Hey guys,

Last November I ended up filling in some vocals on a release myself, however they were pretty weak and badly reviewed. 6 months later we are doing another release and its looking to be the same situation so Ive recently started doing vocal lessons.

Just wondering if you guys think theres much improvement in terms of technique and whatnot (there are some dodgy held notes on the recent ones that I need to go back and work on)

major improvement, you actually sing in the second one and hold some notes. I'd practice some songs and post one that actually has singing throughout like an Unforgiven by Metallica. It sounds like you close your throat and hold back the vocals, listen to Dave on Symphony and how on the chorus it just opens up vocally and makes it stand out. Takes confidence and out of comfort zone
