Hey Everyone,

I tested my vocal range using this

on youtube. According to this I have a range of G2-G4 when I don't use falsetto and G2-C5 when I do use falsetto. Is falsetto typically counted in your range?

Do you want it to count?

I wouldn't do that stuff where you count unusable notes. If you can't produce a full tone real vibrato, it is most likely not going to be very valuable. Some people count all of the sounds they can make at different pitches which is absurd. That would give me like 7 octave range with three of the octaves being worthless.

If you want help with your voice you can post a simple siren, scale or song with you singing.

Consuming I wouldn't consider vibrato a necessary criteria lol...only for classical. Straight tone has LOADS of value in contemporary music, it's all I've been singing with for years. Just now starting to toy with adding a little vibrato here and there.

The way I see it personally I like to know my absolute range for each configuration of singing. Chest voice head voice falsetto etc, individually. And then let what I hear as I'm practicing songs help me decide whether the note is usable in that case or not. Some notes will be usable in the studio and not live. Some notes will be usable in some songs and not others. It all depends, so my answer would be, however you want to view it. I prefer just knowing what my voice can do, period. Defining something as usable or not is something I leave up to my own intuition. If I don't feel comfortable singing x note in x situation then it's not usable. But it may be usable in an another scenario and I always stay open to that.

I talked about vibrato in my other post but just to touch on it here:

I don't think it has to be used in singing for many styles but it SHOULD be able to be used if need be. It is a good barometer of what your tension free (Or mostly free) range is where you can't really hurt yourself and you don't have to push at all.

Hm I sort of agree...like I said in the other thread everything you're saying would be so true for classical singing but contemporary singing tends to have lower standards in most of that stuff...I hate to degrade my own style but its kinda true, excellent technique is not required in the art of contemporary singing.
