I guess I'm just looking for a straight "singing ability" opinion. I don't know anything about effects/mixing. Someone suggested that I post here because this section was pretty active. Again, really just trying to get feedback on any singing ability that may or may not be present. thx
Your version sounds like it could fit in with the old Coen brothers movie, Oh Brother... (that would be a compliment!! )
Everybody can sing. If you can't do what you want, then practice at it. Singing is just like anything else in that regard. My wife said she never had a musical bone in her body, yet she started violin lessons and did okay with it.
Your voice has an interesting timbre and sound. I think there's a lot to be learned to improve the sound, dynamics, etc which a decent voice instructor could help with, if you wanted to move from a 'talking' style to singing. Just my $.02
cant fault your performances (i listened to 3 twice each) 6:30am here and your music fits the bill perfectly
playings great,vocals are great,performance great
the recordings are good enough to get your point across .. could carry on as you are enjoying what your doing,dunno but i think you`ll lose some of the intimacy if you started worrying about a better recording interface then mic placement,EQ,room e.t.c (after all,your not making this for cork sniffing home recording guys)
Cohen Bros "Oh Brother"..one of my favorite movies so, that is indeed a compliment. I appreciate everyone's time. My goals are no to lofty...I just want to be able sing decent around the campfire. I think I have made some improvement but I also recognize there is room for more.
