Okay so I was sitting here playing the uke and I have only been playing a week but have played the guitar for several years. So here is the deal, I started goofing around tonight and have a chord progression that I kinda like but I need some help with it and I thought it would be cool if we could all colaborate on writing the song and if we could get it fully written and have full instrumentation on it that would be really cool.

I found a website along time ago that people were doing this type of thing but I can't find it and I thought it might would be fun to try here. There seem to be a ton of great musicians here.

So what do you think. I need to get a mic so I can record the progression and see what people can come up with.

We could do it that way or create MP3's. Someone would have to edit it and mix it down. We can figure that out.

Sweet.. Okay guys... Here is what I am thinking. I've got most of the chord progression that I like. Let me sit down and write it down and get a mic so I can record it and let you hear it. Then we can figure out how to finish it out. I would love to get full instrumentation. Ukulele, Bass, strings of all kinds what ever we can come up with. I am open to ALL input. Anything goes. I want this to be a joint effort and to be a community song. I am all for you taking my idea and making it better. Like I said. I have only been on the uke for a week.

Honestly I have to figure out some of the chords as I just started goofing around and found things I like so I don't know all the chord names.

I hope to have something in the next couple of days. I will sit down now and figure out the chord progression.

Okay here is an outline of the chord progression.. Actually now I am not totally sure I am happy with it any thoughts suggestions.

Em, Dmaj, C add9, F add9, Amin, G and repeat..

Stupid question but how can I post an mp3 so you can here the strum pattern?

That was it Kompoz.com. I will create an account and try and record the initial idea. Well, actually let me ask this. Which do you prefer Kompoz or ejamming? I have not used either one of them before. I tried to record just using my built in Laptop mic but that sucked. I will have to find a fairly good mic. Any suggestions.

Okay so here is a VERY rough cut of what I am thinking......

I don't have the strum perfect and I was just goofing around with an idea at the beginning and the end..

No problem. I just figured it died. The MP3 is really rough.. I need to get a good mic to record, I also need to decide on the beginning and end. If you have any thoughts let me know.

Sweet... Sorry... I know how stuff gets lost in the forums sometimes. I hope to pick up a better mic this weekend or maybe order one. I will hopefully be able to get it recorded better.

If you're willing to wait 4 weeks (until school holidays) I could fulfill your cello and keyboard needs.

I am in no hurry at all.. Like I mentioned before I need to get a good recording for everyone. This was just an idea that I thought off and figured it would be fun. We can work out the other pieces. Does anyone have any experience with mixing the tracks down. I am using audacity currently cause I suck and don't have a mac or garage band. Hopefully will fix that later this year.

I'd like to play around with some lyrics but alas the mediamax file has been moved so at the moment, it can't be listened to.

I like the idea of including UU injokes like UAS, banana ketchup spaghetti, elephant town and so on - while keeping the lyrics understandable. Hopefully I'll be able to have a listen soon.
