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
Gotcha! And thank you for all you do, Mary!
tag it with whatever else makes sense, but be sure to tag it with that.
I have solved the links/videos problem and it was on my end, kind of. I use an iMac computer and thus have Safari as a default browser. Now I know for sure, Safari sucks! I switched over to my Firefox browser and lo and behold, videos are now loading as they should. If you're having trouble with the videos not loading use Firefox.
Last question/comment. There seems to be conflicting info on the tags. I read somewhere that the tag should read DeadCoversProject2015 and then I read here that the tag should read DeadCoversProject (no 2015). Can I get clarification on this?
I also think I saw somewhere that the tag should read Dead Covers Project 2015 (shown with spaces).
Sorry to be such a pain in the bucket!
Having a lot of trouble with this site. There appear to be links to some of the videos but not others. Refreshing the page doesn't help. However sending a ''reply'' message to the posts with no links telling them their link is not visible and then returning to the page for some reason forces the llink or video to appear. I feel like I'm being punked. Weird problem.
Not seeing a video link to click on here.
Q:. Where's the list of all the featured videos so far?
A: Coming in next month's March Madness, where you'll be able to watch and rate the featured clips. Starts mid-March.
