oh gosh! i've been there before!, i wouldn't be too harsh because toi don't want to fall out with her, just sort of pull faces when she's singing, like you're trying to enjoy it but subtly make it obvious that toi don't, then when she asks what's up just be like "OH..er nothing..you sound..great." but deliberately be a really bad liar, and i'm sure she'll put two and two together. :)
Tell her the following: OMFG toi sound like a group of chatons being stabbed to death PLEASE stop it! I'd rather drive scissors into my ears than listen to the sh-LOL Just kidding. Suggest some voice lessons, she'll take the hint
Ask her if she wants to be a singer when she's older, if she says yes, then tell her that in that case she should get chant lessons, to get her voice properly trained.
Ah, that's crap. I don't know. I'm not the kind of person that breaks the bad news, I'm usually the one staying all positive and optimistic, I don't like to tell people that they can't do something. *bites lip*. She's your friend right? So maybe toi should just tell her as nicely as toi can. She may be mad at you, but she may know it already, but is jealous of you. So she's got this huge ego to make herself feel better. That sounds likely.
Sorry, I don't know what else I can say, I can't think straight today. I just hope that me rambling on about this situation will give toi some ideas on what to do. :)
I have no idea, it's the same thing with my best friend. If she tries to sing just a little bit high, her voice cracks and it sounds awful..and she's a high saprano in my chorus, and she always sits suivant to me and she's so loud. So yeah, chorus is torture for me. And I have no idea how to tell my friend, she'd get pissed at me if I told her. >_>
Let me tell toi my story. I am in a group with my 3 best friends. 1. Of my Friends is a great singer. I am right under her. But then there are the other two. one who we'll call , has a very deep voice that just goes nowhere and it sounds like she is tone death but she is not. its just her voice. But she is sweet and doesn't do anything egotistical. Then there is the other girl. we'll call her T. So T has a very pitchy voice and its high and annoying. If she was like D then there wouldn't really be a problem but she told us all that she is the best singer in 704( T, D, and I are in that class and A is in 702). She also tells else that she can hit every note from high near whistle to medium. the problem is...she can't. It just doesn't sound right. So, after awhile, I got fed up with it and told her she can't sing. Straight up at the lunch table, tableau in front of everyone. We were having a chant competition between her and I just for fun but she started getting really competitive and said. See J, I'm gonna win because I sing way better then you. I can sing higher notes and my voice is just really great. A and I have talked about this problem with T before and were discussing ways to tell her but I looked in her eye And with a look that a dit "I've had it" Then turned to her and yelled not too loudly. " T. toi HAVE TO STOP WITH THIS 'IM THE BEST AND I CAN SING IT ALL GREATLY' ATTITUDE. toi CAN NOT HIT EVERY NOT toi THINK toi CAN BECAUSE toi CANT SING. toi CANT SING T. toi THINK toi CAN BUT toi CAN NOT. AND WHAT MAKES THIS EVEN WORSE IS YOUR I SING BETTER THAN toi ATTITUDE BECAUSE toi WANNA KNOW THE TRUTH, THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT SING WORSE THAN toi BUT...I. AM. NOT. ONE. OF. THEM. WE WENT THROUGH THIS IN FIFTH GRADE WHEN WE HAD THAT SERIOUS COMPETITION BETWEEN THE TWO OF US AND THREE OF OUR Friends JUDGED.AND WHO WON...TELL ME T WHO WON...OH RIGHT. IF I RECALL CORRECTLY I WON SO toi NEED TO TAKE YOUR HOPEFULLY NOW BROKEN EGO AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR A** AND TAKE SOME VOCAL LESSONS ou SOMETHING.
