Hey, i'm new here.
I started learning to play guitar and decided I also want to improve my vocal abilities. I want the full package
I have no aspiring to become a pro singer. All is want is to be able to sing while playing the guitar or singing in karaoke and that me and my surroundings will enjoy.
I have high self awareness and simply saying my problem is that my voice sucks. I know a lot of people say they have a bad vioce but mine really is. This makes singing not fun for me or anyone around me.
I know the best solution is getting a teacher but this is not an option at the moment. So the solution is some self study product.
I also know that there are a lot of great products and that everyone has their preference, so what i'm looking for is the the product that focuses the most on the foundations - both by EXPLAINING the basics and by training(duh).
After googling and searching in relevant forums I got pritty big list of the recommended coachers:

Can anyone with experience with some of these coachers/products point me to what product should I get? A product that will address my needs the most. (I do not restrict myself to the above list. I don't have problem to learn from multiple sources if necessary-as long as the price is reasonable).
If that matters, the music I listen to the most and want to sing is rock(coldplay, arcade fire...), britpop(oasis, smiths...) and folk/folk-rock(elliott smith, bob dylan...) - so nothing fancy like metal or opera
