chords are really easy, 022000, 332000, 355000, 554000 for the verses and 022000, 332000 for the chorus, and at the very end i just messed around a little bit. sorry dont know names of the chords. LOL

oh yeah tuned down 1/2 step (eb,ab,db,gb,bb,eb) and capo 4th fret.

thats not bad dude, just keep practising. did you play and sing vocals at the same time?
#9
I thought it was pretty good. If you get singing lessons or something (if you're not already), you will be A LOT better.
#10
You did a very nice job, you should add a kick ass chorus with drums bass and elec guitar ect. Your voice is good keep practicing and it will improve even more, it's much better than mine don't be afraid to sing alloud infront of people for practice.
#11
you dont have bad voice but you might wanna consider some vocal lessons if your really serious about singing

Well put. The tortured but not hateful soul. If it's that important to you, some coaching will help. If not, here's a couple suggestions...

Get a 4-track recorder. You can play the guitar part, and add in the vocals later. During this recording, you seem to be mostly concentrating on the timing of your voice with the beat, instead of the pitch and putting feeling behind the words.

Also, sing from your gut. Your stomach muscles should be flexed while you sing. Right now, you are singing through your nose, which makes it sound whiny.

Keep it up, chubbs.

That's exactly what i thought. Use Audcaity, or whatever you use, and record the guitar part first, then do vocals. You will be able to put more into your voice. But not bad though. Its a little choppy, too many stops, just smooth it out.

i personally think u have an awesome voice
Do you, you, feel like I do?
#17
^^ i agree with everyone else. lay down the guitar track and then add the vocals. i made the mistake of starting with the two together resulting in me being out of time most of the time. of course if you were performing you would need to combine them, your voice isn't that bad, just practice more. but for recording purposes that's not the best thing to do. no one's gonna know you "cheated" and you can concentrate on one thing at a time.

I Liked it alot. Voice is not bad, I love the melody. The chords are simple, but they work. Lyrics are pretty good too. Just one thing though, I was reading the other posts... and the one that I have quoted up there says that you have it tuned down a half step and then a capo on the 4th, why don't you just put a capo on the 3rd? lol, no biggie though... the only thing i have to say is they it ends abruptly, you should draw it out more or do something... idk, just mix it up

p.s. thanks for the crit

Thanks for the feedback on my song, I was a little worried with the vocal tracks because they were first takes, your feed back is very much appreciated. The song is very tranquil. With some work I think you could make your vocals work with the kind of music you play. If you enjoy singing, then you can definitely make it work.
Keep it up man,
