Thanks to "allexperts.com"

Women who are classically trained usually have a range that goes from approximately G below middle C to the C or D two octaves above middle C - so the range is two octaves plus. The lower women's voices will go from the low D below Middle C to about Bflat just below high C (again - about 2 1/2 octaves). Soprano's or higher voices range from around the G below middle C to anywhere from High C to the F above High C... Men are somewhat similar - although the tenors' highest note is usually a High C and not too much above. Basses go much lower.

confusing... I'm not classically trained, but I can comfortably reach from F above Middle C, and down two octaves from there. what would I be? A Low Alto?

Weell...I have a pretty good range. I'm better at alto, but I can sing anywhere from (most) Soprano 1 songs (also depending on how well I exercise my voice) to around Baritone 1...probably Tenor 2/Baritone 1...I'm just going by what my choir teacher told me Sophmore year.

Sounds like it...sounds like you could fit into tenor range, too.

heh heh... whoops! thanks for replying, Manders, but I got that wrong... I go from the F below middle C to two octaves above. Whoops! I guess that would be a regular alto then?

Ok to be honest I probably can sing between baritone and alto. I can sing along to creed and not miss a note and I can also sing to bands like incubus without missing a note. I mean this is coming from a guy who covered "Never let you go" by third eye blind.

i could sing the lowest note in my school chorus. almost 'nuff said.
when singing classical music, i am a bass. but with other music, i can sing a little higher, kind of baritone. when singing along with switchfoot, i sometimes have to drop an octave.

In chorus, i'm usually a bass 1. (the higher of the 2.) but i can do bass 2, also.

years ago when I was IN choir... I sang: soprano, alto, and baritone.


I used to tell rickus ((Mark. The only guy who was singing baritone at the time)) that my voice hadn't changed yet. This was why they'd have to adjust the baritone lines...

i am a tenor. proud of it. i sing tenor in choir, i sing tenor leading worship.
my range goes from a low G to a G above middle C on a good day, with almost another octave if i use my falsetto.

i always thought that the terms tenor and bass were reserved for men in this day and age, and sopranno and alto for women, with the exception of young boys. nothing wrong with redefining voice parts i suppose.

I'm a true bass, and I can go as low as any bass part I've ever seen needs, but I can also sing second tenor if I need to. I just can't go as high as true tenors.
