Roustabout Jordanaires Harmonies Midi score

Postby JohnSchenker » Fri May 30, 2014 6:05 am

I invite you to the Jordanaires Vocal Harmonies on youtube Challenge.

I wonder if you would kindly take a request. I am an Elvis fan and one of my favourite songs with the jordanaires is Roustabout. Could you please do a video of that song (Including these Jordanaires Harmonies, see below) and post the vocals on youtube?.

I have worked out the harmonies (by ear and using Melodyne).

Play the COMPLETE SCORE of Roustabout Jordanaires Vocal arrangement online and view the score (no need to download):

I have gone a bit crazy on the dynamics:

a) Using the Loudest / Strongest dynamic (FFF) so the volume of the midi is acceptably loud, but also,

b) To compensate for the fact that in the MuseScore programme, the unison can build up and create very loud / unpleasant sounds For the dynamics it is better to Listen to the original track

I have decided to make it even simpler for people to take the challenge and sing create a video with their vocal version of Roustabout (Including these Jordanaires Harmonies). ;)

Below (see the links), each ISOLATED TENOR or BASS part is PANNED TO THE RIGHT and ELVIS part and the GUITAR is PANNED TO THE LEFT, for easier recording directly from the online file.

Just click and listen to each part, learn them, record and mix them, and upload your version on YouTube:

Because of the limit of Links in my post I have to create not one but TWO more posts. The next one will contain the remaining 3 Tenor 4th Tenor 5 Tenor and Bass parts

1st and 2nd Tenors:

I can sing the lowest E (6th open string on a guitar). But the bass singer goes one semitone below Eb and I even discovered a Bb below that in in this song!.
Thank you for sharing your talent!

For working out the harmonies I use:
* Audacity> Audio Editor.
* Elevayta_Extra_Boy_Pro_Demo (Vocal remover plugin for Audacity for removing Elvis' vocals)
* Software to analyse the harmonies (Polyphonic algorithm option in Melodyne) and Melodyne also to convert the 16 bit WAV file into a midi file.

and Finaly... the Bass part!

Bass: https://www.musescore.com/user/201414/scores/191690

Really I do not see the point of limiting 3 links per post

( Why not 10 or at least 8) This is POLYphony we are trying to share!


For the dynamics please listen to the original recording by elvis,

Here is the YouTube version:
