  1. Hey, I'm completely new to this forum and I would look to expand my range and my voice's ability. At the moment I am trying to sing 'Miss You' which is a J pop song by AAA. I'm having some trouble as the males singers of AAA seem to sing so high. The thing that makes me confused is that they do it with absolutely no strain and can do it live comfortably. Have they just got really high voices naturally or is it a strengthened falsetto they are singing it in? If it is then how do they have so much control over it? I'm worried about pushing my voice to hard and damaging it. Another thing to note is that my voice finished breaking about 3 months ago and I am getting better but still don't have complete control. Thank you I appreciate any comments!
  2. Does professional and the vibrant and pleasant vocal tones develop over a long time? I am not currently satisfied with my range and tone especially and I want to be able to develop more and more. How is he able to manipulate his tone so well comparing the first two videos and third video? It's almost as if he's two different singers.. Personal questions: I have been singing for a while now but only recently throughout 2016 I have "Properly practiced" getting rid of my bad habits, fixing tone, pitch, etc. 1. Is it normal that after I started to do so, my range increased VERY FAST. In a span of 4-6 months, I am able now to reach the notes he is singing that otherwise BEFORE I would just choke and sound like I am shouting. Just curious because I am worried I might be destroying my voice by pushing it too hard. There are times before I damaged my voice by improper technique which I guess somehow made my voice range increase as a short cut? is that even possible? I tend to just go all out when I sing right after doing my workouts. Example song I practice is the first video I post below.. ( I am currently using Ken Tamplin's workouts, if that is helpful in any way). ONE IMPORTANT thing to note is that as I go up in pitch and shed my weight, It feels like the TONE of my voice gets higher as well. It's like I sound chesty in the lower ranges then suddenly like little kid in the higher ranges. I also tend to MIMIC singers for a long time... sadly.. is it normal that I am mimicing their style in every different singer? I feel like it doesn't sound "right" if I don't sing with their TONE. 2. As I go higher in pitch, is it normal to feel like something in my mask/palate area to NARROW DOWN? It feels like my mask area is flexing and my chords are very tightly closing. IT ISN'T PAINFUL. Or is this improper technique? Am I suppose to feel COMPLETELY OPEN? When I try to keep it completely open it feels like my voice goes SPLAT and airy and it hurts. Sometimes I feel like I am overwhelmed wondering if I am singing right or am I singing improperly even following his lessons and achieving growth. Anyways heres, the singer. How is his technique? It'll be awesome if there are some veterans or experienced singers to guide a newbie like myself to achieve this versatility in terms of programs and what I need to do. How does everyone here see Ken Tamplin's program?... Thank you!!
  3. I've been practicing my head voice a lot lately! or it might be my falsetto, I don't know. But I've been training it to be strong, and not be airy, and I want to put it to use more. I sometimes try to sing opera songs, but I don't really sing it fully, because I'm a little embarrassed XD, and sometimes it's just too high that I can't sing it without using a closed vowel or something. I'm looking for English songs, but if it's not in English I could still try it. Using the AH and OH vowel I can go up to D#6, but C#6 is more comfortable. EH - C#6, OO - E6/F6, EE - E6. This is my usual range too. These are just some of my favorite videos that showcase the head voice or falsetto. 7:50 - 7:55 Head voice up to C#6 Btw her name is So Hyang and she is awesome :))) Her belts are my favorite. I like to imagine that I'm singing like her....... And I just like singing along the head voice or falsetto parts in this song, and it made me realize how cool falsetto or head voice can be. Which gave me the idea to start this thread. The chorus is just basically sung in falsetto or head voice. The first chorus starts at 0:49. As you can see, they're both in languages that I don't speak XD. I know Ariana Grande does some high falsettos, but they're too hard for me.
