I'm truly terrible, no spring chicken and a computer dummy - so not sure if or what I should order.
I think being able to sing would be very healing for me if it's possible, and watching Ken's youtube videos have been the first thing that has made me think that perhaps it might possible. I don't need to be the "best", but I do need to be able to follow things easily. That's where my concerns lay. A lot of the things listed in what is included I won't need at all. I don't want to perform. I just want to sing well for myself and it seems like half the materials of the pro package is geared to performers. I also would need to know EXACTLY how much and what to work on every day. I'll do it if it's straight-forward, but if it's the least big "ambiguous" I could easily get overwhelmed or discouraged. I imagine that I could use some hand-holding. So, I was thinking that being able to post my awfulness for guidance would be a necessity, but for all I know maybe the best thing is to just get the weekend warrior???
My one redeeming quality (but also a curse) is that I have a really good ear (that's why I know I'm so awful - I just can't seem to "fix" it). I play the classical violin and I have always assumed that I just own a lousy instrument in my throat and that there's no hope for me so I should just make sure never to sing. I can't tolerate listening to others sing out of tune either btw. That's why if this isn't likely to work I would just be torturing myself (listening to myself trying) and would prefer not to if it's not going to pay off in the long-run. All instruments need to be learned, so I do understand that the ONLY way for me to be able to sing is to practice and to have a good teacher, but I also know that some instruments can be just made too badly to ever be able to be played in tune. Can any throat be trained to be in tune and make a good sound if given enough time and practice with these methods? Should I even try?
Will the videos be a step by step, do this today kind of thing? I don't have a camera so will someone help me to figure out how to record just my voice to get help? If it's even possible, is there a package that's just designed to make it so that I don't cringe when I sing? Practicing daily for a year - no problem - IF I'm not just throwing away my time (when I could be using it to get better at a good external instruments instead).
Has there ever been anyone that just couldn't do this?
If I order the weekend warrior and it starts to work and then I want to upgrade to the pro package, could I do that and pay the difference? Is there some sort of guarantee on the weekend warrior that if I try it for a time and still stink, that I could return it?
I know that these are a lot of questions, but this would be a big deal for me to undertake this project of trying to create a diamond out of a piece of coal. I'm intrigued, but still quite confused. I truly appreciate anybody's information or opinions!
Thank you in advance
