  1. Hi, I posted this a few days ago, but for technical reasons the post was lost. Robert Lunte already kindly reviewed it, but if anyone else feels like giving me (constructive) feedback on singing, songwriting or recording, that would be great. It's a prog rock piece just over 8 minutes long, hopefully you'll stick through to the end (which was the hardest part to sing due to the challenging harmonies). George
  2. The Game (original prog rock)

  3. The Game (original prog rock)

    An original number by my virtual prog rock band. My singing. As usual, constructive criticism is welcome.

  7. Original Prog: "The Construct"

    All vocals by me. Constructive Criticism is welcome.  
  8. Original Rock "Show Your face"

    Thanks for listening an commenting Robert .   I mostly create the songs with a bunch of long term collaborators, so it was co-written. I created the vocal melody, and about half the rest of the music, but not the lyrics.
  9. Original Rock "Show Your face"

    As usual constructive criticism is welcome .     I'm didn't belt so much on this as a often do on rock songs, and I think its better for it. I did all vocals and guitars on it.   George        
  10. Run to the Hills - working version

    Good effort!   This is a great song, and a hard to sing. I think Jugulator here has posted a super version in the past.    When working on it, it's tempting to focus on the "money notes" - the long high bits. That's what most of the comments are about here.    But... what makes it great is not just those high parts, but the lower part where Bruce Dickinson tells the story. I think that's what you should also work on!   I tried singing it a couple of years back, and struggled a little with the higher bits, but I got a lot out of working on it, and really enjoyed the story telling in the lower parts. Here's a link to my effort - this cover was created from the ground up with a friend of mine, it's not an existing backing track:   George
  11. "Money Maker" - original rock

    Thanks Ron, there are odd times when I hear a bit of Tom Jones in what I am singing. It's not a bad thing.
  12. "Money Maker" - original rock

    Many thanks for listening and commenting.  I thought I was invisible for a few days there!   I think you might be right about the chanting chorus. I'm working on a new song with the same folks just now so I'll take that idea into it.   Yes the EQ is not quite right. The mix process for this was a slog, we had two competing mixes form different folk all the way up to the end..... but I'm glad they did it, rather than me, as it's a lot of work.

  14. Help with Singing on Stage

    shirleydw2005   You have a similar background to me, I take part in community musical theatre show 2 or 3 times a year. I am rehearsing as Wilbur Turnblad in Hairspray currently, showing at the end of May in Scarborough UK. I also have asthma... are we related? I also write (prog rock) songs and record in my home studio.   Anyhow, I am pretty sure my voice changes in live performances compared to rehearsals and home practice, and I don't find that any fun. I also pretty sure some of it is nerves, although I am not consciously aware of being nervous - I feel really cool and up for it generally. I think another part of it is amplification - not being used to the sound of your singing amplified in a full (hopefully) theatre. I earlier rehearsals for the show nobody is amplified and we you have the real sound in the tech or dress rehearsals, and then its different again when the audience arrive and soak up all the sound anyway.   What I have done to overcome the nerves in the last shows it to get out there and do a night or two of karaoke in each of the last 4 weeks leading up to the show. It gets me up singing in front of people in a low risk way, and anyway I only sing songs I know I can nail. This has helped, maybe it also helped with me getting use to hearing myself amplified in a room full of bodies aswell. I have tried to sing my show songs on the karaoke if they are available, if not, some other show songs I know or similar.   George
  15. An original southern rock number called "Hey Bartender".    I did all vocals, plus slide guitar from 2'44 through to the end. All the other stuff is by my friends at     I tried to make myself a little less British and bit more American, but I don't think my usual accent in my singing is all that strongly British anyhow?. By Jove, Tally Ho!   As usual, constructive criticism is welcome.   George
