  1. Hey guys, so I've come to bit of a dilemma recently. My private vocal coach whom I've seen for almost ten years now always suggested to breathe through the nose. When I studied clasiccal/opera in college I was told to breathe through the mouth. Went to my private voice teacher with this topic and he said that mouth-breath is an old pedagogical school of thought, and breathe through nose is the proper way. What I was told by college professor: Breathe through mouth because it raises the soft palate and you can prepare your mouth/throat for the onset of the coming phrase. What I was told by my private vocal coach: Breathe through nose because through the mouth dehydrates the vocal cords at a faster rate and you with proper technique you'll have the raised soft-palate/prepared throat without needing to open my mouth. Conflicting articles: Nose: https://www.ceenta.com/news-blog/sing-strongly-with-nasal-breathing Mouth: https://www.oxfordsinginglessons.co.uk/breathing-for-singers-is-different-from-normal-breathing/ Which is the proper way? I admit I do feel the mouth breath sets my vocal mechanism up for the onset of the coming note a little better than nose-breath but mouth breathing does dry out the chords and when I have a four hour gig I can't really afford to do that.

  3. Very fun song that has alternating characters, from the musical Jekyll and Hyde: Alternating head voice and chest voice with more compression to get the different vibes. Cheers!
  4. The last part of our tribute, we´ve choosen the epic Rainbow in the Dark, second single Dio released on his solo band, in 1983. Enjoy!!! Long Live Rock n Roll \m/
  5. I have uploaded Old Man River to youtube. How do I get my song reviewed? I am 81 years old and have always had a good voice, but not this good. 1 1/2 years ago I was forced to completely retire and decided to learn how to sing. My wonderful coach has increased my chest vocal range by over 1 octave. I can sing in the quality of voice of Bass Baritone, Baritone, Tenor and mixed Tenor. In Old Man River I sing my Bass Baritone until the ending where I switch to Baritone and end with 1 note of Tenor. I also uploaded And This Is My Beloved but I goofed and the high note was flat so it was deleted.
  6. Hey! I'm having a hard time figuring out the voice i've created. It kinda feels like mixed voice in some degree, but I think it's not mixed voice cause I when I ascend my pitch it goes breathier and not connected to the head voice (it breaks) and feels like it stucks in my throat (not smoothly transition into the head voice area/ in head voice placement). It only sounds like it's in chest and head but if I ascend it stays that way. It doesn't hurt my throat and i don't strain at all when i do it. I'm confused of what to do, am i supposed to train it or let go cause i've tried all the "find your mixed voice" on youtube, it's the same, i ended up at the same spot. Do i have to train my chest voice ? Cuz i'd been training my head voice like more or less than 1 year by singing in head voice. But now i'm training my chest voice. My chest voice range is E2-C#4/D4, C#4-D4 kinda struggling but ok, D#4 straight up shouting. I can sing D#4 if I transition into that voice. My transition point into that voice is around A3 if I sing quietly, it sounds normal until it gets to F4. I've never took a vocal lesson cause i'm broke lmao. What do you guys think I should do ? What do you guys recommend ? Voice 018_sd.m4a

  8. Something I have been thinking on lately. I really see good basic, supported, open throat singing as the real basis for good rock singing. I see a guy like Paul Rodgers being almost the ideal base model. Learn that base and THEN add on or go into other directions such as Plant/Cornell As far as actual difficulty or skill level of various classic rock/metal singers, I see it sort of as follows starting from "easiest" to hardest: (of course, ALL of these guys are great and all of it is hard to get close to!) Paul Rogers-----> Robert Plant, Chris Cornell, Rob Halford, Geoff Tate-----> Bruce Dickinson, Dio My reasoning: Paul Rogers has a great tone and in general he "just sings". He doesnt go out of his way to do anything fancy or overly impressive, yet he does sing with a nice tone through a decent range Plant, Cornell, Halford, Tate. These guys are more varied and may generally have a higher tessitura etc, but some of it isnt THAT hard to sing because it gets into a released type of headvoice sound. Some if it can be emulated without a ton of physical effort Dickinson/Dio. Okay, these guys can be ridiculously hard to emulate. IMO you have to actually have the strength built to sing like these guys. ESPECIALLY Dio. This is like bench pressing 315 lbs. Reading a book or finding a "trick" wont get you to bench 315. You have to put in the time and work up to it ITS HARD TO FIND DECENT COVERS OF DIO, EVEN FROM OTHER PROS!!! That says a lot Some of Dios songs are in a higher range than what u might think....yet he still has that beefiness and somewhat "round" tone. You can tell there is a lot of support. Yet when u see him on live clips it doesnt seem that hard for him. Of course by the time any of us heard of him he was at least up into his 30s with a lot of mileage under his belt so he had that technique and strength down solid So that leads me to this video where the guy shows 2 approaches to singing "Rainbow in the Dark" To my ears, the first version is way closer to Dio. The 2nd version isnt that close So this is the hard part. Can one get that sound WITHOUT the really strong supported style?? Like the guy in the vid said, he was exhausted by the time he got to the 2nd verse etc. Is it then just a matter of one having to build that strength over time?? Here are a couple of covers by guys that do GREAT covers....but they dont get that close to Dio IMO. to my ear, both of these are a little "lighter" than Dio. So therein lies the dilemma. How to get that powerful compressed sound yet stay sort of "round" yet also still be light enough to sing into decent higher range?? Even good old Ken, who promotes strongly supported singing etc....sounds rather strained while attempting the Dio stuff. Doesnt really sound like Dio at all and this guy. Great singer, huge range etc. 2.4 million subs. Doesnt sound anything like Dio though Felipe gets pretty close, which is impressive since he has to fight his natural accent and sing a second language etc. Felipe's tone is pretty warm generally too AFAIK Jorn is about as close as ive heard and even then there are some slight differences. Jorn seems a tiny bit scratchier whereas Dio could be really clean while still sounding huge So was Dio just a mutant or did he just build great strength and control over time? here he is live. assuming this vocal is indeed live lol Im seeing him using decent support and lots of resonance. In other words it seems as if he is pushing a lot of air up with a generally open throat....letting that air find good resonance up in the head etc, as opposed to physically trying to squeeze with the throat. of course I may be totally wrong lol His speaking voice already had that sort of warm round tone to it so maybe he just got lucky and learned to sing with power with his natural round tone Anyone have any ideas or want to discuss?? Peace, JJ
  9. It is sad to say and hear that we have lost another great singer, songwriter and friend. John Prine passed do to complications of the corona virus. John was not in the greatest of health to begin with and the added stress of the virus became too much for his body to handle. If you have heard John singing you may wonder why he would be brought up in a Vocalists forum. From a singers standpoint he was not the best of singers and his voice did not have any special characteristics. His songs are simple, uncomplicated and lack any technical flare. When he sings and writes it is as if he were having a conversation with his best friend. That is the very reason why his songs are special, why he has had a career in music from the time he took a dare on an open mike night at a local pub and captured the hearts of many people around the world. He sings like he is singing to family, he is engaging, funny and he makes you think a little bit. You do not have to be the best singer with the highest notes or the most complicated vocal runs with the perfect intonation , tone and vibrato to be a good singer or entertainer. You just need to have something to say and someone to say it to and communicate the message.
  10. 9 year old Ananya wrote and sang the song. Feedback please.

