I hate my voice. 8D;
It's so weak and proper and just ugh. I wish I could belt and sing all powerful and rock out. But no. Forever whispering. Well. Not whispering but y'know.

I don't hate how I sing, but it's not the voice I would ask for. I really fond of the higher and clear vocal ranges. I'm just sad I cannot sing naturally high. 

I used to sing a lot lower, but now I'm slowly not able to hit the low key....so basically my vocal range is becoming just in the middle. But I'm still in the Alto range.

Accept your voice the way it is and start liking it. The more you don't like it, the more it'll suck. So basically it's about a change of perspective. I believe that a person has to like their own voice in order for it to sound good. So if you don't like your own voice, don't expect others to like it.

But of course, vocal training helps a lot too.

i think this is relevant and very good advice so it should be out the spoiler :3

I sound like a doofus with a mic who doesn't give about quality, pitch control, , timing, and actually getting the lyrics right. Plus my tone changes like MID-SONG and ruins the mood. OTL

I sound like a constipated shota when i try to sound cute, but i given up on all that.

I kinda like my voice because it is so versatile and my voice can go deep and high but i cant those low keys or high keys right and my voice ususally sounds forced when i dont even try to force it ;;;-;;;

im still new to singing and i had no formal practice so of course i want to improve. i like singing. i just accept the fact i cant sound kawaii shota but a kawaii alien xD

I hate the fact that my voice is way too low to cover most songs in their original pitch. When I try to sound like a lady, I end up sounding like a male trap singer.

loooooooong thoughts about this...:
To be honest I like my voice when I'm just talking and all... but when it comes to singing, that's a different matter... I'm like the opposite of jack of all trades when it comes to  singing, except my voice though... pitch, tone, timing, rhythm, my voice kills them all haha... 

Recently I find myself liking my voice in screamo which maybe just covers the sound and stuffs so haha... yeah... 

Well I could fairly sing nursery rhymes songs .... *shot* maybe ... 

Oh and I'm hoping to have my voice go deeper too though ... when I sing I usually deepen my voice so uh ... yeah, my talking voice is somehow kiddy sounding and all and I would like to sound uh not like that too... 

And to sum this all up, I like my talking voice when I talk, and hate my awful ability to sing haha... well still new here and all, I'll be improve somehow, hope so haha...


To anyone reading this, wow congratulations you have read a very long story about me complaining about myself... and you deserve cookie... go buy yourself one...
I read that very short story. (Ilikereadingokay) It's wonderful and it shows that you aren't shy of talking about your voice. uguu

As for my own voice, I like it except when it gets tired and shakes.

But there was a time where I liked it so much that it scarred me for life when I was told it was annoying. So indeed, I did have a time where I disliked it.. Prepare for some drama!
Spoiler:
When I was young and small, I watched the Sound of Music and since then, I took a liking towards opera voice and started singing like them. When I first started, I was like a dying hippopotamus but eventually, with much optimism and practice, I managed to pull those notes. Another one was when I started belting with my first VERY BELTY (forme,thatis) song called You Are Not Alone by Michael Jackson. At that time, I was so used to using the head voice that I was crying and sobbing while singing at the same time while using my speaking voice to sing. I was crying and sobbing because it was so hard for me and painful and I hated listening to my voice so much because I was told that my belty voice was annoying as a child and I stopped using my speaking voice to sing since then because I hated it so much and used my head voice to sing for the rest of my days until I had to go back into belty voice again. I was like singsingsingsingsing SOB SOB singsingsiiiiiiiiiiiing SOB SOB SOB SOB singinginginginging SOB sing SOB i cant do this *breaks down*

Imagine, those six years of constant usage of opera voice to sing. And that sudden force kick to go back. That voice that had always told you that your voice is ugly and will always be annoying is conflicting you with the voice that tells you that you have to do it one way or another even if you think it is ugly.

Those feels. Much pain.

But after a while, I picked myself up and eventually managed to stabilize my belty voice. My vocal teacher and mother eventually gave me expressions of satisfaction and I was able to like my so-called annoying voice and graually, I improved. Therefore, liking your own voice/optimism really does help make your voice better.

I just came across this thread. It seems like everyone has more or less similar insecurities, so I hope you'll all gain a lot more confidence and skill soon ;v;

I might as well put this here as well ahaha

I do like my voice, but sometimes I feel like I'm happy with it only because I sing Akiakane's versions a lot. So at times, it makes me feel like I'm not actually getting anywhere, because all I'm doing is using her style of singing, even though I enjoy it very much.

Here is my thoughts:

I actually like my voice. But my sisters said i sounded a lot mature when singing... (=w=")

Sometimes my voice sounded like a shota. But then, my sisters said my voice IS sounded like a shota... (The reason i often being a shota when doing a just-for-fun fandubs)

But, i think my voice is pretty breathy. Especially when i said "A" when i said "Arigatou" in Ai Kotoba II.


Is it long enough? XD I hope it's not that long...

my voice is the most undecisive thing ever. I dont hate it. but i wish i had more uhh force to it? My voice is really gruffy and tomboy/mature like, but its not as powerful as a mature voice ya feel? //hit. If i punch myself in the throat u think it would toughen up a bit? //hi t noiwouldnever I wonder if there's something to fix that?? 


then there are times when the sound comes out so smooth and pretty, and others...im literally sqwaking haaa. I do appreciate those times when it behaves though, I'm able to reach super high notes and stuff that i like uvu...


TL;DR my voice like to surprise me while im not recording. //gross sobbing

I enjoy the sound of my voice! I know what my strengths are and I'm aware of my weaknesses and try to improve based on that! I've certainly gotten so much better than when I began years ago hahaha

That's the best way to improve, though, is just practicing! You'll never be 100% happy with anything, I think, but it's important to enjoy what you do! It's important not to force stuff, but at the same time, you want to push yourself just a little farther every time!

You're right! I sing everyday to take a practice of my voice. I listened to my old covers a month ago and now, I felt that I was improving! :D


But somehow, after I've been funly imitating how an utaite sings, my voice became powerful just like him and my lower octave sounded like him. :/

That's great! Though from the sounds of it, hahaha, you're not too thrilled about that last part? That's what happens though! You do something long enough, you'll eventually find yourself being able to do it to a T! You can always practice other ways to sing if you're unhappy, but it takes just as long!

That's really good! Haha, it takes time! It's a matter of how you think! Next time you listen to yourself, pay closer attention to the parts you like and take note of it! Even though you may not be where you want to be right now, try to enjoy yourself and the effort you put in!

Eh...I kind of have a love-hate feeling towards mine. I'm really indecisive about it. But I know that I will feel better about my voice if I know what to do/sing with it and how to approach songs to make my voice mould in it.
I do feel the improvement and I'm really happy about it when I listen to my old covers and compare them with my current ones C:
If you think about it, utaites/youtaites all have different voices so you can do something about yours to sound incredibly amazing in your own way Happiness

thread bump after a month!

I like my voice.
But. What I don't like about it is that somehow it sounds really rounded (?) when I listen to my own recordings, no idea if it's because I started from classical singing in choir :/
(or because of the room I'm recording in, or my lousy phone mic lol. will get a proper condenser mic to experiment with~)
Oh I can't seem to sing with enough emotion, I feel ><

Some days I like it but A LOT of the time I don't. Especially since it's been a few years since I've been dedicated to singing. Thats why I add a lot of effects to my voice a lot of the time.
