Yo!

I guess it's just you and me dude...lol. Well, then unfortunately you'll have to put up with my non technical reviews. I liked it actually and your pitch was much better. One or two spots were off...I think one at the very end of the song; but much better than the last song. Now, like I said, I'm not much of a "technical" guy and can't explain things in fancy terms but if I want to be real picky I'll tell you what I thought. Maybe one of the vocal know how's will chime in and help.

It sounded a bit like it may have lacked a little support in spots. Even singing softer or lower needs control and support otherwise you come to that spot where the end of a phrase fades off or strains. But the main thing (for me) was I kind of felt like you were singing with a smile...if you get what I mean. Some of the vowels...especially the "E" as in the word "feel" and a few of the "A" vowels, in my opinion would have sounded better a bit more rounded. Actually I think the whole song would have sounded better if it was sung with a bit of a rounder sound. I believe this is Coverdale singing this? Listen to his take on it. The vowels are a bit more rounded I think. Not so much of an "EEEE" sound on words like "feel," and other vowels like the "O'" on the word "sound"...things like that. Minor adjustments...and it's only my opinion. Others may disagree so no big deal. I think your sound may have been a bit pinched. But again...I'm not really the guy to say. Overall I thought it was good but a bit rounder sound may have made it more solum and bluesy. Like I said...no major flaws, just small possible adjustments.

Nice job

Tommy

Hi Tommy, thanks a lot for another review! I think I was singing with a bit of a smile when I recorded that song. I may try to round my vowels next time. But bear in mind that I was not trying to sound like anyone but myself. I was trying to pass some sadness, and didn't attempt to sound beefy either, so you would get more of my voice. Thanks again man, I appreciated it!

Thanks for taking the time JonJon! Dude, I don't recall doing several cuts in this one. I think it was mostly one take or two. I can check it on my computer when I get home to make sure. I think I messed up the 2nd verse because I didn't know the lyrics and was reading/singing them, and the worst part was probably the "see you standing near...", where I think I missed the beat. I glad you liked it man.
Cheers
