    It's kind of distracting how much the different clips have different recording qualities. Some clips are clear and others are very harsh. It's important to learn consistency and have that be part of the sound throughout the song.

    @highmtn How so?
    The voice doesn't sound clear?

  • I can't speak for Bob, but it seems like your voice was fatiguing toward the end of the verses, and in the beginning of each verse your voice sounds fresh. That creates a big contrast leading from one verse to the next. Just try smoothing the transition a bit when you punch in your vocals in a non linear fashion. (I sometimes do the same thing if its a demanding vocal)

    I do notice that you are getting better, but I would still like to hear you add more weight to the sound of your vocal because you still sound a bit too nasally. I get that you may have to sing that way at the moment until you get better control of things, but yeah, sounding a lot better these days.

    When are you going to break down, and get into this course? Within a year you could be a dynamo singer.

    Peace, Tony

    Thanks a ton for the feedback @videoace.
    Thanks, I feel like I am getting better as well, this was definitely one of the more challenging songs.
    What do you mean exactly by adding ''more weight''?

    And hopefully I'll get the course soon.

    By more weight I mean to sing with more of a mixed voice than all head voice. Get some of that chest sound in there with it. I'm sure you feel the sound more in your head than in your chest. Try to balance the two for a more broader heavy sound. It will take some time to figure out, but like everything else here....practice, practice, and more practice.

    Peace, Tony

    Thanks a ton @videoace
    How hard would you say this song is?
    What's the note at 3:44? And does Steven Tyler have a good technique?

    Steven Tyler has a very unique voice. I can't give you all the tech details, but this song in particular is hard to sing. For me anyway.
    You ask if he has good technique? He's been singing since he was a kid, and still going strong so......

    I've tried singing quite a few Aerosmith tunes, and so far "Remember (Walking In The Sand)" has been the hardest.
    I would say that his best vocals were done in the 80s when they all went dry (no booze, drugs)

    And those screams are like :open_mouth::open_mouth:
  • This is one of my favorite Steven Tyler vocals. Nothing too fancy, but a lot of sustained notes, and emotion.

    He has some nice clear sustained notes. What a monster!

    Here is a new one I recorded. @highmtn @videoace I focuse on getting some of Steven Tylers way of phrasing the words as well.
  • That one definitely sounded better, and sounded like you may have even had a little fun doing it.

    You still have to watch those punch in's with your vocals. The best way to transition into a punch in is to sing the line before you come in also. That way your throat will be hopefully in the same position as when you stopped the previous vocal. Make sense?

    Peace, Tony

    Does the it sound ''heavier'' or still a bit too nasal? It will take some time to perfect this song truly, as there is only one steven Tyler.
  • DiegoDiego Moderator, 2.0 PRO, 3.0 Streaming Posts: 1,145
    And yes @videoace you are correct, I had a ton of fun doing it.
    Getting to sing this in a similar style to Tyler's is pretty darn fun,
    It was also fun to see how everything fits together, and now I see why this song is hard. But I had to go for it.
  • You weren't nasally this time, but your vocal is still pretty thin sounding. You still need to bring more chest into it.
