Welcome to GMC Virtual bands!!! Where it all comes together!



The ultimate goal for this venture is mainly to have fun, its a way of playing with other people across the internet and putting into practice all your hard work, but apart from that I think it will help us develop as players.

You need to be involved with something with an objective, you can keep all your practice routines going, carry on learning lessons developing new techniques then use these bands to put it all together cool.gif

In order to keep it all pleasant and fun, some basic guidlines have been set forth so we ask that each participating member be aware of them. smile.gif

It may be worth a quick read through the collaboration guidlines as the principle involved here is pretty much the same.

The new format will consist of three bands:
  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced
Each month we will have an open sign-up for Band Leaders for each Band, then, a Leader will be picked at random.

Members can sign up under there respective level (please be honest here) and a group of 5 will be randomly picked. This will be the group for that month. At this point, it will be up to the group to decide on what they want to do. We hope that this will open up more opportunity for other members to join in. smile.gif

"Band Leaders" will be responsible for organising their bands, setting "record by dates" etc (with help if needed of course), They will also need recording facilities/software etc a reasonable knowledge of recording would be good to either do final mixes for your group or help other members to do it, also to set up drum tracks and bass backing if necessary and will need to comunicate with the band members over songs, song parts etc. A thread will be set up for each band, that can be used to discuss song parts and what not. Keep in mind that being the leader will require a little more work on your part. smile.gif


"Band Members" will need to have facilities/software to record their parts and send them to the "Band Leader" Suggestions etc involvement in song disscussions is the key to this working well.


Please remember these bands are for you to enjoy and hopefully help all of us gain a further understanding of playing with others.
Can I also remind you that should you decide a cover song not to post the tabs on GMC but use an outside resource such as ultimate-guitar.com - Thanks


If and when you are picked,members will need to be active in their threads,(Please Subscibe To The Thread) this is to keep comunication going so everyone knows whats going on, recording of parts will need to be uploaded within a decent timescale (this should be regulated by the appointed Band Leader), comunication is basically the key here, its not fair on active members to wait endlessly for the odd one to upload their takes without good reason, things happen that are beyond our control sometimes, so just let people know!

Band Leaders will need to follow up their members if activity from them is too slow, Band Leaders needing help with this can ask to chase up if required but should try and deal with the problem directly if possible, removal from a band for a member that has shown no signs of involvement at all could well be a possibility depending upon the nature of their disappearence, We will not enjoy one little bit removing someone so please DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN.

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN GUYS & GALS !! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Sounds very fun. it seems like the most in demand people will by far be anyone who can do bass/drums/other backing stuff though as we obviously have an abundance of guitarists wink.gif I'd like to get into one of these bands, but I have enough deadlines on my plate right now so I'll wait for this new part of GMC to get well established I think.

Good call smells!

Ok, you may have seen that I`ve closed the thread to start your band, this is because we`ve reached the limit of five bands that I origianlly set in order to keep things simple to begin with.

Looking at the band genres we have all rock bands mainly, which is great, no problems with that smile.gif but I`ll consider opening it up further if someone PMs me wanting to start a different style of band, Blues, Jazz etc

I wish to be a Instructor Band Leader but now I'm very busy (I cannot record more lesson so you can imagine how busy I'm now !!) I'm working hard in the farmacy to get lot of money because next year (maybe in February) I will left all to dedicate my live to the music !!! so I will need money 'cos I know the begining will be very very very hard and I don't win too much money with my orchestra, specially in this months... so, when I left my job we will talk about that point !! smile.gif
