Post your FIRST POST here to introduce yourself, and afterwards to welcome new members.
Strictly NO MUSIC LINKS, OR LYRICS. The "Introduce Yourself" board is about YOU. Don't worry... you can let us hear works in progress on the critique boards, and finished work in the Musician's Lounge and the Showcase Board.
Includes lyrics, instrumentals, full songs, recording, production, and cover critique for music creation and other creative arts critique such as poetry, artist / band artwork and photography, and music video production critique.
Ideal place to talk about creating videos or images. Video and graphics editing tutorials tips and techniques! What video editing suites to use, graphics programs, how to achieve a particular effect, plug-ins and tool chains, automation and rendering... a great place to suggest your video for the Songstuff Channel
Perhaps someday I'll understand how Web-land decides what's interesting & what's not. I've been watching the view-count on this article climb...almost 5,000 reads now. The counts on the other 13 articles in the blog number only in the hundreds. Obviously, someone found this one particularly interesting, but I'll be damned if I know why! LOL The blog serves primarily as a text supplement for a YouTube channel of the same name. While I do enjoy knowing that it serves a purpose, I have no idea why this one article stood out.
I have reached one conclusion. Since the view-count for the entire blog is only in the 5,000 range, someone must be sharing it or posting the article URL....something allowing direct access to that single article.
Thank you so much taking the time to post your feedback, I really appreciate it. I will see to it that your lyrical suggestion gets forwarded to Andy.
Thank you for your understanding, I think most of us know how drastically things can change by the time we get to a second draft. (Haha). Im sorry about this but my english has it's limits quite often, I just wanted to clarify with you on what you meant by groove? Did you mean the overall tempo/rhythm in the sense that it may be a little slow or fast, or, did you mean something more like the natural stress of certain words in the sentences that sounded abnormal/strange - like a prosody issue? I do plan on fixing up the prosody issues and Im also going to practice the guitar picking a lot more before the second draft because the lack of coordination did make me lose focus on the singing. However, if you meant groove in the sense of tempo/rhythm, then that's something entirely different that I will have to experiment with.
Thanks again for your feedback!
Yeah, yo. Eff this giving up noise you're on. Nobody suggested you can't do this. Just that you're off to a great start and have things you can improve. And by god, for most of us, there is a ton we can improve on.
Getting the right emotion is all about confidence. A good vocal performance in general is about confidence, and this quitting talk makes me think you have some room to grow in that department. But good news...that means you *can* do it. So do it. It'll be a process, but one that will be worth it.
