This is a Guns for Hire redux thread... the original Guns for Hire thread is located here if you want to browse through for a UGer to collaborate with.

Essentially this thread is to do the same thing, but for you lot to post a song idea you have, and what you need from a collaborative recording partner. In this way people can check out what you're up to, and if they are into a similar style, then they can drop you a PM to help you out.

Here's an example of the kind of thing to post here:

Looking for a vocalist for original blues song:
- Need someone to lay down a vocal track, with pre-written lyrics
- Here's my music page for you to check out the kind of music I make: http://mymusic.musichost.com
- Send me a PM with some examples of your music and we'll sort out the music/add me to my MSN/Yahoo/AOL and we can talk more



Thanks to ghettohippygrrl for the reduxing idea.

Awesome, Lazy. I hope people find this useful. I think it could work well if people are open to it and keep checking back!

I have nothing to contribute to other people (because I suck), but I'm sure I'll be requesting help at a later date.

I'd kill to get some flute, violin and piano on some stuff. I'm just not sure what at the moment. If you play these instruments and can get decent recording done PM me and Ill let you know when I need a part.

It'll go on a CD Im recording and you'll get credit in the cd insert, meaning THREE WHOLE PEOPLE will hear you! Cause nobody likes me.

Shredmetal collab ?

Hmmmm okay I just had an idea:

How about someone to do a sorta versus guitar solo thingy with me?
We get a backing track and record a guitar battle over it, for example one person plays a few bars then lets the other person play a few and so on. I thought that would be pretty cool. It has to be a rock/blues soloing battle though as I cannot shred lol. PM me if you're interested!

is anyone on here good with making drum beats that sound like a realistic kit? I want just some basic rock/alternative beats to play along with but am having trouble finding some to download. I tried fruity loops but i just suck at making them

I have a synth. But is it cool if we start in december ? I'm quite busy with a few things now
#12
^ lol, december's awful, i'll have the christmas stuff to deal with as well as th efact my first exam modules are in january. Later, then, or just in bits and pieces for a long time? My amps busticated and my chops arent in order atm, so now wouldnt be great for me, i was planning to leave the actual shredding to you.
#13
I would to like to inquire if anyone is interested in helping me set this piece of writing to music.

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?p=4380731#post4380731

I would be very appreciative of anyone who is willing to contribute some what technical yet subtle instrumentation to the piece.

I'm only asking for help because I'm a typical acoustic singer/ songwriter and I doubt anyone could keep this together under that pretence.

Pm me if you have any ideas.

That would seriously rock. My teacher ( wim den herder, weet niet of je hem kent, ex-sena winaar. ) studies at Amsterdam as well, but only the jazz section, so he can't really tell what I have to know so he just learns me all the jazz theory as well, which is good, but a lot. So you don't study on a conservatorium ?

Hi all,

Let me spare you the mumbo-jumbo, heres what I got:

http://unex.dmusic.com/

Obviously this needs vocals (and maybe other things). This is a relaxed project, and is flexible in its outcome. If you have something you feel you can add to this, or maybe even a critique, please dont hesitate to reply.

Reply's work, PM's are better.

Thanks,

Bog

If anyone would like to sing alternative rock vocals for me I would appreciate it. Listen, and if you would like to do the vocals, I'll provide a version without the lead guitar for you to record vocals over. The lyrics would be your choice, I'm not a great lyricist. These are the songs I had in mind:

Track 68
Chicken Fries
Who Cares

(All can be herd here)

AND YOU BETTER SOUND LIKE RIVERS COUMO DAMMIT!

Nah, Im just kidding If your interested PM me or IM me on AIM. My SN is Shibby0347. Thanks.

Needed: Blues-Funk-jam bass and drums

This may be entirely not possible, but I'd like to do a collaboration with a bassist who can potentially play a decent slap bassline and a drummer who's ok with playing a groove. The problem is that i need to be able to lay down the guitar first due to the way I record. I have no problem using a metronome and providing the bassline idea I have, but i'm lookin to kinda make this a jam track with a little creativity on the bass. I'll be playing electric rhythm/lead/possibly lap steel lead. maybe adding bongos too, this track will be a magnum opus.

for overall style, think Robert Randolph and the Family Band.

so, any RRFB or funk fans willing to give it a shot?

I've written a bunch of little parts for songs in the style of led zep and pink floyd but it would be nice to work with someone who could play drums and bass. pm me if you're interested.

It be cool to do any type of collabaration actually, in any style. i really enjoy playing and writing music.

here's some of my music (but it's mailnly covers) http://timefor.dmusic.com

I recorded a cover of Weezer's Say It Ain't So and I'd like it if someone could please record their vocals over it. Any vocal style would be fine, but it would be extra awesome if it could be the Deftones' Chino Moreno style (haunting vocals for the verses, ear-piercing screams for the chorus). It would also be sweet if I could get female vocals on it (in which case you wouldn't need to do it Chino-style). As you can tell by the version that has my vocals, I'm not much of a singer and desperately need someone's aid

Hey all,

Anyone out there interested in making an Opeth/Dream theater style song??? You must:

- Have decent quality recording gear

- Play at least one of the instruments above ALTHOUGH IF YOU CAN PLAY TWO OR EVEN ALL YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME.

- Be good at heavy riffage! As cleans and soft breakdowns are my strongpoint I will do 'most' of them, and perhaps some solos.

So please PM me if interested, a bit of experience would be good and you have to be OPEN MINDED about what direction the song can take!!



EDIT: Guitarist spot is taken! Other places still open.

Killer idea for this thread only real problem is that it might be a little too cluttered with the amount of people who will want to join in.
