I don't know how the **** I pulled this off being that I don't have an exceptional singing voice and am half tone deaf, but I got this song DOWN its amazing... even if you don't know the song, just give it a listen cause its really an amazing song, and I think I actually did it justice. I know the higher harmony is a little bit forced, but there was no other way I could do it.

Too bad for the recording quality

You did do quite a nice job. It's always refreshing to see something that isn't guitar solo oriented. Did you play the guitar there? It's also quite a good job. What was your recording method for the vox?

At a very small amount of times the vocals sounded like too much, like at the 1:00 minute mark, where you just kind of of do that "Ahhh" thing. I don't know if that's how the song goes, but it MIGHT be better with just one voice at that part?

Good job, sir. Great job.

Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

Thanks man... I recorded with audacity. Put the mic up against the amp to record the guitar, then I recorded myself singing 3 times over in different pitches.

yeah ive never heard this song before that i know of, but you did a pretty nice job. I'm not sure im a fan of the three harmonies on vocals, only because two of them sound very similar and the other is outside your range. The middle harmony accompanied by a female singer would sound really good, you should look into that. but as it is, i think the vocals just sounded crowded.
