A bit of an over-singer.

Just saw the NYT obit & was thinking of post. Really sad, and a bigger figure in music to me than 75% of the people in RIP threads here. (No disrespect intended, just a fact.) Part of one of the key groups of the past 25 years.

The band I play keyboard in has decided to take on Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer". All well and good----nothing like a decent skullcruncher to keep your audience on their toes----but there's the matter of that Fairlight shakuhachi arpeggio. Apart from the business of getting a sound to approximate it, there are the notes to consider. One website claimed that "it's just 5 different tones required, we play it in Eb major, it goes like this Ab-Db-Eb-Eb(8va) --- Ab-Gb-Ab-Eb". H'mm.
I'll find a solution, no doubt about that, but I was just wondering if anyone here has anything to say on the subject.

Extremely underrated, and MUCH better live than on disc.

"Sledgehammer" ... Fairlight shakuhachi ... wondering if anyone here has anything to say ...

I don't, but you could ask Andy Ascolese of the Band Geeks.

Thanks a lot, Sjöman. Most interesting! The Band Geeks play it in the original E flat. Our singer can't sing that high so we've had to compromise and play it in C. It's lost a lot of its impact along the way but that's show business...

As it happens, I've managed to sort out the flute flourish. I even coaxed a shakuhachi sound out of my Nord (sheer luck, I suspect).

What do the backing vocals say in Almost Grown?
Logged

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Hi, Ovi. Chuck's "Almost Grown"? It's just nonsense syllables. The "lah-doo-day" bit found its way onto "The Little Girl I Once Knew"...

According to wikipedia, "[t]he background vocals on Berry's recording are by Etta James and Harvey & the New Moonglows, featuring the young Marvin Gaye."

Yeah, thought so. Though they always sounded a bit like "night and day" and I was wondering.

I've been pondering the upper register leap in the background vocals of some sixties songs. Earl-Jean's "I'm Into Something Good" will do as an example (first at 0:23):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5-Sg_JJgQ4

Another occurs just before the tag of the Shangs' "Leader Of The Pack" and a third (if slightly more elaborate) during the tag of The Ronettes' "(The Best Part Of) Breakin' Up"...

Whenever I hear that effect at the end of "At My Window" I find myself thinking "Hey, they're imitating their earlier selves". Maybe that's because of the similar effect in the bridge of "Back In The U.S.S.R."...

Did the BB do it first? Or did it come from the NYGG or doo wop scene?

Just thinking out loud here...
