Description
This is the very first song I did on GarageBand. I laid down a bass track and a drum, and started humming. I hit the record button and just improvised a song -- didn't have any lyrics or idea of what I was going to sing, so I made up the words and melody as I went along. When I listened to it, I decided to try again. I muted the vocal track and vamped away for a second time. Just for kicks, I listened to the two vocal tracks together and realized that they blended rather nicely for all my fooling around. So I kept them both without changing a thing. Just an exercise in improvisation, really.

Very, I am serious. I've heard professionals who could
never do that. You have a dead-on ear for style and
articulation. I hope I am making sense. It's too early in a
morning :{)

I have to take back the remark implying that you are not a professional, for I
googled you up. However, the style and all the rest is still true. You have an
amazing quality in your voice; I could listen to you just speak, I think (I am
not hitting on you, just trying to prepare ground for convinsing you to invest
in a decent microphone, so we could collaborate on some songs in a future :)

Don't worry, iG, I've never done anything professional when it comes to music
or singing (hence my dependance on loops). Can't play any instruments well
at all. As for a microphone, I actually do have one, from my voice-over days,
but I don't know how to hook it up to the computer, and the pinhole mic is so
convenient. Just sing at the Mac and voila! A song! (This makes me sound so
lazy, but truth is, I'm afraid of doing something wrong and blowing out the
Mac because my mic isn't the right kind or something).

The pinhole setup seems to work fine, however... To insure the consistency of
your sound: never move furniture in the room, tape your chair to the floor in
the exact position where it is right now, and only record between 3 and 4 am,
when the ambient noices are minimal. It would be a shame to compromize
the quality of what we heard so far. :{)
Keep up the good work, it might be more serious than you think :{)

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]
