Hi everybody
Here is new vocal attempt from me.
Four verses of the classic song St. James Infirmary.

It´s the first time I have made a recording of me singing and playing simultainously.
Had to check my live performance abilities.......

Hey Kalle

Sounds good - it does help when you're an accomplished guitar player though - you should have tried it when you were a beginner at the guitar as well... :roll:

I always think it sounds odd when someone sings in English with a strong accent - it must take some practice to get it sounding right but your style of singing might just work with a bit of practice.

Rock on!

That link isn't working for me.
I'll try later.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

It's always difficult trying to sing in a different language - I'm pretty sure I couldn't do it in Swedish! - so kudos for pulling this one off. Very nice guitar tone, too.

:D :D :D

Thanks for the positive critic.
You are right about the problem with singing in a "foreign" language even if Iam used to talk in english.
But I think that my major problem is that I am not used to sing in any language.
And I am not singing all out as I don´t trust my singing ability and it then feels akward to sing all out in a house full of other family members (even if I am in a separate room with a closed door)..
