Hi guys!

I'm really new to singing, but I'd like to get better! So my problem is I've been trying to sing this song, but I think it's above my "chest voice" range so I'm singing it in head voice. I'm pretty sure that the original singers are using head voice too....but theirs sound so much...deeper(?) than mine.

Here are the original singers (sorry, it's in korean...xD):

Here's my partial cover:

Like....can you even tell I'm a boy? I feel like I sound so girly. Especially in the chorus where it's like "toniiiiiiiiight". Actually, just the chorus in general. Can any of you offer some advice?

Oh, and all of their voices sound like they at least have a little grit or something behind them, but mine just sounds so....smooth/squeaky.

And I know my pitch is all over the place haha, sorry!

ratchen: Yes, you sound like a boy, but one that is already singing pretty well. Your voice (for now) is quite lyric, pitch is not as bad as you think. You have many things already working that some singers spend years working on.

What is missing is a smidge of twang, and some better vowel choices up high. Those 2 added will deepen the impression of the voice. Also of some use would be slow 1-octave scales on each vowel, to get a sense of the small modifications that must be made to make them equally resonant.

I hope you find this helpful.

We do not hear ourselves as others hear us. There was nothing wrong with the sound of your voice other than the things that Steven mentioned. It is a normal part of the process.

The deeper sound of the other voices you mentioned developes from more use of that range.

You souded pretty good to me.
