Nice job!

Keep singing you'll get a lot better only with time.
Thanks.
------------------------------
Also, I've hinted everywhere I've published two of those tracks (one a translation of the other), that I wrote them for a special someone. Well, I wrote them for Foxi Ravenheart. These two:

2. 私はあなたを愛しているので、私を憎むことはありません。
3. I love you, so do not hate me.
That's really really sweet! Thank you so much, I mean it ^////^
The entire album is sung beautifully, too! I love it!
Thanks.

I'm getting bored, and I had difficulty recording Dazed and Confused (I'll probably try again later), so I'm working on a project called Project: Cosmopolitan, by singing many Folk Songs from several languages. Here's what I got so far:

Australia


Click Go the Shears (Already Recorded)
Lavender's Blue (Dilly Dilly) (Already Recorded)
Waltzing Matilda (Already Recorded)

Great Britain

Greensleeves (Already Recorded)

I'm doing all the research I can, but I'm desperate for suggestions, of any folk or classic song (even children's songs) to record. I'm gonna try my voice in several different languages, so language isn't a matter. PLEASE, suggest SOMETHING.

I'm not dead! School is back so I've been somewhat busy, and when I'm not busy, my parents and sister are normally nearby, but I got in a couple recordings.

By request of a friend, Cover of Lights by Ellie Goulding.
By suggestion of a different friend Cover of Lights by Ellie Goulding (Natural Voice).
Original song belongs to Ellie Goulding and other writers.

I've also got a recording of a Puttin' on the Ritz cover, but I seem to have misplaced it.

Hey! So, those are pretty nice! I have some suggestions:
I notice you have good pitch and rythmn is pretty decent. (good basic music theory stuffs)
First off- do you do any warmups before you start singing?

What you need to work on is your vocal technique. There's some lessons and videos on youtube to help you find vocal warmups and such that will benefit you GREATLY!
This guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5hS7eukUbQ doesn't have the exact same warmups as we do in Madrigals/Concert Choir HOWEVER, they are basically the same concepts and if you ever want me to I can try recording myself to give an example of things I do as well if you'd like.

TRUST ME! It takes a while to get used to doing these weird things but they're routine after a while... or years... idk. Also I would recomend joining a choir at school or church or whatever. YOU WILL LEARN A LOT! Also singing in parts is very good for learning tempo, vocal and tonal control, and it's also a lot of fun.
And make sure to do some warmups before singing to loosen up those vocal muscles, and learn the techniques to improve your vocal quality! You're on a good track towards singing beautifully and that's good! Infact you're a bit more comfortable than me with singing alone. I'm used to singing with people and creating harmonies. (I would glady make something where I sing with you and could also do a multi-track recording of myself as a test to see what can be done.)

Could you send me the Waltzing Matilda cover? I've been listening to it my whole life and really wanna hear it!!

Thanks for tips and suggestions. They are dually noted. I go to a school where music and choir is non-existent (I'll be honest with you; I don't know how that would work.)

And, thanks Unknown.
