Excuse be, I hab a code.
I mean excuse me, I have a cold. Consistent with every other cold I’ve ever had, my voice has a much lower range than when I am healthy. Under normal circumstances, the lowest note I can hit with my voice is, according to this scale, F[sub]1[/sub] (43.65 Hz). This morning, I was reliably hitting B[sub]0[/sub]-flat (29.14 Hz).
-Why am I able to hit lower notes just after waking than during pretty much any other time of day?
-Why does a cold enable me to hit lower notes than usual?
-What determines the lowest note a person’s vocal cords can reach before quality/volume falls off a cliff?
