BassIAB 2007.2 (was "Bass-in-a-Box II")

The Idea:
Bass-in-a-Box (BassIAB) gives you a chance to demonstrate your creativity while learning about the creative process of other bassists here at Bassplaying.com. The idea is simple:

  • We provide a backing track (mp3) without a bass line and a chord chart (PDF).
  • You load it into your Digital Audio Workstation and record a bass line.
  • You export the entire track to a single mp3 file.
  • You post a link to your file to the Bass-in-a-Box thread in the forum.
    • Talk through your recording and creative process.
    • Need hosting? We'll host the file for you! Just email it to Wheat and we'll send you a link you can use in your post.
  • Listen to the other versions and discuss them.

Get the idea? It's simple. It's fun. It gives you a chance to learn how other bassists think and pick up some bass line creation and recording techniques. It's not a competition, it's an excuse to have fun and learn.

Dates:
This one officially opens on April 1st, 2007 and runs until June 30th, 2007. You can jump in at any time.
