  1. Hi there! It has been requested that I move the said article to the article posts page. Thank you!
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. I do and I think my voice is missing something because it doesn't have air pockets
  7. 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
  8. Good morning Ray, thanks for randomly playing on my shuffle this morning as I drove into the studio. Keeping it real, and reminding me why the hell I started doing this...
  9. Well, first of all Hi everyone im from Chile and how its say in title i need your help, i really wanna know what is my vocal register... i mean im a tenor? im a baritone? bass? you can note, can you tell me what my vocal range based on the audio attached ? what is my colour, etc, and an opinion about the music would be very well received. That's all I gonna waiting for your answers Listo.mp3
  10. 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/
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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..............
  14. 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?
  15. I have seen threads about "the dreaded A4" etc....so I assume it is a well known and common sticking point with well known solutions etc What about the f5-F#5 area? is that any type of "traditional" sticking point? I ask because im hitting a pretty solid wall around that point. IIRC when I first started I could falsetto up around there. Well now I can do a nice connected siren up to around f#5 but thats it...brick wall there lol. I know there is a bridge in that area somewhere, I feel a certain change somewhere around B4 so I assume I have a bridge in that general area. So starting about 3 weeks ago I was able to begin sirening cleanly through that bridge and now I can pretty much take ANY vowel and siren from down low up to right at f5-f#5 without any hiccups or flips etc. Or I can also onset at that high note and bring the note all the way down connected for a vague reference, here is a nice sustained F#5 (1:14, 2:20 etc). This is not a super strong or super twangy note, if anything its pretty light because i was trying to hit it light so I could hold it at a steady level. https://app.box.com/s/57e8hsloikcjn78se2shpt09wz9y1lk4 So that was a decent sustained note on "you" at f#5. The note wasnt super strong, for one reason because I had to hold that one breath etc but also because im simply topped out right there. BUT THATS IT! right now I cant even really squeak any higher lol. So I dont think that would necessarily be a "bridge"....since there is no note to bridge to. Seems more like I just run out of strength right there. Essentially I have been training long sirens almost exclusively, low to high, high to low, just working to smooth out the passagios etc. for me to go higher, is it just a matter now of spending quality time building strength around the d5,d#5,e5 area in order to be able to push on higher up? I havent really worked those notes THAT much, although when i do my sirens from high to low I often onset strongly on those high notes and hold and vibrato them before coming down and when I do supported sirens up I sometimes stop and vibrato that top note (which gets really twangy/ducky) What specific muscles are we talking about here? I feel that I am a fairly strong twanger....if anything I seem to get a bit ducky up high. What about specific onsets....A&R and C&R maybe? What about whistle, should I work on that a bit to at least start getting some squeaks up high? lol pretty sure David C topped out around this nice live A5. In my mind I have a goal of something like a nice Mark Boals C6. Any ideas? thanks, JJ
  16. playing between the 4th and 5th rd of this fight. Sounds like Chaka Khan doing metal lol. any ideas?
  17. Hi guys, I know the question title seems to hold the easiest answer, but bear with me, please. When I manage to find time to practice, I usually do both lip bubbles and tongue trills as part of my warm up, starting a bit lower in my range (chest voice) and going through my bridge to my head voice, always keeping the resonance in my head. What I noticed is I have a much harder time bridging when I'm doing tongue trills because my folds usually come apart many times, even after I'm warmed up, if I don't pay attention. So, I was wondering why this happens to me , and if it is common with other people too. Cheers
  18. This is for my other technique post e.g. asking if this example is mix voice. Please don't critique unless you are looking to answer the question. I tried to keep the high notes from 'releasing', because I think that a rounded mix represents how it would work with legato, where as a released sounding mix may not work in legato phrasing. Sound-clip is amplified to 0db by default. https://soundcloud.com/eisacurry/mix-test/s-DhlV8
  19. Was working on lightening up and relaxing since I was experiencing a lot of tension after not singing/training for a while. Any and all feedback welcome. https://app.box.com/s/fuo1o1g58yyv54tlc2m6i5k9gawb9rxp
  20. So ive worked my headvoice quite a bit over the last several months. Its responded nicely and my upper range has opened up quite a bit. Time to work some belting now. I find that when I want to sing loud in headvoice its not too hard to do, I can get a nice cutting tone etc...but when i try to really go for it in chest voice or maybe right in the bridge, it gets a little constricted, maybe a little muffy. i cant quite make the note as "big" as I want it to be. of course i also know that I simply havent trained that aspect very much...but im gearing up for it now of course, I have seen about 2 dozen definitions of belting etc. I am going to post up 4 examples of singing styles that I like and want to emulate. Would all of these be considered "belting"? (also testing the forum to see if the post eating bug has cleared up lol) are these all clearly belting, or are some just good strong headvoice? of those, David Lee tends to be more chesty. Im realizing lately that dude was a monster singer
  21. Thought some of you might dig this and may have never heard of it. Came out in '96. Essentially Yngwie covered songs he said inspired him as a youth. Personally I dig the guitar playing even though its very self indulgent. I'll take it over "all about dat bass" anyday. Some pretty good singing IMO Singers are Jeff Scott Soto, Mark Boals, and Joe Lynn Turner (and Yngwie on track 4, lol. He does all the lead singing on his latest album) I list the singers in parentheses 1. Carry On Wayward Son (Soto) 2. Pictures of Home (JLT) 3. Gates of Babylon (Soto) 4. Manic Depression (Yngwie) 5. In The Dead of Night (Boals) 6. Mistreated (Soto) 7. The Sails of Charon (Boals) 8. Demon's Eye (JLT) 9. Anthem (Boals) 10. Child In Time (Boals) 11. Spanish Castle Magic (JLT) (Bonus track on Japanese release)
  22. This song has long confounded me. It hangs around the first and second passaggios, going from E4 to A#4 in the first line. Right now, I can sing this in full voice if I sing it in a lowered 5th interval, but that's obviously not ideal. Would falsetto or a light mass phonation be better to replicate this kind of sound?
  23. Hello, to sum it up the title says it all. I am a lyric baritone with a range of G2-A4 (including chest and head voice but not falsetto). Is this the limit of my range or is it possible for me to continue increasing my range? Also an extra question here, I came across a few posts mentioning about increasing high notes through mixed voice. Is pure head voice able to hit higher than mixed voice or can the latter hit higher notes?
  24. Rob Halford, 65 today. Super iconic singer some songs and vids I grew up on This one also happens to have a "model" guitar solo Insane vocals
  25. Today when practicing I came across a visualization that improved my head voice. I imagined (and possibly felt) my jaws coming closer together on the higher notes. I was able to reach high C with this technique. Anyone one else have a visualization similar to this one that works?
