  1. I have been learning to sing for two weeks so far. I need a little help figuring out how to make my voice sound better. The song I am singing is panic at the disco Time to Dance.
  2. As I've mentioned in other posts, I've been taking lessons for a few months with an opera/musical theater singer, and I've played a whole lot of different singers I enjoy for her to hear her opinion, and I find it interesting to hear the impressions of someone from a different world and different sensibilities. I thought I'd compile all the ones I remember into a collection because I was also curious to hear reactions: Chris Cornell: Disliked. "He's just screaming in the one part. And his high notes are very thin, but he puts all the scream and effect on it. If you heard it without that stuff it would just be a very weak sound." Bruce Dickinson(Iron Maiden): Disliked. "Sound is thin, poor technique on higher notes, badly produced vibrato." Dio: Unimpressed. "Again, just a thin tenor putting some effect on his voice." Warrel Dane(Nevermore): Liked. "Good control. He's making a choice on every note." Eric Adams(Manowar): "One of the best sounds of all the singers you've played for me. But still a thinner tenor voice." Mike Patton: Liked. "Nice voice, clearly knows how to sing. But I wish I could hear his natural sound more instead of all this 'put on' stuff he does." Tarja Turunen and Marco Hietala(Nightwish): "You can hear both these people know how to sing correctly, they're just doing some weird things because that's the style I guess. Forcing the straight tones is making her sound flat, and she knows that, but she still does it." Devin Townsend: "If I were his ENT doctor, I'd love him, because of all the money I'd make form all the damage he's doing. He has to be on steroids to be doing what he does consistently. Either that or he's just a freak." Eric Clayton (Savior Machine): "Completely different from the other stuff you've shown me. Sounds like a regular baritone stage voice." Daniel Heiman (Lost Horizon): "Not bad. He's doing some of that weird stuff again, but he sounds good otherwise." Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy): "Oh God, that's a woman!? I can't listen, it's too painful, she's ripping her vocal chords to shreds." Phil Anselmo (Pantera): "I guess it's...kind of like singing." Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest, Iced earth): "His voice will probably last a bit longer because he knows what he's doing and being very controlled about it." Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth): "He's got a nice voice." Mikael Akerfeldt growling: "There's no way he's producing that sound naturally. Either that or he's doing it very quietly and it's made to sound much bigger."
  3. Singing Improvement and training

    Hi All, I have created a YouTube Channel on which I plan to upload acoustic guitar instrumentals to help fellow singers train and improve their singing skills. Looking for feedback and suggestions. What do you guys think? Link to the latest video:
  4. Hi to everyone! I've been reading this forum for a couple of years now and always found it very interesting and helpful in dealing with some of my own issues, so I thought I'd post this project that I've got going on. For a long time, I have suffered from vocal tension and inability to sing past D4 without pushing the "chest voice"/ overly-engaging the TA's basically. However, in the last year or so, I have experienced great relief after starting to do falsetto exercises suggested by Anthony Frisell in his manual "Training Baritone Voices". After reading many other sources later on, I have started questioning the usefulness of voice classification, purely from psychological point in the beginning (belief that one is a lower voice and its effect on the voice and singing), but now also physiological (neglecting upper range), especially in contemporary music (pop, rock, jazz, music theatre...). So now, I am writing a dissertation on the validity of voice classification in contemporary music and have already got some interesting answers. However, since there is barely any research done in relation to contemporary music, I would really be grateful if any of the members here, who give voice lessons, would participate. This is the link if anyone is interested: Thank you and feel free to spread the link if you find it useful! In general, I would also love to hear your opinions on this. Do you think tutors should classify their students and why?
  5. Hey! I decided to come back here after really long time. Some of You may remember me from my duet videos, but life is life and I'm trying to do something on my own now for some time. Could I get any feedback? Any criticism? This video is a bit old but I think it's one of the songs I feel most comfortable with If someone like it or think that it's worth it I would really appreciate subscribtion on my channel, it means a lot Cheers, hope to stay here for longer period then last time!
  6. HI:) I'm searching for a female vocalist and the author of the text to pop music project (something like Imany). Here is a link to an outline of one of the tracks
  7. Beatles final concert. Aug 29, 1966 Candlestick Park Revolver had just been released 3 weeks earlier. They were burnt out from touring. Of course they continued to make studio albums with a little help from George Martin. Just up ahead lay the summer of love and Sgt Peppers

