    I can't believe I sang some songs in the bands I was in.

    Officially I'm a baritone. That's been my part since I resumed choral singing in 1997 after a nearly 15-year hiatus.

    But in a pinch, I've sung everything from first tenor to second bass.

    I sang in choir in high school. I always always got the bass because nobody else could sing it (small town). I'm a solid baritone/bass, though I couldn't tell you which note is my lowest nor highest. I sing a mean "War Pigs" in my falsetto.

    I'm a lyric baritone (for opera folks, Almaviva in Figaro and Malatesta in Don Pasquale were right in my comfort zone). And like most baritones I have a pretty decent falsetto which helps singing choir tenor parts since the bass part usually sits a bit low.

    I can do a little Lou Gramm from Foreigner or Steve Walsh from Kansas. What ever they are. :)

    Bass. I was useful in a band for backup vocals once. As in one song.

    On the caliber of Keith Richards or Dave Davies, i.e. Horrible for me.

    Don't like my voice, there are some songs I can sing where it just fits perfectly, like America's Tin Man or Ventura Highway. But most of the time I get no satisfaction from singing.

    A pinch singer can sing everything from first tenor to second bass.

    A pinch hitter can play everything from left field to second base.

    I'd have to guess that I've got a baritenor range. It's most effortless for me to utilize my lower range, but on a good day (i.e. one I'm not beset upon by wicked allergies) I can get pretty far up there and have a healthy falsetto.

    Haha. I WISH!

    Though, I suppose I can nail his '80s "gruff" voice when in good form. I really love singing "The Golden Boy" off of Barcelona given the chance (not Montserrat Caballe's parts, mind you ;)).

  19. Baritone (including a 10 year stint in the Kansas City Symphony Chorus), but often cajoled into singing 2nd tenor, and of course plenty of bass too.

    Started singing as a boy soprano when I was about 11 or 12, then studied privately in high-school. Bigger part of my life several years ago, but still sing in a top notch church choir.

    Don't know classifications too well but I can hit the first G note on the high E string on the guitar pretty easily and the A on the 5th fret, high E string on a good day. Guess that would be the first G above middle C on a piano.

    Tenor. Or so I've been told by choir directors a couple of times. I don't think my range is super awesome.

    I sing bass in our community chorus, though my range is more in line with baritone. I prefer singing the bass part as the note is often the anchor to the chord.
