Day 261: Day By Day

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

Of the many amazing gifts I got this Christmas (including a ticket to a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert!!!!!OMFG!!) the one I got from my dad and stepmom was an iPad! While only a 1st generation, it’s still pretty freaking awesome and a good supplement to my jacked up laptop! I’m so looking forward to being able to take notes on this bad boy this semester! Anyways, I also got an iTunes gift card from a family friend, so I put that to good use and bought the GarageBand app for iPad! I have to tell you…. It’s pretty amazing! I would bet that I’ll use this more than GB on my laptop! Totally worth 5 bucks!

Anyways, I decided to do a quick recording to see what I could do! I recently bought a couple of song books at my favorite used books, music and movie store, McKays, one of which is an old school Broadway show tunes book. I decided that I would do Day By Day from Godspell using GarageBand for iPad!

I started out with the guitar chords using the auto play setting, then added drums with the smart drums tool (which may just be my favorite thing about this app!), then recorded myself singing over top!

Day By Day

My voice isn’t very strong right now because the stitches from surgery make it hard to breathe very deep, but I’m happy with this first experiment with this app!

It feels good to be back to this project!

Day 193(11(!!!!) Days late): By My Side

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

Finally broke down and figured out exactly how many days behind I am behind and came up with an astonishing 11 days!!! That is kind of insane… but it happens. All I can say is, I will try catch up ASAP!

For this post I decided to do an acapella version of By My Side from the musical¬†Godspell. One of the summers I went to Camp Henry, I went to the first Drama Camp they had, and we did a few songs from Godspell. Two of the camp councilors performed this song and I’ve been in love with it ever since! So I found some sheet music for it and recorded the melody. Unfortunately, the music I had didn’t have the melody, so I just sort of made it up as a went… See for yourself how that tuned out!

By My Side

One more post coming later tonight!
