Most folks can sing, after a fashion, but if you feel you can't, don't worry. Use your internal voice. You can listen to phrases, then try to copy them. Record your own - then you know what key they're in - and play them back to copy. As you do, you'll probably mentally map out what they will play like. This is more important. Chances are that with higher ...

Clever question, but - I'm afraid there isn't... It does always depend on different factors like the tonality etc. If your melody uses mainly the notes of the underlying chord progression you are likely to use also these chord notes. If your melody is more diatonic and using the whole scale you would rather end up with 3rds or 6ths forming the second ...

Feeling the song like you said in your post is very important. It brings out things that can make a performance. You will also have all the musical basics covered by just knowing how to play another instrument. Some very famous musicians who sing in a band, did it out of convenience and not preference. Trying to imitate someone else with a different voice ...

Your approach to learning a song is as good as any. I use a similar approach. Here's what I do a little different than what you described. I usually start by just listening to the song over and over before trying to sing along. You may do the same thing as well, but I have found that if I start trying to sing along before I have heard it enough to ...

If having a particular sound image is helping you, and you don't aspire to greater things, what you're doing is fine. However, if you want to consider a different approach, I'll describe one: In the beginning, you may listen to a recording of a piece or song you want to work on once, to form general impressions of the piece or song. Now work with the ...

This kind of singing is called scat singing.

It's one way to go, but then you'll end up as a clone to each singer of each song, because you'll be using their phrasing and intonation. Better to take a song as a song, and sing it your way. Imagine every cover version of a song being sung in exactly the same way. Pointless? Probably every singer started out imitating, but most will find themselves sooner ...

Singing "in parts" means that each voice (such as soprano, tenor, alto, and bass) has its own independent line to follow. The contents of that line will be written out, and will depend on the composer or arranger and the harmonic structure of the piece. These parts may form consonances or dissonances with one another, and they may move in parallel motion ...

if you do sing-training an hour everyday from now on, 10 years later, you would be shocked how good you had improved. this is a true story from me. And how much to improve for you has no limit at all. But everyone does have a different start point. Does that answer your question?

It's called either a "vamp" or a "coda"

The voice parts are designed to overlap but be distinct. You won't find a spot where everyone will be perfectly comfortable - the objective of warmups is to stretch everyone to expand every part's range. If you want to focus on particular keys, exercise the parts in pairs (bass/alto, tenor/soprano). Remember that the focus of warmups is not to sound pretty ...
