  1. Before you totally write off this article you'll have to admit: karaoke is fun! If you haven't yet had the experience of blasting out vocals to your favorite songs with your friends then you are missing one of life's greatest experiences. If this is you, stop reading right now and make a date with your friends to hit up the local karaoke bar this weekend. With a little bit of practice (okay, maybe A LOT of practice) this could be you: What about those who still have a fear of performing in front of people? Well, that's why the home karaoke system was invented. Designed for those who want to host a more intimate karaoke outing. Also, a great addition to liven up any regular house party. For the rest of us, we know how exhilarating it can be hitting the high notes to the backing track. We know the feeling of seeing the crowd actually enjoying a karaoke performance. Some of you may even be familiar with the high that comes from an enthusiastic applause from the audience. But karaoke isn't something that we actually should take seriously is it? Well, in my opinion, the answer is both YES and NO. Mastering singing is just like any other musical endeavor. It requires both time and purposeful practice. Those who have the control to really let loose while singing have spent hours training their breathing, vocal chords, and posture. They've put in the hours and hard work required to master a skill. One common thread that every experience singer shares is time. If you ask them they will likely tell you they are constantly singing. The sing in the car, in the shower, doing laundry, washing dishes. While this is not exactly purposeful practice, the hours add up over time. If you're like most people, finding all that time to sing can be exhausting. Seriously, who has an extra hour a day to devote to singing? This is where karaoke comes in. While it may be difficult to find the motivation to grind out an hour of practicing the major scale, it's far easier to head down to the bar with your friends for a fun night of karaoke. This is a place where you can relax and let loose. You can challenge yourself under pressure. You can push the boundaries of your range and ability with a little help from alcohol. You may even find yourself getting far more singing in then you would during your typical practice session. Learning a new skill doesn't always have to be a grind. Through finding fun workarounds you are able to make the process much easier. You may even find that karaoke provides you with a new source of motivation. The karaoke stage can be a great way to showcase your talent to a receptive and forgiving crowd. If you underperform, no one has to know that you've been secretly taking singing lessons for the past year. If you knock it out of the park, all the power to you. So while karaoke can be another powerful tool in your arsenal, it doesn't have to be shrouded in a technique and rigor like your regular rehearsals. While I know many of you will still look down your noses at karaoke, I hope I've inspired at least one person to go and give it a chance. What do you think? Is karaoke something worth trying? Let me know in the comments below!
  2. I know, I know, don't bite my head off just yet. I know what you're thinking, "there is no place for karaoke during my vocal practice." For most of you, this statement is correct. However, I know how hard practicing can be. I know there are a few of you out there that don't have enough time to dedicate a few hours a week to vocal training. There is where karaoke comes in. I'll explain below! Before you totally write off this article you'll have to admit: karaoke is fun!

  4. Singing Improvement and training

    Hi All, I have created a YouTube Channel on which I plan to upload acoustic guitar instrumentals to help fellow singers train and improve their singing skills. Looking for feedback and suggestions. What do you guys think? Link to the latest video:
  5. Hey. So. I'm new to all this. I can't play guitar or piano.. so I'm starting to sing using karaoke musics. But the problem is. Usually a song. They make the pitch the same as the singer voice . So it's easier for them to sing. But the thing is when I want to sing his/her song on karaoke version. My vocal range can't hit the high notes if I want to sing . So I need to sing it with lower range which makes it so uneasy on my vocal. So I search on the internet and found that I can use programs to change the pitch of some karaoke songs. So its easier on my voice. The thing is I'm so new about this so I don't know how much I should decrease (Semitones) on the pitch setting... So I'm here to ask you guys how to count the exact Semitones to be decreased on the song so I can sing it easily. Thanks . Sorry if this kinda confusing . I'm totally new to this stuff... Thank you so much

  10. Flight of Icarus (acoustic cover)

    Hello I tried to cover one of my favourites from Iron Maiden i know it sounds off pitch and shitty. But i just want advice on how to make it sound better? I played guitar along with it too but it didnt sound so much. Im a baritone too so any advice on how to work in the higher range would be the best. I know it sounds shit.
  11. For my school production, they are getting us to sing with a karaoke backing track. However, the backing track they are using is too high a key for me to sing in. What should I do?
  12. Critque My Voice Please

    Hi guys! I just signed up for the premium membership and I am so excited to get advice and critiques from you all. I am very serious about my singing and I would like complete honesty when it comes to critiquing my voice. It has has always been my dream to be a recording artist and I really want to go on The Voice or a similar show. Over the past year or so, I have really been trying to develop a unique tone to my voice and I would like to know if it working for me or not and what can I do to improve? I can sing several styles and do different things to my voice for different effects. For the purpose of this post, I have a certain singing style that I would like critiqued, which is my "rock voice." Please be brutally honest and I would like a critique on both videos below. Thank you! http://www.smule.com/recording/nirvana-smells-like-teen-spirit/350287919_289787967 http://www.smule.com/recording/guns-n-roses-sweet-child-o-mine/350287919_289762473

  14. Sia's neck!

    OK, so I was watching Sia on Carpool Karaoke with James Cordon. When she begins singing her neck bellows outwards. What the hell is that? She also goes on to slightly talk about a technique James asks about
  15. Hey Guys Check out my cover of "Love Yourself" on Youtube. Reply with your own LIVE cover recordings!
  16. Hi, so I've been "playing" with my voice doing vocal fry and sirens, and right now i came across this resonance which i believe to be mix voice? Im pretty excited because i can reach higher notes relatively easy. Although without good support and vowel modification the notes just distort in my throat. the way this (mix voice?) feel its pretty much as it is usually described. i can place the note higher in my head or lower towards my chest. Its almost like breaking into falsetto but just hanging to chest resonance anyway I'll leave an mp3 so if anyone can give me some input it will be greatly appreciated!:) PD: i know there are some tuning issues hehe, but still id like to know if im on the right track! Thank you!!!
  17. Something I threw together in the wee hours of the night. I did a double track vocal to try and get the sound right and I think besides a few occasional out of syncs it works nicely. Hopefully you guys like it. http://picosong.com/E2RM/
  18. There's a new Soundbar coming out that is designed for setting up Karaoke easily. Hook with any music apps online and essentially enjoy an unlimited music library. Bluetooth enabed and comes with wireless microphone and subwoofer so no cables mess. Currently on Indiegogo for pre-order and would love some feedback from folks in this forum. There's a live video demo session this Thursday at 1PM PST on Boxtiq.tv. To join the demo download the Boxtiq iOS app and tune in around 1PM Thursday!

  20. Alone from Heart

    I am new to this forum and would like some feedback on my vocals? https://app.box.com/s/cwm3g3ffcohq62ju9w06ilyn1p16fvuq
  21. Hi all, I'm approaching my journey here at TMVW with a complete positive mental attitude! Too long have I settled with my modest range. I intend to push myself to my full potential using the FPOS (should get it delivered in a couple of weeks) so I can sing songs like the one below properly! :-) I have never trained any other range other than my chest, so I have no idea if I'm doing any of it right! I decided to choose a song that is out of my comfort zone (in terms of range) and, instead of transposing it to a lower key, attempted it in the original key. I feel like it's better to get it wrong in the original key than to get it better in a lower key. My performance is weak, I'm embarrassed about this video, I've sang better, but none of that really matters - I just want to improve!
