My name is Steven and I am from Berkeley, California USA and I am an amateur singer. I have my own home recording studio. I use Reaper as my recording software. I download my background music and then I sing to it and have lots of fun doing all kinds of cool stuff with it!
I am currently recording music in the style of Karen Souza. I am a Baritone, so I have to make a few adjustments to the original song which can get a little too high notes for me and sound like ....... Yuck!
Here is the song 'Every Breath You Take' I have highlighted the phrases that seem too high to be comfortable for me and so I would like to make a smooth transition downward in notes vs. upwards as the original goes, but, I would just like it to be smooth and to begin going down in the right place. I don't want to break from the original tune too much, but, I could use some suggestions of what to do here so that as I sing the song as a Baritone that it sounds smooth as if it was meant to be that way!

Every breath you take Every move you make Every bond you break Every step you take Ill be watching you Every single day Every word you say Every game you play Every night you stay Ill be watching you Oh, cant you see You belong to me How my poor heart aches With every step you take Every move you make Every vow you break Every smile you fake Every claim you stake Ill be watching you
Since you’ve gone I been lost without a trace I dream at night I can only see your face I look around but its you I cant replace I feel so cold and I long for your embrace I keep crying baby, baby, please...
Oh, cant you see You belong to me How my poor heart aches With every breath you take Every move you make Every vow you break Every smile you fake Every claim you stake Ill be watching you Every smile you fake Every claim you stake (sing 4 times) Ill be watching you
