  2. 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
  3. 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? What did you discover? And what was your experience like? - Guy Monroe http://hotmicmethod.com/ http://greatspeakertraining.com/
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. Hey guys, here's my cover of Earth Song by Michael Jackson! Please tell me of your opinions, what I'm doing right and wrong, the type of voice you think I am, whether you'd like to hear me singing something else etc I'm a 19 year old untrained amateur singer from Pakistan. English is my third language. Cheers!! https://soundcloud.com/junaid1754/earth-song-michael-jackson_cover
  7. 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?
  8. Hi! I just wanted to share a singer from Croatia with you. He has a beautiful tone to his voice and a great sense of music. Just tought some might get inspiration.

  9. This is my cover of Lyn's beautiful track - Miss You... Crying (보고 싶어...운다) All vocals were me. 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.
  10. I go from f#2 up to f#5 then a slight squeaky whistle at f#6. I thought it sounded really cool so im sharing it on the forum. IMG_5197.mp3
  11. Hello I'm new here. I'd like you to say a few words about my vocal cover. http://www29.zippyshare.com/v/H12A7Wv8/file.html *Remamber to choose "hd" in right upper corner.
  12. 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
  13. Marissa and I cover Four Five Seconds by Kanye West and the Boo Boo Dolls, enjoy!
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 2 voices. 5 octaves. 1 guitar. 4 ears. 2 hairstyles. Our new cover of Sugar. Watch it now.
  17. Hello! Just joined the forum! Great to see a thriving community! I am a beginner singer! I had around about 5 lessons late last year but had to stop them because of prices. Im hoping someone can listen to me sing the last chorus in Adele's hometown glory! I am really struggling with the falsetto notes. Im not sure if they're in tune or sound fitting with the rest!? Please bare in mind; I could not sing a note in tune before lessons!!! Also, this was recorded on my mobile so I apologise for the quality. It is acapella as well. I get really conscious when singing along to music. I know you can't judge me properly with acapella, but is it listenable? If it sounds ok, I'll repost with music. It isn't in the original key also, that is too low for me. Thanks for your time!
  18. Readers of my posts know that Freddie Mercury is my favorite singer. I have always wanted to sing Queen songs(even if I don't do a great job of them :)) I have done a couple of takes of this very song with mixed, mostly average results. I am confident enough in my singing and my technique to post an update. Please comment specifically if possible on the belting/aggressive portions of the song. Also to me the chorus sounds a bit too sharp(piercing to listen to and not in a good way). Not sure if this is a singing technique issue or an error in mixing(or both). https://app.box.com/s/59r4g7q8tptndur6odplhf4layn69exc
  19. For me it was weak C8 in whistle register.In full voice(If we can call that full voice) screamy strained Eb6 with touch to E6.The lowest I ever measured was E1 in fry day after 10 beers.
  20. Hey guys, started another take on yet another song. comments/critiques/pointers will be appreciated Thanks. You Know You're Right. http://www.reverbnation.com/grungemaniac1/songs
  21. Lately, we are hearing more and more about people’s vocal tragediesSome of them have been suffering for years with the loss of their regular voice, speaking and/or singing. Majority of them went to all kinds of doctors and specialists and have been diagnosed with all kinds of health problems related or, most of the times, not related to their vocal performance. The loss of their original speaking and/or singing voice had been blamed on all kinds of the person’s internal health. Yes, granted some of the internal health problems may be related to the quality of the voice. For example: If the person practicing an unhealthy diet i.e. consumes a lot of dairy products, that person most likely will possess a lot of mucus everywhere in the body, vocal anatomy included. If the person eats a lot of acidic products like tomatoes, oranges, red meats and others, no doubts this person will suffer from acid reflux. That said, if they do have a problem with their range and projection of their voice, naturally, their voice is drawn to the lower position, thus it is prone to meet the gastric acid which, in turn, will begin to burn the vocal cords. That said, the inner health and outer fitness would definitely help with whichever vocal problems and/or issues the person may experience. The cleaner and more fit the physical body is, the stronger and more vibrant the persons’ mind will be also. The Vocal Science ™ method requires the lift of the voice to the set of the facial muscles/cavities to release the pressure of the sound from the vocal box and vocal cords, per say. If you visualize a ballerina trying to jump taking off of a thick carpet, you can imagine that not only she, most likely, will injure her ankle or knee, but also would never acquire a needed height to accomplish the pas de deux. That said, if the vocal cords are covered with mucus and the bottom of the throat is full of gastric acid, to lift the sound off of “that ground” could become quite difficult. For that, I am using natural herbs and remedies to clean up the surface of the vocal box to be able to achieve the lift of the voice with the support by the abdominal muscles. So the flora of the throat becomes clean and begins its healing. The doctors usually “bombard” their clients with a whole bunch of scary sounding definitions and diagnosis. The clients usually tell me that they have no idea how to read, let alone understand their medical transcriptions/reports. It is usually extremely over-exaggerated and, for the longest time, I could not understand why. One of my new clients reports suggesting that he has had preoperative and postoperative care. In reality, the person never had undergone any vocal surgery whatsoever. In the not so very distant past, I had a person who worked as a medical assistant and she advised me that every move the doctor makes has a special code. For example: If the doctor checks your blood pressure, he charges the insurance, (here in Canada), $200.00. I am, sure the ENT specialists are charging for all of their checkups, scopes, and etc.. So my assumption is that the more the doctor writes, the more he is able to charge either the insurance or the person individually. This is just my general subjective opinion. Take it for what it is. Sometimes, in fact, “they are right on the money” and they produce the right diagnosis, but they still do not offer, or even suggest, any meaningful help to the sufferer. In majority of cases, the problem is mechanical, but very often coupled with the physical and emotional state of the individual. So my duty is to dissect the problem into pieces and work on each piece individually and collectively. That’s what I call forensic analysis and expertise, and yes, it is very applicable to any voice issues.
