Am I using the right technique?[Singing demo]

Greetings everyone and Thank You Ken Tamplin for approving my request to join this forum.

For a long time I am trying to find the right way to use my voice for singing since I don't have a natural born talent of having the spirit to sing. I have been practicing writing songs on guitar and did some training on the voice as well.

Here are 2 short demos of me singing without any instruments, recorded with a phone with a short distance from the mouth so It doesn't buzz when singing louder. I would like to hear some professional review on my technique if you may be kind enough.

I am 25 years old and the only reason why I still try to learn to sing is because I like to play guitar in my free time so might as well become as decent as possible in singing too.

    Hello! I think you have a pleasant tone.

    pitch is a big thing to look out for in good singing; since you did not record over a playback, it is not possible to hear how that works for you.

    have you done the free tutorials on youtube? you can definitely already get results from them if you do it regularily. if you are interested, I can help you with setting up a routine (the one I did before I started the course, which convinced me that Ken's methods work, so I bought the course shortly after).

    regarding reviewing your technique, almost everyone who is not a properly trained singer always needs more support, and needs to use less air. the same goes for you (and for me too). it comes with practice.

    Thank You for replying. I watched some tutorials of how to sing from diaphragm, high notes, breathing exercises etc. When I play guitar and sing it sound in tune but I just wanted to hear some opinions just on my voice. For example if someone asks: Can you sing? Sing something now. If I do that I want to know if it's good and pleasant to the listener.
    I need to see when I will have time to do these kind of things cause at the moment I am studying in uni so Singing can't be my main focus...

    it sounds definitely good enough that you are safe to sing for someone if they ask you :)

    the thing is, the more you learn about the voice, the more you realize there is always room to grow and get better, no matter how good you are. and to not lose whatever you worked up to, you need to keep doing it. even Ken is exercising daily (not sure if he actually has rest days).

    if you can't do full time, do whatever your schedule allows for, the more the better obviously. but as long as you regularily focus on singing, the better you will get, as long as you do the right exercises... the free YT videos are a great start. the forum is a great find for you, whether you end up doing more or not

    Hello Everyone just a short update: https://vocaroo.com/6DlsjBndVD0

    I tried something new with capo on 4 and I realized it's the best choice for my voice for any song in general.
    I struggled a lot trying to do everything I can do make all songs sound good in standard without capo on guitar but the truth is, it's quite impossible. hahaha
