(arrangement and recording
by “Maverick” – Clifford V.F. Taylor)
Dear Dr. Juliette Singler-Wilson, Ph.D. ,
I said I would prepare to play the song: I SEE FIRE, backing up the teen crew, so here is the MP3 copy of my studio tracks to the song that I am practicing for performance.
I created this Prak-Trak using the same arrangement as found on YouTube, with some instrumentation embellishments to create drive and crescendo dynamics at the end of the song.
This recording is in D (Bm7) per your purchased music score, where as the original key was Db and used a capo on acoustic guitar. This arrangements works well with electric guitar, solo.
I can change my midi Prak-Trak to any key, and tempo. I also can MUTE the vocal melody track that is recorded using a percussive Vibes instrument (which you will find a recording of, below). I can synchronize this song sequence to projected images, projected text (sing along), and video clips.
This song sounds powerful through my band system and with added instruments, live : acoustic guitar, violin, and electric lead guitar, it creates a STRONG powerful instrument backup to the teen crew vocal chorus! I pray we get to perform this song as intended in this arrangement which takes into consideration the use of my sound system for giving a “Real Band” audio experience with added live vocals and other instruments.
So, this is the first backing track for the Teen Crew, and it includes the melody track played by melodic vibes, until the song is learned by the soloist and choir.
This next MP3 recording is the practice track WITHOUT the Vibes playing melody, so COUNT carefully, slowly, in time to the metronome:
This next recording is Ed Sheeran and his original music video:
