    Hi all ,
    This is my cover of the song 'Pehli Nazar' from the film "Race".
    Many have already covered it earlier but it was my wish to sing it. I would like to get sincere feedback from you all.
    Feel free to offer brickbats on my vocals and guitaring or any other stuff.

    Hey Parry, its a nice cover man. Just a bit to slow i think.
    The vocals are good but there is some room for improvement, for example the feelings in your voice, but i said it many times to you, not to emabarrass you or something like that, but i think you also should know that its one of the most important things when talking about singing!
    Overall a good cover man, one thing more, the audio quality is not so good, the sound is clipping at many places, try to take some distance from your mic when singing the higher parts and also when singing louder!

    Take care man and keep posting!

    Thanks keoraf

    hi keo,
    thanks for the comments. yes once again i understand the feeling part...may be its something intrinsic and one cant act upon it but i will surely try.
    as regards the clip quality. well i have taken the video using my sony dsc S730 digicam. so there's no mic as such which can be moved.
    How else can i make the video? the webcam i have doesn't have good vdo quality.
    Thanks again keoraf .

    i can see improvement but its still not perfect...too slow definitely...and it sounds like you re trying too hard to copy atif aslam's tone....but overall good effort...

    your voice is good.. nicely covered the song, sur thoda bahot unnis bis hai but still audible..

    i somehow felt that u couldn't comprehend the mood of this song, may be because you lowered the tempo of vocals to match up with strumming speed. dont do that. improve your strumming speed rather. i think you modified chords as well to match your scale range. again don't do that; work on your vocals instead. dont modify the song to your comfort, take efforts to learn the intricacies of the song. this is how we learn.

    I dont intend to diminish your efforts though. Its a really nice attempt, but yeah u can do better than that. you got voice man. work on it.

    ohh yeah 1 more thing, this particular song is difficult.. i know how badly i covered it n then i was like ohh man, i cant sing this... its a tough one.

    thanks peaceful ...thanks absolutely_neo

    peaceful words : thanks dear for sharing your thoughts.

    Absolutely_neo : Well oh wat can i say. u have written it threadbare and commented nicely. thanks for taking time for me.
    and hey when u posted ur song quite long bak i listened to it repeatedly for many days. at that time i too felt that i cudnt work it out but it was my wish to cover it. it was a motivation and u sung it very very well and here i am . yes indeed i will work upon the things u indicated.
    thanks again man.

    well seems to me you tried too hard....... especially the vocals part...... you need to have that particular type of voice for this song..... unfortunately you dont.. fortunately you sing very welll..... so i dont really see this song can be improved upon much...... although a try is in order.......

    as someone pointed out.... you need to get that 'feeling' in this song.. which is quite frankly missing...... and your voice cracked at around 4:00.... try working on that.......

    but, you should know that you are indeed a very good talented singer....... if i've discouraged you in any way, dont take me seriously.......try covering another song... you'll surely do better....... just work on the intricacies of each song you try to cover..... cuz the magic lies there and not in the song as a whole!!!

    keep up the good work though!!!
    cheers!
    :beer:

    Thanks sukrut

    Well sukrut thats the most positive comment I have received from a hard critic like you and ofcourse I appreciate that.
    As for discouragement part. No not at all. Infact people like you have been a source of motivation and encouragement for me.
    I dont think i am very talented in singing....may be I will take some vocal training in near future to improve upon that. Only if I had not wasted so many of my younger years in things other than music I think I would have been a little ahead.
    Will work out some more as advised.
    Thanks once again.

    overall, gud cover but next time make sure that ur guitar is louder than your voice.

    Peace

    I won't b diplomatic ...but it's a good cover overall....yeah! maybe it's a little slow...but the only thing i missed was feelings...so it quite sounded like u were singing focusing at a point..I mean..singing by heart makes ur voice more dyanamic..so tht was missing..and only if u had sung with feel to it..it also wudn't have sounded slow!
    .....wat i really liked about ur voice is.. u r able to sing with tremors!!...u know a kind of thrill in ur voice...it's very hard to do tht...Farhan of Jal band does it often...so have u practiced their songs a lot....anyways...keep up the good work ya..

    Thanks faiqrock and anstrangelover

    faiqrock : well thanks man. Most people say that you shud have a high vocals and the instrument is there only as a companion not a substitute. thanks for taking time and listening.

    anstrangelover : well dear i have listened ur songs..and u r really good at it.
    and yes if only i knew how to get feelings in my voice!!..i still have no idea no matter how hard i try..may be it will come naturally..i have no idea.

    thanks for taking time and effort to comment...looking forward for your and keoraf song.
