Returning from the void

Hi All,

I’ve been away from the forums for so long that I thought I best to reintroduce myself.

I purchased the course 4 years ago. I’ll be needing to start from scratch because I had one of those “I hate my voice, I should never sing” moments early on and did exactly that - stopped.

Ugh now I’m so annoyed with myself 😂, all that lost time and effort

It seems a lot has changed. There’s a course upgrade? Wow I had no idea. I’ll try to post regularly and I hope y’all keep me accountable, because I don’t want to disappoint myself and give up on my dream of having a great voice again.

    Yes, but the good news is that you are back. There is always time to start anew, even in the middle of trying to forge ahead!

    Remember: Perfect practice makes perfect. It's what you put into it as you move along that matters most!

    Welcome back mate. I failed on my first attempt, but am making some real progress now with the help of everyone here :wink: .

    @codeowl I hope to make good progress, I’ve been back at it for a week now and it honestly feels like I’m starting from a worse place than my first attempt.

    But I remember the progress I made that first time so I’ll just keep at it. I plan to post a video of a workout in a few days.

    No ideas of any songs to work on though.

    Sounds good. You can read about my first attempt at the course in the link to my background story in link on my profile page, and there are a few other posts I have done on the things I have learnt in my second attempt at volume 1, you may find some value in these. In some of the posts there references to key timestamps in the Vol 1 vids were some of the foundational stuff is. I found there was a lot I mist in my first attempt and just being eager to start singing:

    There will be plenty of time for songs. I put the songs on the back burner a bit to focus on technique. I also went back to the starter exercises as they are a bit slower and have stayed on these as I find it easier to focus on technique with trying to negotiate the more rapid pitch changes of the main exercises. I have a couple more things to get right and then I will move on.

    I posted my first cover recently, and got some great direction from Doc and have been working on this since. I am going to post a updated version in a few weeks to demonstrate applying the advice :smile: .

    What styles of music do you like?
    Do you play any instruments?

    Hi there and welcome back!

    Every day there's a new opportunity to start something new. Happy singing.

    A warm "Welcome" also from Germany: my name is "Doc" and I am doing the course for 2.5 years now. Take care, mate, Doc
