Whats the lowest note you can sing?

  1. Whats the lowest note you guys can sing before it starts to sound like crap. I can get down to the d below the bass clef, equivalent of open d string, before it sounds bad and is hardly a note. I played a show with a guy once, who knew a guy, who could sing the g BELOW the bass clef, as in three ledger lines down, and make it sound pretty, I think thats pretty impressive.
     
  2. On a typical day, I can get down to about a C (third fret, a string) and have it sound "good." At least, as good as anything else I sing, which isn't very good:( .

    The lowest I've ever hit? G, third fret on the E string. It was after a three week break from choir, during which I had zero singing.

    That terrific, awe-inspiring, contest -winning, girl-impressing:D ability was sadly gone the next day.

    On a side note, my girlfriend who has never had ANY singing experience is good all the way down to about a A or Bflat, bottom of the bass clef.:eek: That was a lot deeper than any of the second altos in my choir and a couple of the tenors!

    Our kids are gonna have some big voices.

    Of course. I also sing a mean Z# on the Decresending scales.

    Right, one of my favorite modulations is off a Z#b7 add salt, move it up a pi step to B easily amused.

    Great resolve
