"Faithfully" by Trine, a recording that I am embarassed to post, but I do it to learn.
Instead of being perfectionistic and post something that I am satisfied with, I do the oposite. I post a song that I feel I don't manage to sing properly (yet), so that I can learn and improve.
These are the issues that I would like someone to adress:
1. Technique. I know the support is too weak. What else is there to work with?
2. Hoarseness. Sometimes after singing, I become hoarse, perhaps for a week. This was the case after I sung this song. I had been singing for 2,5 hours when recorded this, it was around 2 a.m. and I was thirsty, but I just continued to sing without drinking. Very stupid.... Except from dehydration, is there anything I am doing wrong thechnically in this song that can cause hoarseness? Am I pushing to hard on the high notes, using too little support? Or is it just dehydration?
3. What am I doing at the highest parts of this song, in the second verse: "two strangers learn to fall in love again"? On "fall", what kind of voice am I going into,- is it head? Should I have tried to be more "chesty" here? I think I sound too weak at that part.
That was about all that I was wondering about. I feel I sing this so bad, but I welcome you to listen anyway.
Thank you in advance,
