Nicogratouille Posted February 9, 2012 Share Posted February 9, 2012 Hi everyone, I'm Nick :cool: Just signed in to this forum today, but I have been sneaking around for a little while . I've been especially interested in the posts about Anthony Frisell's vocal method. I have a very nasty habit of pulling up chest, and think the idea of building a strong head voice, to balance the registers sounds great! So I've started doing Frisell's exercise: "The single, sustained falsetto tone". It's the first exercise in the book "The Tenor Voice". It consists in picking a major scale (A major), hold the top A on a "oo" vowel, then the next note, G#, F#, and so on... and try not to blend into chest. Then you do the same on a "ee" vowel. The sound I get on "oo" is very weak, and airy, no vibrato. Totally unlike my normal singing voice in this area. It feels like I'm not keeping my chords together. Is it a problem? I have no problem getting past my passagio with this sound, without breaking. I've read all the pages in the book prior to the exercise, but I want to make sure I'm doing it correctly. Could somebody record a sample of themselves doing the exercise? so I (and maybe others?) can have an idea of how it sounds, when it's done right? Cheers!
