Quick-fix singing tips?
posted by threeants to media & arts (15 answers total) 19 users marked this as a favorite
My fledgeling little for-fun band got a gig doing some covers, and I'm singing main vocal on a few songs. I'm told I generally have a decent voice, but I'd be interested to hear some basic tips. This is folk/roots music, so I'm not necessarily looking to sound "polished" per se, just, I don't know...good. Two particular points of question that I have are 1) how to make a cover sound at least minimally distinctive (especially in absence of any sort of genre change-up or significantly different arrangements) and 2) how to make volume changes sound good and natural, as one thing I've noticed in listening to self-recordings is that I don't have great volume control.
But any tips will be of interest! I have never been taught anything technical or explicit about singing, so go nuts. Thanks.
