Thought they were all very good except the Priest song. Not very many singers could hit the high notes in that song very well. There are other Priest songs you would sound good on though. You do have a good voice.

Not bad brother. You certainly have not chosen easy songs to sing. Your range is pretty lengthy. Have you sung any Who? You'd probably handle Warren Hayne's vocals well also.

Fantastic job on 'Old Before My Time' and I think the guitar playing while singing is pretty damn good!

You have an excellent voice but you may want to avoid the Priest until you get some singing lessons in. (Victim of Changes in particular.) Not to say that you don't do a competent job at covering the Priest tunes, hell, you do better than most who attempt it, but you don't want to risk wrecking your voice with songs you're not prepared for.

Love Soulshine. You have a rich and soulful voice. That doesn't come across as much when you go into those really high notes like on the Boston stuff but it comes through on Soulshine.

Here is an important question. How come everybody (or almost everybody) sings with an American accent no matter what accent they speak with?

thank you all..you are great..I dont know why so many sing with an American accent..in my case i think it had to do with listening to alot of american music through the years..

thanks for the nice comments people..my dad said something about my singing som days ago,he said.You can hit those high notes,but remember,just because you can hit them dosent mean it sounds the best..he think my voice is suited for more ABB stuff than Boston.I love to learn and gonna take some lessons now soon and learn to keep my voice in shape,because there are gonna be alot of Boston etc in the cover band i sing in..

cheers..

I agree with your Dad. You should work your vocal artistry within your ideal range. If you are going to belt out those high notes definitely look to preserve your voice. Look what happened to Robert Plant.

I have always said you have a natural ability. Learn proper support technique(s) and stay away from things that ya have to stretch to reach for. Better to stay at home and enjoy your art than travel to places that can eventualy even ruin that.

Thanks for sharing

Completely unnecessary...If you have to adjust the key, unless you change it drastically, 99% of listeners would not notice. You have a solid voice. If you keep trying to sing out of your range, you will damage it. It doesn't matter how many voice lessons you take. Sing within your range, and you'll be fine.

thanks you all once again. its just the past year i started to sing songs that goes very high..like Boston,Priest etc..i wanted to challenge myself,because i knew i could hit some high notes before..but i know its importatn to get the right techniqe. Sometimes i dont know if i sing otu of my range..Because some songs have very high notes and i can hit them without problem,others songs i struggle with..songs that Warren Haynes sing i have always feel comfortable to sing along to..Warren imo gotta also have a pretty high voice at times..He can hit some really high notes i he wants to..but i will try the best i can to stay in my range.. here is a vid my dad commented on today..its a snippet of a Iron Maiden song and he said it was a perfect exampel of singing a bit out of my range..

cheers..

Warren does sing very high at times. He has developed a technique that lets him hit those notes with ease. Even so he does not sing as high as Brad Delp did or Steve Perry does. At least not routinely. Anyway thanks for sharing.

When Warren sings songs like Helter Skelter I get nervous that he is gonna blow out his vocal chords. Would rather see him avoid songs where he really has to strain his voice.