  22. Hey guys I'm sure you're absolutely sick of hearing this song but even though I have a lot of good exercises and I do my sirens and staccatos still I am nowhere near this seamless. I feel almost ashamed of my less abilities and sometimes believe I will never be able to sing like this. The korean k-pop stars take training very serious and sometimes do not debut their students for many years. How is it possible for him to sing like this seamlessly without barely any audible break?
  23. I share vocals with a singer in my band. She has a tendency to slip into this mode of singing that I can only describe as sounding akin to the Peewee Herman character. I want to discuss this with her, but I'm trying to come up with a more descriptive (and less offensive) way to deliver this criticism than to tell her she sounds like Peewee Herman. I would also like to help her develop some techniques to steer her away from this voice. The best way to imitate the sound I'm describing is to raise the very back of the soft palate, including the uvula, and use a head voice. It gives a somewhat nasal-y quality to the voice, but not your standard congested nasal sound. More of a, well... Peewee Herman sound. I hope someone understands what I'm talking about. Can anyone offer any hints on what this sound/vocal quality might be called, or how to combat natural tendencies to slip into this voice? If I just knew what it was called I could do the research myself. But I get nowhere googling "peewee herman voice". Thanks a bunch! -jbg
  24. Hi, everyone. I'm from Italy and I've just become a member of this community. My hope is to find great advice here, and I am sure I'll learn a lot of new things. People usually say I'm a good singer, but I have never had a formal singing education. However, two weeks ago, I bought a good program and immediately discovered interesting facts about voice and technique. Before starting this program: 1) I considered to be falsetto what in reality is head voice; 2) I tried to reach high chest voice believing that head voice/falsetto was a trick for incompetent people. Instead, if I've understood correctly, a singer should move from chest voice to head voice when necessary, so that higher notes are produced with that "fluty" and effortless tone. I think I've succeded in finding my head voice, because I've watched a lot of clear tutorials, but now I need your help. Let's take Iris by Goo Goo Dolls as an example. Suppose to play and sing that song in D major, which should be the original tonality. In the chorus, the singer goes pretty high, but I don't think he uses his head voice: I can't hear that delicate sound similar to falsetto, but an intense, chesty, "angry" shout, we can say. Have I interpreted correctly or not? If so, using only head voice to sing higher shouldn't be considered restrictive? I've listened to male head voice professional examples: in every example head voice appears clearly as something delicate, feminine, we can say, so how can it suit every performance with high notes? Thanks very much.
  25. Hello everyone, lovely community here I've been lurking occasionally, though I ended up having to create an account just to see posts so I decided... eh why not start posting too? I've always been wondering something about Fabio Lione's voice. For those who don't know, he's an Italian vocalist who fronts mostly power metal bands like Rhapsody Of Fire, Vision Divine and more recently, Angra. Fabio Lione has usually been remembered for his fairly flamboyant style, especially his very wide vibratos (which he used to great extent on every other Rhapsody Of Fire song). This was quite a contrast from the approach used by his Angra predecessors, namely Andre Matos and Edu Falaschi, both of whom were far more straightforward (fewer bells and whistles, so to speak). That said, Fabio did a pretty good job filling those shoes. Thus, I was quite puzzled when I heard clips of how Fabio Lione would sing the really high notes in some of the older Angra songs. I'll raise the following clips for the song, 'Angels Cry', for reference. The notes (they're all C#5s??) in particular are highlighted with timestamps: 1.) Andre Matos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68iuK4QxX40 A - 1:35 B - 5:30 2.) Edu Falaschi A - 1:43 B - none (audience singing) 3.) Fabio Lione A - 2:26 B - 6:19 If you paid attention to how Andre and Edu sang the C#5s as opposed to how Fabio sings it, there seems to be a very large change in tone when Fabio sings it. I was guessing it was whistle register but that seemed a little weird, could it be a stylistic decision to just jump straight to a C#6 in whistle? It's not like he can't handle C#5 notes - the chorus is full of them and he can handle those. There are some other examples with other songs from the same period ('Carry On' comes to mind, with the F5-G#5s at the end), though good clips for all 3 singers for that song are a little hard to come by at the moment. In general, we rarely hear him sing notes in the higher 5th octave ranges, and I'm wondering if there's a reason for that. What do you guys think? Edit: Not sure why the the first link doesn't embed, hmm.
