  1. I didn't use to train falsetto but when I started doing so last month I noticed it was helping me open up and remove unnecessary tensions, as well as establishing better placement in the hard and soft palate region. Now in the G4-C#5 range I feel my voice wants to release into those notes, but for whatever reason I've been hitting a wall. I suspect this is due to a mixture of factors: 1. Poor use of the breath. The higher I go the less breath I need, not more. If I blast the vocal folds with too much air, of course they just get slammed wide open. I am learning to use as minimal air as possible for falsetto to get used to the sensation of suspension when singing. 2. Sub-optimal vowels. I may be keeping the same shape as in the low & middle part of my voice, and it seems some gradual adjustment needs to done to go higher. 3. Incorrect mental visualization of the tone. Since everything starts with the mind, I need to have a mental picture of what the desired sound will be BEFORE I sing it. And this may be part of the reason why my larynx has been shooting up and choking off the sound. When I have a lower larynx I find it easier to sing because I have more acoustic space, greater stability, and a warmer, more balanced timbre. So basically I'm curious if training falsetto has helped open up your upper notes and if so, how did you use that as an intermediate step to learn your full/complete voice coordination? I feel that I am almost there but missing some steps, especially with complete adduction, proper vowels, breath management/efficiency, and a lowered/more stable larynx.
  2. Hey guys! I have been thinking about what is physically different inside when someone has a more accentuated F1 ( shouty/yell quality ), versus someone that doesn't have a big difference between his "high chest" shouty range and his "mix" or above his bridge point. Is this what makes voices more "dramatic", "heroic", "lyrical" ? What is this acoustic space, where is it ? Does it have a distinct sound or participation in the high range, even if you are out of F1? Do Baritones have bigger Overdrive/Yelly sound than lighter voices? So these are several questions I've asked myself, do you guys have any observations on it? Any experience? What can your voices do?
  3. I think I speak really inefficiently. My voice goes, mainly my mix, and my tone completely goes. All the weight comes back in my voice. I really have no idea how to fix this. Lip rolls etc help in the short-term but I think I need to change the way I speak. It's almost as if all the training goes as soon as I start speaking Anyone have any tips?
  4. Going by GneeTaps suggestion, I wrote a chorus only today. Worked numerous hours for an 11 second snippet lol. workflow was along these lines: 1) Drums programmed yesterday 2) Started writing melody in D...starting on the highest note and working down. Starting note is (supposed to be anyway lol) a G#4 which is the flat5 in the key of D 3) started putting down a few scratch guitar parts using practice amp 4) sort of bounced back and forth between finalizing the melody and changing the guitar to fit better 5) Sang all the lead VX 6) Layered all the BGV. 4 separate lines, all doubled. It gets a little into the Eagles/Queen/Boston/Yes vibe 7) Redid all the guitar parts (still just used practice amp though). 2 main parts, both doubled 8) added bass 9) mixed....while falling asleep about 10x Anyway, let me know how it sounds. if nothing else its pretty interesting Here are all the various parts....pretty trippy hearing the layered vocal track by itself Full snippet https://clyp.it/41g4esi0 Rhythm Track https://clyp.it/joo5tv4l Full vocal tracks https://clyp.it/155rws0y Lead Vx only, definitely at the top end of my range https://clyp.it/uv0tgitn BGV only, 4 separate parts, each doubled (see if u can pick out the parts) https://clyp.it/bvfb0lkn Enjoy
  5. Where do you guys feel your resonance on low notes and high notes? I never feel it in the mask, on high notes I can feel it on or slightly above the soft pallete but mostly I feel nothing except for ocassionally a little vibration on both sides of my throat right under the chin. I've read that some people can feel the resonance in the top of their heads which just seems insane to me. I'm asking because It's weird and cool that everyone feels the resonance in different areas.
  6. Another 1 day wonder. not 100% finished...needs bass gtr and some ad libs such as in the intro chorus fun stuff https://clyp.it/ccf4wf40
  7. I'm hoping to connect with some good producers to make some original stuff
  8. Since every single thread recently seems to derail into a talk about registers in some manner, and no one made a thread for it, this will be around for a while. So if you feel like talking about M1, chest, head, falsetto, heady, mixed, or anything else of similar content, this is the place. Posts on other threads that do not have an objective and specific point in regards to the thread subject and that start to go in the direction of "M2 is the new M1" usuall conversations most likely will be deleted. "To do that thing well, keep in your normal voice, like this: sample shown" - Fine "In 1952 when observing the M3 register using high energy plasma on professional opera rockstars, scientists figure that..." - Should be in here What do you need to know about registers: There are five different ways of seeing this particular subject that comes to my mind right away: - A mechanical register: M0,M1,M2,M3 - An area of pitch: "All above note T4 is head, bellow, chest." - A quality or intensity used: Heady -> Soft. Chesty -> Strong, Mix -> middle. - A specific position of the vocal tract. - A sensation. The way it was used on classical technique, was more about the later two, and even so on its begining it was really just the sensation, that's where the names "chest" and "head" came from to begin with. What is important to keep in mind is that since its a reference of sensation, it does have pedagogic value but it will not reflect exactly into any of the first. There are specific coordinations that are know to produce the sensations, but they were unknown when the terms were first used and the ideals of both sounds and execution started to appear. This initial post will be updated with relevant information as it appears along the way. I will do an effort to include samples for each of the ideas, probably with the help of Dan and Jens if they are up to it :).
