Dave Martin – Madness cover

Vocal Coach Comments:
This song translates surprisingly well to an acoustic version. You have a lovely, bright tone & vibrato. There was subtle use of harmonising technology that you could’ve capitalised on even more. You pretty much nailed that ‘money note’ but it could’ve benefitted from a little more ‘weight’. My main criticism is that there wasn’t much visual performance (it seemed more like a rehearsal) and there were pitchy moments in the live lead vocal and some actual incorrect note choices in the added harmonies.

    To any who watch this video, if you’ve got questions about the Helicon Harmony G-XT pedal, which I use all the time, I’ll be happy to answer!

    Hi there, I only want to ask you, what app do you use on ipad? To organize Lyrics and chords?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don’t know what Dave uses, but I swear by OnSong. It’s easy to use and they do a decent job of keeping it updated.
