BTW did u have the proper lyrics, i thought i heard some wrong lines/words here & there?

Jo said...

Hey Maddy, thanks for pointitng it out. I have removed the broadband version for now, I will check it when I get back home.

About the lyrics, I got it from a lyrics website. Could you please let me know which lines I sang wrong? Thanks man.

jo,heard the song.. heard from the dial-up.. its good... u sang very good.. the guitar is also very good..

hi jo,
i listened again, couple of words here and there like shimmering & benz (some lyrics even had that as bends) and so on, no real line mistakes as such. when i first heard it, i was unsure of the colitas word myself and that raised the question. i thought it was colas all the time!!my mistake, sorry. i found out that the word in the song has some history even!

did u check the broadband version? wonder why it was always playing fast for me!!

Jo said...

>> Nicey: Thanks much Nicey!

>> Maddy: I removed the broadband version because many others also been complaining the same. :-) And yeah, the song has a lot of interesting stories behind. :-)

Very well sung Jo, the only problem is the accent- after all it is not our language and just as they cannot perfect our diction of our language, we cannot....
Anup has done a great job.
Kudos to you two!

Jo said...

Thank you sir!

Hi Jo,
Excellent job... I (with my friends)did an attempt on this and failed miserably. Anup was excellent and I don't know what was
Roshni's role in this... but cheers to all

Jo said...

Hey Taffy, thanks much. Rosh helped us to send the files from one to the other and she also helped to mix the track because I had tried to do it and failed here. Finally Anup got it mixed right. Its a long story. :-)

Hi,

I am a music enthusiast who just now started an audio blog and also have posted one of my first compositions. It would be of great help if you can listen to the track and let me know your opinion. Thanks in advance.

Hi Jo,

Lot more to work on the pronounciation and speed. I suggest u sing "Road To Hell" It'll be suitable for ur voice.

Best of luck.

Jo said...

Thanks for the comments Jana. and yeah, I know there is a lot to do about the pronounciation part while rendering western songs.

Hi Jerrin

Thanks for your honest comments man. I shall work out on the accent when I sing English songs.
