Newbie and a question
Hey everyone. I'm excited to be here. I haven't had much instruction. I took a year of choir in HS but it was not good training. My parents always hung around musicians and mom played a little guitar and then I married a musician 28 years ago who taught me some guitar chords (just like that Tom Petty song ) and so I've written and recorded a few songs with a lot of help from his talent and skill and sang a song here and there with his bands. We are getting older and through the covid thing his band struggled and one of them is unable to continue so I am taking his place with the high harmonies and some lead vocals. Oh yeah... a relevant thing to mention; something like 5 or 6 years ago I was taking the bad advice from my HS choir teacher and trying to "sing over" a cold with no proper instruction on technique and I got vocal chords nodules! That scared the crap out of me. I can't "not sing". So anyway, that started my search for ways to sing the songs that I love without injuring my voice... research in the form of Google and YouTube. I heard a lot of different instructors that I picked up a couple of helpful tips from but I kept coming back to Ken's so we will see how it goes. I don't know how to label my experience... seasoned beginner?
