you are so funny man!.. I just saw your myspace!, and there's a video( dust my Broom) hahahah so so funny! Congratulations!!!
You are an awsome guitarrist, and excelent actor, and great singer! Definitively blues is your style! your raspy voice is great for that!
I read that you want to extend your range, and I want to ask you something...are you training for that? or do you have a rutine to warm up your voice ?...if your answer is yes, please tell me what you have been doing... In order that your assignment complements your work.
If not, don't worry...
I noticed that you smoke. And Staffy, I'm so sorry to tell you that it goes in opposition to the high notes. We'll do our best part, but it's good to know this to be patient when the voice doens't answers in our exercises. You have to drink a lot of water.
I heard all your material: a lot of them were very great, specially when we are talking about blues style.. but if we are talking about other style like your Hallelujah version there's a lot of different little things that we can develop.
Your vibrato is awsome like your performance.
I love when people can says more things without words!
In the Monicas vals I heard insecurity in your voice.I don't feel perfect pitches. And I'm terrible with that!..sometimes it was out of tune. But i noticed it was a difficult song and I supposed you are singing and playing your guitar at the same time.. Maybe that's the reason...
The rest of the songs was really great!
Maybe we have to work your agility of the voice. You have a good force on your voice but difficulty in "sweet" songs without effort, right?
this is your assignment for this week: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/misc-less...inging-lesson2/
Be careful, Im a girl so my pitch is an octave higher than you, ok? Always practice an octave lower than me.
about practice: routine is good. I always prefer 10 minutes a day than an hour only one day.. ok?. practice this and if you can, i need to film yourself showing me your face and your neck. I have to see if your adam apple goes down while you are doing this exercise.
and try to post that video on friday or saturday...
If you have doubts, feel free to ask me EVERYTHING you want WHENEVER you want.
cheers! and good luck!
