Actually thinking about experimenting with karaoke singing after all…

I was never a big karaoke fan ’cause I felt more comfortable singing with real instruments but I’ve started experimenting with karaoke backing tracks in youtube. Singing along with them. If you want a good way to master cover songs with your vocals sing the karaoke version. I would like to do karaoke more ’cause they can improve your singing too. I don’t own a karaoke machine of any kind. I just use the karaoke backing tracks in youtube.

Maybe I’ll pick some songs for me sing on video. Turn my speakers on for the computer, turn my microphone on and sing away.

Today I just started practicing singing along to Louis Prima’s “Just a Gigolo/I Ain’t Go Nobody” which is one of my favorite tunes of all time. Maybe I’ll videotape myself singing that one with the backing track playing in the background. Karaoke singing is also great practice for singing in a band with too.

I won’t get a karaoke machine ’cause all they do is improve your voice in a fake kind of way, kind of like auto-tune which explains why I’m not a big fan of karaoke but I’ll sing along with the backing tracks though. Karaoke machine’s just make your voice sound too good. You wanna sing with a real microphone which is what I prefer more.
