  1. Hi. I am really bored being Baritone. I am not sure i'm a Baritone or Not. But i have totally un-trained voice and i have also, fry voice problem by Acidic reflux. I have damaged vocal cords but still i can sing. I don't know i have to chance to become Lyric tenor? Or i am a tenor or baritone? When my voice health before, my vocal range: Full chest: E2 (Very weak and force low note) up to A4-B4 and with force alot C5 Mixed chest: I don't know this technique so i don't know. Falsetto: Max note G5 i only know (But screaming) (And my falsetto is airy and dramatic sounds like very Mickey mouse tone) Head voice: Very weak but max note C5 probably. Here is my some cover tests: This recording when my voice is health... (Old a little bit)
  2. Well, first of all, I must say that I'm not a native speaker, so I may have some mistakes in my writting. I have some questions about the vocal technique of a specific singer. His name is Pall Jenkins, and is the singer of the indie rock band The Black Heart Procession. I've been listening to their music since 8 months or so, and for what I've been able to note, he seems to be a Baritone. The thing is, that his (live) vocal performance is not too good, he doesn't seem to have such a great vocal technique. In their song "The Old Kind Of Summer" he hits multiples A4 (I'm almost sure that that's the note he's singing) but he really struggles a lot, he's basically yelling the note, like if that note is not safe for a baritone like him. And for this reason, he never gets to sing that note live, he changes the pitch and so. Everything is okay to this point. BUT, one day I found this old concert, which took place in 1998, the same year they released their first album, and somehow, he actually hits that A4 and his voice sounds really weird, it changes a lot compared to how he sounded in the record, and I don't know if he's using his chest voice or what, I don't understand why in this specific concert he was able to hit the note. Also, in the next song of the video "Stitched to my heart" he sing the same note again. I don't know if he "lost " those high notes with time, or if he used an incorrect vocal technique to hit those notes in the past, so he stopped doing it. There is also another song of their first record, "Blue Water -Black Heart" where I think he sings an A4 when he says "When I LOST myself" but in this case, he's not strugelling like he did in The Old Kind Of Summer. And again, in the concert I mentioned before, he could sing that note, but in later concerts he changes the pitch in that part, then again, I don't understand what is going on. I'd be really thankful if someone answers my questions, I'll leave the links here. (The song where he struggles to hit the A4, from minute 1:57) (This is the concert where he hits the note and I don't know how is he able to do it, and why he sounds so different, from minute 2:22. Also, in the next song "Stitched to my heart" he sings the same note again, minute 6:54.) (Here they're performing The Old Kind Of Summer 11 years later, and look how he isn't able to sing it correctly, minute 2:09). (And finally, in this other song of their first record I think he's singing A4 in the minute 0:46, when he says "When I lost myself".) (But here he doens't hit the note, minute 0:44).
  3. Quick question to any vocal coaches willing to give some advice As someone very new to singing, the current note I'm training is my A4 (which seems to be a problem note for many). I can just about maintain cord compression and keep an open throat if I'm just touching the note in a phrase, but only on a closed vowel - i've recorded an example below to illustrate what I'm doing: https://vocaroo.com/i/s0l0Ga7xiHob (I know I still have some pitching and breath issues - I'm working with my vocal teacher on those) The phrase "and I'll tell YOU all about it" follows a d4-f4-g4-A4-g4-f4-d4-c4 melody. With enough support, I can just keep my cords closed while singing that line. However, there's another song I've been singing along to in the car which touches an A4 on the word "day". I'd really like to be able to sing that phrase, but for some reason I'm finding it incredibly difficult to articulate "day" without splatting the vowel and having my cords coming apart . I've been taught diphthongs, and I can sing an A4 on the "ay" vowel during my scales - but of course singing a scale and singing an actual song are two different things. My teacher says that I just need time to continue training my support and larynx muscles so that my vocal cords become used to being stretched so thin. I believe him, but in the meantime I was wondering if there are any other tricks that anyone here knows of that can help with maintaining cord closure while singing wider vowels on A4 and above? cheers, SN
  4. Hello, to sum it up the title says it all. I am a lyric baritone with a range of G2-A4 (including chest and head voice but not falsetto). Is this the limit of my range or is it possible for me to continue increasing my range? Also an extra question here, I came across a few posts mentioning about increasing high notes through mixed voice. Is pure head voice able to hit higher than mixed voice or can the latter hit higher notes?
