Backstory: I'm a bass vocalist. I've sang in the choirs/assorted vocal groups at 5-6 different churches over about 20 years. I've had some formal vocal training. Enough to be dangerous. Not enough to be a serious soloist. I quit singing and playing regularly at many years ago. ========== I was cleaning up my MP3 collection the other day, looking for my rather small collection of Christmas music. There's a version of Michael W. Smith's/Amy Grant's song, "No Eye Had Seen," that one of the various choirs I was in did. I've always fooled around with the male vocal part on that because a) I'm a bass singing tenor 1, which is always amusing, and b) it's just a really nice tune. I've never hit the highest part of the solo, though. I've always had to go falsetto and that sounds ... false. So. Loaded it up on my iPhone. Drove to pick up one of my kids from school and sang along. And nailed it. Maybe not exactly in tune, maybe not ready to do it in front of an audience, and I did see spots in my eyes. But, I hit it. It's a freakin' according to sheetmusicplus (page 6). Also, you might be able to hear the bass line in the last measure. Those are three 8vb , IIRC. I also nailed that -- although low has never been a problem for me. I'm sure that other folks out there have similar stories. That Rascher Intermezzi with the 5 double flats in the key signature and you finally got it down at 120bpm? How about that crazy solo that you've been working on for months and didn't quite nail it until you were on stage? Do tell.