  9. So I can hit the high notes I want too hit but they tend to have a slight raspy edge to them, I can make it sound not raspy if I open my mouth really wide but then I can't seem to narrow my vowels and it sound kind of dopey. I Feel like I should be releasing tension and giving more power to the head voice in my mix at this point but I just don't know how.
  10. I consider myself a beginner even though I've been practicing with various different methods for a few years (online). I am able to bridge my passaggio with complete ease and sing throughout my entire range without strain, hell, even my belts in mixed sound pretty good sometimes. BUT, I hate the rest of my voice, when I'm singing softly/normally. It just sounds so boring and dull, but I have no idea how to make my tone better. I find most of the training focuses on bridging the passaggio + singing in mixed/m2 and stuff - but what about if you hate your tone? I mean, it has improved a little over the years but nowhere near as much as the other areas. Any tips for improving the softer aspects of the voice? Is it a key thing? I really wanna take some lessons in real life but I'm very short on cash and I'm shy (hence not uploading any audio sample here, sorry I know that just text isn't a lot to go on) plus most of the people I can afford are usually SLS...
  11. https://app.box.com/s/1o80rydp0b6dbdw0r7hi4tb255w6n4b7 I've been listening to Mariah's older work recently and wanted to try one of her songs that didn't employ the whistle register. In this key, the top note is C#5, on "SOMEthing just went wrong" but I ended up changing the melody in that line. I did try to do the 4 or 5 B4's and C5's in the rest of the song though. This song was challenging dynamically and for a million other reasons - especially the really low verses and much higher choruses. I was trying to get comfortable in that mixed/head voice sort of configuration for the second half of the song. I had to keep reminding myself to keep my soft palate raised for those weird sections of the chorus that sit around A4. Any and all feedback welcome!
  12. Just getting tips on YouTube is NOT EVER going to help you to sing better. A free tip without content and your commitment to practice and train, will do nothing for you. To sing better, you have to train, practice and sing songs. TheFourPillarsofSinging.com.
  13. So, just the other night as a part of my class, I had to sing and though I was nervous, after going through the song beforehand, I felt a bit more confident. However, it didn't show in my singing where my voice wasn't projecting as well as it should've. I was also making little body movement and I couldn't hit certain high notes like I was able to when I practiced. Overall, after the performance, my voice was a little raspy and my throat was hurting me. I will say, I'm not trained at all, but I am looking for singing lessons after the semester is over. Is this normal? I had such a hard time using my head voice and I know I could sing better than I did last time. Any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks
  14. I'm extremely confused. According to this video: I can go from G3 to C5. Now, the chart says I'm a mezzo-soprano, but my voice doesn't sound dark or heavy at all! I can go low, but as soon as I enter what I think is my mixed voice, my voice sounds bright and high. I'm talking about this sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1znaw5PugOE (She's the only singer I found with my voice sorta). What am I? I like the sound of my chest voice a lot, but it's pretty useless.
  15. Robert Lunte - "Nocturne" I love this song, I hope you do too... Some of you have heard this. This is the Final production. Special thanks to my team Zack Uidl, Jason Shavey and Clay Copeland.
  16. This is not a song I would normally try to cover but my wife has been playing it over and over. I needed to record it to get it to stop playing in my head. Any thoughts on what I need to improve on is welcome.
  17. just wondering if anyone else suffers with this, every time i have a vocal lesson/ warm up my voice the tone and quality of my voice changes. i go from sounding very pop to sounding like a very weak opera singer. i find it very weird then about 20 minutes to half an hour later my voice goes back to a stronger better sounding pop voice. i asked my tutor about it and he's never had any other student who suffers from this i just wondering if anyone else suffers from/ can explain why this is happening. thanks
  18. Hello! I love classical singing music, and listen often. I only sing in the shower and when I listen to music, but now I want to take lessons. But first I will read about it, and watch Youtube videos. recorded voice range: Lowest note F, and highest c2 (tenor high c). But my personal best is Eb and d2 sometimes. Which is my vocal fach? My tessitura`? Thanks for helping!
  19. So I'm a tenor and 16 years old. But recently, I have gained an interest in low notes. I can usually go down to A2-G2 but it's pretty hard. Recently, I was able to go down to an F#2. I did reach a F2 and even an E2 once but i was told it was vocal fry. But really, I think the low notes are destroying my naturally high voice. I'm asking why am I gaining notes so fast all the sudden and what do I do to preserve my high range because since I started with low notes I can still hit a c5 but not as easily as I could. Please help. I don't want to turn into a baritone and lose my high range. And as a ps I have gone through puberty
  20. Hi there! I am new to this forum but I am going crazy and I need an analysis of technique or opinions of this singer! (Specifically 2:47 - 3:05) How is he able to pull so much weight up sounding full without narrowing his tone into (best way I can describe it) a little boys voice?! Compared to the 2nd video where (same song and singer) he just transitions to (correct me if I'm wrong) to mixed/head voice. or is he doing something completely different? (2nd video : 2:34 - 2:47) The singer is Korean! Thank you!
