  6. Do you have to be able to hear the bass or is this purely visual? I would think some ideas are not ideal for hauling gear or recording equipment. Thanks for this opportunity!

    Rick on 25 January 13, 2:05am (Reply)
    • We don’t want you to have to haul a bunch of gear around. If you would like to play in a weird place with your bass and no amp that is fine. Just have fun doing it!

  7. Just to be clear on the rules, this is supposed to be an actual place and not just in front of a green screen right? And can it only be one place per video?

    David on 30 January 13, 3:03am (Reply)
    • Hi there David. Yes in an actual place, and it can be multiple places on one video. You’re allowed to enter two video’s.

  8. Hey,

    I was wondering, can the song we play be a cover? (with the song in the background)

    Thanks, Rares

    • Hi there Rares. You can do a cover if you’d like no problem.
