Disregard your brother's opinion, no matter how much you respect him. Concentrate on practicing.

True story, Dimebag Darrell stunk at playing guitar. At first, he spent more time posing than playing. But, between the ages of 13 and 17, he hid in his room trying everything he could. And came out of a guy that changed the shape of heavy metal.

Be the Dimebag of singing. Don't look for compliments right now. Don't look for validation. Look for exercises and time to practice. Shut out everything else in the world except becoming the most awesome singer, ever.

so? what things should i do to get better? i also wanted to know how you felt it about it

You have some pitchy spots, here and there. Your breath support is fairly non-existant. Most of that is from trying to sing the same way that you speak. Don't do that.

The singing voice is a musical instrument, not one of "reciting" poetry or stories, even if the song is telling a story. Think of the singing voice as an instrument, like a flute or an oboe.

Stick to these vowel sounds. Ah, as in father. ee as in cheese. oo as in moon. oh, as in go. eh as in eggs.

The note lives just behind the sinus, always. Regardless of pitch, regardless of where you think you feel the "resonance." Head, chest, all that is just sympathetic vibrations.

My redneck mantra:

Motion, when necessary, in the abdominal muscles.

Note in the head (behind the sinus, not through the nose.)

Nothing in the throat, ever. (no undue strain or effort.)

Inhale by letting the stomach relax. Control the exhale when singing. I have posted this song in another thread for pretty much the same reason, control the exhale. I do this long note without taking a huge breath before hand. I just breathe in normally. But control the exhale. That is breath management, some call it breath support.

"Live Like You were Dying" by Tim McGraw


And when you sing, quit trying to match what you think the original singer is doing. Sing the song the way that you feel it.

Like this:

"The Cowboy Song" by Thin Lizzy


I am not an expert or the "best" singer. I just sing, and so can you.

What a fun song! I'm following you on soundcloud. I love your voice. The only thing I would suggest is to line up the harmony a bit better. There are a couple spots where they are a bit off in the mix but the vocals sound great to me :-)
