I have been playing the guitar and some other instruments for quite some years but I have never really sang before. I am trying to train my voice for something fun next year at the end of the summer.
With me I have people that have sang as soon as they were able to talk. They can easily tell me what my problems are but they are no pros and I need some help to fix those.
When I try to sing I have several problems :
- My voice get stuck in my throat. Meaning that I am singing but the sound is muffled/distorted by my "closed" throat.
- If I force myself to try to open my throat I am not singing anymore but talking.
- I can go pretty high as I can go pretty low but I cannot find my proper range / tone.
Do you have some advice and/or exercise (warm-up or otherwise) to help me fix those issue. I know it takes practice and that's not a problem, but as long as I can't actually sing I won't be able to try to sing right.
