What's going on with Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes, from day to day...
I've just finished re-recording "It's a boy!", one of my Christmas songs.
"It's a boy!" had the oldest recordings, done back in 2006 on Cubase 5, and although they weren't that bad, the vocal was a bit wobbly, and I need to be able to get hold of 24-bit un-mastered versions, which I couldn't. SO... I had to re-record.
In the meantime, I decided to get rid of the "classic / groovy" distinction (there were two recordings), the new version is both classic, AND groovy (of course).
AND it's gone up a semitone, making Bb the lowest note now - easier for my tenor voice, and the kids I think! AND I've re-done the sheet music too. So a lot of work.
Now, why do I need 24-bit un-mastered versions of the Christmas songs? That's another story - 5 more to go!
I'm working on a redesign of the jukebox. I want it to be easier to use on tablets and mobiles, and clearer overall. I've put an "alpha" version up in a test area - have a look and see what you think: TEST JUKEBOX Beware: lots of bits don't work yet - but you should be able to listen to music and read words!
The YouTube video for "Hush, there's a baby!" has just his 200,000 views!
I know it's not Justin Bieber, but it's still pretty good - see for yourself - and share with your friends:
Went on the website this morning to check the actions for "It's treasure", and... there weren't any!
So - after successfully doing actions with KS1 at school this morning, I've now put them up on the Jukebox - "It's treasure" on the Jukebox
I'm working on a new song about forgiveness.
It started off based on Isaiah 1:18, but I just couldn't get the chorus to work - until I came up with the current chorus. But then Isaiah 1:18 had gone, and Acts 10:43 had got into my head. Not quite as poetic, but great stuff!
This vid is from a quick recording of me + guitar, and the final recording will be quite different - same tune and (almost all the) words (a couple have changed already as I've listened).
EDIT: it's now finished, here's the completed video instead:
