    Some covers for review

    Hi guys and girls! Please check out my Youtube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClg...VhBD6WrXI16-Lw or my SoundCloud channel at: https://soundcloud.com/singhlottay for some acoustic covers I have done. All are recorded through my phone live in one take! No frills!! Would love to know what you all think. If you like them, please subscribe and feel free to comment. Go ahead, make my day! Singh
  2. I was thinking of this and I'd love to hear your opinions, especially from the voice teachers. Let's say a singer tried an experiment. He committed to practicing every day where he has to run the voice up his range and he had to avoid any kind of bridging, no letting go into falsetto, no transitioning...nothing... just had to run the full voice up all through just sheer will and determination. So any scale, any siren any voice exercise had to be done in full voice. No use of any heady placement, just pull up chest higher and higher..... I wonder,,,,,Would the voice eventually find it's way all the up the range? Would you and your voice figure out the way up through the "passaggio" and above? Would the development in this way open up the voice and allow it to release? I mean it's not like anyone's thinking of this or trying it, but I just wonder what the voice might end up doing in terms of capability and development. We always teach and read how the chest voice ends and now you have to nowhere to go......how you get stuck....or how you need to transition....... Historically speaking, did the teachers or singers of years gone by ever explore this? So let's say you just chest pulled for a few months, where would the voice end up? Would it be damaged? Would it be unbalanced? Who's to say...... (And yes.....I'm a little crazy I guess..lol)
  3. Hi peeps, im not sure at all Is lead singer singing a twang in head voice at the chorus? Or is he just belting up his chest voice?😬😬 I'm unsure, could anyone help me out? Lawson.. When she was mine http://youtu.be/GmQRAXJoHg0 Lawson.. You'll never know http://youtu.be/_X3RZBywkmA
  4. So, today I've tried singing a new song I wrote for the band. I think I'll leave it to our lead singer but it was interesting hearing myself through an amp.   When I record myself I know that my head voice sounds much fatter than it sounds in my head. When I record it goes from Bee Gees falsetto in my head to almost one voice. Let's say 1.1 voice...  when I sang and heard myself through the monitors it was weird though. I felt like I was singing the notes (which is good) but it really sounds different, and made me instinctively not understand why I'm not in head voice in places where I usually switch... the monitors overtake the sound that's in my head, of course...    My question is, how do you practice on coordinating yourself with what you hear from the 'outside'? any tips on how to get over the difference in what one hears?   Any (very) affordable solutions for home use and practice? I mean, I have a tube amp for my guitar... not sure how a vocal mic would work on it though...     Edit: After writing this I figured out I can experiment with a recording device I have with a built in mic and output for headphones. Still, if anyone has any ideas, thoughts, experience - I'd love to hear about it. 
  5. Hello everyone I'm ShySoprano and I'm happy to join this forum! I've seen it a couple of times before and I can tell people on here are musicians who know what they're talking about so I definitely wanted to go on here and ask some questions, get more educated about music, etc. I use another forum that has the exact same set-up as this so this is pretty easy...for now. I'm a soprano. I don't know what kind specifically, but it's definitely something lyric, not dramatic. If it helps, I'm a freshman and I sing soprano 1 in the all-girls choir. I know a lot of music technique and a lot of things about the soprano voice, but I don't know how to apply it. If it's okay, I'd like to ask a few questions about technique and vocal ability. Hopefully someone can answer at least one of them, though it's okay if no one wants to. Just so you know, I have the tendency to write essays on these forums... 1) The lowest note I can sing naturally is the E-flat below Middle C (Eb3) and the highest note I can sing is the A above High C (A6). I have to do a lot of warm-ups like octave jumps to hit that A though. The highest note I can hit without warming up is E6. I don't have a strong/fixed mixed register because I'm not formally trained but I have sung there once before unintentionally. The highest note I can sing in my chest voice is C5, but my voice normally starts to change at F4. My first question is a bit of a stupid one. For someone who has very little technical training other than choir, does this sound good or impressive? Or is it average? Below average? 2) The head voice is supposed to be the soprano's strength. I just discovered and started singing in my head voice in 8th grade because my choir teacher back then wanted me to sing soprano and I obviously couldn't sing everything in chest. I've definitely gotten better and I sing in actual head voice, not falsetto like I would sometimes. Like I said, I'm one of the higher sopranos in choir now. Problem is, I run out of breath so quickly. I can hold long notes in my chest and lower head voice. But once I get way up there, I struggle so much with my breath control. We're singing "Hallelujah" and theres a part where the sopranos start holding notes for 8-10 beats while the notes get higher and I always die on that part. What's wrong? And how do I fix it? 3) How do I strengthen my head voice? Mine is really light but it's kind of weak compared to other girls' and it's too feathery. I'd also like to know how to get a natural vibrato. I know you can't force it or apply it consciously to come because that leads to vocal damage, it's supposed to come naturally. 4) How do I get better mixed notes? When I mixed registers that one time I talked about, it sounded like I was in chest but it was lighter, almost going into head. I felt vibrations more in my head than in my chest and you're supposed to feel them in both (or in your nose?). Is the mixed voice supposed to have more chest, more head, a perfect 50/50 amount? Any more info on this would be great! 5) Last one, I swear. I know the proper singing technique. I know how to breathe correctly, I know how to get rid of tension, all the different parts of the voice, how to sing with strain, etc. I just can't apply them all naturally. I know I need actual vocal lessons, and trust me, I'd love to get them. But my family's going through a lot right now, so it's not a priority at all. I'll have to wait until I'm older most likely. I'll try to keep practicing on my own as much as I can. I still have a lot of problems but maybe I can work through them? Does anyone have more input on this? I don't want to teach myself the wrong habits and damage my voice. I try to do exercises I've learned before from YouTube or my choir teachers. Okay that's it! I wrote a lot I know...I'm sorry to anyone who doesn't like reading lots of paragraphs. Don't feel forced to answer any of the questions, but I would appreciate it if someone did. Thanks everyone! I hope I can make some great friends and learn a lot of great stuff Happy Spring ❤️❤️❤️ **sorry about the editing, it if shows up. I had to fix something because I gave you false info.
