Exercise example, does it sound right?

Hi all..

I've practised on how to start in chest voice with a lower volume, and to keep he same volume throuhout the scale.

I did it on goog, after I've seen a YouTube clip with a guy called Eric arceneaux. I wanna admit I've seen it a long time ago but only started to believe in that this exercise might help me find the "middle voice", which I believe you understand what I mean by.

Also, as I ascend on the exercise, I also focus on "releasing the air into the head to resonate there", so i can end up in what I hope then is the middle voice. :)

Before, I used to sing the first three notes in the scale in heavy chest voice, and the voice would flip into that airy mood which is powerless and disconnected on the top note.

I've made a short clip to introduce my "goog" sound and if I do it correctly? I know this exercise also comes from speech level singing and singing success so I don't mind you guys involved in that method to analyse my sound clip. At the moment I only practice between G#3-B4.. But here I introduce between A#3-A#4!.

Hope to hear feedback :) cheers

Hi guys!!!

Ohh thank you! Makes me happy you helped me out.

So I guess my chest voice sound efficient?

"release the air into the head" - what I mean is as I ascend I try to let the resonance travel up to my nose cavities and sort of into my head. Does it make sense?

Do I make it better in this clip? http://m.soundcloud.com/smoothoperator-cvoice/2-february-2014-10-10-27

Shall I just release into head voice on the top notes? What it sounds like is what I try to do from your explanation is to like bring the chest voice settings up to headvoice but that doesn't work.. So I just leave chest voice at the top note is that what you mean?

Hi again!

I practiced more earlier and following your advice really helped me i think!

Heres one where i sing goog:

Heres one where i sing goog to mah: -mah-mah-mah

I feel that i connect.. Basically i just let the voice go wherever it wants to go by doing the following things u adviced me.. Did i improve?

I took it the highest to C5.. The top note would be C5.. But i didnt record it, but it sounded fine! It sounds connected but not powerful but i believe if i practice quietly first for a while with right coordination, i can add power the right way and wont fall back again on pushing the voice :) but if i wanna practice higher pitches, do i keep the same volume all the way thru??

Thanks so much for all the help! I hope im on the right track now :)

Thats nice smooth, really nice.

On the first sample on goog, take care with the definition of the vowel, compare the vowel that you began "geeg" and that you finished "goog". Try to define it more on that last oo. I would also work that on the front of a mirror, relax your jaw and try to not let your mouth "help" with the articulation, you will see that you can do this just with movement on the back of your mouth.

The sample on mah sounds good too.

Thank u guys u make me happy!

I also try to focus more on the vowel than the pitch, and keep same volume.. Like that i can easier let the voice go where it wants to go, obviously to the good way. I will try to not overdo the exercise either and also keep singing songs.

Just one more question.. Becoz i do this exercise kinda quiet.. Do i let my voice go into headvoice when i sing the topnote? Where is mix voice in my range as a female vocalist?

I can feel my mix starts around D4. Any female singers out there?

Thnks i owe u some help too. I hope i can help too hehe

I wish i had money to take a lesson now.. Gotta sort it out asap!

smooth, do not worry about these things, you are already doing what is necessary. And no, do not let it go into head voice yet. Just keep working with comfort and eventually you will find the point where its optimal to release.

Oh yeah, sing with it. Thats what is most important.

Hey, I thought i'd chime in as a fellow female - not loads on this forum. I can't actually get the sounds clips to work but D4 is about right. It depends on what 'mode' you're wanting to sing as to when you enter your headvoice (i'm presuming you mean falsetto?) It's possible to take a mixed voice up to a G5 (or slightly lower/higher depending on voice type) But this takes time and practice so be patient. If you are singing something softer, you can enter headvoice earlier, it totally depends on the song. One isn't better than the other, it's about having choices.
