    This is the first time I have started a thread in the VJR.:)

    I thought it would be a nice change, and possibly tempt more players to the VJR, if we tried a rhythm track.
    I sent Paparaptor a drum track to which he added the bass. The first 12 bars are quiet, so a gentle comp fits nicely, the second 12 are a bit more lively so push it a bit on those, and finish with a turnaround for the next player.

    I have taken the first 24 bars. 0-58secs.

    Maybe once we finish the rhythm we can then turn it around and apply the lead work? When finished it would be all our own work!!:D

    Enjoy!!

    ***RECORDING***

    I added a little rhythm part from 1:48 - 2:40. I think that this is a great idea, especially once we all get the rhythm track finished to go back and add some leads!

    Great work TZ.(y) Lovely elegant rhythm you laid down there. I am even more looking forward to getting this finished so we can attack it with the lead. There will be six variants of rhythm (provided others join in..., Papa? Giayank? Paleo? Anyone?):) which will require six variants of lead to compliment them.

    LoL!!! I wasn't accusing you of copying some one!!!:ROFLMAO: The plan was to do 24 bars each. The first 12 bars gentle, then push the next 12 finishing with a turnaround for the next player to start their 'gentle' 12 bars. You took another 12 bars.:)

    It's all good, I steal stuff from everyone . . . I remember reading something George Benson said, "If you don't want me to steal it don't play it in front of me!"
    BTW, it would be pretty cool if we could throw some more rhythm ideas back and forth.

    Great work Paleo. All we need is someone to finish it off, then we can turn it round for some lead.:)

    I think it was Abe Lincoln who said that you shouldn't believe everything you see on the internet . . .
