I have an amazing idea
 
Here's the game plan:

I'll start a band. On Youtube. A Youtube band.

I get a bassist, guitarist, and a singer. I'll be the drummer.

We all agree on a song to play, and we record ourselves covering it, without the actual music playing.

They send all the clips to me, and I edit us all together into one kick-@$$ cover song

AMAZING IDEA, OR WHAT???

Now here's where you come in: Do you know any good guitarists, singers, or bassists who would like to do this? Or are you one yourself?

This has been done before.

Sorry.

Doesn't mean you can't do it, though.

only problem i see with this is a potential for a vast potential difference in audio/visual quality of the different players.

Yeah, I realized it had been done before, and included this in my email. I guess it's more for fun, I guess. Plus, we can always put a spin on things=D

Well, I typed up a nice email to send to people (without seeming too much like spam), and I'm watching their videos first to make sure the instrument sounds good, and they don't look too weird or anything. But the nice thing about doing this on Youtube is that if someone is acting up, or they suck at playing, or whatever, you can simply kick them out and find someone else. You have an unlimited amount of talent.

This is how many bands work today. They send mp3's back and forth and work out the parts.

Well, if you can play covers fairly easier, would you like to play bass? I think it'll be fairly easy to find a guitarist, but I'm not anticipating finding a bassist (especially a singer...).

Anyways, Guz2, feel free to do it...even though I had the idea, it's already been done before, so...

What kind of singer are you looking for?
Mainly what type of music.

I'm thinking of doing pop rock, because even though a lot of musicians hate it (some like it, to be fair), it's fun to play, and the people like it. I was looking for a guy singer though, because I'm not a big fan of female singers singing songs that originally a guy had sung.

You're time doing what?

I'm not paying anyone...that's why ultimately, it would be great if they people participating already had a good fan base/ad revenue coming in, to benefit/profit from it.

I have a friend who's a singer, but she is a... she.

If they are fed, clothed, and cured, it only increases their proliferation. And what does that lead to? You guessed it--even more people to feed, cloth, and cure. It's a never-ending cycle. Think about it.

Exactly. This is called "survival of the fittest."

Humans are too ethical, too "humane," to do this. We get guilty thinking about how and why we were "chosen" to have a better life. "Why them and not me?"

It'll never happen in a million years, unless the human race suddenly becomes indifferent towards other humans.....

Have you ever read "The White Man's Burden." ? It's horribly racist, but it's kind of the essence of why humans help other humans in need. We feel its our "Duty."

But dude, you should try that your idea, it seems fun. and that playforchange video was awesome! the tambourine player was rockin!!! those rolls were smoooooooooooooooooooooth.

Oh and you should learn to love the female voice. I sure do.

Seriously? I find that to be an extremely ignorant and ethnocentric thing to say. You didn't get remotely close to political, just plain ignorant. Think before you post stuff like that. You owe me at least $5 now for continuing to monitor your "Amazing Idea" thread as it spirals into poorly thought out xenophobic disrepair...

I didn't mean to be offensive. I wasn't even recommending we do that. But you must admit, it's true. Every word of it.

Wow. And another thread turns into a stunning example of stupidity. Thanks.
