    Very interesting. This is one of the only times I would encourage someone to use just a hint more consonant. It's a great example of singing without the consonants. But we do want to add just enough when we have practiced the vowels, to that words like "crawl" don't sound totally like "awl". It needs just a hint of a small "c" to come together. The same is true for other words that were without consonants. But you're doing a good job. Is that you on some of the guitars, too?

    Hi Bob,

    Yes, I agree the consonants need boosting. I hear that, but decided to go ahead for the other aspects of this recording.

    Yes me on all guitars.

    Nice work on the guitars. I don't think you overdid the effects this time. Others might disagree, but I think it was tasteful. I'm just wanting to hear the consonants to clarify. Not much, but enough to where I know that that you've been Down since you began to crawl, as opposed to own ince oo e an oo awl... You're doing exactly what you should be doing to get ready to add the consonants back in... in fact the best I've heard anybody do that. If you can hang on to what you're doing with the vowels and add the right amount of consonant, it's going to have a very cool, unique sound.

    Thanks Bob. This sounds real positive - like I'm starting to get it.

    I'm sorry I had to miss out on hearing your recording. There's no link for me to see. I just wanted to add,.........NEVER QUIT! Just when people are about to break that barrier, they quit. It's sad. I know so many people who can't hold a tune, are jealous of those who can and try to discourage those who can, to quit :( !! Hopefully, I will get to listen to your recording soon. Thanks, Scott

    Thanks for the advice Scott!

    Yeah, this song was pretty much a break through for
    me --- after almost quitting .

    I took the track down, cause it certainly wasn't perfect. And I like to give other people space for their stuff.