  4. I've run into something with one of my newer students, something I've never heard before. He couldn't sing in head voice at all when he first came to me. Now that he's starting to get it, his head voice has two notes! Usually, it's the note he's trying to sing and an undertone that's exactly an octave lower in his chest voice range. I've worked with him for a few months. When he first came to me, he was hyper-compressing and choking his upper range, which kept him from having any head voice notes at all. I've helped him open up a LOT, but the undertone on his head voice has me completely perplexed. We worked on placement, relaxing, dampening, modification, and more. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it isn't. I've gotten him to where he can realize and communicate different sensations very well, but this is one we can't seem to figure out. Over 100 students, and I've never run into this before. Does anyone know what this might be and how to overcome it?
  5. So I would like to ask how to produce the full chesty sustained sound as high as high C (Pavarotti goes even higher): For me the issue is that right at about high C (or just a bit lower) my voice tends to naturally want to turn towards more heady sound. Not quite as heady as Pavarotti's Eb5 in the video, but still a bit heady. The high C in particular seems like it just requires too much of a push to feel good or usable. I do certainly have a darker, heavier voice than Pavarotti, but not a low one by any means (maybe a low tenor or high baritone). The question concerns particularly the long sustained high C, squeaking a short and full one out with less than stellar technique is not that difficult.
  6. I've been having throatiness problems recently. Like, it hurts and I find myself pushing sometimes, when I sing in head voice, or belt too high. It used to not hurt, even when I sing at the end of my range. But now it's hurting. It might be from doing too much vocal slides. Because I've been doing that a lot recently. I used to do it a lot before too. Back then when I started doing it, I started having throat problems too, and I just assumed vocal slides were causing it and I just stopped. And I returned to normal. Also when I went to voice lesson and warmed up, I didn't do any vocal slides and it didn't hurt to sing at the end of my range. But when I went to practice my head voice at home, I did vocal slides, and my voice started hurting again. Any advice on how to cure this? Thanks.
  7. Hey new to the forum here. I am a developing singer(male baritone) and I have noticed how much a stuffy or half-stuffy/runny nose can impact my range. It is nearly impossible for me to get into my mask/nasal resonance when my nostrils are somewhat swollen due to cold weather. My chest voice would sound almost normal, but as I start to place the air into my nasal region, that stuffiness somewhat pushes the air back down, making me push more air through the chest, thus making it very easy to have unpredictable breaks in the voice as opposed to a day when my nose is clear. Ive had this almost all my life and it actually made me talk more out of my mouth with strain during normal conversation. I was wondering if anyone here had procedures done to reduce the size of the turbinates in your nose(removing parts of the membrane or bone) so the passageway is much wider at all times, or if there is another permanant solution? And if anyone had this surgery, how much did it change your singing voice? Thanks!
  8. How you see i go to the Bb2 to the D5 at least, but it's connected my register? I leave the link below link: Test Sound
  9. So the question I have today, is a full mix or head Voice an actual possibility? I've been working on my breath compression for a while now and have had great results, but have one issue with tone. So as far as progression has gone, the first sensation was no longer leaking air, then I went through stretching sensations in the lower area of the throat, which I assumed was related to CT stretching. Then I found that if I adjusted my placement into the lower pharynx, I could actually produce both high and low tones without ever needing forward placement or any of the super forward placement I had during twang training. There has been lots of tonal gains, like the ability to mix tones better and my head voice achieving a very piercy tone instead of the wide falsetto back when I wasn't compressing my breath. But the one point of interest, Is that my head Voice in itself is "piercy", but I hear other people refer to a "mix" tonality as head Voice. So this is where I am getting these doubts. If I approach from my head voice, there's plenty of that piercy...upper harmonic sound but there's not that much chest energy. Where as if I go from the lower approach, there is a mix, but the lower harmonics are still clearly the louder ones. I'm very elated that I can mix tones better, but I also realize that my voice just doesn't like sitting anywhere between head dominant or chest dominant. Is it possible to get this 50/50 sound... at some point in the future. Because if it's not, doesn't that mean singers who are doing a full 50/50 tone are not actually using their chest voice to it's full extent?
