Thank you. My friend plays guitar, thought this would be an excellent tune for us both to noodle about on.
The key for Guitar (a C or concert pitch instrument) is Bb minor, as mentioned by Chris in post #1 of this thread.Which notes would a guitarist use for this please? Is a guitar concert c pitch, therefore it is Bb blues? Did try and look on internet but a bit confusing.

Jonnie I might be wrong but to allow downloads from 'Soundcloud' you need a 'Pro' acc which costs ££'s. It would work if guys used Box.com as a site to store the track etc, that ones free and the one I useChris
I think you deserve a massive pat on the back for coming up with this
I wonder if those brave souls who have already thrown their contribution in might consider changing their settings on sound cloud to allow download?
I am working on Audacity building up my own ditty piece by piece I'll tentatively throw it out onto this thread when I am done.
I was quite surprised to hear just how radically different the interpretations were and assuming that everyone has left the backing track exactly as it was then its a marvelous opportunity for anyone using Audacity for this to put other peoples offerings on tracks that would then be automatically sync'd with their own work - nothing like being able to tune into someone else's ideas when you get stuck or just compare notes for interest? So easy to be able to mute or unmute another persons lines once its all loaded in.
PS: Hope you don't mind but I already have stolen 3 notes off you I liked your soft intro very much
I am not advocating plagiarism here just trading of ideas.
Anyway good on you I hope it can happen again at later time with another track although I am sure there is still some mileage in your first offering Honey Rose yet, perhaps people using the same tracking software might even exchange files and so have some kind of remote jam session with player 1 leaving spaces for player 2 and then vice-versa - do a bit of miracle editing and then hey presto offer up a combined offering.
That sounds very good Jonnie, nice one.Another version albeit very late...actually just a rough sketch of ideas
Recording level too high or mic got flooded ( clipping on loudest high notes)
Lots of mistakes, repeats and opportunities missed but despite this there is a roughness I like so I am posting this one, need another motif or two.

For me this is about the aftermath of a fight between lovers who have a tough life, its peaceful now, the lull after the storm but the echoes from when they were tearing strips off each other are still in the room.
I've alway just thought of a + sign to mean altered, as you said raised 5th.Does the "+" in the chord name mean "augmented", meaning that F7+ and Bb7+ would be dominant seventh chords with a raised fifth? This is what they sound like to me. The only reason I'm asking is because I thought the "+" was typically placed after the root, as in "Bb+7".
Great first version, looking forward to hearing more over the coming months as hopefully you'll revisit the thread as time ans mood allow.I don't know if anyone is still following this thread, but I would like to join in. First of all let me say that I think this is a great idea -- thanks to @Chris for providing the backing track.
This recording is very low-fidelity because I was visiting my parents and all I had was my portable recorder (Zoom H2n). I faded it out after the second progression because that's the moment when I realized the H2n was clipping, and so I stopped playing to lower the gain, and afterwards my playing was not as good. I've only just started working on this tune, and I find the key(s) to be quite difficult! I will post another recording when I can play all the way through decently, hopefully with better fidelity as well.
