I can’t sing to save my life, but I’d be interested in knowing if you guys can.
If so, can you/could you play an instrument: now or in the past? I played the guitar as a teenager, but realized quickly I didn’t have musical talent. Still, I tried.

I took guitar lessons for a short time. Like KitKatKitty, I discovered I had no talent. I did do some singing as part of a choir, but I never entertained any ideas of “going solo.”October 1, 2019 at 6:56 am #204260
I used to play guitar but nothing serious. Back in my teens there was a little bit of a group scene and I did try singing although I am not good at all and I did find it difficult, even in front of a small number of people. Like most things, I think it takes commitment, but most people are likely better than they think with practice.October 1, 2019 at 8:08 am #204271
Ive always said Im a star in the shower, a diva with a duster, a songbird in a saloon car.. I enjoy singing and I always seem to have a tune in my head. If I concetrate I can carry a tune but admit it, who doesnt love screeching out the whitney high notes they have no chance of really being able to sing just for the fun of it ?October 1, 2019 at 8:16 am #204274
I do know the Mariah Carey’s of the world are in short supply. Mariah is at the very top of her game. Plus, it takes more than one song to make a legend: she’s had 18 – or thereabouts – number one singles. And she’s been in the spotlight since 1988. Most artists would’ve been and gone by now. She isn’t a singer alone, either: she’s also written most of her songs. That kind of ability and stability is incredibly rare. Plus, she’s attractive.
Even if I’d continued with the guitar I never would’ve gotten to that level. A lot of musicians with musical talent maybe have 1 hit album, if they’re lucky. Mariah Carey has had over 8 hit albums. Basically, being able to sing is not enough to reach a professional level. Susan Boyle can match Mariah’s vocal ability, but she doesn’t have Mariah’s song writing talent.October 11, 2019 at 11:01 am #204511
To be honest, even if I could sing, I wouldn’t use that ability. I have no skills with stage work and never will. However, I still love going to the cinema and to the theatre a few times a year: I do admire and respect the performers of the world. Mariah Carey has what I don’t in that regard. And pots of money.
Anyhow, being able to sing doesn’t appeal. I would work behind the scenes, if I were to work in entertainment. The spotlight isn’t for me. What about you?October 11, 2019 at 11:41 pm #204527
