I noticed as we started talking / joking about The Garrett Klotz Argument, it took on a life of its own. I also noticed that, the more we talked about it, the more I realized I was serious about wanting to try to do something about it. Unfortunately, I've also noticed how hard it is to arrange get-togethers for the BSH community.
Therefore, my fellow musicians, I have a proposition for ye, fair and true.
I say we act like the group The Postal Service and send each other tracks either through the mail or through a shared internet host where we can download files for recording / playalong. For example, I could record a guitar / metronome track and send to Lindbergh31. He can add a bass track to it and send to The Dark for marimba or percussion. Then The Dark could send to Fezzlekway for vocals. Fezz could send back to me and I could mix.
We could collaborate entirely by mail and FTP server in a low-key fashion - no gigs, no rehearsals, just people making music for ourselves and our e-friends here at BSH. And who knows - maybe someone will throw a Stanley Cup party at the end of next season and The Garrett Klotz Argument could provide the entertainment.
So what are your thoughts? I'd love to hear what you all think. If anyone's game, let's get crackin'. I already wrote a song, which I've tentatively titled "Through The Wickets." I can record and send it, probably by the end of next week, if anyone's interested.
(For the record, I'm aware I didn't reference all of the musicians from the original thread. It's nothing personal - I just picked a few at random, largely because I remembered what they played.)
