My Biggest... and Only fear. Keeping me safe? or Holding me back? Answered
I want desperately to be able to sing well in front of people, but I just can't. right now I think I am .... well..... almost OK at singing. I think I have some potential but I'm terrified to sing in front of people. I have played Bass guitar and lead guitar in front of 10 + thousand people on a couple of occasions and it was the biggest thrill of my life. I think the difference comes in because.... I know I am a great Bass player...... and a pretty awesome guitar player (not trying to brag, just kinda makes my point) but I have no idea if I'm even close to listenable (is that a word?) when I sing..... mostly because other then fall down drunk, I've never sung in front of people (The crowd was also fall down drunk, so no help there) I practice daily but only when there isn't a person for miles that could possibly hear me. I recored myself often and listen to it..... I can defiantly hear much improvement since I first started really trying to sing..... but I couldn't tell you if I went from god awful to please stop singing or if its decent to not bad. I've considered recording a song and posting to youtube..... figuring that maybe I could get some feed back without embarrassment...... but even that terrifies me. How can I get over this?..... even if just to find out if I suck or not?
