Hey All!

It's been yonks since I've posted in these forums - I'll get around a few posts today and do some critiques, can't wait to see what you've all been getting out :)

Check out my cover of 'Domino' - it's an acoustic version recorded live - we used a very nice little Behringer set up in the middle of the room, different setup to how I'm used to recording but I think it worked okay.

Let me know what you think!

Oh yeah - didn't talk about what techniques I used!

If you check out the last chorus, I played around with some slight rock distortion on the higher notes. I've been working on this for a while now, I posted here a while back asking tips for a rockier tone and I think I'm finally starting to get the hand of giving my voice a little 'edge' without damaging it.

I also use a few melisma runs - I tried to keep them short just to add a little 'polish' the the ends of phrases. This is something else I want to work harder to really crisp up.

My throat sounds a little constricted because I was kind of playing around with a different, harder tone. I'm not sure I'm happy with this, I prefer the more open, free vowel sound used in some of the other tunes on my Soundcloud.

Anyway I'd love to know what you guys think about the result...
