You Get What you Pay For
You can buy a cheap guitar in a pawn shop for $50. You can buy a brand new guitar that actually works fairly well in a Music Store for $150. I’ve seen countless other instruments for sale in music stores, pawn shops, classified ads etc for next to nothing.
Then why in the world would someone spend the thousands of dollars for instruments? You’ll find those in music stores also, as well as classified ads and custom instrument stores.
When you first learn to play an instrument, the only real requirement is that is functions properly enough to learn on. But as you get better, you start to notice the difference in better instruments. They seem more expressive, more resonant, more interesting, more beautiful……and more musical.
The Voice is an Instrument!!!! And it falls in the same category as all other instruments when it comes to quality. There’s a level of utilitarian functionality that is fine when you’re just learning, or as an instrumentalist you’re just sketching out the vocals for a song or doing a basic demo. But if you want the singing to be expressive, emotive, dynamic, and interesting to listen to more than once, you need to have a nice high quality instrument.
You can’t buy a great singing voice off of a shelf, or off the wall at a music store. But you can build a great voice with the right guidance. And your music and your listeners will thank you.
