Seemed that the JHMCollab was a bit of a fail haha perhaps we can try another time. Instead today, we bring you a tune that a lot of you probably recognize! It’s been a pretty hot topic lately, but I have to admit, I haven’t watched the show before…I was wondering what to post for today, and came back to the Inn late last night to find Ryan practicing in the lobby. Alix had just given me a ride so I asked them if they were willing to put something together for me for today’s post. Ryan’s a fan of GoT so he suggested this track and we got to work on it! Julian came back a little later and we dragged him into this too haha. I am super thankful for these three for putting up with me and recording this last minute late night jam lol I’m sure they were tired as it was getting past midnight. But I must say it’s really nice getting back to these live jams after all the Acapella stuff I did. Doing these things in person is so much better :) I hope you enjoy it!

Feels | Calvin Harris feat. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean

What's missing in this video?? That's right. YOU!
-
I've gotten many requests to collaborate and I want to play with all of you! Here's how:
1. Download the Acapella App @acapellaapp
2. Find my Acapella page @kkubota8
3. Find this latest post and click collab
4. I've given you 3 blank squares, so play and record! You can sing, play, dance, whatever! (You don't have to use all the squares. Up to you!)
5. Save your performance and share on Instagram and tag #JHMCollab
I will listen to ALL of your JHMCollab videos and choose one to FEATURE on my page on Tuesday!
-
Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
DM me if there's any questions 😊
-
Some music stuff that might be helpful:
1. As it says up top, this is the backing track to Feels by Calvin Harris
2. This is in the song's original key in D major
3. There are a total of 24 bars here, or three sets of 8-bar phrases. The whole song is this progression (except the bridge) so you can cover any part of the song or just improvise!
4. Metronome speed 101 bpm

This JHM is a little different than any of the other ones I have posted in the past, and it’s also very special for me. I was going through my videos on my computer and found this. This is the first piece I have ever commissioned in my life, for my Master’s graduation recital. That means that this piece was composed and dedicated to me, for that occasion. The composer is a dear friend of mine, @sayo_composer, who was also like my older sister during our time at Juilliard. She’s in demand and super busy, so I was so thankful she made the time to write this piece for me. She knew that I liked pop and jazz so this piece was born which brings together those sounds! The funny story is that since she’s so busy, she was not able to send us the completed score until 5 days before the recital haha which meant that Chi-Wei (pianist) and I had to learn a piece we had never heard or seen before in 5 days for a formal performance haha. I don’t think I’ve ever learned a new piece that fast and worked that hard lol but it was worth it. Chi-Wei is also a good friend of mine, and we were in the same class at school. He’s a versatile pianist with experience in improvisation, so he was a great pick for capturing this jazzy vibe. I hope you enjoy our performance :) The full version will be up on my YouTube channel, so be sure not to miss it!

I often try to have some backlogs so when I’m busy or traveling (in this case), I have stuff to post. Unfortunately we are running super low on the backlogs (as in, I have one left that Mitch doesn’t really want me to post lol) so we tried to put something together even though we’re hours apart on different continents. What would we do without internet? haha. He sent me the video first and I made a backing track around him. Making these kind of videos requires so much time and editing…I spent over 7 hours on this haha…but on a good note, I learned how to animate stuff! I didn’t even know the term “keyframe” lol learning new things everyday. Part of the reason why it took so long was because I was learning this new thing lol. Color corrections are hard too…still trying to get better at video editing lol such a struggle right now lol.
