For this assignment, you're going to take the instrumental of a song and mash it up with the VOCALS of another song! Here's the main challenge with this; both songs have to have similar beats per minute (bpm) to work properly together.


You can find songs with just instrumentals or just vocals on Youtube, then use Audacity or Garageband to match up the tracks. (Hint, if the bpm is a little bit off, you can always delete portions of the vocals and move them closer or farther from each other to keep things on beat.)
