My vocal cover of Only Happy When It Rains. There are more nuances in this song than I used to give it credit for, but I did my best. Feedback is welcome. (Unless the feedback is to get a backdrop; I'm already working on that.)

My vocal cover of A Tale That Wasn't Right by Helloween. Feedback is welcome -- I'm always trying to get better. This is the first cover I've mixed without having an instrumental track. I EQ'd the crap out of it to make my vocals dominate the original. All my timing errors are still super obvious. Oh well.

My vocal cover of Defying Gravity. With green makeup on. And some video effects. And my camera's auto-focus being slightly grumpy. But my hat stayed on. :D The room didn't have special lighting; it was post-production effect I used to make it look more interesting. I did have green makeup on, though. Feedback is welcome. I think I did well, but there are a lot of things I think I could do better on. I wonder if they are the same things other people think I could do better on. The backing track is made by Songs of the Stage: https://thesongsofthestage.bandcamp.com/

My vocal cover of The Sword Art Online intro Crossing Field, originally performed by LiSA. I did this as a contest entry. The vocal performance is... okay, not that good. My original mix was godawful. This project was a learning experience, precisely because I did so badly on the first try. I wanted to try again to see what I could improve. This is the same performance and recording as in my "Bad Mix" video. Better mixing does not fix the flaws, but it still sounds better than the original! My bad mix is here: https://youtu.be/VV-uoOz7eaQ

My vocal cover of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica. I welcome feedback of any kind -- I am always trying to get better. I got to practice my low notes with this one. I also discovered that the original vocal track has more subtleties than I had noticed before.

My vocal cover of The Sword Art Online intro Crossing Field, originally performed by LiSA. I did this as a contest entry. I was NOT pleased with this result. My actual vocal performance was... okay. But I left all the recording and mixing until the last day, and I discovered that I had no idea what I was doing. The mixing is really bad; I could not get the vocal track to sit right with the instrumental track at all, and it pretty much highlights all the bad qualities in the vocals. There is some compression on them, not done very well, and there is no EQ. The recording itself is haunted by an annoying room echo. On the bright side, I think I learned more from this project than I would have if I had done it right. My remix is here: https://youtu.be/XcjK3dx9w2k
