special thanks to @kevinwong for his guidance, encouragement and support and @verbal-d for writing a song that inspired the idea and @pfunk for helping and supporting Open Mic.

Please contact @luzcypher in SteemitChat for any further questions you may have and you can post your entry there too. https://steemit.chat/channel/openmic

Wow! This is the coolest contest I've ever seen here. The size of the prize is staggering. It is not surprising that the crooks already here. You are very generous and do a good job, helping the musicians to rise. I don't write music and don't sing(well, if only during the shower, haha), just stumbled on your post. However, I cannot remain indifferent. Just a thank you from everyone who can participate. You do so much good. Seriously. After all, the fate of unrecognized musicians is sometimes difficult. Many give up their hobby, while others go into depression due to the fact that they can not make it to success. But now they have a chance to gain audience, recognition and monetary reward. Good luck with your endeavors.

Thanks for your great comment!
It's good to hear from a music fan!
I almost gave up my love of writing music, I'm so glad I didn't and found #steemit and this amazing group of musicians! @luzcypher continues to do an amazing job each week for us all here!
Get that mic out and sing us a song sometime!
Cheers
Darren

Hey everyone! Here is my submission for Open Mic week #77. This is a cover song by Joe Satriani called "Midnight".

Here’s a link to the post:

Very clever technical playing here @donroberts
Cheers for sharing

Cool!
Hey what kind of guitar is that?

It’s a Reverend Wolfman. I don’t even think Reverend makes them anymore!

Yes. What an awesome song to play. That is one of my favorite Satriani tunes. Great performance

Thank you so much! I agree! This is one of my favorites too. I also really love “Time Machine”.

Steemit Open Mic Week 77

Land Of Confusion - Genesis (Acoustic Cover)

Hey everyone! Well, here's my first entry... And since this is an "open mic" I thought I'd try a song I've never done before. I've been playing with this tune for a while, with the band, but we've yet to perform it live. Not sure if this solo-acoustic version will properly deliver my vision for it, but hopefully you'll get the idea. :)
With everything going on out there in this crazy world right now, this just feels like the perfect time to play this song. Thank you so much for listening. ❤️

https://steemit.com/openmic/@dannyhamilton/return-to-editingsteemit-open-mic-week-77-land-of-confusion-phil-collins-acoustic-cover

Really cool interpretation of this song. Love it. Welcome to Open Mic.

·

There's some real power in this song. Nice picking

Thank you @steevc

Hello from London guys, enjoy :) ha found a keyboard - no sustain pedal this time!

I just recorded my entry. I expect it will be another busy week for you. Thanks for doing this.

·

I'm a big Monty Python fan and loved this!
Wouldn't it be a beautiful thing to encapsulate Sir Stephen and launch his body into the cosmos?
Nice one @steevc 'there's bugger all down on earth'

·
·

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life by Monty Python

·

Great choice man, very apropo and well executed.

awwww - that means a lot! I'm not the best at ballad belting but i tried to give it my own spin on the song to make it different so i really appreciate that!:)

Hello, @luzcypher. I got lost last week. When I had the chance to reacord it was a little too late so I decided to leave it for this weeks entry. Here it is. Hope you like it!

P.S.: I worked on some editing for the sound, so I'm afraid it's not necessarily so much better than before but I'm trying to cover it up.
