I've gotten particularly interested in the parameter of 'edging' E vs 'curbing' C as one element of various singers' signature tones. I thought I'd list some names and get the feedback of the experts here on the direction in which these guys tend to lean. FWIW these aren't necessarily all singers that I particularly like; in come cases just people that are in mind because I heard them on the radio recently. If anyone wants to add names to the list that would be great. I realize that this is a very simplistic way to categorize singers, but hey, I'm a simplistic guy at this stage of my singing development. As I listen to some snippets of a lot of these guys it seems that even this simple categorization doesn't work, as some of them have really round darkish sounds, but simultaneously I get a strong sense of edging type resonance. Maybe that's just what good singers do! So if there are some other basic parameters or comments that you all want to add to the categorization, please do. Robert Plant (E?) Billy Joel (E mostly?)
