Music is my middle name


WWW
« on: January 10, 2008, 01:20:26 PM »

of the skills of the forum members and the advantage of collaboration trough the forum as a reference for visitors here  Grin

So here is my idea
I've created a standard blues progression in D with BIAB as reference for a song, i've made it pretty long (88 bars)
Now what I would like to do with you guys is reconstruct the song but ONLY with live playing musicians.

So who is in ?

Here is some kind of method to do this.

1. We need a good drumtrack to start with. I've heard some very good drumtracks here on the forum.
2. We need a bass track. I know we have some good bass players.
3. Other tracks can be added. We have some good keyboard players here and allso a couple of guitar players that can solo over it.

So, can we do this ?
I propose that I do the mixing of all the tracks

Ok Rony, I'm in if you want it. I PM'ed you a .ogg; one "round" of hammond lead in typical D blues scale.

Now it may not make the cut. As although it was done with all the human splendor and frailty (plenty of that as you will hear Cheesy) I could muster, it is played into a sequencer and then bounced to wav. Its just the way I'm set up.

Have fun with your experiment  wOO

Great Fred  Cool
I'll listen to that this evening.

Thanks Martin
I'll work some drumtrack out during the weekend.

I'm actually asking myself, do we have a real drummer here on the forum ? Don't think so, where are those guys hiding ?  Roll Eyes Grin

Hey Rony, I didn't think about this before (an age thing I guess Embarrassed), but you'll have to align my track by ear and there's a lead in. Its not going to slide right in the way I sent it to you. So when you figure out in what round you want it (time wise) I'll send you a track that aligns correctly.

ok let's kick this one off
I've created a drumtrack on which everybody can allign his tracks.
This is the construction :
2 bar leadin
4 bar intro
then it loops over 12 bars a section and 12 bars b section until the end

Remember the goal is to create a standard 12 bar blues in D, i suppose that everybody knows the chords, but just in case....  Grin
4 bars D7, 2bars G7,2 bars D7, 1 bar A7, 1 bar G7, 2 bars D7

I think the best way to get this organized is
1. Lay down the whole bass track, James volonteered for this
2. We need a keyboard rythmic track (rharv ?) for the whole track.
3. Then everybody can put his part over it, with a length of his choice

I'll do the mix, can I ask that everybody that contributes, keeps the 2 bar count in in his track (at the start); this will make it easy for me to line up the tracks.

The goal is, when this song is finished to sticky it at the top of the board as an example of how good we are Cheesy


Here we go Cheesy

@Fred

Wow that's some sound, I love it
On what did you play this ?
We will fit this in once we have the basic layout of the song

Aaah!  I just spent an hour doing a drum track.. bumming.
Well- here it is anyway, incase you want it for anything.
 I'll download yours too..and have a go at it.  I worked hard to get the drum ending to line up with your ending..

**I removed the drum I did to reduce any chance of confusion..

I thought, being a keyboard player, you had already done the comping.  What do you want it on? Piano? Organ?...
 I thought I'd try a bass track too, just for fun.

OK, here's  'a bass track' to try out.  If you like it, cool, if not let somone else have a go at it.
 At first I felt bad doing it, since James said he'd do one too, but I know james also has a lot of other instruments he can pitch in on.  I figured I would just try to jump-start it since bass will set the groove for it. If you don't like the direction I took it, have James take a shot at it. Can't hurt to have a few to choose from.
 I'm one of those 'check your ego at the door' guys so no hard feelings either way.

Still need an answer on what kind of comping you want- piano or organ?
Piano would probably be easier to mix in with everything, so I'll probably try that i I get a chance unless I hear otherwise.

@Rharv, you're a guy full of surprises, I didn't know you played bass  Cool

ok; let's start with this
i think piano comping would be the easiest to lay the other tracks over it.

Wyatt, start practising, we'll need some of that harp Smiley
