Steemit Open Mic Week 83 - Record Your Performance And Win Steem - Sponsored By @pfunk And @luzcypher

in openmic •  4 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.

@pfunk has been sponsoring Steemit Open Mic since I first started it and I want to give a big thank you to him and all the people who support and take part in Steemit Open Mic.

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.

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 82" 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 83 at the start of it.

.

How To Enter Steemit Open Mic Night

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!

Love this! That percussion works really well - how are you micing this? Such a fun summery sound. Makes me think of Manu Chao.

Thanks as always to @luzcypher @pfunk and the whole Open Mic team.

Steemthat


Darren Claxton is a Songwriter, Musician and Producer of his own music, from Derbyshire UK. The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’. But most of all, it's his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.


·

Awesome as always! You inspire me to work even more on my fingerpicking! <3

·

What a great song. I really appreciate the way @zipporah's voice works with yours. You've got my vote, brother.

Letter

Three little birds. By: Bob Marley

Don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing don't worry about a thing
Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Rise up this morning
Smiled with the rising sun
Three little birds
Its by my doorstep
Singing sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying, this is my message to you.

Regards
