Click on 360p to make sure it says 480p, because audio sucks otherwise!

This is my version of the song Africa by Toto. I arranged this song for Hawkapella, my old a cappella group, and you can watch me performing it with them here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-_60c...
This was a relatively easy song to learn: I think the group learned it in about an hour. The arrangement was a lot of fun to sing.

I recorded the audio using a cheap condenser microphone connected through an MBox 2 mini to my computer. Normally I would use Pro Tools LE, but since they didn't have a version for OS 10.6, I had to use GarageBand. Reverb added to all tracks, and a little EQ on the percussion to bring out my bass drum sound, but otherwise no effects or tuning added.

The video was pretty hard to figure out how to make... I ended up using a ScreenFlow Demo and then cropping most of the watermark out with iMovie. If I decide it's worth making a bunch more of these videos, I may buy ScreenFlow, cause it's a good program. But for now, this is what you get :)
