What's your vocal range?:

I can just barely hit the same high F that Brian Wilson sings on the fadeout of "Fun Fun Fun", and the lowest I can hit with any sort of volume is the F below Middle C.

From bad to worse.
no one will notice that I changed this
probably drunk again
about 2 and a half octaves, plus an octave of falsetto

To clarify, I can just barely hit the high B in the Journey song Lights - "oo I wanna be theh-eh-eh-re"

The range I can stay in the best is baritone. And yes, you're remembering correctly, I'm female.

I can go from the A below middle C to the 2nd F above middle C. And only barely.

E1 through to about E3. I think I lost some notes if anyone's seen them about.

Unfortunately I have really nasal voice, so I can't really sing at all. I think my range is probably just an octave, and that's depending on where I've been kicked.

Honestly don't know, really. I've never tried singing any scales.

I have a crazy range, but my voice isn't good, so I can't actually sing. I can do crazy shit with my voice, like accents, barney voices, and other retarded voices and sounds that shouldn't be able to be done after puberty.

I am vexed!
Shit.

But seriously. I think I have something around two octaves, my lowest point being the low E on a standard-tuned guitar. Whatever that counts as.
The Prodigal Returns
I can go from bass to a falsetto. Both extremes tend to sound rather ridiculous from me, though.

Standard choral Tenor range - just under two octaves, from the C an octave below middle C to the A above middle C (C3 to A4). Plus (comfortable) falsetto an extra 5th, up to the E5.

Baritone, kinda. But I was able to get through “Caroline, No” the last time I tried, including the high notes, so maybe I ought to try to develop the higher end of my range.

About F2 going two octaves up. I can get some decent oomph in the lower range but sound like shit trying to go too high.
Because I choose to.

Feels Good, Man
I'm pretty much a typical Bass Baritone. My falsetto sucks, though.
Well, I'm sort of a baritone, I guess. I can go pretty low (a la Chef of South Park), and pretty high as well. I'm developing my falsetto for Metal screaming

what
Kind of a Baritone, normally. I'm not sure of the exact range though.

C2-G4, pretty much. I should have a decently usable G soon, anyway. Warmups I can get up to an A.

Street Writing Man
Somewhere between Willie Nelson and that obnoxious guy who just refuses to get off the karaoke machine. Usually, closer to the latter. I love singing but I suck mightily at it.
If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed.

I love singing, and am good on certain songs, but I have no idea about any of the technical terminology relating to it.

I can do Johnny Cash, and I can do Robert Plant. Most things in between I can make at least a passable attempt at, and I can turn pretty much anything by Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers, System of a Down or Billy Idol into Crowning Music of Awesome. So I consider myself to have a good vocal range, but am clueless about what notes I'm hitting exactly.

Alto, but I can cover most Aya Hirano and Nana Mizuki songs.

High baritone, pretty much, but I tend to stick to my lower range because my upper range is rubbish.
Insert vaguely inspirational quote here.

Reverse the Curse
Contralto. Basically just sang with the guys in vocal music. I can get out my guitar to check the precise limits if you're interested, but I think it's something like two octaves between about D# below middle C and... y'know that note in Der Hölle Rache when you say the word 'kocht'? Right about there.

Soprano, but sometimes accidently slip into mezzo-soprano. I could probably go into whistle register with proper coaching.
