I just did an awesome guitarist/songwriter clinic last Saturday, with Sean Kelly (Lee Aaron / Nelly Furtado) and Derry Grehan (Honeymoon Suite)
During the collaboration workshop, I was working with Sean Kelly to develop a new song on the spot.
He loved the hooks and riffs I came up with and helped me with some progression/transitional stuff... and then it happened once again! He actually stopped me and kept complimenting my voice
Truth to be told, I am just really not used to this sort of thing, and it is freaking me out a little...
I feel like I am only now, just barely able to do what I've been training to do... so I don't feel its deserved. Having said that, it makes me want to get better and maybe someday to be worthy of that sort of praise.
I told him about this program, and he said he's heard great things about it.
So there you go, it would seem that the proof is indeed in the singing!
