For those of you just joining us, this is the Beatle Brony project! We take Beatles songs, write new pony lyrics for them, and then cover them! It's been a blast and we've done over 30 songs so far and plan to do more as Season 2 progresses!

You can find our channel here: www.youtube.com/user/BeatleBrony

You can find our, as of yet, unused lyrics here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NmzPUFIV8Oad0Z0nQEoYix54MUUpvck6le9S7h--YnA/edit?hl=en_US

We are currently in the progress of covering "Strawberry Fields Forever!" This is going to be a difficult process as we do not have an orchestra to play with. We do have qdBrony's friend who has offered to help with some strings and Bloomberg has a trumpet, but if anypony else would like to help, that would be great!

Other things we need
- some orchestral strings for a cover of Eleanor Rigby
- a Sitar player
- more album art!

If you can help us out with these, that would be spectacular! Post here or shoot me and email at [email protected]

Took comments into account. Dropped the volume of the fills and dropped the general instrumental volume.

Compressed and added reverb to the Vocal track

I wonder what sort of inspiration tomorrow's episode will bring.

Also, are you busy tomorrow qd? Because if we are inspired, perhaps we could get a song out by late afternoon. Just a thought.

Firstly, I'm in love with that Rubber Soul pic.

Just listened to Bloomberg. I think the vocals are at a good a level. Overall, just make sure Dreamhuk's sitting in a good place in the mix, and you've got it.

I'd agree that the tom fills need to be taken back a couple notches.

Well, she has to choose between her friends and her career/society connections in Canterlot. I'm sure we'll get more specific scenes to work with tomorrow, but there's that.

Okay, v2: The levels are much better, as it no longer sounds like the parts are fighting for the front spot. As a result it has that relaxed, enchanted quality the song needs. In addition to the focus given to the vocals, the reverb is well-implemented.

We may finally have this one in the bag.

Don't listen to Rarity!
Bloomberg, don't you see?,
You're a big, strong apple tree.

On a hill in Appleoosa,
You sit so proud and high.

Did a little more work on Strawberry Fields. I doubletracked qd's vocals and messed with the pitch a bit. It was about 0.15 half steps off (pitch is going to be such a pain for this song, I can tell, but as long as you're consistent it works out).

I also did the opening part with my new MIDI to USB connector! Allowing me to make a perfect mellotron sound!

SQUEEE!!

Ok, SpeakingOut just sent me her vocals for All Together now! So I mixed all the vocals we have in and it just sounds awesome!!

And SpeakingOut, you have a spot on Pinkie Pie! It just needs a little more energy in places. Also, is your sample rate low? The track sounds like it's coming through a radio a bit (a sign of a low Hz rate).

I teared up a bit. I'm serious. This was one of the first songs I wrote for the project and one of the songs I wanted done the most, but I had already given up hope on it ever being done.

Alright guys, NEW LYRICS! I really like these. It's in the point of view of some random background pony, whoever won first place on the Running of the Leaves.

Running of the Leaves (Back In The USSR)

News came from Sugarcube to the Everfree
Didn't get to bed last night
Thinking of tomorrow's Running Of The Leaves
I wanna make those leaves fly
Racing on the Running Of Leaves.
You don't know how hard it can be, filly.
It's the Running Of The Leaves.

Pink Balloon in the sky seeing all up high,
Along with the leaves it flies,
Spike rides the balloon with an excited face,
Accompanied by Pinkie Pie,
Racing on the Running of Leaves,
You don't know how hard it can be, filly.
It's the Running of
It's the Running of
It's the Runnning of the Leaves.

Well the rainbow flier's wings are tied up tight,
Yet she still leaves me behind,
The farmare strong catches up to Dash,
Or so I heard from Pink Pink Pink Pink Pinkie Pie.
Oh, come on
Hu Hey Hu, hey, ah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah
Racing on the Running of Leaves.
You don't know how hard it can be, filly.
It's the running of the leaves.

