Don’t kill yourself. Just don’t do it! Someone, somewhere out there loves you, and that person is selfishly is tying you to this miserable world with their “feelings.” So what’s a boy to do? If only there were some way to keep yourself from ever being born, no one would ever have to miss you… This…
For those of you who want them, .mp3’s to learn the parts of the “God Only Knows” barbershop quartet in all their synthesized glory. I decided to have the parts played on wind instruments so that repeated notes could be heard clearly.
Hi, have you made those mp3s to each part of "God Only Knows"? I'm trying to get a group of gents together to learn the song and those mp3s would be very helpful. Thanks!
Hello! Unfortunately, I have not gotten around to making the MP3s yet. I’ve been a bit bogged down by school once mid-quarter hit. But the end of the term is near and I should have time to do music things in a couple weeks.
The MP3s will be cheesy, synthesized MIDI sounds. I hope this won’t be a problem as vocal performance is not my forte.
New BioShock Infinite transcriptions in the pipeline.
String players, pianists, vocalists, an instrument that I need to listen more closely to when I’m not drinking it’s not late at night: Suit Up
spoiler: it’s not “The Battle for Columbia I-V”
edit (11/2/13): I was working on “Elizabeth” and “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”. What happened to these? Well, 1) Other people beat me to putting out the transcriptions; 2) School. Though, I have been mulling around with the idea of doing “The Songbird” as an exercise of transcribing aleatoric music.
