    Haha cool. Yeah that's it. I just use the rectangle shape from the root and then fill it sometimes with pentatonic notes just going up

    So you've got the A, and the rectangle above it starts with the A octave higher up and then goes down which you've already done.

    Then when you go to the D just do the rectangle below it which starts on F# and goes up.

    The fills are just pentatonic, so just play all the notes up or down. So in the case of the D, I just use the rectangle first and then the next time round I just do F#, G, G# and then A to bring you back.

    You can chuck any old shit in really as long as you're in that rectangle

    That's why I wanted a bit more space to be able to do that rectangle lower than the root note so you have more options to move about a bit.

    And there's your walking blues bass line. Try it on a double bass, it's amazing and also piss easy :)

    I was bored so I did something rather silly: https://soundcloud.com/user-610374480/just-silly/s-rewVXPhBUuB

    Please note it is not, in any way, a serious proposition.

    You get used to the shape so after time you'll be doing it in your sleep. That rectangle will fit any 12 bar blues song you play along to. Try it!

    Another vote for the funk one.

    By the way, where are we with the big collabo?

    In regards of the mooted collabo, we could look at something like a version of In C. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_C

    @Mr_Sleep

    Someone was offering to layer it all in logic though I needed to know what file format to prepare it as I'm on pc not mac

    I think aiff is the format for logic but I am fairly sure it can use a wav as it just converts it in the program.it may even be interchangeable these days.

    Ok cool. When the thunder kicks in tomorrow I'll see if I can record it and I'll come back here to ask about it etc.

    Can't right now, too sunny and I'm far too stoned :)

    I can't even contemplate playing or recording anything in this heat. My face would just melt all over my computer.

    Right, it's not hot now so we can get on with it.

    We need to know who's involved, what method we're using, and who's doing what.

    I'll go first - Bass.

    Next?

    I can also do keys, program some drums and edit as necessary, assuming no one takes up the mantle.

    @quadfather I think we can use your funk 12 bar blues as a bedrock and go from there. Either that or I could programme a drum track or something. We can do five minutes or something.

    Sounds good. Ok. Send me a funky blues drum track and I'll do it that way we can sort the file format out too

    I have loads of plug in kits and can make a bunch of different loops. Granted, I wont be able to get much done this evening but I can do whatever people want in the way of drum loops.
