Dreaming of making music with someone out there on the Internet? With Bandhub, now’s your chance!
I get excited whenever I discover something new and cool. This morning, thanks to a YouTuber who happened to find one of my videos, I discovered Bandhub, an app that allows users to connect and collaborate with musicians from around the world. It’s free to join and, though I’ve only been playing with it for a little while, it looks pretty easy to use. The first thing I’ve learned so far is that the site works best with Google Chrome.
Here’s a video that explains how this site works.
Basically, you make an account, upload a photo, tell people what kind of music you like and what instruments you play, and let the app access your YouTube channel. Then you can connect with other musicians and make music online. I will admit that I haven’t yet tried the process yet myself. The person who alerted me to Bandhub asked me to collaborate with him on a rendition of “Fly Me To The Moon”. I’m not sure exactly how it will work with the video he has already posted because that song isn’t really a duet and he’s already singing on it.
I do see that there are a number of talented people on Bandhub. Have a look at this link to see how the collaborations work. Here, there are several musicians adding tracks to make one song, in this case, “The Boy From Ipanema”. There’s a guitar player, a percussionist, a harmonica player, and a female singer all working together remotely.
Once you’ve made your collaboration on Bandhub, you can upload it to YouTube, like the video posted below.
Here’s a Bandhub collaboration video I found on YouTube. Pretty cool!
I just joined Bandhub myself and have a fancy new page. I can hardly wait to try this with someone. Stay tuned!
