  1. It's been years since I last posted a cover her for review. Hope to receive feedback.
  2. Hey guys. So I've been singing for some years now. I'm classicaly trained, theoretically a tenor, but I could never manage to understand and make the adjustments to go higher than F4 without breaking into M2 or straining a lot. Last year I started reading a lot about voice physiology and learning contemporary singing technique. Now I can go sometimes even up to G5 (not a pretty singable tone yet, but it's there). From Bb4 up I can somehow manage a lighter sound that doesn't sound like M2, but between E4 and A4 I can only do full-on belting or something lighter but with a lot of constriction (arytenoids I guess). I'm trying to achieve a lighter and freer M1 (mixed?) sound in that range, and so I've been reading and watching many YouTube videos on that, but I'm very confused with the way scientists and vocal coaches differently name the registers and stuff, so it's being hard to clearly understand what they mean and choose a way to approach the matter. I have to say that I personally think the names Chest, Head and Mixed Voice are terrible and extremely misleading, and they did nothing but prevent me from moving forward. Understanding the vibratory mechanisms and the filter/resonance adjustments is what really is helping me evolve. And although I understand a lot of people don't benefit from scientific explanations, it's really works for me. From what I understand, SCIENTIFICALLY mixed voice can be either: 1. M1 with less vocalis contraction and more nasal airflow/rhinopharyngeal resonance, as used by man and women in contemporary music and by men in high notes in classical. 2. M2 with more rhinopharyngeal resonance and twang in the higher range in contemporary singing. 3. M2 with more rhinopharyngeal resonance in the female first passaggio in classical. And head voice can refer to: 1. any sound in M2 2. only M2 with cartilaginous adduction Now I'm really confused with how vocal coaches use the terms. For me, the sound of what many demonstrate as Head voice - specially those who don't count falsetto as Head voice - is not M2 at all, but rather my first description of Mixed voice (less compressed M1 with rhinopharyngeal resonance). Which makes me think, when they say head voice they are referring mainly to head resonance (rhinopharynx) and not to the vibratory mechanism M2. So although many exercises for bridging/mixing/blending DO go from M1 to M2, and this is of course also used in actual singing, the "bridging" that happens most of the time in the mid-high range is simply the adjustments to go from M1 with oral resonance to M1 with nasal resonance, to allow the laryngeal tilt, less compression and lower subglottal pressure without breaking into M2. I'm still beginning in the science stuff, does anyone with more knowledge in that area agrees, disagrees or have any other thoughts on the subject and on how I could approach a softer sound between E4 and A4?
  3. I've included 2 videos. Eden turn the page is to show my struggles and little wonders is to show strengths. I cant say i know what im doing technically and that's what i need y'alls help for. If there's anyone who can help me understand what I'm doing both right and wrong itd be so helpful. Thank you all for taking the time. QuesoMcpeso
  4. I haven't been doing covers on Smule recently. Hallelujah https://www.smule.com/recording/lisa-lois-hallelujah/1011915964_2318170316 Stone Cold https://www.smule.com/recording/demi-lovato-stone-cold/593331709_2312724812
  5. Hello guys. Bay is back. It's been 3 years since my last post. Got busy. Lol https://soundcloud.com/bay_harbor_butcher_4/all-i-ask-by-adele-cover
  6. Hi all, I've always loved to sing, but over a month or so I've began lessons and been using the app "Vanido" to try and improve my intonation, which has always been my problem. As such, could I please have some feedback on my cover of Julio Iglesias' "Begin the Beguine," with particular attention to my pitch? Of course, comments on tone and everything else is very welcome too! The playback is a karaoke version from YouTube, and I added some reverb in GarageBand. Thanks so much for your help on my singing journey
  7. Hello guys, that is my cover of true color by justim timber lake.. i want to ask this question? What more to improve? Did i reach my maximum potential? is the timbre of my voice is good enough? I want you to be "BRUTALY" honest with me please
  8. Hey guys I haven't made video's in a while I have had some major back issues (20 years) that really has made it tough to gig the last few months and sing and work. But I had Emergency back surgery Friday and I'm looking forward to a very quick recovery. So my teaching is on hold for a couple weeks. So while I was hopped up on pain pills I decided to make a vid lol. Hope you like it.. see ya soon peace
  9. Hey all, I had been thinking about adding a few new genres or categories to our challenge possibilities. Bono brought it up the other day, so I know I'm not alone now. I'm wondering who else is thinking about this. I've been thinking about certain specialty challenges. These are ones where everybody doesn't have to do the same song. For example, with 4th of July approaching, here in the United States, and this being an international forum, I thought about the idea of a National challenge, where everybody picks a song that has to do with the country they live in. For example, I might do something like Georgia by Ray Charles. Maybe a celebration challenge that focuses on holidays would be cool too. Bono already brought up musicals. Does anybody else have any ideas?
