This sucks, I’m sorry.
Please don’t play this.
What is the key of your tune? Time Signature? *
What sort of rhythms are used in your song? *
The start is connected notes and then it goes to single notes. After 12 single notes, it goes to a 2 beat note and then connected single notes that then goes to single notes for 6 times. Then another pair of connected notes which then goes back to single notes for 4 more times. A two-beat note with a rest note interrupting and then another two beat note. Two two-beat notes, single note and then a two-beat note. Then back to single notes for 5 times, a half note then a connected note. Single notes come back for 12 times then ends with a two-beat note.
Discuss your note accuracy and rhythm accuracy in regards to your strumming and melodic playing… *
Not good, I had to edit a lot. My melody was off by 10 secs most of the time and my strumming was just a fail. Also because the beat is fast i couldn’t really sing on time so I just talked.
What Ukulele skills have you acquired? *
How to read notes??? Strumming?? Chords???
How did you decide your tempo to match your song and style? Did the context of the song change because of this? *
I chose 90 bpm because oh Susanna is a pretty fast song so it makes it seem happier I guess.
How did you use the editing tools in Garageband? Editing, cutting, flex-time, trimming, plugins… *
Cutting, Trimming, Volume because I needed to cut/trim because of the timing and volume to make it quieter.
The editing is really bad because this is my first time actually using garage ban, also because I just, in general, don’t know how to edit.
Discuss your recording process; did you have any concerns or issues? *
I’m not good at reading notes so I was slow at being able to play. I also recorded things really quickly because I just wanted to get things done with, with the singing I just talked because the song was kinda fast.
This year for music I would like to play the clarinet as my instrument choice for this year. In preparation I have researched a few things I might need to know about the clarinet:
How to clean the mouthpiece:
- remove the mouthpiece and the reed
- undo barrel joints
- wipe off reed
- rinse the mouthpiece
- dry mouthpiece using a swab
- reassemble when all pieces are dry
How to produce clear tones on the clarinet:
- blow enough air through the clarinet to produce a loud sound
- make sure to take in enough of the mouthpiece
- don’t bite hard on the mouthpiece
- clarinet shouldn’t be too close or too far, try out different positions (recommended 45 degrees away)
- reed should be flat against the mouthpiece
The many different parts of a clarinet:
- barrel joint
- upper joint
- lower joint
How to pack away a clarinet:
- unscrew the ligature but not too much only to take out the reed
- wipe the reed off
- place it in its casing
- take the mouthpiece off
- wipe off mouthpiece
- put the ligature back onto the mouthpiece
- place the mouthpiece into the mouthpiece cover
- gently take off the barrel
- wipe off barrel
- put the barrel into the hole that the casing should have
- face bell outwards
- place the thumb on bridge key to keep it up
- gently take it off
- wipe the upper joint through the side with something sticking out
- place the upper joint in the case (make sure keys are facing up)
- gently take the bell off
- clean the lower joint first
- place lower joint in the case (keys should be facing up)
- wipe the bell off
- place bell inside the case
