I am trying to play the guitar together with the bass drum and Hi-hat, has a nice, full, stripped-down sound, and the singing is the last thing i can add to it.

I developed my reasonable voice from nothing, through many hours playing guitar and singing.

Just wondering if there is any good articles, tips, downloads (torrents) online?
Unlike drumming, I think voice lessons need to happen in person with a qualified teacher. They need to hear what you're doing and possibly see what you're doing too. There's something that happens when everything is 3D in person. At least that's what I learned when I took voice lessons years ago. You're utilizing muscles that aren't easily seen (like your hands and wrists for drumming are) and only in person do I think a teacher could spot what you may be doing wrong. Definitely check out a teacher - you may be doing damage.
