    thx bleeding. Good to see a Cat fan. I was surprised not to find from the responses here. i have posted 3 cat songs here till now. Moonshadow, Lady D'arbanville and Father and Son.

    Although I could be wrong, as far as I know "seasons in the sun" is not a Cat song. Quoting from http://www.artistfacts.com/detail.php?id=37

    "Cat Stevens didn't write or sing 'Seasons in the Sun'. Terry Jacks wrote it. Cat Stevens was a much better songwriter than that!"

    So is "Cat's in the Cradle" Both are beautiful songs and often linked with Cat in discussions.

    I will try to learn both and post. Do U post on youtube? What's ur ID? Sharing videos makes learning faster for self learners like me. I mean strumming chords finger position etc. thx and rgds

    vivni good to know u like some cat songs. thx for watching and suggesting improvemets

    @Bleeding again. I found some more info on Seasons.

    quoting from http://www.superseventies.com/1974_3singles.html
    ""Seasons in the Sun" had been written in French in 1961 under the title of "Le Moribond" (The Dying Man), by Belgian poet-composer Jacques Brel."

    What I understood is that Jacques Brel wrote it becos when was dying of cancer which listeners didn't knew then. Do check the link. Also sketch of Terry's career is given. It is an everlasting emotional song. thx to bring it up bleeding.

    Absoultely right akky. Honestly, I am more than happy just to be able to do this much. Unlikely to improve.
    In order not to disturb ppl next door, I make it even worse by going in still lower voice and avoiding plectrum. Works, I am still alive :-D Not suprisingly, some utube n kirk members spotted exact technical reason. awesome ppl!
    josh? gosh, man am 32 and lost all josh and hosh :-D. thx for watchin some, btw do u like Cat Songs? rgds

    You've got a really nice strumming hand....and you've got the potential voice I think. It's sad that you won't be improving (for reasons you did not state).

    I really like your hand movements in the video.

    thanks for watching bjr, appreciate your time

    Infact I struggle with strumming, even more with a plectrum. I want to use and learn using it though. I am using thumb for the time being to strum and mostly fingerpicking. But I can use plectrum.

    Personally I believe all voice are good, controlling it is probably the key. Some people dislike Mukesh's voice but like Rafi's, but i like both. Fateh Ali Khan's voice, I like, I know people who dislike. Another is Ila Arun. all awesome singers

    My vocals in this are more what I believe as 'false vocals', because of my tendency while covering. Ronan Keating's cover sounds like his normal voice. I am not sure of technical things though. These articles will be interesting for those who're interested more. Those who like BeeGees voice don't miss these. Check links in that order