  13. I've made this quick video in reply to a question about how to make falsetto more "rich" sound, though it is not necessarily just for falsetto: Linking it in here in case it can help others with the same doubt.
  14. Hello, fellow singers! I've chosen this classic tune as my first full-length cover.www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNPIvMNuW54If you like it, please share the video and subscribe to my channel! Thank you all.
  15. I did this and I think I didn't share it here, so here it goes! One of the milestones I set for myself nearly a decade ago :)
  16. I'm most probably a male Baritone with range(A#2) D3-A4(C5) with age 17(voice still changing) I can go past A4 upto C5 but I have to strain very much for that which is not good for voice so any tips to reach that notes without using head voice?
  17. I'm a teenage singer from Bangladesh. Please review my voice & singing style. Should I start a YouTube Channel? https://voca.ro/i8qSuOq7ST3
  18. Hi. I am 20 years old. I born in 27 July 1999. I am un-trained singer. My voice get acid reflux damage since 2017-2018 and it makes maybe a little bit lower but nowadays i try to recover my voice health. Anyways, people calling me as "Baritone" or "High Baritone" and i'm tired because of this Baritone stuff. I always call myself as Dramatic Tenor (Low Tenor) because i think my voice is high pitched for calling as Baritone. But, some people say; "Your voice sounds too heavy to calling you as Tenor.". My voice is really heavy for become a true Tenor? I always want to get light voice timbre like spinto Tenor's at chest voice. I sing "I'll save you" a rock genre song made by Jordan Sweeto. Here is two different version; My voice version; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwzhpiUOGa4 Original version (Jordan Sweeto); https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0diwDG-06Nc My vocal range (Un-trained voice); Chest range; E2 (Very weak as whistle talking but still possible to reach) up to B4 and not barely C5 Falsetto max note: G5 (Sounds like screaming) (Also my falsetto sounds like Mickey mouse and airy) What's a problem? My voice doesn't deserve for calling as Tenor? Is Jordan Sweeto he is Tenor? And i'm Baritone? Look, i always like Tenor type voices. And i don't wanna calling as Baritone anymore. I am really bored about calling Baritone thing. Tenor sounding more light, more sweet and better i think. My voice is more heavier than him?
  19. What are some suggestions for exercises and repertoire for helping a student gain strength and control in their lower register? Also suggestions for going between chest voice and mixed voice?
  20. I'm 25, have been casually doing some exercises for years, but only focused on training everyday for the last 2 months. What should I concentrate on FIRST? I would like sincere criticism. I don't think my voice is good atm, so albeit knowing what's working is a good thing I really want help in fixing my **?color?(**my voice just doesn't sound pleasant to me even if not strained and in pitch), my agility in the upper range, and understanding what out of pitch, tone and key mean...cause I haven't figured it out, and I don't know which one I'm doing, although probably all 3! Of course I know a vocal teacher is the best option...but atm, money is short and I don't feel good about getting free sample lesson one after another and not hiring anyone...they need to eat and should waste time with whom is actually going to pay. I'm providing 3 songs that I both like, and each cover a different part of my range, feel free to comment on whatever aspect strikes out more to you!(IT'S PROBABLY VERY LOUD) YM\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\(Your Man-Josh Turner) This one starts and stays on my lower range(I can hit the F2 with focus, but here I only managed to get to the G2) CR1\\\\\\\\\\\\(Country Roads) End verse The most difficult one tbh..I did it because it matches a range close, and passing my bridge, Definitely some wrong pitches there, but I really don't know what to do to ease this part of my voice. LP1\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ LP2\\\\\\\\\\\(Livin on a prayer-Bon Jovi) I provided 2 audios cause although it wasn't as difficult to hit and maintain notes as with the previous song, actually hitting the Eb5 instead of the F5, E5 or even D#5 seemed impossible, it's as if the higher the octave the less precise I get with pitches. Thanks so much for your time!
  21. Constructive criticism would be appreciated. Listen to All I Ask by Adele (COVER) by Bay_Harbor_Butcher_4 on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com/bay_harbor_butcher_4/all-i-ask-by-adele-cover
