  1. Thanks all for those great replies! Lyrics aren't a problem for me. Its the subtleties, note bends, note delineations, the "microtrills", the melodic variation, singing soft/hard, etc. that pose a challenge.
  2. I heard this song yesterday. This song is so good, gave me goosebumps the very first time even though the highest note the singer hits in this is F4. However this song is very difficult to sing atleast for me because it requires pitch precision, has many subtleties and is very delicate with the melody. One off note can mess it up. I wanna sing the Acapella of this. What are your suggestions how do I go about learning it? At around 03:37, this guy sings that line amazingly <3 Note to mention his vocal texture is insanely beautiful. This is my native language btw. Thanks!
  3. Try doing broad "Aa" on a scale (as in bat) but don't go overboard with the broadness. Go only as far as comfortable in your chest voice. Your voice should feel solid after this.
  4. I'm not quite getting what you're trying to say.. Is it that you can stay in m1 yet sound light and soothing like the singers I posted?
  5. I can sing D5s in m1 but that's not what I desire. They sound belty and they resonance is too piercing.
  6. Thank for the tips. My headvoice/reinforced falsetto are ridiculously strong. I can rock a room with it. I can also sing like the above listed singer for upto f#4 after that my voice becomes too light and starts sounding like headvoice. However after Bb4s my voice starts sounding powerful and fuller.
  7. How to I learn to sing like that? I never like "belty" high notes. The emotional impact of the light yet full voice is what I'm looking for. I cannot let go. If I let go, I am in falsetto and if I don't let go, the sound comes out too strong. Here's the original song in case anyone's wondering: Here's the artist singing it live:
  8. I myself belong to India too lol. Accent? lol hells no. There are numerous singers around here that sound nothing like him. This is technique not accent. Here is another guy of the same descent singing the same song in an entirely different way:
  9. Take a look at this. This singer is defying gravity. He sings light yet without breaking or sounding weak. I heard that you must sing in full voice to hit the high notes correctly. I have to tighten up in the abdomen and compress more to go high. But this singer has confused me so much. When I attempt doing it like him, I break into falsetto. I almost have the same tenorish tone quality as him. How do I learn to develop this type of technique? I am studying SLS yet I sound more compressed and "waily" than him.
  10. Yes some are born with greater musical ability and creativity. I've cousins who sing way way better than me without any training, Their vocal range spans from C4 to G4 but they've mastered this part. What attracts the audience or the listener is not high vocal range and crazy skills but a voice that evokes emotions and stays perfectly on key.
  11. haha I meant his skill not style. Take a look at Janam Janam.
  12. haha I'm an Indian myself too dude.. Great to see you here. I agree with the hardwork thing and I'm slowly realizing that the Indian classical training is the best if you want to sing in India. However the recording I posted was of the guy with no training whatsoever. As suggested by the other dude, this guy has probably been imitating the songs he has been listening to over the years. I do not want to be like Rahat G however because he is exceptionally well trained (first by Nusrat sir himself). The skills of Arijit Singh is as far as I want to go.
  13. Added the link. What about the guy on the recording? It's so fast, I can't even figure out what he's doing. Also his vibrato is ridiculously fast. I've Brett Manning's trills and vibrato stuff but I've not improved much from them. The Indian trills or what sound like trills are very different. They're more like micro trills.
  14. This is my friend singing. He's a natural. I cannot even process what's going on with these Indian style trills/runs/licks. How does one develop such agility? Is that even possible to achieve? How do I even memorize these notes? You can witness this in almost any Indian song. This sounds so beautiful. Recording: Another one:
