I sang Take me to Church on an app today. I have a terrible time memorizing lyrics and the way the lyrics play on the app throws me off. I need to memorize the lyrics. But I struggle. I could not sing the high part of this song as easily as I can now. Although it sounds like I am straining (maybe I am) I can do this all day long now. For some reason I saw a singer, Sam Ryder, and I noticed how he moved while singing and it made something click. It looked as if he was using his whole body to ‘push’ or otherwise place notes in the correct place. I tried it and could sing the higher parts of
Please, tear me apart with criticism. This is a new thing to me, very new. I can’t tell if my playing/singing is really fine or if my friends are trying to not hurt me. I am 40 and don’t have time for false positive comments. I always thought I couldn’t sing so fee months ago I started singing in my car. Tried to get better. I also spent a year learning guitar by myself 30 mins a day, 3 days a week, in my car until covid hit. to myself I sound good but I guess that is typical. I also cringe when I hear some parts of it. Anyhow, 2 minutes of your time. ThNk you for helping me out.
Hearing this song for the first time can you depict an image of the singer? Do you think he is a professional or amateur? How long do you think he is been singing and playing guitar? How is his guitar playing? How old do you think he is? I sometimes do this for random artists I’ve never seen and then look them up and see the differences. Anyhow, what do you think about this cover? How can you tell?
Thank you so much. I will work on that. Yeh the guitar seems to really get into my voice as well as, at times, it seems like there is a second voice but this is straight from the voice recording app so it must be the guitar notes. Again, thank you so much for your time and suggestions.
Could you please give me feedback on this song? I am not even a decent guitarist and I am trying to learn singing. Playing and singing comes very hard to me. Anyhow, am I in tune? I can’t really push more air through because I live in an apartment and can only practice late in the evenings and I am self conscious about that. The song is not mine and of course the singer sings it way better but, I am trying to learn to play and sing and trying to find a decent range where I sound ok and can hit highs and lows. I think this octave works for me but need your help because I can’t tell if I
Wow MDEW, I had no idea that’s how they did it back then. Sounds grueling. Nowadays things seem different and, with softwares like Melodyne, i recently realized all the songs out there are corrected to perfection before making the final version so it can be daunting to match the voice I hear in a song without using softwares. I really dislike using any sort of filters but I also noticed that without reverb I sound really very bad and it makes me not want to sing. So I add just enough to make my own voice it tolerable to my ears and everything else has to be improved by technique Thank
Thank you so much MDEW, you make a good point there. I guess I am trying to sound like the original singer to make sure I can sing the song instead of going around my limits and adapt it to my voice. I am taking it as an opportunity to measure myself and gauge the improvement if any. But I do agree that I should eventually sing it with my own style. I really appreciate your answer, your support and your tips. thank you! Thank you so much Felipe! Ironically, I focus so much on the higher part if the songs I sing that I tend to haphazardly sing the lower parts just as a filler for th
If you are not interested in my boring premise skip to #2 to listen to me singing Jason Isbell’s Cover me up 1) Premise. I always loved to sing but was always very bad at it. I mean, I could never hit high notes and, even the lower pitched songs I though I could sing, when I asked people what they thought, they didn’t think I was as good as I thought I was. They were nice in telling me but I could tell they were being nice. So, I never delved into it. Now I am 40 years old and about two months ago I started singing in my car during my lunch break. I downloaded 2 apps, Erol Si
