Ok I'll repeat myself,
Forget the voice, it won't be mine singing it if I can help it,
forget the dodgy guitar playing, that's also for someone
else to do, these songs are, in effect, SKETCHES of what
I have written.
I know how I WANT them to sound but don't have the
knowhow to do it.
I'd really like to hear someone else's version of these songs.

Does anyone want to give it a go?

Wow thanks for the positive feedback, I really thought
I'd get verbal abuse or something.
Don't panic guys I know its not up to record company
standards and it will take me a while to come even close to it.

Guitar probably goes out of tune a bit because I almost fell
off my chair while I was playing that song. I also need to get
some new strings on my accoustic.

Thanks for the encouragement though.
(hugs) all round!

I left the sneeze in on purpose, I thought it would add comedy value.

No sorry, Ellis is my married name, my maiden name was Vinci.
I kept the name after the split because it was just easier.

I could probably manage it better if someone else played the guitar and then I could concentrate on singing a bit louder, the other problem I had with recording this, was if I sang too loud the mic cuts out and you get silence.
I've tried three differnt mics and I get the same problem.
I still think these songs would sound better sung by someone else though.

I'm a lot better at artwork hehehe. blink.gif

i agree with mrbungle, you shouldn't be so hard on yourself...i know art is a personal thing and maybe i was a tad harsh in my critique. but i don't really believe in holding back if someone asks for opinions

your singing does have a lot of potential and i know you should be the one singing...it just needs work

i'd be the first to tell you that my singing needs work, and my guitar playing, and my keyboard playing, and and and

it's part of life biggrin.gif

You're ok, I just thought maybe you'd had a bad day
and needed to vent spleen at someone and to be honest,
I agreed with most of what you said but like I was saying
before, these are just basic outlines of how I want
the songs to sound.
I can't really work on my voice, that's as good as it gets.
I used to have a fairly good voice, I was in plays and on stage,
sung solos in front of large crowds and even entered competitions,
then when my son was born I screamed so much I ripped
a vocal chord. It's never really recovered, so that's kind of why
I want someone else to sing it.
As for recording the guitar and voice seperate,
I'm not sure how to on just a basic sound recorder on the pc.
I'm good at art but computers are scary!
Thanks for all the help and tips though guys.
You are all gems.
