Hey there merry GMCrs, we're happy to announce that the new 'Smells like Winter Video Collab' is ON!

Because we love the feeling of being surrounded by a small army of players such as the fine folks here at GMC, we decided to start a new joint collab! What better setting than the chilly Winter season spiced up with Christmas flavors? So, grab any Christmas or winter themed item - it can be anything from clothes to your dog dressed as a reindeer biggrin.gif and feature them in your video!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BACKING TRACK

We are going to use the backing track from Piotr' lesson - 'Winter tune' :
Attached File  Winter_Tune_Backing_Track.mp3 ( 2.96MB ) Number of downloads: 653

Tempo : 87 BPM
Key : E minor

As before, three of us - Cosmin, Gabriel and Darius - will support you along the way and if you feel stuck, please post your feedback in this thread or send us a PM!

How to enter this collaboration?

1. Download the backing track and open it in your recording software
2. You can wear something Christmasy or in the Winter mood - really, anything that suits the idea of a great Wintery themed collab
3. Record your part in the recording software and with your video cam (if you have the possibility to record video).
You can record anything - a short fill part, rhythm based ideas, or a full lead part (solo).
4. Render one track containing your recording only - 16 bit wave file 44,1 kHz
5. Render one track containing both solo and backing track in an .mp3 format
6. Send us your video (preferably in .mp4 format)

You can send us the last 3 files mentioned, using a dropbox link, or any other transfer service you are used to, by posting them in this thread or attaching them to a private message.

If you can't submit a video, you can send us only the audio files and some pictures of you - it will work out great as well! The more pictures you send, the better will it be for editing in the final video!

When attaching/sending the collab files, please include the source file of the video as well.

As with the previous 'The league of extraordinary axemen' or 'The Day and Night' Collabs, IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER/ ADVANCED/ PRO/ GOD - all styles, approaches and all levels are welcome and you can even play just a short fill if you feel like it!

The whole idea is to get involved and be a part of the big GMC family team!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Collab tips:

As in the previous collabs, we want this one to be as strong as possible, as this will give your playing and progress maximum exposure. So here's what we suggest:

Making short but polished and detailed lines will always give you better results. If you focus on a short part of the backing track, then you will most likely amaze yourself and others! No explicit need to play over the full backing track length, pick any amount of bars you feel most comfortable playing over.

It is always better to come up with something short but catchy or memorable!

Check out these lessons for inspiration:

E minor melodic solo - E minor ballad style slow licks
Winter tune - licks that suit the track, done by Piotr

Scales you could use:

E natural minor (E Aeolian)



E minor pentatonic



Remember - the only thing we require is that you participate and be yourself - there are no rules, and no limits!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline: 25th of January 2014.

Participants : Cosmin Lupu, Darius Wave, Gabriel Leopardi, Opetholic, Doug Lane, jstcrsn, bleez, Miguel, Beat Zbinden, wollace03, Sensible Jones, Caelumamittendum, Todd Simpson, Nimrandir, tflava, Renan, Spase Moonkey, Headbanger

I'll just clear one thing - it's much better when You focus on a short part but with extra thinking and precise workout so You deliver best You can instead of 2 minutes impro tongue.gif Of course improvisations are wellcome as well but we're not able to put such a long runs in a finall vid because probably not much of listeners would be able to go through full 30 minuets video biggrin.gif It's probably obvious but for those who are new to the collabs maybe it will help to choose best part and focus on developing the highest possible performance Your'e able to do smile.gif

I think it would be a good idea to have a time limit? Maybe 45 secs maximum?

yes, 45 secs should be enough. Have in mind that we then do some edition to make everybody's takes fit good and work as a complete song. So maybe even less minutes would be ok!

Any duration works! smile.gif

Final video presents a mix of all the takes made to form a musical sounding piece together.
My suggestion would be to play as much as you like but not force yourself rather try to come up with a short, yet effective solo/rhythm/fills part as that always works the best.

The important idea is to make a statement with your recording - it really doesn't have to be complicated, as it's more important to be memorable smile.gif So, jstcrsn, bleez Miguel, Beat, wollace and Neil - you guys are on the list tongue.gif Thanks for joining the ranks!
