D.Starr Posted September 1, 2012 Share Posted September 1, 2012 Getting sick of flipping into Falsetto and not having a developed head voice. I TRY to workout my head voice everyday with Goo and Gee scales. The some Wee-Woh from low down to up high. I've been doing this for a good 3 months and seen no development in my head voice. I know I shouldn't expect something straight away, but it usually doesn't take this long to develop something in my voice. I've been trying the Mays on a 5 tone scale today and it does sound all nice and connected in my chest voice but as I approach the bridge my larynx shoots up, I try to dampen the larynx and it all falls apart. I have a pretty deep voice as well so lightening up just feels like I'm letting go to me and I let go and flip/grind into falsetto. I really really hate falsetto and would like a nice head voice. Trying to conquer the range from F4-A4 needs that nice light connected tone. I don't wish to go higher I really don't want those majorly high notes in my range or music. Would be nice to have them but I'm not chasing them, yet. I recently entered 2 singing competitions. Open Mic UK which I passed and was scouted by a producer and I'm currently working on music with him as well as working towards the regional final I hope to win, which moves on to the grand final. Then I entered the Voice UK auditions. There were several rooms with 10 contestants in each. As many as 5 were move don to the next stage in some groups. Where as in my group of 10 I was the only one. They really like my voice, commented on a few strained notes at around G4. More over they liked my personality and said my voice is something they would like to work on. The call backs are in October so it was something I would like to try and conquer by then. I believe I can do it. I'm willing to work my butt off everyday. I just need the correct technique that works for me and I'll be up,up and away. I think it could be the raised larynx and thinning out my voice. I practice edge connection but I break a lot. I persevere but you know what it's like hitting your head against a wall day after day. Any ideas? Apologies for the long post. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
