As you have probably seen, we (the instructors) did a collab which turned out pretty cool (check it here).

Now the time has come to make an even cooler one!


This time around we want everyone to participate! Students, instructors, moderators, ninjas and dogs (etc). The plan is to showcase the diversity of styles we have got at GMC. When we are done with the mix I will put together a video which hopefully will get more youtube views than the last one (~50k and counting). So in a way this can be seen as a competition where the winners get to be featured in a video watched by tens of thousands, playing with some of the best guitarists out there. Not so bad, huh?!

So who "wins"? -The ones with the most musical and unique takes (according to my taste...). So let's get rolling:
--------------------------

BACKINGS
Attached File  big_collab_bt.mp3 ( 8.16MB ) Number of downloads: 919

Attached File  big_collab_bt_drums_only.mp3 ( 8.16MB ) Number of downloads: 391

('Drums only' are for those of you want to get really crazy.)

BPM: 135
Tonality: A minor and E minor, the outro is in E major (N.B. Tune down to Eb)

My take:


You can try the following scales if you are using standard tuning.

B major / Ab minor / Ab minor pentatonic
you can also try
Eb minor / Eb minor pentatonic

If you are using Eb tuning (like me)

C major / A minor / A minor pentatonic
you can also try
E minor / E minor pentatonic
--------------------------

RULES

Start date Friday August 13th. Takes uploaded prior to this date will be removed, this is because we want everyone to have "fresh" ears when recording their takes. We don't really have a collab deadline - I will notify in advance when I think we are starting to get enough takes.

Video requirement - that's right. The end result will be a video, so I need to know that people who submit an audio take can also record a video (not valid for instructors). You can either link to an old rec take of yours or record a new video. But you need to provide evidence of your video capabalities when submitting your audio take(s). The easiest way is of course if you record audio and video at the same time.

Audio
The idea is that anyone may have a go at any part(s) and then I will do my best to glue it all together. All styles, speeds and instruments accepted.

Please send me all takes starting from "point 0" on the backing - to make it easier for me to mix this. You can upload the mp3 here or send me the wave file for optimal quality ([email protected] - please use rapidshare.com or yousendit.com)

Please do not use any reverb at all - this way I can apply the same reverb to all takes to make the mix sound more unison.
--------------------------

I am personally having a blast with this backing - and expect to not only participate in this collab but also record a complete song of my own with it (most of it is actually already done! wink.gif ). I hope many people will enjoy the backing so we can get a lot of participants.

So what are you waiting for - join the fun! biggrin.gif


EDIT: COLLAB NOW FINISHED, HERE IS THE RESULT:

Well Vaidya - if you do an attempt you will either

1) get into the final mix - everyone is happy! Or...

2) not get into the final mix - but learn a heck of a lot while trying, everyone is still happy!

So in other words you have got absolutely nothing to loose! wink.gif

The backing track is written to suit my original song idea. You only need to play over a part of it (if you want to).

Depending on what kind of takes we get, we could make it shorter, longer or even split it up into two different tracks.

You can do just one part!

Yes if your take makes it to the final mix we must have a video from you!

Can't wait! If the last one is any indication, this one is going to be AMAZING!

The start has a Funky POLKA feel to it! It's very light hearted and should be loads of fun.

Hehe yes it's fun and groovy to jam over + there is a nice contrast when the rhythm guitars kicks in!
