Vocal Coach comments from Janine Le Clair

Richard – great song choice! I think this song is within your range, but pushes you to stretch – and I encourage you to do more of that. As an exercise I suggest you sing along to a version in or around this key, whereby you can sing along with the artist – and focus on the pitch accuracy. Secondly, sing along to an accompaniment already created (perhaps record your guitar first) and use it as a track – this way you can focus more on your singing and not have to think about guitar at the same time. You know what you’re doing on the guitar, but you’d be surprised how much harder it is to concentrate on two instruments at once until you isolate them. And a golden tip that we should all remember is to always practice with a metronome or beat. We all need assistance keeping in time. Keep up the good work:)
