heya, i was sitting at home trying to write a new song couple of nights ago, when i decided to practice one of my old songs i havent played in ages. recorded the first take and this is it. voice is a bit wobbly but see what you think (you might need to click on the 'run ActiveX toolbar at top of screen when it opens, its safe i think)

Show and Tell - Andrew Harris (me!)

Andrew,

I tried to take a listen and it locked up my cpu. Maybe a quicktime thing. If you have somewhere to listen, maybe soundclick or myspace, post it and I'll give you my 2 cents, if you want it. :) Gwynne.

Hey,
I just listened and I thought the singing was very fully realized for the material. The only possible improvement you could make would be to dedicate some more practice time to working your scales and really get a feel for different interval jumps and "licks"... though I think you should hold on to the way you kind of slur the scale type parts, it has a personality. Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but I just liked your voice on this tune.

I really liked the song. I don't really have anything to say about it except for thanks for sharing it

I like it, coleclark, you have a great voice. Right off the bat, the song seemed too busy, vocally, too crowded, you know? Enunciation could be clearer as well. Is there a way to slow down the tempo so you could focus more on the words? Less is more. I liked your emotion in it, too. Just my two cents.

I had tried to listen to your audio clip earlier but I had problems as well. Today for some reason it worked though.
Anyways, the song is very good overall. As Elle said, it does feel like the words are a bit crowded, but that doesn't take away from the fact that you sang it quite well.
Nice job

hmmmm really?

i thought the guitar work was quite busy and dominating with all the twiddly bits but the vocals were quite slow, if i take any words out i reckon it will sond empty

could you explain your thoughts a bit more maybe?

It could be the guitar making it sound 'crowded', Cole, or it could be your enunciation...I had trouble making out some of the words. And without the printed lyrics to pull from, I have no idea what the words were so I could pinpoint you to them. It feels as though you are rushing the words. Would it be possible to slow down the tempo a bit? You really have a nice voice, and I can't give you more concrete advice on this song until I can make heads or tails out of it.
