malo23 Posted January 21, 2015 Share Posted January 21, 2015 Friends, I am new to this forum, though I have been doing lead vocals with an all-original rock band for over a year now. I take lessons and consider myself to have good, if not excellent, pitch under "normal" singing conditions, which means, for example, acoustic live, studio (we cut our first full-length CD last year), karaoke, etc. However, I've been experiencing problems with pitch, particularly in my upper range (I am a tenor), ONLY when singing live "electric." Our band is pretty loud -- distorted guitars, heavy drums, etc. -- and, though I've tried everything, from singing with no earplugs, to singing with two earplugs, one earplug, and even using wireless in-ear monitors (though, admittedly, I am not very used to them yet, as I just invested in them recently; before I had tried using cheaper non-wireless in-ears to little avail), I still have moments when my pitch is off (usually sharp, as if I'm overreaching?). I know this, because we often record our shows, and when I play the recording back...there it is! This rarely, if ever, happens, when we perform an acoustic set (again, I've listened to many recordings for comparison), so I'm perplexed, frustrated, and now beginning to lose confidence, even. Does anyone have any suggestions at all as to how I can improve my pitch under very loud conditions (and while running around the stage!)? This is something I never dreamed I'd have a problem with when starting out in a hard rock band! Thank you for your time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
