I have gotten videos for Alto 1 and Tenor 4 and audio only for Alto 2. I would like to get everything in by Thanksgiving, which is sneaking up on us pretty fast, I put a column in the spreadsheet to indicate which parts have been received.

I worked on mine tonight and I have to say that even at the slower tempo, some of those licks (like the triplet on beat 3) are tough to hit precisely in time. Fortunately I am using Cakewalk and can take multiple shots at it without having to start over.

If you are like me and having a hard time getting through a full take without screwing up, try this. Do a video of your entire part and even if you mess up, don't stop. Then go back and re-record the part you messed up in a separate audio or video. Send them all to me with a note of where the edited part starts and stops and I can mix it all together.

For the 8th or triplets on small beat 3, if you think of them as pick-ups into the next beat or bar they are easier.

If you think of them as an individual beat separated from the following downbeat, the timing will be very difficult.

I signed up as a double on tenor 2. I’m making good progress, but I’m going to take my time. I’ll record early next week.

Just a gentle reminder that Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow. Y'all don't be like my community band and make me harass you to get your videos done. Once you put your mind to it, you can knock it out in a half hour.

Gentle reminder received and noted.

My new microphone arrived yesterday so I‘ve really got no excuse now.

It‘s a Shure MV51 USB/Lightning mic which is just so easy to use. Plug it in to your iPhone, PC or Mac and away you go, you have a large diaphragm condenser directly connected to your device with no need for additional I/O interfaces, preamp or phantom power. First impressions are that it‘s more than enough for my home studio purposes and a noticeable upgrade on the smartphone and camcorder I had tried so far.

The free Shure Motiv App for iPhone/iPad may be useful to others also. It works with Shure USB/Lightning mics and also with the iPhone internal mic. It can capture uncompressed wav and has a nice simple interface including a live meter.

I might have to admit defeat on this. I've been practicing trying to get my tripples fast enough, but I'm nowhere near and they don't sound good. Think I might be a year or two of practice away from this standard.

I was trying to do tennor 5. I hope my double can make enough noise to make up for me and really sorry for dropping out.

It's been really good to push myself and I do think I've got better practicing this, but not better enough.

Let's turn this into a teaching moment. I'd like to show you a technique called "subdivision".

You know the basic pulse of the piece is one bar at 57 to the minute/

Each quarter note is at 57 x 3 or 171 to the minute.

Now divide each quarter into 3 parts (513 to the minute, or roughly 8.5 per second).

Start by setting a metronome (if you don't have one there are apps for a computer or phone) and set it to 57. As it beeps, try to count 3 to the beep: Beep-2-3-Beep-2-3-Beep-2-3. Get comfortable with this pulse.

Now set the metronome to a 3 subdivision. It should do something like Beep-boop-boop-Beep-boop-boop-... just like you were counting.

Now after each beep or boop, put in 2 and 3: Beep-2-3-Boop-2-3-Boop-2-3-Beep-2-3- These are the triplet figure handoffs.

If you are playing one set, pretend you are playing the other two sets at the same time. For example, if you are playing the middle set: 1-2-3-ta-ta-ta-1-2-3.

You may have problems playing at the tempo at first, but keep working on it. You may be surprised. :good:

Thanks Noggin. A teacher once told me that there is nothing that you can't play - only something that you can't play right now. I have a lot of those things I can't play right now, so I keep slogging along.

Also, I got the bass 2 part today. So I still need all the other bass parts and tenor 2, 3, 5, and 6. This weekend would be an excellent chance to get those done instead of running around trying to catch COVID.

Noggin, I can't promise, but maybe I can find time to record audio for trombone 5. In a real trombone section, in a community band say, you often have parts doubled up. So if your video is good and the are just a few sections where your triplets are off, they can fade the "section" audio in. Nothing wrong with working as a team like that.

Harrison is right. It's easy to edit out a few bad spots in the audio. Heck for my community band videos I have had some people who were in the video, but were muted the whole time in the audio. I didn't tell them, though!

