When I was a kid (8-13 maybe? its been awhile) I took lessons from a local lady, she was a vocal/choir instructor, so I also did choir and small groups.

sidenote, I think the choir went to Nationals shortly after I quit

I learned on my own mostly. I have a friend that took lessons to sing opera and he taught me all kinds of things. But my voice hadnt matured until I was in my twenties. Now that I'm in my late 40's, it's difficult to sing like I used to.

Learned on my own, just sort of singing along with records the last few years. Recently I started to combine my playing and singing with easier songs like Hangar 18(I play the high harmony during the verses which is like 4 notes) and more recently I've been slowly getting Master of Puppets down. I can sing the verses it just throws off my timing sometimes.

EDIT: almost forgot,

congrats dude! use them to your advantage man :D

Start breathing from your diaphragm. And learn to raise your soft palette. learn to sing like your constantly about to yawn and that pretty much what you should be doing (exaggeratedly)
GIYF Google is your Friend

Edit:
There's alot of good stuff here.
I'm still a rookie vocalist my self so yea just tossing out what I know...

Well I survived my first lesson!! I found out I have 2 octaves that I am able to sing. She has a goal for 5 octaves and for me to memorize 50-100 songs over time that I would be able to sing at the drop of a hat.

What is that?

The first lesson was about using my diaphragm correctly and the yawn technique.

I'm not sure what the soft palette is or how it works, but you can feel your soft pallet raise when you yawn

I think, I may be wrong.