Well the two mares leave us all behind
That is 'til they start to fight,
They take detours, and get off the trail,
Or so I heard from Pink Pink Pink Pink Pinkie Pie.

Oh, I just lost the two mares I could win the race,
I could go and win the gold,
3 mares trail behind me, Twilight is the fifth,
First of all the mares and colts,
Won gold on the Running of Leaves,
You don't know how hard it was t'win, filly.
Gold on the Running of Leaves.
Oh, let me tell you filly!

"We Can Work It Out"

Try to see it my way,
Do I have to keep on dressing up in stupid clothes
While you see it your way,
Care about beauty while the deadliest wind blows

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Would you stop your braying,
Wet this mane? I tell you: absolutely not!
And you know I'm praying,
That you'll realize dirty hooves are all you've got

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Guys, would you just stop
And take a lo-ooo-ook
Stop fussing and fighting, my friends
This was not explained
here in my bo-ooo-ook
So I will ask you once again

Try to see it my way,
Can we tie this tree down? Only Applejack's that strong
While you see it your way
If you need solutions Rarity is never wrong

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Fun fact: the bass in "Two of Us" appears to be just George on his Telecaster, as this video seems to suggest. But anyway, here are the lyrics. Took a bit longer than expected, but if everypony likes 'em, we can get to work.

Two of Us words by qdBrony

Spoken: "'I Dig A Pygmy Pony' by Charles Horse-tree and the Hoof-Aids. Phase One: In Which Rarity Gets Her Oats."
Spoken: "Mmm! That sounds delicious!"

Two of us at the boutique
Spending a week with Big Sis
Mom and Dad on vacation
For the duration. We'll have fun at home
Hang out in your home
Hang out in your home
Hang out at home

Two of us always fighting
Since arriving at your shop
Look at me trying to help out
But you just shout inside of your home
Inside of your home
Inside of your home
Inside your home

Applebloom has sisterhood
Stronger than the bond that we two ever had

Three of us at the social
Feeling boastful 'bout the race
AJ 'n' me are gonna run it
So much fun, it's like I'm now at home
It's like I'm now home
It's like I'm now home
I feel at home

You and I have memories
Longer than the race that we both nearly won

Two of us hug and make up
Think we'll take up sisterhood
You and me write a report
We won't sell short how love makes a home
Our love makes a home
Our love makes a home
We feel at home

Uhm. Yeah, about that - I just went ahead and did the whole thing spontaniously, since I woke up late and no one were there right when I asked, Although I think the recorded version has two guitars, since if you listen closely to the remastered version - The bridge both uses Whole chords and Power/5 chords.

If not though - I can just record the whole thing over - When we've agreed on something. Sorry! D:

Mon dieu! It appears that we both sort of had our cracks at it. I was about to bounce when i saw your post and I thought, "Horseapples!"

Basically, it's up to you what part you want. I'm sorry that things ended up awkward, but I'm going to taking in a film tonight, so I'll be unavailable for a spell. In any case, here are the parts, I've done (including vocal bits). I did these according to my Big Book of Beatles Scores, so I know they're accurate.

My Headphones decided to just stop working all of the sudden, so I had to go out in some complications in order to be able to follow rythmn.

>> No. 26965

In rock band two or three, there is a practice mode. If you have the cymbal attachments, the drums act like a synth set. If not, then you only have snare, bass, and some toms.

Ok, quick recap of what went on last night in skype.

1. We're currently working on "The Ballad of Twilight Sparkle" The drums, bass and acoustic guitar are done. I'm going to do the vocals and keys tonight, while qdBrony is going to do the electric guitar.

2. After a bit of research, we discovered that Parodies are protected by "Fair Use" laws. Therefore, it is not illegal for us to be getting money from bandcamp, or to monetize the videos on the channel. Once we find a good way of splitting or using the money, we'll try and file a claim on a few of our videos.

