How can my voice suit reggae?
« on: March 03, 2008, 01:23:47 PM »

Greetings everyone,

I was interested in Rasta a long while ago (seems a long while) and now getting back into the swing of things, I myself, I believe there is God 'Jah',
I feel the nature, i love the nature.  But recently corresponding to the changes that are happening, I have been learning to sing through music teacher at school.

Here on this site, Ive been singing a cover from a rock band, I sang sad and slow songs, But I want to sing reggae.  I have a british voice, and i want to keep it this way due to I want to be me, not change my accent to suit another.  I want my own voice, to identify myself, not impersonate somebody elses.

Can somebody give me tips or anything possibly to help me along with producing my own reggae voice.  Thankyou very much for your time.

Also I must add, The second song - "a person I ruined".

Is my own lyrics, not cover.
It is about my female friend who ive known for a very long time who suffers from skitzophrenia and at the very time. . .  I thought it was my fault due to drugs and etc.  well anyway, just wanted to add that, thanks again in advance.

I check yu cite
--Have you been saved? Salvation cures guilt imo
Hey mon
Chant along wit a reggae tune, learn a cover
or at a time put down electric and see the ites of a drum.
Cos a musician grows the original style with much practice and livication.

Reggae singing is generally obviously associated with black Jamaican accents so overcoming this is a challenge for all non blacks and non Jamaicans wanting to sing reggae. Sing along with tracks but don't try to impersonate a Jamaican accent, unless you can do a convincing job of it!
