This Is How It Feels (cover)
on: May 20, 2019, 15:24:07

Hi guys, here's a live 1+1 recording of my cover of the great Richard Ashcroft song 'This Is How It Feels' please let me know what you think. For those that have heard my recordings before please let me know how my voice as I really i've turned a corner lately (still not great but it's progress!)

don't know the original, your version sounds good & honest to me. Tempo is picking up during the song, and the singing in the mix is a bit broad in the room, but as the message of the song is very understandable. Keep it up!

Thank you, yeah it really was a live recording quick take with little thought given to the set up of the mic really. I'm keen to get some feedback as i'm playing it live for the first time over the weekend :)

Hi @realkevm

There's a lot of raw emotion in this song - sounds like it might be quite emotionally and physically hard to sing.

The tempo seemed to speed up - not sure if that's intentional or not.

It's a reasonably long song at 4 mins - and if it's just you and your guitar then it might be good to vary things a little. Maybe start softer, less intense vocals and then add the intensity so that the song builds.

It's hard when it's just you to keep songs interesting and varied so I think it's important to let is build so that the listener doesn't switch off.

Good luck when you play it live this weekend

cheers

Jurgen

@realkevm  Lots of feeling in your vocal ( sounds  more confident than on some other songs you`ve posted). I don`t know the original but you`d get me listening  at your gig.

Robert
