Ok so doesn't look like I will be able to hide this from the pubic eye much longer - so here we go laugh.gif



Watch it in 720p HD at youtube:

Also - some of you have requested a singing lesson. I haven't done this so far simply because I don't feel very comfortable with my vocal technique yet. However in this video I have tried to explain how I approach practicing getting a rock/metal voice.

edit - I dance much better than Beyonce - in case you didn't notice wink.gif

Why? Everyone knows it's the truth.

I can't possibly imagine we'll be seeing anything else than lots of people agreeing to this statement. (well ok some might say we are pretty equal - but that's probably just because they didn't watch the slipper close-up at the end of the video)

laugh.gif laugh.gif You should send this as an application to Dancing with the Stars, maybe you and Beyonce will get paired up... tongue.gif

Great video man, the quality is top notch and I enjoyed listening to your approach to vocals. smile.gif

BTW, the slipper kick was awesome! laugh.gif
Trond Vold
I would love to see Beyonce attempt those air-guitar moves! biggrin.gif

I haven't received her application yet - are you sure she has sent it to this address: kristofer@guitarmasterclass.net ?

Now put your hands up
Up in the club, we just broke up
I'm doing my own little thing
Decided to dip and now you wanna trip
Cause another brother noticed me

Are you sure you want all that attention from the Brothers????

Excellent song and cool video Kris !

PS: Beyonce can't do this awesome slipper kick, so you're much better - But she's just got other advantages ... biggrin.gif

Sounds dangerous - I guess not unsure.gif

So do you always set a glass of water over all of your electronics?

Other than that you seem perfectly normal. ;-)

laugh.gif laugh.gif her agent may have pulled the plug due to your amazing dance skills. tongue.gif I think you would be better paired with Paula Abdul.. unsure.gif laugh.gif
Marek Rojewski
Kris strikes again laugh.gif laugh.gif
Canis
Beyoncé haven't answered yet?
The only reason has got to be that she's feeling threatened. You would have taken over all her airtime, and everyone would forget her when the new Posh-Dahlinator starts shakin' that thing laugh.gif

Anyway, great lesson ^^
I've been training my singing voice for some time now. I can almost hit the right notes now.... tongue.gif

Cool - that was the first step for me. Then I started practicing get that rock:ish vocal sound. Now I am back to practicing getting the right pitch - I have quite some more progress to do!

Nice! I'm on the right path, then! The only "problem" is that I have a baritone voice, so I can't get nearly as high as you.. But I guess I have to find the style that fits my voice tongue.gif

Awesome video, slippers are brutal laugh.gif

Hehe yes! Bad habit I know - I haven't had any serious accidents with it yet though (but it's been close!)

hmm - I remember having heard somewhre that you can usually learn to expand your higher register. But the opposite is more tricky (learning to sing lower).

Nothing wrong with a baritone voice though - you can do lots of fun stuff with that!

I got a question, two slippers go up but only one came down!! Hang on........a slipper just flew past my bedroom window huh.gif !!

Guess you learned that ferocious kicking style from Muris!! ph34r.gif
Gabriel Leopardi
yeah! Fantastic song & dancing! Beyonce is jealous because she can't move like that! laugh.gif

Gilmore
Awsome, your videos are always fun to watch. And your production is always top quality. smile.gif

Fran
Amazing air-guitar dancing solo there Kris laugh.gif laugh.gif
FilipofCroatia
V good song - cool vocals too! smile.gif

Kris, I think you've found your TRUE calling. It isn't guitar, it isn't singing, it isn't dance.

It's comedy and I mean that in the best possible way.

David Wallimann
Great song as always Kris!
When is the album coming out> I'm serious!

Are these speakers the Behringer Truths?
I'm using the same ones! :-)

blindwillie
Great!
I love it when people don't take themselves to serious.

Hehe thanks - who knows maybe you will see me as a stand-up comedian in a bar somewhere in future (kicking my flips flops on the audience)...sounds like a lot of fun when I think about it laugh.gif

You had me at "bad mother finger."
The Uncreator
The Dancing is priceless, and the riffs are monstrous, Awesome work Kris!


PS

Is there anyone ever watching you when you do that, Or have any neighbors caught you in the middle of this dance? laugh.gif
Kristofer Dahl
Hehe thanks Brett! biggrin.gif

Well Maria catches me sometimes - but she's got used to it. For some reason she is not always as entertained as me by this kind of stuff!!

I try to keep away from the neighbor "radar" though!
Skalde
I like the way you sing. You use your voice like an instrument. That's cool - keep on grooving.
Gus
Hahaha. Very entertaining laugh.gif

And really nice song.

Also, I liked a lot your explanations about vocals. I am thinking going a little more serious about singing (at least using it the best way possible for backing vocals).
I've gotta try the falsetto + some extra power you mentioned in the video.
