If you're gonna make a new thread, can you at least get rid of the yelped "B5" from "Born in the USA"? Rolling Eyes

What's the B7 like? Didn't someone in the last thread say it was inhaled?

I never heard it, but chances are this thread will be given an overhaul anyway.

Few more pointers:

- Sustained G5s in "Born in the USA" demo
- "Boom Boom" live actually has some G5s in it too
- Great sustained A5 in "I'm a Rocker"

Probably could start the high notes at G4 too. That's generally where he starts to get a lot of chesty power.

Can I just get rid of that B6/B7 whatever it is? Is it really a good reflection of his range?

B6 with overtones. I like it, personally.

F♯6 or an F♯5? Wicked note, either way.

That's actually a surprisingly decent and sustained find (considering it's an italic note.) Good job! Thumb up

Yo this was definitely an F♯5. Shouldn't be italicized either.

His Slane gig from the 80s has some incredible 6th octave singing. I'm overhauling this thread next.

Whats this highest note in the Hammersmith "Lost In The Flood?" At 5:19 Some dude in the comments claims it's an E6, but I know that can't be right. I am hearing it as upper 5th though. He shot for a similar note the night before in Amsterdam (and a lot during the 70's)

Also, I'm pretty sure the F2 in "Rosalita" is Clarence Clemmons.

Bruce has loads of upper fourth octave notes exploding out of him here. Tons of G4-A4-B4's throughout.

I love how the italicized 'B7' is actually a B♭6 that should probably not be italiziced and people didn't really give a fuck lol
