I'm interested as well.  The first battle is figuring out how to record to my computer.  The second battle is getting them to sound half-way decent due to the terrible acoustics and having only one mic.  Last battle is playing something half-way decent to submit.  :P

I will try it too. I have a friend bringing me his MP3 Recorder for a day.
Let us know when the rhythm track is ready to burn?

As long as the loop can be burned to CD, I have a way to record it now.
Count me in for sure this time.

I'd like to contribute something. I've never really shown the DC community anything that i've done before and i'd finally like to share what I can do. I'll just need the loop in MP3 format and i'll be good to go.

I've wanted to join in on the last two but between not having a good means of recording and being very intimidated about others hearing my playing I procrastinated just long enough to miss out.  SO I really want to do this.  I can now record to my IPOD so no excuse there.  My only problem will be finding the time - work is wacko now.  Anyway, count me in and if I flake, I'll do some penance by re-reading all of posts from 2003.  Bart, if all of us come through, you are going to be a busy man!

In what format do we submit our final clips? I think I could use my dad's recorder and mics (he plays guitar and sings), burn it to a CD and upload it on my computer or something....

No way!  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery BUT
I can tell you some other things that are definitely stealing.

Hannah,
When you get to be my age it is still learning from those better than you. Been trying to steal those lick most of my life and unfortunantly, I still don't have most of them right.  I just keep trying to play drums. ::)                   Nutty

I think it's a good excuse for Louis to get back in the saddle as well.

Okay ... the solo is a go!

Click  http://www.drummercafe.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,2/topic,20910.0]HERE  to learn more.

I trust that the loop is simplified enough that makes Felix happy, and enough Cowbell for Louis!

Instead of using the same old Cowbells, I used my Gankogui ... which are basically African Cowbells, although never intended to be used on a cow; it's just an instrument.

I don't know if it's just me, but I've tried downloading the clip three times and playing it with both Winamp and Audacity, and there is a significant wow and flutter on the bells.  Also, there is some distortion on the track.

Aside from that, I think I could hear that it was decently simple, and something I'd be happy to play to.
I'm not a particularly slow player, yet I don't play fast.  I play half-fast.

It must be your system; there's nothing wrong with the file or the loop that I can hear. I recorded this in Pro Tools, burned it as a 128bit, 44.1kHz file. I just downloaded the file I posted and listened through my laptop speakers and my studio monitors; sounds fine to me.

Perhaps your download was corrupted. Try deleting the file, rebooting your computer and downloading the file again.

Hi Bart,
It down loaded and is playing just fine for me.  Nice clear loop but I played it on Windows Media player. Now the work begins. Thanks,

I did the counting for those who want to know, and 16 measures (the max) is about 30 seconds.

Louis,

You have the best animation!!

Thanks!  I stole most of them.   ;D  Only joking....most were free, I purchased some, and I made some.

.it's simply learning from those better than you.  ;)

Yes it is and many times is called apprenticeship or internship.

I trust that the loop is simplified enough that makes Felix happy, and enough Cowbell for Louis!

I like a man who understands the importance of different cowbell sounds.
