1. I don’t sing OR I am not a good singer OR I THINK I can’t sing as good as I wish
- You should sing and record if you think you are not a very good singer. Improvement happens with a combination of being serious about singing, doing some vocal training, and recording. Recording and listening to my own voice is probably what helps improving our vocals the most.
- I was 26 years old when I started recording and sequencing. It is no coincidence that since then my vocals started improving and am able to sing the way you find at the site. Intention gets stronger when you start recording and listening to yourself.
- Then there is much more objectivity when listening to your voice as a listener, a third party, an observer.
- Human brain, mind, body – let us not underestimate it. Allow yourself time with the needed equipment and have an idea of what makes good practice, and things start falling in place. I am not a very good singer. But the point is, I was not considering singing at all till i was 27. From there if i can put up youtube videos of singing with guitar, YOU TOO CAN.
- If you want to sing. You should. It doesn't matter if someone else sings better than you – if you don’t sing, your unique song never gets heard. It is your right to do what you want as long as you are not actively hurting anyone. Who cares so much about us and what we do, anyway, that we let ourselves live restricted lives based on imaginary unpleasant social results?
- Keeping on working even when you are not as good as you want to be, till you have the understanding of how to make it good and the skill to execute it : isn’t that all there is to it when it comes to learning and doing something worthwhile?
