You did a pretty good job on this song. Your pitch is good. Your support could be increased. I'd like to hear your voice a little higher in the mix.
All the Best!
Nice job with the wide intervals. Smooth.
It's subtle the way your voice keeps improving over time, but you're definitely getting better all the time.
You are sounding better than ever. You have been practicing and doing what you need to do, and it shows up in your demo.
Keep up the good work.
I can hear improvements in the timbre of your voice. You sound a lot like Cat Stevens on both of these tunes.
Cool! Thanks for the update.
You sound very confident in this tune. Very accurate and nice compression.
Yes. Try with a smaller breath. Estimate how much you need to do the scale or line in a song that you think you need, and no more. If you don't get enough, use that information to adjust how much you need.
Taking too much air creates too much pressure in the lungs and makes you want to blast it all out too soon.
Experiment with trying to estimate just how much you need. When you have long notes or long scales coming, take a little more air, as needed. No need to overfill your tank. It's wasted energy and more difficult to control.
forget what I said earlier. here is the actual video

This is a different placement for your voice. Much different from the baritone-based sound you've used in most of your other videos.
Sounds like you're getting comfortable with this sound. You have to be a little more careful with your support in this smaller sound.
You seem to be venturing into the zona di passagio... home of the mixed voice.

Two different speeds here. First is a Tom Jone's classic, "I Who Have Nothing" http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/c5983e8c9Second is Josh Groban's "To Where You Are" http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/c3adf2e91In both cases, having fun on the high notes.Dude.... this is SICKENINGLY awesome... holy hell.Nice nice! GREAT JOB!!!!!!!
okay, next time I will try to get my band to cover peace sells again on my phone and then I will try uploading it to youtube instead of facebook. @highmtn
@overdriveisclassy, "Yes to challenges!"Nice job of bouncing between the baritone lows and the mid voice. You're getting a good balance in both configurations. Your singing, dancing, and fan-holding partner is doing a good job as well, and you two look and sound good in unison and fan-holding. She's got you beaten in the ballet realm, I think.: ^)Bob
I'm hearing a lot more air in your voice than I think you should be using. It doesn't sound bad, but it's not good for overall vocal health. A little more cord closure and bright tone would help that.
On your higher notes where your voice gets loud, you should apply more support to keep your voice at a more even level. It will get a bit louder, but if you hold back your air more on those notes, it will be a better end product.
You should try to get your tongue a little lower in your jaw.
The other thing I noticed was your chest rising and falling on most of your breaths. You should use ribcage expansion, and keep your ribcage suspended and expanded throughout most of your singing, with only a few spots between phrases where you take a quick break and then quickly resume that posture. Most of your breathing movement should be in your abdomen.
You had the camera too high or too close to give me a glimpse of what you are doing abdominally while you sing. That would be helpful in future demos.
You have good pitch and an interesting tone to your voice. I think you will do well as you continue to work on your voice. Work on that support. It's your friend.
here is a better song I did, this is another dream theater tune I worked on called "Fatal Tragedy" from Metropolis pt 2 (Scenes from a memory). I may have messed up a little bit with the first part and maybe my chest has moved a little bit sometimes when I am taking my breath. I think this sounds good though and I thought I had some good support because I didn't feel uncomfortable with my singing. but anyways, some feedback from you all would be great and I will continue to work on my voice. I am almost to volume 3, which is the nitty gritty to perfecting a song.
@SteveK alright but I have one question. How do you change your status to pro?
highmtn : Thanks for the advice. You are the best ;-)Tommy
