CGR Guitar Instrumental Track

I'm just throwing an idea out here. Why don't we make an instrumental track that would have all of us playing on it. We could break it up into small sections and allow for someone to do something over the track.

What do you guys think about it?



Okay here is the track
http://www.christianguitar.org/forum...ck-start-b.mp3

It's in F#, kind of a rock feel. You have 8 bars counting in (I felt generous) When the bass hits that's when your solo should start. You will then have 16 bars to do whatever. Remember only post your guitar track, and DO NOT CHANGE THE TIMING. This system will help me organize things.

Finished product

If you want to head it up, sure.

This sort of thing has been tried before, and really needs someone who really wants to work on it to get all the pieces moving.

I agree with Jon. I'd be willing to throw down a little track, but the whole process is involved, and someone needs to be gung-ho about it.

Okay, I can lead it... I'll make a rhythm track for it, but first I need to know how many people want to do it and what kind of feel for it.

I would be interested in playing on top of it, but I don't have the time to make the track itself.

I already have a backing track made, I just need to find a good quality way to convert it to MP3.

What I'll do is make a sample track that will give you 2-4 bars of time to get ready and then each person will do a small section overtop of it... I will put all of them together but ONLY post your guitar part here or email it to me (I will provide my email in a while), not your guitar part with the backing track behind it. NOTE: DO NOT CHANGE THE TIMING ON IT, LEAVE IT JUST AS IT WAS

How does 178 bpm sound to you guys?

I'm more interested in what it sounds like than its tempo.

haha agreed

and change it to low quality mp3, we dont need nice quality to play over, you keep the nice non mp3 version yourself and put it all together sounding nice

the only problem with this is how do we know how to solo? if we dont hear each others parts, one of use does a metal, the other a bluesy, etc. if you just put it together wont it just sound...mashed up different songs?

and f# is d#minor for people who solo in minor... d#minor is a strange key....

You can do both major and minor pentatonics in the same key and still have it flow... Listen to BB King, Joe Satriani, Lincoln Brewster, and Joe Bonamassa... they all do this. Also with the 16 bar sections I can arrange the rhythm guitar to fit whatever you guys throw at me.... Also, if anybody has any rhythm ideas you can use them too. Just specify which your part is.

If you want to see what I'm talking about (major and minor pentatonics) check out my vid. I switched between them a lot!
