I imagine the editing would be the tricky part, and I have no idea how that would be done. However, if we can get a group of people to agree on a classic tune (requirements...has to be popular enough that everyone on the forum would be somewhat familiar with it) it would be fun to watch a video that changed guitarists every 15 seconds or so, with the final cut being a relatively smooth version of the song performed in sequence by a whole lot of us.

    Am I being clear? Is this something you guys would be interested in....and, above all...is it "do-able"???
    Bennett, your idea is a good one, but it's not for me; I'm strictly audio-oriented so that the sound quality will be better, and not interested in video at all, except scoring, which is something different completely.

    Also, original music is my thing; not interested in re-inventing someone else's work. I would also think an original piece would give the musicians peace of mind, to stretch out a little without worrying about being compared to some guitar god or other.

    Finally, it would be a crazy amount of work to find everyone's best phrases, fit them into an edit, and so on. I'd be happy to provide a track that people could work on for themselves. That's as far as I'd go.

    If people liked the track, fine, if not no one's arm would be twisted to play on it. I'm not interested in a committee approach to the writing, it's just not my thing.
