!!!! Everything To You - GIFT's Version (Acoustic Song Cover) !!!!

ALOHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! VFK PEOPLE!!!

Today, I bring YOU lots of content! I have sung and did a cover of Miss Clue's EVERYTHING TO YOU (acoustic version)! :O Surprise but not really bc some of y'all know about it. ;) (Especially Nautilus, MistyMew, Flamanar, Silver lolololol) :P :P :P Before I went breaking... Ya...

Attached here are several videos. Here are the key notes that I think overall of this wonderful experience. A little intro and BTS.

1. I've wanted to cover this song for a long time ever since hearing it! When I saw the title Everything To You - Anne's Version in the home page, I immediately thought that that is MISS CLUE's way of inviting musicians to do their own cover! :D I'm like, "WHY NOT!?!??!" And the rest is history...
2. This is how I'll sing it for RAD and NIXIE's wedding! With a ukulele in hand, serenading them lalalala! :D
3. I contacted VFK staff about everything including about posting my videos, so no worries for everything seen here. It's all staff approved! :) I had to make sure and I want staff to know as well. Staff has been cool about it!!!
4. Was I nervous? More like excited! That I can finally share this to y'all! :) I'm always excited whenever I can master something with my ukulele LIKE THIS SONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

MUSIC NOTES/MUSIC BEHIND THE SCENES:
1. I arranged the song to be my own version and I chose it to sound Hawaiian themed - meaning I changed the tempo and the word placement BUT I stayed true to the chord progression of the original song. After figuring out my pitch start which is the F major chord in ukulele, I then studied the corresponding chords that resonates with F major, played it till I get the flow of the song. See the Behind The Scenes Video because that is the night I studied and play the chords for the very first time in ukulele.
2. I told Nikola, the awesome guitarist, to make it sound Hawaiian so I told him to add guitar slides! And he delivered as you can see in the video. Now it sounds more Hawaiian than ever. He also had to transpose it to guitar and since the 2 instruments are different from each other, the guitar chords will be different but still in tune with my ukulele chords. He also took care of the rest of the track, mixing and mastering it to its full potential! Also he edited the video. In short he did a lot of things. :)
3. I wanted to make as much content as possible with the song in one go (hence it took long lol), so there's also the fingerpicking version which made me practice the dexterity of both my hands along with memorizing finger picking!
4. There's so much extra shenanigans I made so I just uploaded all of them hahaha because YOLO! This is a special experience that I loved to have done. If MISS CLUE ever makes more song, I'll cover them haha (in my own way of course). :P
5. Thanks to my friend Brooke for transposing the lyrics! If it weren't for her, I will forever be singing the wrong words. As you can see in my FIRST TIME Testing the Song video, the lyrics are waaaaay off, lol. Because that's how I hear it. I then asked her for help because I can't figure out some words! So for a year or so, I've been humming the wrong words. :P Will be attaching the lyrics in this post as well. 

That's all I could think for this song's behind the scenes! These are the different versions, starting with the official studio track! :)

LYRICS:

Everything To You


(Lyrics by Miss Clue Team)
(Arranged by Gift Princess)


Hey wanna go surfing?
And a 1, 2
A 1, 2, 3 go



I.

Up at the break of dawn, you're always out and gone
You hit the beach you're in the sun and surfing
You say you got to fly, I never wonder why
Your spirits soar when you are off and surfing

Pre-chorus:
Surf's up the waves are crashing in


Chorus:

Oh you say I am everything to you
Your sun and surf that I'm all that makes up you
Gonna catch some rays
Ooo
Gonna ride the waves
Gonna ride the waves


II.

You're surfing near and far, don't wonder where you are
You call and tell me you are off and surfing
Painting crash carve and curl, I'm your bodacious girl
The words don't matter in the sun and surfing



(Repeat Pre-chorus and Chorus)

Gonna ride the wa-aaaaaaaves
Gonna ride the wa-aaaaaaaves


Bridge:

Beach and sun and surf and curl
I am your bodacious girl
Moon and sun and stars and sky
You're my total surfing guy!


Chorus:

Oh you say I am everything to you
Your sun and surf that I'm all that makes up you
Gonna catch some rays
Ooo
Gonna ride the wa-aaaaaaves
Gonna ride the wa-aaaaaaves
I'm gonna catch some ra-aaaaaaays
Gonna ride the wa-aaaaaaaves

Up at the break of dawn....

