Some details of my voice are: I think i'm a baritone, my lowest note is a E1 , i can go without pain to a C2 with my chest wich is the point when it's supposed that i must go to my head voice but as i don't have it, with lot of work and pain i can force to a D4 or even E4 with chest. a can reach a B4 with falsetto. I know i must not force my voice to get high notes but as i listen and play music like Queen, Beatles, Derek and the Dominos, Led Zeppelin and other similar i must learn my head voice.

Your friend is referring to the other notation: what he calls E1 is what I meant by E2, and what he calls E3 is what here is referred as E4 (what Fred sang in Hang On In There "wait...").
The notation your friend uses makes a lot of sense considering the lowest note of a bass-singer would be referred to F0, and then you count from there. In the notation I use F0 is one octave below that, in your friend`s it wouldn`t have a name (F minus 1?), but it`s because 99.99% of blokes would never get that low. Besides pro Russian contrabass singers, I think that note is restricted to pigs or toads. Maybe a polar bear too.

I don`t have samples of my voice, as far as I remember, but I can send you samples from some other (i.e. good) singers. Bo Rhap by Lennon ... frankly I had forgotten about it, I should work on it, I don`t have any way to record it anymore but at least on paper, it can be a nice experiment. Let me know your mail address to send you the voice samples

I thought this was the best thread to comment:
Last month I compiled a list for every Queen song, mentioning each one's function in choral terms. For instance, in Sail Away Sweet Sister it's something like:
Brian May - Baritone
Freddie Mercury - Tenor
Brian May - Baritone, Tenor
Roger Taylor - Sopranist
Freddie Mercury - Tenor, Alto
Some general conclusions/observations:
- As expected, almost all lead vocals by Roger & Freddie are in the tenor range, Brian's are in baritone. A notable exception is Slightly Mad.
- When singing three-part, Roger and Freddie usually were tenors (Tenor 1 & 2 in choral terms), Brian was baritone; occasionally it'd be Alto - Tenor - Baritone.
- Harmonies with an actual bass-voice are very few compared to what I'd thought
- Roger's guest appearance on Fox's 'Survivol' (1975) includes an ascending series of high notes, ending up on a high E (a tritone ABOVE the 'for me' in Bo Rhap). I don't think it's even legal to sing that high!
- Brian did sing tenor sometimes, mostly on backing vocals (Son and Daughter, Doing All Right, Father to Son), and occasionally on lead too (Who Wants to Live Forever).
