Ok everyone - this thread is now officially Live smile.gif

Fellow GMC Students (we are all students in the great ways of guitar) - as you can see, the instructors are planning a new collaboration based on "Smoke on the Water", and we will be working on a video as well for advertisement. As you can see, we have been preparing this in secret so far, but we thought we would make this thread visible for you all to see and watch our progress smile.gif

Check back in the thread for the events so far - this is the way I initially described it to the instructors:

--

Hi there super-amazing GMC instructors smile.gif

As I have hinted, the next collaboration we do is intended to be a complete song including a wicked video, vocals bass and even perhaps an organ solo if I can get my fingers moving fast enough smile.gif

As you can see from the title, we are doing a cover version of the old classic Smoke on the Water!

Why this piece? A couple of reasons - although its a riff that has been played to death in the guitar shops of the world, if you listen to it with fresh ears, it is extraordinarily powerful for all of its simplicity. Things have moved on a long way in terms of production and playing since it was recorded, and I know that at GMC we have the talents to create an awesome version of this.

But this is more than a collaboration - we want this to be an advert for GMC too, a showcase for the vast talents that you all have to excite people about joining. So, a kid who just picked up a guitar for the first time googles smoke on the water and finds this amazing video full of incredible players - he then finds out that he can learn to play like this and that he can interact with all these amazing people at GMC!

We will be adding some features and storyline to the video to show this from the perspective of the student as well - I have a few ideas for that I am working on smile.gif

Now, I realize that people either love or hate this song, so I won't hold anyone to any promises they made in the previous thread before they knew the name of the song!

A quick note on copyrights here - this is a full cover version of a song which we usually avoid. Fortunately, Maria checked with the Swedish copyright people and they said that GMC is so awesome that of course we can do a version of it! It has to be our own arrangement and we can't change words or tune, nor can we tab it as we don't have the rights for that, but we are ok apart from that!

Before we start to sign people up I want you to be aware of a couple of things:

- I intend to run this as a more formal collab than previous ones, I want to get the best possible result so we may have to build the track in stages, for instance recording main vocals before backing vocals etc, we may even need to re-record things if they don't fit together - and of course we may have new ideas as we develop this and need to change things around a little - the overall aim is to make this as professional as possible!

- I want to work with WAV files not MP3 - I may set up an ftp server to help with this

- As far as possible I want people to record without effects, especially for the vocals. I'm 50/50 on the lead guitar as so much of the feel comes from the effect in use, but a great solo sound is not always easy to mix, so I will rely on your experience here to do what is best. If possible a dry take and an effected take would give me the best of both worlds!

- To get the best possible video, I really want a lot of footage to choose from, so I would like you all to be prepared to send me video of all of your parts from 2 or even 3 different angles to keep the vid interesting, and footage of you playing along throughout even if you aren't doing anything specific. We'll talk about the vid later though, when we have the track done, so no need to rush into that, you just need to be prepared smile.gif

- Although I have some initial ideas, this is of course a collaboration so I want as much input from the rest of you as I can get!

So, I want to get this arranged in private then we can launch it to the rest of GMC when we have some ideas of how it will all fit together. I have been working on a backing track, and it will continue to evolve throughout this process, but here it is so far - pardon the sloppy playing, I want to get the true professionals to re-record this!

The overall idea is to sing the 3 verses, maybe add in a few guitar solos in between, and then go wild at the end and shred it to the max! It is in G minor, or minor pentatonic at the beginning, but I think we will modulate to A dorian in the keyboard solo at some point although I am still working this out, and will be happy to take any suggestions!

So, we need volounteers! We need:

- Vocalists - depending on how many we get we can split them across the verses (Muris already volounteered)
- Backing Vocalists
- Bass (Bogdan volounteered for this already!)
- Rhythm Guitar
- Lead Guitar

We will try and fit as many solos in as we can, but I don't want the song to be too over the top - lets see how it goes smile.gif

So who's up for it?????????

Ok I have tried vocals a little on this one - and I am thinking about doing it with a low "roary" voice (a little "hetfieldish"). Maybe I will also throw in some high octave screamy choir! smile.gif
