Just over four days ago I had a comfortable chest range of D2-F#4 but over the last two to three days it's been "reduced" down to E2-E4. I can still inch down to D2 (while sounding a bit vocal-fry-ish, which I never did) and up to F#4 but it's kind of a struggle to do so whereas before I could easily get there. Any insight as to why this is happening to me and whether or not it is permanent? I'm 17 by the way

  • Did you catch an illness over the last few days? – Dekkadeci Mar 7 at 15:22
  • Yes, what else has happened in the last few days? So many things can affect range: sleep, illness, hydration level, overuse, etc., but generally all of those things are temporary. If you take a day off and make sure you rest and get well-hydrated, it should come back. – Todd Wilcox Mar 7 at 15:25
  • Nope, I've been perfectly healthy and decently hydrated. Haven't been singing that much nor overusing my voice, just messing around with some bass lines or humming along to songs mostly – Nick Stvp Mar 7 at 15:40

    At 17 you haven't yet fully established your vocal range - It might still change tomorrow. – Tetsujin Mar 7 at 18:03
  • Just about the same thing happened to me... – Xilpex Mar 9 at 3:46
