  1. Years later, I feel like I could front a Foreigner cover band, but no one seems to want to make one here. But like Kelly, I drop a bunch down a half making them so much more comfortable. Now I'm working on some Kansas stuff, and like the Foreigner, the challenge is so there....LOVE this tune...Hey, I keep tryin' .............
  2. Thanks so much Kevin..That means a lot to me....I just keep tryin'.....
  3. Not sure if anyone saw these. Amazing vocals, love the tones. Love how he always has that other set of notes. Love the dirt in the verses to the balls up top. You can see the intensity and concentration.
  4. Guess I'll dust this one off. I'm a huge fan. https://app.box.com/s/5b2838c952d11b61d986
  5. You can do amazing things with your voice. You start with believing you can. It's all about believing and "seeing" yourself going somewhere, or other "places" with your voice. I worked years to get just close to emulating other singers voices colors.
  6. Hey Folks, Just popping in to say "Hi." Been busy with the store. Haven't had the time to participate. Hope all is well with everyone. Bob Chris Cornell...sad and what really gets me is it might have been avoided.
  7. Mat I just say this is really not a definitive truth. Many other things can contribute to a raspy voice. Acid reflux, allergies, poor or improper speaking habits, diet, smoking, heredity....... And nodules can come about from as little as one traumatic event like a screaming match. You don't have to be a singer to develop nodules or polyps.
  8. I cannot agree more with this. That Caruso scale did a lot for me. But again, you have to mentally go there and the shaping follows. Great post Benny as always.
  9. All of the above are a nice recipe for trouble. Convince yourself this was a coincidence.
  10. Awesome response MD. Just wish those first few videos could be shown....He attacked.....he was way out of line. If this had been a corporate environment he would have been fired in a heartbeat. I was controversial at times, but I never attacked, never disrespected.
  11. And then there's those of us who put breath management and support at the top of the list for the magic. Everyone has their own way of looking at it. All valid. You have to do what's right for you. But as Benny said, so much is about the controlled exhale which is counterintuitive for you and your body.
  12. I still use a few of those Roger Kain excercises, especially the stacatto ones for the lower core muscles. He talked his own unique language a lot of times on that CD and sometimes that made things a little confusing (looking back at it now.).
  13. Based on what you wrote here, I'd like to suggest you take a step back. So much of your singing is dependant on the mind and your mindset, your attitude, your will, your belief. You need the mind to communicate to your vocal instrument your vocal intentions. This is critical to becoming a good singer. If you are as afraid as you are describing here, (that's very fearful) my suggestion would be to seek out a psychologist. You may have underlying mental conflicts perhaps unrelated to singing that produce the fear and singing is just a trigger of those fears.
