Hey guys,

I finished doing Lugo's exercises earlier.

Throughout the work i felt like there was a

lot of air stuck in my throat or mouth. I thought

maybe its because i was inhaling too much so i tried to inhale the very

smallest bit of air but it didn't help. Could anyone please tell

me what is wrong? I still have this air stuck in my throat...

It doesnt seem to effect my range...but im sure youre not

Supposed to feel this during singing. Id really appreciate your help

if you could please tell me what im doing wrong. Thanks guys!

@videohere: well, i dont have a sample...and i honestly dont know exactly when it happens...it just does only when im exercising the voice. It doesnt effect my singing but its uncomfortable though.

@jonpall: what is over supporting? Maybe im doing that but i have no clue.

Thanks again guys.

I don't know if it's the CVT book or other but this method is a way to get a feel out of support. Try sing a note with deliberately no support at all, mentally give it a number 1. Then another with all the support you can muster and call it 10. Then increase what you think is support in increments from 1 to 10 until you can feel there is a slight and quite even change in between them and note where it is most comfortable/best sounding etc.

Works with a lot of hold/breath/muscle but not quite muscle exercises.

Cheers

Fred

I think I may be supporting too much and that's what's causing the problem.

For support, I basically lock down, like Jaime Vendera teaches, and I keep a downwards push while I sing..

Problem is, I'm just pushing too much, more than what I need.

Thanks videohere, jonpall, Fred. Appreciate your responses!

If you're pushing down too much, that's going to cause throat tension (my experience).

Also, if you take in too much air, your throat acts like a tied off balloon to hold the air inside you. This also creates tension in the throat. I'm finding smaller breaths work much better. You might try that.

Man the whole Breathing thing can be pretty mysterious.

not to confuse you stan, but you can even engage support without an inhale....

another benefit of efficient breathing/well supported breathing not always mentioned, is you develop the ability to quickly insert a breath, where you might not have been able to....for example when it's needed for short, quick singing lines which helps with singing fast tempo songs or songs with major shifts in tone and intensity...
