Hi! I'd love some feedback on my singing. I'm quite new at this but I'd really appreciate any advice you could give me on what I'm doing right, wrong, and in what direction I should take my future practice.

The recordings are in 3 different genres as I'm still trying to figure out what my voice seems best suited for. I mostly listen to classic rock and "alternative" music, and I worship Axl Rose's vocal magic, but I learned everything I know so far from Brett Manning. Please give a listen and tell me what you think!

In the mourning

Lonesome when you go

Jigsaw falling into place

Many thanks for your comments!!

Sounds cool echo, Lonesome to me sounded best also.

I dont think that is so much about style affinity. To me in that song you are more secure of it, as in simply, you just know it very well.

A pleasant voice that, in my opinion, you should nurture by seeking a teacher and trainning technique to bring more of your voice out and consolidate it.

GL!

Thanks so much for your feedback! All your suggestions are extremely helpful. Could you point out the specific strengths and weaknesses in my voice I should be focusing on? Power/breath control and diminishing strain on higher notes are what I already have in mind for improvements.

Very nice. I especially liked Lonesome when you go. You have a contemporary tone to your voice, and in my opinion is marketable. Just keep on working and correcting the kinks. You are still young.

Good luck!

P.S.

Regarding your last question. I think if you perfect your breathing and support, everything else will fit in to place.

Correct me if Im wrong guys :cool:

Hey bro, I figured that out 10 or 20 years ago, when I first heard the Eagles on an Oldie station. Pretty soon we will hear all our old 80's hairband faves on an oldie station.

I think its going to be pretty funny having to explain why these dudes dressed up like chicks to our grand kids lol

Breath and support will allow everything into place and release tension from building, where we normal have the tendency to choke off the chord - thus strain for the notes.

Keep your shoulders relaxed and back, breath from the stomach and not the chest (when you take a deep breath your shoulders shouldn't move), take a breath after each phrase and gently push down on your diaphragmatic muscles at all time to keep them engaged -- of course the higher you go for a note, the more you need to push down on it and keep your rib cage expanded (lungs 3/4 full).. this will help with the tension.

Even the issues mentioned above, they were slight and not really of much concern -- but you did want critique...

solid performance all around.

Don't let anyone mess with you.. You sound great and I just listened to a few phrases of each song..

confused about your statement here Daniel... who and in what way are your referring?

This is a review and critique my singing section and her performance although very well done, was far from perfect.

Actually, David, Daniel is a professional singer. He gets paid to sing, In front of people, in various degrees of sobriety and inebriation. More times than he actually gets paid to teach singing. In fact, he has already given away so much for free, just in sharing the love of singing.

If I were echo, I would listen to Daniel. Here's the magic pill. Find out what successful people do. Then, do that.

And don't forget the pink cowboy hat. (inside joke, sort of. You'd actually have to watch one of Daniel's instructional videos to know what that means.)

So, if I had a model for singing professionally, it would be Daniel. However, my cowboy hat is black, and a stetson, like the one that Clint Black wears. But I still think I can make it work.

Haha... Humm... now you are confusing me... Daniel didn't provide any helpful information, but just made an open ended comment which I inquired what it was about...

He may be a professional singer, but that doesn't mean anything, as anyone can be a professional singer if they like, even if you sound like peewee herman.. It's just a title given to someone that sings for a living - good or bad...

I've heard him sing, and read his previous comments in other threads, and he is talented and knowledgeable - but I'm only referring to this thread...

Haha thanks guys.. I really appreciate all of your input. Both David and Daniel, your guidance is extremely helpful, in very different ways. I did ask for what I'm doing right and what I need to improve on, and you've both given me just that, so thanks! I 'll do my best and welcome any more listens/input
