  1. Here's my backstory.. So my chest voice usually is much stronger than my head voice. I can easily hit a middle C in chest voice and can usually peak at about an A or a Bb above. I want to be able to sing..say a G4 in chest voice, but also be able to sing a G4 in a strong head voice as well at times like when my chest voice is worn out, ya know?. The is problem is is that when I try to build my head voice (which is usually an extremely slow process filled with lots of awkward sounds and vocal fry noises) my chest voice weakens immensely. One day after doing head voice exercises, my chest voice would only go up to about an F3 comfortably and I could only belt to about a D4 but it had no resonance, was not comfortable, and the sound just didn't go anywhere. Very flat, dull, and stale sounding chest voice but yes my head voice was much stronger. On the other hand when I build my chest voice power, my head voice almost completely vanishes. On days where my chest voice easily hits bright resonant middle C's and goes way up to A's, my head voice will be REALLY thin and is usually really hard to control. Many times, on days when my chest voice is strong, it'll be really difficult to initiate head voice tones. Lots of times I'll just get vocal fry before my vocal cords compress into a thin, wimpy, bratty, annoying sounding head voice. So with that said, I came here to ask for help and understanding of my problem so I can fix it. I just want my head voice and chest voice to be equally strong and for me to able to use the two voices interchangeably. Please help thanks.
  2. Hey guys im providing links to 2 voice clips showing what i think is my mixed voice and then my falsetto. Ive heard people say my mix voice is a nasaly/chest falsetto. Could you tell me if thats the case? I doubt myself cause i go high as G#5 in mix voice. and im 17 and a guy and dont know if i should be able to sing that high. In my falseto clip, the first sound is me making an intentional chesty.nasaly falsetto becuase thats what i imagine a nasal falseto sounds like, not when people call my mix voice that. can i please get your opinion? is my mix voice actually a nsasal falseto? Also sorry my falsetto sucks in general, its hard to sing that high without mix, ive never had singing lessons but im lookin for a coach! and sorry my voice cracks at the end of my mix voice clip, its so annoying and i cant help it mix voice falseto Mix voice.wav Falsetto.wav
  3. I just got confused by this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenor. It basically says that tenor is one of the highest male voice types. So that means that the highest is countertenor? But I thought tenor and countertenor has the same range. And the difference is, tenors are singers who sing more in a male range, while countertenors sing more in a female range. It also says that C5 is the tenor high C. But I remember reading somewhere that C6 is the tenor high C. So I'm confused. And I also know that Wikipedia can sometimes be wrong, because anyone can just go on there and write stuff. So I'll just ask this question here. Idk what tag I should put this in, because I have very little singing and voice knowledge, and Idk what a bunch of those tags mean. So I just put it in chest, head, and mixed voice. Because this question includes those stuff
  4. I've been able to sing in a much fuller sounding voice in higher notes (let's say D4 and above?). I think that what I'm doing is more mix than belting. When a high note, let's say an A4, comes out full I'm sometimes surprised with the result while I sing. It's not a fun: "wow, I sound so full in high notes!" but more like "it came out very full compared to what I was expecting, am I off-key?". Usually - the answer is "no". However, when singing, this moment of doubt is problematic and might cause mistakes in the next notes. Anyone ever encountered something like this? ideas on how to deal with it? I'm trying to sing quite a lot to get used to my high register but I didn't manage to enirely resolve this (crazy?) problem...
  5. So as the title says, stuck at F4 and can't go above it. Despite good adduction,twang,and appoggio. Once I hit G4 the balance starts faltering. I can sing above F4 with consistency but there's always some compromise, usually either a thinning with loss in body, or keeping the body but loss in upper ring.
  6. So, I think I'm decent enough now to post a little something. This was one of the first songs I learned to sing and play guitar for, so I think it would be appropriate to post this. Not too hard of a song, but it gives me nice long sustained notes to lock in proper resonance, which I think i accomplished. Without further ado, here it is: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0ph1hS02VcS Enjoy
  7. Cues are still a bit iffy. This was first take. Pretty proud of the direction I'm taking with my singing! Hope you guys enjoy and any constructive criticism is appreciated.
  8. As I have begun to really develop my head voice, I've noticed and been told by others that it is extremely loud. As ronws said, it has "volume that could crack a mountain." Now, I don't think this is a bad thing, as I want to do rock vocals, but could this be a problem in any situations? My mother has said that it's so loud that it's unpleasant to listen to.
  9. Wonderful song and another killer interpretation line from Bruce Dickinson. A real lot of power and details on the phrasing, in special his use of registration on the chorus and verses. Thanks everyone that listens and drops a few words Update: Fixed version with a little more punch to it, thanks @aravindmadis for the help!
  10. Have been meaning to cover this song for a while now. Bruce's tone is amazing in this song. What makes it so difficult is the number of closed vowels, especially in the chorus. Someday I would love to do a better version of the song, especially in the chorus. But for now I am very happy with the outcome for my current level. A big thank you to folks who give this a listen and drop a sentence or two...
  11. When I sing in head voice, sometimes my voice will make two notes at the same time and I don't know why. Btw, I sound very bad in the recording because I have absolutely no head voice control so please understand I don't usually sing this bad. lol. But what exactly is causing the phenomenon?

  12. A couple of days ago, I finally got the coordination down for stable head tones, but I haven't been able to recreate that sensation again. Has anyone else had this kind of problem with their training, and are there methods to pinpoint what I'm doing right and remember how to do it?
