Hi Klara, This is better. A better mix, guitar behind your voice. I can hear you voice much better. I was able to play with the song/audio in audacity with its catalog of effects/EQ/etc. Using the compressor helps to even out volume levels. Now if I were to write the lyrics down from the audio, I'm not sure I'd get them right or all down. Some top 40 radio play I can't make out all the lyrics either, so take this as you may. Articulation. In speech, articulation is done different than it is in singing. The shape of the mouth and tong. I'm not a voice trainer, though I have taken a few lessons, and even if I were a voice trainer I could not do so over this internet media. If I knew all the lyrics my mind would probably hear them, But I don't know them, so... I'm being honest.

It art class, drawing I, we were taught to draw what we see, not what we think we see. To do this we would take a photograph and chop it up into little squares and not knowing what the big picture was, we were each given one of the squares to draw on a larger given scale. Then all these larger squares were put together and in amazement we'd get something that looked very much like the original. This is how artist can draw photographically.

Singing is sorta like that, but using certain shapes of the mouth and tong, not just the vocal cords, to articulate a sound and change in the sound. Singing and saying "e" are notably different in how you use your tong.

In mic use, there is the 3 inch rule. either be closer than 3 inches or further away than three. Something about 3 inches being where the mic can pick up the pops in "p" and such. I don't recall ever hearing you have this 3 inch problem. You are certainly capable of volume (there is another word for this but I can't think of it at the moment... presence, projection??? ).

Anyway, I'm looking forward to your next song.

"Ride on" is one of my favorite songs from Rua, and I am very happy that such a talented singer, performed the song so nice...
Well done Klara!!

Listened and watched again. Used to be a speech teacher. Know a little about mic-ing up for voice while recording. "Kiss" that mike -- get a little more intimate with it, bring your lips closer to it and work for a fuller tone. Don't let the guitar pull you back and away from the mike. You're singing to us, but let that mike think you're singing to it.

You really do have your own sound, Girl!

LI's talented GIRL does it again. I keep wondering when that break is going to come -- so long as it doesn't take you away from LI and us.

This is a great and truly "you" version of this song. It's your own and shows your skills at interpretation. As Simon Cowle says, "we know the song is well done when it's the same but DIFFERENT from the original performance. Klara, if you had a studio and sound engineer -- WOW!!!!
