Hi Ron, don't think you were alone in the "losing voice chorus". I was shocked that I could even hold a tune by Sunday night, so I figured well, I didn't completely lose it this song I'll try to kill it on the next one. I noticed that the Shellbacks did keep singing though out the whole time & they only seemed to get better. By Monday I could barely talk.
