    Default Project: VH (Links) I

    ATTENTION, VH LINKS MUSICIANS! I am putting together an album made by Linker musicians. It is going to be a re-creation or reinterpretation of Van Halen's first album strictly for fun. The album title? VH (Links) I.

    Here’s a project FAQ:
    Q - What are we making?
    A - VH (Links) I, a re-creation and creative interpretation of one of the greatest rock & roll albums of all time.

    Q - Tribute album or recreation albums usually suck 99% of the time. Why are we making this?
    A - Well...why not? I want to do something creative. I thought of this idea last night and figured I’d try to do it at the Links. There is a lot of talent here at the VH Links and I’d like to do something focused that shows what we’re capable of.

    Q - What are we going to do with this?
    A - I plan on posting it somewhere where we can download it. It will NOT be for sale.

    Q - Who is doing what song?
    A - I say, “First come, first served.” Wanna do a song? Reserve it by posting it in this thread

    Q - Why not do an album of originals?
    A - Too much emotional commitment for some people. Maybe later on down the road.

    Q - What’s the timeline for this project?
    A - Well, I’d like to have this completed and posted by the end of May 2014. That gives us plenty of time to do record, mix, and master our stuff. There will also be artwork for us to download.

    Q - I want to do a song in [insert whatever style you wanna do here]. Is that cool?
    A - Sure. Do whatever style you want. It’s your call and your name will be associated with it. Want to submit a techno version of "Jamie's Cryin'"? A straight-forward reading of "Atomic Punk"? An r & b-based, a capella version of "Feel Your Love Tonight"? Knock yourselves out. I am going to record a pretty straightforward version of "Runnin' With The Devil" with a little help from a friend or two. In fact, I've already started, so don’t even try it! ☺

    Q - What’s the track listing again?
    A - For those of you who don’t know the track listing of this album, shame on you!
    1. Runnin’ With The Devil
    2. Eruption
    3. You Really Got Me
    4. Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love
    5. I’m The One
    6. Jamie’s Cryin’
    7. Atomic Punk
    8. Feel Your Love Tonight
    9. Little Dreamer
    10. Ice Cream Man
    11. On Fire

    Q - What do you want me to do when I finish my song?
    A - SHEESH! We just started, man! Can't I have some time to think about this? Hmm...please let me know what you finished and when you finish it. We’ll figure it out from there.

    I am going to do Runnin' With The Devil.

    Harpospoke told me via FaceBook that he wants to do Little Dreamer.

    ---------------------

    I am willing to help with the following things:
    - Lead Vocals - I kinda sound like Dave at times, I have a good range, and can do the "whistle voice".
    - Backup Vocals - I can hit some high notes and harmonize like a mofo.
    - Bass Guitar - I can hold my own.
    - Bavarian Cheese Whistle - okay...maybe not.

    I work with MOTU Digital Performer 6. If you need me to sing or play something on your track, I'd like to have the WAV. We could exchange it via Dropbox or something similar.

    Me and my bro will be doing Ice Cream Man. Does anyone know of any good sounding backing tracks? Just the drums is what we need. If bass is included, that's fine.
    Just go for it!

    This should be a cool project! I'm on-board.

    If anyone else needs help with recording, or has questions about format/plugins/levels/equipment/etc just ask, I'm sure someone here will be happy to help you! (I know I'll try to answer any questions I can)

    I can also help with mixing/mastering and can maybe do some guitar playing for anyone that wants/needs it (I'm pretty busy with school and previous recording projects, so I'll do as much as people need me to, as time allows.)

    Awesome!

    Although I'd like to bring up a point to the OP -- are you allowing backing tracks to be used for this? It's no problem if you are, but it almost seems like there ought to be enough people on here that you guys could collab with a drummer/bass player on the links to do your new "backing track." That's a lot more fun, anyhow! lol

    We should definitely have some collaborations among Linkers.

    BREWCREW, if you can't find someone to play drums, please let me know. I know someone who can more than handle anything Alex plays, and I'm sure he will be willing.

    Concerning Eruption: it doesn't matter if none of us can play it perfectly, just as long as you play it.

    I'll do one but I don't have access to do anything but guitar unless you want it with a backing track you can find online. Then it's easy of course.

    Misc participation:
    -Graeme said he's going to do something acoustic.
    -Brett has offered up some guitar work.
    -Fuddman5150 has offered up some guitar work.
    -Metal Marc can help out with bass, lead vocals, and backup vocals; he also has a friend that drums and may be able to help out with some drum tracks for those who may need some drums.
    -Mrjstudios has offered mixing and mastering.
    -Two others mentioned on FaceBook that they are considering the project...sorry, but I don't know their screen names.
    -Sammy Hagar was stabbed in the back and left for dead (poor guy).

    Things to remember:
    1. Yes, this is about the first album.
    2. Feel free to collaborate with other people (Linkers or non-Linkers).
    3. This should be fun.

    Sorry I didn't put this in my last post, Brett. I was probably typing my big-ass message when you posted yours.
