  1. Hi, I'm a long time lurker on this forum, but an infrequent poster/contributor. To avoid making this thread unnecessarily long, I will describe my problem shortly. Basically, my voice tends to be way too bright. Particularly on the 'a' vowel, as in 'at'. A teacher I greatly respect once said that I was a dramatic tenor(for what it's worth, I know most of you don't bother with the fach system). But anyway, I'm more into darker voices now, like Hozier(in particular) and James Blake. I was wondering if there are any healthy ways to darken my voice, or at least get rid of that excessive brightness/twang/buzz. basically, I'm not trying to sound like somebody else, but I want to do something about that unwanted sound in my voice, if it's possible. Any help would be appreciated. I'm also a little bit into classical singing, and try to incorporate a classical sounding voice into my own music, sometimes.
  2. Hello guys! I am just curious about this singer's voice and volume when he sings. I notice it is very airy and I know singing with excessive air is bad for your chords, but is there something about his technique or voice that allowed him to sing so long with a healthy voice? (10+ years) I also get very confused on how loud to sing when singing such songs. I guess it is a common problem in a sense when I sing very softly, I can reach those notes easily with my head voice with very little chord closure. OR I end up singing so loud where its basically belting with full chord closure. I can't for the life of me hit that middle area where there is JUST enough power while maintaining such a sweet tone without POWERING IT OUT. ( I am referring to the chorus) Any ideas? Thank you!
  3. Hi everybody, I'm an amateur singer, and soon I'm going to move out to a new place that will force me to sing and practice only at mornings. (I'm used to do that at night) The problem is when I wake up I have a terrible "morning voice" for a few hours, maybe even half a day. This morning voice is making my lows very shaky and unstable, and cuts my high range by whole octaves, making my voice crack or choke. And in general it makes my voice feel very stiff. I've tried drinking hot tea and doing warmup exercises, but nothing seems to help. Any help on how to solve this issue? Thank you
  4. Hey there I have been a musician for a long time, but I have always struggled with singing and its never come naturally to me. I have only been practicing singing solidly for six months now and I have definitely improved, but I have no idea if I am any good. anyways here is a little clip of me singing. I would appreciate feedback. I sent it to my brother and he said it was good, but that when I go higher in pitch it doesn't sound as good. I would appreciate if you agree with his point and how to fix it. P.s i have paid thank you, Ben Jones.
  5. What is bad in my voice? Ive been singing for a year and a half and still cant say whether my voice is good or bad.
  6. Hello! When I was around 12, I was pushing my voice quite hard. I had choir, vocal lesson, and practiced as much as I possibly could. I was singing classical and Broadway songs ( "Per la gloria d'adorarvi" or "Who will buy" as a couple examples). I had the odd fascination of "how high of notes can I hit?" I don't believe I was ever overly reckless, but Lo and behold, my voice started feeling strained and tight, and I had to work harder and harder to produce sound. Eventually, there was no sound with the exception of a breathy whisper. After a few weeks of this, I went to have my voice looked at at the ENT, and they couldn't see much of anything, except redness and slight swelling. There was no certain diagnoses. Finally, around six months after me first losing my voice, I could speak fine, and sort of sing. It has been a few years since. My chest voice is still weak and shaky, and it cracks, breaks, and will occasionally leave me without a voice for a couple days. I miss singing though, and more specifically, I miss singing well. I don't know what to do. Could I have just badly strained my vocal cords? Would it have caused that much damage? Could that happen again? Should I try vocal therapy? I have no clue where to begin, or if I should just accept this and move on. Thank you for any help you can give me!
  7. Hey everyone, I'm a bass singer with no vocal training, tell me what you think about my voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdn26dOERYs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVL5mCKh5WA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFn3Pmui6lk What are some tips you can give me to further improve my low notes, breathing exercises, etc. Thanks, Lyndon

  9. I have been trying to work on developing a mixed voice but all I ever get is this weird brass sounding tone once I get past the bridge. Can someone tell me if I'm in mix? Do I need to just keep practicing and it will get strong and sound more like chest? MumRecording.m4a
  10. Does professional and the vibrant and pleasant vocal tones develop over a long time? I am not currently satisfied with my range and tone especially and I want to be able to develop more and more. How is he able to manipulate his tone so well comparing the first two videos and third video? It's almost as if he's two different singers.. Personal questions: I have been singing for a while now but only recently throughout 2016 I have "Properly practiced" getting rid of my bad habits, fixing tone, pitch, etc. 1. Is it normal that after I started to do so, my range increased VERY FAST. In a span of 4-6 months, I am able now to reach the notes he is singing that otherwise BEFORE I would just choke and sound like I am shouting. Just curious because I am worried I might be destroying my voice by pushing it too hard. There are times before I damaged my voice by improper technique which I guess somehow made my voice range increase as a short cut? is that even possible? I tend to just go all out when I sing right after doing my workouts. Example song I practice is the first video I post below.. ( I am currently using Ken Tamplin's workouts, if that is helpful in any way). ONE IMPORTANT thing to note is that as I go up in pitch and shed my weight, It feels like the TONE of my voice gets higher as well. It's like I sound chesty in the lower ranges then suddenly like little kid in the higher ranges. I also tend to MIMIC singers for a long time... sadly.. is it normal that I am mimicing their style in every different singer? I feel like it doesn't sound "right" if I don't sing with their TONE. 2. As I go higher in pitch, is it normal to feel like something in my mask/palate area to NARROW DOWN? It feels like my mask area is flexing and my chords are very tightly closing. IT ISN'T PAINFUL. Or is this improper technique? Am I suppose to feel COMPLETELY OPEN? When I try to keep it completely open it feels like my voice goes SPLAT and airy and it hurts. Sometimes I feel like I am overwhelmed wondering if I am singing right or am I singing improperly even following his lessons and achieving growth. Anyways heres, the singer. How is his technique? It'll be awesome if there are some veterans or experienced singers to guide a newbie like myself to achieve this versatility in terms of programs and what I need to do. How does everyone here see Ken Tamplin's program?... Thank you!!
