Hello chaps and chappesses.....

Right, I had a LOT of fun doing my small bit for the covers comp last year and I'd like to be a part of it again this year.

I know there are a lot of talented musicians on the site who would want to enter, but maybe aren't sure about the singing side.

So.... I'd like to offer up my services....
If there's anyone who has done or is doing a track but knows their singing is a bit off and would like me to record some vocals for them, or even backing vox.... give me a shout.

I can't guarantee that they will be perfect, but they should be sort of in tune! LOL biglaugh

I sound a bit like this.... www.myspace.com/trackfivecovers or have a look at MOTW in last years comp.

laugh

Wow Helen did not know that was you, are you going to do the full song this year?

I hope somebody takes you up on your offer, will you be backing Midge tonight in Crewe?

I recorded the Midge vocal last year (badly, LOL!) but we literally ran out of time to add it to the track. Being a talentless sort of person who doesn't play any instruments any more, Jesper my partner in crime had to do EVERYTHING including laying down and mixing the track (as well as playing all the instruments). As to whether the full track was ever completed is down to him really, I wouldn't really know where to start or how to add them! bemused biglaugh

I hope somebody takes you up on your offer, will you be backing Midge tonight in Crewe?
ROFLMAO! excited

Thanks for your kind comments MOTW, it's appreciated! smile

Hi Laurita,
I'm not sure if you mean the song or the offer (I keep changing my mind each time I read it)

If you mean the song.... thankyou very much, you're very kind! smile We did it for a bit of a laugh really, but it was fun hearing the result and I'd like to do it again.

If you mean the offer of vocals.... my email is enabled, drop me a line! wink

Hi Helen,
sorry my "Italianised" English fails me at times smile
I meant the song, of course, and your vocals...
You obviously haven't heard me singing, you'd have no doubt! roflmao

Laurita,
Your English is perfect.... it was my reading and interpretation of what you had written that was flawed wink

It made perfect sense whichever way it was read. Thanks for the compliment, it's appreciated! laugh

Ah well, no such luck this year.
Maybe I'll be a wee bit more organised for next time and submit an entry next year!

Looking forward to hearing this years' entries laugh
