OK so here are the covers I've recently done.

Excuse the quality I have no idea about vocal mixing or mastering.

Thought I'd post them all on here instead of making multiple threads.

Very nice covers :cool:

You have a great tone to your voice and nice agility.

I would say that the main thing that I noticed was that you sing with a slightly pressed tonal configuration and you become very breathy when you decrescendo. I also noticed that you chicken out when the songs get out of the comfortable part of your range and you go into a disconnected head voice. This can be used for stylistic effects, but I would rather hear you sing an unstable full voice note than hear you short change yourself with that falsetto tone.

I believe you can alleviate many of the problems by working on the vocal onset. Practice going from a breathy onset to a glottal onset to a balanced onset.

The breathy onset will be like haaaaaaaaaa....The glottal will be like Aaaaaaaaaaa....The Balanced onset will be like (h) aaaaaaaaaaa in this case the h will not be perceptible, but it should be imagined.

To alleviate the falsetto work on doing slow slides from your lowest to highest pitch without breaking. I personally do this countless times a day at random.

If you need any extra help or demonstrations hit me up on skype. zayyy625

I hope this helps.

Thank you very much bro!

Yeah I find it hard to connect when I descend back down the scale. I always flip or bang bang into "chest". Also I am very scared of pushing my voice. I pull chest too much and I'm trying to pull away from it, but I'm also trying to push my voice more, not strenuously but to connect it more, rather than it be falsetto and light, a more chestier sound.

When ever I carry straight up I pull chest and begin to shout. I've strayed away from 4 Pillars because I feel I pull chest too much and it doesn't help a lot. My voice can be very squeezed at times. People say they love my voice but I can pick out 100 or so errors and things I need to work on.

I simply want a smooth connection, not squeezed nice sounding voice from C2-A4.

I liked Ordinary People. Great song isn't it?

My advice: Try to sing more legato in some places.

Real talent. Great rnb deal I can see here.

Thank you very much! Yeah I love the song.

Yeah I realise at times it isn't smooth and doesn't glide as well as it should do.

You think? I really think I have a good long road to develop my voice and it's frightening. I'm stumbling about at the moment, a lot of strain has reappeared. Not being able to connect my voice is annoying me and lightening up and following up into "head" and back down is frustrating me.

I'll keep at it though.

Pulling chest is complete BS! The lack of being able to sing in full voice in the upper area of the voice is not because we have a different setup it's because we don't have enough strength to keep that fold closure, while simultaneously stretching the vocal folds, while holding back the breath with the body.

You really do have a great voice in the areas in which you are comfortable. This is just like me saying I can bench 300, but I suck because I can't bench 400lbs. Just take your time and be patient(note by note) There is no magic pill or solution only time and constructive effort.
