  1. Thanks Robert. I guess what I'm trying to say with word natural talent is they find the property vocal configuration early on. Then they just work on dev songs because the mechanics are already in place. I have seen this over and over again with really natural singers I grew up with.
  2. I validate my comments from their interviews and myself talking to other great singers in person. Russell Allen, Jeff Scott Soto, Dio, etc. and others I have spoken with said they were always able to sing. It was more of a feeling within them. They all said they had no teacher. The great singer Franco Corelli had no teacher. A teacher actually destroyed his voice and Franco had to rebuild it himself. I'm not saying lessons can't help some folks but most great singers have a lot in their favor to start with. A natural talent is a great (must) starting point. Natural talent in any discipline plus hardwork, leads to the great accomplishments we see in life. No natural talent plus hardwork will not lead very far. All you have to do is open your eyes and ears. I could never be a Tom Brady for example. I can throw a football and run but I had no natural talent in that area, nothing to build on. I realize this is a big world with many different view points and opinions. If someone wants to give singing lessons a try, go for it. Peace! I didn't mean to stir up a ruckus. Lol I will close my comments with my last statement: I realize this is a big world with many different view points and opinions. If someone wants to give singing lessons a try, go for it. Peace!
  3. Some of the absolute best singers I have ever heard had no lessons (Russell Allen, Dio, Tommy Shaw, Mickey Thomas, Jeff Soto etc.) I have interviewed several of professional singers and they just had it naturally. I will also add, some of the absolute worse singers I have ever heard had training, sometimes for years and they still sound horrendous. I believe you need to he born with something to work with. If you sound like shit from the start, you probably will never be a good singer. At least that's my take on things.
  4. Has anybody else noticed the number of vocal coaches on YouTube? It use to be only a few. Lol Now there are hundreds, maybe even thousands. Some are good but many can't sing well at all. Some of them have hundreds of thousands (even millions) of views. What is going on here? Are they qualified or do they just setup shop? Crazy.
