i know this is weird, but...normally im not happy. my futures pretty much shit. i cut and i know i shouldnt but i dont know how to stop.


when i listen to music it feels like everythings going to be ok and my future actually HAS something in it. whats up with that?

well aparently the musics calming you. Everytime i get down i listen to music and it cheers me up. So maybe if you listen to music more often you'll feel better. And about the cutting. Maybe go to a counler to talk about it so they can help you stop. :)
good luck

I love singing, I've been singing on stage since I was 3. People say I'm good so I guess I am. But I also love drumming. I started that when I was 5. Next year I'll be in High School and the way the system works, I can't do choir and band. I really love both alot. Which do you think I should go for.

thats a tough desision. i would be in the same situation if i wouldnt be homeschooled. i also sing and play the drums. but i would ask youself which one you love doing the most and which one you think youre better at. you could also try choir for a year drop out and join band if you are able to do that. because then at least you could do both. or you could start a band, become the drummer and do choir in school. but its basically all up to you.
GOOD LUCK!

Here's the deal: I love singing. I've been singing since 4th grade and I've been in choirs since 5th. I haven't taken voice lessons.

Now, I want to sing a song for a talent show, but my only problem is... MY VOICE IS HORRIBLE. I have experience, but it's just the way it SOUNDS, do you know what I mean?

I recorded my voice on my cell phone, and I got so depressed at the way it sounds.

What can I do? Will singing lessons help at all? Thanks!

okay first off cell phones give off crapy sound. try singing into a good tape recorder. voice lessons might help, but they mainly teach you opera. if you get a voice coach they are more able to teach you how to breath in the write spot and help your voice. so it all depends on what youre aiming for.

Do people hear their own singing voices accurately? Like if you listen to yourself while you sing, is what you hear at all like what everyone else hears? I recorded myself with a $40 recorder---it was muffled and awful and didn't sound a bit like when I hear myself when I sing

when i recorded my self on the computer it sounded horrible but when i recorded myself on my tape recorder it sounded more of what i heard. so the better the equiptment is then the more acurate you voice will be from what you hear. which also means that youd need a more upper class recording studio. the one im going to has really good sound but its like 130$ an hr during the day and 90$ at night.. which is expensive but i know how it will sound. So it basically depends.

I've been told I have a really odd taste in music. I'm just curios {sorry, I can't spell}, what kind of music do I like if I listen to: Fuel, Matchbox 20, Our Lady Peace, Weezer, Verical Horizions, Switchfoot, Poe, Savage Garden, Incubus, and Foo Fighters. But I like their old stuff the best, their new stuff sucks!
~ace

thats not odd i actually like some of those. and it shouldnt matter what other people think of which music you listen to because its just who you are and what you like. I mean i like Weezer, Matchbox 20, Switchfoot, and the Foo Fighters. I dont think your the only one either lol.

My dream is to become a singer.. Do you have any tips on how I could get out there? Or any adresses I could send some demos to?

well to get your self know or your name out there you could try talent shows or if your city is doing a town festival or something ask if you could be in it.

Ok, I like to sing.. and Im pretty good at it(not to be concieded or w/e) but I have the worst stage fright and everyone gets mad when I dont get up in front of ppl and sing.. Its like my personality I am really outgoing and crazy if I know you and am comfortable around you, but if I dont know you Im kinda shy and everything..how do I overcome this!?

it just takes practice. and the more youre on stage the more you get used to it. and one day youll realize that if you really love to sing you wont worry about being scared on stage and it will all pass. i went through the same thing. but maybe if you do sing on stage for the first few times maybe get a partner that can also sing so you wont be alone.

how much are guitar lessons?

it depends on the teacher but usually i think they are around 20$ or so. maybe more or less.

what does it mean when you can through your voice?

it means you can like sound as if you can talk from another area.

ARGH.
So I'm trying to learn guitar, but I can barely stretch a comfortable octave on the piano.
Are there any finger stretching exercises I could do to get my fingers to...you know, like, work? Lol...
I find myself using my middle finger a lot (right now I'm just working on memorizing which notes are where), so the other fingers don't really get a whole lot of streching.
I had a friend laugh out loud when he watched me play Moonlight Sonata 'cause my thumb and pinky fingers were like straight lines trying to stretch the octave.
So yeah. Small hands, wanna play guitar (electric, not acoustic...not even gonna try that), need finger stretches.
No chatspeak, please!
-Siren =)

well once you play the guitar long enough your fingers automatically begin to stretch more so just play alot. Even i can't reach all of them with some of the cords they have. But i figure i'll learn those last lol.

what are the strings for the guitar tuned to on a piano? like the first is an a (i know it's not but what is it?) and what are the rest? and also i lost my last pick so what can i use thats around the house as a temporary pick??? thanks!

the guitar is usually tunes E A D G B E thinkest to thinest. but there are different ways to toon it.
you could just use your figers or you could try a coin i guess, but im not sure if that would be to rough on the guitar. you could try that round part of a key? im sure that would work.

I really love to sing and my friends say I'm good. I don't think I am all that good though and I want to know some good ways to get better without taking voice lessons because I don't have a lot of money. My goal isn't to be a proffesional singer but I just want to be a source of entertainment to my friends because singing is a huge part of my life. Please answer I'll rate 5's

just practicing every day helps. it makes your voice grow into something more. And thats basically the cheapest thing.

I'm looking for lyrics to a Leanne Rhymes song. It isn't very popular but they've played it on CMT a few times. I really don't have a clue how it goes but it says something about her going on a date with the preachers son. And the in the chorus she says something like "it proably wouldn't hurt this bad if I'd never seen your face" I know that's very vague but if anyone has a clue what the name of the song is or at least what her latet album's name is then let me know! PLEASE!

i luv that song! its off of her new CD called: Leann Rimes This Woman. and then song is called:
Probably wouldn't be this way.

Got a date a week from Friday with a preacher's son
Everybody says he's crazy
I'll have to wait and see

I finally moved to Jackson when the summer came
I won't have to pay that boy to rake my leaves

I'm probably going on and on
It seems I'm doing more of that these days

[CHORUS 1:]
I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it
Oh You left so fast
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch
Sometimes I feel like I'm so lucky to have had the chance to
love this much
God gave me a moment's grace
'Cause if I'd never seen your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

Mama says that I just shouldn't speak to you
Susan says that I should just move on

You oughta see the way these people look at me
When they see me 'round here talking to this stone

Everybody thinks I've lost my mind
But I just take it day by day

[CHORUS 2:]
I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it
Oh You left so fast
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes I feel an angel's touch
Sometimes I feel like I'm so lucky to have had the chance to
love this much
God gave me a moment's grace
'Cause if I'd never seen your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

Probably wouldn't be this way

Got A Date a week from Friday with a preacher's son
Everybody says I'm crazy
I'll have to wait and see

i really wanna be a singer when i grow up but im kinda shy and dont like to sing infront of alot of people. can you please help me and tell me how i could get over that ?

i dont really like to sing infront of people, but once your on stage you cant actually see them, so that helps alot. I my self love to sing. But i usually get really nervus infont of people, but thats just me. Alot of people have it actually. But try singing on stage with the lites on. You wont be able to see anyone.
