Is my singing okay?

Think you can't sing? Think again. Can you hum or sing the pitches as you tune your guitar? Can you sing along with your car radio? You can? Great! Now we know you can sing. It's good to get that out of the way. Come on in and wail away.

Is my singing okay?

I think certain parts come off to screechy (even though it is Rock 'N' Roll)

hey. not bad. no one can sing like Plant, but your cover is on track. your pitch is good. good energy too.
add some reverb to the the vocal track to sweeten things up.

I agree with dogbite. I think you have a good voice and a good ear for pitch, but that song is really tough. Especially a solo acoustic version.

I agree w/ Dogbite. Plant's my absolute favorite. I'd give my right arm to have half his voice! Do you have anything else to listen to?

I do have more videos on my account, but they're really old and the sound quality is not nearly as good. I'm going to be making a new account that'll feature both originals and covers so I'll probably do more Zeppelin once I get a camera set up. I'll probably end up redoing the song just so I have an actual video of me singing it.

very nice. now, add some reverb to the vocal track and it will blow folks away.
I found in recording that reverb tends to soften any harshness in the voice. also, it expands the feel of the recording.
you mix is too dry.

I think you're a good singer. Maybe not the best song selector. :D

Yeah I agree. The thing is is that I have no idea how to work my recording software so I'm trying to get my friends to help me on how to mix it and stuff.
