Singing? - July 9th 2009, 04:01 PM

Hihiheyhi,

I have no idea if this is the right place for this.

So a while ago I considered myself a good singer, I had alot of compliments and my ex used to love listening to me sing while I was getting ready or cooking.

Then I stopped singing and I can't remember why but I just stopped...for about 6 months. Now I keep wanting to start singing again, but I don't sound the same at all.
Seems that I now suck and it's kinda heartbreaking because I love to sing, it's how I express myself.

Does anyone have any idea about some vocal tips? Anything I can maybe do to get my voice back into shape. I'm kinda hoping, preying and wishing that this has just happened because i'm out of practice and with a little tuning I can get back to the old singing me.

I've searched google and all I can find is people trying to get money outta ya. No.

Any help? =[

Rhia x

Your voice box is a muscle, you have to excercise it everday (by singing) to keep it in good shape. Try doing scales everyday, and it'll come back to you. Also, Amazing Grace hits every note, so it's a good song to practice singing. Just sing as much as possible and you'll get better.

I think the best way to get back what you had is to just start singing again. Always make sure you warm up before hand, whether that means doing a few scales or just humming lightly. After you've done that for 10 minutes or so then I'd say go ahead and try singing any song you like. I agree with love2laugh that Amazing Grace is a good song to try. It has such a wide range that it will help you reach lower and higher notes. Hope this helps

If you have a piano or keyboard try pressing random keys (in your range) and matching it with your voice,and then move on to scales.If you don't have a keyboard/piano you can find free online ones,just search it on google.

I'm an absolutely terrible singer, but I do some acting. You have to warm up your voice for acting, so I'm sure it would help to warm up for singing, or at least practice. Like someone else said, you need to exercise the muscles

Practice scales and easy songs.
Always warm up properly first, the voice is easily strained and damaged.

Your voice quality will mature and flourish with practice.

Re: Singing? - July 15th 2009, 03:47 PM

i warm up by humming a couple of songs. i'm doing it now (Creep, Radiohead)
then i sing to something easy, something hard, something moderate. i construct singing and jamming playlists to that mantra.
when you get out of practise, what i find is my range shrinks. i can no longer sing all of Fences (Paramore). i need to get back into practise.
so yeah. practise.

Have a free hug.


Why be stingy? Take another.


It's gonna be okay.
