I may not have lyrics for track 2 yet, but I am pretty damn pleased with the vocal parts that Amanda, Lindsey, and I just wrote.
We got together just like last time: notepads, instruments, and drinks at the ready.
There are a couple of breaks in track 2, and for the second one (right after the “chorus”) I wanted some oohs and ahhs. I knew the melody that I wanted to sing, but we were going for 3 part harmony here. (Last time we met, we only had 2 parts to tackle…)
We also decided that making discrete “whoa-oh-ohs” would be pretty sweet too. The interplay of vocals is subtle, but fun when you pay attention!
Again, it took about two hours to write and record parts that we were happy with, and I think we did pretty well. While we had a decent mix after recording, I still spent an hour or two last evening editing and mixing the levels until I was content with sharing the file.
You might also notice that I put my voice in the middle, Lindsey in the right ear, and Amanda in the left.
Anyhow, the 24 second clip below represents about 10 person-hours of work, so enjoy!
