The Rose

I'm stuck at home with a cold, so I thought I'd comfort myself with this cheesy old song and learn to sing in harmony using GarageBand.

As a cover, this probably isn't eligible for this month's challenge, but I was thinking ItGetsBetter-y thoughts while singing.

I know the harmony is off in places, and I would be grateful for feedback or tips from people more experienced in self-harmonising. Do you record the lead vocal first? Bass line first? I really have zero clue.

Seat-of-my-pants arrangement, Snowball USB mic and GarageBand. I would like to dedicate this song to Mystery the cat who sat on my lap and purred while I sang.