  6. It has been pointed to me that one of the issues I have in my singing is my not being able to maintain twang compression.  This is a very interesting thing for me to ponder about.     To me, twang configuration is something that helps me reach high notes with ease.  On the other spectrum is the chest voice, which is pure and so deep.  I have a certain degree of depth in my low voice that I would like to use.     When I approach a song like "Don't stop me now" it creates a tremendous confusion for me.  Freddie starts of with an amazing chest voice and when he goes to "turn it insaaaade outtttt yeeeeeah", it goes pretty high.. Now me, I cannot do the latter part in my chest voice and I need to use twang..    Listen to my attempt at the same song(only the intro)   https://app.box.com/s/sapjggxxuspa12u8cjpbw2ljm4x4da0v   From the beginning till 0:15, I am fully in my chest voice and I do the twang compression for "Turn it inside out".. It feels a little disconnected from my chest voice.. However, if I try to get this portion any deeper, my voice cracks(not everytime, but I don't have consistency)..    My larger question is on use of twang compression.. How does a singer visualize usage of twang.. It is whenever we cross the passagio?  Is it when we are in high head voice?

  9. Hi, this is about my wife. She has not sung a great deal in her life apart from work - she is  a music teacher with B Mus piano.  Started singing a lot more in church. Got a very husky voice, diagnosed with a vocal cyst. This was removed successfully. Had a very slow recovery; then took singing lessons. Now singing without major issues, but has taken to singing everything in her head voice. This naturally gives a different sound. She has fears of damaging her voice again because pushing chest or full voice is something she equates with damage.    I am recording her and would like to see a gradual return of her full voice for some songs or sections. How can she do this correctly? She feels that her break is an issue. Her speaking voice has slowly returned to almost normal since the operation (2 years ago) However I would say it's not the same as it was. There is a very slight husky tone there. Of course this can be good for singing. Just seems for recording that all head voice with her vibrato is not the optimum sound very every song. She is concerned about tuning when using chest voice but I have recordings before the operation and I prefer some of those tracks.   Any advice much appreciated.
  10. Hello all, I come to you with a question that I can't find answered anywhere else in the way I'd like it to be.  I've been singing for a few years now and I am quite happy with my voice.  I have a quite strong chest voice that I am currently stretching into the fourth octave inch by inch. (I am still at the point where I am losing ease and starting to strain by C#4) However, what I strongly desire is to have a beautiful head voice sound that can cover all dynamics from soft and pretty to loud and powerful.  I used to not have any head voice tone whatsoever available to me but about a year back I found I was able to make the smallest strained peep in a head tone around D4 and since then it's been getting easier but still can only phonate at extremely quiet levels.   So, my question is, how does one grow their head voice to get a more resonant tone?  I can sing in head voice comfortably up to E4 at this point and stretch it up to G4 but it's so damn quiet.  What do I have to do to grow this sound so that I have the dynamic control to swell the tone into bigger resonance?  I assumed I just had to keep practicing with it even if it is very quiet but now I am worried that singing so quietly isn't doing anything for the sound's resonance as the volume of my head voice is still just as limited as it was when if first discovered it.  If anyone can give me some reassurance as to how to truly grow the head voice to have strong dynamic control and range I'd most appreciate it.   Here is a clip of what I assume to be my head voice currently sounds like: http://picosong.com/5Zhf/  If I try to increase the volume on this sound at all it turns into crackling noise and cuts out.     Thanks!
