What's new in Music Collaboration

There has never been a time when music collaboration has been so easy. In the privacy of your own home. You don't have to lug your gear anywhere. I wish we always had this.

Girls and young women shredding guitar

What is going on? If you haven't spent a few hours checking out youtube video's lately you better have a look. There are a lot of girls and young women between five and fifteen years old that can shred guitar like a jaded old rocker. There is a few boys that can do it too but it seems to me the boys are not at the level of the girls.

Here's a couple:

There are lots more. I suspect that before the end of the decade the typical age of a working guitar player will be under 21. What are they feeding these children? How can an eight year old play Ozzy Osbourne almost as good as the man himself? Why do girls and young women want to play the most scorching hot classic rock there is? Clearly, they are Rockers. Nobody but a Rocker would risk being that far out of date. I tell people all the time that the only time I have anything to do with trends is when I am setting them. These young ladies are the embodiment of that sentiment.

Time will tell but it looks like interesting times ahead.

Disabled list grows, :(

It was a rough year. 8 collaboration sites went down: wemusic.veenue.com, koblo.com, ultimateband.com, trackbeast.com, sawubona-musicjam.com, digitracs.com, thounds.com, fuseboard.com, .

We had a couple of marriages: riffworks.com and sonomawireworks.com tied the knot. Either domain works now. Congrats!

Also, oneloudr.com and notethrower.com made it legal. best wishes! ;)

We got one back, yes! openmusicfactory.com is alive and well. Great to have you back on the main list.

We had 4 domains leave the disabled list for new genres: musicollaborate.com is a blog. nzjams.com is a job search site. rifftrader.com is a professional housewife site. and splicemusic.com is an archive. Farewell and good luck in the new genres.

We have a new listing: studiotraxx.com , good luck. Last but not least we made it back to page 5 on a generic google search. We have a ways to go. say la vee.

Kompoz.com Relaunch

Hi everyone,

It seems like only days ago this new year started and it's a third done. I haven't even gone through the main list yet. I got a nice email from Kompoz. they have been doing a lot of upgrades and it sounds exciting. Compatibility seems to be order of the day. Lots of file formats. Friendly to many sound editors. Working hard on latency issues worldwide. Keep up the good work.
