1. If you are able to name your recording file, please use this pattern: "GITF-voice-sub_voice_#-lastname_firstname" e.g. "GITF-TENOR-Rizal-Jose" by the way "GITF" = "Great Is Thy Faithfulness", another: "GITF-SOPRANO-2-Tamad-Juan-Jr" if you can't name your file or you've already submitted, that's fine. Mas hapos lang mag sort right off the bat eh.

2. We PLAN to do something BEFORE and AFTER the singing so, if you can record at least 1 MINUTE BEFORE AND AFTER your singing, that would be nice. Again, if you can't or forgot, that's fine too.

3. Outtakes are welcome (bati ko may ido nag intra kanta? pakantaha gid pls.)

- the sheet music now includes annotations. There is now a 'click-Light' on the top right of the screen. There is now a tempo countdown progress bar; this is in sync with the "3-2-1" countdown, it's a VISUAL cue for when you need to start singing.


On the top right panel, select the voice part that you want to rehearse.

See the boxes below the video? They're shorcuts to certain portions of the song and the text gives you an idea where. i.e. 'C 1 #135' takes you to the 1st Chorus, or measure #135 in the music. 'Pardon #173' takes you to the line 'Pardon for sin ....'. Please note it always starts 1 measure back.

You may notice 2 additional sounds in your right ear: a constant click and an annoying lady.

- The click gives you an idea of the tempo and if you listen closely you'll notice that it slows down/speeds up according to the emotional interpretation. Also notice that 1 click sounds different than the others; that's the FIRST BEAT of the measure.

- The Annoying Lady is a guide to help you prepare for when it's time to start OR stop singing, though not all the time, but only in the crucial parts. When she's counting down that means at the beat after she says, 'one' you either START singing or you CUT the note. When she's counting up that just means she's keeping track of how long you need to hold that note. Sometimes she will say 'Chorus' or 'Verse', but you know what they mean.

TIP: if she's counting down towards the start of a note (especially if they're whole notes holding hands), right after she's says 'ONE' take a quick deep breath to tide you through those 4+ measures of sustain. Really suck in air and not a moment too early.

The Click and the Guide take some getting used to and sometimes it can be very distracting. Normally there are volume controls to let you mix them to taste, but they are not made available in the code yet.

Hopefully this will help you practice better. Te kabay nga magtutum kita tanan. All for Jesus.... (Indi ako pag tum-uka)
