  1. Thanks davie! I just looked up Silverchair and it's definitely my style of rock. I think I do hear the resemblance actually. My biggest influences are Tim Mcllrath of Rise Against for his lyric writing, John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls because of the many wonky tunings he puts his guitars in. Sonething that I adopted from him because it's really the only way I can my voice to sound decently. Last but not least David Gilmour of Pink Floyd for his guitar capabilities and sound. The guy is the real reason why I even picked up guitar. For mics to record the guitar i'm using a sennheiser md421 and a couple of pedals for tone purposes and for vocals i'm using a Shure Super 55. I do plan on adding some guitar solos on the istrumental parts of the song as well as some sort of percussion eventually, sometime in the near future.
  2. I know the feeling I live in an apartment too so it can be hard to let loose vocally depending on the time of day. Just practice as much as you can during the day or when nobody is around. High notes can be much easier if you can losen your chest area up and get that air flowing through you. If you're worried about going out of tune when letting loose just practice singing to a series of higher notes with a keyboard or guitar if you have anything of that sort around. It could take time but always remember that practice makes perfect!
  3. Hey minkonn! Wow this is something special. You have a very strong sense of sincerity to your voice or just something in that strook me. You have a great sense of rhythm in your voice and on your instrument. My only piece of advice is to sing a little louder because at some spots the ukelele drowned your vocals out. Great work man!
  4. Hey there Misha I don't think your voice is bad at all. Kinda reminds me of Alanis Morissette in a way. Your voice sounds very strong but in your recording I sense you may be holding back somewhat. You have a very good soft voice but I was hoping you would let loose somewhere in your recording and really take a bite into these vocals but what you have here is still awesome. Yes you definitely have a promising voice so please keep practicing!
  5. Thanks kickintone! I am thinking what you mean by "heartbeat" effect is maybe some percussive instruments? Like a slapbox or something to that extent? I do plan on adding some lead guitar parts to the instrumental pieces between the verses so hopefully that will balance the song out some more. I'll keep your advice in mind man. Much appreciated!
  6. Hey hey everyone! I was hoping to get some feedback on this song I wrote about the current situation of our world. I'm not the greatest singer nor do I really know what i'm doing when it comes to vocals so if anybody has any advice or criticism let me hear it! Stay healthy everybody. Hope this is enjoyable https://youtu.be/hM0B5XTtOiE
  7. Hey guys. I made a song about this mess that the Corona is causing. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! https://youtu.be/hM0B5XTtOiE
  8. thanks highmtn! i'll keep all of that in mind for when i mix the next cover.
  9. Finally have another one that I think I am fairly happy with. If anybody has some tips on how to improve the vocals I am all ears. Hope you guys enjoy.
  10. Thank you very much Maestro for your feedback. I do have determination to become really good at what I do. Music in general is something I would love to always improve on.
  11. Thank you for the feedback:) im glad you find my style to be interesting as well. I will make more for sure, thanks again man.
  12. Been a really long time since I've posted on here. Happy Sunday my good friends! haha. I decided to do this cover of a really popular Rise Against song that I fell in love with many moons ago. Anyway, you guys enjoy it. Let me know what you all think.
  13. Honestly, i'm not too sure. I think it might be the pickups cause the screws don't look that long at all. I guess i should try and measure the depth in the body where the pockets are for the pickups as well as how big the screws/pick ups themselves may be.
  14. My guitar is indeed a Vintage Re-issue. I can certainly post a photo of the underside of the pickguard. Hopefully you can see everything alright, if not just let me know. Thanks onelife. Edit: Well, I tried to upload a photo through this post but for whatever reason, it isn't letting me do so. So I will try to upload it on the very first post of mine.
  15. So the problem that I am having is that the EMG set itself doesn't go flush against the body. Although as it screws into the body it will look as if it is flush against, but the problem that I have found that comes with that is the pick ups don't go all the way into their proper places. So when I try to set-up the pickups, they will raise as high as possible, but when you attempt to lower them, the screws that you use to adjust those pickups start to just come out and the pickup doesn't go anywhere. My guess it is the battery for the pickups that is causing the issue, but in the body structuring I just have no idea where to put it. So If anyone has any suggestions as to what I should try, I would appreciate it greatly.
