iv always liked singing but im not good at it. so i picked up the singing for dummies book. doesnt seem like a bad book for some one new like me, but it doesnt go into details on somethings so that why im here and would like to use this fourm as huge help with my singing so hopefully you guys can help me out. 

I have figured out how to lower my larnix and drop my jaw. thats about all the farther i got in the book that i need help on. 

so my questions are you suppose to keep your jaw in the dropped postion all the time. 

and is your larnix suppose to be neutral all the time. im assuming since im new to this all these new processes are over whelming me. trying to push your jaw back and hold your voice box down is creating more tension then helping right now(my neck and the back of my skull muscles hurt pretty good from trying this stuff. not a bad hurt just like working your muscle hurt) . when i try to sing it feels like some one just run a poll down the back of my head down my neck and spine and locked it. that how tense i get to try to do all these techniques at once and i dnt even think its helped my voice much yet. anyone with any sugguestions please help me out. even if you have a video links to help anything would be awesome

thank you :)

Welcome Myersth,

and welcome to your journey... Honestly the best thing I think I could recommend for you is:

1). stay on this forum and read a lot of posts and ask questions.

2). subscribe to my youtube channel, there is a LOT of free content there that will explain a lot of stuff for you.

3). consider investing in my vocal training program, or any good program. That is how you can really get serious.

 

No, your jaw is not suppose to be open all the time and it sounds like you have tension issues. Those tension issues do not have to continue to be there. Most of that is triggered by psychosis your body being confused. Real training can help you to eliminate that.

hey thanks man ill deff check out your channel. i dnt think im interested in real training since im only doing this for me and nothing special. i think i started to work out the issue with this. i just started singing and not thinking about what i just learned and just did it and it felt more natural and to my ear i sounded better but thats just my ear and was the first time i was able to apply something i learned with improvement. im literally on day 2 of reading this book so will see what a few weeks and months hold for me. i know with my guitar it takes a while to advanced lol .

You could use a training program, even if you are not going pro. Reading materials on your own is not helping. You said so yourself, in so many words and that is why you are here. And wanting a voice teacher to teach you for free.

Like a mechanic to fix the car without charging for parts and labor.

Like a chef to cook a meal and not charge for ingredients, time, energy usage.

Like a surgeon spending resources and taking on the financial liability of doing an operation and not having a way to pay for that. So, someone somewhere has to go hungry and in this case it is supposed to be the teacher, I guess.

Work with Robert and see what you can accomplish.
