  1. Hi all. This past year I've developed a nasty hoarseness in my speaking voice, which seriously affects my singing. The cause is unknown at this time, though I'm going to be seeing a specialist about it soon. There are a few things that could be causing it, but I'm waiting for the doctor's word on it. But in the meantime.... I'm very curious about something. When I sing a few songs, whether in performance or at home while practicing, the hoarseness goes away. The first few minutes are usually not the best, but after about 10-15 minutes of singing there are little to no issues! For some reason the hoarseness clears up. Of course it comes back shortly after I stop singing, but that's no surprise. So, does this rule out growths (polyps) or throat cancer or something serious like that? I'm thinking (hoping) the hoarseness is related to meds I take for asthma and nasal polyps; or combination of them with the air quality around me. In fact, I find that an air conditioned venue really lets my voice shine. So weird. I fully realize no one here (maybe) is a doctor or authority on medical issues, but just wondering if anyone has any insight on all this? Thanks!
  2. I always assumed I did not have a vibrato. But I know people have control over it, and can choose to sing with or without vibrato? Are there techniques to learn to control it? I just realized yesterday that when I goof around and sing like a lounge singer, I have a vibrato! I have been singing my own originals for years, and since I am not yet famous, I figure it has a lot to do with my voice, although for now I would like to know if others have taught themselves to use vibrato.

  4. Evening all Now having read stuff online about this. I heave read that only people who are born with the ability to be pitch perfect can decipher the difference from one note to another. But I know that this is not true because I know people that can tell the difference from say a G# to an A from hearing the note and they never could at a very young age they have just learnt and taught music for a lot a lot of years of practice. Now I know if I keep hearing the sound of say C3 and then I keep repeating that note, eventual I will remember how to produce a C3 with out a reference sound. But being able to cipher the difference between a C to a C# or a Cb, how could one tell the difference. So I guess the question is, is there a better way to remember the difference between one semi tone to the next other then just playing it and singing what you have just heard over and over again? Thanks
  5. I started a thread on the LP reddit, and was hoping for some people to discuss this with. Without getting too crazy, not only what we are hearing is impossible, if you slow it down to .25 you can hear 2 voices at once being modulated at the same time. Humans can't do this. also in the end has come cute masonic alphabet in it. These guys have many secrets.
  6. I'm unaware if this video has been posted here before. I think it underscores what's wrong with some vocal coaches who seem to remain stuck in outdated teaching methods from circa 1985. I would have come away from my first voice lesson with the exact same opinion were it not for the fact that a major rock star told me his coach increased his vocal range, stamina, and power significantly! I went to his same vocal coach. I went to the first lesson expecting that whatever the coach instructed was gold, and I was going to follow it blindly! After all, I had seen the results in a singer he taught! It's true, just like Grohl implies in this video, after that first lesson I thought, "it just seems bogus that these singing scales are gonna help me achieve what I'm wanting vocally!" There was very little in depth discussion about what the science of the vocal instruction was. It was just, take this cassette home of the scales I just recorded you singing, and practice them every day for at least an hour. Next week when you come back, we're gonna work on vibrato. Then the next lesson, another cassette, until a large volume of dollars drained out of my wallet. It's very cool how Rob Lunte blazed the trail on vocal pedagogy in the last 15+ years. It's a model that brings a more holistic and specialized comprehension, which translates into augmentation of vocal development/improvement. To say nothing of his engaging training system, and the re-engineering of "singing scales" or "vocal workouts" (chiefly - onsets) to maximize the students ability to feel more tangibly what is occurring in the vocal track, and why. I don't know who this coach was that Cobain went to, but you can see there wasn't enough understanding at the end of his lesson. AND, if Kurt blew his voice out, why did he come home with a cassette of scales? (see any of the youtube videos or threads on exercises for vocal damage). peace! k
  7. Yo TMVW People, Pals, and fellow lovers of sangin'! If you watch this video (starting after 5:05) past the alien stuff, the author explains some impressive voice technology advances made by Google. It's interesting, ... and I thought it was funny that the first thing I think of is how now ( soon ), any person who can mimic the singing mannerisms (a good impression of their articulation) of a famous singer, and has decent rhythm (those are "some" of the most basic skills), could turn on the effect and now, out of the speakers comes the Artist of their choice (on a drop down menu no doubt ) Dio, Mercury, Jackson, Elvis, take your pick! Actually having vocal cords that sound like the artist no longer required to book a tribute band gig! feels like a step beyond pitch correction to be sure. Just fun with toys to me however, I know there are purists who might find this a disgusting perpetuation of a digital cancer on musicianship. anyway, just a crazy funny thought I had after watching the video.

  9. The term Muscle Tension Dysphonia is a general term which could be associated with an imbalance in the muscle’s coordination and breathing patterns required to create a voice. Muscle Tension Dysphonia (often called MTD) may occur on its own, or as a result of a strained voice being pulled into the neck muscles. The reason behind this disorder is not always clear. It may be triggered by allergies, illness, acid reflux or whichever other means... Symptoms - The most common symptoms for this disorder is a change in voice quality, often associated with discomfort of the vocal cords (or voice box) while speaking or singing. Also, almost always, symptoms like hoarseness and rapines will be associated with an increased effort to talk or sing, coupled with subsequent fatigue during continuous voice use. Treatment - There is an alternative form of voice therapy which is the gold standard for the treatment of Muscle Tension Dysphonia. There are no other known treatments (outside of the Vocal Science™ Method and Technique) that can restore the muscle balance in the vocal mechanism. With that said, this unique form of therapy will help alleviate the above vocal symptoms.

    How much does face shape affect tone?

    I have noticed that the most lead singers of the bands I like (that would be rock and metal) have quite large lower jaws and wide faces - think David Coverdale, Steven Tyler etc, . In contrast I have a smaller than average (probably) lower jaw and relatively narrow face. Will this have an impact on my tone? I think I have a quite a thin tone. I started singing to emulated my heroes and it would be gutting to think that I'm never going to achieve a decent rock voice because I just don't have the necessary physical attributes. Range is not an issue and I don't have a particularly loud voice but it's loud enough for what it needs to do.

    Spectrogram

    Is there any use for spectrograms in singing? For what? Bringing in harmonics? If so, any recommendations on software/apps? I found this one site that talks a bit about them. http://vocped.ianhowell.net/a-spectrogram-primer-for-singers/

There are two sources of support when singing. When we understand that, doors will open to reveal the need to train the musculature for singing.

  17. Hello Vocal Enthusiasts!   I wanted to reach out to you to show you the trailer for my upcoming film about the voice! It was created with leading throat surgeon Mered Harries (RSCH UK) and myself Georgia Train. It focuses heavily on endoscope footage and laryngograph data and acts as a technical encyclopedia, documenting almost every vocal technique at vocal fold level.   Please watch the trailer here and sign up to the mailing list for more info: www.thevoicewithindocumentary.com   I have been working on this for a year and am passionate about bringing it to vocal coaches everywhere! Gulp, let me know your thoughts!   Georgia Train Vocal Coach, UK
