Come, Sail Away

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is "Come, Sail Away" by Styx. One of my favorites of theirs. I came up with this arrangement for guitar, pretty much on the spot. Then put acoustic eq on it. Nothing on the voice. But partially through, I backed off the mic a bit, which sounds like a volume change. The last note sounds like falsetto at full volume and kind of felt like it. Immediately after I was done I thought of a grittier note but oh well, nothing like maxing out the mic and the channel waveguide.

Many people thought Tommy Shaw sang this. He did not. He was more of gritty singer. It was the other guy, Dennis DeYoung, who also sang "Mr. Roboto." Tommy Shaw sang on songs like "Renegade."
