...since it has some guitar stuff in it I thought I might post it here...

You probably know my philosophy - anybody can learn anything if he/she puts her/his ass into it. So the singing project I have had going on recently is my attempt to scientifically prove my thesis - my singing has always been pretty crappy.

It still is, of course - but now have I have started noticing a little progress so I decided to write/record a song to to put my ability to the test... biggrin.gif

I am looking forward to your comments...so here we go, "Collection Of Sins":

I love it mate. alot better than i thought. trying to think of who you remind me of. you have a much rockier voice than myself mate. The song itself is wicked , love the rythem well catchy and could listen again an again.
Keep it up and you will have mastered something else! Is there no end to your tallent??

Did you record the lot on your own, or have you used your band to play the backing?

Great effort. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

The guiatr part will definately make a lesson - and real good one I hope! wink.gif

I have been holding out on myself - right now I am thinking my singing practicing might taken me way further than I would have guessed. We'll se what I think about it tomorrow...

I record most things with the strat - it gives the best sound, all though the parker guitar has better "bending-playablitity" (and looks cooler! - in my opinion).

Nice rocksong biggrin.gif

That doesn't a bit like I'm used to hear u!! neither song or music. Much more like Hellacopters and a bit of Freak Kitchen song tongue.gif

Impressing. Really good rockin. Maybe u could put out the whole song with tabs and lyrics as a x-mas gift to us rockers smile.gif Or make a lesson out of it as "rythm guitar with licks in it"

BTW - what kind of strat is that u use? us standard highway? changed pickups?

As always - keep on rockin biggrin.gif

Hey Kris, I think it sounded very cool. When I first heard it, I was trying to think of what the sound reminded me of out there and the closest refererence I have is the band "System of a Down". Maybe it was the way you changed your vocals up a lot. Oh, and how does it feel to sing and play at the same time? Do you get tangled up in parts, haha...
I guess I started out doing both at the same time so I'm somewhat used to it, just curious how it would feel going from a guitarist to a vocalist/guitarist.

Well, yeah its hard at first. but I'm thinkin' that our friend (and great teacher) Kris, recorded the vocals and guitars at different times. That's just my guess.

The song kicks ass! biggrin.gif It suites your voice, although I would not have guessed you would sound like that. Hey, you're in key, a bit strained but that's obviously what you are going far, nasty lyrics BTW laugh.gif Shame on you tongue.gif
Really nice mixing job in the recording, lots of panning and bringing things front to back, very clean.
