Resource Page for The Wellerman project!
We’re going to remote record/mix a video of us doing The Wellerman, the shanty that went nuts on social media.
- Get comfortable with the song – see the links below.
- Practise it. Against the Click Track, The MIDI generated MP3 and/or Andy’s Vocal.
- Make a video of you playing/singing your part RIGHT THROUGH the track. You will get mixed in and out of the video depending on how it arranges best, if I have a full length track of you, then I have more flexibility, my life gets easier…
- You will need some way of playing the MIDI or Andy’s vocal through headphones so its sound doesn’t appear on your video.
- You will need some other device to record your video on.
- Send your video to Calum in MP4 format please.
