    Vocal Performances

    I've been taking voice (and Ukulele) lessons, and so I've also been intensely watching and listening to singers on music tracks I have as well as YouTube videos. I don't watch tv per se but I do enjoy viewing the video auditions on the various shows that highlight musical "talent". "Talent" is an interesting word to use in this context because music in any form is work, and just about anyone can sing or play an instrument if they dedicate the time. Stage presence is a bit different though that's mostly dependant on confidence.

    I decided to see if anyone would like to discuss any of these videos or recordings.

    Spot, there might be quite a few videos in this thread, so would you prefer we link to them or post them?

    Re: Vocal Performances

    Stage presence has nothing to do with confidence. My youngest suffers terribly from anxiety and he can hold an audience in the palm of his hand.
    Some of the best performers in the world have said they throw up before going on stage. Or they make sure the lighting is just right so they can't see the audience

    The problem with ukes is that there is no bass.

    Why not just take guitar lessons?

    Well, the chords on a normally tuned uke will sound just like the chords on the top (high) strings of the guitar with standard tuning, though the key may be different.

    My prediction is that once you've learned the uke you will become interested in the guitar also.

    I love the Uke. It's quite in vogue to learn it . Most will not take up he Guitar because of bulk and multiple chords. I know many who have taken Uke lessons here. You only need to know little and sound like a maestro.
    It's a good intro to the guitar but most take it up later in life (maybe cause they missed the boat when younger to learn an instrument.?)

    Not only is this guy an accomplished Ukulele player, but he's a terrific vocalist, as was IZ.

    This is a Britan's Got Talent performance by Alice Fredenham. What I enjoy about Alice is how she interprets other's songs (I have her new cd). She's isn't necessarily among the best of vocalists but her interpretations and the way she expresses them is quite pleasing. Alice's body language during this performance shows her constructing each note so very carefully and for 2 minutes and 42 seconds, there was not a vocalist on the planet any better than Alice. Her interpretation of My Funny Valentine on that day was better than Frank Sinatra's or Ella Fitzgerald's ever was recorded, AFAIK. Enjoy!
