Pharell Williams - Happy

Post  bradphone on Fri May 09, 2014 8:35 pm

On this self recorded track of Happy i payed tribute to Queen in the intro (Harmonies!) and tribute to Chuck Berry in the Guitar Solo whils`t i still tried to give my own swing to the backingtrack as far as groove goes.

Ok, let me say, your voice as always is really great. This however is just murdering a song I love by changing it too much. Range wanking throughout. Your harmonies were nice, unfortunately, they didn't seem to fit the song at all. Also what the fuck is with the Chuck Berry double stop solo at the end? What purpose does it serve?

I thought the Harmonies were pretty cool myself... I wanted to give this cover my own spin...
There isn`t range wanking involved, the harmonies as usual go from high to low and on the chorus i go from chestvoice to headvoice... but that was because i wasn`t sure if my voice would get the whole chorus in falsetto... So i did it like that, it doesn`t really suit the song, but whatever..

The solo, well... i was trying to come up with a simple but effective solo at the end, but the only thing i could improvise was something in the style of the lead vocals, and i thought that that was boring, so i decided to try out a Chuck Berry double stop solo, and i thought it fitted in nicely.
