I'm not an expert but it sounds like you're singing too low for your range. If you try singing a bit higher you should be able to give it more effort and more power. IMO you've got potential though.
I'm up for this!On guitar
My dad just got re-married and I went to the wedding, it was fine...the circumstances were different to yours though. In my opinion you should go, I'm sure he would appreciate it and it's only one day.
I've always kinda thought that I wouldn't encourage my kids to believe in Santa where I have some, but I suppose when it comes down to it I will probably end up comforming, just in case they ruin it for other kids. I can't actually remember 'finding out' when I was younger; I don't think I really ever believed it to be honest.
Wow, this is awesome, nice find

I got to level 42 :O

EDIT: Oh snap, 44!!!!
"The court heard how Cooney put the 12-inch carrot down his trousers and told a pupil in her 40s that a perfectly executed manoeuvre was so good that it had given him an erection."

Hahahah lmao!

I know it's really quite a serious business but that bit is undeniably hilarious if you imagine the dialogue that accompanied it
I haven't seen it yet, but I might have to watch it based on that clip
It's blatantly Zed

Lol at Americans not knowing that everyone else pronounces it differently to them
I have never considered it, not even for a second. My life is pretty good!

In my opinion, it is incredibly selfish. No matter how alone you feel in the world, I guarantee there is someone who would be saddened by your death if you commited suicide. It might be the end to your problems, but it could be the start of theirs.

If you ever think your life is bad, just imagine someone worse off than you, like a starving child in Africa. That should put it into focus.
Hmm, that happens on my mum's account...but not mine, and we use the same computer. Weird?
OMG it's so close. CC Deville is winning atm!

Vote Yakult, quickly
^^I've got the boxset as well

My favourite sitcom ever, John Cleese is a pure genius.
He has a great colloboration with John Lee Hooker called 'Things Gonna Change'. It has a ridiculously awesome solo.
Yeah, didn't you know?!
I was gutted when I heard I thought Fred was pretty awesome, especially cos the first TBS album I got was Louder Now, so I don't have the John Nolan bias that some of the older fans have.

When I heard that he was putting out a solo album and devoting loads of time to it I kinda thought this might happen. Apparently he was trying to contribute ideas for the new TBS album and the rest of the band were shooting them down cos they were 'too pop', so I suppose he was justified in leaving if he really wants to follow a different path. The Colour Fred is a really stupid name to be fair I don't really rate the music either!
Haven't got one :O

It's a bonus in one way cos people can't take the mickey. But sometimes I feel kinda left out of all the middle name fun
Hey, are you sin^2X? Because I'm cos^2X, and I think we could be one together.

Lol Maths related chat up lines.

I must be an asymptote, because I can feel myself getting closer and closer to you!
I thought it was pretty good, I really like your tone. You had a few timing issues on the chorus, your strumming was a bit off in places. Solo was nice, just a few wrong notes in there, maybe it was the tab?

Good job
Nicely done

Guitar was spot on, very smooth. Vocals were good as well, you've got quite a powerful and distinctive voice.

My only suggestions to improve it would be mixing ones. I don't know what program you record with, but if you haven't already I would suggest getting something like Kristal. It lets you add effects, I would suggest a bit of reverb on both guitar and vocals, I do it on all my covers as it gives a more professional sound to the recording. Aside from that, the vocals were clipping a bit, I think they should be a little quieter. Just being picky really cos it was an excellent cover!
Thanks a lot guys. ChordProgressiv, yeah I get what you mean My voice isn't the greatest, but it's nice to know that it's actually listenable these days I'll keep working on it!

7daycrisis, cheers!I've never really thought of harmonising, I will definitely give it a try!

I liked them both.

The acoustic one was really nicely produced, tasteful use of the instruments. I think you were a bit harsh on your vocals, I think they're good!Not sure about the backing 'oooohs' in the chorus, sounds like you might be straining a bit for those notes?And when you go into a higher octave in the second verse it sounds a little bit uncomfortable to me. Very nice job though.

