On my profile:
I decided to cover this song earlier today, and this is my first full attempt at it, so I know I messed up here and there. I'll probably re-record it once I have it down near perfect. I figured out the chords by ear (was very easy) and just improvised the strumming patterns and whatnot. I am also VERY new to singing.

My only mic is a RockBand mic, so quality isn't very good, but I plan on buying a condenser mic soon. Also, since all I had was that mic, I ad to use GarageBand, rather than ProTools. Then, I just imported the tracks into ProTools to mix and EQ and all that jazz.
Sounds best with headphones, since I used a vocal widener.

I mostly want to know what you think of my voice, but all opinions/suggestions (good and bad) are more than welcome. Thanks! C4C

EDIT: I uploaded a newer version of this song. It will be the final version, even though my voice is out of key a few times. I can not recreate the painin my voice of that run. It was just a little after my classmates memorial service, and so I dedicated it to him, along with 2 previous deaths in my high school's class of 2011. RIP Aaron Cleveland, Colin Green, and Jake Panatera.

Wow! The rockband always seems to amaze me! The recording quality is great for what you've got there

The vocals fit very nicely with the backing, kind of speaking a bit - but that adds to the feeling of the piece. However, i think you are holding back a bit - perhaps try to focus you voice more towards the mic as we are not hearing the full resonance of your voice!
But I really enjoyed this, haven't heard it at all before - so nice refreshing change.

Well done!

Yeah I think I was actually physically farther away from the mic, because the rock band mic is very sensitive to the popping noise on P's and B's, you know? Also, could vocal widener have that effect? I just tried it because I've never done that before. Thanks for the feedback!

This was enjoyable. I never heard the original, but I reckon you did a good job on this one. You sang out of key and/or out of time here and there, but for some reason that actually worked, and made this cover better than it would have been if it were "perfect". I don't know, you have the kind of voice that gets away with stuff like that, I guess. Kinda like Brandon Flowers (The Killers frontman).

Shame about the recording quality, but seeing as you're getting a condenser soon, that should be fixed in no time

Crit my cover? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1348168

I have nothing else to say about this cover, because everything I said last time still counts, even more so than before. Like I said, your voice being out of key here and there actually works, it makes the vocals sound more emotional and "real", if you know what I mean. I can really feel the emotion in your voice. Despite the low mic quality, this cover is still great. Well done man!

Thanks man! The biggest difference between the 2 recordings is that in this one I am actually in rhythm the whole time. But the line "And he turned them into bread" is a ****ing half tone off throughout and it's pissing me off haha. Thanks or all your reviews guys.
