    award star SOTW Blues recording

    Just for fun, I wondered about a little recording project you might all like to participate in.

    I have a basic blues in F backing track. If those of us who have some recording facility each play a chorus, I'll mix it all together on the track and post the final result.

    If there are loads of people interested I'll maybe do a few more, but for now I can cope with about 8, so the first 8 that express an interest I'll send an mp3 of the backing track.

    All you need do is record one chorus and send me back just the saxophone part as a wav file (44.1 kHz please) and I will put it all together - the SOTW blues.

    The next round will be a little way off, but anyone interested should now email me, not PM (as my inbox is hard to manage):

    CONTACT PETE ABOUT THE BLUES RECORDING

    and choose the SOTW blues option from the dropdown menu.

    EDIT:

    All the finished tracks will be uploaded on the SOTW BLUES RECORDING page]

    I'd like to give it a go. I might have to spend time figuring out how to record and extract the wav file, but I think I can mentally picture how to proceed. Any notes you can provide on how you would do this would be helpful.

    Sorry, apparently I can't read, so I sent a PM.
    I'm still interested if there is a slot left.

    I guess you just record the 2nd or 3rd chorus that you usually build up to. :-)

    I don't know about you, but I always play things better the 2nd or 3rd time I play it.

    So, I've decided to skip the first time.
