This week's video is He Sleeps in a Grove by Amberian Dawn available for sale on the Rock Band Network, authored by the awesome people over at Rock Gamer Studios.
This is actually the first time I have ever FCed (full cleared) the song in expert. I had issues where I was stuck on a certain point and once I figured that out I managed to mess up on a part I usually make.
The song is difficult because it is high for a long period of time with little to no breathing room between phrases. In order for me to hold a high note I need a good amount of oxygen and I just wasn't getting must space to breathe. After a bit of practice (or should I say 10+ 99% runs) I got a little better at it although my voice is still a bit weak.
I feel like it has to be said that I am not a real singer, I have no training in classical singing (it's something I'm interested in though)
so don't expect this to sound super great or anything. I'm honestly just happy I FCed the song. I know I didn't have to try to sing it in the original octave to get 100%, but I felt that was the most interest in the song and in all of Amberian Dawn's songs coming to Rock Band. Maybe with practice I would be better at this song.
This song is probably not a good representation of how I sing either, this cover I did of Amberian Dawn- Passing Bells will probably give you a better idea of where I stand vocally.
So here is this week's video:
