yahrinagi Posted August 8, 2011 Share Posted August 8, 2011 I am 18 years old and have been a singer for about 2-3 years, never doing it in a very concentrated and serious manner- that means I've had a lot of gigs and which i sang without warming up. I feel like I've abused my voice quite a bit and I understand how foolish and irresponsible it is. I went to my friend's house yesterday and we had a couple of beers, in the spur of the moment i sang a little bit ("Voices" by Dream Theater- some pretty serious high notes) which in itself was stupid and irresponsible. I must stress that I only sang in total for about a little less than a minute. Today I'm experiencing something I cant recall ever having, which is a sore throat the day after I sang. It's pretty seriously sore, an hour back I almost fell asleep on my bed but the pain kept me up and I had to go drink some warm water to relieve it. I am terribly afraid right now. considering the very short duration of time in which I sang, it's clear that my vocal durability is at an all time low. So here is my question: What measures should I take in order to help my voice recover and bring things back to a nice clean sheet(I understand that might not be entirely possible) so I can start booking lessons with a vocal coach and taking this whole thing more seriously(for that I need to be able to sing again). Someone has suggested that I should stop talking for as long as I can in the next couple of days, is that too much? Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
