  1. Dear all, It has been a while that I have visited this forum. I have been very busy with my studies—having completed my BA in Musicology and currently finalising my MA in Applied Musicology. I did keep on working on my singing, however. Yesterday, “The Music of the Night,” a song that I auditioned with at the Conservatory of Rotterdam over a decade ago and that I had used for my singing lessons with many different teachers, was one I had never actually performed—until now! Indeed, there appears to be balancing issues with volume between me and the piano. On the other hand, I asked several attendees whether they felt there were problems with it, but they all did not notice them live. While I do think we could work on balancing our instruments, I believe the recording is augmenting the issue quite a bit. I am really satisfied with the performance—especially my acting abilities, intonation, enunciation, and stage presence. I could be more confident with the fermata notes just doing them as long as I want, rather than thinking I might do them too long (I think the “soul”-note [2:32] is great, the “be”-note [3:44] is just about right, the ”night”-note [5:20] is executed pretty well, but could easily be five seconds longer). I could also definitely stabilise and pronounce my “ring” more. Manolito Mystiq
  2. Hello! So I just recorded 2 tunes (first takes, lots of mistakes, but i just wanted to record something) Im looking to sing with my band and would like to know if im on the right track (since this is a type of register i've never used in a live/public setting so i dont know if the vocal placement for these songs is correct). These songs are somewhat outside my singing comfort zone and what we usually play (in terms of vocal range and registers), but i would love to expand my repertoire. To give an idea my most demanding song right now is toxicity (SOAD)(with some chest pulling here and there). I've been a musician for 11 years but only been singing for 5 years now, and only had proper vocal training for about a year (not currently) mostly focusing on pitch, correct breathing, chesty high notes, etc... but nothing of this kind, so there is this desire to get into these types of songs. Also, the "technique" im using for both songs feels (in my throat) the same to me, but it somehow feels more suited for the high notes heard in the scorpions tune, than in the skid row one. so I would love to know (if someone can give some input on this) why do i get two seemingly different results with the same technique? Feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you Jesse
  3. Hi Folks, This is a song that I have wanted to sing for a very long time. This is as you all know, an incredibly difficult song on the passagio. I don't think I sound anything like Steve, so it makes it way more difficult for me. It is a bit of a Mount Everest for me this song This is a work in progress version. There are some pitching issues, please ignore. I am curious to hear what you think about my tone in the chorus Thanks to anyone who can drop in a few words

  5. Hey! I decided to come back here after really long time. Some of You may remember me from my duet videos, but life is life and I'm trying to do something on my own now for some time. Could I get any feedback? Any criticism? This video is a bit old but I think it's one of the songs I feel most comfortable with If someone like it or think that it's worth it I would really appreciate subscribtion on my channel, it means a lot Cheers, hope to stay here for longer period then last time!
  6. Hi Folks, It has been a very long time since I posted. I have made some jumps in my technical skills and so thought I should post a song again. This actually I did about 2.5 years ago. Unfortunately I don't have the older recording to do a Before-After comparison. but the old version was around the time when I started to learn to bridge but had still not learnt how to smoothly connect to the chest voice. I had lot of issues then with nasality and "Quacky" sound. I think since then I have addressed some of them. One thing that I would like to share in my experience is how important it is for us singers to keep pushing the boundaries every single time. When you become better in singing, it reflects not only in your ability to do tough songs at an acceptable level, but it really improves the way you can sing "simpler" songs..
  7. Well there I was again; singing scales as you do. But today and a bit of yesterday my voice cracked when singing at this range; I can normaly sing these notes in my head vocie with out a problem but just now I can not! Anyone know what has caused my voice to start cracking? https://app.box.com/s/ukl64k9kxnsqrxfwuu4oq7vtfmpb5ubb Thanks 2CIADB
  8. Hello Modern Vocalist World! I just wanna thank Robert Lunte for his labor - the secret is revealed. For I was searching, trying, doubting... And finally TVS. So practical, exact explanations, awesome! Here I am singing and playing on this video: Vinni
  9. https://app.box.com/s/hipoe5h4ahmj0f3f2n58hvkgkmy4du15 Here's a clip of me singing the chorus to "Lay Me Down" by Sam Smith. The highest note I'm hitting is an A4 (I'm singing it a half step higher than the original). As a comparison, here's a guy singing it on "The Voice": https://youtu.be/zAaVoMLblDY?t=34s To me, his sound is so much meatier and much more chesty. To me, my voice sounds like Barry Gibb from the Bee Gees or an Axl Rose. Nothing wrong with either of them, but not the effect I'm going for. Basically, my question is: If I continue to do meowing exercises / sirens / slides, will my tone eventually darken? Or am I doing something completely wrong to generate this tone? Other sub questions: Should I be enunciating these vowels more with the "ng" sound to try to resonate it more in my nose? Or should it feel more like a "ha" sound to try to bring up my chest more into the mix? Lastly, here's another sample of me singing high notes with a more "bottom to top" approach up to G4 (Wise men(G4) say..). My problem is, I feel like I'm definitely "pulling up" my chest voice to hit the G4 with that tone is pitchy and strained. The A4 I'm hitting in Lay Me Down doesn't strain me at all but it doesn't have the same timbre quality as this G4.