3. We all need to use skype. That conversation was incredibly helpful and much more productive than using this thread.
>> No. 27031

Interesting, I didn't know parodies fit under fair use when using similar compositions (as Youtube has flagged every parody I've done on my own for copyright on the composition). That's good news to hear. If we can start making money, we could put it towards all sorts of useful things in the project.

Also, I've added you on Skype.

See how they run like ponies from a luna, see how they fly.

Sitting on an apple farm, waiting for gummy come.

Man, you been a naughty pony, you let your face grow long.
I am a wonderbolt, they are the wonderbolts.

So this one is based on the stories in Cutie Mark Chronicles. Order is Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash (zooming into the horizon line), Twilight, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy.

Uncle Orange/Princess Celestia (Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey)

I'm so sorry, Uncle Orange.
I'm so sorry if I let my accent slip.
I'm so sorry, Uncle Orange,
But I'm starting to regret the fact I ever made this trip.

No I simply cannot live on a lone sautéed carrot slice.
I'm so sorry, Aunt and Uncle Orange
I don't mean to sound ungrateful for your hospitality.

(During this verse, the "ah" backup will be replaced with "Tom")

Oh poor filly, Lady Rarity.
Your costumes* did not achieve perfection today.
Oh, don't fret now, Lady Rarity,
For your horn will start to glow and you will soon be called away.
(Backup sings Rock)
To your destiny x3 (instead of "doo-doo..")

Chorus: Hooves across Equestria!
Hooves across the sky! x2

Princess Celestia notified me
My magical talent, a marvel to see
Her student she made me
But what's that on my flank?
A Cutie Mark!
(Cutie Mark? She cracked a dragon egg, so she got her cutie mark.)

[Chorus]

Giggle-Giggle, Pinkamena! Have some fun!
Put a smile on everypony!
Life's a party, have some fun! x2

[Chorus]

For the outro, Fluttershy's part, a bar or two of the melody from "So Many Wonders" should be inserted.

*This being the proper British speech segment, costumes is spoken as "cos-tyumes". It also works with the rhythmic spacing of syllables.


Since I bothered to write this song, I'm also doing Smile Away, retitled "Colgate." She could use a song, and the title fits her.

Sorry for the triple, but I see it's just been autocorrected here. I would use everypony, but the rhyme of "every one" and "have some fun" works too well. Plus, they've said "every one" on the show before.

Alright! With "The Ballad of Twilight Sparkle" done I think it's time for an update.

In Progress

Strawberry Fields - I believe that we have everything but the orchestral parts or parts from myself for the end. Once we get the strings in from qd's friend and trumpets in from Bloomberg, I'll get to work on finishing that.

All Together Now - We have all the instruments and are just waiting on a better quality recording from SpeakingOut.

With a Little Help From My Friends - Waiting on a better recording from SpeakingOut. The rest needs to be done by myself.

Up Next

Alright, there's only one song I'm sure of the parts for right now, and that is "Scratch That Sound!". Osoth has found a friend with a condenser mic and will be able to provide us with some vocals!

Now I think that ED made a guitar track for this already, but I seem to have misplaced it. Could somepony link that to me?

I'll take care of the drums. If Bloomberg isn't to busy with Trumpets, he can take Bass. If not, I'll go ahead and do it.

Me and qdBrony will do the Harmonies, I'll take upper, qd take lower. For the "aaah"s it'll go: qd - Osoth - me - qd - Osoth!

For No One - Ok, it's obvious I'll take keys on this one. I can't listen to it at the moment, so am unsure of whatever else we need. Anypony in particular want to sing this?

Oh Fluttershy - I think qd should take the guitar on this one. I'd like to do bass and i'll do drums. Anypony want to sing this one?

  I humbly submit, for your collective consideration, this set of lyrics. While it is to a solo George song, it's not "Apple Scruffs" like Hoofert and I initially thought about. For reference, I've included the original.

