I've always had fun with these in the past.

The idea is simple; you download the GP, listen to it, and pick up where the last person left off, adding in your own part.

Some basic rules to keep this going:


  • If you want to write the next part, just post saying so; this way, multiple people won't pick off from the same part, leaving one entry to be ignored. If the person before you isn't done yet, still, feel free to post and claim your spot. Then, one they're done, whoever had claimed the spot after them can go. If someone already called next, just call the spot after them; pretty simple, really. Once you've got your part done, edit your post calling your spot, and upload it.
  • Label the beginning of your section with your username.
  • Feel free to add whatever you want to. Did the person before you end in the middle of something similar to a Blink-182 interlude, but you feel like writing a metalcore breakdown? Well, go for your metalcore breakdown! I mean, it'd be nice if you included a similar melody, theme, or other element from the previous section, but it's not necessary; hell, if we each just follow the course of the person before us, this will get old pretty quickly!
  • Feel free to add tracks; let's say you need a third guitar for the next part, or you think a 5-string bass in Drop A would just make your section awesome. Well, go for it! Just don't add them unnecessarily. For example, if you want a bridge with a string orchestra, and will only need one guitar, it's pretty simple to change one of the guitar tracks setting to strings.
  • If you make any changes to tempo, or the settings of a track, be sure they're done using F10, so it only changes your part, and not those before you.
  • For the most part, don't edit the sections of those before you. Seeing as some parts could be improved with a proper transition, I will allow this; you can change the instruments in any tracks that the person before you used for the last measure of their section, and any tracks they didn't use for the last four measures. This should allow you to make proper transitions, without messing up their section.
  • Eventually, the file will get to large to post. Don't delete other peoples parts to make it smaller; just put it in a .ZIP file.


I think that should pretty much cover everything.

That being said, I've started you off with something pretty much open to your interpretation; this is simple enough that you can take it wherever you want to go.

Dibs on after AngrySockMonkey. I have high hopes for this. Hopefully it'll turn out better than most collabs.

Eh kept it kinda short, just kind of bringing to a more faster pace. Feel fry to change anything.

Just expanded and changed to distorted. Imagining something a bit more intense, heavy or interesting after this aha.
It occured to me to add this to the OP at about the same time as you posted this.

When you've got your part done, just edit your post that claimed your spot, instead of making a new post; it helps to prevent people from being skipped.

I'm so gonna participate on this. Gimme some time and I'll upload it.

EDIT: Almost done.

EDIT: Done!

Complete change of genre but i thought it flowed well and it can easily be changed back to something else.

EDIT: I change mine to fit Ometh's once he's uploaded his part

All of our's to yours was the biggest lol moment I ever had. I mean, its good, but it was like maybe hard rock transforming into the guitars tremolo-ing the shit out of them selves and blastbeat galore. I'm guessing that was the reaction you were going for, judging by the "what in the name of ****" thing...

You can do as much as you want, but if you've already gone, try to make sure no one else is waiting for a spot before calling it; just so everyone gets a chance.

EDIT: People should start doing their stuff in another GP file even if the person before hasnt finished, just to gain time. After, you can copy paste it

Oh 'ometh' please can i do the next one! The bit i've got is so good!

Of course you can be the next, I'm not going to do this part, I'm not that selfish lol.
And awesome that I can do another part, I'll do it when I'm bored or something lol.
Also, I had a great idea:when we finish this up, why won't we do something like a collab video for youtube: each user plays the parte that he wrote; that would be kickass. But I'm not shure if I can play the part that I wrote, at least the sweep thingys; I can't sweep for my life
Lol can't wait to see new parts, this is turning great

Lol, lucky I guess . I noticed something that bothered me because I pay too much attention to details. Someone changed my 5 string, tuned in A#, bass, from fingerstyle to pick It's meant to be fingered, motha****az! Lol if you want to change an instrument change it only for you part, clicking on F10 and selecting the instrument that you want. That way my bass stays fingerstyle.

EDIT: I'm gonna change the bass again, and I'm going to start to work on my part. It's going to take a while, I'm slow as hell lol

2nd EDIT: frankibo, your part is lovely lol

3rd EDIT: Jesus ****ing christ, almost done. This part is epic and long as hell. Also, can I use this part in one of my songs or do you guys think that is lame lol

4rth EDIT: My part is ****ing huge, it's from 273 to 348, lol. Here it goes

5th EDIT: Changed up a little detail. Exported the song as MIDI to see how long it is, now it's almost 10 minutes long lol

Musically I like what you've added Ometh, but 32nd notes at that tempo is just grating. I thought it in the first bit you added as well. It's just hard to listen to with the double bass and blast bits and tremolo picking at that speed. I think those bits need a tempo change cause like I said I really like the music, the riff starting at 278 is awesome, it's just sooooo fast its painful to listen to.

EDIT: Added a little synth bass bit for fun, I'm interested to see how it'll be followed

Yeah I understant that, in real life I play it a lot slower It's just that that speed is the closest thing to you know, the speed that I wanted it to be, do you understand?

EDIT: Since I'm bored and noone clamed the next part I'm going to do it Lol I'm so board

EDIT EDIT: forgot to put the edit thingy. phailephant.

EDIT: After paying with it for a while, I concluded that I cannot come up with anything decent for the moment, so if one of you guys wanna make the next part, go for it
