Answering your 2nd question about lessons 1 through 4. Give each lesson one or 2 days before moving on to the next just so you can get some flexibility and coordination in your voice. These are exercises that can be done for a long period of time and you should notice as you're doing them over a period of time that your voice is feeling better and better....

Here is a rendition of Resurrection Day by Paul Thorne. Added some lead guitar to this as well. Paul Thorne is a very interesting song writer. I find him to be both deeply reverent and irreverent in his song writing. I think I relate to that.

Here is a gritty, dark and moody rendition of the Simon and Garfunkel song The Sound of Silence. Really had to work at singing this song and it bumps up in the third verse. Recorded this on the Gibson songwriter and recorded it on the Tascam DP008. Any and all feedback and comments would be appreciated to help move it along. P.S. feeling lonely in Open Mic and wish other would join me here with their recordings. Bud

Here is a song called Seasons from the movie Man of Steel. It is played in a F# tuning which creates a very unique sound on the acoustic guitar. It has some challenging vocals for my range and really forced me to work on my falsetto voice. any and all feedback is more than welcome. Bud

Tried to use the uploader but still is not working for me so I just added the link below. This song pushes the top of my range and is a very fun genre of music to play. Any and all comments to improve it are very welcome.

Sorry but I could not get the open mic down loader to work so I posted a YouTube link. Here is a rendition of Ain't No Grave in Drop D tuning. I really tried to to dig deep into my diaphragm for this song to bring out the emotion and feel of it and to match the deep base of the Drop D tuning. Any and all suggestion are always appreciated.

Sorry Guys I could still not get the uploader to work so I posted a YouTube link. This is a new take on that famous old hymn Amazing Grace. I slowed it down a little and added my own favor to it. Any tips, help, or input is always welcome. Bud

Tried to load this using the busking uploader but could not get it to work so I just linked it to You Tube. Decided to try this Al Green song since I wanted to work on the top of my vocal range. This tune is way up at the top of my range and it brought out my inner rocker, LOL. Any suggestions to move it along would be much appreciated. Bud

Hi Jim, I had actually figured a couple of the things you mention, thanks for sharing those and more. Yes, your sign is absolutely cool!
And it's true, a student wants to feel as if they're there with you in the studio, so I'm glad you get where I'm coming from.
And yes, I'll be at IGC 2015 since I'm a guitarteacher at Totally Guitars (TGVanessa) and for that part of the instructors-staff. For the lessons that I record for the site, I sing a lot (actually I LOVE singing, if I can't sing, I get bored easily. I leave the instrumentals for Neil ), so I'm glad for TV and for you to be part of this years camp as well.
Thanks again for your response and I'll see you in September!
