Hey GMC and welcome to a new VIDEO Collab - I call it the DESERT BUS COLLAB ! Why ?? Because 2 of our 'lovable' GMC regulars (A certain German and Finn who shall remain nameless)decided to start a campaign of terror against me, urging me to come and do a new collab for you all. wink.gif Among their suggested materials of 'Inspiration' was this awesome bus simulator game, called.. you guessed it, 'DESERT BUS.'



However, never one to shy away from a challenge.. I actually went and spent some time in the American desert and recorded some ambient sounds which you will hear on the following backing track.

Attached File  Desert_Bus_Collab.mp3 ( 1.37MB ) Number of downloads: 374


For my musical cues, I was inspired by a vintage SEGA game called 'Road Rash II', which featured a level in Arizona. I love the fat, greasy 6/8 dawdling groove so I stole the idea...

Tempo: 110bpm
Key: D

The bass line is just the root note of D, with a brief minor pentatonic C,A,C bit at the end of the 8th bar. The solitary D note means you have free reign to abuse as many of the D related modes as you wish because there is no overall minor or major tonality. The tonality is ambiguous. D Lydian run you say ? Why not, indeed. D Phyrigan ? You evil little so and so - do it !

If you want to show me your practise runs or your takes in all their glory then by all means chuck a Youtube video in the thread. However, when it comes to the time for sending me stuff....
Don't forget to gimme:

Your isolated guitar audio track
Your video

Deadline is 8th August !! cool.gif

who would terrorize a loveable guy such as yourself? I sure hope it stops soon, if you need help, you know where to find me. My friend Ville and I might be able to find these guys.
As for the collab, it is great to see you back in action and I am in!

That's a lovely tone Mark.. and nice use of tapped notes too smile.gif

What do you record in ? Can you not just take the bare audio file that you recorded and send it ??
