Hello everybody!

Welcome to my new GMC collaboration. This one is based on the style of Metallica and once again our founder Kristofer Dahl is already working on lyrics and vocals for this one!!

As we want to make this song a cool as possible we would like to invite everybody to join and record your solos, guitar arrangements and ideas over the track to use it for the final mix.

Backing track: Attached File  Metallica_Style_Collab.mp3 ( 1.82MB ) Number of downloads: 259


Tempo: 116 bpm

Key and Scale choices:

The song has 5 sections: Intro (00:00 to 00:18), Verse (00:18 to 00:34), pre-chorus (00:34 to 00:43), chorus (00:43 to 01:00) & bridge/riff (01:00 to end). All parts are in E minor except the pre-chorus in which the song modulates to F#m. This pre-chorus is a bit complex because it also includes the b5 note, so adding it to the Pentatonic minor scale can be a good idea. Beginners can skip this part.

The most obvious scale choice is E pentatonic minor or E blues scale everywhere except over the pre-chorus where you should switch to F#m pentatonic.







Finally, you can also use minor scales (E minor over most of the parts and F# minor over the pre-chorus)







IMPORTANT INFO About files required:

In order to make the things easier for compiling takes and mixing I need that each participant shares 3 files:

- Audio file with the mix of the backing and your guitar.
- Audio file only with your guitar (If possible this audio should have the same length than the mix version)
- Video of you playing the solo, and if it's not possible a picture. (Mp4 format if it's possible)

The best way to share this is compressing in a zip file to be downloaded from here or using sharing service as dropbox, wetransfer, and copying the link here.

If you decide to share your files using soundcloud please remember to "allow downloads".

Thanks!


DEADLINE: June 25th

Hey Kris and Gabriel,

I am just brainstorming here, but could we possibly do two verses (one with me and one with Kris)? Of course if other people want to sing too we could work on that too, and make it even more of a song than just a one-verse thing? smile.gif

Sounds cool to me - you should defintiely record your lines they way you want them.

I am working on vocals over the entire backing. Since it's pretty short (compared ot a "normal" song) one option is definitely to go for an extnded structure. Ultimately it will be up to Gab to mix n match when he has our ideas.

It's really cool these collabs make you want to start experimenting with your voice cool.gif that's the whole idea!

Do you have preview of the lyrics so far? Should I write my "own" verse? I'm just thinking we should maybe work in on a similar style of lyrics, so that you don't sing about death and destruction and I sing about butterflies and flowers. laugh.gif

haha no that would be a bit too original perhaps biggrin.gif

My lyrics are pretty raw so far and might not make much sense. Hopefully they will, with the recorded vocals.

I am not yet sure how I will be singing - ie if I will attempt rock style singing or more on the barky side (as with the previous collab). Right now I am just practicing clean singing over the backing to establish the melody/lyrics, and practice timing and pitch.

Draft lyrics:

4, 3, 2, 1
You hear me count the days left to the new world order, hear me count x2

you hear me fu***g c**t?

When you groove so nicely
I feel surpressed cause you’re bouncing on my chest

When you speak so freely
I loose my mind cause I’m fed up with your kind

With a thousand lies build a temple of stone
Dig for fame, spread your name, but the blame is…

…on you x3
the blame is on you

4,3
hear me count the days left to the new world order
2,1
hear me count the days left to the new world order

Cool! I like it! It's aggressive as the backing deserves it. I think that giving this one the structure of a full song is a great idea! So feel free to write and record for two or three verses and then I'll give this one the best structure.

Nice playing! I can see you comfortable over this groove! There is cool stuff happening on this one. You have more time so continue polishing the ideas to provide the best solo possible for this one.
