Sounds ok, but your phonation or singing is so light and under supported its hard to judge it on anything, its almost vapor. You need to get some vocal fold compression and get some muscle online... You need to train. What program are you training with?

Ok, Thank you so much for taking the time to listen.

So should I sing louder? I don't what phonation, under supported, and vocal compression is.

And I have no program. My family can't afford one.

Lastly, did you get my email I sent you?

Thank you

Sounds mostly in tune so that's a great start. If you get some 'diaphragm support' this will help you alot. Just search on this forum and you'll get a ton of stuff. I have a blog post on this which may help http://singersvoice.wordpress.com/2012/06/16/breathing-from-your-diaphragm-and-support-explained-simply/

Get the basics underway and post back in a few weeks

Robert's right. You're undersinging, and that's causing a bunch of issues. You also need to work on diction and vowels, but without proper support you'll have an uphill battle.

An easy way to begin finding your voice is to laugh loudly. A nice boisterous laugh, known as a guffaw, will create a brilliant, ringing tone with great support.

An easy exercise involves transitioning from this type of laugh into a sung tone... the laugh is the voice at its most robust.

Try it and you'll find that it's a lot of fun to do. It's a nice singing shortcut.

Does under singing mean that I sing too dull and quiet?

Would enunciation fix my diction and vowels?

Is support pushing out the lower belly and sticking it out as you sing?

Sorry for all the questions:) I'm a beginner.

Ok, Thank you!

I feel like my pitch is always way off.

How do I fix pitch? Is there something I need to do or think?

When doing scales on my guitar, I can hit near the pitch.

But when listening to a instrumental, I have no clue what pitch it is?

pitch is easily affected by tension, which is why those singers that engage in tension based techniques always have pitch problems.

Drop me an email, my address is below, and we can continue our convo. I'll be happy to help.

Nothing to add. Just liked the tagline in the sig.