  11. 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
  12. Hey, I'm completely new to this forum and I would look to expand my range and my voice's ability. At the moment I am trying to sing 'Miss You' which is a J pop song by AAA. I'm having some trouble as the males singers of AAA seem to sing so high. The thing that makes me confused is that they do it with absolutely no strain and can do it live comfortably. Have they just got really high voices naturally or is it a strengthened falsetto they are singing it in? If it is then how do they have so much control over it? I'm worried about pushing my voice to hard and damaging it. Another thing to note is that my voice finished breaking about 3 months ago and I am getting better but still don't have complete control. Thank you I appreciate any comments!
  13. 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.
  14. Hey new to the forum here. I am a developing singer(male baritone) and I have noticed how much a stuffy or half-stuffy/runny nose can impact my range. It is nearly impossible for me to get into my mask/nasal resonance when my nostrils are somewhat swollen due to cold weather. My chest voice would sound almost normal, but as I start to place the air into my nasal region, that stuffiness somewhat pushes the air back down, making me push more air through the chest, thus making it very easy to have unpredictable breaks in the voice as opposed to a day when my nose is clear. Ive had this almost all my life and it actually made me talk more out of my mouth with strain during normal conversation. I was wondering if anyone here had procedures done to reduce the size of the turbinates in your nose(removing parts of the membrane or bone) so the passageway is much wider at all times, or if there is another permanant solution? And if anyone had this surgery, how much did it change your singing voice? Thanks!
  15. 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
  16. Been working hard on getting my mixes better. This one took about a week. Good learning experience. Not perfect but im somewhat proud of it Approximately 80 tracks involved Its going to be a fairly low quality upload because its an MP3 to start with and then uploaded to an MP3 site On The Inside, scratch full mix #1 EDIT: Rebalanced mix, much better On the Inside, rebalanced mix#1 Enjoy, JJ
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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?
  20.

That's all I gonna waiting for your answers Listo.mp3
  21. My favorite song from this great band, has a certain "epic" feel to it, some nice technical details with dynamics on head voice and some more aggressive content on the high range. Everyone that can listen and/or drop me a line about it, thank you! \m/
  22. I doubt that this has anything to do with training the voice but there is the possibility. I am a small skinny guy 130 pounds tops all my life. I have not been training aggressively but using more support more twang and cord closure. The issue is this, I have noticed that the soft tissue around my neck is swollen, also under my armpits. Normally my armpits are concave and there was a dip between the collar bones and sides of my neck. These areas are now puffy and convex. Earlier in life while working out with shoulder shrugs(holding weights) and other exercises meant to strengthen the neck and shoulder muscles this also happened. That was expected and looked for. Can just using more aggressive singing and stronger support cause these issues?
  23. This is for my other technique post e.g. asking if this example is mix voice. Please don't critique unless you are looking to answer the question. I tried to keep the high notes from 'releasing', because I think that a rounded mix represents how it would work with legato, where as a released sounding mix may not work in legato phrasing. Sound-clip is amplified to 0db by default. https://soundcloud.com/eisacurry/mix-test/s-DhlV8
