Not familiar with this one, Rolandson, so no idea how it sounds compared to the original. I see it is v1, so expected it to be less fluid than some of your others after some more work

I played it a lot and this should be the final version. Without the singing it would sound better. I had  problems with a few words. That got me distracted i guess

I should have done it the same way like half the world away from oasis. I listened to the song more often as this one

Good playing there, and I'd say your vocals are improving. Just need to give the vocals a bit more 'gusto' for that kind of song, as you sound a bit restrained and overly conscious of your singing.

Hi,
Good to see you posting apart from your progress thread!
I struggle with singing but I also realized I goofed around on the guitar probably 97 times more percentage time wise as I do vocals. So I have started to try and sing more and learn more about it. One thing that can really help is to fined a tone generator of some sorts. You can surely use your guitar too. Point is you play a tone (note) and you match it with your voice and hold it for a tad. Then change the pitch and do it again. If you have a way to record this then you can listen back and analyze how you did. When I was in 7th grade  I hated being there, but the music teacher had us do this for voice training. These days some 40 years plus later I wish I had taken in the that free education!

At any rate keep it up and go for it.

Fine job, Rolandson.

Lots more heart and soul put into this vocal, better dynamics and feeling as a result.

And the guitar sounded smoother, more relaxed.

This is up there with, if not, your best that I've heard.

Well done !!