  10. Hello everybody ! Here a quick cover of "man in the mirror" of MJ , recorded with ipad . I wanted to have some review of what you think of my version , and some advices to improve my singing and sing it better. I am high barry but not tenor so the song is played 3 half step down, the original pitch is too high for me .
  11. Hi guys, yesterday I had some free time, so I just recorded this one for practice. Please let me know what you all think and also give me some pointers to improve it. Cheers
  12. This was a contribution to the "Legends Lost" thread. Glenn Fry passed earlier this year. I found an old microphone while searching through my things and thought I would try it out. I am not sure how I ended up with it. It turns out that this is an Electrovoice 635A. An interview microphone used by reporters and such. I was using a Shure PE50 super pro(sm57 and sm58 were based on this) and I am not sure if the vocal improvement is from the Microphone or if Lessons are starting to pay off. Anyway I can tell a difference in the sound from this effort and songs recorded a week ago. Any comments welcome good or bad......improvement is the goal. I am aware of the harmony being flat in the final verse. It was getting late and time to stop. Still a major improvement from other efforts.
  13. I submitted this in the Challenge for BeeGees. It is late. I am tired, but wanted to post something. Be kind, this is a work in progress and a little to laid back to be effective

  17. Hello ! I am a 18 years old piano player. I've been playing the piano for more than eight years and that's something I really enjoy despite my many injuries, thanks to it. But nevertheless, I won't stop. I also have another hobby : I really enjoy singing. It feels so comfortable and it pleases me a lot. Singing has alwyas been different, even if I can't sing "properly" (according to singing technique standards), I'm still to enjoy it and I do. I've always noticed that unlike the piano, I'm able to feel what I sing (I'm French but speak English obviously and understand the meaning of every shing I sing) and how to say that... get into the song, let it flow throw me. I sound horrible but yet, I know I've given my all ahahah. That's something I've never achieved with the piano... Feeling the song. That's sad but I guess it'll come some day. I'll never be a star and I don't want to. I want to learn singing for myself (even if I must admit... that'd be great not to sound like a duck whenever I sing with friends, for fun) because as far as my music side tells me, I've gathered two problems : A very nasal voice (I guess it's because of a poor (inexistant) breathing training something I know is very important to singing) and I just don't know when my singing is right. I never know if it's too high, too low but I guess this problem doesn't carry on with training. I've come here to ask you guys if you had stuff for me so I can learn how to sing... correctly ? I mean... being able to sing without a nasal voice and to sing in tune (hitting the right notes) ; After that, maybe I could go further but let us not get lost. I like to enjoy myself even more! I've got a piano available 24/7 so if you've got things that involves having one. I do. I've got a little music ear. I can recognise notes but I can't play by ear for example. Anyway, I hope you'll find something for someone as beginner as me ^^ Thanks a lot
  18. Any and all feedback welcomed, had to drop the key on this one considerably to be able to do it comfortably but still spotty. Thanks in advance for the time.
  19. She's a new up and coming artist. Her name is Julien baker and for the past couple of days, I have been obsessed with her. She's got a great voice, great melodies, great lyrics and one day she'll be my wife because duh. anyways.... take a listen she's a real gem.
  20. Hello guys I am curious to know what singers have demonstrated vocal longevity without losing voice quality. Who are your favorite artists that consistently have sung well for at least 20 years? For me I must have to go with Celine Dion and Stevie Wonder. Please include clips of the proposed artist if possible.
  21. Just want to know if I should keep singing or give it up? (Singing) ---->
  22. Hi, I am looking for a male singer who can do modern metal style vocals (screams & cleans) with an ability to record at home to complete a side-project I am doing with a female singer. It is more in the modern/mainstream vain, along the lines of, but not limited to, Within Temptation, Amaranthe, Nightwish etc. There are 10 tracks so far, fully produced. Here you can listen to snippets of 4 tracks : Many thanks Than
  23. What do you all think of Beyonce as a vocalist? She seems to have excellent control over her instrument. My only gripe is the clavicular breathing with the audible inhalation. Here are a few good videos of singing for you all to analyze: What do you all think?
