rkas1222 Posted March 24, 2012 Share Posted March 24, 2012 Rank beginner here -- I can't yet even hold a tune. But curious about some things. I've seen a lot of talk, and some demonstrations, of head voice. But it's still not clear if it can be used seamlessly in pop songs. Let me give you an example. I seem to run out of chest register steam around D4 or E4. Let's say I want to sing, say, the Beatles' tune "I Saw Her Standing There." Paul's up around F4 all throughout the song, hits G4 a few times ("When I crossed the room..."), and throws in a A4 here and there. To my ear, this all sounds very full, very natural, and very seamless. Maybe for Paul, it is in fact entirely chest register. I dunno. But regardless of whether it is for Paul, could someone whose chest register range stops short of F4 sing that in a convincing manner, by using head/mix/middle/whatever-you-want-to-call-it voice? Usually the demonstrations I see of head voice are 'flourish' notes, and not part of the normal melody. And if they can, does it ever become easy? Again, in some of the head voice demos I see, it still seems like it's not always easy to 'hit' the bridge notes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
