    • Robert your confidence and speaking skills shine through in this webinar.  Draven you did good too but Robert you really stole the cake on this one.  I forgot that musculature support is a part of support and works in conjunction with breath support I'll be sure to keep that in mind when I'm practicing next time.
    • What’s the difference between vocal bass and pitch? 
    • Try to make the audio smoother if that makes sense like you the nice intramental and then your voice which is a bit jarring. Also, the line "I hate you" at the into is a bit jarring to the first into. But other than that good job!
    • I think that this is pretty cool. Maybe try opening your mouth a little more because you seemed a bit tight-lipped and make the s more pronounced and crisper. I think the higher notes could use some work but other than that sounded good. 
    • I think you should try a song with less vocal pitches and something with more bass. Try city of stars by ryan gosling with a few vocal warmups
    • Vision of Love Cover : Mariah Carey https://www.smule.com/p/673583845_1700121606 Love Yourself Cover : Justin Bieber https://www.smule.com/p/498920152_1668525932   I really need help trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong vocally or is it just my tone? I need honesty. Thank u! 
    • I've gotten really good at pulling chest but I think for long term success I'll need to find a neutral position to sing in and eliminate strain.  So my question for you guys is how do you make sure you can put in the right amount of effort to keep the breath flowing and not have the throat clinch up.  What I've been doing to practice this is not pushing myself at all just trying to breathe and remain neutral and let the tone and the notes come, if they don't come I either go falsetto or change the note of the song I'm singing.  I still feel like strain and reliance on the throat can creep in though maybe not enough to cause hoarseness but probably enough that it's not allowing the breath to support the cords and limiting my voice to one certain timbre and volume.  I think having a breathy tone is a better starting point than having a solid tone because at least then you know the breath is flowing and from there you can work into a solid tone to keep stamina reserved.  Just a little discussion on the topic of strain and remaining neutral I feel will be good.
    • Hi all. 

      I bought The four pillars program way back in 2014... 
      Since then I really haven't practiced it, largely because I haven't had time. I still have yet to use the online lessons I purchased with Robert when I bought it. (been holding out until I had more time and some basic practice in).
      I did do a stint of singing lessons with a one on one trainer at Long and Mcquade here in Alberta. I learnt some things. But largely, I learnt that I too can just play the lessons she was playing from her phone and sing downloaded songs from itunes. It is much cheaper to just do it on my own. I think part of the problem was that she seemed to largely be "phoning it in" (not really trying hard at her job). I already owned the singing course she was using, and she didn't really offer me much than be an extra ear. It was beneficial to have the steady schedule though. 

      I am trying to get back into it (singing).
      I have an older (I am assuming) edition of 4pillars.
      Just curious where people recommend starting off?

      Also, I am open to suggestions for songs/singers for me to practice with. 
      I prefer songs that - hmm, how to put this - actually involve singing. Being a male, a male singer would be better. But I do tend to sing along to female vocals, largely because they tend to hold notes more and make it sound more like singing, and less like talking with tone.

      My personal preference is Marianas Trench. For example Desperate Measures
      I enjoy singing similar to Josh Ramsey, Justin Timberlake, Jacob Hoggard, etc. 

      Any recommendations?

      As a side note... I find that Josh tends to sing right at my bridge. I have to constantly flip into falsetto, while he clearly sings in his (head?) voice without kicking into falsetto much. Those rough but high notes. Any recommendations to raise my "rough but high note range" without kicking into falsetto?

      Any views on adding timbre to vocals? I find that in the process of trying to match timbre I end up creating my own and it sounds quite different... 
    • I made a short clip about it. This is just on my cell phone. No special EQ or something like that. Was a little bit too close to the phone so excuse the plosive puffs. https://app.box.com/s/i2sb1pcz3u4irg6nz9cxwinini0uw72l The key vowel you can train this sound on is /OE/ as the 'e' in the word 'herb' Of course the EQ'ing also takes part in his special sound. I also think that the fact that he is a lower voiced guy is involved too. Fabio Lione would probably not be able to get the same sound color, no matter how hard he tries.
    • Well stated... adding the vocal mass is the part that I think they often get lost. SLS teachers generally are not the "add vocal mass" and the motor skills required to do it, go to guys.
