What's your vocal range?

It's always interesting to see how physically capable you are.



Right now (after drinking a bunch of beer) I go from E3 to C6, which is nearly 3 octaves. (Note that in this video the octave starts at C, so A2 is higher than C2.)

Start by singing as low as you can, and figure out which note it is. Then raise your pitch until you can't raise it any higher, while tracking the note with an instrument. Then keep track of how many octaves you were able to go.

I think my top note used to be a lot higher than my current one is, but my overall range is also wider, so on the whole that's a good thing, I guess. This is what comes from me pushing myself to sing better and with a wider range rather than just writing my songs to fit in my existing limited one.

I voted for "I AM A ROBOT WITH A MONOTONIC VOICE BLEEP BLORP" because it made me grin. :D

I don't know my range, but I know I can't go real low and I can't go too high. So......2.5?

I have no idea - but when I performed in HMS Pinafore a few years ago - I was in the bass section of the chorus. And I also use falsetto a lot for backing vocals - so I suppose there is a pretty big gap between those. Actually hitting the notes I want to hit though is another matter entirely.

Okay, fine, I just posted a video at the top which should make it easier for your lazy bones to figure it out for actual.

Okay, C3 to A5? Not sure how that equates to the pole poll you erected.

That's closest to 2.5 octaves. Come to think of it, my results were closer to 2.5 than to 3 as well (E is closer to G than C).

Although the scale on that video is a little wonky, because the second part starts at a lower note than the first part. I'd rather if it started at the same note both times since otherwise it's easy to screw up and start in a different octave when you sing along and thus add or subtract an octave.

I can hit G5 before going falsetto, but it isn't all that pretty. I've got at least an octave up in falsetto afterwards. Going low, I dunno. do you call it G1 or just G?

I'm totally counting falsetto in my range. And it's still G1 - at least in Logic the note scale goes all the way down to like G-3 or something.

I must be doing something right because now my range is a solid 3 octaves.
