In Dino - Life in a Metro (Reworked)

Lyrics & Chords

Song: In Dino dil mera
Film: Life in a Metro
Director: Pritam
Singer: Soham

I had earlier posted my initial attempt at this song. I was so happy that many of you took time to listen to it, and give me feedback to work upon – mostly which were to increase scale to suit my comfort, and to sing with more energy and open-throatily. I also had already identified some pitching errors.

I have tried to work on them, and after nearly 5 attempts, am uploading a newer version. Since I do not have the re-upload option, I had to delete the earlier one and upload the new one. However, the older version can be found here .

I hope my newer attempt is more satisfactory than the previous one. Once again, all comments and feedback are most gladly welcome.

Please listen with headphones on…

Thanks!
Rekha

Great choice of song…As you said it is an extremely wonderful song extremely well sung by the original singer.
That was a very good attempt from you. While your voice goes quite well with this type of song, somehow I missed the throw it needed. Did you reduce the pitch? Could be because of that the impact of the song was slightly less and not as much as it should be. Also felt slight carnatic touch in the sangatis.
Overall a nice one. Take the pointers mentioned in the right spirit.

Rekha ….good attempt ….though the ktrack pitch is not reduced …you sang this in a lower scale….which took away the energy the song really deserves….but overall very good attempt …sing full throat …stay away from the mic for these types of songs…waiting for your re-upload …

Rekha, completely second Sree above……The lower scale sounded good at some places like “Hai tujhe bhi ijaazat” parts….Other than the scale, u did very well……u can do much much better with this voice………looks to me that u have classical expertise, isn’t it?

Great choice of a song… Nice work,but that zest/energy seems to be low. I am not sure but that could be because of the low scale.
This one’s been in my list of ‘to be sung’ songs for ages. Wonder when ll get to it :).

Hi Rekha,
Very nice song pick, and very good attempt by you. ‘Hai Tujhe bhi ijazat’ was well-done. Agree with some of the earlier observations on throw and energy.
Great going with your style of rendition… also would love to listen to your update with higher scale.

Rekha,

Listening to you for the first time. Awesome song to pick….

You have good base tones, and I enjoyed listening to a different take of this song. Thought it mildly pitchy ( kuch rang tho baroon /kuch tho karoon for example in the antara) but got better as you went along :-)

Kudos on the effort!!

Cheers,

Much better and bolder version…I liked your dedication and efforts put in for improvement. The throw was very nice . However the pitching could have been better. At many places you were off pitch. Like for example ‘Kwab SAja’ was not right at most places. Also many ‘harkats’ needed more clarity…The humming after the first two lines of both the antaras could have been better…

Overall a better creation than the earlier one…

Thank you Meera, NVK sir, for listening to the song and for your feedback…:-)
I realise the pitching issues, but I am having a small issue there. I have and use only the laptop headphones/mic, and most of the times, I can hardly hear my own voice while singing…
Especially in this song, I found it tough to focus on the harkats and the energy, and at the same time trying to follow my own voice. Would better recording equipment help?

Hoping that with time, I can get back into more of singing on regular basis, and then get some good recording equipment…

Much better this time. You already know my comments abt the recording equipment. You surely should look at upgrading to a recording mic.

Hello Rekha….

Very very good selection of song…. Really nice to hear a female cover…. But I would have liked it more in a higher pitch… I tend to agree with Meera on the pitchyness throughout…. Really like your effort to improve….very few has it…. even few old ones are reluctant about it…. Very good attitude…. Let nothing come in the way of improvement…. :) Great…. Keep it up…. Thumbs Up from meeeee :D

Shampak.

Rekha very nicely rendered and nice voice. With mixing techniques the output of your song can be much better. I also don’t know the mixing techniques but you can learn the same from NVK Sir or Harshan Ji.

starting was bit dull but you slowly picked the energy….pitch wise fine but little more punch in the voice needed….good improvement in singing but mixing wise still lot of scope for improvement
