  1. Let's say I can hit any note in Sweet Child O Mine and Paradise City by Guns n Roses. But when I sang Sweet Child O Mine my voice gets some kinda "tired" or "fatigue" it just feels like my throat is dry and when I try to hit high note in the next song Paradise City my vocal chord feels like it's folding to the max and that causes vocal crack. When I take a break and try to hit the note again, I can hit it perfectly. Why is that? Is it because my breath management problem?
  2. I've been gradually learning how to sing quietly and am trying to tone down my approach as I'm a more belt it out kind of guy. Singing quieter seems to facilitate crossing registers much easier, which I like. I'm not using this in my gigs yet because I don't have full mastery. However, I can see some beneficial things and some not so beneficial things that could come out of approaching things this way. I find that when I sing quieter, I have to kind of hold everything in and this causes tension in my neck, jaw, etc. It also means I'm going into a lighter head voice than if I just balls out go for it. So it's a whimpier, quieter tone. However, it's not a loud, yelly, uncontrollable tone. Did you guys have that tension when you learned to do this? I THINK it's just a coordination thing and I may be trying to "prop it up" so it doesn't fall apart. Also, once I'm doing this with my loud band, I think it will be super hard to maintain the quieter approach (I wear in ears). Any thoughts?
  3. Take a listen to this Magnificent bastard! Beautiful tone and control! Tons of messa di voce throughout the song.
  4. Hi Everyone, I'm a bit confused at the moment about vocal range classifications against how singers actually sing and could really do with some clarification if anyone is able to help. I know classifications vary slightly depending on who you talk to, but if I use the ones given on wikipedia as a base (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vocal_range), it says that the top notes for different vocal ranges are: Baritone: G4 Tenor: C5 Contralto: F5 Alto: G5 Mezzo-soprano: A5 If we then compare this to a few songs from different genres and look at the highest notes sung in the chorus: Ed Sheeran - Thinking out loud - A5 Michael Jackson - Man in the mirror - B5 Multiple - Nessun Doruma - B5 Sam Cook - A change is gonna come - G5 Dave Grohl - Best of you - G#5 It seems that almost any song I pick people are singing insanely high with a full toned voice. Is it actually the case that all these people and most people in professional music are an alto or mezzo-soprano? I know that many professional musicians have also had little or no vocal training (Allen Stone is one of my favourite singers and has never had a lesson) and Ed Sheeran actually smokes before singing! So I don't think all these guys have spent years developing their head voice to be able to sing these notes and they do really sound like they're in chest voice. I've also noticed that a lot of them are quite short which may tend to mean they naturally have higher voices (although that might be going off topic a bit!). I would really appreciate some help if anyone can as at the moment it just seems hopeless that I'd ever be able to sing any of these songs. I'd like to think that singing can be learnt, but it seems that these people are just born with high voices. If you'd like to know about my background I had singing lessons on and off for about 5 years with different teachers, then did the singing success programme and am now working through the 4 pillars. Many thanks
  5. Hey guys, I'm new here. I started singing class just 6 months ago and 4 days ago I took for the first time "the stage" to perform Stars from Les Miserables. I'm sorry if I'm shakey sometimes, but it was my first time performing in public and I was really nervous. What do you think?
  6. My vocal instructor insists that belting will destroy your voice. He defines belting as singing above a high C (I think it was...) in the chest register. He has had pretty extensive training, but the internet seems to have a few varying opinions. I just started learning, and would appreciate any information I could get. If you could give examples of specific singers, that would be super helpful.
