Can I get a bunch of you to sing the We Will Rock You chorus

Postby Evdog » 22 Jan 2015 02:35

Exactly what the title says. :P I'm doing a Maud themed "We Will Rock You" ponification, and would really appreciate getting as many bronies as I can to sing the chorus. All of you will be credited in the resulting video's description with your name, and (if you have one) a link to your channel, page, etc..

Tempo: 81.5 BPM
Key: E
Deadline: February 5th

Here's a beat for you to sing along to: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/777 ... 20beat.mp3

And here's a link to the original, so you can get the key right (or if somehow, you've never heard the song): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iikKzQwgBJc

Also, if there's anyone here interested in replicating that ending guitar solo, I'm open for that too :D

Not sure if I'll have the time, but here's an additional suggestion for everyone who does record the chorus: also record a whispered version. If you mix a whispered vocal track under a sung one, it can give it a bigger crowd feel. I learned this from Brendan Small in this video:

Hmm...I had to learn the guitar solo for my senior year of high school, for Spirit Day. Been a little while, but I could probably do it again.It wasn't too crazy, if I remember correctly :D

I'd be willing to do the chorus, the instrumental is nothing but silence tho.

I also know the solo and could do it for you too, but Andante has priority :3 Consider me a reserve option haha

I'm hoping to have this track 100% finished before PonyCon Australia, on the 21st and 22nd of Feb. I need time to mix it, and do other tracks I'm working on, so I'll set the deadline to Feb 5th.

I'll edit the original post to have that deadline, while I'm thinking about it.

I got a new SE Electronics X1 at 'school', so I'll see if I can find some time to record for you :) I'll also make sure to apply Citric's advice haha.

On Citric's advice, I provided a "chant", a "whisper", and a "yell" for you :D


Also, my lead is a little rusty, so my playing isn't quiiiiiite up to snuff. The solo I've included is my best take after about twenty or thirty minutes of trying. If Jokeblue wants to take a swing at it, I won't be offended at all xD Also, the amp modeling was done via AmpliTube. I dunno if the tone is quite what you wanted, but I tried to do something close to the original. If you want it changed, lemme know [or I can upload the clean signal, either is doable].

No disrespect taken, Joke :D I've never been super confident in my lead playing as it was. *shrugs*

Most of what I learned about playing, I learned from being in my high school jazz band, so rhythm was more of a priority for me. Not that I -can't- play lead parts, but being self taught and focusing on other aspects, I lack an awful lot of technical skill OuO

Thank you, everyone who participated. I'm still working on verse 3, but I will drop a prerelease here before it goes public.
