does anyone have any singing advice?

i'm just learning and i don't think im doing so great... after im done singing i always have a sore throat, i thought maybe this could be because im not use to straining my throat muscles but then i realized i could be damaging them also. blahhh. lessons are expensive so im kinda learning from friends and google.

 

maybe one of you has a knack for singing on here?

any help or tips?

:)

 After a session of singing you can try drinking some hot tea with a bit of tabasco sauce in it. It will help to soothe your throat. Also try singing from your diaphragm. It's located just under your ribcage.

You're upsetting me....on several levels.

PhOeNiX_OaSiS pretty much said what I was going to. I have never used tabasco , but I do suggest Hot tea I use lemon in my tea , also when you are practice get a large bottle of water NOT COLD with lemon . If you drink water that is cold it will restrict you cause your throat to hurt ! Also try plugging you nose while singing and unplugging it if your voice sounds different your not singing from your diaphragm .

Also find something that is in your range rock stars usually strain there voice all so don't use rock star type songs ! Try something you can sing one time threw without going WOW that note was a dousey !  With practice you will get better and better !

I have a vocal couch MP3 set I can send you if you want it !

This is excellent advice, but remember that it doesn't apply to you if you've had your adenoids removed.

I actually just learned that fairly recently.  I'd been having sinus issues, the Dr asked if I've had tonsils and adenoids removed.  I said I know the tonsils are out, no idea about the adenoids.  So, he had me pinch my nose and talk.  I sounded like an old fashioned operator.  That means I still have adenoids.  If they're out, your voice stays almost exactly the same.  *shrug*  You could win bets at bars with it, I suppose, other than that, it's just more trivia cluttering up my head.

Here's my singing tip:

If it doesn't come natural, your probably not supposed to do it.

I disagree... I've heard singers completely suck... I couldn't fathom how they got an album let alone airtime... then a few years later, BAM!... they're back from wherever they disappeared to and they have a rockin voice... the only explanation would be lessons and practice...

And if they're naturally talented and THEN get lessons? Then... then I stalk all of their music.

Granted, lessons don't work for all... not everyone who is 'taught' to sing, sings well... so... yeah.

If your throat is hurting then you aren't singing from your diaphram, and you could possibly damage your throat if you continue to do it often.

Start by relaxing your stomach COMPLETELY.  I know all of us tend to "tuck our  tummies" a bit, but you gotta just let it go.  Think about your belly as a barrel and you need to fill it with air.  Just concentrate on learning to breath from you diaphram for a bit, because it IS antiintuative to want to do this.

The other thing is that you want to keep the soft palate of the roof of your mouth raised.  This allows the sound to come out better.  Practice just consciously raising the palate.  It will probably trigger you to yawn, but that's perfectly normal.

It's a little more difficult to give you other advice, like understanding tone and range, but that is secondary to learning to breath in the beginning.

Hope this helped a bit. :)
