@ CosmicLea -I'll bet you have somebody else in your family that can sing! :wink:

My mom's side has the music! My grandpa and his whole family, & my mom could sing.
I'm not saying I'm a special singer, but I can carry a tune! I think I'm the only one out of 5 kids :shock:
(they got my dad's genes!) :lol:

I am not a professional singer, really, I make just a little money singing, but I couldn't live from it. Have to keep my day job!
I have been notified that one of my bands is concidering entering a eurpean music contest. Haven't heard the details, but it is exciting never the less!

Yes, absolutely! Actually, both my mum and dad can sing. They always sang in the choir at church when I was growing up. Dad plays the guitar by ear (he can't really read music but can listen to a song and pick it up) and was taught by his uncle when he was young. Dad was teaching my daughter to play guitar but he now struggles to play due to the Parkinson's disease (he still tries though).

You sound pretty professional to me Stormey! :wink: Did you ever have singing lessons? I never did but wish I had, to help with breathing and phrasing properly.
All the best with the contest - very exciting! :D

I did take technique training and vocal training for 6 years. It is very neccesary if you have to sing for 3 hours per gig. You have to be able to sing through a cold or like I had last time, pneumonia. that is when technique is really neccessary.

I sometimes take a view lessons to update my techniques. It's like with any other job..you sometimes need extra training.

I understand control is most important to singing!
And yes, every day can't always be a good singing day. Technique must be very important!

I was in a small music program, and had voice lessons, along with theory, ear-training & piano.
I had to sing a voice final -some Italian opera! ("Il Trattoria" maybe? I'm sure it wasn't that good!)
Oh, and I forgot -I sang in a church choir, which was recorded on CD!
(The priest was a music major, and writes musicals!)

Heard "Too Young To Die" at a restaurant where we had dinner yesterday. :D
And I had just been saying to my husband that even though we couldn't properly hear the music they were playing, it sounded good (because I could hear the basslines.) Then TYTD was the next song! (And the volume seemed to be turned up!) 8)

He likes their music, not as much as I do, but thank goodness he does like them and lets me play them all the time! He actually really liked all the singles from AFO when they came out here (AFO was a big hit in Australia.) So that was the first JMQ cd we bought. :D

My husband's not such a fan of music :shock: I know, I try not to hold it against him!
But I did play him part of the Nobel Peace Prize concert, and he said it was good! :wink:

It would be a sad day if your husband dictated what music you listen too...I only listen to music that tugs at my heart.........listening to Jay sing does just that! :roll:

Yes, very true. But I'm a meanie, if my husband is playing music I don't like (such as Elvis Costello or 70s rock or lots more that I don't like) I tell him to change it!! :twisted: :lol:

yeah, me too! If there's a song on the radio he chose but I hate, I will change it, he mostly won't care!
My husband is the type to walk into the house, and turn off my kitchen radio, or turn off the radio in the car when he gets in.
actually I'm kinda liking Elvis Costello these days! :o -you don't like 70's Rock? :shock:

With 70's rock it depends on my mood, but I really am more of a disco/funk/r&b/(even) pop fan. :wink:
