What Makes a Song Easy to Sing?
You may ask yourself this, and the answer is quite simple. Songs with simpler lyrics that are easy to remember, having the range of an octave or even less, a rhythm that doesn’t have many unexpected accents and songs that have more a chest voice than head voice. A good place to start may be easy karaoke.
How to Find Your Singing Voice?
It’s important to note that as you mature your voice lowers. It is mo
stly a really small change for girls but for boys, they have a significantly lower sou
nding voice since their voice breaks. Your long term voice may be unpredictable so it’s good to stick with higher numbers for the meantime.
Often pop songs may be a good place to start. It is important to not place too much stress and strain on your voice at a young age since a damage of sorts can end up having a lasting effect on your voice. It’s better and safer to just sing what it feels more natural to you and enjoy that.
Songs Which Can Make Your Voice Sound Good
Yes, it is true that a complex song will most of the time sound really impressive, that much is obvi
ous, but it is also true that there are many tracks that are really simple and they pulled through the test of time. This means that choosing the right song no matter how simple, can still make you sound just as amazing and impressive as any other complex songs. Often times, artists have unusual rhythms or vocal acrobatics added in their songs which can make them sound more complex than they really are.
If you’re able to strip these unusual rhythms and complexities out, then you will end up with a melodic and easy song. If you are able to read music, then you can try getting a hold of the sheet music of the song you want to sing, this will easily allow you to identify the extra added notes and runs, meaning you can easily weed those out and give yourself a much simpler song.
And if you are unfamiliar with sheet music and can’t read it, you can always try doing it by ear with another version of the song, it’s a harder process but it still is another option you can consider.
