dorareever Exactly what's a true contralto? (67* d) RE: Exactly what's a true contralto? 07 Nov 02

If I just look overall range I'm everything (?!),I mean soprano-mezzo-alto,but my upper range really sucks,though is there.(Want to work on it,but slowly,because I don't want to ruin my voice of course).The highest note I can hit is D6,but can't hold it or anything.It's high whiny bad headvoice (good headvoice is okay,but I don't have one it seems.)I'm comfortable singing F3-F5,so I guess I'm an alto.I'm sure I sang even lower once or twice,like E3,but that was the flu! ;)
Looking at this thing,maybe I'm not so bad,since I'm there with professional singers,it's flattering.
I just have this problem from F5 to D6,where my voice breaks (G5 I guess),and I do this stupid squeaky sound,though I can still reach it,and I'm working on reaching it in a better way.

Thanks a lot for the link!
