Hello! I'm writing in order to get some ideas of what to do for my problem.

After last saturday's practice session I've started to get a bit Whisky-sounding as well as a cough and muccus. Is there any tip for making this better? it sucks if my voice isn't 100% there when we play our show..

    Get to a doctor and see if you can be treated to relieve the coughing.  Coughing is very hard on your vocal cords.  He may also recommend something to reduce the mucus.  Get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, and don't forget the chicken soup.  If you are hoarse, or have a bronchial infection (which this cough may be) then you need to rest your voice.  Otherwise, lightly doing your vocal warmups is best.

    Get well soon!
