    • If you noticed I used the words "for now". Its not needed right away, it can come later. Getting a good visualization of the sound in the mind's eye is the first step. Knowing what "TA involvement" means isn't going to help anyone since you cannot see, nor directly control those muscles; they are controlled through reproducing a sound that activates them. You then experiment with the sound.

      The nomenclature is OK to learn later on, but in the early stages its more about sound and feel; as that is what we as humans are most familiar with.
    • Hi guys I was wondering if anyone here was familiar with the Roger Kain Complete Guide to tough vocals book and CD?  I've been doing his exercises pretty much everyday for almost a year now and have noticed a big difference in my voice.  I was wondering if anyone could help me understand something a little bit more. He has an exercise which he calls the male Quiet mixed head voice, which starts in falsetto and descends on a major scale on a legato Koo sound. Halfway down the scale you switch from falsetto into your quiet natural voice. The switch then happens earlier and earlier until a certain point where you then do the whole scale in your quiet natural voice till the end. It apparently is designed to create a beautiful mix of the natural and falsetto voices.  He calls this exercise "the great problem solver" and also the most reliable way to unlock your higher register and increase your range. What I'm puzzled about is the highest note this exercise hits in natural voice is a G#4. So how could it possibly open up the notes above that?  Apparently the exercise is hundreds of years old, so those who aren't familiar with the Roger Kain book might still know what this exercise is all about. In the glossary he refers to the quiet mixed voice as messa voce. But when I've looked that term up, it seems to mean volume swelling of notes rather than what this exercise is.  Anyway, I'd love to know if anyone could shed some light on this for me! thanks Sid    
    • what is the most easiest ways to develop mixed voice..and and what do i do to get resonance,neutral larynx and breath support?..my vocal range atm is a2-g#4..and head voice goes up to f5 i strain at e4 and i carry chest up to g#4...i know its a bad technique..and im thinking of getting a coach in the future..but i want to start now  
    • Yo! All my fellow singing geeks! I came across the article I've linked here (below video).  I thought it is was very well written (a quick read), and includes a couple comments by Justin Stoney (coach most of us probably know from Youtube). I have read & posted in our "techniques" forum regarding so called "Natural Singers," percentages of the population who are or are not, training, and etc.   Hope this helps lend some clarity to the matter(s).   article - Singing Tips: Have A Certain Skull Shape, And Other Science Behind Carrying A Tune http://www.medicaldaily.com/singing-tips-have-certain-skull-shape-and-other-science-behind-carrying-tune-308372      
    • you are welcome guys!!   "I am assuming as well it is possible to belt or have a belting sound with the mixed voice as well? " exactly, you just have to use more volume and redirect the vowel to its open counterpart   think on working your mixed voice like just extending your chest/speaking voice, you have the same possibilities as when you speak in regards to lowering or raising your volume, and thats exactly how it has to feel all over your range!
