Grateful Dead

The Dead Covers Project 2016

Whether you play just like Jerry or like to give the Grateful Dead's beloved classics a unique spin, the 2016 Dead Covers Project wants you! We're calling all musicians - near and far - to share your 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. Can't carry a tune? Join the fun by "liking" your favorites on YouTube.

Good luck!

Entering/ Posting Your video

@dave williams
To post your video here,
- go to your youtube video,
- click 'share' down just below the title of your video.
- click the 'embed' tab just below that, when it pops up
- copy that text, and paste it into a comment here.

To officially "enter", you'll need to 'tag' your video. To do this...
enter the 'video manager' in youtube,
and add these tags to your video

Supposedly only the first one is necessary, but there was some disagreement about it last year, so I tagged all three, and it worked.

Cheers.

trying to post a video for the first time.

I was able to upload it to YouTube, tagged as "Dead Covers Project 2015", but have no idea how it gets to the site here. Any beta would be appreciated, thanks.

the ESSENTIAL thing to do

is post them, properly tagged as above, on YouTube. That's what gets them into our queue from which Featured videos get selected, etc.

A lot of folks take the additional step of posting them here (use the embed code on YouTube), which is nice too.

Dead Covers Project Videos

Are we supposed to be posting videos here on our own? Or are we only supposed to post on YouTube and tag properly? Do the videos then somehow make their way over here? Still confused; guess I'll just listen to the music play!

Can't Find Franklin's Tower ~Dead Covers Project 2015

Just gonna give this one more try after the poor outcome of my previous effort below.

This song is dedicated to the homeless of the world and all those who work to ease their pain.

Hmmm

Tried posting a YouTube link for the first time here and this is how it turned out. Not optimal, for sure. Any hints on how to get a better transfer of a link? I used the embed feature on YouTube and this is what it gave me.
