Recorded vocals today. Tomorrow I'll listen to them and if they sound authentic that's it.
I've sung really comfortably, in terms of sound. Just a little bit of delay effect in the headphones, and everything has melted together nicely.
Info I've gathered from the internets on singing raspy:
1) It's better to start with a clean voice (aaaaa) and then add raspiness gradually (ajjjjjjj). Otherwise you might strain your voice --I forgot to do this, and, being new to this style, after the third take I was gasping for my life.
2) A good starting point is thinking you're holding your breath.
3) A definition that I loved: "you use less air and more power".
The "redux" system has also contributed to make the session a short, tremendous blast. After the recording session I was in a state of "eustress", a word I once read online, ugly but very useful: it is the kind of stress you get for a good reason, when you're euphoric. Also, I've lost a lot of fluids and I never had yearned so much for a yerba mate in my life... Hmm...
In the physical arrangements I have also upped my DIY game with the pop filter, which now is detachable and simpler (for the paper I tried using a coffee filter instead of toilet paper). I could have maybe added some kind of anti-reflection on my back, but it will have to wait for upcoming iterations.
I have a guitar and I'm gonna use it
