I am accompanying a band as their singer in 2 weeks for their school exams and we're covering Biffy Clyro's Black Chandelier and Sounds Like Balloons and I'm so scared.
If you give them 2 songs a listen, I find them vocally challenging as Simon Neil repeatedly hits the F sharp and although I can hit it briefly (only after warming up) my voice shuts down when I have to sing it in the certain pattern of that song and if I mess up on the day of the performance, it is a huge mess for them as this is the audition for a music college they want into, I'm just accompanying them.
I didn't turn it down because I really want to do this but I'm scared that two weeks isn't enough time.
I just did the volume 1 exercises and I tried belting out Biffy but my voice is sore now so I'm leaving singing for tonight...
Maybe I need a good checklist of EXACTLY how to benefit to the max with vocal workouts every day and how to apply them into real songs..
If I can work out my vocal cords 100% efficiently every day for the next 2 weeks, I'm sure I'll be able to hit the note for longer...
I need a checklist though!
