Hey GMC crew! I remembered a very cool video with Steve Lukather, which unfortunately can't be found anywhere on Youtube anmore - although I got luck and found it here: http://vbox7.com/play:f5b402a3&al=2&vid=5022950

It shows how he records small bits and pieces - like single note melodies, chord vamps and such, to build a monster funky groove!!

I though we can do that too! How about if we all record a small melody/ chord sequence/ riff just like Luke did in order to build our own big monster funky groove?? biggrin.gif Let's use the A minor pentatonic and A blues scales!

I started the whole think by using the C and D notes which you can check out here in the attachment smile.gif The tempo is 80 BPM, so all you have to do, is import my track into your audio workstation - Reaper/ Logic/ Cuebase - whatever you are using and record a small idea of yourself which has to be as balanced and short as possible! Post the whole track here and I will take care of the mix biggrin.gif Pay attention to what everybody else recorded so that you can have a good idea about what you can do smile.gif

Check out the video in the link and you will get the hang of it biggrin.gif and let's try to finish this until the end of this month smile.gif

Let's groove mates!!

This obviously is not my addition as I know what you are wanting us to do, but it was just to bloody fun to mess around with. I've never built a song like that. It's like playing with Lego's. I did several take's and just snapped them in and out playing around with it. I like this idea. I'll be building groovy Lego songs from now on.... LOL!!

HA! That is brilliant. Sounds like the soundtrack to certain 'adult entertainment' from the 70s..... not that I would watch such things rolleyes.gif

Nice idea! Musical Lego bricks biggrin.gif I like what I'm hearing so far, so let's see what the other guys come up with. Erik, sure, go ahead for bass if you'd like and Bogdan, I'd be honored if you'd throw in some thumpin' of your own! biggrin.gif

Cosmin, do I play over your part and Bogdans bass as a backing?
