  1. i took a few days to think over my whole singing situation, and decided that while i would address high notes when practicing, i wouldn't use them in performance. I have come to the conclusion that its best to change the key of the song, to where your voice is most resonant. here is what ihave come up with. http://www.box.net/shared/6lz51gv7al
  2. i like the paul mccartney/jason mraz/bruno mars sound
  3. eric kind of shows what i'm talking about here starting at 5:45 where he uses the pure headvoice for the high notes, and says that you should do melodies with a lip roll to help you determine placement. if you do that on all songs, then you will be singing every song's high notes with a pure head voice tone. i dont know if this only applies to r&b and pop stuff. doesn't sound like paul mccartney is using pure head voice on the high section of Oh Darling, it sounds like he's just screaming it. i'm starting to even confuse myself lol
  4. it goes against the SS or Eric Arceneux method because they say that the power will come eventually.
  5. i dont know, i call it pressure because it feels like you are making making the vocal cords come together more.
  6. one major thing i noticed between both programs, is that rob's program get students started off right away with using a full voice, where as singing success advocates light vocalizing, and not adding too much pressure. I also noticed another vocal coach, Eric Arceneaux, say the same thing, which you can see in this video: the question i have is. if you practice in this light way, while it may be good for that r&b and pop sound, i'm wondering if practicing this way will eventually allow you to easily add more pressure for higher intensity stuff? for example, if you were practicing being light, with no tension, wouldn't something like Oh Darling go against your practicing? You need to add more pressure to it otherwise it will all be head voice, and not the sound you want. basically will the singing success/eric arcenuex light vocalizing approach eventually lead you to easily add more pressure, or are they lacking in this area?
  7. i personally find singing while playing guitar harder then singing to a playback, or singing with someone. Seems like the notes are harder to hit when playing guitar by yourself for some reason.
  8. here is me doing grenade with a head voice type tone. i find that if i practice a high song like this, after a while, like a month, i find it's easier to start to add weight to it. http://www.box.net/shared/r1i6zqck71
  9. my voice is way too deep to properly do this song. I just wanted to see what it would sound like. I basically have do it all in headvoice/nuetral/falsetto. If i tr to put any type of weight on it, it falls apart. I don't really like it http://www.box.net/shared/r1i6zqck71
  10. it;s sort of like when you go "ah" as in "rat" you can feel the vocal cords come together, it sort of forces them together. I try to get the same sensation and keep it throughout. i demonstrate it in that podcast mp3 i did, although i don't demo it well lol. I reminds me of what stevie wonder does when he sings high, sounds like he's holding his breath and being choked lol. I guess this is that moan, hold, or curbing that people talk about.
  11. i'll say this. Bruno Mars has a really high speaking voice, so those notes he sings come easier to him, they are natural to him. I think you'd be better off lowering the key of the song, otherwise it's going to sound forced.
  12. when doing high notes, passed the passagio, is there supposed to be a "hold your breath" type of sensation? Almost like you can feel your vocal cords coming together? That's what i feel at least. If i don't get that sensation, then i can't get those notes out. so i assume it's something that has to happen?
  13. that sort of growl like effect? this girl does it from american idol, starting at 49 seconds i've heard jason mraz and bruno mars do similar effects.
