    Singing like Ronnie James Dio

    I worked on Dio’s crew. That man was loud!! Sometimes when we there were several acts on the bill, Ronnie did his soundcheck last. They always had to pull his vocals back. And effortless. I definitely go with mutant. And unlike some singers he got better the longer he was on tour. They sometimes booked him 4 nights in a row. You don’t see that with other acts.

    I got news from @Robert Lunte that our friend and team member Adolph Namlik passed away earlier this month... This is sad news and I feel we should do something in his memory, perhaps a song with everyone adding their voices, or perhaps those who want to record something on their own could send it too. I will be recording a song if anyone wants to help or collab doing something please let me know. Felipe

    Dust in the Wind is a good choice. Sometimes we get to thinking "There is always tomorrow" but tomorrow may be too late to let friends know how we feel about them. Adolph had been on my mind and many times I started to send a message just to say hello, then, maybe tomorrow will be a better time. I talk to other people about my friends on the forum. I do consider all of you friends. Seeing eye to eye is not what friendship is. It is about being able to not see eye to eye and still want to be a part of the community and the conversations. I will try to add what I can.

    Jens is also in. How you guys feel about making a cover of Dust in the Wind (Kansas)? Each of us record a bit of the song, and then I put it together in a nice way.

    One thing that slips the mind these days is that people expect or want instant satisfaction. Record one or two takes of a song and manipulate the bad parts with electronics. In the old days of recording on two tracks, the band would play along with the vocalist and background singers and there would be a marathon recording of one song with 60 to 80 different recordings. Throughout the recording process they would keep what sounded good and discard what sounded bad refining the song as you recorded. Sometimes in the final product they would splice pieces of several recordings into one master. Today we can do this with "copy and Paste" through the computers. The point is that the more times you record or play the same song, "and pay attention to it", the more opportunities you have to improve it, find out what works and what does not. It seemed to me that the biggest question you had was whether your voice had a good or interesting sound to it. It does. The other things like sliding into a note or nailing the note at the start or maintaining the original melody comes from getting familiar with the song....Singing it so much that it drives your family crazy. But you will know the song and people who are not around you everyday will hear a strong and interesting performance from you.

    Sup, I like the intensity, that's on the right track! So here is what I heard right on the start "A heart on the run" it does not sound very secure, you are sliding to the pitch of the first note, and it is sounding a bit nasal. I would try to make it more clear, articulate the words a bit better, and on the first vowel on heart, try to round it a bit more, a small bit of a yawn might get it darkened and more full sounding. The next point that is rather important is on "raged", it sounds like you were trying to go powerful there, but it didn't quite happen as you intended, try playing with the vowels in there, I would start with eh ", sing it more like rEHgd, and avoid the diphthong (don't focus on the i on *reijd*), after it is more free, you can tune it to your liking (closer to normal pronunciation or super open). This happens through the song, a bit of work on these will improve the quality a lot. Cheers!

    I have never heard the song before, and that is good because I do not have to compare you to the original singer. The songs sounds good to me and I like the tone of your voice. I did not hear any pitch problems. Your voice sounds good and it does have an interesting sound. What makes a voice interesting is how a song is presented and the feeling expressed in it. Sing the songs the way you feel them or hear them. You do not have to sound like the original singer to be "Good"". Willy Nelson and Elvis Presley sang some of the same songs....Willy did not try to sound like Elvis and Elvis did not try to sound like Willy. You do not need to sound like anyone else either.

    That's awesome Ananya keep it up! I am presuming it's your dad that is writing here, so sup mate, listen, there is something off on the guitar, I dunno if its just the tuning or it needs a check on the intonation, it will value her voice even more. Cheers!
