Cosmin Lupu
Hey GMC brothers and sisters!

This here is the new collab! T'was meant to sound like we are driving on a deserted road in the middle of the night and all our thoughts are swirling through our heads, good, bad, sad, happy, furious, satisfied, all that could ever cross our minds!

Try the backing track and let's see what you can come up with!

Here are the tech-specs:

Tempo: 92 BPM

Scale: E Aeolian (having G major as a parent scale)




Progression: Em7 CM7 Am7

Material format - as usual, please send all materials in an archive using rapidshare or a similar transfer service.

- one track containing your take (wav.)
- one track containing your take over the backing track (wav.)
- the video file (avi.)

Deadline: April 20th 2012 (please be on time with the takes wink.gif)

All that being said, let's make a mix of emotions on this one!

Cosmin

PS: on the 12th of April we shall discuss this track at the video chat and I shall offer suggestions on how you can build your takes smile.gif

I kinda went Steve Vai on it. tongue.gif Yeah, crazy outfit too. wink.gif

I attached the POD Farm preset I am using in case somebody is curious.

Cosmin Lupu
Thank you Brandon! biggrin.gif Awesome take matey! And the outfit would allow you to get lost among the fellow drivers at night tongue.gif
Cosmin Lupu
Gentlemen! The takes entries are over today at midnight! biggrin.gif This is shaping up nicely so far wink.gif

Gitarrero

Come one...I'm sure you want a german take, don't you Cosmin? wink.gif
Gitarrero
Hey Cosmin,

here it is now biggrin.gif

I actually jammed over the whole backing track, I just couldn't stop laugh.gif
Once I get your RS-adress I can send you the video and audio files.



Christian
Cosmin Lupu
Hey Christian! Ok man! The German guy always gets the gig right? biggrin.gif

Nice take - it gave me a feeling of driving near the seaside somehow, taking me back in maybe 92 or 93 I don't know why but this is what I felt biggrin.gif

My address is cosmin@gmc.my wink.gif

Cosmin
Gitarrero
For sure Cosmin laugh.gif

Cosmin Lupu
Good morning team!

Here's the final mix with a little tune up wink.gif



Alrightie guys, first things first I want to congratulate you all on great melodies and playing! Secondly, I wasn't able to implement DeGroot's vid as it simply did not want to stream in vegas sad.gif it was working otherwise, but it kept screwing up when implemented in there. I'm sorry mate, hopefully things will work out next time! Your take was supposed to open the collab vid - very melodic and nice effects there sad.gif

John - I like the way you developed the melodies in your take and the pedal phrasing.

thefireball: - Brandon, your tone is very rounded up, and your playing has a lot of taste, shape, it is very articulated and clean! I got nothing to observe man! Very good!

Gitarrero: Hey Christian! As I have told you in this thread, your whammy bar tricks make me think about driving at nigh near the seaside back in the early 90s tongue.gif Some Whitesnake video perhaps? Anyway, I took the nicest part out of your take. Make sure to keep a close focus on timing mate, as there are some slips in the whole take here and there.

Weepee: as with everyone, you too Mr. Ville have shown melodic skills smile.gif good going mate. As with Christian - there are some timing issues in your whole take, so focus on being more in sync with the track, ok?

Ben: I granted you the place of honor in closing the collab mate! Thanks for joining wink.gif

I have not yet decided on the next one smile.gif so, suggestions are ALWAYS welcome, in fact, why don't we discuss about this here:

Ben Higgins
Great playing everyone. Fireball could perhaps have the best tone at GMC ? wink.gif

Although Ville is coming up close with some sexy tone.. your tone has definitely got even better V-Man wink.gif

Christian is turning into Michael Angelo Batio with his speed picking moment there.. biggrin.gif

John, great to meet you.. some really nice pedal tone licks coming from a jazz guitar cool.gif

C-Maestro, I love those unexpected chromatic tones in your solo ! smile.gif
WeePee
I think my part is bit out of sync ? Does somebody else notice ? Or maybe my phone is showing it wrong ??!
DeGroot
Bummer that my video wouldn't work. Hope it wasn't something on my end?? I guess I'll drop my audio version off if anyone would like to take a listen wink.gif

http://soundcloud.com/degroot-2/driving-at-night

Very nice sounding takes there!


@ WeePee: It does seem the audio/vid is out of sync for some reason

Wow, that was excellent ! Maybe if you upload your video take to Youtube so we can all see it there, I'd be interested to see it in action smile.gif
thefireball
Your video was definitely out of sync Ville. Some videos were fine, but not all.

I think it's due to youtube man sad.gif they are saying that there may be sync issues. I have no clue yet on how to ditch this, but I'll look into it.
dark dude
Christian's take is out of sync, too, but no biggie, can be fixed easily smile.gif

Nice takes, guys!!

Hey mate! Your take was excellent as I said! Unfortunately, I had issues while working with it in Vegas - maybe next time you could try and export it in a more general format?

Say, what sort of collab would you like to be playing in? smile.gif Why don't you take a look here and let me know wink.gif

all the best
