This thread has helped me think about the process of recording - ie I am singing to the full backing track on this one, when previously I had got into the habit of muting a lot of the counter melodies and 'clutter' and singing along to just a basic accompaniment. But more importantly not having playback too loud in my headphones when singing. I know I was blasting it out too much this time, which did help me get into the 'emotional' side of the performance, but then at the expense of vocal accuracy in one or two places.

I have recently been singing with only one headphone on and it has really helped me to be more accurate in general. Hearing my voice in the room as I record has also helped me with my microphone technique.

Good tip @Leonard Scaper . Come to think of it I've often seen video clips or photos of artists doing the same thing in the studio. Haven't tried it myself yet, but I will do now, thanks  ::thumb::

I think there should be a singing and recording vocals thread somewhere on here. I would probably read it every day!  ;D
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Perhaps we should start a "Singing and Recording Vocals" thread in the  Songwriting Ingredients section. I think it might be something that lots of folks could add to....might even become sticky-worthy.   ;)
