It might be i just need alot more..training, and the other thing; but the thing is..me and runs and riffs....I can do some, but not alot..of dem, I'd love to..learn hovv to do them..like..so i can..really, Here a video of me trying to..runn and riff in a gospel song and then hears vvhat im talking about http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Sb_8tij1CU; And also this is also a question about songvvriting, i have chord progression a song like, hovv do i make..a vocal part..from the chord progression, like; C-G-am-em-am-C-G-D-em-F-G; Then the chours, ((theres like a rthyme to it..cant really explain, but hovv vvould i make..a vocal from these...progessions?)); Sorry about this..mixed up topics LOL, it just music makes me carried avvay....!!!

First of all your range is not limited. If the quality of those notes are good than your range is better than most. A majority of people who claim to have huge ranges are really just singing in a disconnected falsetto.

I am happy to be able to maintain connection up to C#5 and on good days E5. I can vocalize up to C6, but it doesn't matter because most of the pitches I sing in the 5th octave are disconnected. If you have to "break" to sing certain pitches then don't sing them. Just focus on singing as far as comfortable and no flipping/disconnecting.

The pitches will come a lot slower in this way, but the quality of sound will be well worth it!

Like the others have said, try to get a vocal teacher if you can.

In addition, it doesn't hurt to read books and get advice from other places (like youtube videos).

If you want to know more about the technical aspects of the Voice, you can try "The Voice Book" by Kate Devore.

In particular, there are separate chapters (with practical exercises) on alignment, breathing, and resonance.

If you need a daily vocal workout CD to go along with, I'd recommend "The Contemporary Singer: Elements of Vocal Technique" by Anne Peckham. I do the workout 6 days a week (High workout Mon-Wed-Fri, Low workout Tues-Thur-Sat, 1 day of rest on Sunday).

You can also try "Vocal Warm-ups" by Hal Leonard.

IMHO, it's more for seasoned pros.

Anne Pechkham's workout (31 minutes) really builds up your voice over time.

I've been using it for over a year now.

There's no replacement for a voice teacher.

But at least you can build your voice and learn more about the voice in your spare time.

Anyway, good luck with everything.

It's good to have goals, but don't get so obsessed over vocal range.

Focus on making your usuable range stronger and build your voice

over time.

By the way, what are the nearest metro areas for you?

Maybe you can find voice lessons in a metro area close to you.

You can often find voice lessons advertised on Craigslist in your area.

Even better, maybe you can get voice lessons at your college.

Or maybe even get lessons from a graduate music student.
