Forty-Six & 2

May 28, 2010 12:19 PM

Recording from my vocal exam at school last Tuesday, of the Tool-song Forty-Six & 2.

I got help from three awesome boys on this, all fantastic musicians. I got a B, so yay! (Getting an A is seriously hard, anyway...)

Fucked up on the bridge, and sang the lyrics in the wrong order. Oh, well. Not my best, but I still rocked out pretty hard! >:)

Haha, I didn't read the description carefully and thought "Wow, that sounds like Tool!" even though I've never heard this song before. Gutsy choice for an exam!

Thanks, to both of you. :)

@peterkins: I know, that drummer is incredibly good. I think he's just 19 or maybe 20, too. Never remember to ask his age, but that's what he looks like... And he got an A on his exam (obviously). He's a complete genius. He accompanied me on another song at the same exam, because the one who was supposed to do it had to go away, and we literally only had to play it once before he knew it.

I like your voice a lot maia - you can go from soft to hard, which is cool. Texture and expression are excellent. Pitching is good - didn't hear any "iffy" bits. Absolutely no offence, but I can't say I care for the song over much (it's a cover - right?) but that's immaterial. Agree with P re the drummer btw. I'd like to hear you singing this but it probably isn't your kind of thing (and perhaps a little underdeveloped harmonically anyway).

@MajorDundee: Thank you for all your kind comments! Yes, it is a cover. Listening to Tess's Lament now... I actually like it a lot, and I'd be happy to try and record some vocals for you if you like; just as soon as I've finished the ones I offered doing for Wolfdog (I'm kind of in the middle of moving AND have two more exams to go, so it might take a couple of weeks before I get that far). Let me know! :)
