Oh noes.... I'm asking for musical help on WritingForums. Ah well, I'm too lazy to make an account to a music-based forum, and most writers are multi-talented. I'm very skilled at flute (well, that's what my instructor says), but last year I started dabbling in acoustic guitar. I'm good at chords, but I don't have the "Cobain calluses" to make them sound really clear (they sound very squeaky and horrible). I also enjoy doing covers, but my voice sounds very nasally and high-pitched (which is odd because my voice sounds low-pitched compared to other girls when speaking) when they are recorded. The only time my voice sounds good is when I sing along to previously recorded songs, because I can easily change the pitch to match with that kind of reference. But I ca't do it listening with earphones, because I find it distracting. Maybe it's just my webcam's audio quality, but I don't know. Other than practicing, any tips from some tried-and-true musicians out there? As far as I know, there are no rules against threads asking for musical help. But, there also isn't a rule against making a thread asking for a word that rhymes with "orange" (it does have to do with writing...). So, sorry if I'm breaking any rules, and any help would be appreciated.
