Description
I got the World Jam Pack for my birthday so I've been playing around with it, enjoying all the different instruments and loops. I was fascinated by the African singers and wondered if I could do something like that. So I decided to try.

This piece is very short (under a minute) and all the voices are me. I threw in a zulu drum track in the middle just for fun. I hope you enjoy my experiment (and yes, the words are nonsense since I don't speak the language).

Enjoyed
I thought Joanna that you overlayed the Jam pack, but that is terrific that you did all the singing yourself.
Hope everthing is going for you. I did a new One Bad Dude song and used the Tyler O'Tool name as reference in the song a few times. Hope you don't mind.

Hope your having success with your writing. Great to see you back!

Thanks for sharing your experimentation which really sounds nice !

Yes!
This is a wonderful success, IMHO... you did very nicely coming up with an African Folk Chorus sound. I can instantly imagine listening to (and loving) an extended version of this, with a chorus section that drops the drums and has a wailing lead Joanna singer over the top, then back into the chugging rhythms and rich harmonies. Cool!

Maybe I should try to think up something you CAN'T do :-) No, that would be futile. :-)

Hey, nice photo up there... is he playing a bongo, or is he just happy to see you? (smirk)

Always a joy to hear your versatile voice!
ttfn,
Drakonis

I actually ......
... listened to this one day .. and commented .. and then my old beater of a computer crashed before my comment saved ... so I knew I would be back for another listen and DEFINITELY to comment .... I am lost for words now but WOW WOW WOW Joanna ... I cannot believe you can do all those voices ... I wanna do all those voices .... this is solid in my ears .... gonna listen again before I wrap this comment up here .... first off I am a HUGE fan of voice(s) all singing together .... especially the african and aboriginal choir voices ... and the fact that you pulled this one off earns you my deepest bows (as Fran would say) ...

Hi, I'm Joanna (not Jo, that's someone else). Garageband has allowed me to indulge my love for singing beyond concerts in the shower. My favorite part of songwriting is writing the lyrics. This makes sense, of course, because writing is what I d... [see more]
