Well some of you may know I have been a long-time lead singer wannabe, and last time I was on here in the early fall, I finally listened to the advice to find a voice teacher. Having Craigslist now really helped with that. I actually had two for a while, and I think it has helped, especially as I continue to teach and figure things out for myself. Anyway the one I'm working with now is not so much a teacher as a coach, and she is also a 25-year band veteran and a great singer, well connected with the local scene. A really great resource. She has been helping me produce and fine tune my demos, introducing me to Pro Tools SE, etc.
Well yesterday we sat down and went through them all and she gave them a thumbs up, but I have learned from the past that it's always good to get a second opinion or two. I don't want to promote myself too heavily until I know this set is solid. Some of the questions I still have are things like: are the vocals too loud (although it is a vocal demo), are there too many songs on there, should I keep the live demo, does the choice of songs put anyone off. It is so much easier for me to produce these now, and fine tune them, I would be an idiot not to do anything and everything to make them rock solid.
Thanks in advance for listening, and for the advice and critique! TJ
