Day 224(16 days late): Lucky DUET WITH MASON!!

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

For this post, I collaborated once again with my friend, Mason! If you remember, way back for day 100, we did Come On Get Higher as a duet! Since then, we’ve been wanting to do something together again, but just couldn’t get together to do that until now! Today we recorded Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat’s Lucky!

We actually have been practicing this for quite awhile with the sheet music I found and wrote out the parts to in garage band, but today was the first time we were able to do it together! So we started by recording both parts at the same time while listening to the song, then we recorded Mason playing the guitar and me playing ukulele! The ukulele added a nice element of fun, and I was excited to try playing it for the first time since I got my cast off! (I’m wearing a brace now for at least the next 6 weeks, but it’s much less cumbersome than the cast!) So, here’s our recording!

We had sooooo much fun doing this! We talked about a bunch of other songs we could do, possibly even some more elaborate with drum parts and everything!! And another friend of ours is interested in doing some stuff, so look out for some more great collaboration in the future!!

Day 100!: Come On Get Higher DUET WITH MASON!

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

I’VE REACHED DAY 100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Sorry about that… I’m just so excited!! Starting tomorrow, I’ll get to add a new Category to my posts of Days 101-200! Anyways, for today’s post, I had a very special collaboration with my friend Mason that has been in the works for awhile! Mason saw my version of More Than Words from Day 80 on my facebook and commented that he loved that song and would record it himself if he could sing that high! And I said, “Mason! Let’s do a duet!” And then he told me he could play guitar, so I got extra excited!! We’ve been talking back and forth about this a lot since then, coming up with songs and what-not, but we’ve been unable to find a time to get together! I originally thought that I wanted to have a duet of ours be my 100th post, but we had already given in to the thought that it wouldn’t happen in time. But then, by chance, we happened to both be available tonight, so we did it!!! So! For the song we did Matt Nathanson’s Come On Get Higher! It had a fairly simple guitar part that Mason had already been working on, and good harmony in the chorus! It was a tad low for me, so my voice is a little rough, but I think Mason sounds amazing!!

Come On Get Higher

We had sooooo much fooling around today and we have many, many more duets in the works! I expect Mason to be a frequent contributer to the blog now. :) (He even has a ukulele!!) Thanks for helping me celebrate 100 days, Mason!

And thanks to all of you, my friends, family, and some people I don’t know who follow my project! Without your support and encouragement, I couldn’t have made it this far and I think you all will help me make it to my year goal! I’m still always open for ideas of any kind, no matter how silly or strange! Your ideas are what keep this project interesting!

Keep up with me on this crazy ride!
