Well, I started to record Good Riddance by Green day, me playing and singing (strictly for practice, I hate green day with a passion), and I dont sound anywhere near as good as I thought I did. Help please? I cant get a couch since im already taking guitar lessons and money is tight.
My gear so far:

-Cort KX5 (pearl white)
-Crybaby Wah
-Danelectro Cool Cat
-Fender Twin Reverb 65' Reissue
-Hardwire TL2

I don't know quite what you can so, but there's a singing forum now so I'd check that out.
Please excuse my godawful username. I was thirteen.

It's better to stand when you're practicing anyways.

I have learned that by simply not opening my mouth my singing voice improves ad infinity.
I really don't think a couch will help anyways.

you have to have a good posture which is hard on a couch so i would either stand or sit upright in a chair

Videogames actually give you a good sense of pitch. As long as the programmers have pitch themselves and can do the charts right (in other words, Guitar Hero won't work)

If you can get your ear right and worried about just your tone, then you just need to practice along to songs to find what suits you

First thing I would do is realize that you can get better volume and longer lines in from using your diaphragm instead of your lungs to breathe (that's the part right under your ribs at the top of your belly). Next thing is to just practice on using that air to get comfortable with gradually raising the volume. Try not to stretch for the notes. That'll only do more damage. Oh.....and eat apples before you sing at a show or something. Trust me, it helps.
Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?
