I was a bit baffled as to how I was going to score the rap vocals. The chorus was easy, I just had to do a bit of aural dictation and do it myself. Oh yes, you don’t get the luxury of exporting midi for vocals!

I went to trusty google and found this website which was really helpful so I used that as a model.

Notating the rap vocal was a long and gruelling task. I had to rap it in my head and notate it. I made sure I tapped the quavers, making sure I knew where the quaver rests were and where i needed two semiquavers and not missing a beat. However, after finishing it the sense of accomplishment was amazing!

Once everything was done, I exported the score as a pdf.
