  1. What are some suggestions for exercises and repertoire for helping a student gain strength and control in their lower register? Also suggestions for going between chest voice and mixed voice?
  2. I'm 25, have been casually doing some exercises for years, but only focused on training everyday for the last 2 months. What should I concentrate on FIRST? I would like sincere criticism. I don't think my voice is good atm, so albeit knowing what's working is a good thing I really want help in fixing my **?color?(**my voice just doesn't sound pleasant to me even if not strained and in pitch), my agility in the upper range, and understanding what out of pitch, tone and key mean...cause I haven't figured it out, and I don't know which one I'm doing, although probably all 3! Of course I know a vocal teacher is the best option...but atm, money is short and I don't feel good about getting free sample lesson one after another and not hiring anyone...they need to eat and should waste time with whom is actually going to pay. I'm providing 3 songs that I both like, and each cover a different part of my range, feel free to comment on whatever aspect strikes out more to you!(IT'S PROBABLY VERY LOUD) YM\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\(Your Man-Josh Turner) This one starts and stays on my lower range(I can hit the F2 with focus, but here I only managed to get to the G2) CR1\\\\\\\\\\\\(Country Roads) End verse The most difficult one tbh..I did it because it matches a range close, and passing my bridge, Definitely some wrong pitches there, but I really don't know what to do to ease this part of my voice. LP1\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ LP2\\\\\\\\\\\(Livin on a prayer-Bon Jovi) I provided 2 audios cause although it wasn't as difficult to hit and maintain notes as with the previous song, actually hitting the Eb5 instead of the F5, E5 or even D#5 seemed impossible, it's as if the higher the octave the less precise I get with pitches. Thanks so much for your time!
  3. Constructive criticism would be appreciated. Listen to All I Ask by Adele (COVER) by Bay_Harbor_Butcher_4 on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com/bay_harbor_butcher_4/all-i-ask-by-adele-cover
  4. Hi there ! I would like to get feedbacks on my cover video of Perfect (Ed Sheeran) : voice, quality... https://youtu.be/p8YEbJyRxak Thanks in advance for your feedback T-Wal
  5. I'd love to know your thoughts on my take on this 80's classic.
  6. https://app.box.com/s/x3a12z6qwunnwkt1mmal4g5w3mrvk0z5 Some time ago, I began to love singing, and wanted to get actually good at it. I had some experience with it, but nothing more than choir and I know I can't sing well. I need help, some advices, exercises, and your review. Thank you!
  7. Hi all, apologies for the length of this. I’m a male in my mid 30’s, nearly zero music / singing / performing experience as a youngster. I Decided to take up guitar lessons a couple of years ago, (did a few at 7, gave up) still going, managed to get to grade 3. I’ve never really accompanied my playing with singing (guitar teacher suggested it early on when playing acoustic , I was horrified of the thought of doing that in front of him, aside from the difficulty of multi tasking etc) probably a big reason why I changed to electric. I downloaded a singing course last year and did that for a bit, though a couple of months ago I decided to take some singing lessons even though I’m shy so its a pretty big deal for me. I thought it could help with my musical ear and understanding of theory etc which are novice level, I also have been messing around on a keyboard for that purpose. I’ve always hated my speaking voice as its monotone and I think that shows through with my vocal tone. I’ve had about 8 lessons and I have improved a bit with scales, stretched my range somewhat, improved vocal break etc and my teacher just said she thinks I have a tenor range which I was surprised by as I assumed I’d be a baritone. I know that range doesn’t mean much if you don’t sound good, which is where my point is heading, ..my singing tone just sounds very boring, even if I’m hitting the correct notes, it just sounds dull, boring, uninteresting. Is it my physical makeup the reason for my general sound and if so is there any point in proceeding with practice if this is something that cannot be changed?? I mean I could spend a few years practicing, maybe get good enough to be in a band guitar wise (bit of a pipe dream) and then people would be like jesus with the sound of your voice we wouldn’t even want you to do backing vocals!
  8. I am a Baritone whose voice range is from (F#2) A2-A4(A#4) I can Belt an A4 very comfortably after warming up my voice but that thing does not work with bb4 note give me some tips to belt my bb4 note and my passagio occurs at G4
  9. I’ve been very fascinated by male singers who can sing very high notes for the typical male singer. There are two singers in particular who are lead vocalist in a couple of I find very unique in their vocal style because of their range and vocal fry? It’s honestly too weird to describe. The two singers are Anthony Green (solo artist and Circa Survive) and Tilian Pearson. What I’d like to know is how are they singing like this ? Is this something learned or some sort of difference in their vocal cords? I know that sounds crazy but it sounds so destructive but they have both been singing like this professionally for 15 years and still going strong with the same range and vocal style. Examples: Anthony Green - Tilian Pearson -
  10. Here there is Too good at Goodbyes sang by me i want to know if i sung the pre chorus note in chest voice or in mixed voice please let me know master.mp4
  11. I'm a Male 17 year old with a range of F#2-A#4(D5 in mixed voice) am I Baritone or tenor?
  12. This is a recording from quite a few years ago. I figured that I since I keep commenting on other peoples singing I would give them a chance to pay me back. Good or Bad.
