Wouldn't it be great if we could somehow from all corners of the earth add our voices to this and have all of our voices recorded? I've often felt quite moved by lots of voices with all of their shades and tones mingling together.
Jones, that's a wonderful thought...kinda reminds me of one of Pete Seeger's main motivations, that is to get people to sing together and feel their unity and humanity. There was a documentary about him I saw, and what stuck with me most was the wonderful expression of pure joy on that mans face when he had the whole audience signing together....it made my eyes leak!
I wonder if there is a way for us to do this?
I'm pretty low tech, but I'm certain with all the techies out there it could be overdubbed with many layers of other voices...that would be VERY cool!( plus it would drown out my voice
) I found myself singing a harmony line when I was reviewing the recording. I think, at the least, it really needs a feminine harmony for balance. I would be willing to have a friend, who has much higher quality recording equipment than me, make a better base recording in whatever is the best format, that we could then digitally pass around and have people add tracks to it.? I think there may be even better ways to do it that I'm not aware of.
I make music myself and struggle with much of the same sentiments toward the sound of my voice. I think you are right about this approach, but have yet to keep a recording of my voice due to my inability to hear something worthwhile in it.
Keep plugin' away Hithere, and ask for honest criticism from people you trust, it can really help build confidence. I played guitar from the age of 12 to 31 only singing "in the closet" before I got over my shyness and got the courage to play and sing in public. Though I've heard my recorded voice many times, and have gotten used to it, I still don't "like" it.....or maybe I should say "it" don't like it.
