Harmless
Coldplay Lyrics


If you call and call
Your self esteem is low
And I heard you'd called
Is there no calling?
And away I go
Any way you go
I was o­n your tail
As clear as crystal

But it was harmless
It couldn't hurt you
Oh you were helpless
I know you'll get through
I know, I

Chemicals are cold
See you sit down o­n
A chemical you cause
Is like a crystal
So I heard you say
I got to get away
I'm o­n a second trail
As clear as crystal

But I was harmless
It couldn't hurt you
Oh you were helpless
I know you'll get through

I think the beauty of the unreleased songs is the fact that they're unreleased. The fact that less people know about them, that you can't buy them, and that being able to hear them is a really special thing.

Nacho Pagani

Couldn't say it better, cheers for unreleased songs

+Tessa Kelly: ''I think the beauty of the unreleased songs is the fact that they're unreleased.'' EXACTLY! greetings from Perú.

Yeah I know what you mean. It is like you have discovered a diamond.

Chris's voice is beyond anything anyone has ever heard. its so emotional, he can hit high notes like falsetto without straining his voice like other singers. every word chris sings is pure gold.

@Robert Reviews I have zero experience of helping other people which is to say I am not a teacher. So I can't tell you how much time it would take for you to get "good". But I would say it all depends on your current skill set, your potential, your willingness to put in the work and your definition of "good". But I have heard people making exceptional improvement in their singing in a matter of 1-2 years and with consistent practice you should be able to notice improvement in a matter of month or two. If you see a huge gap between how you currently sound v/s how you'd like yourself to sound, may be find a teacher on YouTube who is good and not very famous, meaning you'll be able to get in touch with them via Skype lessons or something. There are teachers like "Marnell Sample" and "singwise" who are really good and not very famous so I think you can easily reach out to them and get feedback on your vocals and how you should proceed. I also like "Chris leipe" but he is kinda famous. He too teaches how to sing like a particular someone like Ken templin. If you don't plan to spend money then I would just recommend the DIY practice and experiment approach as we discussed earlier. Do the vocal exercises and practice everyday and you will start seeing improvement in a month. Good luck buddy!

@Akshit Any advice on how long you think it will take me to get good?

Akshit

@Robert Reviews Love the practice part. It will pay off. Definitely stick with recorder even if you don't like your voice through the recorder. Put phone close to your mouth while singing but not too close so as it is touching it but close enough. Use earphones to listen to it. I'm sure you will get better in a year. Enjoy the process. Good luck with everything man!

@Akshit That is actually exactly what I've been doing. Doing a few vocal exercises and then singing certain Coldplay, The Strokes songs for a few hours every day. My main problem is listening to my recordings. I just can't get past how bad they sound to me. It always brings me down so I feel like I should sing without them, but eventually I NEED to listen to them, but it's very hard for me. I use simply piano for learning simple scales etc., and Ken Tamplin for singing. I can sing very high though without strain, (something Ken taught right out of the gate).As far as guitar, I can play Ode to Joy and Cigarette Daydreams by Cage the Elephant, but not much else, although I have a full 20 disc guitar learning course that I am using. Thanks this was very helpful, It was exactly what I needed. I've been losing hope being home all the time during Coronavirus but I would hopefully like a career in music one day. I just got to practice. Thanks.

@Robert Reviews Firstly, I would just say that too much technicality ruins one's approach to music. That's true for singing as well as for learning to how compose or approach an instrument. That's not to say there isn't a place for signing & guitar teachers. I don't think i can recommend the exact balance (between learning technical stuff and practice/creative exploration) because it varies from individual to individual and their natural talent/potential to develop the craft, but they sure go hand in hand. I'd say practice singing and you will start to borrow elements from all the singers you admire automatically when you cover them. Record yourself everyday and listen to it. It sets up a feedback loop. Then do singing exercises as recommended by the teacher you follow on YouTube or elsewhere but don't follow more than two teachers. That's true for learning an instrument as well. But choose those teachers carefully.
Also, i think the music and artists you love are the best teachers. But yes, it's definitely good to understand some music basics before you start exploring the instrument but you don't need to learn all the scales and all the chords to even begin making songs let alone cover existing songs or make sense of them. Most of music is written with basic chords. I recommend using the songs you love to figure out what's going on once you get basic theory. Basic theory should include stuff like notes, scales, keys and how they relate to each other and understanding how most pop songs (4 chord songs) are written using basic chords in a particular key. Once you understand that, you should follow songs from Coldplay and The strokes for example which "borrow" chords outside from the key or use "modes". You should look into modal interchange and modes once you understand basic stuff. It all depends what you wanna accomplish through an instrument. For singing, I would say practice vocal exercises and start singing stuff you wanna sing. Make sure it's not too high or anything unless you can already sing high without damaging or putting strain on your vocal chords. for example, I also won't recommend anyone try to sing like Kurt Cobain in the beginning because they can potentially damage their vocal chords. Start with simple songs and put importance on singing them well and finding your own voice. Once you have your own voice or know how to borrow elements from singers you admire while still remaining essentially "You", you are good to go and further explore technical stuff and repeat the process of integrating what you learn there. Needless to say, one should focus on learning what they like and not learn just about anything that don't really serve your purpose. Some amazing singers are very limited in what they can do but they do it extremely well and that's something to note. Same is true for an instrument. Once you understand basic stuff and you have enjoyed and explored what you can do from that for some time, only then you should acquire more technical knowledge and learn how to integrate that and put It to creative use and repeat the process. I know It seems like i am rambling here lol but forgive me, I did not plan an answer and just kept writing. This is my approach and that's not to say other approaches can't work. In the end, It's a very individualistic process as it should be. Final thing I would say is let what you love about music be the guiding light always. Art and artists you admire are the greatest teachers and no amount of technical knowledge can make you fulfilled or teach you how to be creative if you don't let what you love about music be your ultimate teacher. Only in attempt to trying to sound like artists we admire we find our own voice and it's not a static thing either. Its dynamic. But it's important that you feel it is your voice and not a complete forced thing. Hope it was somewhat helpful. Cheers!
