I'm not blaming you, or anyone in particular for the lack of organization. I don't really care, all I care about is getting things going.

Maybe a good way to start off is to at least get a list down of who is going to be in, what instruments they can play and other talents. Send everybody here that was interested a PM asking for what they can contribute so things can get organized.

You said you were making some guitar riffs right? Post some samples of those, it doesn't matter what length they are, but it will give me an idea of what I might be able to do with them on the drums. After hearing them we could discuss the details. If you have a few different ideas we could work out a verse, chorus, verse, chorus thing, or at least some song structure, variation, progression or something different then a guitar riff and drum track for a few minutes. It doesn't have to be complex or anything, or it could be just guitar, bass, drums with people taking turns soloing over it. I'm open to all ideas. I think we should also focus the discussion on this forum instead of myspace or facebook, or at least have an idea on which one we are all going to use. People have already created multiple groups for this thing on facebook or myspace, there should only be one.

Also, all of the material I've contributed so far, just so they are all in one place. I just realized that rapidshare has a download limit for free users. Any better ways I can upload this stuff?

Drum Beat 1
Drum beat 2
Drum Beat 3

Bass Line 1

Box.net just has a maximum of 1gb in your account at a time, but has a 15mb maximum upload.
Sendspace.com is good

Do they have a download limit? The main problem with rapidshare is it seems to only allow one download per day, which isn't really going to work. I'll check out those sites though.

Sorry, I honestly opened this up to get basics debated and begun, and I did not really envision this being done so quickly but it's cool that the interest is there.

Perhaps Veridical Fiction speaks the truth, and perhaps we should organize it a bit better, but the intent was for a simple all-inclusive collaberative effort, and I think posting the files for download here on MB is the best way to present work that anyone can add to and then re-post, with a bit of description as to what has been added to which track. I think this is already flowing in the right direction.

That is, if one drum track (and I was only able to download the 1st one, and as you said, Kamikazi Kat, I'm limited to downloading only that one today) inspires someone's bass or rhythm then just do it and repost it, and let it build naturally. IF two or three or four people dig the same file and want to organize something more structured then go for it!

Me too. I figure you are right on with uploading the drum files, and feel free to go ahead and string together a verse chorus verse bridge chorus or whatever structure and we can build on it. I'm already excited, so let's not get bogged down with too many rules right away. We're not going to die tomorrow...I hope. Plus we want to invite involvement from any user.

I am blocked from many of these sharing sites while at work...but this part of this collaboration is the backbone, so let's hope we can find a good one.

Drum Beat 1

Give me some suggestions of what you like to hear, anything that might give me a better idea of what you are looking for. Also, post any download links to parts of the songs here, so anybody can participate. I don't have a myspace account or anything and I'm sure there are other people that don't too so I think its best to get things done here. Even if you don't intend to use my drumming, I'd still like to partcipate, its good experience and practice.
This is the only one I was able to listen to and then it told me about the 1 download per day limit...but I do like it. I think it would make an excellent intro and verse. I like the BPM as it will bring a strong drive to the song. Thanks bro,

Thanks. I'm looking at the 2 upload sites that Stone mentioned. Box.net might work since most of the beats I upload are below 15 MB. Sendspace looked good as well. At the least I could always just send out emails with the files attatched if anybody wants them.

Emailing was my origional notion but the posting of uploaded files would be so much more in-line with the communal nature of the process.

Thats a good idea. If you want, go ahead and set one up.

Emailing is just another option for those that are having problems with the upload site, I'm still going to upload my stuff so everybody can download and contribute. I'm in the process of getting all of my material on sendspace.

Drum Beat 1
Drum Beat 2
Drum Beat 3

I will post the rest here when its done uploading them. And I just realized that the files will only be available for a limited time... I love the way it waits to tell me that after I already set up an account and started uploading files. It doesn't specify how long the files will stay. But it will work for now as an alternative to rapidshare. Try it out and tell me how it works.
