Gametabs FF7 Tribute Album - The Deadline is Over

Hello, as my last attempt to make collabs was a desatre (xD) i had a new idea listening to iamHoustonian's last cover...

Why wouldn't we make a little mp3 (or flac or wav, whatever) cover album (a bit like OCR but, much smaller) something with 5-6 tracks from an OST (was thinking at ff7 to start because there many different kind of song, in any style and everyone can make a song that they like)

This is not a contest, we will use your track if it's good.
We can do collas or individual work, or individual stuff but if you're like me and sucks at making a good drums backing you can ask help etc...

We can make a profil for each participant with things like : the instruments you play, your style of playing, your specialities or weackness etc more the songs you'd like to do etc etc

And after we can put the Album on mediafire (exemple) and make a little video trailler on our youtube channel to tell people and download the album...

I thin this could be really funny !

Well this is just a suggestion... If you have any opinions about it or if you wanna try to make it real, plz leave a comment !

Ps : i still think gametabs should have an official youtube channel to put videos of the riff and fingerstyle challenge, the winner of the tune contest, the "cover of the week" and the songs of this mini-album

Ps 2 : i know most of you are buzzy with your eprsonal projets but we have the time, i'm not hurry :)

Cheer guys !

and there's probably more to add to that...

That said I'm totally up with that idea, and would gladly help.

OKAY ! Well let's give a try

OKAY !

Well let's give a try !
Here os the FF7 OST : http://www.ffdream.com/downld-ostff7.html<

Maybe we can post a "profil" like this :

Instruments: Electric guitar, bass

Style of playing: Blues, progressive rock, metal, power ballad...

Speciality : Soloing, making smooth tone, lead guitar, able to make some arrangement for electric guitars

Weackness: Fingerstyle, prog drums, can't use any software like guitar rig etc (GP6 only)

10 songs that i'd like to do : Underneath the Rotting Pizza, Costa del Sol, Sandy Badlands, Cid's Theme, You Can Hear the Cry of the Planet, Cosmo Canyon, Cait Sith's Theme, J-E-N-O-V-A, Tifa's Theme, Life Stream


Well if you have suggestions to add some part of the profil tell me :)
Like this we will see with who we can do collabs or not, if we need a good sounding backing track who can help us etc...

Any style of music, any style of playing and any style of instruments are allowed !

I think this could actually be sweet!
Especially considering some talented new users joining like jez and tigerchild.

I can play a few FF7 songs quite well. Like "Mako Reactor" ,"Underneath the Rotting Pizza" and "Mark of a Traitor". I just need a good drum/midi program like Reason or Cubase to get some of those industrial sounds.

I'm staying pretty busy with work, so I might not be able to respond super fast but I'm down. :-)

Mostly guitar. I'm okay at bass and I can play a little drums.
Throw me in front of a keyboard for a bit and I can get something sweet going hehe :).

I've got a solid natural rhythm and I'm pretty good at taking an original song and changing it up.

I guess you could say I have always had an affinity towards making music, just never had much access to the means of doing so.

I like to think I'm slowly getting better d(^-^)b

EDIT: I've gotten a lot more experience in the last few years though from jamming and working with some talented friends.
Some of them say they like my unconventional self-taught style haha unique I guess

Nice :) Originality is always

Nice :) Originality is always welcome !

So we are 3 for now : you, rex and me...
I'd like to have at least 5 people here...

And them we will each chose one song to make ourselves (or with some helps) and chose together 2 or 3 songs to make as real collabs...

And them talkabout them, which ones are great or no etc until we have 7 good songs (because FF7 :D)

But if more people join we can imagine make more songs, but it's better to start slowly and see how it goes

So we're on for a FF7 tribute album right. I'm not really knowledgeable in FF music, only track I could think of right now is Birth of god.

Anyway, I can play guitar, bass, keys and drums. I play mostly groovy/jazzy stuff, with slow tempo. I'm bad at playing fast. Also might be really busy with real life shit pretty soon, so don't expect things quickly

I don't have much time for guitar right now and i have to finish my 2nd FF6 recording before doing this so maybe you can focus on an other song ?

Or if you really want to make this one i'll make a collab with "you cna hear the cry of the planet" ^^

I'll surely make several recordings of each tracks with different tones... And maybe let some part with programmed sounds (maybe some strings or chorused piano...) But i'll have to ask someone (and for the drums too) because GP6 RSE aren't that good...

So as you'r a bass specialist, does the bass sounds good to you?

Some of the chords didn't sound quite right to me, so I made a few edits to your arrangement. I only did the first 30 measures. See what you think.

Surprised no one mentioned a temple of the ancients version yet, it's a very underrated song Imo.
