A few days ago I posted a very quick riff I’d called From Go to Woah! that I’d created using IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube on the iPad. Not long after posting that riff to SoundCloud Dave from the Lick of the Day website asked if he could record a solo over it. I said “Sure” and sent Dave my exported WAV and MP3 files from AmpliTube.
Before I could say “Yngwie Malmsteen is a ferociously fast guitar player who has a fascination with Ferraris and Rolexs” Dave had created his solo, laid it over my backing track and released it as his latest Lick of the Day with video and tab for all to enjoy. Dave’s solo track is entitled Don’t poke the Scarebear. Obviously, I love it.
I am really impressed with how easily I was able to record the initial drum track and rhythm guitar parts using AmpliTube. It was then simple to export the track to WAV/MP3 so I could upload it to DropBox and share it for the collaboration to occur. From Dave’s end, he imported the track into his BOSS eBand JS-10 and recorded his solo over the top. The rest as they say is history.
As Dave mentions in his blog post, the Internet can be a good place and it can be a scary place. In this instance I believe that technology and the Internet have been used for good. Well played Dave.
