The Dead Covers Project
Whether you play just like Jerry or like to give the Grateful Dead's beloved classics a unique spin, the 2014 Dead Covers Project wants you! We're calling all musicians - near and far - to share their love for the music and magic of the Dead through video. Show off your musical chops and you just might find yourself front and center on Dead.net during the month of February! The rules are simple - all video submissions must contain a song either written by or recorded by the Dead. How that song is interpreted, however, is entirely up to you.
Upload your video to YouTube, tag it "DeadCoversProject," and we'll make it available to view on the band's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/gratefuldead. Need a little inspiration? During February, you can also check out an exclusive video playlist featuring a handful of hot submissions at www.facebook.com/gratefuldead. Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube!
TODAY'S FEATURED VIDEO
Thanks to dead.net for sponsoring the Dead Covers Project 2014! Good job!
Here are some suggestions for the 2015 DCP:
1) I saw quite a few posts from people wondering if their video had been "picked up" by dead.net for the project. Consider sending a message to the YouTube account holder to let them know "Yes we've found your video".
2) DEFINITELY send a message to the YouTube account holder if a video is going to be on your front page in the "Featured Artist" section. I am not embarrassed to say that I was THRILLED when my video showed up there, but I might have overlooked it if I wasn't a habitual dead.net lurker...
Thanks again brothers (and sisters). Peace.
Thanks Jim. I'll try that.
