Yay! Glad you like it, hashel! I've just finished sitting down and going through it again while mixing. I think this sounds better, but it could be much better in certain spots. Take a listen, all, I want this piece to be perfect for the album lol

Slapping and tapping anyone?

Hey, guys! So...Do any of you happen to have a 5 string bass and be familiar with slap technique?

We're doing a funky/jazzy/prog rock-esque collab cover of A Sacrifice. Originally, Lord Bif was gonna record the bass track, but neither him nor Hashel own a 5 string.

Here's a preview of what it's gonna sound like: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/130078058/Snippets/A%20Sacrifice.mp3

And here's the sheet/tab:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/130078058/Snippets/A%20Sacrifice%20%...

P.S: Also, have I mentioned you get to write a solo for it?

P.P.S: And here's the audio with just the bass track: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/130078058/Snippets/A%20Sacrifice%20%...

P.P.P.S: And here's the midi: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/130078058/Snippets/A%20Sacrifice.mid
I figured it could be useful.

Hey Hashel, Garageband can only export my track as an .AIFF file, not a .WAV :( Is that gonna be ok? It's around as big as a WAV file would be. I've uploaded it MediaFire; check it out and let me know if it'll work for you. It can't be listened to ahead of time, for some reason.

If it's cool with the Polka part it doesn't fit the orchestral or 8bit parts.
The different styles ideas is a funny too but do you think you can improve it?

As long as the deadline is going to be a bit flexible, I'll take "Drifting." I think I'm going to be pretty liberal with the changes to it, since it's just 8 chords repeated for 3 minutes, hope that's okay.

Well, I've finished the salt flats. It was a really hard song for me... I wanted to do something other than just a 1:1 cover, but it was proving difficult to work with it.. although I did end up happy with the result. It's a calm and simple track, which I tried to add a little texture to.

EDIT: Updated the links, changed the lead tone a bit as per hashel's suggestion.

If not, I'll do that too. I'm also interested in "Retaliation" and "The Oath", but I will finish the other track before I commit to anything or promise anything.

The only thing i would change is add more reverb and delay to the main lead to make it even more atmospheric =)
But it's just a question of taste ^^ Great work =)

I actually have an ideal version of the song in my head that has piano and bass. There was someone else who wanted to do a collab who just coincidentally happens to play both of these instruments, but I have no idea if he'll be willing to do this on a short notice. (Also, haha, do I actually know how to write the music for these instruments? Not really, but I'll figure it out).

I've been delayed by massive hearing problems but my ears are back to normal now and the piece (Lunatic Pandora) is progressing as planned.

So I've read some of the comments here and I'm curious to know exactly how faithful we have to be to the original song?

Not because I'm planning to go completely off the rails with the arrangement, but I'd like to know what's ok.

My version is some sort of orchestral sci-fi movie soundtrack thing. It is faithful to the original melody, but there are entirely original parts and some parts have been moved around quite a bit.

Here's a demo:
http://www.update.uu.se/~kgs/KGS%20-%20Lunatic%20Pandora%20v4.ogg

Note that some parts have been cut out. I'm still glueing some parts together.Just to avoid weird jumps and gaps of silence I cut it off.

what i liked with seas of time is that game has a lot to do with water (as the BGU being a kind of flying boat) but chains sounds good too!
