30 Vocal Tips in 30 Days
No. 5 HAVE FUN SINGING ALONE
Back when the earth was cooling off (you know, before digital music) you had to play piano or guitar if you wanted to have 24/7 access to accompaniment for your singing. If you couldn’t play, you had to find someone who could, or just sing acapella in your living room.
Happily, we now have instant access to the full band or orchestra accompaniment to nearly any song we want to sing. Through our computers or our phones, we can access YouTube, where nice people upload millions of karaoke tracks for free. There are sites like karaokeversion.com that even let you alter the key a little to make a song more comfortable to sing. If you want to buy a nice background track to use in the car it’s a dollar on iTunes.
Making Music Magazine has a great article about cool apps for singers. There are also apps for learning to sing harmonies and for warming up your voice.
This incredibly easy access to backing tracks is not only fun, it’s a great practice tool to help you improve your skills.
TAKEAWAY: Karaoke is the bomb.
