    What do you think Trekkie?
    Short answer=yes
    If you have a basic musical aptitude (an "ear"), you can learn to play the instrument you were born with.

    I'm curious. What makes you believe you can't sing? If you can't match pitch, you need to train you ear. If you can't read music, that can be learned, as well.

    Voice lessons are mainly about learning to play the instrument you have. Breathing, posture, tone, diction, expression, and musical interpretation all figure into it. You develop an awareness of what your body is doing while singing. And you learn a certain adeptness and confidence that only comes from singing in public.

    To be honest, not everyone is gifted with a naturally beatiful voice. But I've found it pretty amazing what some people have done with what voice they've had.

    Well for one thing I have zero musical aptitude. I took piano lessons for three years as a kid, and never managed to learn to read notes OR play with both hands.

    The ear thing is a problem too. When I was in the Army I managed to destroy the hearing in my left ear (firing an M-16 and M-60 without hearing protection is BAD). Its almost completely gone.

    Between those two things I've come to the conclusion that I just can't sing. Playing a string instrument will probably be difficult too, but I want to at least try.

    Well dang... both songs are very much in my range (i used Come What May as a warm up song at one point when doing a show). Too bad I'm a million miles away on the other coast from you guys. I can sing to you when you get to Florida though
