Please read ALL of the instructions, even if you’ve done this every single time. There are always a few little changes

1. Watch and listen to the guide vocals video on one device. I suggest you watch on a computer or a tablet. The new video contains the music and a small Picture-in-picture window of me directing. The bigger the screen, the easier it will be for you to see. This time, I enlarged the music and even made it scroll to make it even bigger and easier to read.

2. Let’s plan to have all videos submitted by Wednesday, March 31st at midnight. That is just under 2 weeks and includes 2 weekends. Please do a recorded video EVEN IF YOU PLAN TO SING IN PERSON ON EASTER.

3. Make sure you use a set of headphone or ear buds to listen to the guide vocals. I suggest you put them in only ONE ear so you can hear yourself sing with the vocals

4. Record yourself using an iPhone or Android phone device in the PORTRAIT orientation (up and down). If you do not have such a device, you can use a tablet or computer to record. If you need help recording using a computer, I have instructions for that as well.

5. After recording each individual video, try sending it via iMessages to my cell phone at 865-201-7404.  Chances are, this will work.  Your phone will either send it directly to me or it will upload it to iCloud and then send it to me.  The phone should do it automatically.  

6. Don’t delete your video until you hear from me that I received it in a high enough quality to use.

7.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, following my conducting directions and the click track so we all cut off together. This is CRITICAL for cutoffs.

8.  For those of you who have a problem sending me your video via iMessages or if you have an Android phone or tablet, you can submit via Dropbox using the instructions below the Guide Vocals.  If you have any issues, call or text me at 865-201-7404.


Guide Vocal Videos

Be sure to click on the FILL SCREEN icon to maximize the size of the video on your screen without causing part of the image to be cut off. If you’re watching the guide vocals on a tablet, this time you will want to hold the tablet in the landscape (horizontal) configuration.

If you think singing with all four parts is easier, you can use this guide vocal as an alternative. Instrumentalists and the vocal solo should use this copy. It has the full introduction.
