Hey,
Well done on posting a song, its not an easy thing to do, but its one of the best things you can do (listening to yourself when you're not in you're own head).

Before I comment... (my own disclaimer). I am not a professional singer (as you will tell if you listen to my songs) I am a self taught musician with a lot of passion for it, if I give any advice then it is just what I have learned and I am just trying to help :).

Well it was quite nasal, that's what first noticed. It reminded me a lot of how I used to sing when I first started learning. I suspect that your larynx is rising and forcing the air up into your nose a little. Try to relax your throat.

Also there was no real resonance. What I mean by that is the sound seemed to come straight out of your throat and not enter your head. Our head is where our voice can resonate and give overtones, giving our voices unique qualities. Try to think about where you are directing your air-flow.

Also there didn't seem to be much support going on. Support means what it says on the tin; you must support the airflow... don't use so little that you can't get a sound, but don't use so much air that you blow you're cords apart. Try to imagine that you are trying to get all your airflow produce sound, and not let any escape needlessly (unless you want a breathy texture)

Hope that helps,
Keep on singing,
F.Y.I.

(I'm a pretty bad singer so none of what I say has any value :))

Anyway, I think its "not bad", its just not good if that makes sense. That means I can stand listening to it and even enjoy it a little. I think you have alot of potential in you voice though :)

Potential, of course!
The good points;
You have a desire to sing and to improve,
You can sing by ear to a certain extent (of course I am presuming that you are not reading any sheet music ;)),
You are not pushing your voice and in damage of straining it,
You can follow a melody!

All the ingredients are there... now you just gotta learn how to control over it. Don't expect a miracle secret (and laugh at anyone offering one) it will take years of dedication to get the voice you want, but stick at it.... we're all in it together over here :).

Keep on singing,
F.Y.I.

Well I'm no great singer myself, but here's my 2 cents.

I agree with the observations already made that you could stand to relax your throat and incorporate more resonance into your singing, but I don't have any problems with the tone of your voice now, the only problem is that it doesn't sound to me like its necessarily how you're trying or would want to sound. If it makes any sense, it sounds like your natural voice isn't showing through as clearly as if you would relax, in which case I think you'd be a much more interesting singer to listen to. But I don't really know what I'm talking about :)

Good job posting, scary isn't it?

Wanted to give you feedback but no link to video?

If you have a love for singing learn to play guitar and sing at the same time.
