News: heat 2 on the way, plus dvd planned

A DVD to be added to the competition.

Owen Edwards says:
I think that the way forward maybe is that whatever track is victorious in the final heat should be the one played live on stage.

That way anyone flagrantly doing a rip off will be found out way in advance and dealt with!

I personally don't care if it's a cover or rip off in the early heats, as these are designed to find the great players, but the for the final on-line heat it should be something original or improvisation based.

And whatever tracks get through should be the ones that are played live. Something last year we didn't insist upon - but this year we will.

One crucial reason is that we cannot have flagrant plagarism for the final as that will be produced as a DVD and sold throughout the world.
