This weekend I too will see what ideas I can get.


Are we thinking standard tuning and Bm F# A E... for the verse?
I got a 5 string bass, so that can sound heavy, but my guitars are "only" 6 strings, so I've never done anything like a crazy drop B tuning.


How is the music making going for you?

I've got a pretty standrad drum pattern down, close to the original, but it's kinda boring...Do we want to play the song faster?
I think it could be fun to use some more agressive drum patterns, maybe even with some double bass bursts, but stay close to the original tempo, if you knwo what I mean.
What are your thoughts on tempo and drum patterns?

The metal remix I posted earlier is a bit faster than the original I think.
I dunno if we can pull off a heavy version if we are in the original tempo.

The pattern has to be different from the original so it is our version.
Let's hear, your suggestion.

I think we should play the song faster than original tempo since it's our version as Ulrik said. I'm making some riffs but since i don't have a exact tempo if i can have a reference drum track i can make it faster.

Thanks for your opinions guys, will make a faster drum track smile.gif
Since EZ drummer and Reaper let me adjust the tempo with basically just a click we can always increase or decrease the speed later on. I am busy having fun with my friends today, but will have time to program a drum track tomorrow in the morning, so be patient smile.gif

How are we getting on with the "Hotel"?

I recorded some stuff for rythm parts, but I'm not really satisfied

Sorry guys, been rather busy lately, but I feel like I am close to finishing the drum track. I will have free time the whole weekend, starting tomorrow in the afternoon, so expect the drum track then.
I also tried some rhythm guitar stuff, but I think I'll finish the drums first.

Hey guys,
the soundcard in my computer is bitching...or doing nothing anymore, which means I can't work on anything music related at the moemtn. I am trying to fix it, but might have to get a technician to get things running again.
I'm not sure how long it will take, maybe one of you could make a rogh drum sketch? Or we can just work with a metronome for now? I was programming the drum track at 120 bpm, the original song has 75 bpm I think.
I'll get back to you asap.

Ok, bad news.
I really don't have any good software, so I'll just stick to metronome I guess.

Hey guys,

got the new soundcard. Sorry I kept you waiting for so long. Here is my first try at a drum track, as I said it's at 120 bpm.
The structure is Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Verse and then the chorus part till the end for soloing. The track is 4 minutes long, I can always add in additional parts or copy and paste parts, add or take away fill ins etc.
Just try to work with this track or suggest changes smile.gif

Progress! WELL DONE! I'm diggin the drums smile.gif I've taken the liberty of creating a REAPER project with the drum track. This can serve as our "base" project file and we can grow it from there.

In terms of the arrangment, CHRISTIAN: Can you record a basic, quick and dirty, scratch track for the rythm parts (guitar or bass) just to show what your thinking in terms of the arrangement? I'm not yet clear on how the verse/chorus guitar/bass parts fit in. Are you thinking play them twice or four times as fast as the original song, or play them slower and let the drums be faster behind it?

Here is the file.

HI, I've been busy with some non-guitar related stuff/problems:
My final exam, I'm moving to another place, starting a new job... a lot of changes in my life.
But I'm here again, and re-subscribed to GMC.

I hope we can go on with this soon.
But I agree with Todd, I think I need to hear Christians thoughts about the guitar tempo.

Great to hear, Ulrik!
Sure, I'll come with something within the next few days.
