Lyrics & Chords
I attempted a great song sung by the legend TMS…I am actually singing this song after a very long time…yes a song which is so close to so many hearts!!
I need to confess few things here….first, I searched for a K track but in vain…I managed to get one in youtube…which was muffled and only 1/3rd of the song was available….that too they have taken the original score of bgm and backed it up with beats in tabla and chords…. unfortunately they did not maintain the uniform speed….I managed to cut and paste the track to get the song to some extent….since I am not a techie…my cut and paste was also so amateurish that it added complications to already troubled timings in beats….could record only pallavi and 2 charanams (actual song has 3 charanams normally seen in movie clips)
One thing I learnt long ago and more so with this song for sure …the more you grow in singing the more you get to learn how great the legends are….this song, actually a simple one while listening, with not much of complications….but I realized the way TMS has rendered it with so much ease….beautiful expressions and absolutely apt for the situations and the actor who portrays it…is something phenomenal which is almost something that cannot be replicated ….
However , here is my very very humble attempt on this legendary song by the legend…hat off to him (TMS) and I prostrate before him for what he is !!
Another thing which I want to share is, I tried my hand on Audacity…….It is single stretch recording….normally I do 3 to 4 attempts…this time it went upto 8 and I chose which is “sahikable” or somewhat bearable…of course could have been better If I had done some cut and paste or punching etc etc…which as of now is latin and greek for me as far as its execution is concerned… nevertheless tried to play around with bit on amplification….echo and compressor….could not figure out the right metrics but somehow hit upon some measures to make it sound little better……I will appreciate If someone can give some broad guidelines w.r.t. what is the right measure i should keep for compression, attack, ratio etc… which I learnt browsing that they are important for the right kind of mixing…as suggested by my friend , I have not used “mix and render” ….instead directly exported to the wav and mp3 format…Some where i started to get a feel that I am getting to learn something…will definitely improve in the days ahead with more of my experimentation and for sure with your guidance If i get….
Even now I suggest you may use headphone for clarity…will try and do better in future….thank you…:)
