woah. not bad
Try this on for size
Everyone gather around for a good ole fashioned campfire song. This is a tale of love, loss and one brave raccoon.
gang violence is bad mmmkay
Would like to hear this with a better mic
ukes are fun
The fact that so many books still name the Beatles "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success: the Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worth of being saved.
i am so bad at accordion it's not even funny
well, it's pretty funny
great job. I haven't heard that song in a long time but your rendition scratched the itch
this song is called Lovesick
I'm gonna go ahead and embarrass myself for the sake of learning something.
In this link, I'm playing Needle in the Hay by Elliott Smith. I've been playing guitar for 3 years but I'm not very experienced in recording/producing etc. and I kinda just used Audacity. I THOUGHT I figured out how vocal-backing works, but I don't like the way it sounds because the chorus really just kinda stands out above the rest of the thing.
Any way I can make this sound less awkward?
here's some soofjahn
This is pretty rad.
I like it. Nice groove goin at the beginning there.
It really didn't sound bad. Obviously if you intend to do more stuff like that find a better DAW.
oh my god lost my shit, idk why but i was not expecting that. qt voice too, u secksee grill
it's a hard song to sing, so i'm not a fan of your voice... above average guitar though. 7.5/10 (idk why i'm rating shit, i'm a judgemental bastard i guess)
that song is out of your range bruh
you and this guy >>50574219
(5.25/10 btw) are playing stereotypical "guitar" music. no me gusto escuchar
and the answer he gave you is incomplete hoenstly. any DAW is good enough to make actual studio-quality recordings if you know what you're doing. equalizing, mastering, balancing, etc. are all things you need to consider and become proficient at if you want to be a good producer.
it's really fucking hard to learn on your own. some people manage it but it's probably easiest to just take a class
Here's some Fleet Foxes I recorded a couple days ago. Probably shouldn't have drenched it in reverb.
that's nice and all, but not very music related
>i'm not a fan of your voice
Fair point to make. My falsetto is much too weak to match Soof on that song.
I can't really tell since the guitar is so loud but your singing voice sounds really breathy. Use your diaphragm more, let the power come from your chest.
Yeah, I just meant that audacity is really clunky to use if you wanna start doing more complex stuff, at least for me.
yeah still not digging your voice. no shame in seeing a vocal coach if you're srs... your guitar skills are good enough to go public, but your voice is holding you back. it's not horrible, and you've got potential, but i hate it
Nice little folk song here. I've posted way too much shit here so this'll be the last.
Uhm, sorry? I didn't say I was amazing or anything, I just never get to play music to anyone other than myself anymore. If at least a couple people hear it in stuff like this it gives it some kind of a purpose. You don't have to listen m8.
You've got a really strong voice that could sound really great when refined a bit more. Keep going at it.
> but i hate it
Hah, thanks for the honesty. I actually do have a bit of technical training from choral singing in high school, but I certainly understand you. Still try to work on it most days.
You the guy who sang Something? Good job again.
Thank you guys, I really appreciate it. I've been practicing and listening to music and experimenting with my vocal range.
Also considered going for my university's choir. Do you think I have what it takes?
>Also considered going for my university's choir. Do you think I have what it takes?
Certainly. Did it all throughout High School. Being in a choir in a choir is fun and can teach you a lot of great things.
So I'm trying to learn how to make my vocals better, but every time I try it just sounds angsty and shite. My voice just doesn't have the same ring that other vocalists have, nor is it unique or have a distinct style. I'd post a vocaroo link but I'm really not comfortable enough with it to share, does anyone have any ground advice?
It really doesn't sound that bad. You're a bit off pitch a few places, but that's also a pretty tough song. Don't worry about sounding angsty or anything, it really doesn't at all, just work on nailing the melody. Also like >>50576468 said, take it easy.
if i could play like that, i'd be playing at coffee shops all fucking day. nobody really wants to hear people sing but that guitar is fucking nice to listen to
Try to sing a bit "lower" if that makes any sense. Not lower as in pitch, but use more of your chest rather than your throat when your trying to force the air out. Just take it easy and make sure you're hitting the right notes.
I was one of the lead vocals on Ghost, and you can faintly here me singing the horns melody on The Fool. They were about to use my version of Two Headed Boy until that Johnny Cash sounding motherfucker came along.
I'm still really proud of the fact that they kept my whisper at the very end of the album.
Okay, I said I wasn't gonna post anymore, but I forgot I did this and just found it on my computer. I think I'm morally obligated to share this again.
Nah, I think trying to cover the vocal part to Sloop John B when we were covering Pet Sounds is more autistic. I'm still pissed that project fell apart.
that's not very nice.
>that's not very nice.
pic related, to both of you
I'm a shitty Big Star fan. I've got all three(?) but I've only gotten through the first album. GREAT GREAT band though.
iirc on Bound 4 I did uhhhh top vocal, bass whole way, vox drums, separate vocals, and then that UHUH HONEY were all separate lol
I guess this will be my last post tonight. Gotta be up early. I hope you guys enjoyed what I posted tonight. If you dig it I'll post more sometime. Here's one final ukulele cover I dug out. I put some real work into the solo so I hope you enjoy it :)
