Merritt Male singers: What's your highest note ? (34) RE: Male singers: What's your highest note ? 14 Jun 17

+1 most men sing in the baritone range

This is anecdotal to male singers in my part of the Upper Midwest, USA - not based on a random singer sample - but our lakes district has a lot of resorts, restaurants, bars and such that like to feature live music. I get out and perform but also routinely catch others' performances. I'd say,

~ in full voice that most have a high note in the Eb-F above middle C (on the piano) range
~ as noted (har-har) above, I can currently hit the G above middle C but find it's rare to hear a guy hit a note that high
~ I know 3 musicians out of dozens around here who can sing above the G. One seems to top out in Bb-B range; he has a beautiful tone and feel to his voice; I try to catch his gigs whenever possible and am always trying to drag him into fundraisers for various causes. Another, who seems most comfortable singing south of middle C, surprises me now and then hitting a clear, full voice G or A; he's like a stealth high tenor. The third guy gets easily into a full octave and more above middle C - I'd have to grab him on a break and have him run the scale, but I'm guessing like E4-F4 in full voice - but his vocal quality is kind of nasal and harsh.

Again, just from my limited experience in my geographic area.
