  1. EEasiest way to Find Subharmonics, that I've found. 1. Sit back on recliner 2. Recline and tilt head back 3. Completely relax throat, head, and body 4. Take deep breath with diaphragm/ release half the air 5. Close vocal chords (swallow and maintain them closed) 6. Use the vowel "ee", on the most natural (not deep) SOUND (not note), that comes out 7. As you open them slowly, release the air from stomach (sigh softly) 8. If your still can't hear it, try adding more or less air gradually, and make sure you are 100% relaxed.
  2. Thank you for your response. That is alot of great information, I was unaware of. Definitely worth looking into further. I've only been teaching myself to sing for a month, and won't have my first lesson until January. I have a gut feeling, they will move me to Baritone. My voice peaks at about an F4, before becoming ear crinchingly Horrible! I literally cannot go higher than C4. My 2nd and 3rd octaves are my "natural" range, but for some reason it also seems to be the middle of my gap. It's difficult to find the correct Key in that range, for some reason. When I do though, it sounds much better, it's easier to manipulate resonance, easier to sing in pitch, etc. Doesn't make much sense if it's my easiest range, but the hardest to find. Any advice or suggestions on that particular issue?
  3. Im a newbie. So I have a really deep voice. Can hit Bb1 plus subharmonics down to a D1. My bass sounds and feels natural to me. I keep being told that I'm an octive to low, and my choir teacher actually wants me to sing Tenor in January. This higher range sounds horrible and feels unnatural (to me), but it seems like a common theme among critiques. So am I a tenor with a crazy bottom range, or a Bass with a Crazy top range? I'm new to singing and am so confused with range...any advice or answers? Everyone says my Tenor sounds better, but my bass feels more natural. Tried attaching video, but it keeps telling me file size is to large and im tired of reshooting it to make it shorter.
  4. Milly I mispoke its not an -A1 it's around a D0. (I corrected the post) It's usually at the very end of my practice that I can do it, and like I said I need a TON of work. Posting public videos would be quite embarrassing. I posted a couple on YouTube and commentators were quite the assholes! I really didn't type this to prove anything, just to ask for help, because I need so much of it being a newbie. I wouldn't mind emailing you personally with a video or two though, provided you don't share and offer some constructive criticism rather than insults. Had a meeting with a vocal coach at my local college yesterday. She's going to start me at a tenor, because my lower register needs so much work (but its definitely there).
  5. Never had a singing lesson in my life, but starting school in Jan. 2019. I can hit an A#1 in chest, A#0 in Subharmonics, and I've found a lower subharmonic that even takes it to a D0(I think?). It's also getting deeper and better by the day. I've only been singing (horribly I might add) for a few weeks. I cannot find any advice, practice techniques, digital Tuners, songs, etc. For this range.... Ive exhausted you tube on the subject. luckily I have a 2nd decent baritone range as well to help with vocal entertainment. Anyone that can help? I need a ton of work, but really feel there's something special there I need to build on and share.
