keoladonaghy Posted March 10, 2010 Share Posted March 10, 2010 OK, this is probably a little light for some of your tastes, but I need to ask. Two of my current faves among singers that are significantly younger than I (gulp) are Rob Thomas and Ryan Tedder. I've noticed, as others have observered here previously, that some of the tastiest parts of their songs are sitting in what is my passagio, and possibly their own. I chose live recordings hoping that it would be a little easier to see/hear what theyÊ»re doing. So here's Rob doing "All I Need". As he hits the chorus at 0:48, he does a the song title on an ascending D4-Eb4-E4 run. Shortly after there's a G4 ("cling toâ€¦" and a few notes that are higher. I can do this belting but it sounds like garbage. Is Rob still in chest voice, pulling chest, in mix, twang, or what? Any other observations on his technique? I also noticed that Rob has this habit of very subtley pulling the mic a bit away from his mouth after initial phonation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtcIjoUXe6s This is OneRepublic's "Stop And Stare". The pre-chorus (@ 0:46) gets into that same range, and then the chorus at @1:00. Same questions apply. Mahalo in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
