I am trying to create an accurate score with the piano part in Jailhouse Rock!
Does anyone know of a good a accurate score / recording by someone else / Original Master recording
or video of the piano part of Jail House Rock as it appears on the actual Elvis 1957 song?.
Can anyone recommend me any method or person to successfully isolate the piano part in the 1957 recording in Jailhouse Rock?
This extract as an example of the Raw Midi created with the process described below:https://www.musescore.com/user/203226/scores/198226
It is a draft (.. and I will delete it, so fans do not worry
ISOLATING THE PIANO PART-
-- reinforcing the piano trying to remove other parts--
Based on the stereo take 6 (The one Released, found on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cJudinWvS8
I have enhanced the piano Part on this recording using Audacity, I have:
* Copied the Left channel which has the piano guitar and drums, (but hardly any Elvis Vocals) and pasted this audio from the left channel on both channels of a new audio track.
* Created form this track, a new track with no guitar sound by:
- Creating a "Noise Profile" of the Guitar's First Chord
- Removed that sound footprint from recording
and then I "rendered and Mixed" (in Audacity) this isolated Piano track with guitar removed, (sounded like jingles - not usable on its own as an audio of the Piano) with the original track that had vocals removed (content of the left channel in the original recording)
The result is this:https://soundcloud.com/user382593122/se ... ock-piano#
I also used the isolated piano track (see below)
and inverted the phase of this rendered and mixed with the enhanced piano track (see above) to eliminate the piano thus leaving the guitar.
I then inverted this to eliminate the guitar "walking riff" from the original . I used the equalization on Audacity to filter out the bass and saved this version as 16 bit ".WAV" file.
Then I opened with Melodyne, eliminated any remaining bass notes; increased the amplitude of the piano's top and chord notes (using Melodyne's amplitude tool), and saved as MIDI. Then I open the MIDI file with MuseScore and I have to make some sense of the crazy notation!
Please Help I really could do with your help! The Notation is gone mad and but it is very difficult to notate the swing of the piece!
This is my very first attempt to notate the swing of the piece which is proving very difficult! (having to swap from 12/8 to 4/4 time for the trill)https://www.musescore.com/user/203226/scores/196671
Please would anyone be so kind to direct me to a accurate score?
Thank you any comments would be VERY much appreciated!
