I figure we can all help each other out and put links to youtube clips here so that we can help each other out.

It's another contest so I may just have to try this out... :-/... (I don't really have the time this time around! though this should be an easier video to make than a hammerhead video)

Thoughts? Hopefully they upload new songs to the App and by new songs I mean some really old songs too - I'm sure a lot of us have figured out how to play tkaa, coap, yggfk etc already (not necessarily Well, but tried none the less)

I'm so upset. This is such a perfect opportunity for me and I have an Android phone. I really want that guitar and I'm actually confident that I could win it. I'm really, really upset right now. I had my hopes up so much for this app, and now I find out I can't even get it...

^ ahhh man sorry to hear that.

I actually don't think I stand a chance in hell this time around but i DO like that they're going to pick from the video with the top 10 views. Those of you here at Hammerhead time will recall the most viewed was almost certainly botted (sooooo manyyyyyy more views than the rest of em). Or that guy just knows how to network better I guess but I prefer my sore loser answer more :)

I want to give them my money lol. I already know how to play all of their songs, but still I want this. Even more so since I can win an autographed guitar. That would just be fucking incredible. I really hope they are reading these comments. A lot of people want it on Android. I don't know why they would alienate at least 50% of the market by only putting it out for iPhone.

lol, can anybody rip it and make it work on PC?Unlikely :( Though it'd be great to see an Android version of it. Not that I'll be able to do much with it, but always nice to download and check it out anyway.

I'm looking forward to some videos for the contest, just to get a glimpse of how the app actually looks like.

The Offspring's Rock Prodigy App and Contest sounds super cool, but unfortunatelly no iPhone's or i'Pad's or any i's with iOS can be found around me! Still, great surprise from the band to us - the fans!

His haircut and color actually looks good in that video. I had to stop myself from saying anything before because from the "twitpic" I thought it looked hideous.

"remember the best guitarist, is the one having the most fun" - noodles concured.

^ it strikes me that I am not the most talented guitar player (shocking, I know) so I was trying to think of an idea along those lines to make it seem goofy.

problem is I'm not entirely sure how to do that.

To try to make up for the audio (and missed notes) on YGGFK, I posted a new version. Amp'd even...

cool, i'd love to see it :)

It shall include a lot of jumps, head moshing, mouushing, playing guitar behind a neck, all the rituals Noodles does... overdramatic rocking. This is what's this about. :D

and yeah i was wondering the same thing, they're normally dead good at letting us know with competitions though. i'd imagine we've got plenty of time left :)

Think you can still make the top 10 most views? ;)

Zee
03-31-2012, 02:46 PM
Are there even ten contenders? :D

But anyway I believe it's a fair play, and winners will be picked later on, and maybe views will not have anything to do with it. ;)

But I sure as hell do need a social media mention! :D Hell, I was even forced to do a Twitter account... I named it the funny way you used to pronounce my name.

Ha, I recorded this just now at night time! Hopefully my neighborhood didn't mind too much... here it is: http://youtu.be/rpZhYmBFmx4

I guess I do need a few views. :S

I really hate these "video with the most views wins" competition. It totally ends up being a factor of the person who has the most friends or stays up all night posting his video everywhere wins.

Not really fair in my opinion. They should have these competitions where they themselves judge which video is the best.

Best video for the Rock Prodigy competition so far! Zee nice work you did! :) Hope you win the 1st prize, you deserve it!

Thanks for the support everyone. :D

RockProdigy just noticed my tweet about it. I have a good feeling about this. :D

those were some impressive videos, not going to lie.

Sad I couldn't put something together in time but regardless was fun to watch everyone's work!

There's a lot videos named "The Offspring: Rock Prodigy Contest" but most of them doesn't use any iStuff in there! I guess they won't qualify. And thus they can't take the "most viewed" category from YouTube because most of the top ten would be disqualified anyway. :D

Luckily my video ended up on RockProdigy's twitter favourites album, and there seems not to be too much videos. Easy for the band to spot it in there.

iPad and Ibanez NDM2, yes thank you! :)

I would think it's this Easter time that they will announce the winner... after they've landed from Japan maybe.

And yes, this message is a selfish selfpromotion, but someone's gotta do the dirty job. :D

I mean...it was kind of entertaining...but not really worthy of winning the competition at all, in my opinion...He was obviously having fun but not really playing the song and just kind of knocking things over and yelling randomly.
