If my looper pedal get here in time can I use that but live? To play the bassline, rhythm and melody too? Sounds great on Bob Marley songs, count me in either way, I love Bob!!

I can't do any video in one take. Do you really mean one take?
Now I am not the contest sponsor, but in general one take doesn't necessarily mean the first take. It just means one continuous unedited video. It could be you hundredth take.

I'm not the contest sponsor either, but overdubbing is when you record extra tracks such as backing vocals or other instruments and edit (dub) them into the audio over the original recording.

Thanks J-Peg ! Yes overdubs is adding a track like bass & drums,etc that is from a tape recorder CD etc. that isn't live. The contest is onlyto feature Uke & Vocals-also in response to the first take question-please just do one take (whichever take is the best choose) not several tries at a tune in the video . Hope this clears things up! Looking forward to Jamming to some Marley music on Ukulele !
