Hey all, new poster here. This is my first real attempt to record as a vocalist, though I did some rapping in high school.

 

I figured I join in on the fun by recording something light over Felipe's backing track... I only did the first half, so the torture should be over as soon as it begins.

 

Version 2 (I feel much better about this one):

Edit: Had to bring the song more into my comfort zone :P

   Not too bad Real. The falsetto sounded great believe it or not.

 The main thing about the lower part is just being a little too light. Most likely from being the first time you recorded anything.

  Cool. Thanks for joining.

 

  Edit: let me clarify this a little.....You are not singing too light for this song.....those little wobbles were from singing light and not holding on to the note.

I liked it. As good as Elvis' version. You have a great tone and I liked your interpretation and what you did with some of the melody line.

 

Because someone could possibly due a rock version or metal version, which of course, would require a different backing track for instrument timbres.

 

I'd say you should work this up into a full length version.

 

And I can like it because I am not a judge or will decide who "wins" the challenge.

Thank you Ron and MDEW. My speaking voice is quite low and raspy, so to follow John above middle C I'd need to use a bit of volume, which i can't do in my living arrangement.

I tried to use about 30% volume, and the mushy/wobbly first version was the result.

 

I had a window of about an hour today where I could record, so i tried some different approaches. I found one I felt more confident in and posted it at the top. Still pretty light though.

Trust me, I understand. You have to strike when the inspiration is hot, regardless of having ideal circumstances, or not.

 

And I really do like your voice. I am not very much into r&b and Hall and Oates was about as close as I would normally get. And I keep telling myself that one day I am going to cover "Rich Girl," my favorite song by them, Plus, I like watching Daryl's show, "Live at Daryl's House." Watching that, I discover that he is actually more of a blues type of singer, which is cool. And the visiting performer will sing one of his songs and he will sing back-up to his own song. Now, that's humility.

 

One of my favorite episodes of that is when he invited the Neon Trees. That woman really does play the drums with a John Bonham expression and rock-solid timing like Taylor Hawkins.
