My 8-year-old Grand-Neice stepped on a stingray and I wrote a song for her to sing about it.

For this tune I only used BIAB as a songwriting tool to sing and write to a backing track.

The final product was played by me and my buddy (except for the drums) and sung by my grand-neice. We like to play music!

I.B. stands for Imperial Beach, and shuffle is what you do to not get stung my stingrays.

Loved this. Very cute lyric. I think I would be doing the funky chicken if I stepped on anything at the beach. Excellent vocal. Well done

When I first saw the title, I thought the irritable bowel shuffle? crazy

Nice song - catchy tune!

And even at 8 year old, CeCi is 100 times better than me. cry

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

Nigel, Marty, Floyd, Peter, Scott, David, Brad,

Thanks for the listen and kind words, it is very much appreciated.

As a toddler CeCi was often singing, just making words up and singing her melodies... and turning heads. Even then she had really good pitch. Not sure where she got it, her parents don't sing or play music. When this was recorded she hadn't had any training. More recently she has gotten some vocal and piano lessons. And I'm teaching her piano chords for songwriting.

Ray, "Gone?" I'm not sure why you can't see it. All I can say is try again, others are able to see the video.

Cheers,

Frank

Thanks B.D.

I hope she sticks with it. I'll certainly gentle encourage her. At that age... who knows.

Your Grand-Neice has a great voice and control. She is a much better singer than I will ever be.

Keep doing backing tracks for her, even if they are covers. If she continues to want to sing you have a great opportunity to be a huge help.

Her voice and control is outstanding for an eight year old.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.
