Hey All,

As we're all digging in, working on the perfect cover(s) for this year's competition, I figured I'd see if anyone wants to lend a hand, or more precisely, a voice to my project. Actually, a number of voices.

I'm in the midst of a recover of "All Fall Down" (already did "Dream On") and find that my voice isn't cutting it. So... I was thinking this could be a bit of a group effort.

If anyone's game, I could post a segment of the song—a verse—on something like Soundcloud, which you could download, and sing along with. Sing a line, couplet, an entire verse, but include the "all fall down" part. Send me back your vocal tracks (no effects, as an aiff, mp3, etc.) and I'll splice them into the final mix. The thought is that if I get enough voices, it could sound pretty good, being a community effort and such. Sure, it sounds a bit Band-Aid-ish, but I figured it was worth a shot.

If no one's interested, that's fine; I'll warble along and finish it up later this spring.

Thanks for considering.

Best,

josh

Ha, that's a good idea! I'm game - but have fractured my jaw, so not doing any singing for a couple of weeks. Happy to after that.

One thing - if you'd thought to overlap voices you might have an editing job on your hands because of the different intonations people will use - I contributed to a song in a similar way once, and it took ages to line everything up.

Cheers,
Neil

Yeah, ideally, I was hoping to get a number of people who would be willing to sing entire verses. But I'm game for a bit of sound editing fun, etc.

Any other takers? :-)

Thanks!
