:D this glottal exercise you suggested to this member is awesome it got me back some closure with my voice.

i haven't been able to do exercisers in 3 months because my closure on low notes didnt even feel there,

so i couldn't even feel falsetto.

but ive been doing it while i go up in half steps and its seems really hard

should i only be doing this for a note or 2 or can i do it for more notes

it helps me when i can get the glottal pop threw out most of my chest range. but to do that i need to spend alot of time on those pops but my problem is over time the pop slowly disappears??

what am i doing wrong?:|

davidthegolith: Glad to hear that they have been of some use, but interested to help with your current challenges.

The 'glottal pop' is just a way to test that the full closure is happening. If it is not happening, Its possible that you are letting the airflow begin too early, what is called an 'aspirate onset'. To minimize this, for a bit, the easiest way is to simply not breathe much before a note. Take a very small breath, do a couple glottal pops without phonating, and then use the same mental gesture to onset a note.

As mentioned, the pop is a means to an end, to help discover the complete glottal closure. When singing, we try to time the closure with the air, so that a coordinated onset occurs, one where the arrival of the air is simultaneous with the glottal closure.

Send a clip if you like, so I can listen. Its always easier for me to work that way.

I hope this is helpful.
