    Hey all. I wanted to ask some people who are in bands a question. See, I'm in this band, Illusion 37, were a umm....I guess pop rock? band. Anyways, we had a real singer, but he umm....lets just say he got frisky with the drummers girl friend. So, it was him or the drummer. We had a meeting on this with our manager and the bass player, and we decided to give the singer the boot. Well, we tried to find a new singer, but nobody clicked with us. So I got stuck on vocals. We had 2 weeks studio time booked....and I got stuck on vocals about 3 weeks before we went in. So here I am, trying to figure out how to sing while still concentrating on my guitar playing. Well, we finished the album, and I hate my singing. Everyone else likes it...but I think it sucks donkey balls. If any of you have ever sang on record..did you like your voice?

    P.S. Sorry for making this a long story.

    It sucks hearing your own voice on tape the first few times - but don't let that discourage you. For me ,playing and singing at the same time live is the killer, depending on how complex the guitar part is.
    If you're getting compliments from other people, I would take that as a good sign, bro.

    I think it's normal to not like the way your own voice sounds on a recording.

    Gargle often so long as everyone loves it you just keep doing what your doing..... work on what you think is the problem. Maybe invest in a voice teacher. [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Yeah, even though you may not think it sounds like you, try and be objective and just listen to it as a voice, not necessarily your voice. Then you'll be able to hear it in the whole context of the song and not just you singing! Hang in there. I think it says alot about what kind of bandmate you are when you can pick up the duty and forge ahead despite a minor setback! Well done! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
