Hey guys! As I said in another thread, I had my girlfriends's sister wedding yesterday. It has been an awesome party! I had a really cool time with family and friends. It has been once of those big parties that you never forget.

My girlfriend and me decided to prepaid a surprise for them. She wrote lyrics and I composed a punk song and invited to many relatives and friends to sing it. One part each other and then a big chorus full of voices.

We also filmed them doing some acting without telling them what we were going to do with the images.

We recorded and filmed everything at home (except the married couple videos).

The lyrics talk about how they met and how we can describe each other in a comic way. The repetitive chorus says, "It's the story of Denice & Juan".

The surprise has been very well received by everybody and the full hall started to applaud in the last chorus. biggrin.gif

Check the video: (I also appear there singing and playing).

Wow! Gabi! Congrats man smile.gif I think that the most outstanding work, aside from all the producing and arranging, was to get everyone to learn their parts and sing in tune! Was it difficult? I think that it would've been funny as hell to film failed takes or so! biggrin.gif Kudos to you amigo! biggrin.gif

The recording process has been so enjoyable. Just a few had sung in the past, the other ones were saying... "no, this is impossible, I can't sing". But then we discovered that everybody had some musical ear, everybody could sing in pitch (or very close to pitch). And everybody get back home happy of knowing this. This is the part that I like more of producing. You have the possibility of get the best of people and then they feel happy about it..

Hehe! This is where I wanted to get to biggrin.gif

Usually, people that don't have anything to do with music, other than maybe listening to it, think that they have no musical ear or talent just because they haven't tried it yet. The worst thing is, that the majority is somehow fooled by the society in thinking that they shouldn't even try 'because it's not possible for them' laugh.gif You sir, are a very clever and talented guy, who managed to get the best out these folks! Good going! biggrin.gif

This was an excellent video/song Gab! I know they appreciate it very much and will cherish it forever. That is the best gift anyone could have given them.

hahaha sincerely not too much. Everybody could sing in pitch with some little issues that I fixed just because we were hurried and they aren't professionals.

I think that it would've been a little too much if you would've edited and 'fixed' the pitches so much smile.gif That happy folks vibe would've probably gone away smile.gif I am curious, how much tweaking happens in a major vocalist's recording? Myles Kennedy for instance...

I think that everything goes through auto tune at that level and in that style just to be sure that it's perfect. Don't you think so?

I totally agree, but I would be curious to hear a raw vocal take from one such as Miles smile.gif I'm curious to hear the actual level of awesomeness and than the edited version biggrin.gif
