Why does my singing sound OK when I'm playing the guitar, or doing scales, even though I don't have perfect pitch? Because you store (memorize) and recall (sing) distances (relative pitch), not addresses (absolute/perfect pitch). The information you use is the amount of change in each note in relation to the last one, not the actual frequencies of every ...

Good question! The answer requires at least a little music theory. Vocal melodies (or any melodies, for that matter) are likely to use the notes within accompanying chords to some extent. However, melodies are unlikely to only use notes within the accompanying harmony (chords). In fact, melodies would be rather dull if they did! Depending upon the style or ...

While you do sing many notes a chord is composed of at least 3 notes and forms the harmony to support the melody(the notes you sing). The chord being played will not only support the melody, but it will help give the song a tonal center. Any melody can have harmonic tones(chord tones) or non-harmonic tones(non-chord tones). A harmonic tone is a note in the ...

And yes, tessitura often extends a little bit above the second passagio. According to the page below, the following notes roughly correspond to these classical vocal types... but there is individual variation. ...

You're right, this is pretty subjective. Loads of great songs use low voices. I don't think higher voices are necessarily "more pleasant" to listen to. But, you may be right that pop and rock songs use high voices a lot; this is likely to be effective because it raises the melody line away from the pitch of the other instruments, making it easier to hear. ...

During my initial foray into the wonderful world of singing, I used to extensively practice my singing while driving. If you have access to an instrument this will greatly aid your vocal abilities since ...

Since you are trying to do something original, nobody can give you a definitive answer. I'm going to assume the question means you really don't want to develop your untreated voice, and you don't mind sounding like a robot, having unclear lyrics etc. I would recommend buying or borrowing a budget guitar multi-FX pedal - or a computer application like ...

Try out a number of mics and amps. Forget about effects by and large. You are sort of fantasizing about turning your voice into something more like an instrument. How popular are purely instrumental bands without vocals? The voice is quite a multidimensional sound production device and you tend to have decades of practice at least with some aspects of ...
