    Default Tattoo Contests

    Hey guys, I'm sure you've all heard about the ESPN contest by now: http://www.espn.com/vanhalen
    If you haven't entered already and you can, DO IT!

    But last night on Youtube, there was a little blurb about having a Tattoo cover video contest, and no info on how to enter. Now today, I wake up to find this:

    http://vanhalenguitar.tumblr.com/

    My band didn't post our video, but right now, it's the featured (and only) cover on the site. I was quite surprised and excited, to say the least. But does anyone have any more info about it? I haven't heard anything about the contest yet from the VH/Interscope camp.

    I call BS on this... The rules are just a copy of the twitter tattoo contest with some minor changes to reflect this so called guitar contest. And the winning prize is a guitar valued at $300? hmmmm... but if its real... good luck.
    Yes

    Ya, I don't know. All I know is somebody posted our cover on there with the original video, and it sure looks legit.

    The $300 guitar prize thing is common though -- they always take a crappy $200 guitar to have bands sign, and then give them away -- hardly anyone ever signs an actual nice guitar to give away in a contest.

    Does anyone know if there are Tattoo backing tracks available? I figured I'll try out, just to get more views I guess, and I can't spend time making a MIDI drum and bass kit.

    I haven't seen one yet -- my band redid the entire song from absolute scratch, so we didn't have to find one. I'm sure someone will have at least a midi backing track up somewhere soon. You never know... maybe Van Halen will release a backing track for the contest. I highly doubt it, but you never know.

    The dude who's running the contest has a backing track for people to download and play over.

    That's your guitar there using the carabiners on the guitar strap?
    How's that work? Is just for aesthetics or are they better than strap locks?

    I don't think that dude is running the contest at all -- it looks to be sponsored by Interscope, and it looks like he's trying to hijack it and make it look like he's involved. Maybe get some hits for his backing track and youtube channel. You'll notice his video isn't even on the contest site, at least yet, so I doubt he's actually running it.

    Yep, that's my guitar. I haven't really used straplocks much, and I don't trust them to hold. I know these things will hold, and won't accidentally come undone. They work surprisingly well.

    If anyone finds that track I'd really appreciate it. I've done like 1-2 VH covers on youtube just because I can't find great sounding backing tracks with vocals/ don't wanna retune my only guitar.
