I decided to add quite a few things to the song although I decided to let Silly Girl get the main guitar part because she seemed really eager to play it.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=14SMNiiW7b_Oa5bxn7TcRsZa8HFSkRyWb

This may seem crazy coming from a guy who shows a strong interest in minor details in Beatles songs like what guitar model was used but I think that adding some creativity and putting parts that weren't there on the original version made this project more enjoyable so I added.

Acoustic guitar doubling the bass for the 1st verse and chorus

Harmonica during the intro

Cowbell

Harmonized lead after 1st chorus

Guitar solo

Tapping outro

Rhythm guitar for final chorus

Acoustic guitar intro

Hopefully when we're done with this we can move over to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and do that song like we did this one.

I’m excited to get back home for Thanksgiving. I can record a piano overdub.

Um, @Dark Overlord: we need the audacity project, not the 'flattened' wav file, because we need to be able to access the multitracks throughout recording.

In the meantime, I added a backing vocal:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Fm7_qzIUJAEwfx0B9vLg36uXfTSI7UHK/view?usp=sharing

Sorry about that I forgot. Here's the version with the multitracks although I removed the electric guitar during the ending because I thought it didn't fit.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mNKnELau_T2X7c_RqyCQvj0OUaUX9Co6

And I thought that we could also record Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band together so I recorded all 3 guitar parts.

Sorry to be a pain again, but you need to zip the folder that has the friends.aup file and friends_data folder, because the aup file is coding for audacity to know how to unpack the folder.

So you'd zip the folder called 'friends', which has the aup file and the data folder inside it.

Yeah I'd really love a real piano or two (I suspect its more than one on the original, it sounds like it has a very slow phase or chorus on it witch may just be ADT) than my softsynth piano. Hopefully you can get a bit of the room (but not too much!), that always helps.

Actually, everyone: I'm going to rebase the project on @The Hole Got Fixed 's file, and it's getting quite big, so from now on, record your bits along with it, then save a new project with just your bits left in, delete the other tracks and then save that as a compressed project, I can put them all together and that way we can save time and a lot of downloading 😀 

@The Hole Got Fixed I really appreciated your help on the backing and rebasing the project, its actually quite close to a temp mix i made from mine. The last bit of backing vocals got a bit weirdly out of tune so I've made an executive decision and toned it down 😀 There's another harmony in the 2nd "do you need anybody" that we need, I'm going to put a guide kazoo line in to show everyone because I literally can't sing it in anything but quavery falsetto.

TODO: we need a bit of billy shears vocal and more importantly, we need tambourine in the 2nd and last choruses! And of course the guitars.

No worries! 

Also, who's going to mix it? Will more than one person mix it? I'm happy to mix/provide an opinion on a mix.

I'm happy to do the mixing, but I'll definitely put temp mixes out there for critique. I've just been adding more guide bits to the mix, I'll have a temp mix up for you to check out and give feedback today. What I'm going to try is mixing the vocals and instruments separately and then putting the whole thing together, I find mixing vox to be the most challenging thing after mixing for bass.

 

Made a booboo, better version than the first one: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DGoTMCQUTELltGQ0yPcMQowsDi8yARZV/view?usp=sharing I'm calling us General Salt's Whoopie Doodah Band for now.

Is this becoming a Beatles cover?

It definitely needs a tambourine and piano, but I like the mix.

By the way, did you accidentally press one of the drum pads on your keyboard during one of the last chord, @ewe2? It sounds like a synthesised kick drum. 

 

Yes Starr Shine?, 'tis a Beatles cover. Do you want to join us in sharing love (or at least friendship) to the world?

Bit of a derail from the intent of this thread which was to make a single original song. This is more like the Beatles Bible Band which aimed to cover Beatles songs.

I don't really have any musical skills that wouldn't be preformed by those on the project already. I would share the finished project though.

Bands have to practice. We have to figure out a process for doing this before somehow coming up with something original. That means we have to figure out who's good at what, how we can combine efforts. It's seriously vital to getting anything done in the future. The Beatles Bible Band v1 couldn't get Off The Ground because people either didn't know how or didn't want to contribute. This version seems more motivated and prepared to walk before it can run. One step at a time eh 😀

No, you did the drums! I think you accented the last beat, I just played through it.

That makes sense, I did want the first one to be something simple to do and having a base song that everyone knows is easier than an original.

I can edit a video for a song.

When everyone is comfortable with the process maybe we could try some standard form like a 12-bar blues and put our own spin on it? Then it would be original but not too daunting to organize.

Here is a rough mix incorporating some of @Dark Overlord 's additions: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ltE4STgftJA-dqyCF6PefVMvC3IhfUzr

@Dark Overlord,  I couldn't add the harmonica, it was too hard to make it sound good, but I really liked the guitar riffs and as for the cowbell,

I meant under the first 'Yes, I get by With A Little Help From My Friends'. It's underneath 'from my' (the second last time you sing it in the whole song)

Sorry, I can't hear it other than your kick coming out as a little more prominent. I haven't bothered with much compression on the tracks so far, but if it bugs you I can try compressing the drums and toning it down?

Oh wow, no idea how that got there ahdn_paul_01 That's some kind of artifact - could be any number of causes (I use a sequencer inside a VM running windows xp), nothing a bit of click removal doctoring can't fix! I literally couldn't hear it without soloing so you must have pretty sharp ears! I'll have to watch for that.
