Free Major Sinner Backing Tracks

Post by MajorSinner » Tue Jun 19, 2012 11:13 am

Hi Guys...

I'm Jason... Producer and owner of Major Sinner Records Ltd..

I have been producing backing tracks and offering them as free to playalong videos on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/MajorSinnerRecords

People can buy them from iTunes.. BUT... I will be happy to work with you guys on this great forum and offer them to you for free !!!..

I would appreciate your feedback, comments, suggestions and especially requests....

My Original 'Slow Am' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEL2W2VGfoc&feature=plcp is by far the most popular.. but I get stuck when it comes to knowing what people want next... what keys.. what progressions etc...

I cannot read music.. so my tracks may not 'technically' be blues.. but again.. any comments or suggestions welcome...

Please let me know what keys, progressions, tempos or styles you would like and I will get onto it and share them here...

Please enjoy my tracks... and if you do... please share the youtube link to it...

Thanks Guys

Jason

:welcome: Jason,

please take a look at our forum rules: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8

Usually we try to stay away from anything that's not public domain or 100% self created because it's easy to break a copyright, even if it's just a lapse.

Hi..

Sorry.. But I thought I had cleared this post with admin via email before I posted !?.. Please remove if its within breach of rules.

My tracks are free to listen and share on youtube... they are ALL my own creations and copyrighted by myself (MSRL).. But.. I am not all about the money... and make very little from sales on iTunes... I do this through my passion... and because of that I am happy to share them with you guys on here...

My idea was that any tracks or progressions that are made through help, advice or requests from this forum.. will be made available as FREE downloads to this forums members... I am not out here posting links to spam your forum or make money from it.. But I feel your members may appreciate some of the tracks available... and I certainly would appreciate help and coments from you guys...

If this post is removed I understand and no problems... otherwise.. please enjoy the tracks and let me know your thoughts :)

Kind Regards
Jason

The issue there was that a forum member had Downloaded my track and offered it on here as a free download... Without my permision...

All I ask is that tracks are Linked to on youtube.. and as I would aprpeciate feedbacl from this forum.. I have offered to give FREE downloads for forum members on any new tracks I make.. so the will be no copyright issues...

I hope that makes sense !?... :D

Welcome Jason.

I'll leave it up to Gerd (12bar). But I do understand the tense confusion that came up.
I'm willing to believe you are proposing the above in good faith and trust (thanks for that).
Please try to understand that the main thing we want to stay away from is copyright issues ( you stood in your right when posting in the first topc, about the "free" bt).
We all like, love and care for 12bar.de to much to risk it getting booted off the web caused by copyright issues.

we are all simple man so please outline the steps for us to follow when using your youtube tracks ( 1, 2, 3 ,4 ,5 etc)
About your Itunes tracks what are the players right and obligations when using those ?

Please mind, me asking is not an OK from Gerd, I'm only a poor part-time admin here :D

Thank you for your reply Hans...

Re YouTube.. Anyone is invited to play along as many times as they like.. (note to get the best quality sound watch in in HD)... There is no obligation to buy the track from iTunes.. But if you want a HQ audio version of it then it's an option.

Please note that I could now be using YouTube monetization to make money by having adverts at the beginnIng of my videos.. But for the Benifit of viewers I removed the adverts..

I apologise if I came across as stroppy when I contacted you.. But I'm sure you understand why.. But music especially guitar is my passion.. That is why I immediately contacted Gerd offering to provide tracks to your forum.

I don't have rules or contracts.. But this is how I see it...

1. YouTube.. Listen and play along to as many times as you like.
If you like the track.. Please share by sharing a link to the video..
Download from iTunes if you want a copy of it.
Please feel free to post a video response.. Preferably with a link to the original BT.

2. iTunes Downloads... Usual terms.. For use by buyer.. Not to be copied and reissued.

3. Future FREE tracks...
I would like to work with your forum and members to produce new tracks.
I will still put them on YouTube and iTunes BUT... I will host the tracks for free download to all forum members.. It will be hosted on one of my sites and a link to the download will be made available on here.. And a covering email to Gerd giving permission for the forum to use it.. But not redistribute it..

Members are welcome to post their playing along with the track on here.. The only thing I ask again is a link to the track on YouTube..

Hope this is of some interest !?

I think the conditions are now clear, when posting a BT please add a link to this page, so everyone knows how to use them.
It's currently very quiet here, I'm too very busy at the end of term at my university. Haven't played guitar since my last upload. Better times will come!

I will be posting links on here for NEW backing tracks.. made with help and suggestions from this forum...
The only way to download the old ones is from iTunes.


Does this mean that we have to put up a link to the BT when we upload the song based on major sinners BT's ??
I am very happy for people to upload / share videos / mp3's of them playing to my tracks... All I ask is that 'Major Sinner' is mentioned as the backing track.. or a link to the track on youtube would be appreciated.

Does it mean that's OK to use Major sinners BT's downloaded from you tube ??
I don't think you can 'Download' from youtube... you would have to use iTunes.. or record whats playing on youtube as you jam along !?...

I think the simple answer is....
Please don't offer them as free downloads.... share the link with people..
Please feel free to record your sessions with them and repost them for others to hear.. just please mention Major Sinner or Share the link..

Cheers... Now if everyone is happy.. please suggest some keys / speeds / progressions and I'll get on with some new tracks... Which WILL BE FREE to forum members...
