So one of my really good friends is a great singer in a pitch sense. However, he has a really bad tone in my opinion. It kind of sounds like Chewbacca singing, without the growlyness. Just the nasally sound, like he's holding back his voice and sending it through his nose.

I have two questions: 1) How do I go about telling him this politely? and 2) What advice can I give him to help?

Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks guys!

just a thought, maybe if he hears his voice recorded he'll notice the difference in what he thinks he sounds like and what he actually sounds like. have a jam type thing and record it "just for kicks".

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

Actually, I'm dead serious. I'm speaking directly of a friend. I thought he was just messing around the first time I heard it, but alas, no.

I sure hope not!

Best bet is probably the recording thing.
