Tone Deafness

I thought maybe the problem with my singing was that I was tone deaf. Not according to this: Hearing Test Results

You correctly identified 26 tunes (out of 26) on the Distorted Tunes Test. Congratulations! You have a fine sense of pitch.

Thank you for taking the Distorted Tunes Test. More information about the the NIDCD's research into tone deafness is available from Dr. Dennis T. Drayna's web page.
So what is my problem then?

Write a Song a Day

As a personal challenge, I've been writing a song every day. Today was day five. Then I put it on youtube or Flickr. I wish I could say I sound great but I don't. I guess all those years of being in choirs didn't really stick. But I still want to be a singer. But it's kind of messing with my head. We all want to put our best selves out there but what if we don't measure up to even our own expectations? So I keep trying to squirm away from writing a song a day, which is the very reason I should keep on making them. Conquering my fears is a big part of it. Some people fear skydiving. I fear singing in public.

If you want to hear the rest of my songs, just double click on the video and it will take you to my Youtube page.
