I like it. What are you recording on, a cellphone? the sound gets clipped, somewhat. Nothing wrong with your singing, just wondering about the recording. Trust me, I have had people say similar things to me. "Not bad ronws, for using a soupcan and string."

I listened. I don't think anything too bad was going on with your voice. I was thinking that something was off though.

I am not familier with the song so I listened to Artic Monkeys. They are only using a few notes on the guitar for their background music. I am thinking that some of the guitar chords were wrong, or maybe you were strumming Full chords when you should have been using just 2 note chords. Perhaps you played a Minor chord when it should have been a Major.

Did you work out the chords on your own or did you look them up on the internet?

Hey, Don, if you can swing the finances or, like me, sell your soul to Satan, ( \m/ ), get a decent usb interface, like the m-audio m-track. I got mine for about $100 USD in Sherman, Texas, not too far from where I live. Basically, an interface that allows live adjustment of output volume and live monitor. Plus, mine has XLR inputs, so, I spent a little more money and got an XLR - to - XLR cable to directly jack my mic's in with minimal line noise (xlr is balanced and shielded.) So, really, all you need is a good usb interface and cable that jacks your mic into that interface.

I found out what was striking me as odd. You have the correct chords for the key you are singing in. You are using a slightly different strumming pattern. Even though I am new to this song I was imagining a different strumming pattern for an acoustic accompaniment to fit that guitar lick.

What you are doing is not wrong only different.

I found an acoustic version of Artic Monkeys. They are playing 1 step higher than you are. They are in the key of Gm. and You are in F#minor.

I'm liking your rocker feel. You picked a song that suits your voice. When you're comfortable with it, it would be cool to attempt the higher range bits of the song! Also, (I wasn't sure if this was a stylistic choice) but when singing, try singing right on top of that note, right through it rather than sliding into the pitch. Hope this helps!

I love this song- I agree the chords are a little weird here. A teeny bit flat on some notes, but I'm just being picky. The slur on your words is a stylistic thing, for the rocker feel, but I wouldn't do it so much so as you lose what you're saying. It becomes annoying to a listener when you suddenly can't discern words. The slur is fine- just don't overdo it.

Anyway, that's all I can think of. You sound fantastic! Good sound choice.