"This Mark" ("This Song" by George Harrison)

This mark has nothing tricky about it
This mark is not a ring and it's not an "O"
My sister made me a loopty-hoop so
This mark that you see
This mark is so me
This mark is now two and…

This mark has something not right about it
This mark is unheard of, but I really must say
I somehow know how to spin these plates
For this mark came to me
Unknowingly
This mark could be good, could be…

Pepperpot #1: Could be for making nice shoes.

Pepperpot #2: No! It looks more like tap-dancing!

Cette marque est pour parler en français. (Phonetic: Seht mark eh pour par-ley en frahn-say)
This mark is for changing tires, this one for choir
Why did I use that Heart's Desire?
But this mark could well be
A reason to see that
If not earned, there's no point
To this mark

But this mark could well be
A reason to see that
If not earned, there's no point
To this mark

I found prince charming (rarity)

Was spend the grand gala with my friends like we should
Because-

I befriend the animals (fluttershy)
Well they run from you every chance they get
Yes they run from you every chance they get
Oh now

I talk to Celestia (twilight)
Well you greet all the ponies you don’t even know
Yeah you greet all the ponies you don’t even know
I told you so

You have a strong foundation there, but I don't think it's quite there yet. I think if you did another pass on the lyrics and tried to tweak them so they're easier to sing/say, you'll have another winner. Good job, so far.

It varies. In some cases, the syllables are too few:
>Well, you can't satisfy their tastebuds

And in others, the meter is awkward, particularly in the chorus. One of the great things about "Dig A Pony"'s chorus is how lilting it is and that's because of its iambic meter. (accent is capitalized)
>EV'ryTHING has GOT to BE just LIKE you WANted, TOO

Also, try to think of other ways of saying the same thing, preferably with some sort of three-syllable word (indicate, syndicate, celebrate) so as to try and maintain the same sense of flow that the original had.

As for your other songs:
>>27450
I have to admit that it's a bit hard for me to separate this from "Oh Fluttershy" (Michelle) mostly because of the same subject matter. A word of advice, though, I find it's better to not force a parody. If you somehow can't come up with a good set of lines, you may have to abandon it for a while, if not entirely.

>>27433
Again, great foundation. The lack of rhymes, though, leaves me a bit troubled. I certainly understand the difficulty, though. Might be worth another pass on them as well.
>> No. 27619
>>27616
hm... I'll take those suggestions into consideration.

The only reason I was rewriting Little Child was because I remembered a list of episodes that hadn't had songs written about them.
Stare Master was one of them and I couldn't let that happen.
Since you already have a song for that episode, I'll scrap Little Fillies.

Also I think partially what the problem I'm having is that all three of these songs, and a fourth one I haven't posted yet, popped into my head at the same time.
So all my ideas for the songs keep interfering with each other.

It also doesn't help that I've only listened to some of those songs once or twice.

I'll see what I can do.

That works for me, but then again I'm not the head of this project.
I'm just suggesting lyrics.

While I'm thinking about it,
Would you mind taking a look at this last set of lyrics I came up with.
I can't think of anything to put for the second verse.
It's about Pinkie's reaction to the parasprites before the parasprites get out of control.

Parasprites (Ticket to Ride)

I think I'm gonna be sick,
By what I just found, yeah.
My friends have gone insane

Well, I can let you play the guitar or sing the lead vocals, whichever you prefer.
My French accent can be a bit audible sometimes, when I'm singing, so if you can provide a better lead vocal, I don't mind focusing on something else. (harmony vocals, instruments etc)

I propose we both have a quick go at guitar + vocals and determine who does what better.

If we're trying to keep both songs in their original keys, the only trick would be to modulate from A (HCtS) to G (HCtM). This can cause a few hiccups for a guitarist, though, since HCtS is played with a capo on 7 and HCtM is played capo on 5. George has played HCtS in G before (notably on "Saturday Night Live" in a duet with Paul Simon), but I feel that the feel is starkly different modulated a full step down.

