Lift Every Voice and Sing

By Riku on January 14, 2018 9:39 pm

The initial idea for this song came from my Mother, who suggested I do a blues-y version of the church hymm 'Lift Every Voice and Sing.' I really liked the song, and messed around with guitar, muted trombone, and some other instruments. However, when I started playing with my Electric Piano, it clicked. I wanted this to be a four part ensemble, with Vibes and a rhythm section, and an Electric Piano solo. So, I drew up some sheet music in Musescore, used a preset drum track in my keyboard, and recorded this. This took a lot more effort than last weeks', because I didn't have a microphone stand to record the vibes with. So, I got creative with a music stand. It was quite the adventure.
If you want sheet music for this week or last week, send me a message, and I can get that to you.
Hope you enjoy this shuffle-y version of Lift Every Voice and Sing!

Well, I haven't played Animal Crossing (yet...), but I know that the music is good. Thanks for the comment!
