Ok, let's try Thursday. I assume the Karaoke show will be later on Thursday evening, so the slot will probably be somewhere in the late afternoon.

I hope, it's not to late, but I really would like to join this event :-)

I could do vocals, keyboard and bluesharp.
If Jumpy could bring his accordion to the Eurofurence, I also can play this instrument.

I would be very glad, if there's still place to join one or two songs :-)

Greetings

an Kris: I'm glad to hear that :D

About the songs - I'm fine with the songs Kris already posted (The Riddle and I was made for loving you - good choice!). I just missing some typical 80's keyboardbased songs.
So I'm also for Aha - Take on me :-) (But Puple Rain is also a good song)

Two ideas from myself:
1. Eye of the tiger? Just to have one song with furry content^^
2. We'vo got three vocals and one bass until know - maybe we could try For The Longest time from Billy Joel? :)

Funny you should mention the longest time.

I happen to have sheet music for that one plus practice mp3s. We'll have to try how good it sounds.

Other suggestions:
- ELO Hold on Tight to your Dreams
- GnR Sweet Child o'Mine
- I'm gonna hate myself for having to practice it on the bass, but: MJ Billie Jean

Should we try to schedule a practice weekend? We could do it at my place in Berlin. Our Garage has lots of space, our neighbors aren't too finicky about noise and we have lots of space, not to mention a bunch of instruments sitting around. If response is generally positive, I'll post a doodle with the available weekends.

Sorry for the late answer, I'm moving at the moment to a new flat.

ELO, Guns 'n Roses, Michael Jackson... also very good ideas :-)
Maybe we give a limit, how many songs we would like to play? Then we could choose some titels, after everyone posted his favorites.

About the practice weekend, I find this is a good idea. For me Berlin is fine and I' ve got after June a lot of free weekends :-)
Otherwise we really had to practice at the Eurofurence befor we enter the Open Stage.

A practice weekend would be good.
Berlin is about 450 km from me. (living near Paderborn)
Maybe three or four days should work.

I've PM'ed you a link to a doodle. Please fill in your dates as soon as possible.

Practice weekends would start on Friday evening and run into Sunday afternoon.

With the virtual drum kit, let me propose that we should not be using actual guitar/bass amps for either the rehearsal or the concert (too loud), instead we can all go through a regular PA setup (available). 3-4 VAmps, both software (Guitar Rig) and standalone (Line 6, Bass-V) are available here.

If the Savannah Revolution rehearsals are any indication, we'll be playing well into the early (and not so early) morning, so the neighbors will thank us, and we do want to hear each other.

I have a 4-channel headphone amp, in case we want to do in-ear monitoring like we did a few years ago.

Hi!

We should get to work on our set list and decide who will play which instrument on what songs.

Billie Jean:

I've prepared a lead sheet for "Billie Jean" and uploaded it.

On that one, I'd like to take the bass, but unfortunately that means I won't be able to sing second voice.

Kris, you okay with doing guitar? Lots of funny muted guitar :)

Vakur, keyboards? I can provide pretty good sounds (close anyway) on my Roland XV1080, have a rough setup already.

The Longest Time:

I'm actually not sure if we can pull this off. It has a few too many voices and leaving any out will sound bad. I can take either of the three background voices although the highest won't sound so good.

How experienced are you guys as singers? What's your voice range?

If we do it at all, I think I should be singing, not playing bass, so that would leave Kris with the bass.

The other songs

Could you upload them please? I haven't even heard some of them, and there isn't terribly much time left to practice for me.

Also, I won't have time to prepare lead sheets for everything. Going to do Sweet Child of Mine, Invisible Touch, then Hold on Tight to your Dreams next. On all those I'd suggest this setup:

Eisfuchs - Lead Vocals, Drums
Kris - Guitar
Vakur - Keyboards
me - bass

other stuff

Vakur told me he can only arrive at the rehearsal on Saturday, but I'm suggesting that we others start on Friday evening anyway - more time to practice together and we'll definitely need to get some feel for playing together.

Oh! Another song that we might do.

"Was soll das" by Grönemeyer. Hey, it was even in the U.S. charts, and it's from 1988.

Got another famous song:

Moskau by Dschingis Khan. They were internationally active in the 70's and 80's. And still are today. Easy song.

Am trying my best to get sweet child o'mine right on guitar. (f*** you, slash, you bastard...).

"Hit me with your best shot"... the solo is almost killing my fingers. Gotta see if I can make that one work.
"I was made for loving you"... Only hard part is the solo as well. But I think I can work that one out.

The Riddle works good. working on Invisible Touch as well. Glad it has no hard patterns. Purple rain has some mean parts. practicing on them.
Summer of 69 works fine.

Haven't started on "Hold on Tight" yet, but will do this week.



UPDATE

We got the stage from 5pm to 7pm fixed.

Sounds good!

working on Invisible Touch as well. Glad it has no hard patterns.

Are we doing this one in Eb like they do on the live version recording I uploaded or in F (original key on CD when it came out)? It might be a little easier on Eisfuch's voice if we do Eb.

Could you all please upload the missing songs to the hidrive so we all have the same versions?

So far the hidrive has sheets and recordings for
- Billie Jean in F#m
- Eye of the Tiger in Cm
- Longest Time in Eb
- Was soll das in A
- Sweet Child of Mine in C#

I'm going to try and prepare a few more today. Okay, I'm done for the day.