Since we're now on a deadline for "I Bring the Sun/I Bring the Moon," which has been made all the tighter because of a major holiday in the US, I've taken the liberty of creating this reference track to give everypony to record to. I've already pitch-corrected "Here Comes the Moon" so that it is in the final product key of A.

29 November - a week from Tuesday - is the 10th anniversary of George Harrison's passing. Since most of us live in the United States, most of us will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday, which means that most of us will be unavailable for not only Thursday, but Friday and the weekend as well.

In any case, no time to lose. Here are my Iron Pony components split up for easier mixing. If you need me to do harmony vocals or anything else, just say so.

Okay, here's a potential song for today's episode.

He's A Tortoise (She's A Woman)
My pet ain't fast and agile.
but he ain't at all fragile,
Only ever has to give me love forever and forever,
My pet he isn't nimble,
not like Winona or Angel,
Told myself he was so strange oh.
Now I know my Tank isn't.

He don't need wings to fly,
on him I can rely.
He can save me when in danger,
when others pass me like strangers.
He don't need wings to fly.
My Tank he ain't no turtle,
out of his way to save me, this
Tortoise don't pass me by.

He's a tortoise to understands,
He is my tortioise, he is my Tank.

My pet ain't fast and agile.
but he ain't very fragile,
Only ever has to give me love forever and forever,
My pet he isn't nimble,
not like Winona or Angel,
Told myself he was so strange oh.
Now I know my Tank isn't.

He's a tortoise to understands,
He is my tortioise, he is my Tank.

He don't need wings to fly,
on him I can rely.
He can save me when in danger,
when others pass me like strangers.
He don't need wings to fly.
My Tank he ain't no turtle,
out of his way to save me, this
Tortoise don't pass me by.

He's a tortoise, he's a tortoise!


As you can see, the song needs to be a little modified from the original (aside from the lyrics), as I incorporated the second verse into the last. This should make the song less repetitive (as it's <1st verse, 2nd verse, chorus, 1st verse repetition, chorus, 1st verse repetition, outro>, and I made it <1st verse, 2nd verse, chorus, 1st verse repetition, chrous, 2nd verse repetition, outro>).

I know that he ain't fragile,
Only ever has to give me love forever and forever,
My pet ain't fast and agile,
Not like Winona or Angel,
Told myself he was so strange, oh
Now I know Tank can dazzle.

He don't need wings to fly,
On him I can rely.
He saves me when I'm in danger,
Others pass me by like strangers.
He don't need wings to fly.
My pet Tank he ain't no turtle,
Move that boulder, clear this hurdle, this
Tortoise won't pass me by.

He's a tortoise who understands,
He's a tortoise who's a true friend.

My pet ain't fast and agile.
I know that he ain't fragile,
Only ever has to give me love forever and forever,
My pet ain't fast and agile,
Not like Winona or Angel,
Told myself he was so strange oh.
Now I know Tank can dazzle.

He's a tortoise who understands,
He's a tortoise who's a true friend.

I took a quick listen and it does sound better, good enough to post I think. I'll try and get that mixed tonight so we can get it posted.

We haven't posted a vid in nearly two weeks!

So quick UPDATE!

In Progress

Strawberry Fields - Going slow, but it will be worth it. Not much new to note here

Scratch Your Sound - Wating on Osoth's vocals and a retry of the bass from Bloomberg

Oh Fluttershy - We have the guitar, so I'm thinking that I'll give this one a try. I'll see if I can't find some extra time here doing break to do this song.

Here comes the Sun/Moon - This one has a lot of parts done (all by qd) so I think we just need bass and synth on that one. I already did the drums so I'll work on the bass for this over the break so we can get this out on the 29th.

For No One/This Song - These two are going to have to wait a bit because we should put some focus on our next song.

Up Next

She's a Woman - This set of lyrics is great and the song is relatively simple. I'd like to give singing a try, either that or Osoth if he can do it. I'll also do drums and bass.