Hawaiian Slides

Shot Glass Guitar Slides2

Fun fact: Shot glass was used as guitar slides bc his broke into a million pieces!

Another fun fact: I shot my video outside while it was super hot and also ants were biting my feet. @_@ So I had to re-film around 5 times and move to another location.






THANKS STAFF FOR THIS SONG! IT WAS A FUN PROJECT!!!!!! Glad to cover it in every way as much as possible. :))

    Okay going

    thank you dazzlerdream for the signature
  • Oh my gosh gift. You sound amazing! If vfk ever does any more music, I think they know who to hire next LOL.

    Your voice sounds like a Disney princess :O I actually was watching it and my mom was nearby and she thought the same! Anyone else hear the princess sound in the video?

    As I’m typing this I realize your gamer title is gift princess, I guess that goes with the Disney princess voice :P.

    Great job :)
  • AGREED @millsfan!!  She sounds just like a princess!  I have to listen again! WOOO  =D>

    GOLDENPUPPYgoldenpuppypicturetacocatTHANKS TACOCAT!!





  • Lovely, gift!  Enjoyed that very much!
  • @GIFT Well done!  clearly you put tons of hard work into the song, and it shows!  I agree with Mills that you have a Disney princess-type voice!  Song really came together nicely.

    One takeaway:  I was surprised by the shot glass, ROFL.  I've only recorded one song with a slide guitarist.  While we recorded, he was so into the song that the slide flew off his finger and across the (small) room, lol!  Obviously we had to cut that take and continue once he got it.  We recorded live electric bass, slide guitar, rhythm guitar and lead guitar at the same time.  Took up much less studio time not separating the individual instrument recordings.  Studio time is crazy expensive.  Well it was crazy expensive around 1990 ;)  Had alot of great times in that studio that I'll never forget.  I'm sure you'll never forget your recording sessions as well!  Keep up the good work, and looking forward to what you share next :)

    You'd be surprised what you can do with the short end of the stick
  • WOW I love your voice Gift!! We want more!
  • Nobody has mentioned it yet, but I think you're so pretty Gift!!!  Along with having a sweet and lovely voice!

    Thank you so much for sharing GIFT, I love this!!

    Yes, the moment he sent me the final edited I was like, wait, you were using a shot glass all along? I never knew, rofl! Sneaky! I've used him for my other acoustic tracks too, he learns so quick.  XD And omg yes, studio sessions are fun and makes memorable experiences. Learning a lot too!

    Check out his works, he's good with any genre!

  • @GIFT I'm surprised he had that much control over the shot glass.  that thing has more weight at the top when upside down.  Must have been challenging for him!  A great workaround for a slide when ya gotta have one, right? 

    I remember studio sessions going through the night until about dawn.  By that time, everyone was punchy or falling asleep, lol.  But in the end, the recording was great.  Go figure :)  I had played bass on that one studio session.  I never played bass before, but the guy who was supposed to record with that band (and a few other players) couldn't get to the studio because it was a heavy snowstorm.  I lived a few blocks away, and my buddy was playing rhythm guitar and I had just gone to watch.  Lead singer asked if I could play bass guitar.  I hesitated and told him 'well I play rhythm guitar, I should be able to play bass easy'.  It was easier than I expected, but killed my fingers after playing through the night.  Took a few days to heal.  Was worth it ;)

    My old drummer is a talent scout, manager and is an engineer in studios.  He also played drums for a few big bands. It's great that we can all keep in touch so many years later!

    Thanks for the info on your guitarist!  Gotta check him out ;)  Flame

    My latest rehearsal lasted 8 hrs and we still haven't recorded the tracks. Practice, practice, practice! I was falling asleep towards the end. XD So much fun, thanks for sharing stories that I can relate to so much. I didn't get much pics but I'll post more later, need to hone my guitar skills. Even tho my fingers can only reach 2 frets at most. But I think I can dabble with bass guitar. And boy, aren't they heavy? Some of them be like 10lbs. Not only you hurt your fingers, you also hurt your back. o.O

    @Flamanar

    Oh and I'll show you the drum set later.
