Recently I recorded a cover of Aubrey by Bread. I tried to sing with a near-falsetto/head voice tone in order to nail David Gates' feel of the tune. I took note of the following things:
(i) At min 0:40-0:41, the chord was Em/C#, but I sang a D as a harmony on top of the B that was the actual note of the melody, to make it a third. I noted that there was a little bit of tension there because of the presence of the C# in the chord, but was that tension contributing to the overall music in a positive manner, or was it jarring to your ears?
(ii) I also tried to sing the string section.
Hope you all enjoy it and your comments are appreciated!
