I think I know what you mean, I've faced the same issues from time to time. As I understand you're not a professional singer. Yes, a voice should become stronger over time as you train more. The muscles that control your voice will indeed get a bit stronger but to be honest I don't think singing should be compared to weightlifting for example. It's more ...

I have the same issue. A friend of mine gave me a tip which helped me. Try to sing from deeper down your throat. It is hard to explain, but basically, by doing so, you will stress your upper part of the throat less.

This has been a problem for me as well. I started taking vocal lessons to correct a "slow wave" (vocal chords vibrating at different rates due to thyroid surgery). Most of what everyone is saying is dead on in terms of not tensing up the neck which restricts airflow and does not help your cause. The one thing that I will add is that my teacher has me ...

One practical thing you can do is to see if you can improve the situation by experimenting with your diet. Specifically during the hours before you sing, but also in general. The throat and sinuses can react differently based on what you are eating, and what your blood sugar is like and so on. For example, if you use a lot of caffeine, you might find that ...

It's not too late at all! The obvious answer to this question is to practice. A great way to practice singing is to sing along with songs that you love. 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 ...

You might want to investigate learning to use a vocoder. That is a classic vocal effect. Then there is the talk box.

Vocalist should have 17 notes in the range of their chest voice 13 are needed to make a clean octave, that leaves 4 half steps. You do need to accommodate them. However you also should be able to move up to an additional whole step beyond what they're asking to stay in sane scales for everyone else (i.e. C,F,Bb,Eb,Ab,G).

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. ...

I had the same confusion but i later learn that its all about being original. Sing you voice with certainty and expect good of you . Listen to you self as as you break the air during your practice. Finaly believe in you today so that you tomorrow will be great.

Yes, there are correlations. Passagios tend to fall on certain notes for certain vocal types, and tessitura is a function of vocal type. 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. ...
