I am a 19-year-old guy and I can't sing middle C or below without straining.
I can sing from E2 and up to B2 comfortably. But I don't think I am a true bass because my voice isn't really deep or can hit G1.
I have taken three lessons now, and even with lessons, I don't think there is any hope. I started Perfect by Hedley with my teacher and I can't even sing the first note, A3, without really straining. And Perfect isn't a very high song for guys, just hanging around the middle C, except for G4, B4, and C5, which I can sing easily with head voice.
I tried to sing an octave lower, which is much easier, but then there is no reason to practice if all I can do is sing an octave lower.
Will I ever come to see the light? Or should I just accept the reality and move on?
