Sup guys.

So a lot of people say you have to have a born talent to sing. i have an ok voice, nothing i want to share with people though. But i want to sing whilst i play guitar as its much better for me and for others to get the whole package. But can you learn to tune your voice?

thanks in advance

You can never improve your range too much and if you have a bass voice will never be able to sing like a tenor. But you can improve the quality of your voice to make it a bit more bareable.
#4
Yes you can learn. Seems to be the hardest instrument for me.

Ok, I'm not really trying.
#6
You can definately learn to get better, but it's one of those things that having natural talent will get you much further than with even a lot of practice.
Yea that's right, I want something to explode

I've been deaf, now I want noise

I have an awful, muddy voice and have been working on my voice for like a year. I still have an awful voice, but can hit notes a little better.

You can't change your tone, but you can learn to carry a tune. There are a lot of famous singers who don't have very good voices.

Utterly wrong. It's like anything, practice makes you better at it. You just gotta learn proper technique.

Anyone can learn to sing well.

But i am very much in the bass range. I only have a couple octaves of range.

Yes. You will probably never sing an aria if you're terrible at singing before you get vocal training, but you can at least get from terrible to 'passable' with coaching.
#13
I have a really fit for clubs voice when I sing. I have taught myself how, but I don't think my voice is something special. You need ear training to learn to sing better too, and my ears suck.
#14
For the most part yes. There might be certain "types" of singers that not everyone can be. I have a bass/baritone voice so if I tried to sing like someone like Jon Anderson, I'd do terribly.
#15
You can train your voice to hit notes and potentially expand your range through correct technique but you will never be able to change your tone, or how your singing voice sounds.

Where the **** are you people getting this from? Tone will be drastically improved with correct technique and it's definitely not something you're stuck with from birth.

No, you can't.

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

No, you can't learn to play guitar either. You're either born with a guitar in the womb or you just can't play it because your fingers fall off after 3 weeks.

Not true.

I would never get caught singing. Me singing is the vocal equivalent of this.
#22
I used to be a terrible singer, now I'm an okay'ish singer. You just gotta practice. Some tutoring to get you on the right path helps a lot.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.

Training, bro. Anyone has potential to be decent if their technique is good and they practice.

Anyone can train and become decent with enough practice.

Not everyone can be a good singer.
#27
I could hold a tune, but i don't really know much about singing technique aside from singing from the chest to give more power, but really, i am not confident enough to sing, and so i kind of go half way and don't put enough power into being able to sustain a note.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
#28
Anyone can learn relative pitch and be able to hit notes, but there isn't much you can do to improve the 'quality' or range of your voice.

I don't know, I don't think talent is the only thing that decides how good someone is before getting lessons. I think it's also about whether you're lucky enough to stumble over the correct techniques without guidance. I know a guy who has a great bass voice, but sounded ridiculous before he got lessons because he'd somehow ended up making a yawn-like sound and aiming his voice right at the back of his throat.

That Red bloke is clearly making a weird sound with his mouth, that he thinks is singing. No-one's voice is naturally that bad.

Yeah. If I can then anyone can. Best way to learn is to attend a choir! You get tips and don't have to go through that nasty 'I sound awful' stage, because no one can really hear you! Obviously this can only teach you so far though!

Time on earth is like butterscotch; you really want more, even though it will probably just make you ill.

I used to have a bad voice but I started practising with Muse songs for shits and giggles and I've gotten a lot better and can actually hit notes. So I guess it's possible.
Also, singing with the radio when driving seems to help as well.

It's certainly a "born with" ability to a certain extent. You'll be able to hone your voice, and expeand range with practice, but you can't expect to sing like *insert famous singer here* if you don't have a basis in having a decent voice.
#35
The born with it shit isn't too true. Some kids are just around music a lot more and if they hear people singing, they will start to sing along too. Therefore, they start singing sometimes, as soon as they can talk, getting in a lot more practice making them a lot better at a younger age. You find any decent singer and they'll more or less definitely say they used to sing when they were really little.

I would love to be able to sing, but I have a very limited range at the moment. Of only like an octave and a half or something. I just don't have the confidence to sing in front of people yet and haven't got round to starting lessons because of it.
#38
Yes. And it's rather easy.

Whether you can create a voice intersting enough for others tolove however is talent/genetics I guess.

But to sing in key is terribly easy.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash
#39
No, but to not admit that they had a natural ability to sing is kinda....dumb. Some people just get head starts.

i think so but i have good pornogrind vocals. and i don't need a pitchshifter.
