i think my interest in doing tributes of other peoples music is on the wane but if it was original tunes played on homemade stuff, akin to ron's idea, i might be up for it.
Sounds like a fun idea Ron! I love doing mash-ups...been working on a Slayer "Seasons in in the Abyss" mixed with Terry Jacks "Seasons in the Sun" for the uke. Merle...I feel the same, I was really looking for something already under way that I could just contribute to. Although, if I had the time I would compile one myself. I may consider doing one later and making it a free download if there is enough interest. Something along the lines of the old K-Tel comps could be fun...20 Explosive Smash Hits on the CBG...or something like that.
I like the mirror/originals thang. It would open it up for all styles and tastes too.
K-Tel style all the way Mike! We would need to produce a crappy commercial too with all of the song titles scrolling by.
I"m surprised a BB King tribute album hasn't been suggested yet.
I think that is a really good idea.
Thanks Ben, I may pursue this endeavor soon.
What about one for the 3 Kings. Albert, Freddie and BB. Gives you more songs and you smash all three style together speed it up 40 to 80 bpm you have SRV.
Do original songs but only give a few weeks to post it.
Do a 50' 60's or 70's that open up to a lot more people. Not all builders and player are blues players. You might get 80 songs!
We have pushed that you use homemade instrument only, what about a open recording a play what you bring. some talented folk's lurking.
A dreaded Love Songs and Ballad. haha (I get Wonderful Tonight)
I could go on but I think that 2 months or more is too long. No one works for free so I guess to be a music machine you need to pay someone or have a list of volunteers.
thanks to all who have volunteered.
