Luckily I have both

Well my vocals aren't exactlly amazing but I have lessons so they'll improve.

You could always just take voice lessons and have the best of both worlds.

Voice lessons are for people with naturally good voices to fine tune their pitch. And yes, i'm not a very good guitarist so I probably would.

Yeah why not. I'd trade guitar and become a bassist/vocalist.
#11

Well honestly, I loove guitar, but my dream is to be able to sing and be an awesome front man, but I've taken singing classes, I'm not going to be a singer, so I practice twice as hard to learn to play good guitar

I play bass...so I'd definitely trade my guitar skills for vocals...though I've been told my voice is not bad.

Loopholes FTW =)


bass is guitar. its just a BASS GUITAR.

Yepp. I'd trade away my guitar skills, get awesome singing skills, then just re-learn guitar.

The perfect crime.

Opposite for me, I could pitch stuff fine seeing as I play guitar and piano (like properly, with musical theory and stuff) I just sounded too plain as opposed to having any real character in my voice. it's really helping me. Huzzah for singing lessons

There're more chances of succeeding as a singer than as a guitarist. But no singing will ever give me as much pleasure as playing guitar does.

quick! giantraven! catch! (throws flame repellent (sp?)) you're gonna need that.

Pfft, no Zeppelin fanboy can beat me down



And bah to the having to give up Bass, it takes mere seconds to relearn that anyway
#25
why are people making grey area

no. I wouldn't trade guitar skills for vocal skills. my life revolves around the guitar solo and pulling it off.

edit: you can't jam with plain vocals either. how is singing more fun than shredding?

Id rather lose a leg than a finger, because a leg isn't important to guitaristry!

Singing is good n everything but to be honest, i'd hate the job of singer, they get all the focus, so if everyone thinks the bands rubbish then the singer gets it in the neck ya know. they have a far harder job in my opinion, and i dont envy them for it. fair play to those who do tho

I'm not great at guitar, and I love singing and might rather be a vocalist, so yeah I would.

#33
I would trade my EXISTING skill, and get the gutteral and clean vox of Mikael Åkerfeldt.

Then when I get the vox, I relearn guitar.

I disagree with the idea that vocal lessons are just for people with really nice voices

I think everyone with the right techniques can find their voice and work with it to sound atleast decent. Everyone has a voice it's just I don't think everyone knows how to use it. Not everyone is going to be a great singer, but just because someone isn't on American Idol doesnt mean they shouldn't take lessons.

and I'de say yeah, play and sing. However I'm most comfortable singing, while playing guitar, I can play guitar without singing, but I don't like singing without playing so go figure
#38
wow, no. I'd rather be playing the music than just singing.
I'm so damn jealous of myself.
#39
I would because it's probably easier to re-learn guitar than to learn to sing. Singing is more of a born with it/not born with it type thing. Although you can lean how to sing.
