Forever featuring Monique

Filed under: Composition — steve @ 5:23 pm

This is a composition using song lyrics “Forever” with vocals by Monique from Vocal Forge. We do not know who Monique is, or who wrote the melody and/or lyrics. Basically what you get with the wave files/Kontakt Instruments is the key [in this case A minor] and the bpm [in this case 140 beats per minute]. Everything else is up to you as the composer: chords, phrasing, instruments, arrangement etc. Makes it a little challenging figuring out chords and phrasing that work with the singing, but it is nice working with some ‘real’ vocals.

This was also an opportunity to try Strum Electric by Applied Acoustic Instruments – in this instance using a virtual Fender Telecaster. Bass was from Independence Pro, while the drums were from JamStix.
