babystar Posted March 18, 2010 Share Posted March 18, 2010 Hello everybody! No Wonder Mariah Carey is one of my biggest inspirations for my singing and also my music! Still, I want you to know that I'm not copying her, but I want to learn to sing beautiful in my whistle register! I always practice a few times a day, and I always end up in forcing the high notes. I can sing up to an A6 (but forced and I can just hit the notes for 0.5 sec). The highest note that I can do a beautiful vibrato on is E6. What I realized tho is that I sing in my HEADVOICE and not whistle voice. I can sing headvoice up to a F6, sometimes even a G6! But when I go higher I really look awful and tensed and it just looks like I'm some kind of wannabe trying to sing whistle haha. It also feels like the throat muscles gets activated and I get a horrible swallowing feeling. Once when I was hoarse, I could easily hit a B6. That feeling I had, whoa.. even if I was hoarse I fell in love with that feeling. It was just a beautiful whistle sound without any support and I didn't dare to go higher 'cause I was hoarse! Tho when I wanted to sing from E5-C6 I was breathy and it sounded really crap! I'm happy that I have a good headvoice but I really wanna learn how to whistle with the right technique without tensing in my throat 'cause when I watched Minnie Riperton's "Loving you". ... I just fall in love with the whistle sound. I hope someone can help me. Thank you so much! / Claudia Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
