And I have decided to try and pick up singing. I can NOT sing well right now. However, like most of y'all, I've realized that it is very possible to develop this skill and to in fact sing well if we put in deliberate, intentional practice to become better.

I decided that before I would start, I would get some professional recordings done of me singing right now. That's for a few reasons:

1. I wanted to have a good baseline of where I'm at so I can compare myself in the future
2. I figure that when I do re-record myself in the future, I will probably do a professional recording and I didn't want my comparison to be "compromised" if my first songs didn't get a professional recording. If I'm going to truly compare my results then I need to hold as many variables constant as possible.
3. I wanted to hear myself do a wide range of songs. What I would consider a range of "soft" to "heavy". This is because I'm not really sure what my "style" is at the moment and I want to have a baseline across multiple types.
4. I have never done a professional recording before and thought it would be fun!

I still feel terrible for the guy who had to listen to me belt out six songs. He even did the professional treatment after I was done recording which meant he had to listen to my voice multiple times! Poor fella.

Anyways, I'm posting them here, mostly for posterity's sake. I don't actually recommend anyone listening to them! I'm just trying to keep myself accountable and to show that, if I do improve, I was pretty awful before I began KTVA.

    Welcome to the KTVA course from the UK, a great choice to forward your singing venture. You will improve greatly with the techniques learned here, take your time on the volumes dont race through I was on volume 1 for 7 months and volume 2 for 7 months, everyone progresses at different rates.

    Plenty of friendly help here when you get stuck on anything, or want to post progress demos and try to avoid singing songs at the start it can slow progress.

    Welcome Aboard

    Vocality :)

    Hi Jordan, @jahammo2,

    a warm Welcome also from a mate from Germany. I came from absolutely nothing when I started KTVA 1.5 years ago. You should keep these recordings in safe place so you can compare your new recordings to where you came from. If you put in the work that is needed you will be blown away.

    Nice to have you here.
