GREAT playing!!!

Your vocals were low in the recording. Was that on stage too? Sounds like you are trying to sing loudly.

Two pronged answer!

1 - A non sound guy sound guy coupled with a new monitor (that was too low - I cranked it up a bit more later mid first set)
2 - I've sucked at singing for the few years I've been playing and I'm just starting to fight my way through the weeds.

The singing didn't sound bad at all, very Jerry like at times. But you sounded like you were stretching for volume. that'll hurt you every time. Do some deep breaths and hold it. Like you are doing a who hold your breath underwater longer when you were a kid! that'll help alot!

I dug it!

Nice monitors on stage and PLENTY loud. Not the best viewpoint but the audio is pretty good!

Simple Twist of fate from a couple weeks ago. Tough one for me to sing but man, not sure what it takes to get some decent reverb on the vocals... Nice bass solo by Rusty the Scoob too! :cool:

Good audio but the vid is a tad dark. As a matter of fact, I was standing in pitch black all night! The crowd of 12 really rocked!
