  1. Questions: 1. Can fapping daily for a long time effect your voice from the hormones and all the technical stuff that happens? Can it (in a process) change your pitch a little, help (or) go against expansion of the vocal range, and can it make the voice more "unreliable" and less solid (especially on the notes that close to the end of your range) ? 2. I need a help about finding a couple of formats for singing exercises. (I've done a lot of searching and nobody helped me please) (All of them are by Michael Jackson) + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=1m54s (on 1:54) - Michael is doing a "ohh" with a lot of different notes that seem to work more on the flexible side (correct me if I'm wrong).. Can you please help me find the format ? to post here notes as an example from that exercise from the video so I can learn the format and use this for my range. * and the same (^) with the four exercises below please. + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=6m47s (on 6:47) Michael is doing "ma" I could understand that 3 Major Notes UP - 4 Major Notes is on MAX - and 3 Major Notes DOWN (correct me if I'm wrong). + the same with https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=11m53s (on 11:53) with the "no". + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=21m1s (on 21:01) with the "oh". + https://youtu.be/z2HSWsqVS8k?t=45m22s (on 45:22) with the "oh" . It's a pretty hard work (I Guess) to find these formats, I just want you to know that I really appreciate your help ! 3. What exercise would you recommend to help with the flexibility in the higher notes, but those who are more close to the end of the range. what exercise would make them more "reliable" or it's just that you need to expand your range more to make them more central and reliable. 4. (EDIT) Could you please give me a way of how to bridge through the passaggio ? Thank you all !!
  2. If you're doing it wrong. I tried for years to match these guys who were up in tenor range, because a lot of guys I listened to were tenors. I couldn't do it without flipping into falsetto and ending up with a completely different tone. I finally start working with somebody who knows and not only do I find I'm getting up in that range, I find out that I'm a tenor! After believing for 8 years that I'm a baritone. I got several opinions on that. Some thought I was a baritone, some weren't sure. It just goes to show that it doesn't matter how many times you do something or how hard you try if you're doing it wrong. Failure does not mean you can't do something. An important lesson.

  5. WhatsUp Guys, I want to know what is it that really actually happening to the singing voice and the high notes when singing publicly & spontaneously I feel like These days we live in a Technology world that is near taking over our social life as human beings lol so i just thought we should be more social to each other. And an idea came up in my head, why not Practicing my vocals in a such enviroment! Remember this is just a part of my Training Routine, so i'm glad if you give me alot of feedback! Mash up with all the feedbacks you can get! Peace!

  7. 2 years ago I caught a cold and developed laryngitis as a result.. Due to my ignorance at the time, even tho I could not talk, I still managed to yell.. I remember exactly how it felt when I would do this.. like I was forcing my voice up, past my chest and throat, and through, from the top of my head.. You can only imagine the damage I caused doing that.. well, fast forward and to make a long story short, I was diagnosed by an ENT with muscle tension dysphonia. He placed me on 8 weeks vocal therapy and in that time I had improved greatly (90-95% back normal) .. The tension began to return after about three months and this time I had "uneven vocal folds", indicating the begining of vocal nodules.. so back for another 12 weeks of therapy I went, next follow-up and the nodules were gone.. However this time around my voice has not returned to normal and it's been about 6 weeks now post follow-up. I've noticed I can't even seem to access my head voice anymore . It feels as if I have a board in my head sitting *above my nose but resting under my eyes * and it's physically blocking me from reaching that point (just an visual) this is worrying to me because the head voice, all my life, has been a comfortable and frequent resonance for me. My chest voice is fine and my mixed voice is extremely hard to maintain without breaks and I have no range whatsoever.. Is it possible to "blow out" your head voice ? Even with pitch slides and other resonance and vocal stretching exercises, the effort seems very discouraging.. What sounds like could be my "head voice", really just sounds "broken" .
  8. Hi there folks! I just joined today, my name is Liza Jean (stage name, granted), and I sing for a KC-based rock band. I'm an alto/mezzo and my chest range is roughly F3 to D5, and my head voice is about Eb5 to G5. That being said, I can belt an Eb5 in chest, but it comes and goes, as that area is where my vocal break sits. So I guess I'm here with a few questions! I take singing lessons currently, but I'm pretty certain my teacher doesn't have formal training in the sense of knowing the pieces of the vocal chords. She has her own solo project and usually teaches children, and while we've made some great progress with where my voice was last year, I'm still hitting some roadblocks that I'm not sure how to explain, and that neither of us are sure how to overcome. So I thought I would turn to y'all! So without further ado, I'll try to word these in a way that makes sense: 1. When I initially started working on strengthening my head voice, I did by using a lot of nasal-y 'nya' vocalizing. However, I've found fairly recently that this seems to create a lot of tension in the back of my mouth/back of my tongue. When I sing in head voice, it's hard to not fall into it, and if you put your thumbs under your jaw and right at the back where it curves up, that soft space always feels 'weird' when I sing head voice. The best way I can describe it is like someone's stuffed cotton into the space or similar. I'm pretty sure it's tongue tension but I'm not positive. Thoughts? 2. My chest voice is very deep-sounding in tambre, and pretty warm. Even when I belt, there's still a decent richness to the tone, but once I get into head voice, I lose it. My upper register sounds like a completely different voice: it's a little thin in tambre (but not breathy), very bright, and just generally not what I want. I'd love to bring some of the richness of my chest voice into my head voice, but I'm not sure how to. 3. The dreaded vocal break. I definitely have it, and it's very noticeable. What are some good exercises to smooth this out? It tends to sound a bit like a yodel, but there's still a patch of graveliness when I make the switch, even if I slow down the exercise I'm doing. Being able to switch seamlessly between my two registers would be absolutely ideal! 4. In general, I tend to break fairly easily in my head voice. I know this is probably a matter of strengthening my breath support, but in particular words that start with a vowel or glottal stop have a high tendency to break and/or crack, and so far my only real method is to just very slowly go through the vowels while in my head voice, but I'd love if there was a better set of exercises I could do. Songs I tend to sing for practice on these things include Stone Cold (Demi Lovato), Praying (Kesha), and more recently Who You Are (Jessie J). They all have a lot of runs and switching between the registers, and I'd love to be able to sing them and have my voice sound like one seamless, well-mixed register. Any advice is appreciated! (And if I can, I'll try and get a vocal recording up one of these days if it's easier to hear what I'm talking about.) -LJ

