Well, I do enjoy singing, but I wouldn't say it's the best instrument...lol, sorry. I'm partial to woodwinds. But I do really enjoy singing a lot. Nice to meet you

Lets see I've performed on a string, a woodwind, a "percussion", a brasswind, and vocally (all of these at least once, the last two most often though). But I have to disagree with MusicLife, singing is not king... The vocal instrument does not leave enough up to the audience's imagination, unless of course its avant garde and they aren't singing words (thanks to Mrs. G. for that experience on her Norton Recordings CD's). Not only that but the other insruments leave so much room for dynamics and their timbre can be more easily altered... I'm sorry if I had to pick one instrument as the best, it'd have to be the trumpet... but piccologurl will say that I'm definitely biased... and thats probably because I am, but i at least thought for a while about it...

I LOVE singing! Can you sing? Like, consider yourself good? If so, what style do you sing? I am contempoary but can do classicle/opera, and celtic (which is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pretty by the way, like, when you listen to someone else) Except I'm teh kind of person who can sing, and knows they sound good, but whenever I hear recordings I'm like: "NOOO TURN IT OFF! IT BURNS!!! " and you get the point.

I like to sing more modern songs. I'm not into contemporary music that much... And that's true actually, I don't like to hear myself. But I think I am a fairly good singer.

I'm not going to talk about whether I'm good or not, because I'm probably not. And I do hate to hear myself recorded, except if it's on video.

I sing mostly classical, since I've been told often I'm no good for modern stuff (I've been told so many things! Also that I'm no good for classical, but I just couldn't care less). What Celtic music do you sing, Pianist? I'd like to know more about that, because although I like Celtic music a lot, I've only listened to instrumental stuff, and I'm afraid my idea of a Celtic song is bellowing at full power: "SHE IS HANDSOME SHE IS PRETTY SHE IS THE BELLE O' BELFAST CITY!!!" and things like that.

What??? You're not singing Spanish football songs? They won again today!

I actually listen to a lot of Celtic music, it's a pretty huge genre so it's easy to find something you like. And, if you want bellowing you can always go the route of celtic-punk style like the Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, or Flogging Molly.

Just at random I've been listening to this artist recently: http://www.caradillon.co.uk/

Also, Alasdair Fraser, Bonnie Rideout, and Natalie MacMaster fiddle CDs.
