    Glad you asked. The plan here is have members collaborate on tunes in this. We make the tracks downloadable so other players can use something someone else posted and build on it. This just started and only a few players have gotten on board so far but others have expressed an interest and will be getting on board soon. It will be fun web jamming with everyone.

    Yea, the piano track is kick-ass. I've always liked dramatic piano stuff where you see the player playing with a sort of stern conviction. Very musical, It seems.

    Cool! Toss up the rock track and let's rock! :dude:

    I think it first started out to be the "Show me your Lips" thread, but there ended up being an issue with management.

    *edit* - Ummmm ...that was supposed to be funny guys. :shrug:

    Here's one that's ready for vocals if anyone what's to write something to add to it or just rip some leads over it. I spotted it after my bassist buddy Joe put a killer bass line to a another guitar players kick ass rock track.

    I put a short lead on it at 1:46 but the rest is wide open.


    The gear I used for "Energized":
    Guitar: MIM Tele with blade type bridge humbucker
    Amp: LePou LeGion amp plugin - Green channel, Drive @ 3 o'clock, bumped up Mid & Contour (this is a free plugin download guys)
    EFX: Valhalla Supermassive for reverb & delay (also a free plugin)

    BPM: 147 Key: D



    Time for some heavies

    Here's a few cool heavier backing tracks I've had in queue but haven't gotten around to working on yet. BPM's to set your metronome to are in the file names.

    I didn't hear no clam! Sounds great man!

    Nicely done! Your vocal goes perfect with that! I couldn't sing to save my life so envy those of you that can. Hope to hear more!

    I forgot I was supposed to call out my gear used.
    The Sentimental Country Project was my '69 335, Rat, Barber Gain Changer and EP Boost set just above unity gain.
    Reverb by Reaper. I like the sounds one can get out of the stock stuff they have on there.
    Amp was my trusty Roland Cube 60 mic'ed with an old beat up SM58 cuz that's all I've got.:)

    I especially liked your Solo @JParry335 ,that was some really soulful playing!
    Unfortunately, I couldn't find the Time for my own contributions yet. This week has been a busy one and I'm looking forward to the weekend to get some stuff done :jam:

    Thanks bro. Maybe not a full on clam but some awkwardly played, out of time couple notes at 0:44 that I should have corrected and didn't. :D

    Thanks Eric! Riffraff does the really nice second solo to finish it off. I felt our tones and styles were different but blended really well so to the casual listener, one wouldn’t realize it was two different players.
    Stay with us and when you have time post up. Looking forward to hearing you and thanks for being here!

    I know what you mean! Every other line of mine is that:D. I’ve never played anything in my life perfect and I’m ok with that. You do it once and they expect it every time:cheers:

    Thanks, bro! Pitch is still my bitch! For me it's still like trying to land and split a toothpick on a razor each note. Lol. Working on it though. I'm kinda working on one that Riff put out above when time permits. It's a whole song and some dedication but should rock the casbah!

    Again, thanks for the compliment bro. :cheers:

    Here's the new one, Riff. I changed the name to fit the words. You can do whatever. :yesway:

    Prepare to rock! :eddie::eddie::eddie::eddie::eddie::eddie::eddie::eddie::eddie:

    Dude..... that's so cool. :dude:
    I love the whispered parts during the bridge starting at 1:35. The end section from 2:35 on is also very cool with the anthemic style "whoa" parts with more accents sprinkled in. That's killer.

    You should turn up your vocals a bit more so you aren't buried in the mix. You have a good voice, don't be shy with it. Make it more front and center so we can hear you delivering those lyrics with the swagger I know you brought to that.

    Great job brah, way to bring it! :applause:

    Thanks, Raff. It was fun doing it. It kinda kicks along with what one would say "Yea, that's got a good beat". I turned the vocal up as you said and yes, it seems to present more now, even though I hear a couple things I was keeping down. Lol. Here 'tis bro ....

    Thanks tc, you always have good things to say. Much appreciated, pal. I have to note how kick-ass the bass is - it's like a wall of f'n thunder!

    :cheers:
