    Default VH Links Open Source CD Project

    Just an idea I thought I'd throw out there...

    How many people here would be interested in creating a collaborative CD project? I know there's a lot of musicians, great writers, and graphic artists that frequent this place so it's probably quite possible we could put our collective talents together to come up with some great Van Halen inspired rock tunes.

    People could upload little MP3 files of guitar riffs, baselines, vocal melody snippets, drumbeat ideas, lyrical ideas, chord progressions, etc. etc. and people could use them as jumping off points to build on and eventually I think we could create some killer original music.

    You never know we could actually write some good music since we would have so many people throwing in the best of what they could do.

    Anyone interested?

    Considering the tendency for VH fans to disagree about things, have you considered calling this thing the "VH Links Open Sores Project"?

    Sounds interesting. Perhaps aiming for one song would be a more realistic goal, like the guys are attempting in the Guitar Forum:

    Those guys were doing more of a continuous GUITAR SOLO jam thing... I was thinking more along the lines of songwriting with a VH flavour... could be fun...

    how about making a Van halen "covers album" from vhlinks?? might be easier...people could record bass tracks, guitar, vox, drums and send them to other members..

    Shit... I just sat on the VH Links Guitar Room Jam III track for more than a month because I didn't have a fucking free moment to record my guitar part. I owe two songs to a movie soundtrack and have two bands to produce in the month of August. I'm gonna say "fun idea," but I don't think I could ever make it happen over here.

    Yeah, but it wouldn't take you long to upload a 4 bar guitar part you may have kicking around and throw it into the collective pot... plus, there's no time limit on any of this what-so-ever... it could build over time and things would just organically develop.

    I think people may be shocked with the quality of tunes we could build.

    This is a great idea!! It will require someone who can really take charge and head up the project. I wish I had the (or any) talent to help out with this endeavor.
