  1. Hi All! I'm not sure (I might be tone deaf), but my singing is mostly on key, but something is a bit off? I'd just like some feedback if possible to get me in the write direction to a killer voice. Thanks everyone!
  2. So I have always been into singing but have never had any formal vocal training. Chris Cornell was my favorite vocalist and his recent unfortunate passing reinvigorated by interest in singing. I have always been fascinated by how full Chris sounded in his head voice/falsetto, assuming that's what he uses when he goes high. I tried to sing Cochise by Chris Cornell. I am unsure whether this is what Chris does, since, in comparison to him, my voice sounds very thin when I go into my head voice. I would like to get some feedback and hopefully some pointers about what I am doing right and wrong. Cochiseaudio2.mp3
  3. Just wondering if there's anything I can do to improve my performance of this song, thanks in advance!
  4. Dear all, It has been a while that I have visited this forum. I have been very busy with my studies—having completed my BA in Musicology and currently finalising my MA in Applied Musicology. I did keep on working on my singing, however. Yesterday, “The Music of the Night,” a song that I auditioned with at the Conservatory of Rotterdam over a decade ago and that I had used for my singing lessons with many different teachers, was one I had never actually performed—until now! Indeed, there appears to be balancing issues with volume between me and the piano. On the other hand, I asked several attendees whether they felt there were problems with it, but they all did not notice them live. While I do think we could work on balancing our instruments, I believe the recording is augmenting the issue quite a bit. I am really satisfied with the performance—especially my acting abilities, intonation, enunciation, and stage presence. I could be more confident with the fermata notes just doing them as long as I want, rather than thinking I might do them too long (I think the “soul”-note [2:32] is great, the “be”-note [3:44] is just about right, the ”night”-note [5:20] is executed pretty well, but could easily be five seconds longer). I could also definitely stabilise and pronounce my “ring” more. Manolito Mystiq
  5. I've been meaning to post this to get some feedback on where I can improve my live technique. This was taken one of my bands live gigs last summer. If you have a moment, please take a listen and let me know your thoughts. Thanks guys 'n' gals
  6. Hello! So I just recorded 2 tunes (first takes, lots of mistakes, but i just wanted to record something) Im looking to sing with my band and would like to know if im on the right track (since this is a type of register i've never used in a live/public setting so i dont know if the vocal placement for these songs is correct). These songs are somewhat outside my singing comfort zone and what we usually play (in terms of vocal range and registers), but i would love to expand my repertoire. To give an idea my most demanding song right now is toxicity (SOAD)(with some chest pulling here and there). I've been a musician for 11 years but only been singing for 5 years now, and only had proper vocal training for about a year (not currently) mostly focusing on pitch, correct breathing, chesty high notes, etc... but nothing of this kind, so there is this desire to get into these types of songs. Also, the "technique" im using for both songs feels (in my throat) the same to me, but it somehow feels more suited for the high notes heard in the scorpions tune, than in the skid row one. so I would love to know (if someone can give some input on this) why do i get two seemingly different results with the same technique? Feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you Jesse
  7. My song passengers was a quick filler song for my EP "Blink of an Eye" but has turned into one of my biggest "hits" being extremely popular at live shows. What are your thoughts on it?
  8. Hi, My daughter is 9 yrs old, likes to sing, she tries her best to take part in any singing opportunity that she gets. I would like to get some valuable and honest inputs from experts here about her singing. what can be done to improve here singing ability and voice quality. What kind of songs should she be singing when it comes to competition / performances, specially the songs that can increase her chance of securing better position in singing competition. Looking forward for your valuable inputs. Thanks, Avinash
  9. Hello I just sang this in a karaoke bar yesterday but i didnt receive any applause. I wonder why because in my ears i sound good.
  10. Hello I sang this together with a karaoke song. I tried to not use chest voice in this. Sounds kinda bad?
  11. Hi, so just recorded this clip (No rain)(sorry for the quality, im traveling right now) but I want to know if im using the right technique, and if this is any closer to a good mix voice. Of course, a lot of things to work on regarding the song, but I'd like to know if im on the right track and what should I improve or work on for those high notes. At the end of the clip I also did a small comparison between a very nasal tone and a cleaner tone. Im not sure if this nasal tone is the right way (+ diaphram compression) to get a good distortion for heavier songs? Finally i also attached another clip (Paradise city) which is basically me playing around with this nasal tone quality to see if i get a good result. Thank you very much! cant wait to be singing these songs live:D

  15. Hi, Looking for some feedback. With this song I constantly have the feeling that the singing is not under my full control. .This is the ~18th take over 2,5 hour period, my challenge was to get this song without major-screwups done in one go. Do I need more energy? Less energy? Am I overdoing it? Is it simply too high for me and should lower it further (I'm already down 3 semitones from the original)? What about the overall tone and emotion, does it feel to have a connection with the song? These are some of the questions I have. Thanks!
  16. Looking for critique...
  17. Hello I'd like you to judge my voice. Never had training but I sing for myself for 6-7 years, I like it but know my voice is amateur hehe so I've never sung in front of audience. Write what is bad. Maybe something is good. I must make a decision. If my voice is decent, I will do training. If my voice is awful, I won't waste time for singing, will give up and find new hobby.

