Ahoy there! Digitally sail to yonder Patreon: iTunes ($0.99) mp3 on CDBaby ($0.79) (Click "Show More" to see info about why I use pitch correction) Interested in performing this/sheet music?!arrangement-pdfs/cgv7 Having heard this song off and on, the idea of having this as a sea shanty seemed logical to my mind. As for most of these cross-pollinating musical endeavors, there are various rules broken both in adapting the original song and imitating the sea shanty style. Pitch Correction: I'm an arranger/composer, not a performer, so I use Melodyne to make the arrangement sound as best as possible. I see it as a vocal MIDI. If anyone ever wants to sing the melody or harmony parts to this, I always welcome other people to perform my arrangements. I also do video because I get more exposure to my arrangements this way, not because I think I'm a videographer. Software: Finale for notation. Logic Pro to record and mix. Melodyne for pitch correction, and audio quantization Final Cut for video editing MPEG Streamclip for video conversion Hardware: AKG Perception 220 Consender Mic PreSonus FireStudio Mobile (computer audio interface) Original Song Info: "Sail" by AWOLNATION © 2011 Red Bull Records Written by: Aaron Bruno Produced by: Aaron Bruno Photo source: ----- LINKS! jimlapbap's Music: CDBaby (cheapest): iTunes: Amazon: Google Play: Spotify: Kickstarter Page (for raising funds for arrangements and song uploading fees of new singles you see here): Facebook page: twitter: Questions about performing arrangements or commissions for new works or arrangements: If my haircut interferes with the music, just close your eyes.


jimlapbap : With all the views this is getting from reddit, I just might have to put the song for sale on the online stores?

David Nanney : why is this so damn addicting? better than the original. good job

partyboy317 : Those ropes aren't moving! HE'S A PHONY!!! A GREAT BIG PHONY!!!

Brian Sargent : You should do a cover of the Sound of Silence.

CJ Erskine : omg fake you and your twins aren't even pulling the rope.

Minoren7 : How does this have 8000 views, if there's only 7000 people in the world?

Cosmic Centurion Deathvoid Entropic Darkswarm Abyss Meteor Suplex Firefist Twerk Team Wolfpack : This song plays every time I walk into Port Sarim

jimlapbap : You know, I say that I put everyone's name in a subscriber video, which is usually every couple of months or so, because that's how long it takes me to get 50 subscribers.  I've gotten 244 (listed) subscribers in 2 days thanks to this being shared on reddit.  So, this is going to be interesting

Jack Palek : You sir are a genius. Great editing and you harmonize so well with yourself. This could not have been an easy project to do. BRAVO!!

boxoflostcauses : Holy shit this works way better than expected

jimlapbap : I'm in the process of uploading the song through my distributor CDBaby to sites, like iTunes, Amazon, Google, Spotify, Rhapsody, etc. In a perfect world, it could be available as early as 12 August 2014. EDIT: It's available now!

Adam does youtube : If this could be put in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag....

Intrexa : I don't think they are really on a boat. You can tell because as they pull on the rope, it doesn't actually move.

Rob : Border lines between serious and cheesy.

David : 2:44 Cap'n opens the nth dimension with his hand.

Paul Deeter : I just want you to know I've been playing this at least once a day since discovering it a week or so ago so thank you for this obsession

Peter Friedman : Get a choir and do it live! There definitely would be an audience that would buy tickets if you promoted it well!

olivia asbury : Can't stop listening to it! Amazing!!

gtmustang32111 : I love this song and you did a great job remaking it! Just trying to promote some of the advice others may have said (some not so nicely said it), but the video quality somewhat takes away from the quality of the video. Investing in even a higher quality camera could help. Using a smartphone someone's selling online can even work.  And you may have noticed the overwhelming number of trolls that for some reason follow all the videos posted on Reddit, best thing to do is ignore em and enjoy the free views lol.

John Toomey : you look like J-Roc from Trailer Park Boys

Crazantics : Well, most of the current "artists" use quite a bit of vocal modification. So in that regard, you are at least as good, if not far better than them. I do love what you did to the song to make it your own. Thanks for the music.

HaulAway : I wanted to let you know that this was a HUGE hit with the rest crew when I served two weeks on the tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain :)


Uhmhm : I heard there is something for SALE?

Miranda Plautz : This is AWESOME!!!!!!! I can't help but listen to it over and over.

chlobrina : Are you single?

Nick G. : This was fantastic! You truly embodied the spirit of classic shanties while still making it modern and original. Well done!

Sang Eeth : This needs a million views at the least.

ChrisEngle87 : boom-a-lay-uh hey-ho heave-away-uh

Spooder-Man : This is great. When Sea of Thieves comes out, I'm broadcasting this from my ship so everyone that comes near will hear.

Craig N : This was excellent, nice work.

No1maggot Productions : Fair play man, sounds really good. You composited it really well.

raptor6600gt : This is my favorite version of this song. I feel happier after listening to it. Thanks for making this man.

Tarshana : You have incredible range. Fantastic job :)

Spekti Jim : Listened to this about 5 times in a row go from strength to strength old chap :D

seriousfrog : Bloody Brilliant!

robinepj22 : Fabulous!  Great harmony, costumes and choreography!  You do a great job on these videos.

Marc Waters : This is pretty awesome. Good job, man.

Paul Stober : I think your "version" is more interesting than the original. I liked the different voicing - different octaves - toward the end. Good work!
