Creative Brief

Notes on the placement of vocals.

Verse 1 00:38 -> 01:07
Chorus 1 01:07 -> 01:43
Interlude 01:43 -> 02:38
Singing (?)  02:38 -> 03:30
Verse 2  04:03 -> 04:30
Chorus 2  04:30 -> 05:07

The parts marked as verses and choruses go together because they repeat.

The Interlude and part marked as Singing (?) are other places that vocals could go. 


The end of the song is a bit complicated. You can hear that there are two distinct parts. I was thinking that the vocals would alternate with guitar leads. There is a break at 05:13 and when the whole band kicks in this pattern is followed until the end of the song. My initial thought is that the vocals would go on the A part and the leads would go on the B parts. 

A -> 05:21

B -> 05:36

A -> 05:50

B -> 06:03

A -> 06:16

B -> 06:30

A -> 06:44

B -> 06:58 

End -> 07:09


Song Structure

Started out based on the idea of a rondo where the structure is defined as ABABABA and each subsequent repeated section is a variation. 

The key for the A sections is D minor

The key for the B sections is A minor


This tab is for the high guitar part towards the end. It shows the rhythm for the riff part, but not the chords.  

D minor
