My range is virtually nothing. Tried to but it was hopeless, even my guitar teacher said that it was better for humanity if I would quit singing

After brief experimenting last night, mine is from two A's below middle C, to one octave above middle C. I should really take singing lessons some time...

I get from about an A3 to F#5 and if I'm pushing it I could get as low as an E2 to as high as a A6 but to get that A6 I usually have to take a run at it

I got really interested in this so warmed up and downloaded the Sing and See program mentioned in this thread.
Whilst singing along to a few songs I knew I got from a weak D3 to a quite forced sounding C5#, this is only using my chest voice I believe, as with falsetto I managed to reach E6 (I am female by the way, so not a lot of bass)
Just wondering if that's a pretty decent range? Hoping I can eventually manage to hit C3, and boost that C5# up a little.

You're a beginner, so if you continue with practice you'll see good results.

My true range is open E string to F# in the high E string. Not including falsetto or head voice. I don't know if people are doing it wrong but I find hard to believe some of these comments, some claim to sing 17 fret on high E chest voice? lol, could b possible but wow if you're a guy.

I think those people are doing it wrong.

Basically anywhere around two octaves is standard. If you have one octave, you're probably just untrained, and if you have well over three octaves, you're probably doing something wrong. If you have two octaves and a fifth even, that's pretty commendable, provided they're all strong/usable.

Male here.

I don't know anything about notes or theory, but I can sing most female pop without transposing it down any. I need to falsetto at times so I don't have to belt though. A lot of male pop even gets too low for me to sing without singing up higher (ie: The Fray).

If you can find what notes on your guitar you can hit, we can help you find out what notes those are and where your range lies.

Male here, and, IIRC, I have just a little bit over two octaves... E below the Bass staff, all the way to first space F#. I do have a little trouble reaching the tips of my range, but they're all there and usable.

After not singing in ages I've gone back to working on my range and all that. Now my range is HEAPS GOOD! =D

I can literally belt out a high C (C5) at the start of the day, and on the very best days if I warm up a lot I can go all the way up to an Eb above high C, though I can't really sustain anything above the C# even on the best of days.
Low notes I can go down to a low A (A2) before it gets uncomfortable but if I really force it in a breathy voice I can reach a low F#. I tend to harmonize the melody up a fifth if I ever have to sing below a low B/C (C2) though, I always sound breathy or forced deep voice strained if I go lower than that.

Does that sound like a tenor range? if I'm numbering this right that should be A2-C#5 in a "comfortable" range, but to me that's anything that doesn't hurt my voice at all if I keep hitting those notes.

You'll have to look at your range again. Typically we are talking about the vocal range not including falsetto or whistle registers. This will direct you towards whether you are a tenor/baritone, and the actual range you have. So figure out where your falsetto kicks in.

nah what I meant is none of that is in falsetto, I don't think anyone would call it head voice either except maybe some classical teachers

it's all a belted chest/heavy mix voice even up to that Eb, I know what my falsetto is like and if this was falsetto I would be able to go much higher. I know I can get up to at least an A5 with a light head/falsetto voice but that doesn't sound good, what I'm talking about is just my natural voice being pulled up higher until I strain really bad around the D and just can't push any higher after the Eb.

So you claim you have a 3 and a half octave range? Post some clips.

I've gotten a much more realistic assessment on my range, no falsetto :P

E2-A4.

I've hit a low C before, but it was really low quality, and anything about the A is just obvious straining.

I can comfortably go from a D2 to around a G4. I can push it down to about a C2 but it's probably too quiet to use, and if you count fry I can push it down to an A or something. I can push my voice to an A4 but that's my absolute limit and have to just yell really loud to get it, something I don't really like to do much. As for falsetto I can go up to about an A5, but I don't really use falsetto at all.
