That's actually a painting my father did of me in a house we lived in when I was 18.Benee Wafers said:Jeff
First thing... get rid of that really dorky picture on your soundclick site.
No offense man, just trying to be helpful, pro active.
Yeah great tone but pretty much like everybody elses in that field but what can you do? Ya gotta pick one right?
I like your soloing and fills. Not run of the mill, a little bit interesting and sounds like you got something to say on that thar git box.
I like your use of the wah.
I think you may not be playing in the right key for your voice. Or push your vocals more. Right now your voice/singing is kind of no where, stuck in grey as opposed to black or white. Your not using it to portray emotions, very well.
You're not going for it.
Can't get enuff to comment on your lyrical abilities.
Obviously good enuff to make money at playing, don't know about making a living off it and as of yet ( from what little I've heard ) nothing yet established enuff to break through.
My advice: Work on your vocals man. You can really sing on your guitar try to get that happening with voice and I think you could have something.
Otherwise write the songs play the guitar and get an indivdualist singer.
p.s. Like the cover. Do you really live in that place? Its really got mojo
Thanks, Lolligagger. I'm not quite sure what you mean about adding "air" to the vocals, please expand on that if you can.lolligagger said:Keefsdad,
I like your guitar sounds a lot...very modern. Your licks are tasteful and your tone is modern...nice edgy sound that make the hair stand up on the back of my neck.
I have to tell you that I am the worst singer in the world...okay, now that confession is out of the way, I do find (and my critics) that when I put just a little more "air" in my vocals the sound of my voice becomes borderline acceptable. I find I can impart a little more emotion to the song than when I'm singing it straight. It may not be at all what you had in mind, but a little self imposed "vocal effect" might appease your detractors.
How about posting a few more tracks? Sounds to me like you are on to something. Forgot to mention...I like the lyrics. :rockon:
