    Now from what I understand is that you were telling me to add in some more pitch bends that I missed, and that they should be charted using 1/64 instead of 1/16.


    Not exactly – EVERYTHING should be charted using 1/64. Quick vocal rules of thumb:

    – No syllable should be less than 2/64 long

    – Don’t bother with a slide if it’s just a semitone difference, and the start is less than 150 ms

    – For slides: the gap between the notes should be at least 2/64 for a semitone, and probably at least 3/64 for bigger slide intervals


    I don’t point out differences that are less than 2/64 – that’s close enough. So here’s my feedback for the first bit. The major points:

    – Syllable timing needs to be accurate to 1/64, not 1/16

    – Remember to chop off consonants like “s”, “f”, etc.

    – This is a very slidy song – “I’ve been sleep– ing here” needs more slides.
