> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hello Guys!! Welcome to my first Video Collab at GMC! biggrin.gif

The idea is to make something big! We will use an original song that I composed some time ago to create a GMC Hit. This will be a VideoCollab/VideoClip so you can record yourself playing, singing backing vocals, acting, head banging or doing some funny things.

Kris will be recording the lead vocals but we need to write some lyrics for the song. Could you please help us with it?
We also need some guitar players that record arrangements, guitar solos, licks, the riffs, some modern noises, whatever you think that could work over this tune. Remember to film youself doing it and to post both the video (mp4 format) and the mp3 file (with and without the backing track).

I’m posting the full mix with Kris idea for the chorus and also another shorter file with some ideas (the lyrics has no sense, it’s just a reference) for the voice melodies of the other sections that I have recorded when I first composed the song.. You can use it to write the lyrics or you can suggest other melodic ideas.

I will edit the structure of the tune if it’s necessary, so feel free to record all the ideas that appear.

The tune is in E minor and the tempo is 145.

Who is in??

biggrin.gif

Full Song:
Attached File  GMC_Video_Collab___Full_Song.mp3 ( 4.21MB ) Number of downloads: 438


Vocal Reference (sorry for my lazy vocal performance... it's just a reference! tongue.gif ):
Attached File  Video_Collab_Vox_Ref.mp3 ( 1.4MB ) Number of downloads: 253



IMPORTANT: If you are going to record a guitar solo or something with your guitar please also post here a file with the line signal without any distortion, amp simluation or process if it's possible. This will allow us to have a more uniform sound. Thanks!

YEAH!! I love the chorus chords (I can hear strong melodies over them in my head), this is very exciting!

edit - just heard your solo Gabe, awesome! It's rock n roll on steroids!

Hey guys,

Here are the lyrics i wrote for this one smile.gif I will make a melody line also. Hope you like it and let me know what do you think about it smile.gif

Excellent ! Here they are in plain text, in case some one wants to polish or add to it:

QUOTE
::INTRO:: (0:00-0:15) (0:57-1:11)


::VERSE:: (0:15-0:30) (1:11-1:24)
Rockin' hard
Talkin' hard
Helping each other
To become a guitar god

(Can be sing twice or we can wrote another 4 lines)

::PRE-CHORUS:: (0:30-0:45) (1:24-1:40)
Practice
makes us better
Practice
keeps us strong
We are
ready
to rock
your socks
rock your
soooocks

::FIRST CHORUS:: (0:45-0:57)
come join my friend
to this awesome journey
that will make you a
better player

::SECOND CHORUS:: (1:40-1:54)
come join my friend
to this awesome journey
that will take you to the
next level


@ Bogdan & Ivan, since we're in the beginning of this I think you can just pop in where you feel that you can add something!

Gabe has the final word though (perhaps he'll will want both a line and amp bass track to make mixing easier)

Agreed about the lyrics - I have already played around with them (al though I have a sore throat) and the idea will work well!

It would be cool though with input from more people!

No problem, I'll record some parts, feel free to use it any way possible, it's all good! smile.gif

I wanted to record today, but trying to do a crazy video instead of just playing (as Gab suggested). So, a bit more time on this one, but I'll have it in a week or so probly!) smile.gif

Awesome collab and song! smile.gif

Totally tempting - wish I didn't have so much on my plate these days :/

I do a lot of song listening at work, and often while I'm programming, a lyrical idea will pop up - if i happen across a hook or something I think might be interesting, I'll pass it along - at least I can try to contribute in that small way.

Looking forward to seeing the end-result!
