No, I have no trouble with ad-libbing. Do you have a separate voice layer? I still have mine (for the most part, until my Audacity file started whining about orphans, even though I didn't move anything... they're so fragile. So I had to mix in the rest with Goldwave, but I still have the original takes.)
I think it's funny that everyone recorded it all at once. I've been timing my takes in Audacity since last Thursday.
Alessio: You did well moving "I think I might be..............a body / maybe cries" together. What comes after a sigh into the skies in yours? I'm hearing "There goes my weekend" and I'm pretty sure that's not it, though that is hilarious... I want to try it like that now.
You actually got the "Shooting stars falling!" how I originally timed it, I couldn't quite get it myself so I subsisted a line from another verse to catch the rhythm.
That last part "More... " leaves a little chill up my spine.
I think the "I won't forget you / I talk to you and yet... won't let me get close to you / or try something new" 2x may be another weak link. Is the timing of the lyrics off? If I had the separate voice layers, I could try mixing some of these together just to see how it works. Actually, since I have the original file (from Flash, which sounds a little different) are there any programs to help me remove the music and leave only a capella
William: That Chipmunks one is very funny.
The alternate lyrics for the first verse (which sucks, obviously, now that makes two people struggling to keep it on time...) is:
The rain fell
There's questions in your eyes.
But I can't—arise—
For you.... to pass my way.
(I'm imagining a shy girl beating herself up over not standing up and talking to the guy that just looked at her)
The alternate shooting stars (of which I only sang one) are:
There's shooting stars falling!
They're burning and calling!
For you to get close to me,
And, say, I love you more...
There are shooting stars falling!
And myst—eries calling you... (I can't sing this one right)
For you to get close to me:
And start... dying too...
I've had some real trouble putting loops in the background because the music is so slow and gentle. I think I've identified some places where tambourine can go.
The rain fell (shake)
There's questions (shake)
In your eyes (shake)
But I cant (shake)
for you (shake)
to pass my way (shake)
I'll try it out when I get home on my naked FLAC. Lately, I prefer Goldwave for mixing because sometimes Audacity will not play the clip after copying and pasting, for no reason. Very frustrating. How do I find out the BPM on something with no accompaniment yet?
