Hey there!

I was recently contacted by Luciana. A female vocalist, who performs with Cirse - same band as our versatile instructor/guitarist Gabriel Leopardi.

We have been discussing back and fourth how we can come up with useful singing lessons for guitarists. I am sure that most would agree that the guitar is an instrument that's easily combined with vocals (as a opposed to saxophone!).

Well I think we have now come up with some kind of recipe - so you can expect a first singing lesson here at GMC quite soon.

Luciana has also promised me that she, as our only singing instructor, will be active in the lessons feedback so we all can ask her questions.

Stay tuned! smile.gif

I'm so bad I couldn't sing myself out of a hostage situation. I HOPE it's really really basic singing to start with so I can catch up cos I'd love to be able to sing and have so for many years.

yes it is - the first lesson is just a basic exercise which you can practice to your heart's desire - along with the lesson features provided. We also agreed that the lessons would be aimed towards guitarists - in other words simple.

Man I make it sound like we are stupid - that's not my point of course! biggrin.gif

Hey Kris you know what, one of my friends has written a song and I was supposed to arrange all the music for it. But the problem was, none of us knew how to sing. But seems that I am granted with a wish I never made. Three cheers for you, Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!