  7. I recorded this spare-of-the-moment. I didn't have much time, but I wanted to record something so I used my spare hour for this xD Feedback appreciated! Skinny Love
  8. Hi, everyone, Starting in a semi professional quire as a chorister, also, aided with a professionalised gregorian choir in St. Niklaas, Belgium, once and a while. Later on a monk, I had the lead of the second quire in a monastery; Having a broad rockmusic background of the seventies and eighties, A year and a half ago, I started out, studying Post Hardcore Rock music, Alternative also; Since september, I began practising albums of Breaking Benjamin, Black Veil Brides, A Day to Remember, Escape the Fate and Falling in Reverse. I do home recordings, and although circumstances are not favorable to professionalise, I seek financial and professional aid in enhancing my vocalist, mostly my modulating and voice bending capacities; which have proven to deploy at its best outdoors btw; I hope for PROFESSIONAL assessment, advice, proposition for Management etc: Here in addeda a link to my Google Drive, where people can see some of my covers, I will be uploading more ot them eg Devils Choirs, of BVB etc On YouTube You can find my channel beginning with first recording experiences, under my name Peter HumbleLegolassie Donné Dear Sir, Madam, Since childhood I have been incorporated in a classical semi professional cathedral choir in Belgium under Chapel Master Vande Meerssche; for official references on this choir one can advise oneself with the subsidiary authority, the provincial musical examination comittee; because of the steadfast quality of the quire concerts and practice; in my time, the exams were considered unnecessary; I temporarily also and in between, when needed, aided the professional gregrorian choir of St. Niklaas under direction of Professor Ronny Plovie for some performances; Later on, a monk, I was in charge of the second choir of my abbaye; Applying myself, since more then a year and a half, to Post hardcore and Alternative Rocklife from my own autodidact knowledge of seventies and eighties Rock, I began studying modern Pöst Hardcore Rockbands, BVB, Breaking Benjamin, A Day to Remember, Escape the Fate, Falling in Reverse; For a first time, I did pre-audition with FML, Irish Post Hardcore Screamo Rockband. recently, because of lack of particular Screamo technique, I could not go in for auditioning; I have been recording numbers of home recorded covers - apart from one - mainly of Breaking Benjamin, but also of BVB and ADay to Remember; I mostly lack finances to professionalise my studies, and further enhance and refine my vocal skills, in particular voicebending and modulating style; Please find i addenda some covers I did, taking in account the forementioned lack of professionalising possibilities for now. Here in addeda, a link to number of covers on my Google Drive; one of which in a Youth Hostel, the others at home; to be able to asses relevant quality in reigning circumstances: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B3HiNeB9azIMfloxWUxPNEF3NDZmc2k3elkwcG9NRV9sTHRvaUdNU3gwQVpNYW1MYlpJWlE&usp=sharing
  9. I'm not a speech pathologist or speech therapist. I am a master of vocal mechanics specializing in singing and super-fluent voice training for speakers. I train good singers to become great singers and good speakers to become great speakers, (TEDx, The Voice, America's Got Talent, etc.) Did you know that master singers and speakers use VOWEL EMPHASIS, (navigating from vowel to vowel,) to sound amazing? It’s true. Did you know that speakers who are sub-fluent use consonant emphasis, (placing gaps between words, halting sound and stopping airflow?) It's ok, not many people know this. To sing beautifully learn; 1. How to breathe with intention to support your voice. 2. How to create and sustain torso pressurization for support and 3. How to create amplification by sustaining and directing vocal cord vibrations into your sinuses via the front upper teeth, creating resonance (buzzing vibration). All that remains is dealing with words in the song. Words are assembled vowels, (voice box sounds,) and consonants, (non-voicebox sounds,) except for m,n,v and z. Vowels make you sound musical, like friends that will never abandon you. They should be emphasized! Consonants betray the human voice at every turn and contribute to stuttering and every other vocal issue known to man, (polyps, vocal nodes, etc.) Consonant : Con = "Opposed" Sonant = "Sound." I propose that you and I were taught in school that consonants are key to to good diction. False. This is far from the truth. In fact, consonants by design oppose vocal mastery. Any master singer will agree with this. When a singer honors a consonant, the tendency is to communicate by navigating from consonant to consonant. Relying on consonants is horrible for speakers and even worse for singers, as consonant emphasis ensures no tone or melody will appear. Consonants produce neck tension, are percussive, of short duration, sounding like clicks and pops that oppose human vocal production. Consonants create restriction. Restriction is the source of all vocal difficulties including locating and sustaining pitch. When a singer honors vowels, (engaging in diaphragmatic /solar plexus muscle activity to sinus buzzing activity,) he or she creates sustained sounds which open the throat, permitting melodious, resonant tones to occur which serve vocal expression. Aaaahhhh! Delicious! Yuuum! Here is a fun example of the power of vowel emphasis. I hope that you enjoy it! When you sing a phrase, I propose breaking down the vowel elements in the following manner: :-) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) Spell out the phrase words in conventional script: Example: SUMMER TIME! 2) Sound out each vowel sound and replace script vowel letter with an accurate phonetic approximation. Example: SUHHH • MUHHH • TEYE-EYE-EYE • M! 3) Write your phrase in an unbroken style, with NO GAPS between the words: Example: SUHHH - MUHHH - TEYE-EYE-EYE - M! 4) Sing your phrase, exaggerating the vowel sounds (VOWEL EMPHASIS) as an unbroken phrase. Notice how everything you love (resonance, melody and tone) occurs when resting on the vowel. Example: SUHHH-MUHHH-TEYE-EYE-EYE-M! 5) If you run out of air, you are not pressurizing, (conserving air as you sing.) To make your air last longer, fill your lungs completely with air and attempt to hold your breath while singing the phrase. As you create sound, air will escape. Just let it out more slowly, permitting the time to finish your phrase. Removing every silence or gap will force you to navigate from vowel to vowel to vowel, creating continuous resonance and melody. 6) Let's try it (4) times. Are you ready? Take in a breath... Here we go! 1) SUHHH-MUHHH-TEYE-EYE-EYE-M! again... 2) SUHHH-MUHHH-TEYE-EYE-EYE-M! again... 3) SUHHH-MUHHH-TEYE-EYE-EYE-M! again... 4) SUHHH-MUHHH-TEYE-EYE-EYE-M! ...Good work! :-) Vowels are cool, huh?

