Yup, don’t think jamming would work too well, I can just look at my Skype screen and -see- the latency, of course would be much worse on your end and double worse by the time it all gets back to me. There’s jam apps, dunno if I’d expect much improvement. On the other hand, one thing I learned when I started looking into all this stuff is sound travels 1 foot/ms. So my badass former guitarists with the 50 foot cords wanking away far stage left were dealing with 20-30 ms “latency”, worked out somehow. Anyway, cross that bridge etc. I’ll just chug on an E, you can go nuts with it. And yah, just talking shit and swapping licks is defo worth doing as far as I’m concerned.
So OK, sounds like you’re down, let’s pencil something in, sounds like you’re good w Sunday, I’ll say 8PM Pacific, if you want an adjustment should be doable. Let me know.
With me living in Hawaii, the latency thing will be a problem.
BarryMK from the Reaper forum and I are putting the finishing touches on a third song. He posted links to his BandCamp page with the first two songs on the Music Collaboration section on the Reaper forum. First one is Dust Bowl Days, the second is Your Smile.
We Skype every now and then when talking about things with the songs, so something like that might work. I’ve got a DropBox account we can use to upload stems and such.
Also have a real good drummer and keyboardist that I’ve worked with remotely in the past so maybe we can just get together, talk about guitars, music, etc. and from that, who knows, maybe we can come up with the next smash hit!!
I’m pretty low tech so all I have for Skype is my iPad. But that’s working OK for what Barry and I have done.
We’ve been saying Sunday. Could do after I get off from work tonight, be around oh I dunno, 11-12, so 8-9 for you. That would actually be fine for me, let me know. I guess it’s just us at this point AFAIK (Anyone? Garrick? Buehler?), so no one else would be affected.
Absolutely! My preference in fact, I mean people can say whatever they want but I’m not planning on getting into that shit.
