Ok guys, let's get this thing underway! This is going to be a video collaberation of our talented members doing a cover of Cliffs of Dover! I have been speaking to Ivan about how to undertake this, and we decided that we would break the song up into 20 or 30 second sections and assign that time frame to participants so they can learn that one section. Once all the videos are collected, I'll splice them together and we'll have the complete song! So, since this is different than a usual collaberation, and the fact that the song is only 4 minutes long...we will only be able to have 8 or 9 people depending on how long the sections are. But, I think that it will be really fun for those who are able to play this very difficult song! So...who can play this thing...and who wants in?! We'll give it two weeks for the video upload deadline. This thread is just for signups...and then when we have 8 people we will decide who wants to play which part and go from there!

p.s. Here is the backing track. The first 30 seconds or so are silent, as that is when EJ is cranking out that crazy intro solo...who is brave enough to take on THAT part?! tongue.gif

How about two weeks? Is that enough time? That will make the deadline for video uploading December 06!

Absolutely not...plenty of time! If you have the skills for this one, go for it!

When we have all the people that want to get involved, I'll break the song up into parts closest to 30 seconds that flow properly. Then, if people have a preference, they can request a certain section!

I want to do it but I don't know if I'm capable as I have never tried the track. I love the song. Are there any easy sections?

I didn't try to play it yet, but from listening I think probably easiest part is first verse.

Intro scares me, tongue.gif and the rest of the song seems to be on progressive difficulty compared to the first verse.

This thread is just for signups...and then when we have 8 people we will decide who wants to play which part and go from there!


By the way. To make things easier, specially in the mix, we should probably use the same reference and talk in terms of bars.

I think this is pretty much perfect tab
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/e/eric..._guitar_pro.htm

So, the section I want to do is bars 37 to 61.

Gus, can you send me that tab version in email or message? Everytime I go to Ultimate Guitar website, I get bombarded with popups and I can never get to the tab itself!

Ok...so now we have:

Tjchep
ParalyzedHorse
ErikEklund
Gus
Ivan
and possibly OrganizedConfusion

Almost full!

I wanted to get involved as well...but after trying to get some sections down last night, I had to come to the conclusion that I am definitely NOT ready to tackle this collab! So, I'll stay on the organization side of it! tongue.gif
