Not bad, not bad. A tad echo-ey by not bad.

Pretty bad, I think. It's just not in tune. And the voice has a poor tone. Poor pronunciation is forgivable for people who don't speak native English and horrible quality is forgivable for people who don't have a good mic. But you can rise above that if you have a good voice and know how to sing well. I appreciate the effort here, but it just didn't rise above those problems.

It's pretty good. Not amazing, but I do like the guitar.

Scary to begin with as I got flashbacks to the last track featuring this guy. But thankfully, once the singing started it got better. Not amazing but appreciated.

Just get a guitar in tune beforehand, next time. Is that too much to ask?

Peace,
Adam.

Hey! I might be greedy and a bastard but I'm not .. uh.. what was that other thing?

Of course s tuned guitar is always going to sound better but thems the cuts of being an 'amateur' (I say amateur because I'm a neophyte at most musical instruments)

But I get the gist of what A.B is saying.

Rafael,

Hey, not bad, not bad. The vocal staying in the right key much improved from Love of My Life. I have to agree that your guitar needs to be more accurately tuned beforehand. . but nice arpeggios and very decent playing.

I also noticed at the end of the line "when you say you didn't love me anymore.. . ahhhhh, ahhhhh", you varied from the original quite a bit... I guess anyone doing a cover can make those changes. Artistic license I guess.

But, hey, I admire anyone willing to even attempt making a Queen cover.

Dave

Good attempt but Nevermore is one that should be left alone IMO. I like the use of guitar.

Terrible. Voice and guitar. Awful.


Well... Let's say that something more could have been done...

It's a step forward in comparison to LOML, anyway...

Maybe try with something easier, next time... What about "Crazy little thing" or something like that... Something more suitable for your voice?

C'mon Rafael, try it again... We are waiting for another improvement!!!
