    Sounds fun! So just play the whole track and get you an mp3 or wav that you’ll chop n drop from? Is that how it works?

    Now I see we have 'critical mass', I'll aim to start a new thread with the actual backing track in the next day or so. Fear not, I will include full instructions and a link here, so you won't miss out! :D

    Yep! Be great to have you on-board.

    OK, if you want more detail, the 'delivery method' is you post your take anywhere downloadable (DropBox, SoundCloud etc) and send me the link via the forum Conversation mechanism. As I say, I'll spell it out on the Collaboration thread with the downloadable backing track.

    All are welcome. :)

    There will always be space. If the number of submissions increases, so will the length of the backing track. When we've created a complete track together, I'll post a short video showing how the compilation process works, so anyone else can copy the method if they want to.

    The full details will come with the thread that contains the downloadable sound file, but here's the basic outline. This what you do:

    1. Download the backing track I provide the link to
    2. Load it into your DAW*
    3. Play for up to 24 bars, recording your take from start-to-finish
    4. Upload the sound file you recorded, without the backing track audible, to any file hosting platform that allows downloads (eg SoundCloud, DropBox etc)
    5. Start a Conversation on here with me, giving me the link to your download.

    * If you don't have a computer-based DAW, you are still welcome to take part. Just tell me what recorder you have (even if it's a phone) and I'll be happy to tell you the best way to submit your take.

    Thanks for taking this on Simon! I've missed out on so many of these kinds of things over the years here, so I'd love to play along and join the fun.
