Author Notes

EDIT Nov 22: fixed minor errors on vocals, harmonies, and bass.
EDIT Feb 14: added preview video! technically it's an OMBFC video (done by the wonderful and talented Lowlander2), but it counts. it is, after all, the best OMBFC ever.

Vocals

-M24.4.5, 61.4.5: Not enough in the notes between "eyes". Carries to HARM1.

-M56.2, 104.2: You have the vocals switch over to what should go in HARM2.

-M64.2: Bad lyric placement on "she's deceiving". Carries to HARM1.

-M66.2: "it's" should be "she". Carries to HARM1.

-M83.4.5: "cause" should be "'cause", notice the apostrophe. Carries to HARM1.

-M101.2.5: "glass-" should be C#. Carries to HARM1.

-M116: Personally, I don't like to put my percussion sections less than a measure before or after a lyric to give the player more room to get the mic from their mouth to their hand.

 

Bass

-M61.1.5: This one seems a bit off to me. I think it should go O on 61.1.5, B on 61.2.5, O on 61.3.5 (each one sustained) and G on 62.1.

-M63.3.5: This sounds more like Y->B->Y than a Y->Y------.

-M116: I don't think the pattern changes here.

 

Well, I'm impressed.

i could do without the sarcasm, but i'll take a look at what you mentioned. for the record, i placed the harmony parts in single-player vox because the harmony is more prominent, as well as to have some more variety.

Wasn't trying to be sarcastic. I've been a lot harsher on this forum. I just thought this was one of the better things I've seen submitted and checked it out because I played with the idea of doing this myself one day. Glad to see it done well.

Ugh. This song. I feel required to keep it for novelty's sake, but that guitar part starts off so boring and then so impossible. At first I wondered why it was rated 3 stars when I was falling asleep. You'll wait until the first chorus to even play a note, then your boredom will continue... and then you'll play this massive solo of evil for the entire ending of the song. The ending of the song is handled well, though, so kudos for the attention to detail on that. Ain't nothin' wrong with the custom itself... just me hating on the guitar part. Maybe it's more fun on bass or keys :)
