Please, actually try to build up your technique and stamina before attempting a one-take recording so it has less risk of sounding like infuriating bullshit.

This thread seems to be played up simply for jokes, and that's no better than shitposting.

Dude, you need to stop. These songs are not just challenging for you, they are impossible right now. Learn to sing comfortably and controlled in your midrange before trying to sing high songs. You should also work on your technique, so that you can comfortably sing high without just shouting the note.

They're not IMPOSSIBLE. I can sing songs like Rush's A Passage to Bangkok or Cygnus X-1, which are much more demanding than this one.

And i'm not playing it for jokes, it's a CHALLENGE.

I didn't mean impossible as in "You can't do it", I meant impossible as in "You can't make it sound good". Just because you can do it doesn't mean that you should.

Dude, please listen to what we're saying. You could be right about how good your singing is...or a bunch of more experienced, respected users could be right that you need to spend more time warming up, and more time learning to sing on pitch.

I find it hard to take this thread as promoting challenges when there's a post like this about a cover.

To be fair... not that your rush covers are so much better. Seriously nobody's bashing on you, but you completely shut yourself down when faced with critizism and that is just infuriating. Your technique and functional knowledge of your voice is lacking and poor, we're not all pros but many of us are in fact more experienced than you and sometimes you just gotta open up, sit down, shut up, listen and think about it. If you go to the remnants of my own singing thread you will see advice from many experienced users (one of which is incredibly proficient in singing technique and style). I make sure each of those comments and feedback are reflected into my growth not only as a vocalist but as a musician and achiever. And trust me, listening to advice from the big guys REALLY makes an impact once you ground yourself to work on it.

I don't want to make this about myself. I just see a lot of potencial in you go to wastebecause you just don't listen objectively.  Cheers

Post  The Long Shot on Mon Aug 01, 2016 8:50 am

I'm going to be very blunt with you, Queenfan: you are not Geddy Lee and you never will be. At the rate you're going, you won't be singing very long, either. If you want to preserve your voice and actually build some sort of legitimacy to your singing, you *need* to focus more on breath control, tone and improving your overall voice quality, instead of ignoring them and concentrating on range and emulating your favorite singer in every possible facet. I say this not to be a dick, but to help you preserve your voice as you have more time to work on improving it than any of us. I hope you take this advice and what others have said to heart.

I am not trying to sing like Geddy Lee. I'm trying to use my own specific style. When I said I could imitate Lee in my singing thread, I was just saying I can do a good job of imitating him. And i'm not just concentrating on range, i'm concentrating on tone. I value tone more than range, otherwise, i'd gush over Axl Rose and Mike Patton all day. For instance, Steve Perry, Jon Anderson, and David Gilmour don't really have that big of a range, but I like their voices. I try to hit the highs well, and self-conciously work on hitting high notes well. And I don't abuse my voice. I try to not use it too much. I don't want to make the mistakes others did from abuse and overuse, like Geoff Tate. If I really cared more about range then tone, I'd use my horrible mixed voice to hit high notes, and would throw random 6th/7th octave screams all over the place. In fact, I balked at covering Prince's "The Beautiful Ones" for this very reason, It would just be senseless screaming. I make my singing sound melodic.

About my "Chandelier" cover, I did try my hardest to make it sound good. And I could probably make it sound good, I just didn't warm up my voice properly. Soon, i'll upload a better version of it, as well as better "Let It Go", "Take On Me", and "Dream On" I just put the note there to warn people that it wasn't very good. I also don't balk at criticism. I respond to it. For instance, Ollie critisized me for uploading covers the day I wrote them. I listened to his advice, and have since been waiting  a few days before uploading covers. I also make sure my covers sound good before uploading. If there was a part that sounded bad, I re-do it to make it sound better. This thread is different, as it's one take, first try. But otherwise, I do that.

Oh, and Geddy's not my favorite. Freddie Mercury has a better voice then him, especially in the '80s/'90s.

Hope you guys understand.

The song challenge will go on, next up will probably be something by Rush.

No, no; you don't understand. We're not asking you to re-do your covers.

stop fucking your voice, and take the time to actually practice good technique instead of just crudely shouting highs.

I did indeed read the posts, and I responded to them in my post above.

Getting really disappointed this had to happen to a thread which had so much promise.

It was the valid criticism that ruined the thread, and not the mindless cover-posting?

It was that a thread which had so much potential turned into everyone bashing me over a silly cover. If you have criticism for my singing, please take it to my singing thread.

So now it's not valid because it's not in your singing thread? It's 'bashing' because you post bad covers on purpose, and then you're surprised that people tell you to stop? You feel offended that your voice is not perfect and we have valid advice for you to move forward? If you can't take the criticism, don't post any covers, and if you don't listen to this advice, you will lose your voice. No, you're not the exception.
