How about a Garage Band sound bank?

A CBbassist lays down a bass track on Garage Band, and uploads the file here for sharing/embellishing.

Players of other instruments pick it up and add to it, and repost.

Anyone picks it up again, adds more ("it needs more cowbell!!" and puts it back up.

Kind of like sour dough bread, keep passing on the "culture".

I like the sound of that too!! I am not that accomplished yet but would give it a try!
Hey... And maybe one day they all meet up and play it live!
I love Garage Band because it has a delete function. So I can take more than one (okay, waaay more than one) swing at it.

I often play in open jams, and really only get cooking when the song gets put to bed.
The CB Bass group has been talking about a similar idea, only using the open-source Audacity package, which runs on Windows, Macs, and Linux (I'm a linux guy, and use Audacity as my main audio recording / editing tool).

The Kompoz site might be another alternative: there, rather than uploading the "project" file representing the whole song, you can upload individual tracks, which anyone can mix down in different ways. They have a pretty cool setup for synchronizing tracks, too.
I'll be up for it. Guitar Center had a variety of blues stuff on their site for someone to play on for the King of the Blues contest. I didnt enter but had a great time playing along with a "band".

I`m well game for that idea , I have a small home studio setup and mainly use Acoustica Mixcraft 6 (brilliant , easy and inexpensive) but have used Audacity before . Count me in , I play 3 string fretted , 3 string slide and 2 string slide (just switched from regular guitar so just getting up to speed)
