 Shocked

James,
When Azell heard you couldn't come to the gig , she was very disappointed  Cry
She really wanted to do a duo with you... luckily we have the forum, so everything is possible  Wink

First challenge was to find a song that was done in English and in French and that you both knew.
After some searching the choice became 'Blowing in the wind' from Bob Dylan. This song was done here in France by Richard Antony.

So, if you choose to accept this mission  Shocked Cheesy
The structure of the song (BPM 125):
4 verses
First verse : Azell completely in French
Second verse : You completely in English
Third verse : Azell 1 and 3 phrase and you the middle phrase
Fourth verse : You 1 and 3 phrase and Azell the middle phrase

She did the effort of singing the choruses in English, so you're supposed to sing with here as a duo  Smiley

Please record your voice as dry as possible, there is no reverb on Azells voice, I want to apply the same reverb on both your voices to get you both in the same room.

So James, you have a mission, don't disappoint the lady  Grin

 Cheesy
I'm certainly up for the challenge, mon ami ..... Undecided
.....however, there is no way I can sing it in that key.
As my vocal range is so limited I'm afraid that (I just tried it out in various pitches) the best I can do would be in F, or at a push possibly E.   Roll Eyes

Sorry !
Let me know if either would work.

 Coolup for the challenge

 Cool
I shall look forward to it .....
but  Huh

The only versions I can find lyrics for have only three verses, not four  Roll Eyes

I know that you French tend to use more words per sentence than we do .... but how do you spin it out to an extra verse  Lips Sealed

 Wink

Here it is James, same song, same construction in F

You are right, I"ve extended it to 4 verses.
The goal is that you both do the full 1 verse, once on french once in Englsih
Then combine verse 2 and 3
Makes a total of 4 verses  Cheesy

 Cool
I just had a quick 'run through' of this .....  a single take, just as a try-out.

Is this what you are looking for?   Lips Sealed

I would like to refine this a bit, and maybe play acoustic guitar backing to add in to it, if that is OK.  Kiss

Lovely gentle arrangement and singing of this classic.

 Grin
Here we go, Kara.

I have taken the liberty of adding an intro 'click' to line things up properly. I have started by putting this click onto the first verse as a marker.

Then I have made an acoustic guitar track.

Then I have four vocal tracks. They are all recorded independently, so don't rely on each other.
I hope that Azell will choose which of these singers she wishes to work with  Roll Eyes
You may decide to chop bits out of different tracks to make up another. That is up to you.  Lips Sealed

This is the first batch.

And, just so the listener does not feel left out, here is a mix using my favourite version .... with no processing other than a very slight EQ.

James,

I've just listened to you mix
Your vocal part sounds very good  Cool
I'll work on the mix tomorrow. Thanks for your parts, getting Azell collaborating here could open new perspectives for other collabs.
