Hey all, It's a hobby of mine to try to figure out the techniques of my favorite singers. For example, how D'angelo uses twang in head voice and falsetto, as well as rasp, how Musiq Soulchild gets his falsetto tone, or how Joe sings certain words in his phrases. I've noticed that there seems to be a lot of conversation about this kind of thing here, so I have another thing to discuss here. Brian Mcknight's singing technique is something I've been trying to figure out for a couple of years. He gets this real smooth tone going, and it's weird because it sounds soft, almost like a whisper, but he can increase volume and retain the quality of it. He is able to float into these quick melismas with ease from there.
