    So I like to sing sometimes and I seem to kinda struggle with creating volume. I’m also kinda insecure about my singing capabilities so some feedback would be really appreciated.

    Yes I’m singing a John Mayer song again. His voice sits in my vocal range nicely and he doesn’t do a lot of fancy stuff(Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton or SRV may come later(YouTube tends to block Beatles in a heartbeat))

    I think that your voice sounds too low but the melody sounds good to me

    Too low in pitch or too low in volume?

    Hi, Ids! I think you have a very nice voice! One way to improve your volume, is practice with your diaphragm. I did a practice to strengthen mine by laying on the floor, placing a book on my stomach, and carefully breathing deeply in and out. You kind of have to push using your diaphragm to increase your volume. (That might sound a bit weird, but I don’t know how else to describe it.) If you need any help or maybe a video with a few tips, I’d be happy to try to help you out. I’ve been singing since about five years old and I’m classically trained through chorus classes.

    I should learn more about singing so that I can talk about singing without everything I say being worthless lol. Because I’ve worked in a deafening environment with earplugs for almost a decade it’s easy for me to be loud, but I have no idea how to explain what my body does to be loud.

    I bet the reason you don’t have the vocal power you want is technique, because your voice sounds like the voice of someone singing softly. You can’t sing louder by singing softly louder. Just doing what you’re doing more forcefully would probably never work, and could hurt you.

    I recommend a book called “The Rock-N-Roll Singer’s Survival Manual” by Mark Baxter.
    It has a very detailed explanation of how to breathe and how use your diaphragm correctly with some exercises, plus how to keep your voice healthy. It is very easy to understand and an easy quick read (cause I know you don’t have a lot of free time available.
    I would start there.

    Also the instructional video “The Zen of Screaming” by Melissa Cross has a very detailed explanation of how to breathe and use the diaphragm correctly and lots of good exercises, plus other good advice. Any singer can benefit from this video, not just extreme vocalists.

    This two options are enough to keep you busy for a while, but if you want any other resources let me know! 🙂

    I love your sound but as others said volume b you just need to project a bit more. 🙂

    So I just tried singing again but did not film it(yet). I found out about two things:
    1. If I focus on creating volume(and actually creating it) I tend to sing offkey which is kinda bad
    2. For whatever reason I can’t sing/speak louder enough to be heard over my acoustic guitar but I can hear myself rather clearly when I sing while playing electric guitar.

    For #2, I’d be surprised if you’re not self-regulating your volume in your head to match guitar so that it sounds good to you. That’s where a singer’s ego can come in handy – LOL. That comes with practice, confidence, and technique.

    Melissa Cross has taught proper screaming to a LOT of big-name screamers who praise her as a life-saver. The most recent I can think of is Jesse Leach from Killswitch Engage.

    Ailee said a lot of shit better than I could – I want to try to sing, but I chicken out. Good for you, Mr. Brave!
