    Welcome @adl149 to the Forum.

    Had a listen to you 2 songs your are at a really good starting point, noticed more covered sound on the lower notes on "In The Ghetto", are you going to do the course? if so think you would greatly benefit in all spects of your singing, tone, range, agility and stamina.

    Theres a great bunch of folks here to help you through any issues that arise, Ken has some free tutorials in the mean time, I would recommend you try them out they will improve your voice but the main course is awesome.

    Nice to have you here.

    Hi @adl149,

    a warm Welcome also from Germany.

    Nice job on these two songs. You already earned some singing skills. Personally I would try to uncover the low notes a little bit and work on timing to make it sound even better.

    The free stuff is great. A lot of students started with the free videos to check out if the course could work for them.

    @adl149

    When we sing very low notes it can sound flat covered, we learn to compensate, partly with good open throat and practice it takes time accomplish.

    Hi @adl149,

    for us at KTVA "covered" means "darkened", "closed" or "a little bit operatic". What do we mean by that? - You bring to much weight into the sound. You sound very manly and are really go at imitating this great "Elvis swagger". It is good that you are able to do so. But you should also be able to sing the this song in the style of a Singer / Songwriter like, let's say, Paul McCartney. How would Paul sing this song?

    For me, but that is only my personal opinion, you could brighten up these low notes a little bit. If you do not you will always sound like someone that sounds like Elvis. And ... I am real Elvis fan. The Vegas Shows (August 1970) are absolutely amazing. There, he is the real Elvis.

    Thanks for your reply.I am also a big Elvis fan and i agree that the Vegas 1970 shows are great. I wish i could do Bridge over troubled water and Just pretend.Maybe its years of listening to Elvis that has affected the way i try to sing.What do you think i should try and focus on to improve.
    Thanks
