Hi there Smoke on the water singers !

Kris
Muris
Luciana
Maria
David
Jerry

We have 6 original signups plus Nemanja - 6 would have worked great, 7 is a little more awkward smile.gif

So this is how I would like to do it - I want to split each verse between 2 people. The first person sings the first 4 lines, the second person sings the last 4 lines. Then, they harmonize for the chorus. I'll pick the pairs, but let you decide in this thread who goes first, and who sings the harmony in the chorus and who sings the tune. For the harmonized chorus, whoever sings the lead can send me that part along with the verse part they are doind.

The person doing the harmony in the chorus will need to wait until that is done to sing the harmony on top - I'll collect the first recordings and make new backings with the main vocal in for the harmony singers if that will help, or if you like you can work it out between you - let me know what you prefer!

I am using this link for lyrics:

http://www.lyricsfreak.com/d/deep+purple/s...r_20038742.html

So, my picks are:

Verse 1 : Kris/Muris

Verse 2 : Luciana/Maria (I think it will sound amazing to have the ladies singing together!)

Verse 3 : David/Jerry

Nemanja - can you perhaps think of something to do towards the end of the song? Maybe a really crazy version of the 1st verse that we can slip in in parts around the guitar solos perhaps? I'm thinking this will be more like a vocal solo than singing of the song - or let me know if you have a better idea smile.gif

So, figure out between yourselves the ordering within the verses and let me have your clips - I prefer wav files and I now have an FTP site setup, PM me for details when you have something ready. Also, no effects on the vocal please, not even compression if at all possible!

The backing track I put in the original thread will work fine for the vocals - no need to record them in the correct place, just all record over the first verse.

In addition, I am looking for any additional vocal ideas we can get in here like other harmonies, backing vocal ideas, screams (not growls!) and anything else that you think will contribute smile.gif Luciana, maybe you could improvise something as a backing to one of the solos like you do in some of your lessons?

Awesome Andrew, it's laid out very clear!

Muris - do you have any preferences for which part of verse and chorus 1 you want to sing? (by the way - trading vocal lines with you is going to be waay beyond cool!! laugh.gif laugh.gif )

Here's the idea! biggrin.gif

We all came out to Montreux ---------------- you or me
On the Lake Geneva shoreline ---------------- next one
To make records with a mobile ----------------- etc
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water, --------------- you or me
a fire in the sky, ------------- together
smoke on the water -------------- you or me


So it's like sharing lines in between,
all you(or Andrew) have/has to do is to pick who's gonna start verse and chorus,
then it's just pure exchange. smile.gif

Very clever Muris - this is going to be really cool! biggrin.gif

I'd be happy to start the singing - but if you feel strongly for doing it, that's fine with me as well! smile.gif

One thing - should we make sure both of us get one "Smooooke on the water" - or should the same person do both? (Singing together on "a fire in the sky" is a cool idea by the way!)

The plan is to harmonise that part, but yes it would be cool to swap the lead around on that and have you both sing "a fire in the sky" smile.gif

Who ever starts he's gonna do all high parts in verse, yeah,
perhaps we could double length?

We all came out to Montreux ---------------- You
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile ----------------- Me
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers---------------You
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun-------------Me
Burned the place to the ground


And for chorus,both of us should have one "Smooooke on the water"
but we could also record some harmonizing vocals as Andrew said,
per example if you do first "smoke on the water" I could sing upper 3rd
and you could do the same for me in second part.
A Fire In The Sky would sound nice as doubled. wink.gif

Smoke on the water, --------------- You (I do upper third or whatever)
a fire in the sky, ------------- together
smoke on the water -------------- Me (You do harmonizing)

Sounds ok? smile.gif

Excellent Muris - let's go for this! I hope to get some recording done this weekend.

Also - I am extremely unexperienced at harmonizing with vocals unsure.gif but I will give it my best shot!

This sounds great Andrew! biggrin.gif

Luciana, do you have any ideas or preferences? If it is ok with you I would love to go for the first part of the verse. A suggestion for the chorus would be for us both to sing the lead to give it extra power wink.gif, and it would be awesome if you would like to add some harmonies as well to the chorus.

Suggestion:

Maria (lead and harmonies)
They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Funky claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground


Luciana (lead and harmonies)
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race


Maria and Luciana (lead) + Luciana for harmonies
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

What do you think? smile.gif

You've got it! smile.gif

Maybe just tiny amount of compression during recording,
to avoid peaks etc?

Sure if you need to smile.gif Just keep the ratio as low as possible and that should be fine!

I added some extra things - feel free to use what you wish Andrew! The "A fire at GMC" line would be kind of cool to keep somewhere in the song though..! biggrin.gif But I will let someone else have the final word.

Oh and harmonizing didn't go very well as expected...so I just added octaves unsure.gif unsure.gif let me know if you think that works...

edit - Maria just informed that I was in fact singing a harmony of the chours!! blink.gif I will record a take of the actual lead of the chorus this week.
