Why are there age restrictions? When the boys played in bars underage, they just weren't allowed to drink (of course), but usually there were a few parents there. I think a couple were no admittance under 18, too. There was one place that one of the moms refused to let her son play at though and I agreed with her. They were getting busted upstairs sll the time for drugs or something. That was the only place they didn't play though.

I used to be all nervous and stuff about on stage permformance, but that has kind of gone away. I still get nervous when I'm drumming (I'm the drummer of a little 3 piece emo-metal-pop-punk-rock-whatever-band, and I sometimes have to drum for school performances and stuff), but that's because people think I'm good (I'm much better than most of them are), when I'm not (in particular, I lack control of my right foot (bass drum), especially when I get nervous (and the f*cking bd is miked up so anyone can hear my fuck ups....)), but I usually don't feel nervous playing the saxophone in any of the groups I'm in (a wind band, orchestra thingy, a big band, and a sax quartet/quintet). And lately, I've kind of sung a bit during rehearsal with the emprw-band, just for the hell of it. I kind of feel that it's not my problem if they don't like what I do, because 1) I'm doing this my way, and I can't be bothered to change that and 2) it's not overly serious, and 3) the other guys can't do it much better.

Just start singing all over the place. Going to school, in the (uhm...... food place thingy, where you have your lunch (assuming you go to school)), around the house, anywhere. Since you're doing clean vox, you've got an advantage. It feels stupid to walk around in the middle of some city growling, but quietly humming or singing something isn't as bad.

And just don't care if someone is better than you, or thinks (s)he is. Don't care. They may be better singers, that's possible, but would they fit in the band? Can they do the other stuff you do (I don't know you, so I don't know what to say here)?

Just get used to singing, first when you're all alone, then when you're with trusted friends, then when you're anywhere where people don't mind other people making a little bit of noise, and then in front of strangers who actually came there just to listen to you and your band.

I have a 2 piece band and a drum machin. i sing and lead, and the other dude just plays like backup. but as im walking around the house on my own, im always fucking growling. i have lots of time for myslef and when ever i get th time im growling and playing and writing lyrics.

i find it easy now because id invite friends over and we play but without a mic for me. i got used to it also because id be walking around growling along to shit all the fucking time.

ok, so look. the best advice isjust keep singing around your friends or at a band practice, give it all youve got. the worse that will happen is that they'll tell you to pick up your act. or theyll kick you out.

and if that happens you shouldnt be singing anyway

drink a shot before you sing...thats what i do...or if your too yound or just wont drink then a lot of coca cola does the trick too. getting really hyper or one shot will make u mellow and then it all sounds perfect....
to you at least

I sing operatic in the shower and is sounds good. But then again, most everyone sounds good in the shower. heh, but yeah, I do sing (jokingly) whenever whereever I feel the need. The other day I recorded myself singing along with Barlow...hahaha...

yeah, that's the painful way, just learn how to sing. (take a couple lessons maybe...)then you'll actually know how to get better and how to hit notes not usually in your range. basically, it just takes practice.

Oh, just learn all the parts to "The Lion Sleeps Tonight " and you'll have a 4 octave range. It beats the nut buster.
