If I get more yes votes I'll sing with her if I get more No votes then I don't know what will happen cause she really wants me to sing with her.. and I want to but I'm not sure if my voice wants to sing Lol..

There was an old EP of Muse going round. Matt Bellamys voice was kinda crap when he was younger, but now it's friggin awesome.

Point is there's hope for everyone. You just need a bit of practise, can't expect to start singing and be good at it straight away.

Oh yeah and wrong forum.

Ouch, as constructive as I can without feeling slack, I think it was average.
Sing louder next time and practice a ****load!

I'm not bashing here, this is my honest opinion:

Work on your breathing. Your voice is too weak and you are singing mostly off-key.

Your voice isn't good at the moment, but it could improve with practice.

The other important question to ask is this: is the girl hot?
#11
I'd say your voice is decent. There's a few note you don't seem to be able to hit but alittle practise should take care of that. Good luck, mate

No.

As to why - everyone here has already pointed out your flaws so there's no point in going over them.

As to the performance. When is it? If tomorrow, then there's really no point in going unless SHE really wants you to, no matter what objections you have. Then it also means something else, of what's content I will leave to your discovery.

If the performance is in 2weeks/month, then I'd say you practice, practice, practice and practice more. Then you sing WITH HER for practice and you guys might pull it off decently.

But don't expect a grand show out of it. Good luck!

you sounnd like i sound on recording! Potential to have a very good voice with practice and maybe lessons. Do scales and warm ups to strengthen those vocal cord for greater control,projection and increase your range. Good luck with the girl

To control your breathing, learn how to support your diaphragm and let only enough air out to make the note, not too much, not too little. Oh, and breathe with your lower lungs, your stomach should be going in and out when you are breathing, not your chest. You can practice the breathing techniques anywhere to get to it!

cooper512: potential hehe that's what my uncle(a great singer) told me but he said i would need alot of practice.. too bad we live far away from them or I'd be getting personal training :p

crackhutch: thanks for the tip. I always loose my breath wile singing.. :p I think I'm breathing the wrong way.

If she has a good voice, she should be able to tell you if your bad, or what you can do better, ask her.
#21
You went off key a lot of times. Though you can fix that with practice!

Your voice could accent hers really well, I haven't listened to the clip yet. I'm a little busy, if you post it in the Singing Tips Thread then i'll get to it later tonight (Link in my sig). I wasn't the greatest singer (still arne't) but my voice really worked well when me and the singer of my old band (female) worked together, just because it blended. If you do it right, and you have a good ear for pitch, then your voice will find alternate melodies (harmonies) without even meaning to. This isn't because you're neccessarily a "good singer" it's just because it's what your voice will do.

But yeah, if you want tips on breathing and practice things then singing tips thread, meet you there.

Not bad but you're too hesitant.

Here are the tips:

1- Don't hold back so much
2- Lose the 20 second single note intro

Your voice has a good timbre and you seem to be pretty much on key, so just work on developing a stronger voice.

She wants you to sing with her... You know how much of an honour that is? Do it man! Go sing with her. It doesn't matter what the Pit says, she thinks your voice is good, and as long as she thinks that, you should go up on stage, not for yourself, but for her!

C'mon man get up there and sing!

All the people slamming you probably don't even have clips of their singing.

I say go for it. You're young and you get better by doing, not posting.
#30
you need to sing from your stomach, this sounds like its all throat.

an easy kinda of good way of doing this is by tensing you stomach muscles like you're doing situps and then kind of push your stomach down. And don't be afraid to put more power behind it, its easier to hit the notes when you sing more loudly, its much harder when you sing really softly like that.

The tonality is pretty awful to be honest

Exactly, we all have good gigs and bad gigs. Whether we're good singers or not. It's just practice mate and giving it a go.

Decent... not good or great. Room for significant improvement but you don't make me wanna jam a screw driver in my ear. You're ok, IMO. You'll be fine.

#34
That wasn't bad at all buddy. Defo got the foundations of a good voice, all you need is to practice.
#35
I have no idea about anything to do with singing, I only know what sounds good and what doesn't. This is the exacts same way 99.9% of the audience will be so I can't really give you specific critiques on what to do, but I think it sounded pretty good, and for just one show, your voice doesn't have to be insanely amazing. Just practice like everyone else here says I guess and it will be great.
#38
You'd think for guitarists, people here would have better rhythm. I rarely hear a bedroom recording on this site where the singer has any idea of how to sing on beat with the song.
#39
absolutely dreadful singing, but your voice doesn't have a bad tone. You need to step up and not be afraid to sing. Right now you're putting a lot of 'whisper' in your voice, and you're not hitting the notes solidly. Work on confidence and hitting the notes better and you'll do all right.
#40
I just did it XD lol oh well it's not just the 2 of us though.. :P my bro joined(pianist) and another girlfriend of her(she sings ), my bro(a good singer too) said my mic was on low volume but he heard it and he said I improved yay! lol
