I need help. Let's set the scene:
This is the HARM1 and HARM3 of Back in School by Mother Mother. The vocals are now complete, but I'm a bit confused on how to handle the phrase markers. I know that HARM1 phrase markers must include HARM2's tubes, and HARM2's phrase markers must include HARM3's tubes (HARM2 is not shown above, but it's identical to HARM1).
The problem is... slides. All those +'s are messing with me. In previous songs with this problem, I was able to split HARM3's words between different phrases present in HARM1 or just make the phrase markers really long since not much was actually going on. An example of the former is in my still-unpublished Home by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, visible here:
All those bums are safely under the HARM1 umbrella.
What's the best way to handle situations like these?
I could double the phrase lengths of Back in School at that part by having "Back in school back in place back in school back in chains" as one phrase... but that is inconsistent with the rest of the song. Also, that phrase marker overlaps with the HARM3 phrase marker (which I know is unnecessary, but I find it useful for organizational purposes) because I wanted the phrase to end when the actual word terminates.
Also, about hiding lyrics... I've used it once with my release of Black River Killer by Blitzen Trapper. But it acted strange. It seemed to want to hide more than what I marked with $. Does it effect syllables, words, or phrase markers? Or some combination? Or is it just bizarre and bugged on the Wii? lolz
