Hi Gneetapp,

Nice job Smile

It's a bit odd because I listened a few times trying to find a reason for what I found wrong but couldn't. I think your voice and tone is good. I can tell that you can sing. However I found the whole song very pitchy. I heard it at the start but thought it would pass and then I heard a good note and said."ahh there it is" when suddenly it went off again! The song wasn't that high so I don't think it was you straining as it seemed easy enough to sing. I think it may just be a matter of practicing and matching pitch. Sometimes even using a guitar tuner helps. Your voice sounds good and you were in the right key but the pitch was all over the place.

Thank you so much for the review Tommy. I totally agree with you regarding the pitch man. I think I had a hard time trying to sing on pitch because of lack of practice before recording, and also lack of support or focus. I think the higher parts of the bridge were even worse (at least the first one), although I was just really excited to be able to "reach" those notes (using reach in a loose way). I will keep practicing when I have time, and will definitely improve this song. Thanks again man!

I know what you mean.
I've had so many songs that I loved to sing and have recorded but was later sorry because the higher parts were a stretch. I could hit the notes but they sounded strained. There is a difference between "hitting" a note and "singing " it. I no longer try to impress with range and runs but rather with feel. Then again, my musical preference is a bit more mellow so it's a bit easier. Smile

I now only go as high as is comfortable and although I practice to go higher I still remain (when I sing) in my comfort zone. I've been working on "Higher And Higher" by Jackie Wilson and it is just right there in my range but i won't sing it live because it is ...like I said. "right there." But it's good practice none the less as I try and workout the notes and postures involved.

I can totally relate to that, man! Even with this song, two days later I was able to sing well most of the parts I screwed up in the recording. There is definitely a huge difference between reaching that note and singing it with a musical quality. But I don' t get frustrated, I'll just keep working on it whenever I have time.
Cheers

not bad. freakin soundcloud though....blows your eardrums and im looking all over for the volume control lol

the one small thing that stood out to me was the line 'and I didnt'. To me each time that line sounded a bit "muffled"....like maybe you need to get a little more into headvoice to give it some "cut". I struggle with that same thing...evident in some of my songs. Its not that you cant hit those notes etc, its more of learning to shift into that gear on the fly

Peace, JJ

Man JonJon I'm so glad you said that about soundcloud being loud. WTF? I thought it was just me and not knowing how to control such things while recording. YES! sound cloud makes everything louder!

Well im mainly saying the clip starts and its blasting your ears and you are fishing all over the page for a volume control...which evidently doesnt exist lol. by the time you resort to your laptop volume, your ears are bleeding

Hey JonJon, great to see you here buddy. Thank you so much for listening and taking the time to write something, it means a lot to me. I agree with you regarding that "and I didn't...", I always thought it sounded weird, I just could say what it was. I thought it could have been the fact I was losing the beat every time in that part. I'll keep working to smooth everything out. Cheers

I have similar issues...shown in numerous of my recordings. I tend to be sort of 'curbed' in general because thats just how I sound lol....the "mask" resonance is something I am working on but I sort of have to use it on purpose, it doesnt automatically resonate. So then when I do go to push something with some power or range it sometimes comes out sort of muffly. Like I say, its on several of my recordings but im too lazy to find examples lol

Hi JonJon, I totally understand man. I think I do the same thing with the curbing. Just recently I started to practice (when I have time to practice) singing keeping the sound/vibration in the mask, and I am so excited with the results. I'm getting this shouty quality, still thin but stronger than my pure head tone when I use twang. Cheers
