hey guys. couldn't find a relevant thread to post this in, so i had to make a new one. sorry if there is one that i missed...
anyway, i've been singing alot latlely and singing my heart out. i've never sang before and just started trying to learn like last week.
I swear i can feel the muscles in my throat getting tighter, stronger maybe. should i give my voice a break, or keep going and keep letting it get stronger? i can really feel it getting stronger and stronger every time i finish a song, but i don't wanna cause any voice problems. please give your best advice.
thanks.

dont sing your heart out to excess. youll strain your vocal chords.
and theres a singing forum somewhere around here.

Singing/Vocals Forum

You'll probably get much better advice there, most pitmonkeys probably have crackly adolescent voices anyway.

If experiencing any pain: Let your voice take a rest.

If not:

1. Write songs
2. Make women fall in love with your voice
3. Spend money on drugs and alcohol
3. Overdose on heroin
4. Try to come back with a raspy, liquor-worn voicebox.

Varg/J Mascis/GG Allin are all the same person.

There are two types of people in this world: people who like Bolt Thrower, and people who suck.

Start doing brutal death metal growls till your throat gets quite sore. After that no clean vocals can hurt you. You could even do opera.

You're meant to sing with your diaphragm.. not your throat

Oh, you wouldn't want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch

Are you sure it's getting stronger? The way I understand it, the throat is for turning air from the diaphragm into an actual note, you shouldn't be pushing from it or feeling much sensation in it at all. Your chest and stomach should feel stronger, and your head and face should be vibrating, the throat should just be relaxed.

EDIT: If it's getting tighter, you're probably straining. That's not a matter of giving it a rest, that means you should find a different technique to do entirely.

There's a bunch of videos you should watch the shit out of. They've just helped my attempt at singing hugely.

Idk man, I've been using my throat for singing for a long time now, and my voice doesn't stop developing (it gets sore sometimes but thats nothing) for the better. It depends on the style of singing you practice.
