I am currently recording a song. I have one a drum track (done by the great Will Jones: http://www.drumtracksdirect.co.uk/ ), a piano track and some vocals to show how the song goes.
If there is anyone that wants to help out with a guitartrack og a basstrack I would be very thankful. :)
Demo of the song:

Cool song. I'd love to play on it, but for a fee. I have some great ideas for it.

Feel free to get in touch.

Of course, I'm a professional. Do you work for free?

Most people have done and will do, working doesn't always mean a job.

Hello. I could be interested to pay if I like what you do. Depends how much you want for it though. I am sure we can agree on some sort of payment.

Thanks for replying :)

Yeah, it's interesting to me that I'm more likely to get money if I do sound tech-ing for someone. For some reason playing guitar is just one of those things you're expected to do for free.

Having said that, a request like this one is probably one that I'd do for free. Bearing in mind that it's always on a 'if you get money for it, then so do I' basis. You don't want to do something like this out of charity and then wake up one morning and see it on Oprah or something, netting the guy a huge bundle of cash.

Cool song, anyway. Let us know if you finish it up!

Surely beats the hell out of Treasure Moment and Tranqvilla. That's a compliment, since they're the new Queen and all. :)

On a serious note, it sounds pretty cool. Keep up the good work!

This wasn't exactly a job offer. 

I do several shows a year for free... mostly charity stuff.  I'd probablysay 90% of my gigs are paid gigs.  But if someone uploads a song and is wanting some ideas/help that would require very little effort on my part (just playing and emailing), I would think I would come off as quite pretentious if the first thing I brought up was money.

I guess that shows what kind of professional YOU are as opposed to what I am.

I guess that also shows why I work a lot more than you do.  3 shows this weekend plus a 5 hour block of session work.

Way to go, Dane.  Showing the true spirit of Queenzone.

Since when are you an expert on my professional life? Was there ever a time when you weren't so bitterly arrogant?

I won't spend 20 minutes half-assing something. I happen to see a solid afternoon of dedication to a song as work, because this is what I do for a living. If you don't agree, I respect that. No need to attack others and embellish details about their lives because they feel differently than you. But this kind of thought is clearly beyond your grasp..

Cheerfully awaiting your charming review of the song.

To the topic starter - thanks for getting in touch. Looking forward to working with you !

I just spent a couple of hours playing with the song
and I must say it really doesn't need all that much guitar!

Sounds pretty cool as it is!

It does lack some bass...

Yup, project aborted because someone expressed their opinion.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Next time you should get a "deposit"....

But then, since you're a professional, you've already deposited the check.

Yeah.  Ok.

I heard nothing more from The Real Wizard so I needed to look for other options. Version here though with guitar, drums, bass and vocals:
