We've got Tablature booked in-house this Sunday for our next studio show.
But for now, check out a clip from Matthew Miskin's time spent in the studio last weekend:
"We Will Get By, We Will Survive"
The "We Will Get By Project" is a grassroots project intended to bring musicians together from around the United States to create a united, creative front during the COVID-19 crisis. Please feel free to share this information with any other musicians that may be interested.
YOUR CHALLENGE: Included below are links to a backing track for Touch of Grey by the Grateful Dead. All musicians are challenged to record a video of themselves playing along to the backing track. The video and audio tracks from all musicians will be edited together to create one complete song, made up of musicians from around the country. Be creative! Sing, play, perform, and be yourself!
***(Please use the links below to access the backing track. We’ve re-recorded the song in-studio with a limited number of musicians in order to give you the most free space for your recording. Not using the below tracks may result in your recording improperly matching with the rest of the tracks)***
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARTICIPATION:
1. Visit the below YouTube links to listen to the backing track, three individual tracks have been created. One full track (guitar, drums, vocals), one track without vocals, and one track without drums. Song is in the key of "B".

TRACK W/NO VOCALS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2keftkzbak
2. Record video and audio of yourself performing to the song (playing an instrument, singing, harmonizing, or whatever talent you'd like to share). Be sure to use headphones while playing to the backing track to eliminate bleed through.
3. Once you have finished your recording, submit your video (and audio track if separate) to RemnantsRecordings@gmail.com
In the email, please include your name, what town/city & state you are representing, and the name of the band you play in (if you'd like to tell us!)
4. Stay tuned in to our Facebook event page, or keep an eye on your email, once our team has completed editing on the video we will upload it to share so that everyone can see the final result. And don't forget to be proud of the hard work you put in to "virtually" perform alongside musicians from all over the country! Together we’ll share our creativity, and a united message with the world “We Will Get By, We Will Survive”.
NOTE: If you experience any issues with emailing your file to RemnantsRecordings@Gmail.com, please contact us directly either through that email address or through our "Contact Us" page at www.RemnantsRecordings.com and we will be happy to provide an alternative method to send in your video!
