My hubby and I are kinda in a sorta duety band thing. He plays guitar and can also play bass and i sing 8)

He has written 10 songs on guitar and now we are just trying to write some lyrics to go with it.

Also, he has decided to learn how to sing, to help with writing melodies and backing me up :)

Does anyone have any good singing tips I can offer him? I dunno where to start (he never sings)?

Or any good ideas for lyrics?

try to hear the note in your head before you sing it.

try to come down onto a note rather than reaching up to it.

don't waver, if you're going to get it wrong, do it confidently.

breathe properly to support the notes and stick dead on the centre of the note if it's long

warm up your voice first.

I spent 7 years in a choir, so my tips probably are a little weird, but they make sense to me. :oops:
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