  18. review my singing

    I wanted to get feedback again on my improvement. The song is an original.
  19. I thought I'd post an official review my singing thread for my new EP "Blink of an Eye" available on all major music platforms. What are your thoughts? What do you like? what do you not like? whats your favorite song? iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/blink-of-an-eye-ep/id1208272015 Spotify
  20. Here is an A Capella recording of me singing pop and then a more rock style song, I also threw some random scales in at the end which is my current range, My lowest note is G2 and B4 is my highest comfortable note, highest possible one I can do with strain is D5, and only once I hit an E5 which surprised me when it came out! - http://picosong.com/rurW/. Recently I've been working on pitch by practising scales because it used to be really bad and now that I'm beginning to improve at hitting notes I am unsure what to work on next. When I listen to myself back sometimes I think it sounds more like talking then singing. I would appreciate some guidance because I can't stop singing now that I've begun, and I want to save peoples ears in the process. Thanks!
  21. Hello. I'm mostly a producer and a instrumentalist. I've been getting frustrated lately because the music I produce needs vocals but I can't really sing that well and don't have a very good ear for vocal production. I would hire a singer but I dislike the idea of having to "piggyback" on someone else's voice just to release music. I would hire a voice teacher but I'm a broke college student at the moment who can't really afford consistent back to back lessons As a result of all this I'm trying to learn how to sing. I have an ear for pitch from playing guitar & piano for years. Not so much for vocal tone though. Sometimes I'll sing and even though the pitch is right the vocal still sounds bad. What is the cause of this and what can I do to fix it? Here's some examples of me singing. Theres a cover included but it has background music so the "clyp" links you can hear my voice better. https://clyp.it/epxev0rq https://clyp.it/kh1b0wj1 https://clyp.it/tcepueha https://clyp.it/he2ygiwb
  22. Hi all. I took your advice from the last time I posted this song and made some improvements. As far as vocals go, I tried out your guys' suggestion and screamed/yelled the final chorus (Sounds like I summoned my inner Kurt Cobain) I've never screamed/yelled while I sang before, so it wasn't easy and took a few takes until I was semi-satisfied with the performance. Any tips on how I could improve that and make it sound even better? Also, the song in general is more dynamic as the previous review stated that the song just was lacking change and excitement, so I added louder and more distorted guitar parts, crashing cymbals, drum fills, drum drop outs at the bridge, etc. Just in general touched it up and improved it on a second run through making the song more aggressive to better reflect my bands' more raw and heavier live sound. If it can be improved further, let me know! Cheers!
  23. Hi all, So yeah, I wrote a new song. Been very creative lately. Anyway, this one is very personal to me and wasn't easy to write but I needed to finally do it, it's about losing someone I loved tremendously to drug addiction, severe depression, suicide. This is my way of coping with it. I haven't talked about it since to anyone, I almost couldn't even finish the song and literally cried after I finished it. I'm so happy I was able to do this and do this song. Since this song is very special and emotional to me, I'm REALLY trying to capture the emotions through my singing, and let the listener feel what I'm feeling through emotion and lyrics combined with the music. One thing I'm doing that I've never done before is yell singing? I don't know what to call it, I usually sing very subdued as you can tell from my earlier stuff, but the chorus line "I watched as you slowly blew away, I watch you, as you just drift away" was the most important to me, so I layered it with singing louder, and at the last chorus I full on yelled almost all vocal takes. I REALLY wanted to capture something emotional, raw, where you could hear either the pain, anger, or something in that yell but I don't think I nailed it. Please tell me how I could improve that yell at the end, and if any other parts of the singing are off or not "feeling" right for what this song means. Thanks guys/girls.
  24. Hi! Here's another song, my most recent that I wrote a couple of days ago. Same vocal concerns that I posted in my previous recent thread for the song: (All The Good Things) that post explains in more detail my concerns and everything, basically just concerned about the vocals because I'm a new singer and a new songwriter. Any thoughts / tips / criticism / advice / or anything you'd like to add would be highly appreciated! The song gets a bit repetitive after the bridge, I wrote the song in about 3-4 hours and just got lazy and impatient. Definitely going to change the bridge to add variety/dynamics.