  5. Hello guys, many of my favorite songs have use of the A4 note, usually the highest note in the songs. Now we know about M1 and M2 or chest voice and head voice. On a very good day I can sing the A4 note in a full heady sound but nothing close to the power head voices of Freddie Mercury or Bruce Dickinson. Whenever singing songs in the A4 my head voice it sounds weak, audience would not like it. However, I can also sing the A4 by belting in a strong chest voice, there is no pain or discomfort. But any note above this belty A4 my voice will break. In truth the belty A4 seems more useable and correct to me. The heady A4 feels weaker, more risky, and does not do justice for most songs. Many people here are veteran singers and have encountered these problems for years. What should I do to really have control over this dreaded A4?
  6. Everything up to A4 is ok tonally. Afterward, I feel the so called "mixed voice" (or formant shifting in TFPOS) go away and give rise to a bright, less meaty tone. I'm assuming this note is a pretty common place where the male voice shifts into a dominant head voice musculature, so what can I do to make it sound less bright?
  7. I had never spent time developing the skill of writing songs. I just didn't know where to start. After forcing myself to sit with my guitar and a keyboard as a guide, somehow I was able to finish this song in one sitting in a strange burst of inspiration that evolved as the process happened. I can provide the lyrics if anyone needs or it's not clear enough. I recorded the guitar tracks separately from the vocals. Please let me know if it's dragging/keeps interest and how the arrangement and phrasing sounds in general. https://app.box.com/s/wa3y2ko2t12r1o45nancvht8bvao89yq Second Mix: https://app.box.com/s/fugwx3wytme34ft03na23b85msmacs01
  8. So you have been searching the internet to find out how to sing those high notes with beauty and power. Well search no more, here you go: The first 10 orders will get an extra bottle in the exclusive mint flavour. Hurry!
  9. Hi guys I'm doing all my exercise daily and seeing improvement - I thought my limit in chest voice was G4 until I realized I've been singing the way my favorite artists sing. In r&b and pop a lot of the times A4, A#4 they break into falsetto so in my mind that's what is there. Whenever I've been able to sing A4 or A#4 in full strong voice it's when I imitate a powerful singer maybe they are singing loud AY or OH. Thanks to the forum, I now believe it is possible for baritone voice to sing high as well. What songs can I sing to develop a full strong A4 and A#4? I do not have any distortion in my voice and prefer something catchy, B4 and C5 is completely out of my reach for now - baby steps I am willing to try any song of any genre with clean strong singing.
  10. Well...Hi Im Jack, Im from Chile, first of all really sorry for my poor english but ok, here we go. Im very confused about my vocal range because I hear that the baritone have a extension of their range aprox. (B2-E4) and the tenor (C3-C5). Well my lowest note is a G#2 and is really very difficult to do, it is more comfortable for me a A2 and my higuest note with my chest voice it is a G4 or F#4, it's depends, some times with a little effor I can sing a A4 with the mixed voice i guess, im not sure it's head voice it all or a mixed voice, I think it's a mixed voice cuz a feel my chest vibrates and it's not so shrill. Finally my Highest note i can sing with my head voice it is a G5 or F#5 and with falsetto some times a D6 but sounds very noisy and ugly. My question is my range vocal only realizes between my chest voice or also it's taken into account my head voice? Oh I forget to say you I love Jeff Buckley and Alex Turner voices. Sorry for my english, sorry for the lenght of the question. Lov U bye Pd: Qualify my english pls
  11. https://app.box.com/s/wnbvu5hp23hidab4mx1s701fxukpzb0e I did this two months ago with a backing track, but this time I wanted to see what would happen if I made an acoustic arrangement. I recorded the guitar and vocals separately. It always is a little strange working with less production and being a little more vocally "naked", but in the end it feels nice doing the work and having more freedom. From two months ago - https://app.box.com/s/yk0f4hslk2epcltm73d3uzjyvzx6e133 This is a song that I'd like to add to some kind of live repertoire soon. Not sure if I should use the acoustic track I made or the pre-made backing track.
