Hey friends!

Welcome to the first GMC Hip Hop Collaboration!! smile.gif

I've recorded a backing track with a hip hop groove, and influences from alt rock and modern pop. Kristofer Dahl is already writing lyrics for this so I'm sure that we'll have a new GMC HIT!

Don't miss our previous collab final video: Link HERE.


Backing track: Attached File  Hip_Hop_Collab.mp3 ( 3.66MB ) Number of downloads: 173



Jamtrack: Attached File  Jamtrack.mp3 ( 9.44MB ) Number of downloads: 94



Backing without Guitar Arrangements: Attached File  Hip_Hop_Collab_without_gtr_arrangements.mp3 ( 2.19MB ) Number of downloads: 43




However, in order to make this one the cooler possible we need your guitar solos, arrangements, chords, bass guitar, backing vocals or whatever you would like to add to this one!


Tempo: 86bpm


Chord progression & Scale choices:


The chord progression is: C Am - Em

The backing is in E minor so the scales that you can use for soloing are E minor and E pentatonic minor.







IF YOU NEED HELP TO USE ALL THIS INFO LET ME KNOW! I'M HERE TO GUIDE YOU.


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: January 3rd

This one will be very interesting for sure! Hopefully a bit easier for me to pull off than the previous one.

Looking forward to see what takes we get!

Very nice, when I have lyrics I will post them here - maybe you could record something on the same theme. Or perhaps you want to suggest lyrics?

Go ahead and shoot some lyrics at us when you have, then I'll see what I can come up with smile.gif It's been a long time since I did some rapping, but it could be fun to give it another go smile.gif

That sounds great SJ!! smile.gif


I've just added a new backing without lead guitars to make it easier to record solos, or other arrangements over the track.

Here's a quickly sketched idea:

https://soundcloud.com/benjamin-storm-linnebjerg/rap-preview-for-gab

What's with the attitude? Don't you know that your lattitude will determine your fame?
Beneficial discipline will see you gain prosperity and acclaim,
so claim your place and name yourself the chosen, ambrosian,
You've set the pace, so don't be frozen, you can't be broken
by the people who say you could never live your dream
cause to me it seems you've got the skill, the will to succeed at the speed of light
Giving heed to the need of proper exercise is the way to proceed
beyond the walls of their constraint to find your promised land
But it's no pain, no gain, you've got to maintain your goals and plans
So be bold and break free of the chains holding you back
You gotta get your mind set to the mindset of staying on track
Determined dedication and devotion to push yourself
And your essential potential will speak for itself, man

Tried adding a second verse:

So be bold and break free of the chains holding you back
You gotta get your mind set to the mindset of staying on track
Determined dedication and devotion to push yourself
And your essential potential will speak for itself

Potentially essential to your exponential growth is overcoming obstacles both high and low
but you're capable, unbreakable, you knew these things were inescapable
So stay focused, there's no hocus pocus, they just try to provoke us
Prognosis denied, you've taken the strides that were needed
You heeded your call, so be greeted as one of the chosen few
Cause who else could be you, but you? You see, you've come to be
The greatest you could ever be, you broke the chains that held you back instrumentally
And now you have found your place right here at GMC

Working on some ideas. This one is difficult for me to find room. Mostly a effects addition. Used an acoustic guitar with a partial capo at 12 thru axefx, bit of grit, then doubled it with a formant and delay and eq.

Working on some guitar lead ideas with the 'sans' vocal track and the acoustic/ambient stuff I added. Not much but maybe I'll find something in there in the next few days. Doesn't mesh with the vocals though.

Wou! I'm amazed of your lyrics and the expression of your performance on this one. I love it! I think that this lines with some melodic stuff by Kris will make this one a hit! smile.gif

Great job man! I think that everything works for the track. Don't worry about vocals, the song will be longer and will include musical parts so the more lead guitars we receive, the cooler the track will be. Remember that I've provided a backing that doesn't includes guitar arrangements, to give more room to play.

Please share the only guitars tracks.

Thanks for the words, Gabriel.

Can we possibly extend the deadline? I want to do a few more better takes, but unfortunately I have become ill and have lost my voice by having a cold and coughing and sore throat.

Besides that my computer has failed me. Either my graphics card or motherboard. I'm unable to enter Windows or even really see anything. Tried every possible solution. I was thinking about upgrading anyway, but not till in 8 months or so, when I have saved up money. My parents are suggesting I loan some money from them and pay them back over the next 8 months so, so I can buy a new computer, or upgrade the parts in my current one.
