Hey guys
As you know i write alot of lyrics and play alot of acoustic and heavier songs (weird mix i know), anyway, i've been recording some basic tracks, just one guitar part atm (will have two tracks some ie acoustic and eletrics guitars) but i as of yet have no singer and i need one, so i was wondering if anyone would be willing to sing on the tracks?? I'll send you the finished guitar tracks along with originals, lyrics and how i want them to be sung over the tracking (me singing, so it will be bad lol!) anyway, if anyone, guy or girl wants to do it, it would be awesome :D

its only gonna be 4 or 5 tracks so if anyone wants to do one and not anymore thats fine :) but if i get a singer for all of them then i may not use u or use u as backing vocals :)

the track listing is:

Sleeping Sickness-City And Colour http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xiq0IiGilXE
Pressure (acoustic)-Paramore http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3zvt40ADl8
Machines-Biffy Clyro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kv_ykdPfBM4
Swing Life Away-Rise Against http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7mZkt4bP5I

I know that atm its all covers and once i've got a definte singer (that i know irl) theres gonna be our own songs on there but as i don't have one atm its all covers

anyway, i hope someone can help :)

(also will post it up on here :))

    may give it a go :) Would just need to find some form of recording device
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    don't worry about recording quality to much, i'm just using my old headset mic inside my acoustic guitar so it doesn't sound full on studio quality, and anyway i want this EP to sound stripped back so theres only going to be very few tracks and if there are drums on it there will only be kit, hat and snare at max :)

    I can't sing for toffee, but would love to hear the finished product. would you be putting the audio online?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    yep, course, i'll put a link up on here

    After listening to a couple of those songs, I like them, but I don't know them, at all, and it would be difficult to learn them and put 100% into giving you an audio when I'm not confident with the lyrics to a song I've only just heard.

    If you want I can give you an audio to a different song, if not, I shall just say good luck :)

    ah fair enough, i havn't got round to the final guitar recordings yet though so yeah...lol
    any songs ur willing to try?? I'll hvea listen to them

    Cold Desert by Kings of Leon. Quite easy for guitar too (I play myself ;p). Any KOL song really if not that one.

    good ol' Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright's version

    Somebody to love - Queen

    Diary of Jane and/or So Cold - Breaking Benjamin


    Have a look and let me know :)

    think you should record it :yes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I need to get a new software that lets me export to mp3 without needing another external source to do so. Grrr. Working on it now, sorry CB it's taking a while.

    nah don't worry, i'm using a programme called mixcraft, same as audacity just slightly better and easier to edit the tracks :)
