Like A Stone Cover

Hi everyone, Just watched Ken's new vid of "Like A Stone" and thought I'd give it a try. Would love to hear some feedback as to how I can improve. I didn't quite hit the ending the best I think I could do, but in the interest of transparency and doing a full take top to bottom, I kept it as is. I tried to "lean in" a bit near the end to get a bit of grit but I can never quite get it to really grit up, it just gets brighter/tinnier so I don't think I'm "leaning in" correctly.

    The main thing Notice is your support wavers a bit on some of the longer notes so you lose a bit of pitch. Keep it engaged through the entire note so you can hold it solid and steady. At about 2:50 on the 2 alones, try to not rely so much on your mask and open up your throat to get a fuller rounder sound, project it from further back. 3:55 till the end was pretty much spot on, awesome tone and control, shoot for that level and you're onto a winner!

    cut those low frecuencies, the most interesting thing about vocals are the mid high parts (specially noticeable at the start of the acoustic part. singing is fine, most of it.

    Thanks for the tips! I do notice too that I can get pitchy on long notes, idk if it's just me anticipating the next phrase and not supporting the current one or what, but I'll have to work on that. I notice I have some issues targeting the start of the pitch, especially if it starts with a consonant so I should work on adding soft "h"s to some of those to get more control. I'll work on that stuff, thanks!
