Topic: Carol of the Bells - A Musical Advent Calendar!

I know that Nathan Wells likes Carol of the Bells a lot. I, too, think it's one of the greatest christmas songs that play every year, and love to seek out new versions. With all this in mind, and it being December 1st and all, I decided to upload a cover of the song as a one-off fun little activity.

At a family meet-up today, someone suggested (as a joke) that I do 24 covers of Carol of the Bells, one every day leading up to Christmas. I laughed it off, but then, wondered if I'd be up for that sort of a challenge...

So, without further ado, I present for your listening pleasure - 24 covers of Carol of the Bells for the 24 days until christmas! Let's hope we can still all enjoy this song afterwards. mini/tongue

Just click on the images to be taken to each cover! (Youtube)

Ha Ha! I was just mentioned by a Reggae Music News twitter account. I guess reggae Carol of the Bells covers aren't all that common. mini/tongue

Cool! Can we use these in our videos? I agree Carol of the bells is like, the greatest Christmas song ever!

Great job by the way! These are very well done! mini/smile

I'm thinking about possibly releasing these as an album once finished, YummyBurrito.

Although, I would certainly allow brickfilmers (as well as independent filmmakers) to use any of the covers here, so long as they credited me (Dylan Johnson), included a link to the playlist in the description, and gave me BiM credits, should the video be uploaded to Bricks in Motion.

Just so others could, too, could hear these covers, and potentially use them as well! mini/smile

Ah this is so much fun. I love the Iron Man one, very clever.

Re: Carol of the Bells - A Musical Advent Calendar!

Very nice. Would you mind if I used one of these in a fake trailer I'm creating for Christmas?

The 6th song, Carol of the Bells for Piano Duet, comes with sheet music! If anyone is so inclined, try it out yourself!

Note: I can't actually write/read sheet music very well, and had the program do it for me after some quantization. If things seem off or weird, that's the reason.

Although, I will say - I, not being a very good piano player, was able to manage both parts of the duet separately within one take each, so it shouldn't be too hard for anyone who has a limited understanding of syncopation!

I think I will when I get a chance. Aside from the two octave reach in the right hand in the middle of page 5, this should be doable as a piano solo. I actually did a very basic arrangement of Carol of the Bells a few weeks back, for a humorous commercial idea. I don't know if I'll have time to get to that by the 16th, but if not I'll probably shoot it afterwards, just for fun.

Re: Carol of the Bells - A Musical Advent Calendar!

Sorry I was a few minutes late on the link tonight. I was busy watching my favorite version of A Christmas Carol.

And, if anyone has any suggested genres they'd like me to try out, be sure to comment on the videos or respond here. I doubt I'll run out of ideas/genres... however, I wouldn't want to skip over any musical styles that any of you may be expecting/hoping to see!
