  1. Some of my favorite memories singing are in the car on long trips. 2 hrs of Chili peppers and queen, drove my girlfriend so crazy. lol. I think as far as posture is concerned, as long as your necks straight it's all good
  2. Yes thanks for your comment Adolph. I do understand, and as I stated in my previous comment, I feel that I have my answer. You are right, and your comments sum up quite well, where I am at with this answer. Thank you. Michael
  3. Thank you all for your answers. I am satisfied, and understand all your help. My question has been answered. I will train with the Horizontal Embouchure, as I have a small mouth, and had a small problem with my left jaw hinge. A vertical Embouchure is not impossible, but the Horizontal works best for me. And when I get stronger, and have a good Embouchure, and vowel modifcation habits, i will experiment for different sounds. Thanks again Michael
  4. Thank you for your reply Robert. And yes you are thinking of the right person. I have finished the lectures and am reading the book for 2nd time. My training is only the foundation building routine, and sometimes sirens after the onsets. I fully understand your instructions regarding the Embouchure, and am following them properly. My question was something that without your instructions I never would have thought of! Now when I listen to, or watch musicians sing, I have a whole new understanding of what singers are doing and how! I found it interesting the way Kurt Cobain technically sang unplugged. Nearly closed Embouchure, and contrary to rumor, distortion with no visible strain.
  5. After studying the four pillars of singing, I was watching Nirvana unplugged, and noticed that for over 90 percent of Kurt Cobains performance, his embouchure was almost completely closed. Yet he still manages to perform, and produce a sound that is entertaining, and to my ears quite good. Even during his distortion, which he is most known for, he doesn't seem to be straining much at all, and his embouchure is still just open. So I guess my question is... is it really necessary to always use a full horizontal, or vertical Embouchure? Or as with the vowel modification, should the embouchure also be experimented with?
