I want to start off by saying that I love the original song. I think the reverb was a nice touch, and the whole thing has a nice "reset" sort of vibe about it, as if the protagonist in a movie is singing this to calm himself after his life's completely fallen apart and he's hit rock bottom. I loved the way you started this acapella, too, but it might've needed some more substance later on to create a sense of climax. For example, I like how you started off the piece by creating a sense of shyness about the vocals, especially regarding the note lengths. But I also think you needed to hold them out longer later in the piece in order to heighten the drama more. I also love the light, floaty and breathy quality your voice has throughout the piece. Maybe that's what really made me think that this song came from the perspective of a downtrodden soul. I think you inadvertently changed keys a couple of times in the piece, though, and sometimes your voice falls flat at the end of a phrase. Still, overall I greatly commemorate you for the vulnerability you've exposed in this piece, and I'd encourage you to keep developing your vocal talents. Keep it up, Ale! ^^
Ahaha, 4.5 is way too high a score for this, but thank you :'D
I get what you're saying about the protagonist! I've seen several movies where someone starts singing, in a similar acapella fashion. I suppose that "Edge of the Night" from Lord of the Rings, and "Hanging Tree" from (I think?) the third Hunger Games movie.
There is so much that could be improved here! Like the recording equipment, and the fact that this was just randomly recorded on a whim with no practice or planning. Your ideas for what could've been done better are pretty good!
I did chance the key. One on purpose, but probably a few times without thinking about it too. Either way, I'm singing this a bit too high for my range :p
I hope I do develop my vocal talents! I've been singing a bit more than usually recently. My latest "real" upload is actually one in which I'm singing too, and I've made a few improvements, in the very least.
Thank you! :)
Very nice lovely and relaxing track! Quality! Would imagine slow guitars and the rock band to join in at some point xD but song is very good as it is
P. S. I switched reviews for your tracks and cannot undo. Merry Xmas!
Thank you, dude :D
Yeah, I can imagine that. That'd be really awesome XD I'd have to practice my singing at first though!
No probs. Merry Christmas! :3
You actually have a good voice. Your high notes are a bit squeaky and sometimes you go a bit low and it sounds a bit nervous which I think you are. I have had these problems before when recording my voice. This is still pretty good without lyrics in front of you.
Hey! Thanks :)
Yeah, both the squeaky high notes and nervous sounding low notes are partly due to the fact that I had to sing really silently. It sounds like I'm singing with more volume here, but it's only because I dragged the gain so high :p
Also, during the second verse I was singing a bit too high for me, so the highest note is totally false.
