lemon tea is quite good and avoid fizzy drinks

There is a section on vocal training etc in the Musicians Talk section. You might get a better response there.

Singing strains you vocal chords more than usual. Like any other muscle, it aches the first few times, and like muscles, the more you work out, the less it will ache.

you must be doing something wrong, go see a singing tutor for a quick lesson to see if they can point you in the right direction

because youre tensing your throat muscles so much

if you learn to relax during singing, that might help?

btw, i dont know much about singing... lol

You're probably singing pitches near the top of your range, and you're straining your vocal chords to to reach them.

You're probably above the portion of your range called the passagio (passage in english) so think about using falsetto. You're going to want to strengthen your falsetto anyways if you want to sing...

My tip would be that when your singing, breath, sounds stupid but u maybe singing with little air in your lungs and trying to sing with your throat rather than your lungs, if you get me

AND vocal warms up are VITAL

That's what I used to do... I wasn't taught how to breathe properly, ran out of air too quickly, and ended up singing from my throat too much.

Sounds like a singing lesson or two would do a lot of good, TS.

Falsetto is ur 'false' voice, think justin hawkins, he loves his falsetto but not tht ridiculously high. Singing scales is good to strenghten your voice
I trust you play guitar so just run through a few major scales , one octave up and down, then change go up a semitone and sing that scale...ie sing C major then C# major and try not to drop down when it gets too high, obv play the scale as ur singin it, or sing the scale as u play it

if its hurting your throat you need to warm up properly and it also means your doing it wrong. most of the sound you produce should come from your diaphragm

warm up properly. Start with humming.
Drink green tea and honey, stuff like that.
Don't push when you're singing, use your natural resonance