    About whistle notes.

    I’m a male and I’m 17 (it is relevant but not really) and I was singing in the fifth octave, I can hit about an F#5 but after that I have to really try to hit the notes. At one point I thought I wonder how high I can go so I just started ascending until my notes were basically inaudible at G5. Until out of nowhere I hit a C6. Then later I managed to go up to G6. What the heck happened. Should I try to go lower/higher? Or this just a freak anomaly?

  12. Hey. I'm thinking about injecting testoreone to cure my depression. The only thing that keeps me from injecting is the fear that my voice might have a negative impact from it. I'm already a baritone (sadly), which means i can reach low notes pretty easily without any effort but hitting any note above D4 in chest voice takes a lot of effort. It's like climbing a very high mountain. My voice almost means more to me than my life however my lack of testoreone is ruining my life. So what should i do? Should i sacrifice my life or should i sacrifice my voice?
  13. So, i haven't noticed any changes in my normal voice. I can still sing the lower notes the way i could sing them before. However when i'm trying to sing high, my notes begin to sound hoarse a lot of the times. Now i'm wondering if this is the result of an overuse of the voice, lack of experience with high notes or if this actually might be a sign of vocal damage? I only started experiencing with higher notes at the beginning of the years. i did do a relative vocal rest for a few days, it improved the issue a bit, but i'm still disappointed. Should i just try a longer vocal rest in this situation or should i just keep on singing?

    MIXED VOICE QUESTION

    Hey forum , I’m new here and having been practicing singing for a while now. I believe I find my mix.and I have a few questions about it. 1: how do I make it more chesty 2: why on some days it’s a bit harder to get my mix going. 3: should I keep on with the “nay nay nay” vocal exercise after I found it? Please judge my little vocal clip there and let me know what you think and how I can improve thanks!
  15. Basically I no longer can sing in head voice or falsetto. A few years ago I was able to sing in head voice I believe (still don't really know the difference, I just know I can't make high pitched sounds) but it was very difficult even then and the last time I was able to do it like that was about 3 years ago. The last time I was even able to make any kind of sound in that area was about last year but I only sang one phrase then my voice cracked. I can't even do a "woo" or scream. I've tried looking this up but they all say to just go higher and it will come naturally but when I get to my highest mixed note (D5-Eb5) I just simply can't go any higher.. I turning 16 soon so could it just be my voice is still developing, bad technique or is it damaged? ----- Had two things to ask but thought I would just keep it in the same post Also another thing is I am not new to music I just want to be able to sing decently to my favorite songs but my voice is very soft and weak and I hate it especially in mixed voice, I have a soft tenor sound which I can make a little bit more powerful by singing louder but my range is E2-D5 (comfortably F#2/G2 - D4) anything below F#2 I can only sing with a lowered larynx, anything above roughly G4 is raised larynx and mixing which sounds super whiny and starts to hurt after a while making singing with male singers extremely difficult. I know this isn't much to go off of and is kind of all over the place but any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  16. Hi all, I would really apreciate to get your opinion on my voice and my covers below with many kind of music (Pop/Acoustic/Piano-voice...) SoundCloud link to my covers : Let me thank you in advance for your feedback ! Best Taha
  17. She claims to have vocal nodules, hasn't done anything about it. How is she able to sing despite them? Is there anything special about her case or can anyone learn to sing despite nodules.

    Stone Cold and Hallelujah (Duets on Smule)

    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
  19. 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

    Opinion on my singing

    What do you think about it? It's one of my favourite queensryche song....
  21. So i hate vocal warmups. In fact i hate it so much that a lot of times it prevents from even starting to sing for a few hours. Now when i watch one of these videos about vocal warmup, it seems that the lip roll is really dominating everything. My problem is that the Lip roll doesn't work for me. Can i do effective warm up while avoiding the lip roll?
  22. Hi fellow vocalists! What is this thread? Why? I am starting this thread as a place to compile different trusted online teaching resources on how to begin training your falsetto or head voice both for myself and for other people looking for a one-stop shop list of this topic. What is your skill level and experience on this topic? I have been studying and training my full voice all semester and want to finally begin adding this skill to my vocal toolbox. I have a very basic sense of head voice to full voice just because of my musical background but other than that I have little to no education or experience on the techniques, practices, standards, and healthy conventions of the use of falsetto singing. Thank you guys for your help in populating this thread.
  23. So i do experience symptoms vocal injury. I pray that it might not be permanent. Now i'm wondering how much do it take to repair my voice. Should i do special exercises or should i go on vocal rest?
