  1. Over the years, my vocal "training" has basically consisted of doing research and practising through snippets of a cappella. One reason for this is that I have had to fit everything round one huge, all consuming IT project. The project may let up soon and I'm thinking of putting everything together by doing actual covers of songs. It's gonna take time (I don't even have the right recording equipment yet) but I thought it would be fun to informally "blog" my progress in a thread. So.. My starting point is to pick a song I think I know more or less from memory, and sing it a cappella. This raw vocal should give me a rough idea of whether the song is doable, before I attempt to dot i's and cross t's Then I am going to go away and study all my errors and misconceptions, hopefully with no show-stoppers. The song I have chosen is Green Green Grass Of Home (Tom Jones) https://soundcloud.com/kickingtone/gggoh001cv
  2. Before you totally write off this article you'll have to admit: karaoke is fun! If you haven't yet had the experience of blasting out vocals to your favorite songs with your friends then you are missing one of life's greatest experiences. If this is you, stop reading right now and make a date with your friends to hit up the local karaoke bar this weekend. With a little bit of practice (okay, maybe A LOT of practice) this could be you: What about those who still have a fear of performing in front of people? Well, that's why the home karaoke system was invented. Designed for those who want to host a more intimate karaoke outing. Also, a great addition to liven up any regular house party. For the rest of us, we know how exhilarating it can be hitting the high notes to the backing track. We know the feeling of seeing the crowd actually enjoying a karaoke performance. Some of you may even be familiar with the high that comes from an enthusiastic applause from the audience. But karaoke isn't something that we actually should take seriously is it? Well, in my opinion, the answer is both YES and NO. Mastering singing is just like any other musical endeavor. It requires both time and purposeful practice. Those who have the control to really let loose while singing have spent hours training their breathing, vocal chords, and posture. They've put in the hours and hard work required to master a skill. One common thread that every experience singer shares is time. If you ask them they will likely tell you they are constantly singing. The sing in the car, in the shower, doing laundry, washing dishes. While this is not exactly purposeful practice, the hours add up over time. If you're like most people, finding all that time to sing can be exhausting. Seriously, who has an extra hour a day to devote to singing? This is where karaoke comes in. While it may be difficult to find the motivation to grind out an hour of practicing the major scale, it's far easier to head down to the bar with your friends for a fun night of karaoke. This is a place where you can relax and let loose. You can challenge yourself under pressure. You can push the boundaries of your range and ability with a little help from alcohol. You may even find yourself getting far more singing in then you would during your typical practice session. Learning a new skill doesn't always have to be a grind. Through finding fun workarounds you are able to make the process much easier. You may even find that karaoke provides you with a new source of motivation. The karaoke stage can be a great way to showcase your talent to a receptive and forgiving crowd. If you underperform, no one has to know that you've been secretly taking singing lessons for the past year. If you knock it out of the park, all the power to you. So while karaoke can be another powerful tool in your arsenal, it doesn't have to be shrouded in a technique and rigor like your regular rehearsals. While I know many of you will still look down your noses at karaoke, I hope I've inspired at least one person to go and give it a chance. What do you think? Is karaoke something worth trying?

  3. I know, I know, don't bite my head off just yet. I know what you're thinking, "there is no place for karaoke during my vocal practice." For most of you, this statement is correct. However, I know how hard practicing can be. I know there are a few of you out there that don't have enough time to dedicate a few hours a week to vocal training. There is where karaoke comes in. I'll explain below! Before you totally write off this article you'll have to admit: karaoke is fun!

  4. Hi All, I have created a YouTube Channel on which I plan to upload acoustic guitar instrumentals to help fellow singers train and improve their singing skills. Looking for feedback and suggestions. What do you guys think? Link to the latest video:
  5. Hey. So. I'm new to all this. I can't play guitar or piano.. so I'm starting to sing using karaoke musics. But the problem is. Usually a song. They make the pitch the same as the singer voice . So it's easier for them to sing. But the thing is when I want to sing his/her song on karaoke version. My vocal range can't hit the high notes if I want to sing . So I need to sing it with lower range which makes it so uneasy on my vocal. So I search on the internet and found that I can use programs to change the pitch of some karaoke songs. So its easier on my voice. The thing is I'm so new about this so I don't know how much I should decrease (Semitones) on the pitch setting... So I'm here to ask you guys how to count the exact Semitones to be decreased on the song so I can sing it easily. Thanks . Sorry if this kinda confusing . I'm totally new to this stuff... Thank you so much
  6. For my school production, they are getting us to sing with a karaoke backing track. However, the backing track they are using is too high a key for me to sing in. What should I do?
  7. OK, so I was watching Sia on Carpool Karaoke with James Cordon. When she begins singing her neck bellows outwards. What the hell is that? She also goes on to slightly talk about a technique James asks about
  8. There's a new Soundbar coming out that is designed for setting up Karaoke easily. Hook with any music apps online and essentially enjoy an unlimited music library. Bluetooth enabed and comes with wireless microphone and subwoofer so no cables mess. Currently on Indiegogo for pre-order and would love some feedback from folks in this forum. There's a live video demo session this Thursday at 1PM PST on Boxtiq.tv. To join the demo download the Boxtiq iOS app and tune in around 1PM Thursday!
