    • My highest note has been F# for 4 years? (And falsetto decrease)
      Thanks for the replies everyone. I kind of expected the vocal coaching lecture, my problem at the moment is money. I do plan to have a vocal coach within the next month though. I actually played around with my falsetto, and realized that the problem was technique (I guess my muscle memory for accessing falsetto is terrible). It turns out that I can hit a C5 in falsetto, but it sounds terrible (mickey mouse-esque sound). So I guess my falsetto range has slightly gone up, it's just weird trying to hit it (I'll accidentally sing from my throat 1-2 times before actually doing it right). I've never been able to hit an E5 though, so does the fact that I can still hit the C5 make this sound normal? Also, I do have to belt to hit F4/F#4. I never really feel like I'm straining my voice by doing so, and I've been noticing improvements in tone from the past month alone, but is there a chance that despite this, I'm still doing harm to my vocal cords? One concern is vocal nodules. I did abuse my voice for years (when I was 18, my voice was hoarse for a week, but this went away and I stopped singing for over a year for other reasons). Someone on reddit told me that if I had vocal nodules, I'd know and that there would be a missing part of my register, but is this always the case? They also said that since I'm young, my voice should be more resilient to damage (I've never heard this elsewhere). I really do want to learn everything correctly, I'm just broke and impatient, and I think I'll halt the whole process until I do find a coach, or at least sing in a more comfortable range.  Two other quick questions though. Does it sound like I've even found my head/mixed voice yet, or is that most likely still "unlocked" for me? I've tried to follow YouTube videos to use my head voice, but it just doesn't work no matter how many times I try. I've also read in some places that using your falsetto is what eventually unlocks your head voice. And then the other question, when I DO find a vocal coach, is it possible that I can unlock where I am in falsetto in my full voice within a year? If not, what's the likely amount of time it will take (or at least an estimate)? I know this is a lot I'm asking, but I honestly want to be able to sing my own music I've written, and I need to at least hit an A4 to do it. I've also been told here that you can eventually get your chest voice/full voice to where your falsetto, but it just takes time and work. I'm willing to put in the work, I'm just curious as to how much time it could possibly take. Thanks a lot guys, your responses were all great

      That's some 'hit the nail on the head' stuff there Ron!  Yes, I am guilty of 'mixing' right after recording and you are right. It is a very bad idea. I do like to try to get the whole song - vox and guitar - in one take. A, because they are just demos. (When I feel I have something for 'public' presentation, everything will be recorded separately, to a click, and it will be as perfect as I can get it.) But more importantly B, because its practice to get the song right under pressure. For me, the recording is not just about the recorded sound file. It's also about the challenge of doing something right.
