Harmonica Blues

Hi all,

well, I got my BIAB 2018 this weekend!
I took a "Jessies Girl" midi file, and
put it through BIAB using _OOHLA.STY

When I pressed play it did not come out perfect.
So I started deleting chords, where I thought it
was not working out. 65% of the chords were deleted
I was down to 27 bars... which really sounded good.
I looped 3 repetitions.

The night before I put some irregular Ooh's and Ahh's
together. First half as the intro... second half as the bridge
in this song. Hoping to make the song structure more natural.

I guess some Harmonica could be edited out if some vocals are added.
A collab is not out of the question....

It will be fun to Jam with...

Nice work here, LPman! I really enjoyed the use of those Oohs and Aah's here. They perfectly compliment the harmonica. Not to mention, it is wonderfully catchy with an excellent groove. There a lot of charisma in this one for sure. I can imagine it sounding unreal performed in a live setting.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

Hi Deryk - PG Music
I am proud of this one, thank you so much!
I am hoping to take another midi file and
destroying it: in the same way... to find out if
this a valid method to produce musical hooks.

My B61-Day is this month! Thanks to this forum & PG music... It's going to be a great month to remember!

Thanks Ember - PG Music
I am on Smule.com hoping to find some singing talant or a co-writer. I watched Jane Floyd's new movie, on how he writes his songs. This is such a giving forum to be a part of....

Hello, LPman

Ooh's and Ahh's vocals are really nice and effective.
They seem like a little gospel-style.
If they were Motown-like vocals they might sound completely gospely.
Harmonica is also very nice.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hi Shigeki Adachi,

Ya the intro and bridge is very gospel, come to think of it... I wonder if choral harmony is possible? Thanks so much for your comment. Glad you enjoyed it

Thanks Rob4580
I tried the same concept and made a BIAB video.
I just named it LOST DOG.mp4
I placed it in my Tethered 2018 folder below:
I'll tinker a bit with it on the piano...
thanks for posting here cool

The smooth vocals and the raunchy harmonic make for an interesting contrast.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi dcuny,
Ya, I didn't even change anything with regeneration of the harmonica. Normally I make 5 tracks and edited it to one track.... but BIAB did fine on it's own...

Thanks for posting dcuny
