Just looking for an opinion on one of my tunes. Well not exactly all mine as some Scottish bloke might have had something to do with the lyrics. (o; Ive always been a big folk fan and decided to have a do at a few and perhaps do some gigs. Though i have a low opinion of my voice and wondered what people thought...

Well I personally thought it was totally excellent... both the tune and the quality of playing and singing.

Very best of luck with your initiative!

And I think it is bloody marvelous! I would come and see you play and pay! Guitar and voice are lovely in both tone and quality.

Infact... do you go to any folk clubs or such like? I notice from your myspace you are from the north east.

I agree! Love the tune you've given it and I don't usually like it very much when a tune deviates from what I am used to. Excellent playing and singing. I esp. like that your voice is clear and strong without being overbearing. Good luck and thanks for sharing!! And, welcome to the Mudcat Cafe!

Yes, lovely. Can't imagine why you have a low opinion of your voice - I don't!

I couldn't hear anything when I first got onto the page, so remember you may need to adjust the volume slider on that site's own player (horizontal bar, right above "Plays today").

Nice stuff -

Excellent, folkyshaun! Nothing at all wrong with the voice. Very good!

I think I can sympathize with the feeling. People tell me I have a good singing voice and I've made my living singing for a goodly portion of my life, so I guess it can't be that bad. Nevertheless, just about every time I hear a recording of myself, it's major cringe time! Never quite up to what I want it to be.

But from over here, your voice sounds fine. Clean, clear, and pleasant to listen to.

And the guitar work is really nice. But one suggestion, if I may:   the instrumental interlude between verses is very good, but if it were me, I would not play it between every verse. I'd use it a bit more sparingly. Like seasoning.

Your mileage may vary. . . .

Very nice Shaun. You have a very distinctive voice and I really dug the accompaniment. Hope to hear more.

Yeah nice. Intro is a shad long, but then I don't like long intros to songs. I prefer to get straight at the meat and gravy.
See you on MYSPACE

Nowt wrong wi' the voice. I've never been impressed with mine either, but people keep telling me I've got a lovely voice. You never hear your own voice the way others hear it. And, of course you are the one - being the operator - who knows all the shortcomings. But you've nowt to worry about, I can assure you. Hope to hear you around the clubs.

I added another tune. I tried a straight live take. More of a live feel to this one.

Folkyshaun, you're asking the wrong question. I doesn't matter what anybody else thinks of your music. Do you like it? Does it move you? If you're good with it, others will be as well.

Just for the record, I loved it. . .

If you were on the radio I would not change the station. If you were in a pub I'd turn away from the bar and put a dollar in your jar. The drone tuning and fingerpicking technique of the guitar accompaniment lends a solemnity to the tune, especially on the grim John Barleycorn arrangement.
