Well, after much input from Gnease and Hueseph after posting "Layla" (my first hear here post) I've finally re-recorded it... (And after much growth as a guitar player) I used a backing track this time, and I sang along as well.

All tips, suggestions, comments, criticisms are welcome as usual.

Thanks a lot guys.

Love,

Good playing! Timing off I could tell pretty quickly, but nice tone! :) You sure like Clapton, huh? 8) Again, good job!

lol! Timing again?!? NOOOOOO.

Kidding, where is it off, I can't hear it?

Thanks very much yoyo for the comments, and yes, Clapton is the reason I am playing guitar.

Actually I wasn't through the whole song when I wrote that. The intro overdub came a tad too fast, and also some of the notes were hung on too much, they were suppose to go down faster. Like on the 15 and 17th fret hangons, you hung on too much, it was supposed to go down faster. Hope you can understand it. But after that, it cleared up and was very good, nothing big after that. Good job dude! :)

Well, I'm no expert or anything, but I'd love to be able to play the guitar like that. I didn't think the singing was bad - it wasn't as strong as the guitar, but still not bad.

Wow. Thanks very much Portia, I appreciate that, especially coming from you.

Same to you yoyo. Haha, I know this is a guitar forum , but I've always had this feeling that my singing is terrible, I'm not sure why, so I've been trying to improve it (Thats why I put up Crossroads, Cocaine, Black Magic Woman, along with a desire to improve in guitar as well).

Appreciate the comments very much guys, and I'll appreciate any other suggestions or comments or criticisms from the rest of ya.

Thanks again,
Taso

I think that vocals are really just in your mind, if you're gonna be pessimistic about it I know you'll be bad.... 8)

That very well could be. I'm starting to feel better about it after comments from cocaine and this song.

Gnease, Hue, you guys out there? Wanted to get some input from you fine gentlemen on this one.

Its pretty good.

Work on those singing tips I gave you man. Try not to hurt your voice either. Drink water a lot if you dont.

Good luck, keep practicing that voice man. I know I dont have a fantastic voice but Ive been taught how to get a good voice. It takes work. Good luck.

This is going to sound weird (especially because I'm still learning how to sing myself) but, it seems to me that you are singing straight from your stomach. You want to use your whole chest cavity, esophagus and larynx to sing.

When you sing, do you feel like your relying on your stomach? If so, and your not sitting down, you need to stand (or sit) up straight and focus on your singing and each actuation of every note you hit. It can be done sitting but, in will be easier standing, as you have complete control of your body.

Which leads to…..Are you sitting down? If so, try standing. Listen to yourself and try to find where your vocals are coming from.

Are you completely comfortable singing the songs you do?

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with your voice. I just think you need more practice letting YOUR voice out. Confidence has a lot to do with it but, having confidence doesn't make it easy either. I'm still working on my voice and it's not easy. You have to look at it from the prospective of….. Your voice is its own instrument, you had to train each individual finger to play that song right?..... now you need to train each vocal cords to do the same to reach you're goal.

Overall, you did a great job. But, it seems you aren't happy with your voice (I'm the same way) so, hopefully you'll understand what I just said (I'm not the greatest with words, sorry).

Mike
