lyrics needing a heavy guitar sound

what is it you're needing help with.........always happy to help if i can
if it's getting vocals down, i would say you might be best to try n get the chorus parts down first, i like the way you had the chorus on your first shot at it, then if you're up for the verses try them on a seperate track, this way you don't have to do a full performance in one take, you can record one chorus at a time (on the same track) and then the same with the verses......if that makes sense....i.e hit record for the first chorus, get that down and stop recording, move the track along to a bar or two before the next chorus, hit record get that one down, then do the same for the verses......
if you need me to post the newer ruff take minus my vocals i can do that

you're a better singer than you give yourself credit......i appreciate it's hard to listen to your own voice initially, i was, (and still am a bit) that way.....but if you sing, then by definition you are a singer just keep at it and you'll get more comfortable with hearing your voice, and it'll get better too
you've pretty much nailed the idea i had in mind, you're singin this one for sure i'll maybe do backin for you...

i think it's worth using this ruff backin track for practise just now, when we're happy with the practise take i'll redo the backin track add a bassline etc......
did you record using speakers for playback.....thought i heard a wee bit of audio bleed....the playback track being picked up by the mic.....if so it may be worth trying it with headphones on if possible....gives a cleaner recording...... although it may take some practise to get used to......i generally find headphones on with one side half over the ear let's me hear playback mic'd voice and my voice un mic'd.....not sure of the technical term lol......not sure if your set up allows you to hear what you're recording...i.e if you sing while recording can you hear what you sing through your headphones/speakers

i think you've got a good voice.......given some time and practise and you'll get more confident with it, i think with singin, from your own perspective, you just have to get past that initial cringe factor of hearing yourself, i'm sure most people have that initially, i certainly did, but i'm learning to just get over that self consciousness, and try to sing more confidently.......you will never hear your own voice as others do.....it's like if you have ever been caught on video camera and you hear yourself talk, you think is that how i sound? doesn't even sound like me, but everyone else just hears you as you always sound......

i wouldn't worry too much about getting the chorus to pop......if i add a backin vocal to the chorus that should help.....hopefully......also i'd say that "this is not the way it's supposed to be....etc" is kinda like a pre chorus and "i'm burning it burning it burning it down" is the peak??....maybe even double up your vocal on the chorus for a slight lift......in my mind this song really needs the multiple vocal to get the right effect......

Johnny ...........i kinda forgot about this one.....and a few others i'm sure lol.......this one needs reviving (? spelling) tho
it's got potential fo shizzle
i'll see if i get a chance/time to get the feel for it, and try and re record the music track........see if you get a vibe for your vocals
