Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

I really did enjoy the vocals!
Actually, it seems one of these rare cases where the vocals are significantly better than the rest of the band :D Not much fun listening to the guitars, though. The solo is OK, but the rhythm parts sound bad in just about every way I can imagine (the parts themselves sound unimaginative to me, sound played not quite exactly on time, and the overall quality of the guitar sound is not enjoyable).
Are the drums programmed?
However, I liked the video. And, as I say, the vocals are way above everything else and really nice, actually. Perhaps a little extra variation of the melody would help. But the overall quality of the vocals is
