Remylebeau Posted March 8, 2013 Share Posted March 8, 2013 So, I'm attempting to tackle Gethsemane from Jesus Christ Superstar. And by tackle I mean, one small bit at a time, however long it takes. The song has some screams up to G5 in it and I'm trying to do them with less effort. I can sing up to A5-Bb5 or so, but I've never performed anything that goes higher than E5 because it becomes a lot more difficult for me at that point. I can hit the note, but it has varied consistency, it can be difficult to sustain, and the effort levels right now are just too high that I wouldn't want to try it in a live performance until it gets easier. Sometimes I can do them free from strain, sometimes there's definitely some strain. Here's a clip of me making an attempt at the first of these passages that goes up to G5 in the song. https://soundcloud.com/remylebeaux-1/gethsemane-g5 Any suggestions about how I can improve it, or exercises to work on to strengthen those really high notes would be much appreciated!
