    What she is demoing in these two videos show off her potential. I Put A Spell IS her real voice at 10 years old. Interesting you don't like it but that's ok, you're cool.
    I'd Rather Go Blind was her Billie Holiday voice. I am with you in that I believe she doesn't need the gimmick. She's now 13 and she has let go of Holiday and let that go the way of her natural voice.


    A couple more natural voice Angelina songs, look at the difficult material she is covering, these are mature adult songs, she should be celebrated for singing and putting her carreer into these great R&B and Blues songs. Give her a 1,000 points for doing her part to bring it back into popularity.

    Unchained Melody, very hard


    Wecome To My World, incredible low range for a 13 yr old, or adult

    Eva Cassidy died young before her carreer really started.
    She's not quite like the others here but she has a beautiful texture. She also plays the guitar.

    That sounds more natural for sure. There's still something missing for me though....she doesn't really grab my ear. Not sure why and that's okay. I mean, there are people in this world who actually enjoy Geddy Lee's singing so I guess there's room for all of us...lol.

    I'm surprised no one has posted this one. If you aren't familiar with Davina and the Vagabonds, here's a good intro to their talent, though their original stuff is fantastic too.

    It's just different when an older person has pain and the need to express it, and when young musicians do. Angelina Jordan's singing doesn't sound "self-motivated," or whatever.

    Did it piss anyone else off when Chris Stapleton ripped this song off, changed the lyrics and sold it as his own? (TN whiskey)

    Agreed.

    When people are getting sued over a basic, common chord structure or the slightest sliver of a melody, how does this not get sued for all its worth and more?

    In the key of A, a D is more of a sus4 note than a chord. I think it adds depth and color to the progression, in addition to the tension inherent with any sus note. And the E chord, well I think it sounds harmonically thin with just two chords, but I won’t let it bother me.

    A steel guitar engagment.
    I'm not aware that he claimed that he wrote it. Didn't he credit Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove like the previous half dozen artists that recorded it?

    Except he never did any of that. It’s a cover of a song written by David Allen Coe

    I agree, I don't use a regular D chord. I play it as a D/F#. Just an F#-A-D triad on dgb strings.

    I like the Jimi Hendrix hammer on D and F# strings B and D at that point.

    I'm not sure that I get what you're saying. Can you explain how playing the IV chord "is more of a sus4 note than a chord." I can't make any sense out of that.

    And I'm also not sure what you mean by "And the E chord, well I think it sounds harmonically thin with just two chords ". What two chords? Sorry, I'm not getting what you're saying.

    I'm not arguing against you or anyone playing the song in any way that you want...that's fine...but I'd like to understand what you're saying for the sake of discussion...:)

    Dillon and Hargrove, as @MickM said above. All Stapleton did to it, besides adding his powerful and unique voice, was use the ii chord in place of both the IV and the V as used in the original. Seems like that trick could work in all kinds of songs.

    ??? Don't agree, I see R&B in excellent hands with the young generation.

    And this thing about having to live the blues in order to play the blues is also not at all how I feel about it. If you got it you got it.

    I think he's talking about this classic riff,

    A7

    Sorry.... I'm not sure which of my two questions your TAB is referring to? It doesn't seem to answer either of them....
