Guitar is good. It's a little rushed, but I can tell that's because you struggled to finger-pick and sing at the same time. The singing was a little flat too. But overall, you're headed in the right direction. Keep up the practicing!

I gotta hand it to you, this is a tough song to sing and play at the same time. WHile you have the playing down, the singing as said before is a bit rushed. All I gotta say is practice and you'll get it!

JJXMXP : Yep, your right. Thanks for your kind words though, I will keep playing and trying to improve myself.

Jgomez26 : I just commented you lol, didn't realize you already commented me, my bad :P Thanks though man, I will keep practicing and trying to improve my skills.

Do either of you guys have any songs that you think would benefit me to learn to play and sing at the same time?

Thanks again.

I think Karma Police would suit you quite nicely,it's by radiohead. It doesn't have any fingepicking but I believe the singing to be pretty hard.

Hey dude really nice. Honestly the guitar was pretty fantastic, the only thing a little of was the singing, but that song is a b*tch to sing and play at the same time. The only thing i could say is to practice it more to get more comfortable with both, but other than that, awesome job.

As others have said before, the guitar playing is amazing.

Do you write any original material? In addition to practicing your singing, writing original material that is catered to your voice is something to consider. I find it much easier to write music for my own voice than to try and cover somebody else's song, but if you keep working at it, I'm sure your vocals will improve.

The guitar needs far less work than the vocals. Some of the gutiar is a little rushed, if you practice it with a metronome its gona sound a lot better. The notes seem right, just your timing is off. As for the singing..sing and practice with a piano. Sing the notes and make sure your pitch is on. Just some tweaking on your timing and your vocals and its gona sound 20 times better, keep up the hard work though!

Jgomez26 : Okay, will do, I will add that song to my list. I enjoy that song very much and feel like its filled with passion, I will get to work on that ASAP -- thanks for the suggestion.

Fender/marshall : Thanks for your kind words, I will continue to work on my vocals.

Sean Ashe : Thanks brother, you encourage me to keep moving foward, esp. after seeing your guitar work.

Antoniowashere : Hey nice to see you! I do write my own material, that's my goal I don't really get too much enjoyment out of covering people I just do it for learning / improving purposes, but I will post some original stuff soon! Thanks for commenting.

dagget : Got it boss, will do!

Those who commented, I will C4C all of you.

Well, I saw some things in your video, but most of the people already have told you about them. So, great playing, your fingerpicking is great, the guitar part sounds very clearly, the singing needs some work, but I am sure that you will nailed after some time. I can't imagine how hard is to sing and play stuff with fingerpicking at the same time. My admirations for this. Oh, and the whole track sounds kinda chilling, I like it

Good playing, keep practicing! Finger picking is tough to get down while singing.

Your guitar is good but as people have said, the singing leaves much to be improved. What you should do is maybe sing along with the actual song and record yourself. That way, you can tell how out of pitch the singing is and correct it.

Your guitar playing is good, except that your tempo is off. Maybe that's because of the singing. Either way, I suggest you play with a metronome from now on. And as others said, your singing could be better.
Keep up the good work !
