Sometimes, no news is good news. :) There have been a few times I posted a cover of a song and never received one single comment. Not "Good job," or "You stink, please for the love of all that is good quit making that sound." Not " more blah blah here, less blah blah there." Nothing, nichts, nada.

A few times I posted something that in retrospect was quite horrendous and I let it die a quick, merciful death. Scars heal best when one doesn't pick at them.

Good song choice and you have the right voice for this song. But I can hear tension and it is making you pitchy. In the first part, the high line is pitchy and the low line is okay. In the middle part, the high part is good and the low part is pitchy in spots.

Other times, you are on pitch, so, I don't think you have a problem with pitch perception. I have heard much worse, where a person was not only not on pitch relative to the music but had no sense of interval between notes, through the entire song.

I think it was a matter of not committing to a sound. You sounded unsure of yourself. If you think you will fail or do not trust your own interpretation, you will falter. So, stop doubting yourself. Re-record this as if you actually wrote the song. And sing it the way that your voice sings, not how the original sounded. For example, I think you could sing stronger than you do in this song. So, sing this stronger because the holding back is making you stiff.

The smile you have in the avatar pic on your link? Do that smile when you sing. Not because it's a nice smile but because it will retract the soft palate and allow a better, shinier resonance to your notes, especially the higher ones.

Also, though I say don't hold back, that means don't hold back on the volume. However, do hold back on the air. Don't push all the air out at once. You want a balance of air pressure, vocalizing, and the resonance of the note up in the back of your mouth, behind the soft palate (that soft part of the roof of your mouth.)

I do like the emotional intent that you have in this song. Just a few little things to tweak.

Thanks for your response! And I'll definitely take everything into consideration. You're spot on when you say I'm doubting myself. I'm just not sure if I have the talent. And I feel like I try too hard to make sure I'm hitting the notes and I guess that's where it usually falters. Again, thanks so much for your critique. I will try again when I have time to, and post here again.

Most definitely, you have the talent. You have the "feel" for this song, and I think you have an emotive feel in singing, in general. Again, I think the few wobbles you have are from doubting yourself. "What if I go to loud here? Will people not think it's like the original?"

Hogwash. Sing it strong, as only Vucifier can. For Vucifier wrote this song. That other guy (the original singer) just happened to have recorded it first.

I am waiting to hear the lion that is Vucifier roar.