  21. Hey guys! I'm a guy, and have always had random access to which seems like the whistle register - although it seems like an extension of my falsetto and I never count it as my usual range. It comes and goes, more often not there, and usually airy and disconnected from the rest of my voice. But the WEIRDEST thing happened - I let out a yawn and made a noise. I went from the bottom of my range, up to my head voice (which stops at about E5), and went into a fully connected whistle register. I was hitting up to an E6 VERY clearly, completely connected to the rest of my voice. I was gliding up and down (to my lowest note - A2) with complete ease, and it felt and sounded more like a part of my head voice as opposed to an airy, difficult to produced falsetto. This has never happened to me before, so I found it pretty exciting I could easily get completely connected heady sounding note all the way up there. But alas, it just kinda stopped and I wish I recorded it for you guys to decipher what was going on! I was wondering if any other guys (or girls) have any experience of something like this happening. Are there any ways of nurturing this? Tried to do some lip rolls up there but now I can't access it as easily
  22. So after a long long while i returned to singing and even tough i sang this last year, i wasnt really practicing in a strickt sense of that word. But some good things happened to my voice. I will return to forum in pursuit of more vocal improvement. I wanted to share a small clip of some sirens up to C#5 for your reviewing. I understand this is far from perfect but this is something i havent been able to do before. https://app.box.com/s/xprqtqixm5zym91l4dxxenyr58ddi07d I just wanted to know if im on the right track to gaining vocal range or am i just shooting in the dark. Thanks!
  23. Hi, I am new here and I hope I am not breaking the forum rules by such questions So, I am 17 years old male who really likes singing but I am curre tly confused about many things. When I was a child (11-14 years maybe), I sang in a choir and I probably had one of the highest voices (so I was classified as boy soprano), but I stopped attending the choir around the age of 13/14. However, I didn't stop singing and I sang songs that I liked. I haven't really thought about such things as voice ranges until now though. By the way, classmates keep telling me that I have unnaturally high speaking voice. I have decided to join school choir few weeks ago and, to my surprise, not only I was classified as a tenor, but also I was told that my highest note they wanted me to sing - G4 - is higher than most tenors have. Well, as I've "tested" my vocal range (without any technique, warm up or so) few days before joining the choir, I was expecting they'll tell me I am a (high) baritone. So about my voice range (C4 is middle C I hope) - my absolute minimum is probably F2, but I usually can't sing comfortably below C3, my absolute maximum is A4, but I usually can't sing it comfortably (and sometimes I can't just sing it, for example when I've sung in this height for a long time - for example now ), so I suppose G4 is my "reasonable" maximum. Another strange thing is my falsetto. I have good-sounding falsetto, but the problem is that my falsetto maximum is C5, so I usually don't need to use it, as I can sing with my "normal" voice. I really like to practice singing in my boundaries, so I often try to sing around F2 and G/A4 (which leads to temporary (I hope) unability to sing A4 and sore throat. And I don't hear any registry changes, my voice sounds the same to me in every height (I can't hear any head voice or things like that)... So my questions are: Am I right when I think I am probably a baritone? Can I damage my voice by singing in my range boundaries? Is there a hope that I'll be able to extend my range to more "tenor" height (notes A4, B4, C5), for example when I start to attend a singing teacher (I think of that, but not just because of extending range, but because I simply want to practice my voice, as people tell me I have beautiful voice...) Similar question, but about falsetto - Can I extend my falestto above C5, for example F5? Even if such things are possible (I am definitely not sure), I understand it would be long and challenging.
  24. Hi, so I've been "playing" with my voice doing vocal fry and sirens, and right now i came across this resonance which i believe to be mix voice? Im pretty excited because i can reach higher notes relatively easy. Although without good support and vowel modification the notes just distort in my throat. the way this (mix voice?) feel its pretty much as it is usually described. i can place the note higher in my head or lower towards my chest. Its almost like breaking into falsetto but just hanging to chest resonance anyway I'll leave an mp3 so if anyone can give me some input it will be greatly appreciated!:) PD: i know there are some tuning issues hehe, but still id like to know if im on the right track! Thank you!!!
  25. I believe I am using too much air while singing clean vocals, this is great for when I want a breathy tone and when the song calls for it, but the thing is I don't know how to cut back on the air without letting my voice distort. Whenever I cut back on the air, vocal distortion kicks in, and my vocals get a grunge like rasp tone. I've discovered that whenever I sing anything above F#4, I can't sing it without vocal distortion kicking in. I don't believe it's an issue involving breath support, because I can sing all the way up to A4 comfortably, even though I can only sing above F#4 with a distorted tone. Too much air dries out my vocal chords pretty fast whenever I sing clean, and I often have to pause between lyrics and inhale fast so I can get enough breath for the next phrase, I manage to do it flawlessly, but it is annoying. Why can't I cut back on the air without my vocals distorting into a grunge/raspy tone?
