Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Do you do any vocal exercises before recording? While you’re still feeling the effects of the sickness, it can help ease your folds into vocalizing. Even just humming 5 note scales throughout your range with a nice deep supported breath can help your confidence of tone. My vocal regimen consists of...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Frankie Big Face: I really like this one. The beginning/verses remind me strongly of “can’t fight this feeling,” so I really don’t get the musical theater vibe you were talking about. My favorite thing about it is how you go from the verse to the chorus, bringing the vocals to the front and filling...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

New Ugly review of round 3 went up last night! http://podcast.songlander.com/?name=2019-05-22_newuglynurein14-3.mp3 I listened to this (finally). I enjoy your banter. I will talk to my drummer about changing up his timbre and style. Sometimes he's like a computer, that guy. Just FTR, I didn't do an...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

can i just defend myself: the "i missed out" is a sample, i did copy it straight across, pitch shifted two copies to form the harmony, promise!! Uh, you won. What are you defending exactly? :D But since you brought it up, I listened to the song you "sampled" (which is great, btw) and it was definit...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

[*]00:15:43 - Frankie Big Face Hey you guys. I appreciated all of your comments about my song, good and bad. They make sense and the criticism is reasonable. I do feel like maybe I've heard the complaint before that you're not sure exactly what the lyrics mean or what the song is about. As someone ...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

BTW, I have been to Madison and it is a charming little city. I don't think of it as a tourist attraction - just enjoy the vibe. (Maybe I'm wrong about this - happy to be shown otherwise!) If you want tourism, rent a car and head to Chicago, I say. (Is there a train? That would be even better. Chica...

Sam, stop trying to apply logic to the judging. Have you learned nothing in your 150 years of competing in Nur Ein!?!?

Rain Watt's song is amazing. Well-deserved win and the player to beat in this competition as far as I can tell. You're great.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Remember when we could submit songs like this and not get eliminated? (Not this remix - the original.) I never could submit a song like that and not get eliminated. I do remember when champions did their job of judging the next year. :p I forge my own path, Mike. You should know that by now. I have...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

The sample was probably annoying in its original context but it's super annoying here. Yeah, I'm into electronic sounds right now - trying on a new hat. Dang it! I'm slow like my song's tempo! What a missed opportunity to use this vocal sample I still have. https://soundcloud.com/xtravar/i-dont-wan...

Frank is like one of my older cousins, I'm always trying to impress him, I care too much what he thinks.
Just saw this. You are definitely right. No matter how much or how little you care, it's too much! :mrgreen:

For the record, I love your OCD. It's endearing.

Frank said: It's a little creepy that you have that at your fingertips. I bet if you dig deeper, you'll find this is not the first time I compared you to Mike and the Mechanics.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

The tempo makes it difficult for me to dig this - it's so slow. I don't know. I know I know I know I know I know if I were listening to your hi-hat all week, I'd find mine exceptionally slow, too. Fair criticism. When the Spirit calls me to be downtempo, I must abide, regardless of competing agains...

Thank you for coming to my TED talk about 1960s British folk rock. Haha. Like all TED talks, I don't have time to actually listen to all of this, but I'm sure you are right. I've never seen RH live and in person, but I've seen him perform on TV and he is always great. Very entertaining and a clever...

I'm cleaning my office this morning, so I thought I would write some reviews. I appreciate all of the time and energy everyone put into their songs, but obviously I'm not going to like everything.
