The toastmaster has completed the vocal guide track for the christmas tune....so we are ready for launch.

Everyone on this board that can sing...please sign up by the following method:

PM me with your e-mail address that can receive a 3.3M file.

Sing along with the tune and please use headphones so the guide track does not bleed over into your mic if possible.

E-mail me your vocal only track as unprocessed as possible panned center.

Please sing the entire song along with Van Man. You can sing to pitch, harmonize...whatever.

Let me know if you have any questions....thanks for your support. This will be a Guitars101 first and should turn out very nice as we have a lot of folks that can actually sing around here.:D

I came across this on the net and didnt know if it would help in producing all the tracks.
Lyrics With Performers
(Paul Young)
It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
(Boy George)
And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

(George Michael)
But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard
(Simon LeBon)
But when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
(Sting) And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is
(Bono joins in)
The bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that are ringing
Are clanging chimes of doom
(Bono only) Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you.


(Everyone)
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time.
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

(Paul Young)
Here's to you
raise a glass for everyone
Here's to them
underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Chorus (Everyone)
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again

Well, she just rang me back to say that she's REALLY happy with it !!!

:jam:

So, she's gonna give it another listen to see if she's confident enough for it to go into public circulation, and you may just have another vocal !

Apparently, she's harmonised pretty much all the way through, and she says she comes in a bit too early on the Feed The Worlds...

Damn, I screwed this up for her. I had put the speakers on by accident whilst she was recording, so evertime she's played it back it's recorded the backing track as well. Obviously, she didn't know cuz she had the headphones on too, and thought she was hearing through that !!!

i'M CURRENTLY REINSTALLING SO IF i GET EVERYTHING BACK UP AND (bastard caps lock) running by the weekend, I'll send her track later on...

Sorry for the delay - bloody computers !!!

So hows it coming? Im real interested to hear it. Hopefully my DFH Superior showed up toady and I can play with the drums.
We are getting some in.....I think we have you, bluesplayer, Linda, and Rain so far. I have not really determined how may we need to do the track.....but the more the better.

well you have mine coming in a mo... I did it at 128kbs so it may be a bit rough. plus the cold gave me an interesting michael stipe warble :wtf: but it may be of some use. I have also done some layered harmony stuff, so that may help flesh it out a bit. Sorry for the delay in posting but I really have been feeling pretty shit with the cold mate. I hope it is up to scratch.

You'll have mine once I iron out the problems with my P.C., mate. It is sitting there on one of the hard drives, I just haven't set up my e-mail again yet...

I can send the wife's version if I can coax her into singing once again, otherwise, I'll post the version that I screwed up for her to see if there is anything that you can do ?
