I always thought I sounded bad when I sing because I can't reach high notes. I figured I knew what the song is supposed to sound like, so I'm probably screechy because I'm not getting the correct high notes.
Yesterday, I found this app where you sing into it and it shows what notes you're singing in, so I found out my range was between G3-A4. When I asked my friend who I consider a good singer (just in sounds only, I have no idea about technique), the highest she got to was B4. We could sing the same song, and I'd sound like a mangled cat while she'd sound harmonious. She's had no choir experience and attributes her voice to her mom being a good singer. We are both 19 year old females and played instruments when we were little but never took choir.
I know this is very vague since none of you guys have heard us sing, but I was wondering if you guys had any possible answers or speculations on what could possibly be the difference between our voices?
