I see two different kind of singers out there. Those that cant hold a note or reach a note without falling flat (these are the ones that need to practice) and those that have a fairly lousy voice, but can keep a tune. If you are blessed with the ability to hold a tune and change pitches at will, even though you may have a bad voice, then you really don't have a problem. Examples include, Willie Nelson, Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan. Their voice isn't the greatest but they write great music and can hold a note through a storm. As far as learning to sing on key, I am not sure how they teach that. Some people just can't do it. On the other hand, people who used to be able to sing, but have experienced hearing loss, also have a problem because hearing is very important to be able to sing on key. Short of a hearing aid, I am not sure what the solution is, or if there is even a solution. I have heard people comment that if they can start off te song with the correct note, they don't have a problem with the rest of the song and there are good days and bad when it comes to this. Singing is important to me because I play mostly chords, strumming patterns and without a melody to sing, you wouldn't know what the song is. If you had it ands lost it, I feel your pain. Is it possible to hold a note correctly if you can't hear yourself singing? I don't know. I really hope you find a solution. I'll be reading up on it in the mean time and if I come up with a solution I will post it here. Good luck buddy.

I have finally found happiness in my life. Guitars, singing, beer and camping. And they all intertwine wonderfully.
