Sweet Senhorina of the Sand

What a nice template from João! And Brian and Peter took this in a really joyful direction 🙂 Couldn’t resist to dance a little tango with my fretless bass on it. Recorded in the first take, thanks for a wonderful jam my friends! Hope you like my groundwork on this.

Bossa for a charmer

This is the same as the “chirping” bossa from two days ago – with an addtional very nice harp played by Thierry:

Alpine chalet

User “frankiejazz” on Wikiloops had uploaded a really nice track of some acoustic guitars and some percussion which sounds much like a cajon. And since he chose “Alpine chalet” as a title for his song, another user commented with a picture of such a castle:

There are two remixes I also really liked, and so I wasn’t sure on which I should play myself. I downloaded Franco’s template track first, and recorded myself over it:

But since I liked these remixes as well, I also downloaded them, and tried the same bass on it. So here’s one with “Pit Brett” playing harp over Frankie’s original template, plus my same bass like before:

While uploading all this I discovered the next great track already. But that will be dealt with later.

Thanks for listening.

A bossa & chirping

That is Peter’s working title after he performed as a great whistler on a template from FrankieJ. And because I love bossa, and loved his whistling even more, I couldn’t resist to add some bass to it. It’s still not ready yet – another solo, or some vocals would make it more complete. But have a listen:

Miles and miles of smiles

Played to Joe ‘Relativity’s cool track on Thursday. It isn’t ready, but I still couldn’t resist to add to it:

Worldwide Disco on wikiloops.com

Wikiloops recently turned 7 years old – in fact today it’s exactly 7 years and 1 month since Richard created it (and thanks again for doing that, man!).

And to celebrate that a bit, we’ve decided to put together some band-like projects, film ourselves while playing, and to put these together to videos. And today was the premiere of the first one, the disco group / band / project.

So please meet:

  • Vocals: Aleonz, Indonesia
  • Drums: mpointon, England
  • Bass: Alex Sarikov, Russia
  • Guitar: Tofzegrit, France, and – last not least
  • Keys: Marceys, Netherlands

I’m happy and proud that I was also invited into one of these, so there will be more videos to follow when they are done.

Thanks for watching. And if you are a musician as well – come and join us jamming at Wikiloops!
