#iPlay Contest Rules
Each month, Matt will select an #iPlay song to work on. Then you will have until the end of the month to get your video up on Instagram. Learn how to play along on drums using the breakdown videos on the website! Prize to be announced soon!

Here are the rules for the #iPlay contest (in case you just signed up to be a Member at MGL or missed the last email):
  1. If you've won a previous month you are not eligible to win again (but you are encouraged to submit your video
  2. Your video must be 60 seconds
  3. You must #iPlay followed by the name of the song that month
  4. Your submission must be uploaded to Instagram by the last day of the month at 9PM EST
  5. Your 60 second clip must feature the first 60 seconds of the song.  If you choose to include non-drum intro (where applicable) that is totally fine.
  6. You DO NOT NEED to be a Member of MGL to be eligible to win.
  7. Your video does NOT need to include the song of the month overdubbed.  That is up to you.
  8. You do NOT have to play the song at 100% speed to be eligible.  The goal here is to have fun and push yourself and we are not all at the same level.
  9. Restricted to US residents only.