That's all I have time to update right now! Can't wait to keep working on some of these! Sorry I've been kinda out of touch.

I sent this in before, but here it is on Ponychan. Scootaloo, lyrics to Snookeroo by Ringo Starr [written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin].

I previously wrote the lyrics to Pinkie Pie [Honey Pie] for the Beatle Bronies.



One, two, three, five!

I was born in the north of Equestria [alt: Cloudsdale]
I was raised in a flyin' town
I broke all the rules when I went to school,
But the teachers couldn't pin me down

I'm lookin for my cutie mark
And I'll leave no stone unturned
No river uncrossed, no mountain unclimbed
No meal uncooked, no song unlearned

Scootaloo, Scootaloo
Sweetie Belle and Applebloom
Don't you try to cut my hair
I'll have you taken in for Scootabuse
Well, it was two scoots up
And two scoots down
Goin faster than an aeroplane
So don't you call me chicken cos I'm braver than you
And Scootaloo, Scootaloo, Scootaloo's my name

They all say you'll get your mark
When the time is really right
I could spend my life with a pegasus girl
Because a pegasus girl's my type

I hear them gossip on the street,
Most of what they say is true.
Oh, don't you know that i hear them say,
"There goes that lazy, no good Scootaloo."

Scootaloo, Scootaloo
Sweetie Belle and Applebloom
Don't you try to cut my hair
I'll have you taken in for Scootabuse
Well, it was two scoots up
And two scoots down
Goin faster than an aeroplane
So don't you call me chicken cos I'm braver than you
And Scootaloo, Scootaloo, Scootaloo's my name

Scootaloo, Scootaloo
Sweetie Belle and Applebloom
Don't you try to cut my hair
I'll have you taken in for Scootabuse
Well, it was two scoots up
And two scoots down
Goin faster than an aeroplane
So don't you call me chicken cos I'm braver than you
[alt: I was born on the eve of the summer sun]
[alt: Cos I'm as orange as a pumpkin on Halloween]
And Scootaloo, Scootaloo, Scootaloo's my name

Given that today's episode deals with a heroic celebrity, maybe it would be a good fit for The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill.

Something like
"Hey Mare Do Well!
Evil's dispelled
by Mare Do Well!
Hey Mare Do Well!
Tragedy's quelled
by Mare Do Well!"

Like the original song the first two verses can be some of the feats accomplished, and the third verse can be the townsfolk witnessing her heroism.

If anypony has a problem with Mare Do Well, an alternate name could be Mystery Mare.

"Hey Mystery Mare!
Baddies beware
of Mystery Mare!
Hey Mystery Mare!
Thanks for your care!
Thanks, Mystery Mare!"

So for those of you who are not on our Skype chat, here are some freshly written lyrics

Discorded World (Only A Northern Song)

When you check out my new world
You may see a dancing buffalo herd,
Is that wrong?
I just made them like that,

When you see the clouds up high,
You may see the brown color ain't right
But it is, Chocolate Rain sheds new light.

It doesn't really matter if flowers fly,
if water's dry, or purple bricks can sing,
As it's just my Discorded world.

It doesn't really matter if there's sun at night,
If tons are light, or if violins drink gowns,
when we're in my Discorded world.

If you think the harmony
Is a little dark and out of key
You're correct, there's no friendship there,
they can't kill my Discorded world.

Maximizing resonance is key to getting proper volume.

First off, I hope you have a soundpost under the bridge going from the front of the body to the back. That way, the energy is transferred to the back, providing more resonance.

Second, you need to stiffen the body as much as you can without inhibiting its ability to resonate to much (i.e., you can't wrap it up in umpteen million layers of duct tape). Cardboard, as I'm sure you've discovered, is not known for its tonal properties. Fun fact: some luthiers make cellos out of carbon fiber.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_post

Looking at your instrument's construction, I think I may see an issue. The neck, tailpiece, and bridge seem to be made of the same piece. Most of the energy remains in that large hunk of wood. The body, then, seems to be for decoration. It may be great for prototype electric guitars (see "The Log" [pictured]), but virtually all the sound in acoustic stringed instruments comes from the body.

