ronws Posted June 21, 2010 Share Posted June 21, 2010 I've been recording "I Remember You" by Skid Row. I can do the song, even though it is around my passagio on the refrains. I'm actually progressing quite well through it and am comfortable performing it. But I can't get the right sound, recording it. I have long been aware that a person sounds best in songs that they wrote or were written for them specifically. Is it also possible that some songs just don't record right because of the lyrics and the phonation required for a particular singer to do the song? There are times where I have done better on a song because I ignored the original melody line and, usually, went higher to hit a note that was more comfortable, as well as the song chose, with vowels and phonation that were more natural to me. I don't really have to do this song, it was just a lark but I have done probably a dozen vocal takes and I'm not happy with it. Partially due to inadequate equipment. Playing the guitar and singing it at the same time works out well and I could probably get away with it on an open mic show. But has anyone else noticed that some songs, while you are able to do them, don't come out in recording like they sounded when you were singing it? It's funny, I had an easier time doing "Gethsemane" and "Holy Diver" and even "Dust in the Wind," in which the higher parts, depending on phonation used to feel like passagio but I had found a way through it without losing support.
