    Hey budz .. Tried to do something different courtesy Wizzy .. This song is dedicated to u Wiz ..

    I really Liked the song especially the lead ..

    link --> (Preferable)

    link -->

    looking forward for honest feedback .. suggestions/corrections/criticizm welcome ..

    PS - It would be better if u download the song n listen to it than the low fi version .. coz quality goes down in low fi .. n track loses a li'l feel ..

    Hit the keys now ..

    EDIT : Chords Used .. Continuous progression of

    Em - [022000]
    D - [000232]
    Cmaj7 - [032000] --- I've played elsewhere wid modification but this works good ..
    Asus2 - [002200]

    and in the Bridge - C A C A(Asus2)

    Good one done.

    Guitars are nice to hear.
    Abay yaar but vocals wise it is same.

    On high pitches the voice doesnt carry enuff power.
    Some places the voices hits bummer notes.

    And d00d you have lowered the chorus part by one octave?

    I gotta go back and listen to original.

    But for the first time english song, it is commendable.

    @Rahul .. Thankies bud ..

    @vini .. Choice of song was made from Wizzy's suggestion of 5 songs .. so credit for that goes to Wiz ;) .. thanx for the appreciation ..

    @alpha .. actually I did have a tough time singing this song coz i'm not used to such themes(so its difficult initially to sing with the feel).. I'm tryin hard to improve muh vocals .. n get That PUNCH at some notes which u're talkin bout ..

    The chorus part is in the same octave .. not lowered ..
    n Boy .. It wasn't muh first ANGREZI cover :p: .. I've sung a few pops earlier ..

    Thanx for the feedback man .. I'l try more such stuff ..

    @Bubz .. So sweet to hear from u .. Thanx a zillion u showed up .. <3

    @alpha .. I've played the acoustic version of the song .. surprisingly .. the link which u gave me chorus is an octave higher .. But The acoustic version which i have he's sung in the same octave .. only the last chorus is an octave higher ..

    Also the singing style is somewhat different in the link which u gave me n there's no whistlin n leads on Electric .. v happened to listen to different versions ..

    ok heard it...

    fisrt of all all those who think this is a good change gimme good was my idea.

    now for the comment.
    guitars were nice...but yeah the vocals were a bit of a letdown. Im not saying it was a bad was very well done...agreed that u might have got another version of the song which resulted with the chorus sung in a lower octave thing..yada yada. u got a good voice dude...but it didnt show enough passion (or power as alpha said).
    anyway....the recording quality was very good....and it is always good to see a change.

    overall quite impressive actually....its been quite long since u recorded so I wasnt expecting a good one.

    next sugesstion....try Harvest by Opeth ;)

    reps for u......and ur welcome ;)

    I would recommend Thin Air by Pearl Jam.

    Thankies wiz .. Good to hear from u n surely reps for u too :) .. I'l try even harder next time n I'l get used to such songs only by singin more n more of 'em I guess .. till then .. cheers with Beers :beerbob:

    @alpha .. The studio release which u linked me to is cool man .. the beats are amazing ..

    Another thing guys .. I'm having a really tough time overlapping in audacity man .. The timings jz go helter skelter even though i overlap (leads,vocals etc) properly .. When i press the stop button .. the whole thing shifts n becomes total mess .. I was thinking of making a thread for this .. Is it the mic ? is it some setting damn I have to do many takes n a li'l editing always which is frustrating .. what shall i do ? :(

    ^ I know.
    I always said Audacity is crap.

    That problem is due to latency in your soundcard, which audacity doesnt corect for.
    It is not your mistake or your hardware's mistake.

    Get a pro-multi track recording software. ;)

    @alpha .. I have Adobe Audition 1.5 n Fruity Loops producer edition .. but I find it damn complicated to operate .. Audacity is very simple .. but i guess I'l have to trade off now..

    @slash thanx man .. :)
