    I would say me, but my singing is so bad the neighbors' dogs won't even sing along.

    I'm in. I had a short flirtation in a local band last year. I was on keys only.

    The lead male singer got the boot - he mistook rehearsals for hanging out and drinkin' (plus he was never in the same key as the rest of us).

    I was encouraged by the female vocalist and lead guitarist to sing "Blue on Black". I was not comfortable at first as this was all very strange but the support from the rest of the band was incredible.

    Played one gig with them then quit. It was a blast. I regret not following through but I'm not happy to be in bars after I quit drinking. So yeah, quitting something can be both a positive and a negative.

    I can pay guitar and I can sing.

    My voice is very unique.

    My voice tonality means I can never be a singer.

    I’ve tried to play and sing for the last 25 years. Never really been able to do it to my own satisfaction. I have made a big leap forward recently. Within the last year I have really focused on finding songs that fit my voice and working on them regularly. I’m finding it easier to sing in key and to project my voice so that I don’t cover up my voice with my rhythm playing. I think one of the keys to it is controlling your air supply and controlling your strumming volume. I don’t guess I’m really entry level anymore. I enjoy it and my wife seems to as well. I haven’t really tried performing for anyone else though so still untested I guess.

    Me, played 6 nights a week for many years and did a bit of paid session work, now due to lack of practice & playing have reverted to the status of rank very ordinary.
