I was researching old style music to accompany my new art project called "Fatten The Flapper". I picked out some stuff to share as always!
Cartoon from YouTube 1931 Merrie Melodies
I start out with a skinny Flapper and then fatten her. I presented this as like a before and after diet pic.
That wah wah sound is called a Mute. I really like the way it sounds in the old sounds. They use it for the mom sound in Peanuts, too.
Back before they made what is called a Harmon Mute, they used all sorts of things.
One thing was the bowler or derby hat.
Imma just a crazy blogger on a crazy day! Have a good one.
