The folks at BandLab brought a very interesting, fun, and useful musical-collaboration app/software to Guitar Player Central, so Associate Editor Matt Blackett and I decided to give it a spin.
I had an idea for an intro riff on the way to the office one day, so I recorded it into my phone (after pulling off the road safely and parking, of course). Then, I used BandLab to present that idea to Matt so that he could expand it more fully — and in a much cooler way. You can see the results, and get a quick introduction to the whole BandLab universe in the video below.
I had a blast co-writing with BandLab. All composers who embrace collaboration should check out BandLab's features, its ease of use, its user community, and its cloud-based format that ensures all versions of your musical journey are saved and always available for review and further tinkering.
