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)) 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 2:53 pm #185897 Pablo De MiguelParticipant I think that your voice sounds too low but the melody sounds good to me 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 2:57 pm #185898 Ids SchiereParticipant Too low in pitch or too low in volume? 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 3:22 pm #185899 Pablo De MiguelParticipant volume 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 3:23 pm #185900 Ids SchiereParticipant Thank you! I have some trouble with having volume and maintaining pitch so any tips there would really be appreciated! 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 5:51 pm #185902 Pablo De MiguelParticipant I don´t know how to sing so i can´t give you any tips, sorry 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 7:43 pm #185903 Rowan MorrisParticipant 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. 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 11:16 pm #185904 Cleowell john CasalmerParticipant Yep that’s good 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 11:27 pm #185906 Ids SchiereParticipant Thank you Rowan! I’ll try that! Thank you Cleowell! 0 likes May 20, 2019 at 11:37 pm #185908 Firsty LastyParticipant 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. 0 likes May 21, 2019 at 5:36 pm #185929 Aileé Guerra AréizagaParticipant 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! 🙂 0 likes May 21, 2019 at 7:36 pm #185932 Ids SchiereParticipant Thank you Ailee, I’ll look up that book!

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. 0 likes June 8, 2019 at 12:59 am #186334 Ed SeithParticipant 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! 0 likes Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 31 total) 1 2 3 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
