Singing too loud
Hi guys, hope you feel good 😊 I need some help. I'm a rock guy, and I have tendency to give away sometimes and to shout when I sing. I try to help it, as it's an old habit. But I start to feel like my voice changes. Yesterday I took a break. I did a warm-up the day before to keep me in shape. But when I came back today, I felt like my vocals cords started to become leathery. It requires more strength to get to some high notes and it strains and hurts in the throat. Also when I swallow now. I have less resonance in my lower register. My digastric muscle is kinda crispy. I'm gonna focus on extra hydrate my vocals folds to heal them. And I will keep doing the warm ups really lightly just to bring back elasticity, resiliency and moisture. But how soft shout I do them ? Should I belt to keep strength or do the exercises soft and not too high will suffice ? I really want to stay on the road. Any advices ?
