    • When To Bridge From Chest to Head Voice?
      By Robert Lunte · Posted
      @Felipe Carvalho Nice video Felipe... 2:17 ... good point... when we see or hear about the "pingy" "Ah"... people need to understand that this vowel also modifies or needs to.  Really fundamental point your making that is a good lesson is... the speaking voice and its vowels are different then singing voice and vowels. I also like your technique for relaxing the jaw. Are we on the same cosmic path of thought?  I just published this video that makes the same point... nice video Felipe and thanks for your contribution.

      @Dan,... ok... great.  Well then, do you have a perspective on the TVS Edging vowels vs the SLS 'nay, nay, nays"?

      You are probably referring to sympathetic vibrations (vibration of tissue/bones outside the vocal tract) and not real resonance (in the sense of amplification). Sympathetic Vibrations (which are probably the acutal origin of the terms chest/head voice) are indeed just pitch related and have hardly anything to do with vocal technique. "Resonance" is actual a wrong term for those vibrations because the definition of resonance implies that the sound is amplified. The F1 however is a real amplifier and its amplification power is close to the amplification power of the twang mechanism. F2 is also a strong amplifier but it is only accessable on certain pitches and certain vowels. F1 is automatically active in modal voice below something like G#3, which is also the reason why people that can only sing in a quiet M1 have a break in the region between G3 and C4. That break can often be removed easily by just singing louder because most people intuitively use the shouting mechanism to sing louder, which will raise the pitch of F1. This is basically CVT Overdrive mode. On higher pitches the larynx has to rise more and more which decreases the space in the vocal tract. That also means that the pressure rises within the vocal tract and chances are that the vocal tract is "blown out of shape" by the strong air pressure or the epiglottis (the twanger) being blown open on higher notes. This is what makes control in Overdrive so hard on higher pitches. It actually requires strength in the twanger and strength in the muscles that keep your vocal tract in place to do Overdrive on higher pitches. And of course there is the hard limit when your larynx basically slams under your chin.

      The answer to the the original question lies in the vowel and intensity you are singing at.  Singing softer half voice depending on the vowel the shifts will happen earlier and same with singing fullout depending on the vowel it's going to be slightly different notes

    • solfege a song
      By Jeremy · Posted
      This is a fairly complicated task if you are not already accustomed to reading music/understanding how solfege translates to the intervals of a song in relation to it's key signature.  What you will need to do is find sheet music for the vocal melody of "Home" and assign your solfege to each pitch/interval given in the song.  For example, any "C" located in the melody will be sung as "Do", any "D" in the melody will be sung as "Re", any "E" in the melody will be sung as "Mi."  This will repeat like this for the entire song so: Solfege in C major C = Do  D = Re E = Mi F = Fa G = So A = La B = Ti C = Do (same as the first C) So, going by the melody written here: http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtd.asp?ppn=MN0104414 The notes in the melody of the first verse are: C, C, C, C, A, G, G  (Hoooold oooonn, to me as we go.)  However, since we are replacing it with solfege you would instead replace these words with their relative solfege based on the lyric each pitch occurs on.  So E.G. you'd sing it like this: "Do dooooooooooo, do do la so so"  I hope this helps you a bit and is not completely useless, good luck.
