Hey guys, i wanted to post this in the general instruction section, but since this doesn't apply to bass, i didn't. Anyways, a little background information. Before i got into playing bass, i used to rap. i would would rap over other well known instrumentals and writing a rap would be pretty easy. Have a point to make and make it rhyme (well that's what i was going for anyways). That being said, today i tried something different, instead of rapping, i wanted to try singing over an instrumental. However, this turned out badly, i found out that it was nothing like rapping where the tones of the lines didn't vary at much (if at all). For other forms of music, other than rap, the style is so different. R&B & rock, the lines of the song just seem different. The length & the range, all that good stuff. It's a complete mystery to me. I'm really interested and would like to compose & sing songs, so do you think i should get a vocal coach(singing lessons, if thats the same thing?)? What else would help me write songs? Question 2: Do you think the majority of vocalists, genre disregarded, have had a vocal coach? It's something i never thought about before and i'd like to know what other people think.