As for the electric version, not bad!I think the guitar should have been a little quieter, it was kinda overpowering. Cool tone though, and sweet pinch harmonics.

Crit mine?

Well okay, not quite acoustic, I did it on my electric clean setting due to recording difficulties with my acoustic. How are the vocals?I keep working on my voice

Song is on my profile here.

C4C and all that jazz guys

Well to be honest you sound like you're doing pretty well already. Just talk in Spanish as much as possible to your teachers and so on, and watch/read a lot of Spanish news on the internet. Going to the country would be a good idea though, that's why I'm going to do French and Italian at university, 6 months in each as part of the course!Woot!
I played Under the Bridge by RHCP and I Believe In A Thing Called Love by The Darkness

I got an A overall so that seems to work. Good luck!
I think they are absolutely amazing. I don't care if people say they are kids books, they are three of the most incredible books I've ever read, and I read a lot of stuff.

They were so addictive I was late for school because I was reading them in the morning and couldn't stop. Pullman creates such an amazing world. The ending was really sad, I suppose it had to happen though

Sometimes I'm laying in my bed and I feel like playing guitar, but instead I throw picks at it and make beautiful sounds that inspire songs later ^^.



Haha yeah me too!
Because Earth's rotation is gradually slowing, the length of each day increases: The day at the end of 1.0 century is 1.0 ms longer than the day at the start of the century. In 50 centuries, what is the total (in hours) of the daily increases in time (that is, the sum of the gain on the first day, the gain on the second day, etc.)?


Awfully worded question

So, in one century the length of an Earth day increased by 1.0ms. Therefore in 36500 days the length increases by 1.0ms. But this is where I think we need a bit more info. If the increases are following some kind of sequence then we could use the formula for the sum of an arithmetic/geometric sequence, but we don't know that.

Im gonna have an absolute stab in the dark and say 0.05 seconds, but surely it's not that easy haha.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
Thanks a lot attackofnose, that looks like it's right. They don't like to work us too hard so they make us assume that the generators are 100 efficient

I said it's probably easy because I know there are a lot of really smart people on here!
Looks like everyone's forgotten their Physics then
Hey guys, hoping someone could help me out with this question?


The Grand Coulee Dam is 1270m long and 170m high. The electrical power output from the generators at its base is apporximately 2000MW. What rate of water flow is necessary to produce this amount of power?

(Density of water= 1000 kgm^-3)


I realise this is probably really easy but unfortunately I've not even touched Physics over the 6 weeks holidays and have forgotten everything I ever learnt

Much appreciated
I love it, although I agree most of it looks pretty scripted, there's no way anyone can come up with that much funny stuff straight off the bat.

Russell Howard is an absolute legend, I love his little surreal flights of fantasy.
This is definitely the funniest thing I've ever seen on Youtube:

I was actually crying the first time I watched it!

I realise it's probably pretty old btw.
'OMG do you have to get a different guitar?'

Because I'm left-handed.

It's not a particularly stupid question, because to be fair I didn't realise that lefties needed left-handed guitars until I started playing, but I've just answered it so many times it really gets on my nerves.
Woot I got AAAB!(AS results)
I'm getting AS...quite confident about French but English owned me. Maths and Physics I'll have to wait and see

Good luck everyone!
I got Northeast. Which is wrong, considering I'm English

I answered 'Different' for every single question!None of those words sound anything like each other in a Midlands English accent.
Henman sure knows how to get his money's worth out of a game

Finally!
I thought that was really good. You nailed the guitar and your voice is quite pleasant to listen to. Bit disappointed not to hear the high note in the chorus, but who can actually hit that, lol The recording quality was kinda lo-fi, you might want to try and get that a little bit clearer. There was also a distinct change in the quality of the vocal track halfway through?Nice job!

Not bad, that was pretty hard and addictive. I had fun practicing my French reading the insults they give you after you've finished as well
Yeah it was a really nasty crash, I got really worried when I was watching it live. It was good to hear that he's ok, the safety advances of F1 cars recently have been huge.
