    Can I sing?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone who knew what they were talking about could maybe listen to this recording to tell me whether or not I can sing properly. I love singing and i've been doing it for a while but quite a few people have been telling me that I sound really bad. I was planning on quitting but I think it's best if I asked some people on here first
    Please note that I also have a form of larhyngitis (i think that's how you spell it) but my doctor claims that the only possible cause is anxiety (aka he's given up). I've had this for a year but I think it's gotten a little better. I still struggle to sing sometimes and it's always a little painful afterwards.

    Hi there,
    It doesn't do you any favours being so raw and loud relative to the backing track but yes...You can sing.

    Your technique is very full-on and, I admit, it sounds a bit like hard work, but there's no doubt you have the ear for pitch and the potential.

    With what you said about pain and trouble singing, my advice would be to book a few lessons with a good vocal coach.
    People misunderstand and think that means they can't sing but, for the most part, a vocal coach is going to teach you how to sing with health and stamina and mind.
    With only a few focussed lessons, you can pickup tips and techniques that will make a huge difference to the longterm health of your vocal chords and, hopefully, alleviate any discomfort you feel.

    There's an old saying about singing - If it hurts, you're doing it wrong.
    Obviously that works on the assumption that there's no other underlying cause but, yeah, take it seriously.

    Yeah you can sing. Good advice above on instruction.

    Melody is fine but you're not really feeling the song, rhythmically. The vocal needs to sit better in the mix.
