Third Brony Anniversary!


Avohkah Tamer

Oh hey, it's my 3-year anniversary of when I first started watching MLP!

 

Since you guys probably know the drill by now, I'm gonna cut to the chase.

 

As you may have expected, I've recorded another cover. I was looking for a song with a male vocalist from this season to sing, but my only choices were either one of "Weird Al" Yankovic's many songs in Pinkie Pride, or John de Lancie's fantastic "Glass of Water" song as Discord. And honestly, I'm not worthy of even attempting to cover those.

 

So I continued looking for a different song to butcher cover, when I remembered having done these:

"Hm, that idea couldn't possibly be applicable to an MLP song cover--

>Filli Vanilli

>The Ponytones

>Flutterguy song

 

...Oh yeah. I can make this work."

 

So, without further ado, here's my (pitch-shifted) Flutterguy cover of "Find The Music In You"!

 

 

Be sure to let me know what you think!

I gave this a listen. Good work.

 

Part of me thinks I really ought to motivate myself to try covering some songs (both official and fan-created). But another part of me worries that there's not a whole lot of need within the brony community for vocalists who can neither write music or voice act, particularly male vocalists. And since I still live with my family, it's near impossible for me to practice singing or voice acting without somebody interrupting.

Thanks!

 

I know exactly what you mean about the family interruptions. That's actually a big reason I haven't actually recorded any song projects since a year ago. For this song, I was fortunate enough to have access to my office building over the weekend while it was empty, and I recorded it there. Turns out cloth cubicle walls are actually pretty great for eliminating background noise and reverb!

 

My advice: Take advantage of any opportunity when you might be alone for any decent amount of time, such as in a car while driving someplace, and practice. You can also record yourself with a cell phone and play it back to learn where you might need improvement. For voice acting, you can practice imitating other voice actors to learn some techniques, but definitely also practice on your own to improve your own natural acting. Practice and improve now, worry about actual projects later.

 

The biggest thing, though, is not to sing/voice act because there's a need in the community, but because you personally want to. I'm an amateur; I'm not very creative and I can't write music or play instruments, but I have a ton of fun recording songs and voice acting when I can.
