thanks a lot guys for the comments! i was always told that i couldn't sing correctly and more false than good. then i tried to pick up lessons, but i quit because they were too expensive. but my teacher told me that i'm not a bad singer, that i just have to practice more to become a good singer. the problem is that i can't sing at home, it would just be weird to sing with my family around and giving comments about it. but i'll try to start doing it more often, now i just try to do it when no one is at home. thanks for the tips! they were really useful!

Wow, this type of voice sounds familiar but I can't place who kind of sings this way. I wanna say Sting, but that proably isn't it.

Anywho, it sounded good, work on sining out the note of each line a little bit.

I've always wanted to do this sort of thing, but I'm kinda afraid. Think I should do it?

That's funny..i was just listening to that song.

Pretty good, except i noticed you said "teaf" instead of "thief..",

thanks again! this really gives a lot of confidence. and me sounding like sting? i wish! thanks also for the advice. the thing is that i cant practice a lot at home because it would be too noisy for my family and they don't really encourage my singing, they think i don't sing too well. i'll have to find another option to practice.

Tell ur parents they are losers. Seriosuly, if you're parents can't encourage you to do something you want to do, they aren't doing their job. My parents rarely encourage me in anything I do, and it's the only reason why I'm still playin guitar, because I know I'm better then that.

Actually, didn't check the date of entry but oh well i'll reply anyway. I liked ur voice it has a rich kinda sexy quality(no sleeze intended it's just how i hear it), but a bit of advice I could give you to really develop that richness and bottom end of the voice. Is to pull in your lower abdomen hard as you sing, this acts a great support for the voice and makes the volume and power in the voice increase loads. This is something that took me a while to learn but was well worth it, try it for yourself, with and without this technique and compare the sound. Out of all the tecniques I've learnt this is probably my most valuable and didnt cost u anything Ha!
