I'm a guy new to singing (I'm covering song tracks from tv shows /cartoons etc just for fun).
But when I'm singing a girl's song or even a guy's song who hit louder & a little higher notes my voice always messes up and I'm forcing my self to try to sing the words. * My voice isn't deep by the way, I just can't sing high at all XD*
Songs with not that far of a vocal range & just basic singing with a nice tune are perfectly fine & easy for me such as "Emotionless - Good charlotte"
However a song with higher range such as "Yura Yura - hearts grow"
I'd find myself exerting a lot of effort just to meet the notes. Even if I lower the notes to my range, I can't sing loud enough at all to make the voice sound powerful. It just sounds like I'm dieing XD.
1) I should lower notes/octave to meet my voice when singing songs right?
2) How can I sing more "powerful", even in general with a note I'm comfortable with I can't sing powerfully. My voice dies out and it can't go that loud :/.
Also some off topic questions. Do youtube vocal warm ups help? Such as "Singing lessons from EricArceneaux"
Thanks for helping! ( I would've added the urls, but I need 10 posts to do that XD)
