Tenor, baritone, or bass?....

 

not sure to be honest Fred..iv'e been singing for 10 years now on the local circuit,

I do covers of other peoples songs ....you could say it's gloryfied karaoke as I sing to backing tracks but there is a big call for it here in the uk....middle of the road type music....it pays for the luxuries like food and rent......

 

I will post some pics a soon as I take some decent ones....a couple of the pieces ive made are buffalo horn so quite reflective, found it more difficult to photograph them......made a light box recently but not mastered the art just yet.....I saw a link on the forum to a site regarding photography so will check that out ... bye for now... Russ
