.double post edit...sorry! doh!
You can never have too many guitarists!!!Uncle Phil said:I was thinking of starting with a cover to make it easy to agree on what should be played by whom and when, and to establish exactly how it'd all work.
But I like the idea of just evolving something between ourselves. If we were all together in a rehearsal room what would happen? We'd probably get started jamming with something like a 12 bar blues, maybe a slow shuffle. That way everyone knows what's coming next. Record us a drum track, with the appropriate fills, for that, BTFB, say 6 verses.
All the guitarists can take a solo verse each!
Shall we say, in A?
But I think we still need a central file store, where anyone can download the tracks others have recorded. They'll need to be able to at least hear them while they record their own against it. Just sending files to each other will limit who can do what and when. When we've got a whole mass of files, anyone who wants to, and has the appropriate software, can play producer and put it all together.
I run ProTools LE at home though, so if you want a hand mixing/mastering anything just give me a shout.