  10. Hi everyone, I'm just wondering how using vocal fry, witches cackle (i think they're the same thing), etc helps sing notes without as much effort. I'm a fan of Marilyn Manson and whilst the majority of people would say he was a very deep voice, I've noticed that he does hit a lot of higher notes.. they are distorted most of the time though. But the thing I notice with the higher notes (E4 and up) is that they seem easy for him hit. A lot easier than someone really going for it in that area. I'm also a fan of Chad Kroeger from Nickelback (a fan and proud!) and noticed that he also seems to hit a lot of notes E4 and above quite easy. I think a lot of people would say Chad 'pulls chest voice' but I don't so. It seems like it comes from a beefy head voice with no straining and pulling and then the rasp he adds onto it makes it sound even more thicker. I notice with Chad that at the start of many words he uses a vocal fry into the note. This makes me think that vocal fry helps alot with hitting these higher notes without as much tension and in a more relaxed way. I've noticed a lot of NIckelback songs are quite high in their range. The verses even start off quite high and Chad manages to sing them lightly (without pulling / straining) and then belt in the chorus. Even though i'm not a huge fan of Nirvana.. I hear Kurt Cobain using that fry in the chorus of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'... I think.. and I can't imagine Kurt Cobain or even Marilyn Manson really dedicating their time day after day to sing higher with power. So does vocal fry really help with hitting higher notes without as much effort? How does it work exactly? I personally think it's a very powerful head voice with a hell of a lot of cord closure. It's definitely not pulling, pushing 'chest' voice with vowel modifications and all that stuff. Take a listen to the Marilyn Manson song below. Listen to the Chorus. If a 'normal' singer tried to sing the chorus, they'd really have to put some effort in to get there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV1K11dJS8Y
  11. I heard this song on Spotify's New Music Tuesday and really liked it. Then I saw it climbing the charts and I wanted to cover it, enjoy!

English is my third language. Cheers!! https://soundcloud.com/junaid1754/earth-song-michael-jackson_cover
  13. One video can adequately explain what this topic is about: How do you train to maintain such high tessitura? And how much about it is simply down to genetics and vocal fach? I am not even sure if the really top end can be extended (I can only reach about BB5 in falsetto normally, but certainly not as tessitura), so perhaps someone here can enlighten me. I have noticed that a lot of singers of the genre seem to lose the high notes as they grow older. Does anyone here know what that is about? Maybe they could never maintain the high tessitura to begin with, or perhaps their voice deepened... Or maybe they just got lazy... Which do you think it is?

I used the official instrumental that came with the purchase of the album on I-tunes I adore this song and Lyn sings it so gorgeously... ugh >.< I tried really hard with this and hopefully the emotion comes across and people who listen like it I messed up the pronunciation in places, but hopefully it's passable haha.

  18. Hi Friends , This is my first post on themodernvocalistworld forum, I am very excited to view and share the experience with the voice professional. I am a high school student and part time singer, although I am still considering myself as a beginner in the singing world but I have sung since last 5 year. Now I want a standpoint in the music world. I usually go for singing auditions & short time performance on a live show for getting the fame. But sometimes I am feeling bad due to hesitance, on the auditions I lost my rhythm completely. I am taking green tea and some other herbs to make voice perfect. My friend suggests me 'Throat Saver Spray', really I don't know much about it. I found SuperiorVocalHealth selling this herb product. Did anybody used it before, please share experience with me . Thanks in Advance
  19. Marissa and I cover Four Five Seconds by Kanye West and the Boo Boo Dolls, enjoy!
  20. Guys one simple question. when releasing to head and upper pallet placement i have an issue regarding some theoretical and technical info. in other words if i sing in my upper register and im in "head", now if i ppinch my nose should i feel the sound change or not. i think im mistaking nasality with head placement. SO my question would be: if i pinch my nose should the sound change when im trying to sing in head voice or not. My guess is not, but i just figured that out so im not sure xD
  21. Hey guys! I'm looking to get feedback on what to work on with my voice! Any type of feedback would be awesome thank you guys And some videos without microphone
