I guess this would go under performance....

I've been working a lot on my voice lately, and everytime I play an open mic or gig, I feel like I sound ok thruogh the monitors and people tell me I sound good. But, when I record and critique myself on the computer using one of those computer mikes, I cringe. Could it be the mike, since it may not pick up all the high and low end, is the problem? Or the acoustics of the room? It's hard to build confindence if you think you suck half the time..... ::)

Also, when I practice, I sing and play with a little bit of power behind it, and gain a pretty good balance between the instrument and my voice, but when I step in front of a mike, I feel like I hardly have to make any effort for the vocals to sound fine, but it doesn't have the edgy sound I'm trying to get. What I'm asking is, how do I find a good balance between vocal volume and tone in relation to the guitar when I play live?

Thanks for your help!

I get this feeling too... no effort behind a mic... but it sound different...
I will simply practice BEHIND a MIC... and try to get that sound... try attaching a mic to your guitar amp... its fun!
