Just want to bring up a topic that gets me a "tad" on the verge of exploding, and I think it applies to the new folks more so, than the old timers. Folks! When you are looking to add someone's talent/contribution to your project try to refrain from sending a volley of invites to multiple people for the same instrument. I don't audition to projects for a reason. Mostly because I have my own to deal with, so It is kind of a slap in the face to have someone send an invite, only to find out that he/she has sent 10 invites to other guitarists. That is both rude and inconsiderate of people's time. If someone wants me to do something in particular to their song and time allows, I more than gladly will do it. That means the project manager had a vision and knew who and and what he wanted added to his project. When I write a song I pretty much have a good idea of who I want doing what, so a couple of PMs is all it takes to get the right people onboard. But this random volley of invites has to stop, It is inconsiderate to have 10 guitarists invited so that the project manager can pick and chose whose tracks to use. If I wanted to audition to a collaboration I would do so on my own free will. I don't like the sneaky aspect of being reeled into an audition situation,,, I think the system should be set up so that a project manager could send only one invite per instrument, and then if the person invited declined it, then it'd free the project manager to invite someone else. Just think about it: If you are inviting someone is because hopefully you know enough about that persons capabilities and his/her talent is something you want in your project. To just randomly fire up 10 plus invites to different people is unacceptable...
