Apart from a few harsh notes at 1:06, 1:46, and 2:00, I love it just the way it is. Straight out of a 1930’s detective movie.
Hey Udo. I have another suggestion. If you posted another heavily watermarked WAV version to Soundcloud without the lead and made it downloadable, then any aspiring singers could download it to their DAW and put up a vocal track. If that turns out ok, they could put the result up on Soundcloud for you to hear and let you know. If you liked what you heard, you could ask them to send you just the vocal track for further processing. Lyrics would need to be posted somewhere.
I’m no Bing Crosby, but I would probably have a go under those circumstances. If the result is embarassing, then you would never know.If none of this works out, you still have your instrumental track which I’m sure would sell.
This is a second version as I did one last christmas. This one is reharmonized.
Yes. I had a file approved 3 hours ago and it is already 25th on the New items – Music tab on the home page. However, it doesn’t appear on the All Categories home page default screen as these are still showing yesterday’s approvals.
I guess purchasers have to know to click on the Music tab on the home page rather than rely on the default All Categories if I’m to get my 4 hours of exposure.
What a great sound. I’d suggest you finish it as an instrumental version to catch the christmas wave this year and then you have a whole year to get vocals down.
How about you post a preview on soundcloud with a piano lead line overdub and the first verse lyric so we have a better idea of what’s involved.
