you don't sound like him at all and you fucked this song up also your band sounds terrible doing this song
I wasn't trying to sound just like him and I don't know if you listened or not, but it doesn't take a band to play the guitar and sing.
Thanks for giving APC and Tool fans a bad name.
Funny I come across this. I was just listening to the song last night. I have to say you pull off the vocals very good. It almost sounds like maynard himself at points.
Your vocals are quite nice, but I have to say it was a bit shake-y at time, and out of time with the guitar part. I'm not sure if you recorded them separately or not, but try and record with a click-track to keep yourself in time. I know I always have trouble keeping time while strumming chords.
As for mixing, I liked the dynamics of it all. I'd like to see a more developed cover/remix, with all sorts of instruments. Keep it up man :)
Thanks for the critique!
If I had a way to record my drumkit I'd totally be down on re-recording it, but sadly I don't so I had to stick to this acoustic cover.
I learned the song on the guitar and developed the vocals in about 2 hours so I can totally see why you make the critiques you did.
As for the timing, there are a few parts where the timing is a little off. That's partially because I'm a self-taught guitarist so every time I try to mess with a metronome I never get it to the BP/S that I want. I'm starting to teach myself music theory though, so hopefully that works better with recordings.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
