    Following a spiffing idea by @Mansonienne, followed by some impetus from @dogletnoir, plus touch of the recording-studio-dodahs from @Nick Evans and myself, we are pleased to invite you to add your part to the backing track above for a Come Together Jam and Mega Mix.

    When you're happy with your take, please upload it to SoundCloud as a downloadable file, or Dropbox as a link and post it here for inclusion in the final Mega Mix.

    IMPORTANT: Please mute the backing after the intro, so all we have to add to the mix your soloed take, and not the whole arrangement! Happy jamming!

    The project started here: https://www.strat-talk.com/threads/...ke-to-collab-completed-collabs-thread.537367/ but the backing track doesn't appear until the bottom of the second page, so I've started a new thread for the sake of clarity.

    Are you a volunteer?? I don't mind putting backing vocals on and harmonies, I'd frighten everyone away with my voice!! If you mean a guide track with a keyboard, to play along with can put one on for you it's no problem

    I could give it a try! I wanted to ask first in case someone else had committed to sing it, if im not taking anyone elses place Ill give it a try and send it to whoever is mixing it.

    Yes you can sing, its not a problem, its hard to say what is going to be in the final mix, i depends on how many people come together * bad pun intended!
    , but as Simon said*(another bad pun) put your final parts down as seperate tracks with no backing.

    Great idea! If I can find the time* I will give it a go.


    * Seems like my whole week is turning into one long Skype call ever since the company I work for sent 95% of their world-wide staff home to work from there. And I'm in the middle of partly rebuilding my attic, which means my 'music room' now doubles as storage area, office and home recording studio....

    Cool just laid 2 vocal tracks, should I shared them doubled or separared? Also, do we have to upload raws or can we add some compression and EQ?

    You can add compresssion , I will add effects if needed later on, if you can put them as seperate files that would be grand! thanks

    Cool! added compression and a touch of EQ (just a low cut and some air). I left some parts out of tune and some other misaligned between the 2 tracks so the mixing (if it gets to the mix) is more fun hahah, if not thanks anyway for letting me participate!
