I can't sing!!!

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by fleabass89, Dec 10, 2001.


  1. Not singing while playing, but singing in general. Especially when I sing high, I sound horrible. I can go pretty low, but either way my voice sounds like crap. Does anyone have excersises/suggestions to help? I don't like singing when anyone is home though so it might take a while to do the excersises...:oops:

    So it goes. Falsettos are where it's at in rock music. We altos are just back-up these days.

    Just singing will just help you strengthen your vocal cords while still making all the mistakes, IME. Do you have a choir or local vocal group where you could participate? These structured situations will help teach you voice control, not "sliding" notes (like country/western music), and most importantly, BREATHING correctly.

    A person with a naturally good singing voice still doesn't have it down until they learn how to control what they have.

    You may not dig the music so much, but the discipline is valuable. Otherwise, it's just riding around in your car, singing along to the radio and sounding miserable, (probably).
