I thought I'd use my headset to record me singing along with Lynyrd Skynyrd's "The Ballad Of Curtis Lowe" and upload it. Sure you can hear the guitar solo in the background, but that's not all that big of a deal.

Uploaded without background?

Why did you think there'd be a problem with the guitar solo? Unless you're actually doing a dedicated A Capella style song, there's no point just uploading your singing - we want to be able to match you to chords, and music helps to support your vocals. That's the point of music. Maybe you should've sought out an instrumental version.

On top of that, there was that section at the start where you must've gotten close to the microphone, and as such, you distorted your voice out. Next time, ensure you stay the same distance from the microphone.

Finally, you're singing with a very nasal tone. A lot of sounds which should be 'ung' turn out to 'uhn'. It makes this song very difficult to listen to and, with the lack of power behind your voice, is also causing you to flatten your notes. So, 1/5 and 2/10, for trying, but you need serious work.

Never Never Never

Use your headphone while singing or talking you can't believe how bad i influence keeping tone and saying in key. You actually made a submission with no use at all!
Next time no headphone on your head cause it is so bad for your end results.....

....Well, I don't have a regular microphone. I got a headset to play UT III on my PS3 and I thought I'd try it out, so just shut the hell up. >_>
