Killing my voice to fight the mucus from winter's dry heat at home
I have every possible problem under the sun when it comes to my singing, I started the program 5 months ago. If you heard me singing right now you would take my mic and hit me over the head with it before throwing it away. My biggest problem is post nasal drip from dry heat, I can't clear my throat enough times. Out of frustration I try to punch through the phlegm by screaming rather than singing. Another reason why I over-sing is because of singing alongside the original tracks I want to imitate, forcing me to get louder to "stand out" over the original singer. I know in time I will correct everything and become able to sing "Better Than Anyone Else", I do have a powerful voice after all. I am now wondering if I should give my voice a break to get rid of the hoarseness. I don't know how to slow down or stop, I am just not wired that way. I used to do AC/DC covers as a teenager because I sounded just like Brian Johnson, now I am 48 and can't do that to save my life. I am not interested in that sound anymore, I picked on Brent Smith from Shinedown and have been massacring is music with my voice. I have an incredible amount of confidence that soon enough I am gonna be not just good but amazing, but right now I sound like the victim of a horrible crime screaming for help lol
