  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Hey hey! New song I finished two weeks ago or so. So, from the start let me say that I'm not a typical singer that I think frequents the forums, in other words I'm really not much of a traditional singer at all and I suck lol. I'd perform absolutely awful singing to pop songs or others where there is a huge amount of skill and years of training involved and required. I'm not a trained singer at all, I just wing it and hope for the best. Ok, so with that said: a few friends have said I have a weird voice and way of singing, just something that's a bit different I suppose. I'm very self conscious about it especially when I hear other singers in alt rock/shoegaze bands. When I hear my singing in comparison I'm like "Oh, that's awkward sounding, sounds like sh*t", yet singing like this is very natural for me, nothing forced (I've tried singing differently and it just feels like I'm trying to do voice acting/karaoke or something). I don't really have any singers that I look up to or have influences, just doing my own thing which makes me feel more isolated and unsure. I'm concerned with making sure the vocals are up to par since i'm stuck with em, that they are interesting, "good" (relative term, I know :p), and most importantly that they at least stand out somewhat in a musically pleasing way. Any thoughts / advice / tips / suggestions / or general comments are totally welcome, good or bad. Not really much vocal effects used other than compression and very light reverb on one vocal track or two. No EQing or anything else, I just try to make sure the recording sits in the mix when I first capture it that way I don't need to mix/process later, because I know nothing about mixing and processing especially something as complex and dynamic as vocals. Cheers!
  7. 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
  8. Hi there, I am new here, and was hoping to get some feedback regarding the areas of my singing that need the most work. I do not have much vocal training, but am generally regarded as having a "good voice". I want to improve the areas where I am lacking (pitch? power? tempo/rhythm? tone quality? how?), from a professional perspective! See my clips here: https://www.smule.com/JeanetteLucie I realize there are a number of clips: Perhaps two representative ones would be Jar of Hearts and Perfume; the rest are less practiced.
  9. Hello Modern Vocalist World! I just wanna thank Robert Lunte for his labor - the secret is revealed. For I was searching, trying, doubting... And finally TVS. So practical, exact explanations, awesome! Here I am singing and playing on this video: Vinni
  10. review my singing

    I have been searching for some good reviews on some original songs and vocals, interested in opinions. https://canadianbearfighter.bandcamp.com/track/found
  11. Hi all, New singer/songwriter, just recently formed an indie/shoegaze band from all of my home recordings. No vocal training or anything, but then again I don't care too much if I sound trained as a "singer" would sound on the radio, and instead i'm focusing on whether or not I sound pleasing to the ears, basically want to make sure I don't sound like complete crap because I have a very weird voice. Here's a vocal cover I did of Marilyn Manson - Coma Black (I know, definitely NOT my genre and I'm not a Manson fan, but a friend said my singing sort of sounded like Manson which surprised me because I thought he was a heavy metal screaming dude, so I youtubed him and gave it a shot the other day to demonstrate my vocal style. All tracks done in one take, no copy/pasting so that I can get an accurate critique on my singing without cheating so that mistakes were captured.
  12. Trying to work on singing on pitch/key....feedback is appreciated.
  13. Hey so i've been singing for about 12 years now never had lessons sadly as i could never afford them. i'm 20 years old and i'm wanting to do music as a career either teaching with gigs on the side or just straight up gigging if i'm good enough for it. I have a few videos on my facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/ConnorSydneyHodgson/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel I ask my friends and family for their feedback on my singing but its always been yeah you're good which is just frustrating because good is never enough and it's not as detailed as i would like to know. i can take the most brutal criticism so dont hold back i really need to hear it! I would like every small thing i do wrong pointing out and advice on what to work on if possible! Look forward so seeing the reviews! Kind Regards Connor Sydney Hodgson

  16. Hey there I have been a musician for a long time, but I have always struggled with singing and its never come naturally to me. I have only been practicing singing solidly for six months now and I have definitely improved, but I have no idea if I am any good. anyways here is a little clip of me singing. I would appreciate feedback. I sent it to my brother and he said it was good, but that when I go higher in pitch it doesn't sound as good. I would appreciate if you agree with his point and how to fix it. P.s i have paid thank you, Ben Jones.

  18. Hello I just need to know if my singing is very bad, or is it possible to do with it something. I do not like color of my voice, when I listen the recording and also know, that there are a lot of mistakes. It was just quick recording, when nobody was at home I love singing, but the problem is, that I am shy, and never sing in public. Only in my car or when I am alone I would like to know your opinion. Thank you very much in advance
  19. Hello, I'm coming back to write here after a long time. I found a lot of changes and I would like to understand better some of those changes. I see that the review my singing area is a memebership area only, But if I try to create a topic I can do it. It means that I can ask to other users to review my singing (as it was in the past) and the membership service is for a professional review, or it means that only memers can upload a link and ask for a review (to other users too...)
  20. Let's see if we can get some fathers misty eyed hahahaha... really beautiful tune with great lyrics and most importantly for me, very easy in my range. Enjoy http://picosong.com/DzJh/
