Ukulele Song – Love story
How is your recording the same and different compared to the original song? What were your reasons behind your decisions?The difference between my recording with the original song is because my recording was a little slower when I sung it, and it was a little faster when I played the ukulele as background music. Because I didn’t listen to the original song when I was recording. The parts that stayed the same is lyrics and the style of the song. I didn’t change the words from the original song because it is very hard for me to make the lyrics rhyme and also if I change the words from original song I need to make the song and the lyrics connect together. The reason of me make the decision of changing some parts spaces because I want to make it have my own style.
How did your music classes prepare you for this assignment? In the music classes prepare lots of things for my assignment. For example learning to strum, Garageband editing, drum track, time management and independent learning. How do I learn to study independently? Because I still have a lot of things that I don’t know or don’t understand, so I have to learn to think for myself and understand. There are also strum, Garageband editing, drum tracks, time management. This knowledge has helped me a lot in my exams. For example, teach us how to use Garageband to put the accompaniment and singing together and match them on time also add drum track .
Discuss your Ukulele recording. Items to discuss include: timing, note accuracy, rhythm accuracy.
I am good at timing, and I can follow the timing when I am recording. I am not really good at note accuracy, I sometimes play the wrong notes because I accidentally touch the other chord or forgot to press the top of the chord that i am playing. My rhythm accuracy is not too bad, I can follow that most of the time when I was playing. The key of the tune is C and the time signature of this piece is 3/4. The piece comprise or quarter notes and half notes with few 8th notes which made the timing challenging.
Discuss your overall understanding of Garageband and its processes. Items to discuss include: editing, timing, arranging, timing, etc. How has your skill at Garageband impacted your song?
I am not good at the Garageband for the recording. Sometimes I forget how to edit the recording for one part with another part. I can arranging my recording on Garageband and follow what I arranged. Using the Garageband can be very useful as you can edit you recording, timing etc. I used the Garageband to edit my recording and it makes my recording accurate and on time. The Garageband can help my timing with metronome. When you using the Garageband to make a trim between two beat, you just press the command and T. When I was recording I recorded one note at a time so it was easier for me to edit. I used the metronome to listen if I have gotten everything on time.
