Is anyone opposed to doing another interpretation of Little Bird, etc. that has already been covered?  What is the consensus?

Not opposed at all!

Billy, I would love your vocals on the BHITM track, especially for the low parts of "lit all my incense..." and "no calls from..."

Would work for me, although I'm used to doing the higher parts!

I'm not opposed. Especially since we aren't doing exact copies (and this means the Meant For You I spearheaded a couple years ago can be forgotten about for this project. So if anyone wants to tackle that too feel free!).

The stuff involved is way over my head (technically, if not musically) but I support it 100%. Really looking forward to the outcome!

Recorded a quick and very rough demo of 'Be Here In The Mornin' - definitely of the style of my 'Wild Honey' cover and really different from the original tune. I tried to keep the same vocal melody for the most part, but I put in a whole different chorus (with mostly the same lyrics as the original song).

The instrumentation on the final version would be very different; if someone here plays a ukulele I think that would sound great for the verses. I think a timpani on the chorus would sound good - though I'm guessing that'll have to be done via MIDI instruments. Give me your ideas, suggestions, criticisms. I know this is miles away from being perfect so I'm open to any and all suggestions!

May I have all the stems (parts) just to practice mixing?  I want to see what I could do with it.  I really like what you're going for here, and the change in melody is really interesting, and I am sure some of the original harmonies could somehow be incorporated in the background, while keeping your vision.  I'd have to think about that...  My only suggestion for how the song should play out is that I think the playing should reflect the waltz tempo a bit more.  I also have a timpani (midi) vst plug in I could use!  Good work, and best wishes mate!  Thanks for getting the ball rolling.

Damn, but you are a talented dude.   Cool I love how you somehow turned it into a totally different song.  Grin

Thanks so much for the compliments Smiley I promise when the final version comes out with all of us on it it'll be a heck of a lot better.

@ForHerCryingSoul, I will try to upload the different files to dropbox asap - sadly my internet sucks and there are 19 tracks in total (after double tracking each vocal and the guitars) so it'll take a while. That being said, what recording program do you use (and pardon if you've already answered this question, my memory is admittedly dreadful haha? I'm sure I could load up the Logic file to dropbox if you have that program.

I totally agree about getting some of that waltz tempo back - I don't think we'd have to stray too far from what I've done to get that, either. I have a timpani plug in (stock from Logic Pro) but yours may sound better so we can give that a shot. Thanks for listening and I'll get with you via PM about those individual tracks if I can find the time to export them.

I actually use Fruity Loops.  It can take flac files (or wav's if you prefer)!  Dropbox sounds good.  One thing that would make the upload faster is if you put all your stems (parts) into a zip folder and upload it that way.

Thanks, Seagull Merlin! I'm playing this with my capo on the first fret, but I was thinking about doing without the capo, so hopefully that makes the chords on the uke easier to play. I'll send the chords asap.

If you're amenable to vocal percussion rather than actual sticks & trap, I'm interested.
My style is more traditional than hip hop, might fit nice and give a cool twist. Your call...

this is a very rough and I mean very rough idea for be still, I could have gone the organ route but I'm thinking guitar or ukulele. If anyone feels they can lend to this concept I'd love to hear!

I like this take and the general idea you are going for.  For some reason this song reminds me of A Time to Live in Dreams.  Was that written by Kalinch as well?  Anyway, harmonies in the following voices would sound nice.  Whatever I would do, I wouldn't make them too ornate, because we are going for humbleness in these songs, right?  My only criticism of the actual performance is I noticed some bum notes, but as you said, this is a very rough take.  I think you did a great job with it!

Yes for sure there was some bum notes! But yes this was just for a basic idea, I'd love some harmony with me as well but I'll have to get the actual track finished first. And thank you for the kind words!

"ack" was a reaction, not the word "back" lol.  Also I'll try to make a scratch vocal of the track, following your backing track's tempo, because I enjoy the direction this is going in.  I also like the "spooky" background voice!  I think one thing that could help vocals is to double everything.  I'll see what I can do and upload it tomorrow!  Good work!
