I said there wouldn't be any set rules, but Marv changed my mind. So here are the Rules that Marv recommended that also had a lot of support from other members! 1. Download 2. Record 3. Upload. Have fun! Now for the Guidelines! These are things that make it easier for some of us to participate. 1) Post the track (If you are initiating the Jam) with your contribution. 2) It would be nice if you would post the Key. 3) Posting the raw track is optional. If it isn't there, and you want it, PM the poster. Note: Be careful of Copyrights. Don't post any raw Jam-tracks that Griff sells (Griff doesn't mind if we use his tracks but we don't want to put them out there for free. 4) Updated by Paparaptor: The method of marking one's territory has changed. The most commonly used method is timestamping your contribution. E.g. I'm in at 1:55 and out at 2:45. This lets listeners find your solo quickly and it lets the next player know where you ended your solo. It provides a nice frame of reference when listening to a complete track and knowing exactly who is playing at any given point in the track. 5) Posting Equipment used is optional. If it's not there and you want to know, just PM the poster. 6) Recording Light on! is a good idea if you want to make sure you get your spot. Simply Line through it or remove it once you post. 7) Don't be a Hog, One bite at the apple please. 12 or 24 bars is the norm on slow to medium speed tracks. 36 is fine for faster tunes, 8 or 16 for 8 bar songs. It's not a hard and fast rule and no one will get upset if you really get into it and run long every now and then. (If the the track is not finished within a reasonable amount of time (Week or so), then it would be okay for someone to finish it off. I borrowed a post for an example; RECORDING 8 Lane Highway in A In from the beginning through 1:20. American Strat, Bridge, Delay, Reverb, Phaser, Post Gain. Just trying out different sounds. Remember, these are only Guidelines! Sometimes, it's a good exercise to try and figure out the Key, and how many spots are left for yourself!
