Welcome to the forums!

Comments on my singing please?

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.

Hello, I would very much appreciate some opinions and comments/advices on my singing (Its my acoustic version of Stand by me by Oasis, you can also find my version of wonderwall there).
Thanks!

I thought that was really good! You have a great sense of pitch. Your rhythm is good. If that's you playing guitar at the same time, good job of keeping the singing and playing going. Your voice is expressive. If you were singing more of a classical style, I'd say it was a little nasal and you're closing your throat and you're too quick to go to the r at the end of a word. But for this style, it all works.

Thanks! Been trying to work on my nasality without loosing the light/bright soundcolor.. Yes its me playing guitar but not at the same time:) , they are different tracks, as you can hear theres also a "solo" guitar and backround vocals in the chorus (though maybe too quiet..)

Not that bad mate! Its way too cool. I love Oasis. The way you sing it is just that simple. And as my concern is as long as you are in tune, you're doing great man. :wink:

You've got a nice tone.

It also sounds like your organic voice, which I appreciate.

And, your singing uberfits the music your singing.

So, I think you did well.

I will nag you and say, that you could put some dynamics, here and there. Like, singing really quietly here, then getting a bit louder there, then going back to singing softly, et cetera.
