    Sounds very good! Our band covers that one on almost every gig. We (okay *I*) play it a little more as hard-rock, but I like your version. It's good, clean and the vocals are great!

    Not bad at all :) Not my favourite ZZ tune to begin with, but I liked the guitar (both tone and playing) and the singing was quite decent. Actually, if you'd stop "hating being the vocalist" and just boldly pour some more of your personality into the singing, I don't see any reason why you'd need another singer.

    Thanks for the kind reviews guys. I just cringe when I hear my own voice. I think it doesn't sound ,,,tough enough/rough??!? I can't seem to get the emotion through. I ended up with most of the vocal work, because I am the only guy that can sing whilst playing! Shoulda played dumb!

    In my opinion, the "rough voice" is one of the hardest things to do convincingly unless that's more or less your natural singing voice. Personally, I've given up on trying to sound rough and I just go with what comes more naturally. That being said, I think your efforts are fairly well balanced :)

    However, if you're desperate then you can always try spending an evening drinking, smoking and shouting with some buddies and then top it off by running around outside in your underwear for an hour or two (or better yet, run around town naked and get thrown into jail to sober up). Then, first thing in the morning (ok, early afternoon) you put down a vocal track. That should do the trick ;)