  11. From an Aussie TV show in the early 90's... Enjoy! A couple of my favourite voices.
  12. I've been having throatiness problems recently. Like, it hurts and I find myself pushing sometimes, when I sing in head voice, or belt too high. It used to not hurt, even when I sing at the end of my range. But now it's hurting. It might be from doing too much vocal slides. Because I've been doing that a lot recently. I used to do it a lot before too. Back then when I started doing it, I started having throat problems too, and I just assumed vocal slides were causing it and I just stopped. And I returned to normal. Also when I went to voice lesson and warmed up, I didn't do any vocal slides and it didn't hurt to sing at the end of my range. But when I went to practice my head voice at home, I did vocal slides, and my voice started hurting again. Any advice on how to cure this? Thanks.
  13. I hear a lot of singers/teachers on this forum and others talk how they are basses. So I would like to show what a bass really sounds like that is all
  14. I want to improve my belting range. So far, the highest I can belt is up to an F#5. But I have sometimes belted up to a G5 before. Anyways, I want to improve my belting range, and I want to practice it, by singing songs that are like, at the end of my belt range. So if you guys know of any songs, that have E5-F#5 belts, feel free to comment them!
  15. I can reliably phonate F2, my lowest ever was probably a C2. At that point it was not loud at all and not really effective when singing. Should the quality of lower notes be a better indicator of voice type than high notes? The other day my vocal teacher commented I was a tenor, based on my speaking voice (not quite sure I agree with using that method to classify voice type). Nevertheless, it got me thinking. When shifting pitches, sliding or stepping down below A2 is pretty difficult for me, in that I lose a lot of volume. So, would you say that, based on my lack of power in lower chest, I would classically be called a tenor?
  16. How you see i go to the Bb2 to the D5 at least, but it's connected my register? I leave the link below link: Test Sound
  17. Heres a video I did addressing how some vowels work better for others and vice versa.
  18. Hi there! It has been requested that I move the said article to the article posts page. Thank you!
  19. Really hard song to do lol, tried my absolute best to pull it off because I do like it a lot. Thanks in advance. http://picosong.com/a5Xb/
  20. Hi, What's the best training courses that will help with this genre? I'm a male and really like the sounds of Josh Ritter, Joey Ryan (from Milk Carton Kids linked below), Civil Wars etc. Is this a lot to do with resonance? Not sure how 'vocally trained' some of these artists are (vs just kind of naturally sing well with a unique resonance). My voice in general doesn't seem like it has a lot of character/thinner, but I'm wondering if this can be worked on.
  21. Let's see if we can get some fathers misty eyed hahahaha... really beautiful tune with great lyrics and most importantly for me, very easy in my range. Enjoy http://picosong.com/DzJh/
  22. Dear All, I recently did a cover of I Will by The Beatles, with the attached Soundcloud link as follows: Your comments and review are absolutely appreciated. Thanks all! Regards sincerely, Tim
  23. Dear all, I am new to this forum. My name is Timothy Christian Liu, and I am an intermediate singer who is working to be an aspiring vocalist. My genre includes folk, acoustic, and a bit of pop, although I went through a bit of classically-based training for a little while. I am glad to have found this forum and encounter a ton of talented singers here, where hopefully we can share and learn from each other. I recently did a few covers of these songs, just for your listening: Here, There And Everywhere (The Beatles) Cover - The Most Recent One I Will (The Beatles) Cover Cake By The Ocean (DNCE) Cover All I Have To Do Is Dream (The Everly Brothers) Cover Time Of Your Life (Green Day) Cover I recorded all the guitars and vocals (lead and backing) on my own. Granted, some of these recordings are done quite a while back when I have not learned to get the best recordings from my mic, so apologies for that. I hope you all enjoy it and comments and feedback are absolutely appreciated! Regards and God bless always, Tim
  24. I've been training with the foundation building routine religiously for the past week and I'm phonating really great sirens with Embuchore and larynx dampening. But during the sirens there seems to be two routes my voice can take as it rises in frequency. One route is into an airy falsetto, the other is a more stable chesty/twangy sound that I'm now able to carry up to b#4. My question is which route do I take? Am I pulling chest? Is that bad?
