    May be it'd better be posted to Recording Studio section, but whatever. Administrators can move it if needed.

    Here's the idea:

    In below clip, there are some key pads laying down chords, changes, should you prefer the term.
    The ideaa is to add more instruments in following clips, drums, bass, rhythm guitar, melody, ...,
    and finally solo guitar over it.

    Also, I'd love if some of you, those who feel this is on their level, would take it and do your own thing over it.
    You can use it from whatever stage of development. From only keys to complete tune, and do whatever pleases you.
    With composition, aswell as with recording. I'd appreciate if you'd credit me by giving original link, or whatever. I'm
    not to come to controll,though, so don't worry.

    Also, it would be nice if you'd post your results here. If you don't feel like posting, please send me some link on PM, or e-mail, so I can hear it.
    Again, no obligations, pure curiosity.

    Here's the clip (BTW it's 3rd part of a road trip series from Serbia to San Marino and back). Later today, I'll post a link to chords progression:

    Here's the link to a page with .pdf - http://carcameraclips.webs.com/files , The name of the file is "In The World"

    There's couple more pdfs there.

    Note: Don't give up without trying. Although it may seaam complicated at first sight, it is not, really. If you don't know how to approach it, wait till the later stage, when I add more instruments and just shread over it in D major, or B minor pentatonics, or whatever.

So, should anybody else wanted not to give own links, you can send files to me and I'll upload them to SoundCloud, ok, .... here it is:

    Another step, drums are added to the mix. Also, in the second half of the clip again only keys andd bass, because bass was wrong on couple of notes in previous clip ....

    re picture: a night drive from Verona to Bologna (Italy), on community roads, at one point I opted for U turn, and back to a bit larger road ....

    So, here's the trial recording with Intro and melody played on guitar. I could hardly play that intro in tempo. Could not get the feel. it was not musical enough.

    Therefore, I edited it, sort of visually quantized audio to the grid with small random offsets, all based on idea "If I can't naturaly make it musical, I'll make it mechanical, and I'll do it mechanicaly".

    Note, I played lying in the bed, with numbnes in left arm from elbow all the way throygh the edge of the palm, to pinky and ring fingers. It's all from awkward position i'm in for 5-6 days already. I'm still on antibiotics and have laptop with me, so I'm costantly twisted to the left with lower part of left arm under me, to support me, head on left shoulder, while I type with my right hand/ arm. I tried playing this while seated and it was much better, much easier to follow the tempo. In a day or two I'll record it all again, probably with some rhythm guitar, too.

    So, Stage 5, where Rhythm guitar is added. Played on tele, twice, for one chorus, tha pasted to the following.

    Actually I did this couple of days ago, but did not upload it due national days of mourning to commemorate victims ofthe flood we had last week. I'm from Serbia, but it was nothing better in Croatia and Bosnia. The worst one in more than 120 years, so they say.

    Intro solo is now good enough, I won't redo it, it's all played, no audio quantization. The moment I got up from bed, in sitting position, I could play it. Also, I've changed from 25.5 scale Tele to 24.something X-155.
    Guide melody on guitar throughout the first chorus is the same old edited one, with the synth one for the rest 2.

    The next and final step will be improvising over it.

    Stage 6, the final stage. Solo guitar is added.

    it's all played, on Squier Telcaster MIJ E6...., no audio quantization.

    Improvisation on the 1st and 3rd chorus, melody on the 2nd.
    Previous melody on guitar is removed. One on the synth doubles for the 2nd chorus and supports occasionally in the 3rd.
