    hi George, nice to hear from you, and good to hear you are still on it! good work, your tone has improved a lot. your pitch is still a bit off here and there. are you still doing something like the better pitch exercises regularly?

    best wishes, Klaus

    Hey @Klaus_T

    Still doing the execises on vol2 at the moment, done quite a few takes prior and fatigue may have played a part. Not currently doing the better pitch exercises at the moment. Did notice after posting off enough to notice slightly.

    Kinda annoyed wanted a polished performance which was unfortunate.

    Hi, George @Vocality

    Love the song you picked. I echo the comments from Klaus. I absolutely love your tone! Still love your vibrato too. Just need to nail the pitch down. It is great hearing how much your voice has improved.

    Hey @Mysti

    Thanks for listening went back to the better pitch exercises @Klaus_T recommended and continue with ear training and other pitch exercises. Its great you hear alot progress and no doubt will get it down. When I listened the next day could hear the parts was slightly off.

    Many thanks for listening and feeding back.

    George

    Like to add a little to this post revisited the song checked can't believe started off this on the wrong key few steps lower than it should have been, no excuses messed up and it's all apparent to see. Gonna correct this make sure its rock solid!!! :D

    Yeah, you have a good tone for sure. I think that is harder than pitch...in my case. But as you have noted now as well, your pitch is where the work is needed.

    Thanks for listening my voice has grown with all the regular training and practice over the years. Confident to get this song down with a bit practice the song deserves. Underestimated the difficulty of the song, sang it again and it did sound much better but want to spend a bit longer on it!.

    Good to hear you’re still singing, George. The two major things I can hear that will strengthen your singing are better breath control and pitch. Perhaps to help with pitch, you could sing over the original vocal track and try to match it. As far as breath support, ensuring you’re taking a big enough breath and holding it—like you’re underwater, as Ken explains it—will help. Additionally, don’t get lazy with your diaphragm. Hold support until the end of the phrase before relaxing and taking the next breath. Keep at it!

    Good to hear from you again hope your doing well, many thanks for your input take both points on board will focus on breath part its too easy to get lazy where support is concerned. pitch app on the isolated vocals from the backing showed where I went wrong but i did notice after listening back pitch was not right at the start. Will reinforce concentration on breath control and support.

    Getting alot good feedback about my singing in general from many different people must be getting there now!!!
