We need a collaborative project!
« on: July 06, 2010, 09:15:03 AM »
I want to start the ball rolling on this idea of doing something which we could all contribute to. I think it could be fun to test the waters with something simple, which after building a baking track, we could all do a little solo, kind of a trading 8s kind of thing. What are your thoughts?

I'd be up for it as long as the changes are not TOO adventurours, I would really struggle to play over most jazz progressions.

Agreed, no Giant steps or Proto Cosmos. A simple dom vamp, with an interesting bridge? Something like Red Baron?

Sounds good to me! I love a good extended guitar/keyboard trade-off.
Now if we could just get an electric violinist....

Hey, maybe we could get Kenny G to spew some lame-ass, jive, pseudo bluesy, out-of-tune, noodling, wimped out, f***** up playing all over it :D

Hiya, Tom. It would be cool if we could get this going again. It's been stagnant since this past summer and it never made it past preliminary discussion(i.e. we ain't doing "Giant Steps" :) ).
It's gonna be a task to coordinate such a session, but we have an amazingly positive vibe on this forum, so if anyone could pull it off, why not us(by us, I don't necessarily mean me...I'm still a bit self-conscious  :-[ )?
Apparently, the official Allan Holdsworth forum(now defunct) did community-based recordings via the forum at one point.

Yeah it would be great to do such a thing! Perhaps as mentioned before we could start with a backing track and each lay down a solo then for future collaborations use a real drummer and bassist.

There's a great collaboration wiht a good format on YouTube from some amazing players:

Suhr Mega Jam -- Tom Quayle, Andy Wood, Martin Miller, Rick Graham

Well, it just so happens that we have our own bassplayers, keyboardists, drummers and about 470 guitar players; so, we could, in theory, construct our own backing track, which was the plan to begin with, I think.  The problem is there seems to be a lack of interest, lately.

How about we all get together and do a Christmas Tune?

But, with a Fusion bent?

Change the Rhythm a little? That type of thing.

Maybe a Samba?

Maybe something with a couple of interesting Time Changes?

5/4 Bridge in Let It Snow, or something like that?
