Just A Ride: join in!

Not much action in here, so I thought I'd knock up a quick thing to kick start things. Was messing with a simple drumtrack. There's only a couple of guitars on it now, would be fun if some of you joined in. Needs a pumping bass, gutsy guitar solo on intro (first 4 bars), catchy vocals, the lot. Listen to it and see what you can do. I'm open to suggestions. I guess it should be about driving a car with no clear destination. Yeah!

Can I download the track from your SC link? I'll stick it in protools and see what happens.

@Leonard Scaper - Track is not that tight in second part, but I'll fix it. Can't wait for that bass boost!

OK @Leonard Scaper, I set up the drum kit tonight and improved the basic track: https://soundcloud.com/johan-van-den-berg/just-a-ride-02/s-Si2lB
Now be my bass-playing guest!

I'll be uncasing the old Gibson EB3 tonight to start the process.

Is this fun....or what?

Ow @ajwvdberg this sounds seriously good! Did you use an analog drum kit? Seems like you recorded it really well!
Omg our 'Just Cooking' duo is joining as well.. beware... Before you know this is transformed into an EDM track  ;) ;)
Good luck guys, looking forward to hear the results!

@Mar T. Please beware of people like me. They talk and talk, but can only hit a drum kit with a car.
It was neatly presented to me by some programmers in some Apple building somewhere.

More importantly: just heard what @Leonard Scaper is up to in this little joint. And it rocks. He sure knows how to tune into a song and make it better. Wait and see. Or rather, listen.
