Just a thought

I've been thinking a lot about singing lately, and came across an odd idea. Here goes.

Perhaps elimination of the gag reflex would help with range expansion and a more relaxed voice.

I did a search to see if anyone else had mentioned something along those lines and saw that Bob had posted something that related to it, but it didn't seem to go into it further than that.

Now, I still have my gag reflex, and don't plan on losing it, so I don't know if this would work firsthand. It's just a theory I came up with and thought I'd share.

Interested to see thoughts on this subject.

You can't get rid of the gag reflex.

I learnt the squeezing your left thumb in your palm like Raphaels mentioned. But it's a temporary effect that doesn't enhance singing, the gag reflex comes back, it's natural thing.

Raphaels, you've just turned into the most hilarious guy in this forum for me :rolleyes:

Btw, why would you need to get rid of your gag reflex for singing? Your voice doesn't make you throw up, does it?

That's funny. Though I have heard some "singing" that makes me want to throw up.

By the way, these same two guys put out another video of a Whitesnake song and a few times, the "singer" made a mistake and sang on key, making me think that this was a gag, a joke. To not hit one single note right takes concentration, moreso than just singing.

You can see in both videos the computer operator turning away from the camera to hide his laughter and even the singer knows it's a put-on.

Anyway, gag away.
