#beginquote# Once again, thanks for your reply. I understand what you're saying and implying with that excellent reply. I am aware of the differences in musical genre, culture, and time signatures. Therefore, singing in relation to those. In a way, that is exactly what I and maintube were touching on, that singing does follow (to some extent) the musical aspects - latin-american, indian, blues, hymns, etc. You kind of emphasized that point by pointing out that different musical styles require different singing practices. However, I understand your implied message...which is that while it is important when singing to suit the music style/genre/culture of the music itself, it is also important to be free and interpretive, to be creative and just whatever sounds/feel right to the music. I understand and agree, just wanted to push the question in case there ARE rules of thumb for singing, in case there are certain good practices to keep in mind when singing a song (in whatever style/genre/culture). Certain universal rules or good practices. So, in a way, I am still unsure IF there are any, what they are. All I knew before, as I know now after both your replies, is that with singing, it's entirely interpretive and just has to sound right. Before I go ahead and record my songs, I just wanted to be 100% sure I wasn't making any big mistakes. I hope you can appreciate this, as I am not as knowledgable as yourself or maintube. And therefore seeking some advice. #endquote#
