Foo Fighters - Walk **Wipes Sweat off Brow**

Hey KTVA fam,

This one was so intense, I was sweating profusely when I was done singing this. I'm sure I'm hitting the distortion too hard, but hot dang was it fun. Also, progress report. I tried messing with this song before and while doing distortion probably about a year ago I couldn't even get through this song. Now I got through the whole thing and am doing a lengthy and quiet cooldown, can't wait to wake up tomorrow and see if my voice is still clean without any mucous built up in the throat from scratching.

    Hi @Mwight,

    pretty good job, mate. Solid pitch besides some small spots here and there. And yes, I would be interested too if your voice is clean and versatile as normal. It sound a little bit strained when you used the distortion. But your were pretty good on rolling in and out the distorted tone. And you came back to a very clean sound nearly seemless.

    I would have been tired, too. :smile:

    Please tell us how it went today morning.

    Did it! I woke up this morning and noticed a little shakiness in my voice. I hydrated, took my time warming up and I can still hit an A5 after doing this last night!

    Yeah this was pretty cool! I haven’t really messed with distortion yet, it did sound like you were hitting it hard. Good thing though that you woke feeling ok so fingers crossed you are doing it safely!

    Thanks you two I really appreciate the comments. I had a lot of fun going nuts on this. And you can bet I didn't touch anything distortion the day after. Think I'm going to give it a day or two before I hit it again, and a bit lighter than what I did here, but hot dang it got my blood pumping right!
