Post Forum Jam poll: What BT?
I'm gonna host another forum jam before school starts. So in the span of maybe 1-2 months. What kind of backing track do you guys wanna play over? Just a poll so I'd know how many people would join. I couldn't decide what BT to use. Please answer the following questions:

1. Rhythm track (choose 1): rock, metal, funk, acoustic
2. Chord changes? (Y/N)
3. Upbeat, slow melodic, or middle-ground?
4. How long per solo in seconds (max 1.5 mins)? (shorter solos = more people can join. I'm keeping the jam at around 15-20 minutes)

THANK YOU. Reply fast so I can host it soon. Tits.

No disrespect to you jazzers around here, but this is the GODDAMN RACER X BOARD. Make the track suit that.

Metal, sure, but one that shit players like me can try to keep up with. Or something between Rock and Metal. Something with a little X.

The problem with that is we've done FOUR rock tracks already. Do you want a metal/rock track for every jam? I certainly don't. And it's difficult to find good metal/rock ones. Most of the time I can only find blues backing tracks. Nobody's providing or suggesting BTs either

EDIT: Also, I've tried to mix up the BTs everytime. I only started playing fusion before the last forum jam and I didn't even include any changes on it. Also, this is why I'm ASKING what BT because I don't wanna throw in something only that I like.

Agreed with the YouTube comment, sounds like Malmsteen I think. Pretty awesome though. Maybe I'll participate in this Forum Jam... if you guys will have me. :P

Very cool, Robin!

And I sincerely meant no disrespect Pao. I mean, I guess making a comment like that without a suggestion makes me look like a bit of an ass, huh?

Post Re: Forum Jam poll: What BT?
not at all - you make a VERY valid point - this is a racer X forum.

I think there are 4 types of fan on here

Those guys like Ken and Skippy who are original fans and are just as metal as they always were - they've given up hope on RX so we don't see them here too much

Then you have guys like Pao myself and Brian who have been here many years (not nearly as many as Ken!) and much like RX we're off doing other things now, it doesn't mean we love racer X or metal any less, we're just exploring different avenues of our playing. We're still here because of the good old days, there were (and still are) some good friends of mine on here, and this place will always be my main home

Guys like Lamer and Zesty don't give up hope on the X and remain metal motherfuckers - they can pick like satan and will always be who they are, I stay here because guys like them are great fun to chat with, lots of memories there

Then you have the newcomers, guys who may have just found out about racer x and/or have a passing interest.... the lack of any activity on here means they may stay, they may not... chances are they're all metalheads too.... as you'd expect from anyone into racer X

I have no intention (and I'm sure I speak for many of the fusionheads here) of turning this place into a jazz forum.... but at the same time, it would be a little off key to automatically expect Pao to bend over backwards and not do something that showcases what hes all about. We need to get a balance between the two.

Pao - how about the solo section from Direct Injection? It's so simple that we could all play over it.... but at the same time, there's the option to get a little out on it too.

What Levi said summarizes everythang lol.

No, it's all good Jerhova. I sounded a bit pissed but I wasn't! Sorry about that!

Anyway, I checked out what Sir Robin posted and it seems pretty hard to loop. I'll see if I can work a way around it and maybe we can.

Levi - I like Direct Injection. Since it's just a one note BT anyone can play whatever they like. It gets boring, though? It's a good suggestion!

Keep the suggestions coming, guys. I'm also on the lookout for good ones. I'll put up a real poll in a week or so so you guys can vote on the list of BTs you've suggested and the ones I've found.


EDIT:

1 - Slow rock backing track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MEj65X1Lo0 (sounds 90's-ish to me) - Long loop, though, cause I wanna include that heavy ending. But I might edit it and make a version of my own if you like it.

2 - 80's metal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG19FBRrzbQ (Racer X-ish but I'd say more Judas Priest)

If I were to choose between the posted BT, I'd say the first one Pao posted.