I'll try to record something this weekend. I'm very happy to be muted out. There will be several 'bad spots' so I will definitely need someone backing up my part. Thanks everyone for being so kind and helpful.

Ladies, gents, and bass trombone players,


As most of us have nowhere to play these days, I would like to propose that we do a collaborative video with members of this forum. I was thinking of some sort of Christmas bone choir tune. I have actually gotten pretty good at audio and video editing during this time and I am willing to put it all together. What we need is a nice trombone choir arrangement of some sort of Christmas tune and any number of players who want to be part of the project. I would need to cap it at about 20-30 as my computer really starts slowing down when I get more tracks than that.

So, does anyone have suggestions for some music? Something with 8-12 parts would be nice. And I would need either a midi backing track or a recording of a previous performance for people to listen to while doing their video.

So if you are interested in participating, post up and let's get something going.
Count me in!

Raul:

Search back in this thread for a signup spreadsheet and the parts. If you want to use your Duo Gravis, check out Bass 1 or Bass 2 (the higher bass parts). Mike can take two players to a part, and most parts seem to have only one player (and many of us -- including me -- have yet to submit).

Should be fun.

Noggin, are you using alternate slide positions for the triplets? The Bflat - F - Dflat can be 5-4-5, and the F-C-A can be 4-3-3. That helped me get my tempo up a little (plus Harrison's suggestion about thinking of it as a pickup). Not sure I'll pull it off successfully, but it's a shot.

Bb-F-Db is short 5 / 6 /5

Lower F-C-Ab can be 6-6-3 or 6-6-T5 (just a little in from 6).

You could also play F-C-Ab T1-T1-3 with a little adjustment. That's what I've been doing.

Sorry :idk: Ugly Christmas sweater is not that popular in Germany! And yes, my performance certainly was not too entertaining visually - but I tried to have a very tromboney background :good:

I've spent the evening recording and I recorded the first half with the tripples knocked out. It's not great and I don't have a christmas jumper, so I put up some lights.

Thanks for the tips on alternate positions. With more time and practice think I could get it.

Recording yourself is a real eye opener. I need to work on the smoothness of my long notes too. Feel free to knock my volume right down.

There's no way I'd be comfortable playing that part live, as ossia'ed (mostly the high Bb, but you can hear a bit of a chip double tonguing the Fs too :eek: ). But it was a joy to record. Thanks again for the arrangement, no matter what comes from this collaboration. I hope we get it though!

      I think updating the original post with instructions would be really good. Short and concise. For example, I've recorded my part (bass 4) but wading through 4 pages of replies to try to figure out what the next step (uploading, etc...) is is difficult.

      Thanks Neo. This is the google drive upload folder. Bruce - maybe you can make a sticky with this link in it so we don't have to keep re-posting.

      Best I can do is edit your original post with this address.

      OK. Post your videos to the address I added to the first post of the Thread.

      Here is a screen shot of what I have so far:

      That's me in the red shirt on the bottom. I bought a green screen background from Amazon so I can have more interesting backgrounds than just the closet door of my office/practice room.

      Mike: Thanks for the extension through the end of the week. I will record and upload tenor 2 on Friday. I’ve got it all pretty smoothed out but I’m still working on a breathing issue between 105 and 113.

      Everyone sounds great. Can’t wait to see the final product!

      If you need to drop a note or cut it off early to get a breath, that's fine. Everything's doubled in that section.

      Note to MStarke - you said you might do bass 2. I got Neo to send me an audio of that part, so I have that one doubled. But I still don't have bass 1 or 3, so if you want to do one of those, feel free.

      Here is a draft of the audio mix so far. Very rough - I haven't messed with levels or reverb yet.

      Tenor 2 audio uploaded, video will be today or tomorrow
      (feel free to edit and mute me, I slightly fluffed a couple of bits - it's a team effort right!)

      I wonder if the audio might need to be nudged to get everyone to line up. The last gliss might be the spot to look at. The triplet sections especially are not lining up.

      I think we all knew it would be a challenge to get the audio lined up with everyone.
