Well I used to be in a choir and we sang for lots of people but, then again, that's a different style of singing for the most part and I'd be on my own with this.

Two friends who heard me sing at this party said he liked my voice which I was very surprised (and embarrassed) by to be honest because I was being very quiet. I'm very, very timid when it comes down to my voice around people, I guess I'm just afraid of trying my best and then having people say "That's shit".

It might be a bit less stressful for you if your first experience singing/playing in front of people is with a band. That way, you're not alone up there, you know? Being a solo artist takes nerves of steel. Even then, from what I hear, lots of artists are scared shit before every show! But if you never try, you'll probably regret it.

"Stockholm Syndrome" Drum Cover, 16 year old

Hey everyone, I covered "Stockholm Syndrome" on drums a while back and was wondering if anyone wanted to check it out . I'm not sure if this the right section to post the thread but it's about muse so I guess it's the right section that's available

Anyway here's my cover of Stockholm, I hope you enjoy it!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOvaoIFgPM0

My brother and I recorded all the instruments and I tried to get it as accurate as possible to the legendary Muse with a little personal improv here and there. Thanks for your support . Let Muse be discovered even more all around the world!

If its just you up there you should oh most definitely not do No Suprises or Muscle Museum. No Suprises is good because of the 3 guitars + Xylophone + Occasional strings working together and MM has some empty guitar spots that even if you managed to fill wouldn't sound great.
But you should go for it. You never know, you might win.

The only problem with getting a band together is that everyone in my year who can play an instrument is already in a band

Yeah I must admit those two had me thinking. No Surprises I definitely can't do, there's way too many layers that are important. Muscle Museum...I don't know to be honest, that's one of the songs I'm most comfortable with vocally but I agree with you about the empty spots. I could swap it for Nature_1, Megalomania (not sure if the audience would enjoy that ) or Cave?

Hello Forum,

My first post , Thought I would share a cover I've made some time ago too. I'm kinda proud of it if I say so myself. I've used a mp3 track with no guitar so all you hear is me, and put in some variations I made up.

Supermassive Black Hole.
http://youtu.be/7d2Uq0VMQaY

Tips are of course welcome

(and yea I look a bit weird at the camera sometimes, It was my first cover and I was checking if the guitar was in view xD.

Hope you like it.

Are those bands already planning on being in the talent contest? If not, will one or two of them learn a song and play it with you just for that one contest? You never know -- they may decide that you're a better musician than whoever they're currently playing with. That's how Chris ended up with Muse.

Nah, I don't like any of them to be honest I'm a very different person to them.

I've just tried Muscle Museum with just me and the guitar and it doesn't sound too bad. The only bit I'm really concerned about is the intro. I'm not sure how many songs I'm supposed/allowed to do but I think I've decided on: Muscle Museum, Karma Police and Sing For Absolution and if there's space/I have to do one more then I'll throw in Plug In Baby.

Overall, I think I've persuaded myself into doing this. When the competition comes round I'll let you guys know how I do and I may end up posting covers in the future Thanks for the suggestions and advice everyone

Just curious -- how are you planning on playing MM? Are you going to play the chord progression during the verses? There's very little guitar in the verses on the studio version. Also, are you planning on playing the "riff" in Plug In Baby? Because if your very nervous, that could be difficult to do. Believe it or not, Undisclosed Desires is a beautiful song when done acoustically.

I plan on filling the silence with the little bits Matt used to play live and by tinkering around with the parts that are already there to make them seem more significant and less boring. The Plug In Baby riff isn't an issue really, I've been playing it for years, I'm just as likely to mess up on the others as Plug In Baby I considered Undisclosed Desires to be honest but the songs I've chosen are the songs I'm most comfortable with vocally, UD isn't one I'm confident with.

Thanks by the way
