Hey guys! Well, to sum things up: I am in a band and I play lead guitar. Now, all of a sudden, I play lead guitar and lead vox. So, skipping the "It's so hard to do both!" (Which it is ) I've noticed that my voice is very nasally. When I listen to my recordings, I sound like a young child with a head cold. Any tips or advice would be awesome!

Embrace it. Some vocalists really make it work. Look at Ozzy, Zakk Wylde, and Mastodon's Brent Hinds.

Those are all terrible examples, as none of them can sing worth a shit.

You want a good nasally voice, look no further than Neil Young.

Just cause they can't ding well doesn't meen their voice doesn't suit the music and still sound good.

Nasal singing is the result of poor placement. Either:
a) aiming the voice in the throat with the throat not open enough.
b) aiming the voice too far forward, or even *at* the nose.

Try this:

Purposefully create a nasal sound with your voice. What did you change in order to achieve that? Answer = one of those two things above.

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

Some people are also paranoid and think they have a nasally voice when in fact they don't. It's actually fairly common.

To the OP: I would record a sample, and get the opinions of OTHERS. Hell, even post a sample here, I'd love to hear what you think sounds like a kid with a head cold :P
