    I sing bass 2 thorugh baritone, and im a part-time tenor, but i do not enjoy squeezing my balls reaching for notes.

    Ive been singing for 2 years and this is my third, but im better at it than a lot of ppl who've been doing it since middle school

    Bass 2 is like the darth vader of singing (for those of you who dont know)

    anyone know any good recording things on the computer? (similar to windows sound recorder)

    also, i see a lot of pianists, if i was learning how to play keyboard what would be some good tips for a beginner?

    If you want a good music recording program use Cubasis, its an awesome program, it can layer multiple recordings without audio corruption. "like the photoshop layer, but for music"

    And anyone whom can type well, already has a headstart in being a pianist.
    I cant read music, i play by ear, but my step-grandfather taught me how to play as he was a teacher..

    A keyboard piano with at least 60 keys is the best choice. anything less and your not going to have a good range. ^_^
    Make sure it has a midi port so you can connect it to your computer, expand your soundbanks, make recordings ect...

    i produce music(mostly hip hop) on my computer using fruity loops 3, and Reason 2.5. I have a evolution mk-449c midi controller, and have just begun taking piano lessons about 2 months ago. I also have my turntables, been doing that about 2 years. I have some cheap ass numark decks, and a pretty nice mixer, a stanton smx501.
    I also record using soundforge 7.0 and a sennheiser e835 mic through my tascam us-122 soundcard/audio/midi interface. i get my dad to play some electric guitar through it, which i can sample later, and my freinds sometimes lay some ryhmes down(they need to work on them a little before i put em on any of my tracks though):p

    go wind players.

    Tenor Sax for 6 years --> Selmer Serie 3, professional model
    Piano for 9 years. ---> Kawai upright, pretty good

    Play in a big band (Sounds of Seventeen, (a local music teacher/ amateur/if you're good, audition for a spot, if you suck, get out. band,) a source of extra income :) )

    Play in all school bands. Jazz, (used to play in Rhythm and blues, but the vocalists sucked and so did most of the rhythm section) , Concert band, a Saxophone Quartet (plus one trombone), another Sax quintet/quartet a few years ago.

    Was a member of the British Columbia Honours Band 2004 (musicians aged 16-25, have to audition, pay money to go, and get to work with a professional conductor and REALLY good musicians)

    Was going to audition for Canada National Youth band, still could, but not sure if I'll have time...

    That's about it.

    Oh ya, I can sing quite well, but I don't like the choir teacher at my school, and although she continually harassess me to sing, I refuse to give in.

    Myself
    I graduated and have diplomas from musical schools (Europe) :
    piano :D
    (I do not much care these diplomas, though) :)

    I "love" to play and "compose" my own music. That is a sort of an escape from "standarized and commercialized" hits. Mind and soul "travels" far far away, for a moment at least :)

    Adobe Audition (formerly Cool Edit), and Sonar.

    One of the best recording soundcards is the M-Audio Audiophile 2496. It's the one I use.

    Here's the model of my acoustic Ovation. Imagine it in a dried blood red color.

    Ovation Celebrity CC059

    Both my Ibanez's
    Ibanez Mahogany Red AXS32DRF
    Ibanez Black GRX20BK

    My amp
    Crate XT120R

    Ive got another amp and an old guitar that usedto belong to my dad. THe amp is so old it doesnt have a label on it. It could be worth $5 or $5000 for all I know. As for the OTHER guitar it was a gift from my uncle to my dad back in 1968. Its worth about -$5 today :p
