  1. This is just to show the difference between my "normal" singing , an idea of the "tongue root" being involved in '"Brightening the sound" or increasing the Higher frequencies. The "SOUND" of a low larynx(Adams Apple). Low Larynx + Tongue root "Brightness" and a HIGH Larynx with perhaps Cricoid Tilt. In that order. You can check with whatever program you want to see what formant differences there are if any. I do not have a program for that. The last clip surprised me. I did not get closer to the mic or turn up any volume. All differences are at the level of the vocal folds. I did not change breathing patterns or intensity. I did not try to change any vowels other than lowering my larynx on the two low larynx examples and the last clip I was using a ""Fat Albert" (Bill Cosby Cartoon from the 70s) coordination which is close to swallowing with a high larynx, closed mouth and flat tongue. Possibly what is called a cricoid tilt also. I am not trying to sound good. I am only giving examples. I only tried to sing this a few days ago. This is not to impress anyone. I know the flaws.
  2. Hello everyone, my passaggio is at B3-E4 and my chest voice is dark. It's not good for rock or pop cause is heavy and not pleasure. Some people told me I'm a tenor, others baritone but, is that possibile have a passaggio at B3-E4 beeing a tenor? It's possibile change the color of chest? Ty ...
  3. Hi Guys, Joined a band about a year ago and sing for fun and enjoyment. Even though I'm not in the first blush of youth I'm still passionate about improving and exploring my voice so any constructive feedback would be really appreciated. We created this demo track at a local rehearsal studio close to where I live. It is a live recording so there are a couple of carbuncles in the vocals. Really looking forwards to starting the course...bit overwhelmed by the amount of content atm! #excitied Good luck with your singing journeys people! Mark Shot Gun Shoes Band
  4. Hi , here is my cover of "man against the world " originally performed by survivor . I sing it 4 half tons down , because i am not a high tenor like jimmy jamison. Please review and comment for me to improve my singing. Thank you
  5. This is a lesson that gives two simple tips on how to capture a David Bowie vocal color. There is a lot more involved than these two ideas, but this should be helpful. Be sure to view the two performances of "Space Oddity" & "Life On Mars". Learn More: http://www.TheVocalistStudio.com.
  6. I doubt that this has anything to do with training the voice but there is the possibility. I am a small skinny guy 130 pounds tops all my life. I have not been training aggressively but using more support more twang and cord closure. The issue is this, I have noticed that the soft tissue around my neck is swollen, also under my armpits. Normally my armpits are concave and there was a dip between the collar bones and sides of my neck. These areas are now puffy and convex. Earlier in life while working out with shoulder shrugs(holding weights) and other exercises meant to strengthen the neck and shoulder muscles this also happened. That was expected and looked for. Can just using more aggressive singing and stronger support cause these issues?
  7. I don't usually sing torch-y rock stuff like this but I love listening to it and heavier stuff within the genre. Wanted to try something new. Any and all feedback is welcome. https://app.box.com/s/88yuem4987gdtg3ip3vx47bnyx2z3vfn
  8. Hi Folks, A few in the forum have indicated that I have a bright sounding voice, so I was tempted to cover some James La Brie! This is a work in progress version. Please indicate errors that you spot so that I can clean them up. Especially areas where you see a dipthong or onset issue! I find that to sing this song, I need to hear myself extremely well(Talking about the high parts in the latter half of the song). In a sense I have to visualize the note as it forms in my vocal chords. Even if my hearing is slightly off(through loud background) I have a big difficulty in getting the weight right. It leads to strain and off pitched notes. Therefore this is a very low margin song for me to cover live. Do you have any recommendations on how I can overcome this problem? Also any tips to improve the mix will be really useful!! Also suggestions for songs that you think will suit my voice!!
  9. I've heard a lot about depressing the larynx with the tongue and how one tells that they're doing this by the fact that they sound like Kermit the Frog but are there any examples out there people doing this or are there even any examples of singers who sing that way ? I may have that problem myself, i've been to a quite a few different coaches and the one I have at the moment has had me vocalizing with my tongue touching my back teeth as well as with my tongue sticking out but it still sounds muffled or hollow when I sing a scale or just anything in that general part of my voice. Also just in case anyone was wondering i'm as bass as far I know....the voice type not the fish...
  10. For a long time, I have been practicing to have similar technique to this vocalist. Mind you, I do not wish to sound exactly like him, I know that's not possible, but I would like to better understand his techniques and vocal flexibility. Over the past five years, I have accomplished his range and some use of techniques, but as you will hear in the recording at the bottom, my formant and vocal flexibility are lack luster. This has been hard to fix for me. Part of my formant problem is me finding the spaces in my voice where I sound my best. And, due to imperfect technique, I get tired very quickly. This is the song I am singing. Below is the same song with me singing over it. You should be able to hear it pretty clearly, how much voice doesn't quite have the same overtones, yet, it seems like our vocal tones are within the same ballpark. You can hear my voice get so, so tired after a while. Sometimes I sound mouthy and muddled whenever I feel like I sound so much brighter or warmer. I am unsure of what to be looking for. I want to be a performer. This doesn't sound very healthy to me. Please help me to understand where my voice needs to be worked on. Thank you.
  11. I had been working on this song since last year - the climax "Because of you" isn't as full as I would like it to be, I guess since my voice thins out past Bb4, but I think the pitch is right for the most part. This key felt really comfortable for me though besides that part. I really like this Adult Contemporary stuff she did. Any and all feedback welcome. https://app.box.com/s/buvjmgr00xl5g1nl0ymqnwp7s1xtoh8z
  12. https://app.box.com/s/97emef1o9vjbw9yl7hz9d8xs27ubnshv Been going through a lot of 90's singers respective discographies, found the French version of this song and then the Spanish version which was recorded later on in the 2000's. [There's also an Italian version sung by a male Italian singer apparently?] Sang it a fifth below the original Spanish version linked below. Not all of the lyrics in the video are correct, I think but it's right for the most part. Found that it was easier to lighten the top notes of the last few choruses instead of bringing all the weight up. Any and all feedback welcome.
  13. In line with what Sexy_Beast suggested, I decided to try something that is more Soul and less Pop. Still looking for the right Teddy Pendergrass song. This song was originally done by Bettye Swan in 1972 but covered by Joss Stone on her 2003 album The Soul Sessions, which my sister had bought when it first came out, and when I first remember hearing this track and "Super Duper Love". I really like the vibe and the story told by this song. Any and all feedback is welcome. Edit: Updated song file, revised