  13. how long does it actually take to develop good compression? I have twang and cord adduction, and I've found that the next goes into compression. I found that compression gives my cords a very airy feeling and better tone, but it seems like I can only hit it at certain times in my warmup, so I'm wondering how long it might take to get consistent compression. I can actually sing above the compression, but that doesn't help with tone
  14. "White Rabbit" Tribute! I am proud to share a performance and production of Jefferson Airplane's classic, "White Rabbit". SaraEllen has been training with TVS for about two years. Excellent job SaraEllen! LOVE the curbing vowel resonance, steady embouchure, and "snappy" glottal attacks on the vowels, apart from the interpretation that captures the nuances we coached and discussed. Sounds great, looks great, a kick ass production and worthy achievement! Coach.
  15. Hi, I've been a long time lurker of this forum but I have never actually made an account until now. I'm looking some help with my head voice training. My voice is fully connected throughout my range which spans from Eb2-E5, and I'm able to access my mix all the way up till the highest note of my range. Having said that, I'm not satisfied with my range and I'm wondering if there anyway I can expand my head voice past E5? From E5 onwards no matter how relaxed I try to sing, nothing ever comes out of my mouth and I think like I've hit the "roof" of my range. Can anyone tell me what to do?
  16. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about my singing? What category is it? Or style? Am i tone deaf? What do you think i need to work on? I usually only sing at home. I've never sang in front of other people. I love to sing, and I do it everyday! I'd love to hear your advice or opinions please. Thank You !!!

  17. I haven't been here for a while, so hi. I've wanted to take lessons for a long time, but I haven't really gotten the chance. Instead, I've just been singing my own stuff or covers, and my voice has gotten a lot better (I've gotten quite a few compliments on it). I've developed kind of a belting/baritone voice, I think (kind of like Max Bemis from Say Anything, if you guys are familiar with him). I don't think it's been hurting my vocals, as I don't ever feel sore after doing it (and it's actually the most comfortable way I can hit my highest notes). But I'm still a little worried considering my falsetto range has gone from a comfortable B4 to an A4 that I have to force out (over the past 3 years). I only just turned 23, so I'm assuming it's natural, or maybe I really am damaging my voice. I really do plan to have a vocal coach soon, but is losing your falsetto around this age normal (especially if you weren't really using it much)? Then the normal range thing. My F#4 is much better than it used to be, but it's still hard to hit on some songs. Like I said, I haven't been taking lessons, and I haven't really been doing range exercises either, but I expected to be able to hit at least a G4 by now. Does this mean that F#4 is most likely my peak, or do range exercises make a world of a difference? My goal is to eventually hit an A4 in chest voice, but I'm kind of demotivated at the moment. If I do start taking lessons and doing the normal range exercises as much as possible, how fast will I likely be able to hit a G4? (If it's even possible, or if knowing is even possible) Thanks in advance
  18. Hey everyone, I am stuck with a tiny bit of a dilemma. I play in a cover band in which every member does their share of singing, but while there are some songs I want to sing, I have major problems doing so because I cant hit the notes without going falsetto. I sing a lot of rock and country and while country isn't too much of a problem, I'm starting to hit the proverbial wall with rock. The voice range that I am comfortable singing in is more of a baritone (think Trace Adkins, maybe a touch higher than that.) so when I try to hit notes in songs like This Love by Maroon 5 or even some punk rock songs (Stacy's Mom by Fountains of Wayne or Ohio by Bowling for Soup.) it sounds like my voice is thinning out and my projection just goes away all together unless I sing falsetto but then the tone doesn't fit the song. I know the best way to improve is practice and possibly professional help. But at this current point all I can afford is practice. What I am getting to here, is how can I get my range higher, and not have to sound like my voice is thin or struggling. Are there any exercises or techniques that could help me. Thank you in advance
  19. In light of some recent threads about being stumped on certain notes, I wondered if notes are "unlocked" one at a time, or if they develop in leaps and bounds. From my experience so far, it's been leaps in bounds after indeterminate periods of time, in which seemingly little development occurred; being able to sing up to G#4 with consistency in a relatively short amount of time after I was inconsistent with the beginning of my head voice (E4). What have been your experiences with your vocal progress?
  20. If I do vocal exercises in head voice, and not in chest voice, will that still improve my chest voice? Or are they like 2 different things? If I only practice head voice, only my head voice improves and not my chest voice?
  21. Hello! I am 21 year old guy, completely new to singing,(a decent guitar player) and i have tried to measure my vocal range for few days now. My problem, probably a good thing actually, my voice doesn't ever break when i slide a note up. My lowest note is C2 but as i go up i don't notice a point where something would change, it just goes higher and thinner. My voice ends around F6 where it becomes the worst, squeezed, barely sustained falsetto you would have ever heard. Is there any way to measure where head voice ends and where i enter falsetto.
  22. It started couple of days ago when I tried to sing notes that I sing fine. Those notes became an awful voice... I can't say how it sounded like even on my own language. It was like silent voice mixed with a bit scream. I don't know how my voice damaged or changed in one day. At that day when it happened I was having a little sore throat from the morning to evening after I coughed several times. I think that even if I have caught a cold it can't be the cause of my problem because I it never happened when I had caught a cold(not including times when I had my throat messed up). I'm 18 year old guy and I'm a smoker, I smoke over 1 year what I regret most of all. Also I sing in a band, So guys what do you think will my voice come back in the future? Or please tell me what caused this problem if you can... Thanks in advance.
