    Sure might be fun. [​IMG] But since I don't know anything about getting the music sync'ed, how would we do that? [​IMG]

    Wasn't sure myself. [​IMG] Just thought I'd ask, since it's really an interesting topic. But I'm sure if it is that serious, someone will know how we should do that.

    We sure need a lot of [​IMG], if we're about to do this, I mean.

    As someone mentioned in another post.. Audacity is free, and cross-platform.
    We can start with a click track, lay down a rhythm bed of drum&bass, let the guitarist & keyboardist have it, then vocals after that.
    Or really as long as there's a click on a separate track, anybody can start.

    I wouldn't mind giving it a go. I can start off with a drum skeleton.

    Since we all live so far away from each other, hadrian's arsedness prolly wouldn't be a problem.. [​IMG]

    I can play the Daxophone. And the Theremin (Google is your friend). And a weird kind of PS/2-QWERTY-keyboard-to-sound adapter thingy (a kind of synthesizer with a QWERTY keyboard as the, um, keyboard).

    Why? Because "regular" instruments take time to learn. [​IMG]

    Sounds promising mthr! And since audacity runs on every OS there's no excuse. [​IMG]

    But we need a plan/concept first, before we start (who plays which instrument, which song and so on). Otherwise everybody would be just freestyling around. And, actually, I'll have to admit that I can't read notes, only tabs. [​IMG]

    So, any ideas for our first song? Some indie/alternative/rock'n roll cover version just to see how things turn out?!

    I can play the Kazoo!!! [​IMG]

    Although I don't actually have a kazoo anymore... wait, why don't I have a kazoo? They're awesome! *makes note to buy a Kazoo next time she's near the Early Learning Centre*

    (I'm joking of course, I think you guys'll make an awesome band [​IMG])

    I'll make a basic drum track, very basic, that'll stretch to a 2.5 minute song, with verses, choruses and a bridge or so.
    I'm "kidfull" this week so time is spotty, if someone beats me to it that's fine. It's not like we can't do more than one song.
    If we start simple, we can more easily see if it'll work, then complex it up on the next tune, etc...

    There's always room for kazoo btw.. [​IMG]
