Yeah, that's the Spector - I'm very happy with it :D I recorded it through a Behringer DI box into the computer.

I'll put in another vote for a new drumtrack Randomplay. I'm not sure about my result, but really enjoyed the challenge!

I have a mate who produces drum and bass music for a living . He probably has heaps of various drums loops/samples , should I ask him if he has anything we could work with?

I have some pre-recorded drum loops that came with my recording software, and we have that drum machine program that Beagle posted in another thread which can save files, but it would be cool to get a real drummer to set the challenge for us. If he's willing, then that would be awesome.

One point i thought of, which is originally why i stuck to simple for a drum track, is that if yer getting a flashy drum track, it is going to influence what you play to it... with a beat every 1/4 it leaves it wide open.... or even just brushes and a kick, really it is just for a metronome, and the track would have to be around what kinda format we are going to use. So we do really need to know whether we are going to stick with a 12 bar pattern, or go with something new.

I wouldn't mind changing it up a bit . Seeing how people how people get influenced by a beat could be interesting too.

Here is one to try. 12 measures of a fixed beat from the "FunkRock" sound kit out of my recording soundtrack, with minor embellishments front and back (that's a warning Randomplay, you might like to turn your monitors down a little the first time you play through :lol: ). If it isn't any good, I can find something else. See what you think

Ha ha, I said "how people " twice. What a moron :oops: .
I dig the beat too. I might just lay down a groove man.
I'm not much of a 12 bar blues man. And I can't solo to save my self, actually I'm saving you guys some pain by not soloing :D
I might try something now...

Couldn't end the weekend without having a crack. Not overplayed as much as my previous effort, but tried a little chorus to see what that was like :roll:
