Leap Year, I Can Fly!

By miraclemiles on March 27, 2016 9:14 pm

This is a new creation using some of the guitar parts from the session I used in my week 3 submission "Afro Dolce." I love these guitar parts, and want to make a bunch of songs with them. I played a take of live drums (recorded with two mics), and a take each of live djembe and bongos. Added a few tracks of midi drums to assist. Arranging at the dining room table as I usually do, grabbed the 7 year old son, put the headphones on him an said "sing." He sang "blah blah blah, I can fly" ... so there it was. It sounds kinds like "leap year" though, so went with that for title. Auto-chopped his voice into Simpler, and he tapped out a little part on the Push, told me which 4 bars to keep, how much of the effects to add and it appears briefly a few times. Last minute grabbed the other vocal sample from creative commons site, credit at end.
Guitar by AM Faulks / Monstrosus, (who just launched his YouTube Channel showcasing music, art and fun).

Thanks! Banging on those drums was fun ... need to do it more often. Spend more time finger drumming on pads now sad
