    honestly i think youve bitten off plenty already hahaha
    i would obviously love to see an update at every stage, but if we do not see you on the forum again until may i would understand.
    i am following this more out of curiosity than to make sure you stick by the rules etc, so you should do whatever makes you happy.
    i mean, you should always do that anyway, you dont have to wait for my permission. this time :D

    that said, i would like to watch the social media pages grow from nothing to platinum record grade. that might actually be enough to make me go on social media. i wouldnt create an account or anything, but i would type the url into my browser and even press enter.

    Hey, I just wanted to pop in and say that although I didn't participate in the vote (I'm more of a lurker) I am inspired and interested in your progress.
    Often forums are just an outlet for talk/chat, which can sometimes be the antithesis of actually doing. Not knocking the forum - I've learnt a lot on here - but between here and checking out what's new on the sister site, sometimes I feel like there is a lot of time that could be better spent doing/creating.
    So I wanted to let you know that you've inspired me to do my own challenge - I'm not brave enough to do it in public view like you, but have set myself a deadline of March 31 to record a cover song that I feel will be useful to my own playing/recording development.
    So, thanks again for inspiring and motivating me to be more productive - and all the best with your own challenge, I will definitely be tracking your progress!

    @sevente thank you!

    I sing, I write. My friends fail if I don't force myself out there. Curious about band/song you choose to cover, but if you want to lurk your path is chosen... Just put the results out there!

    Aw geez, thanks you guys.
    The song is 'I Could Have Lied' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers - not too difficult and not planning to do anything radical. I already know a few of the licks, it's more about learning all the guitar and bass parts, especially John F's lead - and getting back on the horse after a long break from recording/creating, setting myself a challenge with a deadline.
    Cheers!

    i propose a stand by on this project.
    the challenge was to create a platinum record with 10 million followers in two months, not to create a platinum record with 10 million followers in two months during a global toilet roll crisis.
    once the dust settles there are loads of ways to start up again. can worry about that when it comes to it.

    Plat with 10 mill followers we can not do my friend. But, project is still rolling. Songs are up, bases created, everything insane but on track. At the end of the day we all have obstacles... Whatever we get to after 8 weeks is where it ends up. I chose a short period because no one goes from start to finish in 8 weeks, but a healthy start still possible.

    I've done about 15 songs, social media all created, everything is on track. 6 weeks to keep the ball rolling, whatever happens, happens!

    Also, I haven't done the requests here yet, building bases. The themes/genre here is coming asap, just needed a base. Appreciate the concerns, but life will always be difficult... Wish I was better prepared for this chaos, could have worked for me, but no lies, everything I'm doing created etc, all done from March 14th on. No cheating!

    Time for a followup. I've mentioned I'm out of meds. My recording studio flooded...

    When did this vote begin? That day life started turning to crazy for all of us. I've taken picture's of the "discarded" new recording studio, @The Pirate , you've mentioned you've recorded singers before. I really wish you could see this now. I'll be sharing the blue prints at the end of this project.

    I deal with numbers. I'll do my best with means in reach for anyone that wants and wills to succeed. @tun I thank you, but the project, our lives hold for nothing. Everything moves forward. Everything is will power. It's in all of us and we all tap it different ways.

    I can't guarantee that May 1st is the end all. I can promise that this isn't about me, it's about music, it's about harmony, it's about finding out what we need and want to do in a way that reaches everyone that wants to hear it.

    And it's always more than we think.

    If I could teach any lesson in life. The most important thing that ever mattered.

    It's never fail yourself.

    Yes. This.
    The best thing you can do for others comes from the ability to do the best for yourself.

    you are a truly admirable soul!
    i dont know how you have managed 15 trcks in that time! i envy that ability. i get too caught up in meaningless mix tweaks. i probably finished 15 tracks total in my life :rofl:
    im looking forward to seeing the outcome of all this.
