D.Starr Posted April 1, 2011 Share Posted April 1, 2011 So... Over the last few weeks or so I've found success in my voice if that even makes sense. I'm beginning to hit notes that troubled me, my voice still isn't where I want it to be yet, but it's a work in progress I guess. Now before I was having problems hitting notes above C4, I know this sounds weak and pathetic, but I guess being a deep voiced guy it kinda hinders you. With my love of R&B I wish to OWN the passaggio/mixed voice area through curbing, but as I'm curbing I'm adding volume and I guess adding tension to the neck and straining past what I hear as being around E4. I was wondering... 1. How high can curbing be taken before it turns to head voice/neutral? (if that makes sense) 2. How to handle the volume? Before support? Better vocal closure? I've tried to hold back on the volume but I fail 3. How to deepen the curbing sound? I want the high notes but with a little bit of a deeper tone. I've tryed dropping the jaw slightly but then I focus on that too much and the sound is mushy EDIT OK, so I'm tryna hit You at G#4 I believe. But I feel it building up in my neck. The sound that the artist does is quite chesty to my ears, but I know it's curbed. I've tried to modify the vowel to UH, and have found some small leeway. But the You that artist sings sounds like just a straight up You, like HOOT. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
