Dream Musician: a few steps up from air guitar


Anybody who plays music wishes, at one time or another, that they could play with their favorite band, and although Dream Musician won't get you on stage with them, with a little imagination, you can have a near-genuine experience. Dream Musician is a music download service which is a little bit like karaoke, but for instruments like guitar, bass, drums, etc. Whether you play along well is beyond their control, but again, with a little imagination . . .

Tracks are $2.00 each and in Windows Media Format; by the end of 2006, they're hoping to have over 1,000 songs. It's no iTunes selection-wise, but it's a start. The selections include major label content plus independent label content, and indie artists are invited to submit their music, with revenue to be shared 50/50.

Hey, and even if you aren't that great a musician, if you buy the track without the instrumental part you fancy yourself playing, at least there will be nothing there to compare your performance to.

So very cool! I know so many air guitarists who would love this:)


Michael Rivers:

Probably worth mentioning that service is currently only available to Canadian residents. Guess the plenty-of-people-that read-this-in-"the rest of the world" might appreciate knowing that...
