This week's video is more Amberian Dawn! This time, Shallow Waters and as you can guess from the title it isn't an easy one.
Hardest problem I had was managing to sing that fast and high without that many chances to get a breath. Really really hard on that level. If you're doing the song in a lower octave though, it's a piece of cake. I played it in a lower octave the day it came out because I was a bit congested and I just didn't have it in me to try to sing it in a higher octave physically.
I did this song over and OVER and OVER again trying to make my struggle to breathe sound less obvious and it did indeed become easier the more I did it (yes, yes, I know practicing helps!) but still it's a killer.
Or it was for me anyway.
So yeah you will see me trying to stand very straight to maximize my lung capacity and inhaling really obviously, you might even hear it. I tried my best to not take a noisy breath, but hey.. I'm still human and I still have to breathe.
I really like this song, and I enjoy Amberian Dawn's guitar solos, but it's really boring to sit (or stand in my case) there and look/feel awkward in front of the camera when doing vocals... so I get a bit silly. Don't take it to mean though that I'm bored. I just feel weird.
Anyway here is the video.
