I'm sure you CAN do it, Rube. I CAN do it. I've sung the anthem six times at high school games in Colorado and California. Why? Because the recording of the anthem they had was unavailable. Otherwise, why would they ask my croaking ass to sing it? Three things about the anthem. No, four. Here goes. 1 start as low as you can possibly start. So low that you can barely be heard. Hold the mic close so it's audible. This is crucial unless you know you can handle the rise. It beats most voices when you get to "rockets red glare" if you start too high. 2 start fast. The pace slows as it goes so if you start "Oooooooh saaaaay caaaan you seeeeee...", you'll end singing 'The National Funeral Dirge' ... Which is the mistake 90% of the supposed pros make. 3 make your version about the song. Don't make it about you. Without question, this the #1 fuckup the pros make. They want everyone to be impressed by their amazing voice. That's arrogance, and it contradicts the words, which celebrate the men who held the fort against the English. 4 finally, advancing the third point, sing the 4th verse. After all these years, when people here, 'Oh say can you...", folks mentally turn off their brains. But if you sing, "So thus be it ever when free men shall stand..." people STFU and listen. Then they'll hear the best verse in the song. Look it up. It really is. It's not about protecting a soldier's battlements; it's about walking out of your front door & invading troops are there to take you out. It's personal. It's conclusive. And it works. So, now YOU TOO can sing the anthem. You can be better than whatever tranny minority who takes the stage at a baseball game and ruins the Star Speckled Banana with their auto tuned shit voice.
