    Thanks guys that's really kind! I tried posting it with the rest of the mix but soundcloud deleted it because of copyright reasons...
    Man, you should have heard me sing about 2-3 years ago... I didn't even DARE to take on a song like that, my range was limited to a E4/F4 on a good day.. KTVA really had a huge impact on me!
    So Kudos to Ken and the team ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    Change the title of it to something like
    Love ktva or something that doesnโ€™t state what it is. You should be able to get it through then. But fโ€™ing awesome

    Very nice!!! I love this song and singing it, but you do it so clear and at such a nice tone and (when desired) power. Very impressive, love it and if you have more i will listen to it and become a fan haha !!

    At risk of by now sounding like some lobbyist i can recommend smule, you can turn vid of and share your link w/o anyone deleting it. (At least i havent had any infringing problems). This is not meant to detract from your awesome rendition but just to show you my last weeks (fun) version on smule and the program possibilities:

    @NickW I'm flattered that you're about to become a fan ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Here's my cover of Watch Over You by Alter Bridge, we did that on the same day:

    I like it!
    Very nice rasp you got there.

    Good job! @Mory_Kareen.
    This is one of my favorite songs to sing all the time.

    @shining Yours too, if you posted it for feedback reasons ;) I'm new to this forum so I don't know if it's all about feedback or not ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Nono.. this is your thread here .. just wanted to show how bad this can be done :D
  • DiegoDiego Moderator, 2.0 PRO Posts: 1,099
    @Mory_Kareen Have you done other Queen songs?
    I'm quite the Queen fan myself.
  • Mory_KareenMory_Kareen Member Posts: 8
    @Diego No I did not yet, like I mentioned this was my first professional vocal recording ever. ;) I've been experimenting with Love of my life, Bohemian Rhapsody, Breakthru, Don't stop me now and a few others though.. Maybe I'll do something like that in the future ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    @Mory_Kareen Yes id love that and yes id become a fan, as @shining can affirm i am a fan of most things queen (not "im in love with my car") and with varying result i sing even the obscurers songs. @Diego may not know but i have listened to his "in my defence" and some others and i am his fan too. We found this queen fan group (#bohemians) a few weeks ago and we do, i believe, cool stuff. Ill give you the coolest example: this group version of no one but you (only the good die young) https://smule.com/p/482426948_3419343908 its not very smooth but 13 people singing with a passion.

    Anyways, love all the songs you mentioned and what you did here, was pleased to come accross it and look forward to your other songs. That (and shinings comment) made my day. The other song you posted above i will listen to right after this!

    I listened to Watch Over You, i didnt know it but it was a very pleasing listen. Your range and tone is impressive, actually the whole thing was, too bad it lacks backing, but i guess that is perhaps beside the point of a vocal demo. Good thing i became your fan :)

    Thank you for sharing!
    Also, as much as id love your feedback, i wouldnt like to hijack the thread like that, perhaps, if and when you still feel like it, send me a PM?

    HOLY MARY!! Great vocal!!! When you go into those falsettosit's amazing and your vocal through the rest of the song are incredible. Whew.

    3 years ago... had you much of a singing background?

    As for SMULE... I checked it out yesterday and isn't it $14.99 a WEEK? That's $60 a month. Seems crazy expensive.

    Wow...I'm listening to you as typing this and that's a masterful performance in my opinion.
  • Mory_KareenMory_Kareen Member Posts: 8
    @Edukator99 Thanks very much I really appreciate this!!
    As for singing background: About 3 and a half years ago I never sang a song in my life, I started fooling around with my voice in the car and still practice 99% in my car. Like I said, I barely hit a F4 back then and worked my way up just by trying to sing songs I liked. Over the last year I had 5 lessons with a voice teacher who helped me mostly with vowels and a bit with range. And guys, I sounded terrible three years ago :smiley: Except for my head voice I'd like to think, I never really had trouble with that.
    It's really just practice, practice and practice again... And of course the right information. Ken's youtube videos were perfect for my understanding of the voice!

    Man, I hope I get there in three years. Amazing.

    You can join all duets/collabs started by others for free.
    And if you are interested in a VIP-Account: after a while smule will show you advertisement for "special offers". I paid around 60$ for a year. Would never ever pay so much money for a month :D

    @Edukator99 If you haven't already, you can also look at Twitch Sings, which is free and requires a free Twitch account to use it. It has the duets that anyone can save or join, you can stream it online if you want for immediate audience interaction, or play it completely privately offline. At the moment it is for PC only.

    Oh, Twitch is now available for Mac OS Mojave. I am downloading it right at the moment.

    It is still beta but publicly available.

    @Edukator99 pro tip: dont buy the subscription in android or app store, but from their website, it's at least 30% cheapers still and it gives you VIP on all platforms, not just on IOS or Android.

    Actually, i just checked and they advertise its 90% cheaper on their own website than via the mobile platforms:
