Okay, yesterday me and my keyboard player got together to write a few songs and he shows me some lyrics and starts singing them. The problem is he's not a good singer at all. He does the whole singing thing but in a talking voice and very loudly so it's very obnoxious. He knows he's not a good singer but insists on "singing" anyway. What can I do to help him not sing like this?

say "hey, stop singing"

Tell him he really shouldn't sing because he doesn't have a good singing voice.

Tell him to e-mail me with an audio clip of his singing, so I will laugh at him and demoralize him to a point where he'll never try to do it that horrible way again. Then I will slowly build him into a vocal machine.

its all about how you speak to him
if you want it to be most effective, with the best sympethetic way you can say it
just come to him with a smile.. and say
"Dude shut the **** up, my brain is melting.."

you sing instead. the easiest way, i think. ask for the lyrics, and if his voice is such a big problem, you take over the vocals. or you could shame him into silence like the others said...

if he knows he is a bad singer just say, "ok you wanna sing, but you are a bad singer... are you a dumbass? let me sing" or whoever else can sing. keep him writing lyrics though if hes any good.

I'm writing the lyrics so he just sings along. But I want to help him develop his vocals, but he's already enrolled in this $300 choir camp thing. So much for that.