  13. https://soundcloud.com/user-661844416/time-waits-for-no-one-cover This is one of my favorite Freddie songs. I thought I'd do a little more softer songs that required more chest to head transitions and stuff. It's quite the emotional song. Tell me what you think. And what I can improve. Hope you enjoy!
  14. Hi im a Male Baritone who can sing upto G4 with no problems and can go upto bb4 with support yesterday i was able hit the bohemian rhapsody tenor C 3-4 times but today my voice is little raspy and I'm not even able to support G#4 today what's the case?
  15. South African Artist Anna Wolf Wins Prestigious Grand Prize in 2019 Unsigned Only Music Competition Garth Hudson (The Band), Taj Mahal, Aimee Mann, O.A.R., Sanctus Real, Bow Wow, Boney James, Ruthie Foster, and Robert Smith (The Cure) Among Judges September 4, 2019 - -The Unsigned Only Music Competition is pleased to announce its 2019 winners. Unsigned Only is open to all artists who are unsigned to a major record label and gives artists exposure, recognition, and validation for their artistry. A total of $150,000 in cash and prizes is awarded to 38 winners, including an overall Grand Prize winner and a First and Second Place winner in each category. An additional group of Honorable Mentions were also selected. Over the years Unsigned Only has become an important source for discovering new talent. Since its inception in 2012, five Grand Prize winners have been signed to record labels. For the first time in Unsigned Only’s history, the 2019 Grand Prize is awarded to a South African artist, Anna Wolf, for the song “Believer.” Wolf beat out almost 6,000 entries from more than 100 countries to be named the Grand Prize winner. Wolf is truly a compelling and rare artist – a hypnotic performer with passion and style, a singer with hauntingly beautiful vocals, and a songwriter with depth and vulnerability. The winning song, “Believer,” is a powerful track, inspired by Wolf’s desire to break the silence about domestic violence and serves as a personal refusal to become the victim of her circumstance. "I feel such gratitude for this honour,” said Anna Wolf. “The message of ‘Believer” is burnt into every fibre of my being: to let go of expectations, to face my own vulnerabilities and to always keep faith that tomorrow will be the day I get to share my music with the world.” Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Wolf (formerly known as Tailor) has had a celebrated career, amassing hit singles, sold-out shows, South African Music Awards nominations, and a legion of dedicated fans. In 2018, she moved to London, where one night she took her guitar to the bathtub and recorded herself performing “Believer” on her cell phone by stomping her feet against the tub. She sent the demo to producer Pete Boxta Martin, (Missy Elliot, Jessie J, Sugababes), who ended up recording the song. You can still hear some of the noise from the bathtub in the final mix. Apple Music selected the song for four playlists (including Best of the Week, Future Hits, Jump Start and The A-list Alternative) and gave the music video a worldwide release as an exclusive premiere on their platform. More recently, Wolf has released the follow-up single, “Silence,” to acclaimed reviews, dedicating the song to her fans she calls “wolves.” “Anna Wolf is such a phenomenal artist,” said UO founders, Candace Avery and Jim Morgan. “She has so much passion and authenticity, and she needs to be heard. She is an artist who is not afraid to tackle difficult issues and make you feel emotion, and she is one of the most magnetic and inspiring artists we have ever come across.” In addition to winning $20,000 in cash (US) and $40,000 (US) in merchandise and services, Wolf also receives one-on-one mentoring from a group of upper-echelon music industry executives, including: Pete Ganbarg (President of A&R, Atlantic Records); Nick Haussling (Senior VP of A&R, Warner Records); Liz Cohen (A&R, RCA Records); Kim Stephens (President, Forward Entertainment / A&R, Lava Records); David Silbaugh (Talent Buyer, Summerfest); Brinson Strickland (President, Collective Artist Management); and Kristyn Ciani (Talent Buyer, C3 Presents).

  16. Hi, i always wondering my vocal fach. My speaking voice sounds heavy and dopey but in tenor tessitura. I'm very insecure about my voice sounds weird in others ear. But, i'm very love to sing, i can't stop doing this. This is my voice sample This song is easier for me because alot of headvoice. https://soundcloud.com/fadelsawi/shes-gone-moris-morty-monty And, this one is harder because i need to stretch my chest up to A4 (my second passaggio). https://soundcloud.com/fadelsawi/risalah-hati-monty
  17. This is just to show the difference between my "normal" singing , an idea of the "tongue root" being involved in '"Brightening the sound" or increasing the Higher frequencies. The "SOUND" of a low larynx(Adams Apple). Low Larynx + Tongue root "Brightness" and a HIGH Larynx with perhaps Cricoid Tilt. In that order. You can check with whatever program you want to see what formant differences there are if any. I do not have a program for that. The last clip surprised me. I did not get closer to the mic or turn up any volume. All differences are at the level of the vocal folds. I did not change breathing patterns or intensity. I did not try to change any vowels other than lowering my larynx on the two low larynx examples and the last clip I was using a ""Fat Albert" (Bill Cosby Cartoon from the 70s) coordination which is close to swallowing with a high larynx, closed mouth and flat tongue. Possibly what is called a cricoid tilt also. I am not trying to sound good. I am only giving examples. I only tried to sing this a few days ago. This is not to impress anyone. I know the flaws.
