    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.

    Only one chorus? Man, that's hard to do!

    Oh, yeah, I'm in.

    I'd love to do this, but lost my recording ability recently. Count me in anyway and I'll see what I can do. Round #2 would be fine.

    OK we have enough for round 1 and 2, (any more will go into #3, let's see how this works out first)

    Check your PMs over the next couple of days, I'll send instructions inc technical specs.

    This could be fun, it's not meant to be a contest or anything - the sequence is a very basic 3 chord blues in a slow 12/8 so technical proficiency/flash shredding is not required.

    I'll ask Harri if we can publish the final track on a page on the main site, but you will all be sent the final mix file before it goes public to give your consent to it being published on here.

    Anyone else interested, keep posting as I hope we'll go into round #3 or 4.
