Hello to all!.
Recently, out of the desperation caused by the absolute lack of other gypsy jazz players here in Mexico, i`ve been investigating the sweet possibility of jamming on-line in real time. I`ve heard a story of a guy rehearsing with his whole band through the Internet so i`m guessing it can be done.
I`m thinking of using google talk and a PC mic and i might have a chance to try it next Tuesday.
Have any of you tried this before?
Would it be possible to add a "jam on-line" feature to this site? Michael?
Wouldn't` it be awesome?
I`m very interested in any information and opinions from all of the users of this forum.
Looking forward to playing with you!!

    Hi my knowledge online jamming is impossible because of the latency issues. You'd always be a fraction of a second behind the people you're trying to play with.

    Hi Michael,
    Yes...sadly that`s what i`ve learned...
    I read that it could work but only using midi, which sounds pretty bad.
    Anyone knows of a way to make it work with real instruments?
    Something like jamming on the phone with three way calling, maybe?
    If not i guess we`ll have to wait a few years...(please don`t let it be so)

    There`s something, only not nearly as fun which is to record your playing against a backing track and leave some space for the other player (s), then post it and wait for them to record their parts...could work like trading one chorus at a time...
    but as i said not as fun.
