    You can use this video to check your vocal range, but it only goes down to E2 so low basses like myself will have to find another way. Note anyone measuring in guitar pro be careful, it says the it is one octave out.

    My range is from D2 to A5 (thats drop D to the 5th fret on the 5th string)
    One of my friends swears that he can get A1 and G1 on a good day, but he has an incredible voice.

    Give it a shot.

    D2 - chest
    A5 - chest
    C7 - fry

    If you search youtube for vocal fry, you get some hilarious results.

    In fairness, I can probably only hit C6 on a good day. A5 is probably my normal limit.

    G2-E5 - chest voice (I think?)
    I can get higher than that, but I can't really control my falsetto.
    I don't really know these vocal terms so I probably don't know what I'm talking about.

    It depends where you are most comfortable. You might have that range overall (mine is similar), but I would not choose to sing too high and some of the low notes are a real strain. Pick your best octave and a bit, then work it out from there.

    Video didn't go as low as I thought I could, so I checked on my piano. B2 - D6, but I'm a freak of nature. Too bad none of them sound good. Just because you can hit the notes, doesn't mean anyone wants to hear you hit them.

    This is my voice problem :lol:

    I think my vocal range is something like D#2 - D6? Not 100%, too lazy to accurately do it.
