Need songs for a limited vocal range?

Being able to cover songs that actually sound good with my voice (and style) is something I’ve been battling for years. This is why I’m in he process of creating… [drum roll] >>> BASS BARITONE TABS

Though I’ve written several songs to suit my voice, I have recently decided to get paying cover gigs, so I’m in the process of compiling a list of songs that work for my bass-baritone voice, finding the tabs (chord progressions for guitar), and setting them up for printing to put in a binder to take to cover gigs.

Morrissey, looking cool and singing low

One hurdle is finding songs that fit your voice and you actually like singing. This may be something you’ll have to do for yourself, but to help me, I’ve heeded the advice of one of my friends and music mentors, Chris Cates. He’s got a ton of songs listed on his site that he plays out and I’m in the process of learning as many of those that work for me. You’ll notice Chris is a definite tenor and has notes I’ll never have, so I’m also looking at the songs of other singers, like those of Morrissey  (lead singer from The Smiths).

For any of you reading, you may have looked for tabs online and been disappointed that the chords are sometimes inaccurate, so what I’m going to do is take all of the songs in my cover song book (that I have tabbed out accurately and set up in wordpad files to fit a page) and upload them to this site.

It’s been a ton of work and what I want to do is post these songs on my site for others to download for free – ready to print. As a bonus, I’ve specifically chosen songs that are relatively easy to play on guitar.

I will let you know when it’s up!
