Beginner Singers, I Feel Your Pain! – What Learning Guitar Taught Me About Singing / – Take my FREE 3 video belt singing course!

Today’s all about me learning how to play the guitar and appreciating what it’s like to be a beginner singer! Particularly when it’s time to practice singing.

Since I’ve been singing like forever, I didn’t realize the struggle is actually real. So I came up with some approaches and mindsets I picked up from learning an instrument that will lead you to the most progress in singing.

Here are a few tips that will help you, my beginner and not-so-beginner friends:

1.) Practice, practice, practice. Beginning singing lessons can seem like it will take hours. Instead, shoot for at least 15-30 minutes a day. It’s better to practice more frequently, for less time, than to do one marathon practice session per week.

2.) Take a break. It’s okay to step away from practice and know when to call it a day. Sometimes you need to sleep on a new skill or technique to help commit it to muscle memory.

3.) Happy practice = Faster progress. Beginner singing lessons can be frustrating. But remember, singing is an opportunity for you to experience joy and have fun. Go easy on yourself and always think positive!

Singing for beginners isn’t that different from guitar for beginners.

Hope you enjoy this vid! Now let’s start strumming and singing! 🙂

    Ok so I have this problem. I really would like to understand (and then
    maybe do) a thing I hear in a song. I don’t know what that is called and
    how to do it. It’s the thing Perrie do at 1:04 in the song “Love me or
    leave me here”. PLEASE PLEASE help.

    Hi Fel, I have the strangest question about singing for you! I hope you can
    help.. I struggle with starting singing on music.. It seems that I don’t
    know wether you start singing on the note or before or after.. when I count
    to four to get the rhytem right I am always late or early when I try
    instrumental songs… how do i get confident in this? does the music leads
    the singer or the other way around? how do you now where to drop the words
    on music what do you listen to? Do you count to 4 in your head
    continueously? Thanks!

    Yes! I was just getting mad at my computer because I couldn’t figure out
    how to make a technical thing work and was ready to shoot my computer! I
    hope I can apply this to my singing and my bad computer problems! Thanks,

  9. This made me happy, what a great way to approach learning, to laugh instead
    of barking at myself, recess is a great metaphor, thanks :)

  10. One Voice says:

    The frustration you had learning beginner chords reminds me of my self my
    sophomore year of high school. It made me me laugh at myself. Thanks for
    that 😄

  15. Jenna MacWhirter says:

    This is SUPER helpful. I’m coming back to singing after a hiatus several
    years long. It’s VERY hard having patience with myself, knowing where I
    *was* compared to now. I have the advantage of that old muscle memory
    coming back, of course, but after an emotionally exhausting first practice
    I was just about ready to give up…except I’d already e-mailed the
    director of the choir I’m going to be joining in September, so I felt like
    I couldn’t. Good thing. You are so right about needing to sleep on it and
    to stay positive. I love your laughing and having fun with mistakes. I’m
    going to use that (and defy my husband to think I’m crazy 😉 ).

  16. Jay Andrew says:

  25. Bruna craftGM says:

    I sing everyday, for several hours. Is this good or bad for me? Am I
    overusing my voice?

  26. Julia Pinzon says:

    I totally understand what you’re saying, I’m learning how to sing but have
    been playing guitar all my life. I just started recording videos of myself
    playing guitar/ukulele while singing and I’ve been realizing that
    positivity and having a good time is the key to making a successful video
    or track. The times I get really into the song and enjoy the way the notes
    feel in my throat/mouth, those are the times I sound the best. I’m thinking
    back to when I was a young child learning chords on guitar I would get a
    bit frustrated too when some of my fingers muted other strings or when I
    needed more pressure but my fingers hurt, but since my brothers also played
    I associated playing guitar with having fun and making music that sounded
    good. Instruments have always been fun for me. Thank you for all your
    singing tips, you’ve helped me a lot. Singing did not come easy for me at
    all, it frustrated me. Remembering to have fun with it has been
    instrumental in my progress. Thanks again for your help

  30. Gerardo Gerardo says:

  31. Gerardo Gerardo says:

    Electric is easier, plus you can Rock-N-Rooooolll !!! 😀 G

  32. All videos gold, thank you.

    I would enjoy hearing ‘beginner singers’ who watch your channel submit some
    vocals for you to give input on and help him/her/us all improve.

  33. Daydreamer says:

    Because I play the guitar I startet singing. Some years ago, I didn’t like
    music at all. Now music is my life :D. I am ill now and I really miss to
    sing :(

  34. Shabtay Matalon says:

    I started learning guitar 16 months ago and your tips and approach are
    right on the money. 4 months ago I stared learning to sing in a college
    class. I’m using many of your on line videos for warm-ups and specific
    skills. Just started working on Vibrato and Belting and we’ll see how it

    I still think that learning guitar is way more difficult …, but maybe
    with singing I don’t know yet what I don’t know.

    BTW, I’m 64 years old, indicating that you can do this at any age.

    And last, besides the value you provide, you are so fun to watch. Cheers!

    Hey fel, I am totally a beginner as I have been practicing vocal warm up
    since pass few days, or may a week, presently I have been working on my
    breathing, which u have UNDERLINED AS THE MOST IMPERATIVE thing as well as
    I am also working on my high note or pitch voice or vocal tune ( due this I
    think my neighbours are bit annoyed with me lol! anyways they will get use
    to it )And relating to this video i would say.
    U always comes out with something wonder ideas, for instance utilising your
    positive attitude towards what u do, which I am definitely going to
    consider it, as prior to this video whenever I used to sung along with my
    favour song, I used to force it (during high note or range), but I now I
    realise by doing this won’t help me. Anyways without going into further
    details, I would like to thank you for all the tips u have suggested on
    your videos. I really enjoy your video provided ur lucid explanation make
    it bit easier to me to understand this humorous domain. Thanks fel. 👍🏻
