I didn't like your singing I'm sorry to say but that might just be my opinion.
User avatar #21770 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Thanks for the feedback anyways :)

What about this one? www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVYgAAYFfqc

This is a bit different I think :)
User avatar #21773 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
That's a whole heap better I'd say but still not amazing. You're just going off a little bit every now and then. Do you do vocal warmups? That could help solve that issue a lot.
User avatar #21786 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Thanks! Yes I know :/ I still don't have much control over my voice.

Nope I don't do any! On that day it was pretty early and I just recorded it once, I hadn't done any singing before. I don't really know of any warm-ups honestly.

I'm going to music college this year and i'm going in for my voice so i'll hopefully improve a bit more then! Thanks a lot for the constructive criticism though, you're the first person to just tell me they don't like it, much appreciated for the honesty :D

And why, may I ask, is the second video much better than the first? :)
User avatar #21793 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
Vocals are harder than people think and it isn't easy to control. If you don't know any proper vocal warmups then simply just sing a song or two at a low volume and don't strain your voice too much. I'm sure you'll improve at music college.

And no problem, I wasn't trying to cause offense or anything with the criticism. It's just if I said "Yeah great perfect!" then that isn't helping anyone! Don't get me wrong though, you're still very good :)

And I just thought that your vocals were hitting the notes a lot better and you were singing with a bit more power and confidence than the first one.
User avatar #21799 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Yes vocals are very difficult! The hardest instrument i've tried my hand at for sure :P I certainly hope so! :)

Exactly! :o I mean I KNOW I screw up quite a bit, so when someone tells me it's perfect, I know they're either lying or just oblivious to the mistakes :P Thanks for the compliment :)

Ya, for that song I relaxed much more and let my voice flow out rather than trying to push it out I guess :)

Do you sing yourself? You seem to be quite knowledgeable on the topic! :P
User avatar #21800 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
I can't sing myself, but I spent years trying to teach myself to sing (still trying) and that's the reason for that. I've read all the books and done everything but take lessons as I can't afford them. But I'd give anything to be able to sing!
User avatar #21802 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Awh I can't afford them either! It's only thanks to getting past the auditions for this college that I get to do them now :P

And are you a boy or a girl? They're two different ball parks when it comes to vocals really :)
User avatar #21804 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
Haha, good luck with it then!

And i'm a guy, but I constantly feel like I'm a born vocalist with the wrong damn vocal cords.... Lyrics are just constantly popping into my head and I write them down but I cannot sing for shit...
User avatar #21805 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Oh I see! That is rough alright :/ What exactly do you struggle with vocally then?
User avatar #21807 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
My voice just sounds horrible and I don't sing in any sort of key. As hard as I try, it's just not happening :/
User avatar #21810 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Well if you're singing accapella then it's gonna be very difficult! Have you tried accompanying yourself with another instrument?
User avatar #21811 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
Yeah, I've tried with my guitar and it's not a whole lot better but it is still better. I'm focusing on playing my guitar for now and I might start a band when I'm confident I can play decently :P Then I'll just get a vocalist who can sing to sing my lyrics
User avatar #21812 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Haha, it sounds like you've got it all sorted out then! :D That's a great idea though :) You could maybe even work on harmonies then!
User avatar #21813 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
Haha, yeah I'll manage with it I guess!
User avatar #21814 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
What do you play? :)
User avatar #21815 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
Guitar, but I'm only really a beginner at it. I spent so long trying to follow my dreams of being a rockstar singer that it never occurred to me that I could learn an instrument. I never considered that being a nobody guitarist is just as satisfactory in terms of musical expression. Until a few weeks ago that is and I bought my guitar and started to feel like I was contented. Fame is irrelevant (although it would be nice) because at the end of the day I'll always be a musician playing from the heart in whatever I do. Whether I'm playing music around a full time job or whether I'm a world-famous rockstar, I'm still going to be me expressing my feelings through a musical tune
User avatar #21816 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
That's pretty cool :) Ya, I love to just try every instrument so I can experience as many mediums of music as possible :D

And what kind of music do you play? :)
User avatar #21829 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
Haha, thanks! Good luck to you too! :)
User avatar #21827 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
Ran out of reply space!

And I've already talked to a few guys, I know a drummer and a bassist but we need that ever elusive vcocalist! :P We don't really know anyone that can sing! So probably a few months or so to get used to our instruments a bit more. I've only really just picked up the guitar but we're meeting up and just jamming together so we pretty much HAVE a band, we just aren't playing yet haha!
User avatar #21828 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Oh I see! That's great progress :D I know though, a vocalist of any respectable standard is VERY hard to come across :/ Anyways, I wish you luck on your hunt! Keep practising :D
User avatar #21818 - fukkendragonite (08/06/2012) [-]
That's very admirable, I'm not musically talented, I just have the passion for music so I wouldn't be able to do that!

And rock and metal music, but not the toneless racket! Clean electric guitars and clean vocals!
Something a lot like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su3SSOco7Gc or this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaB_c5-u2qs

User avatar #21824 - paradoxfag (08/06/2012) [-]
Ah I'm not really either, I'm just and get-up-and-go kinda guy so I try everything haha :P

Oh I see what you mean, that's pretty sweet! And how long do you think it'll take to get the band together? :)
