    good choice

    This is one of my Wifes' old favorites. It's a very nice old ballad.

    I hope you post something featuring her (Colleen, right?) vocals, Howie. Who recorded her favorite vocal version?

    Colleen

    Hello M-ster,

    Actually, Colleen temporarily lost her ability to sing a couple of years ago but she is almost fully recovered from her illness and would like to sing "The Man I Love" as part of the August forum submittal. Her favorite version was a Sarah Vaughan version.
    My new Focusrite 2i4 (2nd Gen) unit should be here today or tomorrow and my home recording system should be up and running very soon.

    I liked the Etta James recording, from what I've checked out so far. Blues-ish.

    Good luck with the new system!

    Well, here we go. Thought I'd do the slow one first.

    after struggling with the title a little :-)




    (edit) It's not quite as good as I wanted it to be but...

    This is considerably faster, although I'm not sure it doesn't lose something in the translation.

    Mine is an exercise in noodling, and searching. Just trying to play some motifs through the changes, etc. I don't think I'm going to do a "real" version this time around...

    fuzz -

    Great noodling

  14. #14
    I've done it slow and fast so this is medium :-)



    (Sorry, I think the lead's a bit out of tune)

  21. Your intro/theme would work also in strict time. Could you do it? I mean, I'd love it, download and everything.

    That was great, M-ster, I did like that. Of course, you do proper jazz. My stuff's just adapted folk or something :-)

    Didn't anybody like that singer at the start of the video? Good verson. And it just happened to be there completely by chance when I turned it on. Amazing.

    BTW, the Scarlett 2i4 is great, much better than my previous interface and I am able to record now!

    Two definite vocals and the "master" weaving his magic through some interesting methods of key changes !

    My version of "The Man I Love"

    This is my first time to use my new Home Recording Studio. This is my attempt to make a bluesey version of "The Man I Love". I put it in the key of F with three choruses, an 8 bar intro and a simple ending. The backing track was made with Real Tracks from Band In A Box. I'm working on a version in Ab for my wife to sing.

    best wishes,
    wiz (Howie)
