Band Materials

Everyone

Make sure to refer to the band reductions for our songs when rehearsing.  If one is using a capo, please refer to the “capo key” sheet

Our photo on the site is from last session – we need a new band photo with Gwyneth – – – Do not let me release you next practice without us getting a new photo with our whole band!

Song List:

A thousand Miles – Vanessa Carlton

Linger – The Cranberries

Not Strong Enough – Boygenius

Erin

Refer to the Capo key Band reduction for “Not Strong Enough”

Work on the awkward strum pattern for the song, with special attention to the intro

Also notice how open the acoustic sounds.  To get that sound, try to make sure all the strings are ringing out – it’s really hard to not have any sound “choked”  You are doing really awesome with it already

Gwyneth

Pay particular attention to the harmonies on “Not Strong Enough”  It, like “Linger” is VERY harmony heavy – which I think really make both songs so powerful.

Also, Since we didn’t get to check the key in the band room, please make sure “Linger” is in an appropriate key for you to sing, and let me know if we need to transpose it.

Lainey

Not strong enough has 7 electric guitar tracks.  Your biggest job is to add a “wall of sound”  Make sure we have TONS of reverb and delay.  We’ve given you different parts from all the tracks, but if there is something cool in the track we didn’t include in your part, let us know and we can add that too.  You are covering so many parts with just one guitar.

Madeleine

The chord progressions in this “Not Strong Enough” are very unintuitive.  Please spend some time with the form on this song.  Refer to the Band reduction under “everyone”

In the song, when Keira is doing syncopated snare patterns, the bass is playing whole notes, and when her snare is straight the bass playing straight 8ths.  With our instrumentation, it may be better to have you playing driving 8th notes anytime we need to build momentum.  When you were doing that at rehearsal, it was SUPER powerful – great instincts!

Keira

“Not strong enough” has an incredibly large dynamic range.  Once again we are going to rely heavily on you to keep this song from being monotonous.  Note toward the end of the song, you will have to lay in to that snare with a ton of weight to get us to the songs apex.

The snare on not strong enough has very different weights.  It is super important in this song – it creates the pulse and momentum.

Maya

“Not strong enough” is such an awesome song, and has a really powerful vocal diversity toward the end of the song.   I think you will totally crush those high energy moments if you go for them with conviction!!!

Start listening ahead at “Linger”  It is a SUPER harmony heavy song, and sounds hauntingly powerful with those harms.
