Welcome to my new Video Collab - When Spiders Attack !!

Some of you will remember that I spontaneously composed this track in a previous video chat and the name was picked at random by Gary (aka Blister !) so that's where the origins of this track are smile.gif

I went for an 80's American style commercial hard rock vibe.. so this could be the soundtrack to blasting down the interstate in a Corvette and then cruising down town to pick up a burger and fries! cool.gif

[attachment=29197:When_Spi...s_Attack.mp3]

The main key for everything is G# Minor so the G# Minor Scale will work over the whole thing. If the G# Minor scale works then the G# Minor Pentatonic automatically works too. However, feel free to experiment with other modes and things !!

Chords are:

Main riff: G#Minor7, Eadd9, F#add11, C#Minor7
2nd riff: E5, G#Minor, F#, C#Minor, E5, G#Minor, F# and back to the beginning...

You don't have to play over the whole thing, just do whatever you like smile.gif

So, as you see this is a VIDEO Collab so what I will from you is:

-Video footage (please leave the sound on if you can so it's easier to place when editing together !)
-basic mix of your solo so I can hear how it sounds over the track/where it goes
-isolated solo track to use for the audio mix

What I recommend doing is if you want to upload and share your take with everybody like we normally do, then you could either embed a Youtube vid or upload an mp3. When it comes to sending me all the video files I recommend you to send them in a pm with a download link. The audio files you could upload straight to the forum and I'll take them from there ! smile.gif

Deadline for this collab is Wednesday 24th October

Let's rock, American Style !! cool.gif

Tempo is 155 bpm smile.gif



Hmmm.... I just submitted a video and recording at 155BPM and found it much slower than other submissions.

Are you sure that's not 185 BPM?

Or is it just my setup is slowing the track down.
Damn! will have to resubmit today. Thanks for the deadline extension.

Hi Mike !

Was just about to reply to your pm when I saw your posts so I'll reply here if you don't mind smile.gif

First off: welcome to the collab sir !! cool.gif

Yes, I also noticed that the backing track sounded slowed down. Not sure how that would happen. Maybe try importing it again and seeing what tickable options appear when you're about to import into your trackline. It may have something ticked that stretches it.. ?

I love that bend you do around 0:40.. very tasteful.. all in all, the second half is the strongest half.. good to have you on board ! cool.gif

Hey, there's always room for the Toddinator !! cool.gif

As I said to Christophe, I held back the End of Collaboration Demon for one day. He's not happy.. he wants to come in and close it down but he's got to listen to me ! wink.gif

Hi everybody,

New to all this so bear with me!

My first video had a backing track that was too slow at 155 bpm, so I've bumped it up a bit (185 bpm) to match others.

Hope it fits in okay.

Here it is:

Thanks for your videos guys and thanks for the track Ben.

Mike

This collab is gonna be huge ! There must be about 12 or 13 of us on this ! cool.gif

Why do you guys think this collab has become so big ? Is it the backing track ? The fact it's a video collab ? smile.gif

Hey, Nice one, Christophe !! Like the 80's bandana too biggrin.gif

Really love those whammy bar accents too, really effective !

And yes, I opened Pandora's Box with this collab laugh.gif

You're on a roll Ben don't question it! biggrin.gif I think it somewhat has to do with the style and quality of the backing yes. It just seems there are alot of us that can relate to it and it is improvisationally friendly. And yeah Spiders! laugh.gif Keep it going man!

Agreed. Having a rockin' track is a big part of that. I also think once some takes get rolling more people are inclined to participate. Once I saw some takes I was like, "oh, I have to get in on the fun too". The collab title is intriguing as well. Nice choice Blister. smile.gif
