    Hello there

    I stumbled upon this forum and it seems very useful, ive been a member of a few songwriting forums for a while but this one seems great on a technical level also

    I am wondering if you would have time to critique my latest recording?

    And dont worry , i do understand how forums work and WILL be taking the time to listen to and critique others

    Thankyou!

    WOW stickboy that is a great song!
    Now is the video of the actual vocal track or is it a lip sinc for the video?
    Clue me in on what you used etc. for the recording.
    and where are you from? what else do you have?
    keep up the good work

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    Very good X, was all of it in the box or did you use out board gear?
    Microphone selection and processing?

    WOW! great results with minimal equipment. So only 1 or 2 tracks at a time. very impressive. You have a lot of hits as well on your myspace looks like your doing good and you should expect great things in the future.

    Marvelous!
    I thought the intro was a bit too long. You only get 7 seconds to hook listeners, online.
    Came across as a bit muddy at first (needed separation?) but I'm listening on the family PC.
    Waltzed along quite nicely though with lots of ear candy to keep me listening and enjoying.
    Your vocal style is that of a person who has his "Chops".
    Great stuff.

    Now: Get a haircut!

    Yes: I wasn't listening on the best of speakers.
    Recent studies have shown that now that most listeners are getting their music online, the average listener will make up their minds in the first 7 seconds before moving on to the next song.
    That's how long you have to grab their attention.
    Cheers ♫
