Cooped up Collective Launched

I have taken the opportunity of everyone being cooped up at home to launch an online band!

Anyone anywhere in the world can join. Any instrument, singers, rappers beat poets,….

I have started it all up by writing the tune “Cooped up”.

There is a simple repeating 2 bar groove wich is G7 followed by a C7 with flat9 flat 6 added in. If you are a jazzer and wondering what scale to play – any scale with a G in it will probably do the trick – new and fantastic scales welcome and encouraged.

You can download music and mp3 examples and a backing track on the main page.

Learn the tune or a harmony part or the guitar, drum or bass groove. Or write a new vocal line and add words. Anything goes.

Record yourself playing it. With or without the backing track and upload it to the Facebook Page.

All and any instruments welcome. No limits.

All sorts of opportunities may then present themselves. Maybe a global tour in 2021 linking up all the contributors. Who knows?

For the moment it stops me getting bored and gives some creative connection with the rest of the world.
