If you take a listen. It is metal so you may not like it.

Sorry if the audio crackles a bit on your headphones. I don't know why that happened.

is version without the crackle.

But yea I play guitar. I am always trying to improve on guitar. It sucks though because I don't have a teacher or any way to really learn guitar. I am my own teacher really. If you want to play an instrument Stockingsan do it now. Start now. The younger the better.

I know you said you had to quit because of your small hands. You should find a way around that.


wow, this is actually really good. a long while ago i was really into metal, so comparing this to the stuff i used to like, it's really good! keep it up, you're doing great, don't doubt yourself :)

and you're right, i should really start now while i still can, thank you for the advice




Hmm someone who was into metal before but isn't now? Strange :p

Really though. You don't want to regret starting late or starting at all. I wish I started when I was like 8 years old lol.

I consider a singing voice an instrument, i don't care if it's not technically
Doing vocal warm ups every day/other day really help expand your range, i've been doing choir since elementary school and my voice has really grown and gotten more professional due to the practices and such, so i'm sure if you look into it enough you'll be able to sing whatever you like!


Yeah I don't like doing warm ups... I consider it boring and somewhat silly...

But you're right, I have noticed that my range had expand tremendously over the past 3 years where I was practicing singing a lot.

it was one of those things i thought i liked because all my friends did in middle school, but then i started getting really into more alternative stuff and kind of forgot about metal for a while

and yeah i wish i started young, i had a keyboard when i was really little but i never practiced so i had my mom sell it, i wish i didn't though because then i'd know how to get around the small hands issue

I played the violin for a little while, I was in my school orchestra and even won 'Most Talented Musican' at some point. That was about 3-4 years ago though. I quit because it became stressing trying to fit practice in with all of my schoolwork. Haven't touched my violin since; I probably suck at playing it now. OTL
Uhh..nowadays I try to learn Anime OST by playing it on a keyboard app I found for my tablet. Does that count? xD

after a while it does seem kind of silly to keep doing them and it definitley gets boring but it's too late for me to stop now
i'm dead set on training myself to sing perfect bel canto

and yeah, as they say, practice makes perfect. even warming up for like 10 minutes helps a ton

That is cool. It is cool to be yourself too. I respect all music except the typical rap. About your small hands though. I don't know what I'd do.
I mean you can't even stretch your fingers? If you can make it work but it hurts you will get used to it. Just don't break your finger trying :p
Good luck if you ever try again though!

Then he has an avatar that will give someone an epileptic seizure. Well that instrument is against the rules as it doesn't play music.

Unless you use it to play drums...

Then.. rofl
