Maybe if you breath from your diaphragm (area under rib cage) when you're singing it will help.

You could use:

Cold water makes your vocal chords tighten because of the temperature, which causes like... the tissue to come closer together.. Think of ice and water... ice is solid because of the cold, but becomes freeflowing when it turns into water... I think that's one of the best comparisons I can think of... but it's not really 'bad' for you persay... it just doesn't help your voice very much if you drink a lot of cold water before singing.

And warm water/tea isn't good either because, like you said, it makes your throat dry. So the best thing to drink before singing is to just drink room temperature water, or warm-ish...not too warm, otherwise it'll start having the dry effect, but room temperature is best.

Here's something I found from a vocal coach:

"Drink room temperature water as often as you can to keep your voice organ hydrated. If you only have cold or hot water available, swish it around in your mouth for a moment. This action will keep your voice organ from being startled or stressed by different temperatures."

I hope that helps a little.. I'm not a professional so if you want more information, I suggest you go on an informative site.

Oh~ alright! I read somewhere that drinking tea might

help, but really, it doesn't lol. Thanks for the info xD It

makes sense to me now~ :D

This is a Goldwave question...

When I record, I listen to the music while I sing.

My Goldwave never used to do this but...it records the song playing...I don't know how to explain this clearly.

Like, it only records the song [extra loud] and not my voice.

How can I fix this?

Anyone?

I used an old mic i found lying around the house.. sounds so nice XD lol.

Anyways I was wondering...

I heard my voice recorded and I sound like I'm out of breath each time I start a verse..

Is it because I'm not drinking water ??

I don't think it has much to do with water but more with your breath control. Do you feel out of breath when you start a new verse? Practice would probably be the best thing to do to improve this so that it doesn't happen. Good luck. (:

goto control properties & click on the volume tab.

in your case, Stereo Mix has been checked.

Uncheck it & check Microphone.

it should work then.

um, ur probably singing using different resonances. theres chest voice, head voice, throat voice, falsetto bla bla. you usually sing in head voice for higher notes after u reach ur "break", chest voice is like ur normal speaking voice and is the easiest voice to sing in. you'lll usually sing with this voice..throat voice im not sure...and falsetto is either ur head voice or the voice between ur head voice and ur chest voice. if ur not sure heres how to check : sing a high note and feel ur head, if its vibrating then ur singing in head voice. feel ur chest when singing lower notes, if its vibrating then ur singing in chest voice. im not a pro singer or anything, but this is what ive been told. hope it helps :)

is anyone willing to provide a tutorial for audacity? nothing too complicated just the basics \ :)

the thing most troubling is that the music is always louder than my voice and then ill put the mic really near but then its too loud

Play around with this thing.. Where the red arrow is.. That should change the volume of the background while the mic volume stays the same.. or if you want to change the volume of the mic you do the same thing with the other one. (with the pic of the mic.)

Lol im not too sure if it will work because I myself never used audacity before..

PLEASE HELP!

can i make my singing voice go higher/stronger with practice?

are people born with good singing voices, like, if you suck at singing, you will never be good, or is it like, although you're not very good at singing right now, with practice, you can become great?

just wondering...

and my other question is, is it just me or do you have to sing louder for your voice to go up? how loud do singers usually sing when they hit the high notes? do they all belt out the notes? can they hit the high notes without making their voices louder? i have to really try and belt to get the high notes (although my voice usually cracks) lol

i also find that i sound better if i sing along to a singer's voice and when i sing without any music, i dont have confidence to sing. what does that say about me?

ok, one last set of questions..how do you know which key is the right key for you? and how do you know which voice to sing in (out of the difference voices each person has, throat, head, whatever)..i realize that when i sing, i sound better in one voice verses another, but i cant find that voice all the time when i sing bc i dont know where that voice is coming from. also, do singers have bad/off days where their voice just doesnt sound good and isn't as strong/cant hit the high notes as their normal/good days?

I think that just says that you're not used to hearing yourself singing without music/another person's voice. Don't be afraid to listen to your voice alone. It'll help you find the depths in your voice--your qualities as well as whatever may need some tweaking.

hey I was just wondering if you suggest any good mikes for me.

Because my really sucks...

like which ones are good? The price... I don't really care

I just need something with good quality

and do you guys plug your mikes to the computer?

Or elsewhere?

I was thinking of a mike plugging to the computer

You know the little red hole in the back.

Where should I buy the mike you refer to?
