Laughing To Keep From Crying > Singing

In this third lesson we will be working on singing the tune. Pay special attention to the rhythm of the song because that is the rhythm that you will be singing to. When you sing, make sure you lower the volume of your guitar playing so that you will not be straining your vocal while you play. You can practice singing along with only the bass line to get you acclimated.

This is very good Jay. The guitar playing is at a good and steady tempo and your singing is at a good volume. Really sounding good here.
