I read certain comments around YouTube on people’s covers of songs that never cease to annoy.
…when people think their opinion is the most important thing in the world on matters of music because they have studied it at some level at some point in their lives. EARTH TO FOOLS: I know of plenty of people who study music BECAUSE THEY SUCK AT IT and also, just because you know how to read sheet music doesn’t mean you are more in-tune with sound. You ain’t so special so shut it.
…is that some people think that by singing in a higher octave one can magically avoid going flat on notes… What the actual fuck? Earth to idiots. People have the most control over their voice in their strongest range. Therefore, if someone’s voice is more comfortable in a lower octave they are more likely to avoid bum notes in that range. FOOLS!
…when some people point out minor things like “you messed up the words in that line” or “you missed that note.” NO ONE CARES! I’m SOOOO sorry that I can’t afford to go book into a studio and have them master and smooth my audio for this amateur YouTube video. I’M SO SORRY FOR BEING A HUMAN WHO IS NOT PERFECT!
…and lastly, people who can not appreciate different kinds of voices. So often are there comments where people say “sing this higher (oh sure, because I want to sound more like every other poppy, guitar playing guy - this is what I do)” or “don’t use so much vibrato because they don’t do that in the original (this is a cover not a copy…)”
