Steven Fraser Posted February 18, 2013 Share Posted February 18, 2013 Hey Steven, Thanks for jumping to the rescue here. Ok. So I tried like you said to make a cough position no inhale and slowly try letting very little air out. I get the pop, but it comes in a single pop. no more. If i try to increase air pressure even slightly i get the tone. In all honesty, I dont think I know how to adduct the vocal folds and keep then adducted while release slight air pressure.... Jay, any luck on your side? gilad: No worries. 1 pop is just fine. If the very next gradation louder is a modal tone, then that is fine. As mentioned, the purpose of the fry exercise (even 1 pop :-) ) is to induce an un-forced, low energy phonation. You got that with the modal tone that you are producing. The next step in the progression is to onset that minimal modal tone, so that you gain experience at this end of the dynamic range, and then sirens up a 5th, and up an octave, maintaining the same easy sense. I hope this is helpful. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
