Wow neophytte and zurf you two have been busy, love it.  I sat and listened to them all today now I am back from holiday and have plenty of internet access again.   So congratulations you two, very impressive the sheer number you guys managed to perform this month.

Thanks smile

I agree neophytte, you are a human jukebox, you sure can turn them out.  You did one song that i never heard of before (Dedicated Follower of Fashiion by the Kinks) so that was a new one to me.   Probably vocally in my opinion ~Don`t Want Me Baby~ was your best vocally and possibly ~Living Doll~ .   I thought ~Those Were The Days~  well done but maybe a bit low vocally for you?, wondered if a different chord on this song for you?.   I liked the added video of your setup too.

Glad I opened your musical horizon (even if the song is older than me!!) smile

Thanks for the feedback on the songs; those two were the ones I didn't practice beforehand ... and were at the end of the session, so my voice was a bit dry and creaky ..

I like it - I'm not sure it's the best you've done, but that's probably (I'm guessing) because you've been on holidays and not as much practice as normal ...

Not sure if this is a valid comment given that statement above, but I found the vocals very staccato, falling on the beat most times, and I seem to remember this song is a more free-flowing one, where the voice kind of "roams around" the beat - it's a darn hard thing to master, though!!!

But it's a good song choice - really suited you ...

Cheers

Right on! That's what this forum is all about - trying new things to find out where we can improve and have fun doing it! Shoot, I'm still working on Jack and Diane from April.  LOL.  And Smoke on the Water - which I'm just about to a point that it's as good as I'm going to get it, which is not good at all. That scream singing is totally foreign to me, and power chords nearly so.

Got a chance to listen. Nice work. You're strumming has come along nicely.

Got a chance to catch up on Neo's posts.  Good work. It seemed like you weren't as familiar with the lyrics on Don't You Want Me Baby and Those Were the Days as you usually are, but you were on key and the guitar work was good on both. I thought you got a groove going on Those Were The Days, which was really cool because that's not what I'd usually think of as a "grooving" song. It's all about the groove!

But please clean the lens!

Thanks Zurf for having a listen and comments smile

Ok here is my last entry for this month ..............why I picked it I have no idea ........ I couldn`t find a chord (even after trying to transpose it that suited me) so sheer determination won over vocals .......... it was way to deep in parts for me lol

Thanks - those two were the "I've got 10 minutes before I have to go to work" left-overs, so were also the ones not practiced before I got to them ...

Ahh yes, I have a sad story about my iPhone 5s, which got the battery bulge, which pushes the front screen out, which makes the camera go blurry ... fortunately mine didn't explode!! I've replaced it now, but haven't had a chancve to try it out yet ...
