Small print: I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of my pitching, and apologise in advance for any errors.

For Heroins, since he asked so nicely for a Don McLean thread.
Don McLean is a solo singer with a clean, clear voice and a substantial discography including at least 20 studio albums. So far, I've (half-arsedly) notewatched American Pie and not much else.

Can someone help me with the low notes in Building My Body?

2:43 ("rapport") and 3:35 ("inside") - I think they're about F2 or F#2?

Falsetto B4 at 3:14, and a sustained E2 at the end. The key is actually a semitone higher than the original studio version but he sounds more baritonish nowadays.
Do you think it's worth keeping the blue in this thread?
