Bohemian Rhapsody Collaboration Cover - ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS NOW!!

Post  The Long Shot on Tue Oct 20, 2015 6:45 am

Alright, so here's the thing: while a lot of my posts on here are on threads related to acappella singers, my taste does go beyond that, believe it or not. As my avatar shows, I'm a huge Queen fan as well. And for ages upon ages, I've been wanting to do a legit cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody", but I didn't have the connections or the people to work with. Welp...that has changed. Back in August, a few friends from my personal life and I organized a collaboration of Bohemian Rhapsody, 100% note-for-note. All instruments have been covered (several of them have been recorded already; we've actually been able to obtain a professional-grade recording studio for this), and we have some vocalists lined up as well. So why am I mentioning this to you all?

The answer: I know this board is absolutely packed with Queen fans. As in: you can't post in a thread without running into a Metalhead or a Lurex or a queenfan somewhere. I also know that a fair amount of you are at least capable singers. And while I already have a few vocalists lined up, let me remind you that this is Queen we are talking about: the more the merrier if it helps us achieve that choral sound. So it seems only natural that I would turn to this board to see if any more vocalists could be recruited.

The logistics: I have the entire vocal harmonies for the song transcribed on sheet music; however, if you can't read music, there are ways we can get around that. Basically you'd just be recording your part at home (whatever part you want that fits your range) and then sending it back to me. Once we get everything done on my end (we've been on a sort of sabbatical as of late because of school and work and other shit), we'll incorporate your vocals into the final mix. The only caveat is this: the quality of your recording has to be at least usable. If your mic is completely shitty and hisses and crackles a lot, we likely won't be able to use it.

So yeah. I hope this piques the interest of some of you. If you're interested, just let me know! (And even if no one here is interested, I'll probably post the cover here once we're done with it, so you'd be able to see it regardless.)

Cool idea, it will be tough to pull off though.  You would need to set some requirements for being featured unless you want a huge out of tune mess.  Harmonies require pitch precision and that is something that not a lot of people here will be able to do casually unless they specifically practice their part and really nail it.  Not trying to be pessimistic, I'd like for you to succeed but I have some experience with these kind of online collabs and they take a lot of planning.

Oh, you're absolutely right. If someone pipes up and says, "hey, I wanna do it", I'll want to hear them sing one of the parts to gauge how well they can learn them. If that person is really off key and/or just bad-sounding in general, yeah, I wouldn't accept their submissions. If there is a slight or even moderate amount of variance in their singing, I might still accept them. "Bohemian Rhapsody"'s harmonies have a lot of natural dissonance in them (sometimes as much as a half-step apart), so I don't expect or particularly want all of the collaborators to be hitting the notes perfectly every time.

As for learning parts, yeah, those who want to do it will have to put in a bit of time, but what helps is that I actually did most of my transcribing from a guy on YouTube that dissected the entire song and sings each individual part. So learning parts wouldn't be as difficult as it might be otherwise.



No offense, but I'll also say that anyone from TRP that successfully joins the collab will almost certainly be doing backing/harmony vocals only unless they really blow me out of the water. We have soloists picked out for almost the entire song already and I don't plan on changing them.

That was actually pretty sweet. I've heard you sing before and your voice is pretty solid as long as you don't strain yourself. Please, do join.

FYI: I do actually have a legit soprano friend that will be doing the Bb5, but man, that was good enough where I could see you both doing it.

Can I just do a Bb6 or 7 underneath the Bb5 then  Cheeky. Since screaming and wanking are all that I'm good for, it would seem fitting lol.

Lol. Listening to some of your covers, your clean range actually is pretty decent. For the purposes of this I'd say it would work well.

Good luck Long Shot. Smile I myself would like to audition to help your project along. I will of course be going for the sexiest, most manliest of all roles in the harmony. Tell me what you think. Wink http://picosong.com/6na7/

Yeah, sure. Remember that most of you folks are going to be doing backing vocals exclusively; your clean range works quite well for adding layers to the harmony. (Of course, if you wanted to give me a good B♭6 or 7 to see if it's worth adding, I wouldn't deny you that opportunity. Wink )

Go for it. It's the only lead vocal part that I haven't set in stone. Absolutely worth a shot.
