Not at all.

#2 Posted by Rick_Fingers (524 posts) -

I am a decent, unseasoned baritone

#3 Posted by Pr1mus (3779 posts) -

Not even a little bit.

#4 Posted by Zeik (2195 posts) -

I can't remember the last time I tried, so probably a safe bet no.

#5 Posted by Korwin (2813 posts) -

No, but I do anyway because fuck everybody else at the party.

#6 Posted by ShaggE (6295 posts) -

Singing is one of my hobbies, and I can carry a tune well enough, but I'm not going to be cutting a demo anytime soon.

Nope.

#8 Edited by rentfn (1277 posts) -

I have the heart of a singer...too bad my singing voice doesn't know that.

#9 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4138 posts) -

I used to be in choir, so sure.

#10 Posted by TruthTellah (8416 posts) -

Yes, but I've always kind of wavered between a tenor and baritone. Though, I can do a great impression of the Koolaid Man, as well.

Yes. Well? Not really.

#12 Posted by pyromagnestir (4195 posts) -

I like to think I don't completely suck but I've never had this verified by another human being.

#13 Posted by JackSukeru (5898 posts) -

I can and I do.

It doesn't sound very good.

#14 Edited by Samael2138 (228 posts) -

I've been singing in bands since I was 16. We did a lot of Misfits covers, both Danzig and Graves,when I was a teen ager. Then through college I was obsessed with Black and Death metal, so I was doing metal vocals for a while. I've since been doing a lot of reggae and ska vocals, actually singing again(compared to death metal vocals, lol) and my voice is somewhere between Bradley Nowell of Sublime, and Kaleo Wassman of Pepper.

#15 Posted by Milkman (16484 posts) -

I've had a couple people tell me that I'm not a bad singer but it is extremely rare that I'll allow another human being to hear me.

#16 Edited by BaneFireLord (2908 posts) -

I'm a bass, though also capable of baritone when push comes to shove. I've done a not-insignificant amount of musical theater and sung ensemble, duet and solo, but I've never had formal voice training.

I'm a fucking rock star behind the steering wheel.

#18 Posted by Giantstalker (1514 posts) -

Nope, zero range and can't hold a tune

#19 Posted by Ezakael (910 posts) -

Not that good but I do it anyway when I play guitar. usually it's alone so I don't hurt anyone's ears.

#20 Posted by Christoffer (1742 posts) -

It is my firm belief that everyone can sing except mutes. Sorry mutes.

#21 Edited by Animasta (14637 posts) -

I'm a fucking rock star behind the steering wheel monitor.

#22 Edited by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

I've been told that I can, but I'm too damned afraid to actually sing when others are around. :/

#23 Edited by AngriGhandi (745 posts) -

I was the lead singer of a four-man Rock Band rock band for like, two years, back when those games were hot

and I was fucking awesome

in my own unbiased opinion

#24 Posted by Morningstar (2127 posts) -

Yes, I sound a bit like a deep sounding Nick Cave.

#25 Posted by RonGalaxy (2840 posts) -

Im one of those people where if you heard my voice by itself its not so good, but is pretty decent with some music. With that said, I play guitar and do that way more often than singing (I also enjoy it more)

#26 Posted by Hamst3r (4436 posts) -
#27 Posted by Brake (1087 posts) -

Yes, but only when I'm drunk.

#28 Edited by Toastburner_B (142 posts) -

If I am being honest, I am a fair to good baritone when in a group/choir. Never had the guts to try anything solo in public.

#29 Posted by MistaSparkle (2148 posts) -

Singing is tough stuff. I can't do it well, but that doesn't really matter when you are alone in the car going 50, does it?

#30 Posted by Dynablade (166 posts) -

Yes, I can sing.

I have a Baritone/Tenor voice, and I love to sing whenever I feel like it.

#31 Posted by Tennmuerti (7957 posts) -

I can technically sing, sure.

No one is gonna like it tho.

#32 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4674 posts) -

Not at all.

#33 Posted by Sinusoidal (1262 posts) -

I've sung in a few different choirs, jazz and classical. I also do a fair amount of guitar/singing solo stuff, mostly at open mic nights and the occasional small show, usually as filler for someone else. I've got a decent vocal range, pretty strong E2 to G4, maybe higher if I scream or do falsetto or lower if I have a cold.

#34 Edited by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Everyone can sing. The only way you can't is if you're mute.

The guy didn't ask if you could sing well...

#35 Posted by kerse (2100 posts) -

Anyone can sing, it just doesn't sound pleasant when I do it.

#36 Posted by gokaired (470 posts) -

Not anymore, I could sing rather well was a soprano and was a decent alto... then puberty, disinterest in life, low self esteem and lack of practice killed my voice. Did a published recording or two and all, now just a fading talent.

#37 Posted by Fattony12000 (6961 posts) -

Nope.

#38 Posted by TobbRobb (4554 posts) -

I can sing, but I'm not sure you'd want me to.

#39 Edited by Gamer_152 (14051 posts) -

Nope, I am absolutely awful.

#40 Edited by thevigilanteoflove (503 posts) -

I sing a lot at my friends when they least expect it and don't want it, and I've been told I have an okay voice. Depending on the song and how high or low pitch is, I sometimes agree with them. I don't know if I'm a good singer necessarily, but I think I'm good at mimicking singing voices.

#42 Edited by Grillbar (1792 posts) -

i can sing but it does not sound that great, granted i only sing when im tipsy or drunk

#43 Posted by Jimbo (9769 posts) -

Fuck no, but I don't let that stop me. I'd love to be good at singing though.

#44 Posted by Scrawnto (2433 posts) -

When I was in a strolling orchestra, I had to serenade strangers at gigs. I was generally one of the better singers in the orchestra, but that isn't really saying much. I can hold a pitch, which is better than a lot of people can say, but I don't have very good enunciation. I look like I would have a high voice, but my vocal range is on the high end of baritone, which means I have to transpose just about anything I try to sing. Most melodies are either slightly too low for my voice or considerably higher than I can sing.

#45 Posted by Slay3r1583 (599 posts) -

It is my personal policy to never sing when/where anybody else can hear me. So I have no idea if I'm any good but I suspect I'm not.

#46 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5138 posts) -

Tralse

#47 Edited by Village_Guy (2482 posts) -

Hell no, not that it stops me (when I'm alone).

#48 Posted by MocBucket62 (1135 posts) -

No, I suck at singing. I'll only sing on special occasions though.

#49 Edited by Hadoken101 (698 posts) -

I'm decent enough, but not anything particularly awesome or anything.

#50 Posted by Svenzon (711 posts) -

I'm not sure. Most of the time I think my own voice sounds terrible, but I've had people tell me I got a great singing voice from time to time. So, maybe I can sing. I just don't know exactly how to do it.