As for stiffening up the body, I don't have any particularly bright ideas. Maybe a nice even coating of wood glue or two? *shrug*

the neck is a seperate piece from the other stuff, but i think i see what you're saying. So the bridge should directly be touching the box?
>> No. 29024

Absolutely. And this further reinforces the importance of the sound post, for it adds structural integrity to the instrument (especially one made of cardboard).

about how thick should the sound post be?
>> No. 29028

Hard to say, but it has to be strong enough to support the bridge and the pressures from it when the strings are properly tuned.

Without better materials and construction methods, I'm not sure. Just make sure your bow has a lot of rosin on it, though I'm not sure how nylon twine for strings will hold up.
>> No. 29058
>>29055
any ideas on something i could use instead of rosin? or a bow for that matter?
>> No. 29060
>>29058
The bow is the primary means of playing cello. The only other significant variant is pizzicato (plucking the strings) and that in itself has a softer sound.

Rosin is a form of sticky tree resin that you rub the bow on (the hair part) so that it grips the strings more effectively.

I seem to be making progress with the bow. I got some really fine sewing thread, and although it was very quiet and ineffective, i was able to get a much clearer sound with this. It's starting to sound more like an instrument and less like a pile of random shit from my garage.

My concern is that it could A) cause a mess and B) leave a viscous residue that could hamper the string's vibrations. Granted, rosin also leaves a residue, but it's generally powdery in nature.

We currently are working on Strawberry Fields Forever, and are in need of some Brass for that! We already have one trumpeter, but he has been really busy and perhaps we could have multiple trumpets to enhance the sound.

Stuck in the college library for a few hours? Y Not update!

In Progress

You Only Sent a Pair My Way - We have the guitar in from ED and a vocal take. We'll see how it sounds when put together. I can add the bass, brushes and stuff. It's pretty simple.

Lets give ED some encouragment and see if we can help him brush up his singing skills to do this song. He's already improved greatly. :-)

Oh Fluttershy - We have everything in but DreamHuk's background vocals. Cannot wait to get this track out!

I Don't Want to Spoil the Party - I am not currently at my home computer so I don't know what we have of this song. However, I do know that we don't have much. I think we only really have acoustic guitar.

Sweet Apple Acres Forever - We have a brass section! Can't wait to hear them! That's the only real major update. Any word from your friend qd?

At the moment I am not at my computer so I am completely blanking on whatever else were doing

-----

Coming Up Next

I'm not entirely sure what we should do next... On the one hand some of our newer songs are pretty good while on the other hand we do have a serious backlog. On the gripping hand, some of the backlog songs aren't exactly ready to be played yet. (Get Back still isn't quite working for me).

Two songs however that stand out in the Gdoc are "Happiness is Freindship" and "We Can Work it Out". I think we should put those towards the top of the to do list.

----

So I attempted to draw album art for Plastic Pony Band. Didn't turn out well. I did however succseed in drawing a good start for a Brony Soul album cover. I've drawn the heads of Myself, ED, qd and DreamHuk. What I need now is the background. I know ED mentioned that he could probably do that. Once I vector the heads and the new title, I'll send them to you ED. Then you can do your thing and stretch the image and perhaps add a little film grain to make it look more vintage.

Well, guys, inspiration has struck again. No, I didn't churn out lyrics that quickly, but I do have a song for today's episode.

Band on the Run. It could either be Mare on the Run or Jack on the Run. The opening is her shameful moment of not getting a blue ribbon, the second is her working on the Cherry Ranch, and then the main song is the other Mane 5's pursuit of her. I understand this song is a bit of an undertaking, so if, say, Run For Your Life is preferable I'll understand.
