Short impro acoustic demo / Aint talking bout love

Hey everybody!

After trying out to get anywhere with my voice without any success I´m considering buying the course... but I´m really unsure whether I have any perspective with what I´ve got atm.
I´can´t hold any long notes, vibrato is non-existing, vocal range is very unstable...
I decided I´ll just sing a few seconds of Van Halens classic with my guitar to show you what it sounds like right now.

What kind of voice would you say I have, baritone/tenor or is it too early to tell?

Got my 300 dollars ready in case I decide to buy the course today... but still hesitating. ^^

Greetings from Berlin and may your voices never be hoarse! :-)



  • Hi @Slavicbeard! I don't know enough to be able to say whether you are a tenor or baritone, but it doesn't matter, as your singing range will grow as you practice. Did you know that you are already doing some things very well? I couldn't see any tension in your throat as you sang, your shoulders didn't rise, and you open your mouth well and show your teeth. Your tone is nice, I heard a vibrato, and your pitch is also pretty good!

    Before you get the course, you might like to look at Ken's YouTube channel and work with his practice workouts for a while. This will show you whether Ken's teaching style will suit you, and give you a good idea of what the course is like. All the issues you mentioned will be sorted out with the course, and I definitely recommend it! But there's nothing wrong with using the free videos for a while before you make this purchase. Many students on the course have done this.

    You have been again faster than me, @Sophia. I would have written something similar.

    And, @Slavicbeard, I love Van Halen. Try not to go in a too lowered laryngeal position when you go for the low notes. You should really do the free exercises from Ken and you will see you voice growing.

    Thx heeps for the comments, my friends. ;-)
    Feels great to know it´s not totally hopeless, haha.

    I´ll check out the free stuff then and make my purchase decision a bit later.