  18. Hi. I am really bored being Baritone. I am not sure i'm a Baritone or Not. But i have totally un-trained voice and i have also, fry voice problem by Acidic reflux. I have damaged vocal cords but still i can sing. I don't know i have to chance to become Lyric tenor? Or i am a tenor or baritone? When my voice health before, my vocal range: Full chest: E2 (Very weak and force low note) up to A4-B4 and with force alot C5 Mixed chest: I don't know this technique so i don't know. Falsetto: Max note G5 i only know (But screaming) (And my falsetto is airy and dramatic sounds like very Mickey mouse tone) Head voice: Very weak but max note C5 probably. Here is my some cover tests: This recording when my voice is health... (Old a little bit)

  20. It's been years since I last posted a cover her for review. Hope to receive feedback.
  21. Well, first of all, I must say that I'm not a native speaker, so I may have some mistakes in my writting. I have some questions about the vocal technique of a specific singer. His name is Pall Jenkins, and is the singer of the indie rock band The Black Heart Procession. I've been listening to their music since 8 months or so, and for what I've been able to note, he seems to be a Baritone. The thing is, that his (live) vocal performance is not too good, he doesn't seem to have such a great vocal technique. In their song "The Old Kind Of Summer" he hits multiples A4 (I'm almost sure that that's the note he's singing) but he really struggles a lot, he's basically yelling the note, like if that note is not safe for a baritone like him. And for this reason, he never gets to sing that note live, he changes the pitch and so. Everything is okay to this point. BUT, one day I found this old concert, which took place in 1998, the same year they released their first album, and somehow, he actually hits that A4 and his voice sounds really weird, it changes a lot compared to how he sounded in the record, and I don't know if he's using his chest voice or what, I don't understand why in this specific concert he was able to hit the note. Also, in the next song of the video "Stitched to my heart" he sing the same note again. I don't know if he "lost " those high notes with time, or if he used an incorrect vocal technique to hit those notes in the past, so he stopped doing it. There is also another song of their first record, "Blue Water -Black Heart" where I think he sings an A4 when he says "When I LOST myself" but in this case, he's not strugelling like he did in The Old Kind Of Summer. And again, in the concert I mentioned before, he could sing that note, but in later concerts he changes the pitch in that part, then again, I don't understand what is going on. I'd be really thankful if someone answers my questions, I'll leave the links here. (The song where he struggles to hit the A4, from minute 1:57) (This is the concert where he hits the note and I don't know how is he able to do it, and why he sounds so different, from minute 2:22. Also, in the next song "Stitched to my heart" he sings the same note again, minute 6:54.) (Here they're performing The Old Kind Of Summer 11 years later, and look how he isn't able to sing it correctly, minute 2:09). (And finally, in this other song of their first record I think he's singing A4 in the minute 0:46, when he says "When I lost myself".) (But here he doens't hit the note, minute 0:44).
  22. Hello, I really want to improve my singing, I do not know what exactly to do though, other than singing in general. Please give me advice on what I might be doing wrong or bad. https://soundcloud.com/user-12387201/singing-photograph-ed-sheeran
  23. I have been playing music the last few months with a friend who was former leader in a band I was in years ago. He started doing a solo act and uses a computer with backing tracks that he recorded, some he played all the instruments and some which were downloaded. I have used a drum machine before in other instances where their are only 2 band members so I realize that having some kind of backing track can be beneficial. All the music is already there and even the lead singing and harmonies. A mixer is used to add whatever instruments and vocals we are providing at the time to the prerecorded tracks. He has been told that many bands do this but it seems somewhat wrong to me. I could understand maybe having drums, rhythm guitar and Bass prerecorded for a 2 man band and providing Lead guitar, extra rhythm guitar fills and vocals live, but having everything prerecorded and playing along with it? What are your thoughts? Is this a common practice and I am just living in the past and need to get with the times? My own thoughts are to drop the prerecorded cuts and do everything live with just the two guitars or Bass and guitar. Then you would be judged on your own merits not on recorded music that never changes from day to day.
  24. I've been learning to sing and play and tap dance lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHjn6dck9Fs
  25. Hi, I want to know whats the best way to approach vocally a high not at end of phrase? I mean, I have experimented with holding my breathe and slwoing releasing it and it seems a lot easier and I can control the note better, and also by taking a deep breathe and just hitting the note, but in this case I feel it kind of hits the high note in more of an attack fashion and with less control on my behalf. I have attached a short 7 second audio sample here to help explain more precisely what I am talking about? Look forward to hearing your feedback and thank you in advance. OzMan Voice 113.mp3
