Hey @MrBouzouki thanks! I'm expecting bass from @Leonard Scaper soon, got some ideas on melody. As soon as that is done I'll upload a new version. Tell me what you could contribute!

I'll definitely have that bass track ready at the end of the day today so we can stay on a roll here. This is turning into a very exciting multiple collaboration.

I think we've got a real rocker on our hands!!

This sounds awesome! ::headphone:: I've been listening to it in my car on my way home just now, improvising along, singing very loudly... But the lyrics that came to me were not about driving, they were about ice-cream... ;D

Well you can never have too much cowbell ... lol - whatever you think is needed on the strings front.
Let me listen to what @Leonard Scaper et al have come up with and I'll try and fit in. Having a melody idea often triggers me to be honest.

Kitcheneers! I. Am. So. Excited! @Leonard Scaper is making magic on his bass. I've just found some direction in melody and words. As it is all in progress and there are so many talents in this kitchen I thought I'd share a snippet. Please let me know what your thoughts are.

This is the sound bite (sorry Leonard, used your bass line, I know you're still perfecting it, it's only to get things going):

Lyrics so far:

Soon as you sit down and close the front door
That dick from finance wonít exist anymore
Kick of your shoes and throw back your head
Try not to remember what you wanna forget

Just a ride, gotta cover some ground
Cut just like knife through the heart of this town
Ooh flip a coin at the junction and baby disappear in the night

OK, here's the news:

I've made a new version: https://soundcloud.com/johan-van-den-berg/just-a-ride-2/s-Xzlps

There's vocals from start to finish. Not definitive, but I want to proceed. And then there's this wishlist, would be so cool if some of you joined the project:

  • First nine seconds (intro) needs a mean guitar. Who's that solo player that can deliver?
  • 1:36: instrumental break. Yet another vacancy tor that guitar player. Karma!
  • In general: a lead guitar would be coul throughout. Fill in some gaps in the verses, etc. Just join in and deliver the goods.
  • Lyrics! I've just cooked up something straightforward. Song structure is easy. If you can do a better job, please be my guest!
  • Add something extra. Do you feel that this track needs something? Shoot, or even better, record it and send me the track. I'm happy to add. For instance, I can't play keyboards, so I'm pretty limited in sounds.
  • Prouction: I have no clue what to do. I just add lots of effects, turn compression buttons and then hope for the best. Willing to learn do. If you feel something needs to be done, let me know

And finally: how about that bass! It's @Leonard Scaper people. Just saying.

Please let me know what you think. The track is available for download, join in!

Did I hear something 'bout guitars?  ;D

Not sure what you are looking for, did a one take improvisation over part of the track, sounds crap but you get the idea about the vibe I got from the track.
If there are something in there (or the overall vibe) that you think could work, let me know and I can probably come up with something.

Hey @Jambrains that sounds pretty good to me. Although I do feel the long strokes take away some of the pace of the song. I think the faster notes that you throw in are more suitable. Either way, would you mind sending me the dry track of this? I would love to add bits to my mix!
And great that you just jumped in!

Since my style tends to be melodic on electric, I've only managed to come up with a little 2-part harmony topping off idea for the chorus so far.
Attempting to follow the shape of the lyrics and add a bit of colour.

Not sure if this is what you want ?  ::)

EDIT - I've just heard @Jambrains guitar part and I'm quite excited now because I think the two different styles might work together quite well.

I will investigate some more floaty ideas when I have an idea what @Jambrains guitar part might be. I might well be able to fit into the gaps.
