    • I'm just stating my opinion Jon.  You have valid opinions as well.  It's a discussion, not a debate.
    • I dont even know what to say at this point.  I cant make much of a contribution to this forum if every single point I make is wholeheartedly disagreed with. Its totally pointless to go on. Its disagreement for the sake of disagreement and has nothing to do with singing or even learning.   I think im pretty much going to bow out, life is too short.   Peace out, JJ      
    • Hey, I listened to the Carola Häggkvist version as a reference. It's a pretty simple (and beautiful) melody and arrangement If you're looking for help on how to approach the song I would recommend you continue working with your teacher since they are probably the best resource, because they are familiar with the song and are physically there to hear you sing. The octave jumps you are talking about in each verse (Och tusen, att född, få lysa etc) I think would only be problematic if the notes fall outside of your comfortable range. Keep working with the song and matching the lyrics to each note, maybe with a piano- this song is melodically very straightforward with no embellishments so it should be easy for your muscle memory to pick up. You didn't indicate what your teacher or you wanted to do with it, but if it's just to sing the song as it is, plain and simple, you shouldn't have many problems with it. Edit: Can't seem to embed this https://app.box.com/s/kuhq5gxhqholffp03zrkqbz1oecvmebh I tried transposing on the fly just looking at the lyrics and listening to Carola's version to sketch the song out if it helps. With this song I guess I would recommend not overaccenting the higher notes on each octave but keep the notes at relatively the same volume regardless of how high they get by keeping a stable larynx and managing the breath. That's really all I can think of. Also singing the lines legato and connected (opposite of staccato) Forgive me if my pronunciation is sketchy in parts, my Norwegian is better than my Swedish but as we both know they share so much in common! Juletid er snart! You should upload a clip of you singing this so you can point out which parts you might want to work on or develop more, words only show so much and the audio can really provide much needed information to help you.      
    • I just finished reading the book by Tommy James called "Me, the Mob, and the Music. Boy, he really got the shaft from the Mob!  But he is great and so is his legacy of great music:  
    • You're under a misapprehension ...Not everyone can do this or knows how to figure this out, especially when you start going higher.  Some of it is counterintuitive!   No sirree Bob!  Depends on the individual.  Everybody is different..different intelligence, different psychological makeup, some are extroverted and others introverted, different upbringing.  Some singers grew up in a musical family, musical influences, with love and encouragement, others in a highly toxic environment with no encouragement, (like moi).... more like total ignorance or even jealousy! Be my guest.  I would not.    Range?  What do you think is a key contributor or allows you more range? Like I said, once I wanted to sing Foreigner and Motown (particularly Four Tops tunes), I knew I needed to find a better way.  My realization and complete acceptance of my near complete inability was a major wake up call.  The hours and hours I put into studying these guys and their modifications paid off...and they remain a challenge.              
    • Hello Bullyeya, Welcome to our community.  Where are you from? My advise would be to not say that you "absolutely have no talent". Don't do that. Because the fact is, we really don't know how much talent you have or don't have until you actually start training on a regular basis. I will tell you that the odds that you DO have talent are greater then not. That is to say that, most people have some talent or intuition for singing. The most important thing is to find a great teacher and training program and have the commitment to never quit. I'll tell you what. Contact me personally and I will workout a situation for you where you can get some great warm up routines to help you out.
