Bass Guitar - FOR THE WIN. Who's it gonna be?

So as you can see here, Independence 05, aka moi, is giving away a bass guitar (Squier by Fender). This bass guitar is really like new, I barely used it, I got it as a gift on my 23rd birthday, woohoo that was long time ago!










Anyway, why not sell it? Well, I figured it won't get me much. Thus, I thought I'd put it out here for someone to win it. The thing is, you must do 2 things (and check 3rd condition too), and only those things to enter this competition (if I may call it that).
  1. Follow this blog with Google friend connect
  2. Put up a comment here (only one will be regarded in the competition, the first one), just so I know that you know follow this blog and exist.. in this competition.
  3. Be in Lebanon, I will not ship, heck.. you'll come as close as I say to get this bass, am not driving more than 2 miles :P
Are you pondering what I'm pondering pinky? Yes yes you are, I am bluntly and out in the open, trying to increase the number of my followers. I figured, I have this bass guitar which I have been trying to figure out what to do with for the past 3 years, and I have this *coughs* issue with the number of followers on google.

Needless to say that, it's going to be massive. 

When will we choose the winner:
Either in 10 days or 2 weeks, not sure, depends on the number of followers I get, I aim to get 10'000! Just kidding!!

How will we choose the winner:
Okay this is the formula and y is the winning number which is equivalent to the comment number (following the rule that 2nd comment by same person won't be counter):

y = |x^2 - 2|

x will be chosen depending on number of comments I get, meaning if I get 155 comments, x will be between 0 and 11? Get it? Ok whatever, trust me on this, everyone will have the chance to win.


Edited: Okay when I wrote the previous formula it had a huge loophole :P So I simplified it to the above. 

Who will choose the number? I will choose a random celebrity, I am thinking either Ziad Baroud or Megan Fox. Negotiations are taking place as I post this.

Good luck y'all :)

  3. The bass should go to the person who truly appreciates the instrument and understands its value to a song. The person who has an ear for it. The person who can tune out the rest of the instruments in a song and focus only on its bass line. The person who has the ability to figure out that Prince's "When Doves Cry" does not actually have a bass line. The person who, since he was kid, always wanted to play bass and not 'cool' instruments like a guitar, piano or drums. The person who spends hours on the Internet downloading bass tabs so he can master playing songs' base lines on his acoustic guitar.

    That person is me.

    Mabrook to whoever wins :-)

  11. Technically I don't live in Lebanon, but I keep shipping stuff back and forth, so I definitely wouldn't mind shipping the guitar myself, in the meantime it could stay with my loving guitarist brother :)
    PS: We all follow you on twitter, reader, facebook and whatnot... don't worry about your Friend Connect reader count
    PSS: Lilo you commented yourself, does that mean you could actually win the bass ? :P

  20. i know how to make use of it :) i've been playing the bass guitar for 5 years now. so pick me!!

    whoever wins, would u trade it with my bass guitar? :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I don't know what to exactly do with it, but I mean it's a musical instrument and a very beautiful one, it's not just wood and metal strings, so giving it away to increase traffic on your blog doesn't seem to be right for me, this guitar deserves being given in a better way than this :) ... well, at least that's how I feel :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Rany, I have been wanting to give it away since years now, so for me, it's a double bill, as simple as that :)

    It's not like I sat there thinking, okay how will I lure in people to my blog. It's actually the opposite, it was: okay I want to give away the bass, but how do I do it?

    You don't believe me eh? hehe

  26. ammm.. Lilo choose Megan Fox and she'll choose me for sure! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Keep it!! We should jam together! I'll be on drums ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. BTW the new formula is y = x... I donno why I keep coming up with unfair formulas, the latter gives everyone a chance.

    Oh and serpico :P I want to be on drums :) planning on learning it soon!

    ReplyDelete
  29. When u will make the draw ? I can't wait to get my hands on the guitar !

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm a guitarist for like 5 yrs but I'm planning to learn also to play on the bass so I think you should pick me... :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi Lil! Wow, you’re giving away a bass guitar! Hmm, if y = x then if a boy wins it, you should revote till a girl wins it (there, I’ve doubled my chances of winning already!:-P).

    Seriously though, I think this giveaway is a brilliant way of increasing your online traffic! You genius you, first you help me configure my iPhone WAP, now you give away the greatest musical instrument there is!

    I see that, you should give it away to a person who sees that, preferably a co-"True German Football supporter"… like… um… me? :-)

  33. Liliane, when u pick the paper that has the name of the winner or whatever the draw form will be, don't be surprised to find out my name.

    I can feel it. I am destined to win it !

    Bring it on !