  10. Another challenge that people wanted to do, The Nationals Challenge! In this challenge, we will sing songs about our countries and songs about the places within. It's great for people to sing their national anthems but lets challenge ourselves and not just select short songs.
  11. It's that time of the year! A number of artists have just put out Holiday-themed albums, such as R. Kelly, The Rascal Flatts and Neil Diamond. Christmas, as well as some other holidays, are now upon us. There are literally tons of songs that can be sung here. So, who would be up for a Holiday Season challenge?
  12. As we just about come up on the halfway point of 2016, we've unfortunately lost several big names in music. Prince, David Bowie, and Maurice White of Earth, Wind and Fire, just to name a few. This is a challenge where we will challenge ourselves by selecting a song from the catalog of one of these great artists and attempting to sing it ourselves. The only requirement for this challenge is that the song must be by somebody who passed away in 2016. As far as time limits for this one goes, I was thinking about 45 days but suggestions are welcome.
  13. I'm now remembering that, some months ago, we were working on voting for a song for one of our new genre challenges. One song seemed to get a lot of suggestions, but because of the selection process, it did not get chosen. Things must be kept uniform and fair, but the most important thing that goes on here is that we choose the challenge songs that everybody wants to sing. With that being said, who would still be up for an I Can't Make You Love me Challenge?
  14. Opened a topic to discuss the next challenge. The consensus seemed to be most wanted either the Nationals Challenge (Songs about your country or places within your country) or the Late Legends Challenge (Tribute challenge to some of the late greats we lost in 2016, ex. Prince, David Bowie and others, by choosing a song from on of these artists catalogs) Let's vote for 3 days and get going!
  15. At this point, we've done several genre-based challenges, where we voted on a genre, then voted on a song from that genre. We've also started doing non-genre-based themed challenges, like the Lover's Challenge from December, wherein any song involving love could be selected, and the more recent Artist challenge, where we voted on an artist and selected any song in that artist's catalog. Where does everybody want to go next? I've been thinking for a while about doing a National Challenge, where we choose songs about our country or places within our country. I think I introduced that idea back in November, and with Memorial Day coming up in the states, I was reminded.
  16. It's Bee Gees Challenge! Select a challenging Bee Gees song, of your choice, and cover that thing. Post your attempt in here! This one will go to March 17th.
  17. Randomly got the idea to try to do the first cover I posted on here again. I posted it about one year ago, exactly. Wanted to see if anybody could see any improvements here and anything that needs work. I did "Ooh Baby Baby" by Smokey Robinson and The Miracles. Here's the original: http://picosong.com/Edtv/ Here's me giving it another shot. Differences between the first one I posted and this one is that I held a mic closer to my mouth, as opposed to singing into my phone's mic, which was sitting a few feet away, on the counter. Also, I sang the entire thing here. http://picosong.com/EdDj/
  18. A few people have brought up the idea of doing an artist-themed challenge. This is going to be another one with some freedom. The artist will be voted on, but you can choose any song from that artist. Somebody suggested a Weeknd Challenge and somebody else suggested an Adele challenge. In this topic, lets nominate artists for this challenge, for the next 5 days. Each participant can nominate two people. Afterwards, we will vote.
  19. Voting is open for 5 days. Here we go!
  20. About a week ago, I said we'd be having several challenges running at the same time. Several people had hinted in the past that they wanted this one. Leaving this here to be filled in a little later (probably tonight).
  21. The voters have it! This is the Lover's challenge! The cool thing about this challenge is that there's only one constant here; and it's that the subject matter needs to be about love. Besides that, you can choose to sing any song you desire. Let's run this challenge until January 17th. Looking for instrumentals to sing over? Check out the link below. If, for any reason, you feel this challenge isn't for you, don't worry. There will be more, on the way, before this one has run it's course. Let's get singing.
  22. It's time to shake up the challenges. This time, we won't be deciding on one genre, and then deciding on one song to sing. We'll be voting on a theme, and everyone will get to decide whatever song they want to sing. If you've got any trouble deciding, I'll be here to help you with that. As usual, people are encouraged to create the best recording they can make. Acapella is an option, if it really comes down to that, but production is a very valuable skill. A necessary skill, especially if you're serious about a music career. Several of us, here on the forum, are trying to learn this, so join us, and we'll all talk about it.. Voting will be open for about 5 days, because we won't be voting on songs to be sung. Those are completely up to you.