  10. Heres a video I did addressing how some vowels work better for others and vice versa.
  11. Hi there! It has been requested that I move the said article to the article posts page. Thank you!
  12. Been working hard on getting my mixes better. This one took about a week. Good learning experience. Not perfect but im somewhat proud of it Approximately 80 tracks involved Its going to be a fairly low quality upload because its an MP3 to start with and then uploaded to an MP3 site On The Inside, scratch full mix #1 EDIT: Rebalanced mix, much better On the Inside, rebalanced mix#1 Enjoy, JJ
  13. Dear All, I recently did a cover of I Will by The Beatles, with the attached Soundcloud link as follows: Your comments and review are absolutely appreciated. Thanks all! Regards sincerely, Tim
  14. Dear all, I am new to this forum. My name is Timothy Christian Liu, and I am an intermediate singer who is working to be an aspiring vocalist. My genre includes folk, acoustic, and a bit of pop, although I went through a bit of classically-based training for a little while. I am glad to have found this forum and encounter a ton of talented singers here, where hopefully we can share and learn from each other. I recently did a few covers of these songs, just for your listening: Here, There And Everywhere (The Beatles) Cover - The Most Recent One I Will (The Beatles) Cover Cake By The Ocean (DNCE) Cover All I Have To Do Is Dream (The Everly Brothers) Cover Time Of Your Life (Green Day) Cover I recorded all the guitars and vocals (lead and backing) on my own. Granted, some of these recordings are done quite a while back when I have not learned to get the best recordings from my mic, so apologies for that. I hope you all enjoy it and comments and feedback are absolutely appreciated! Regards and God bless always, Tim
  15. I had my first lesson with my new vocal teacher last Tuesday. She's excellent. I had several bad habits pointed out, like using the upper part of my diaphragm instead of the lower part, and not "letting go" on high notes. She implemented resonant tracking in the lesson (didn't call it that), and while instructing me on how to do it, I realized I wasn't quite doing it right the whole time. I was still pushing too much. So with, this feedback from a vocal coach, I have greatly freed my range and the general easiness of singing. I can go beyond C5 in a connected head voice (will post relatively soon). I have to admit I was gearing up for disappointment with the coach, but I have been greatly impressed thus far. Moral of the story: (good) vocal coaches help.
  16. I do and I think my voice is missing something because it doesn't have air pockets
  17. Hi everyone i wanna know my vocal register based on my colour (timbre, intensity, etc) i am bass? i am tenor? baritone? There is the link of the file (sorry for my english) https://soundcloud.com/fernando-salvatierra/listo

  20. My favorite song from this great band, has a certain "epic" feel to it, some nice technical details with dynamics on head voice and some more aggressive content on the high range. Everyone that can listen and/or drop me a line about it, thank you! \m/
  21. After returning to college, I have found that I sound good. My tone has improved in such a drastic way that I am shocked. And it now feels so much more fluid and easy. See my progress thread for reference.
  22. I'm trying out for one in a couple of days. Even if I get accepted, I doubt I'll join, because I don't think I'd enjoy singing pop crap.
  23. I am going to be singing at local clubs. Most of the songs on my list are from 80s and before although I do have a few from Rob Thomas, 3 Doors Down, The people in my area are more into Country but I cannot handle hearing too much of that at one time, let alone singing it all night.................. Any suggestions for what you would not mind hearing while drinking a beer or hooking up with that someone special? Or just sitting by yourself trying to get up the courage to approach that someone special? Anything Acoustic flavored from 2000 on will work. Thanks..............
  24. I doubt that this has anything to do with training the voice but there is the possibility. I am a small skinny guy 130 pounds tops all my life. I have not been training aggressively but using more support more twang and cord closure. The issue is this, I have noticed that the soft tissue around my neck is swollen, also under my armpits. Normally my armpits are concave and there was a dip between the collar bones and sides of my neck. These areas are now puffy and convex. Earlier in life while working out with shoulder shrugs(holding weights) and other exercises meant to strengthen the neck and shoulder muscles this also happened. That was expected and looked for. Can just using more aggressive singing and stronger support cause these issues?
