    For my entertainment, maybe try playing and singing with earplugs in? Fair warning, I don’t know what result this will have. Maybe it’ll be a disaster lol. Hey, I just had an idea. Maybe I should help contribute to this school by making a video about how to wear earplugs properly, ‘cuz it seems like very few people understand it.

    Hahaha earplugs in while singing seems like a horrible idea. I won’t be able to hear my guitar and singing so it’s just gonna be a mess.

    I think this one has better volume to guitar ratio than the last one. I’m definitely not M shadows but This is the only avenged song I think I can do somewhat decently

    My voice has been a bit weird this week. Like it has all the weird cracks and random off pitch things a teenage boy has when his voice is in transition. Yes it also happens when I talk. I’ve been trying to sing Heart Of Life by John Mayer anyway. Any tips and tricks and feedback would be really great(yes I know some parts are off key)

    @FirstyLasty that’s an interesting point you bring, cause ideally a singer should learn by the sensation in the body (resonance, placement, open throat, support, etc.) and not just by what they hear. In many live scenarios singers are unable to hear themselves and have to rely on “how it feels” when they are singing and what they have trained their bodies to do. So what you suggest could actually be a powerful practice exercise.

    Ids the voice cracks are caused by a lack of support. Right now your throat is doing all the work that your diaphragm should be doing, this will also help your volume. I’ll try to film a video to explain in more depth.

    By the way, I’m loving this thread and this idea. I’m gonna dust off the songs that I used to play and sing and embrace that more on the school cause we don’t have a lot of that. It ain’t always about shreddin’ lol!

    Ok, so what I know from the guitar players in my life is that sometimes it is difficult to sing while playing because of the focus. What I can tell you as a singer is that to get optimum volume, you have to fill those lungs which is pretty difficult while sitting. Try to maybe record your guitar playing and then practice singing the song with the recording of you playing for a bit and then start playing while singing, but stand. Also, until you get used to hearing your recorded voice, it will sound odd to you, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.😁

    So I tried again and I think it’s better than the previous one

    I’m sitting because I feel more comfortable like that and in this case it kinda worked I guess. To be honest the focus is not really the problem for me I wander off a lot when I play guitar so it’s kinda doable.

    Gotta have more confidence when you sing. If you don’t project your voice people won’t even hear you to give you advice!

    Honestly I think the parts I did hear where good

    Your voice still sounds like you’re trying to sing softly, as if you don’t want people to hear you. You’ll probably sound great once you learn the skill of projecting with power.

    Tbh John Mayer had this really mellow thing to his voice which I really like. I have no clue how to combine that with power because when I try to sing with more power it tends to become a bit more coarse and looses all the mellow soothing quality it has. So yes I’m singing softly but that has more to do with the fact that I like how it sounds. If there’s a way to have that soothing/mellow quality to my voice and create volume in all ears. Maybe I just have to get a microphone😅

    Honestly, that may be your solution. I’m not the best person to give advice on singing cause when I sing I sound like a dying cat being beaten with a cactus. But you do what fits you and you will do just fine.

    Singing quietly is more difficult than singing loud because it requires more breath control.
    It’s a trained skill that takes time to develop, so don’t get discouraged if it’s hard right now. I’m gonna film those videos soon, I’ll go through some basics and add some advice for singing mellow as well.

    Hi Ids! I’m so sorry, I’ve been super busy and haven’t had time to record a proper video.
    However, I don’t want to leave you hanging so I found this video from a vocal instructor.

    Breathing and support are the foundation of singing. On this video she explains how to breathe correctly and how to use the diaphragm. Practice this whenever you can and it should really help with your volume and control. Also, as she says towards the end, the abdominal motions are supposed to be gentle. This, plus remembering to always sing with a completely relaxed body will help with you achieving that tone that you are looking for. Practice getting rid of stress as you sing.
