  1. Wow, somebody bumped this, lol. Must have been intriguing.
  2. Right, you're not here to get solicited to buy a singers training program, but think about it; you can be in here getting help for free because you've been granted free access. Think about that As for the song, if you're suggesting that you move those highlighted parts down but keep everything else the same, I wouldn't do that. You risk messing with the feel of the song that way. So, I'd go with what I said.
  3. You can't expect to be done in 3 months. If it was that easy, everybody would do it.This is a marathon, not a sprint.
  4. So you have to change the key. That much seems clear to me. Does Reaper have a feature that allows you to do that to an instrumental track? If not, just see if you can buy an instrumental track of that song that is transposed for a baritone range.
  5. I remember seeing posts like these for years. Now, I finally get it somewhat. What are some good ways of accomplishing this?
  6. So, I finally have a technique question. I saw a video about grunting and I essentially was able to work it into a growl that I can apply to singing. I can consistently do this now, but I know this can be harmful if done wrong, so I was wondering, to those who believe they are doing this right, and can consistently do this and have never had any problems, how does it feel to you? I've experimented with it, but not used it a whole ton. I've gotten it to the point where I barely feel it very little, if at all. Just looking for experiences to compare it to.
  7. Speaking voice has nothing to do with your vocal type. Our own in-house coach, Draven Grey has even said most of his students speak at the lower end of their range. I think voice type has more to do with where your voice sits. So, where you can sing with the most ease while using proper technique.That's what I've gathered.
  8. I figured. That will do it. I suppose if you don't have it worked out by the time you're a fetus, you're screwed for life.
  9. I watched the whole thing and it didn't do that for me. I was wondering if that feeling could be generated in you independent of whether you're into the stuff the singer is singing.
  10. I wonder where she got it from that she might be too old...
  11. Yeah, that's what I'm saying, lol. I had to get lessons and have somebody tell me. I don't remember all that we did, but there were a bunch of things we did to test the voice out. I was always much more about how to do stuff rather than how everything works. All I thought made somebody a baritone or a tenor is that they just naturally had a low voice or a high voice; it was just whatever came out. I'd see some debates here and I never went back and forth because I didn't have much of an opinion. We did some exercises and he (the coach) commented on how I went into the higher range. By higher range, I mean the 5th octave. There was some "ease" to the way I approached it. Then we kept testing things and where I bottomed out (about a G2), I was told, was around where tenors bottom out. I had no idea, but that was true for some of the tenors whose ranges I knew. So, essentially, what was being said was that the way I approached the 5th octave, when using proper technique, made me a tenor. I had nothing to compare it to, of course, because I wouldn't know the way it feels to go into the 5th octave when you're a baritone if I'm not a baritone to begin with. It all made sense though. I thought for 8 years that I was a high baritone, then I found out I was a tenor when I applied the proper technique. It's amazing how easy things can be when you do them right, lol.
  12. How'd you get that bar on the left in Windows 10? Are you using a tablet? Anyways, to stay on topic, yeah, I heard about call mode. Sometimes it takes a hands-on lesson with good people to make sure you're doing things properly.
  13. You should go to the doctor. You have to pay to play.
  14. You're taping your mouth shut when you sleep? Go to the doctor. You've probably got improper technique, but that problem is then exacerbated by your throat issue.
  15. I think The Four Pillars of Singing deserves a spot in your list of consideration. I don't know about the other ones, besides Singing Success, so I can't speak on those. As far as Singing Success goes, I assume Singing Success 360 is some kind of revamped product from the original Singing Success. Let me tell you, Singing Success had me feeling like I had come up short. Lots of flashy stuff, but when it came down to, "Oh! How do I do that?", there was no substance. There may have been a change of heart and Singing Success 360 is an honest program, but I just can't make the gamble again. I can say that The Four Pillars is an expansive program with a wealth of knowledge. You'll be working on that stuff, while improving for quite a while. There's a lot of work to do, and that's a good thing for you. The guy who created it is a rock singer, so you will absolutely be able to develop your rock and metal chops.
  16. Can't imagine that number one would be an issue. Not sure about the other stuff. I think 4's fixed just by doing exercises throughout your range. At least that's what caused mine to be fixed.
  17. If you're doing it wrong. I tried for years to match these guys who were up in tenor range, because a lot of guys I listened to were tenors. I couldn't do it without flipping into falsetto and ending up with a completely different tone. I finally start working with somebody who knows and not only do I find I'm getting up in that range, I find out that I'm a tenor! After believing for 8 years that I'm a baritone. I got several opinions on that. Some thought I was a baritone, some weren't sure. It just goes to show that it doesn't matter how many times you do something or how hard you try if you're doing it wrong. Failure does not mean you can't do something. An important lesson.
  18. Oh, I’m probably the only guy here among everyone else who isn’t a Rock guy, lol. All I know is I just went about 7 years thinking I was a baritone and am now being told I’m a tenor. For me, I was automatically singing with a very darkened sound because I was trying to imitate certain other baritones. It happened pretty naturally. I would just say that your best bet would be to have a skilled coach, who could hear you while your voice undergoes a test of sorts and they can hear you in different contexts. I say this because I showed people here a clip a few times and it seems unless it’s utterly blatantly obvious (a very deep voice or a very high voice), it’s not clear from one clip.
  19. I remember you posting before. Why can’t your teacher give you a voice type? You don’t trust him/her?
  20. That’s what I was wondering. It sounded like a growl to me. You don’t know how long I’ve been trying to learn that. Are you using the vestibular folds to produce this?
