Guest Posted March 20, 2013 Share Posted March 20, 2013 Hey everyone, I know everyone has principles of singing which work for them. Thus far just by practicing the TVS routines and head voice slides and a handful of semi-occludeds; my success with the bridge has increased, I no longer feel as much fear either. Usually the fear of a note alone is enough to "crush" the sound. The reason is this... myself and many others wish to sing songs that are RIGHT at the bridge and beyond it. I will give you an example: Do you believe that the singer sang this song "technically" correct? Imho there was no complete connection to m2 (head voice) necessary for this singer. Ok.. now that I am learning to bridge (usually better success with eh, ouh, ih vowel) with early bridging that I have been practicing that puts me at a problem spot. I can either belt this song like this guy OR bring the head voice down with a twangy edgy configuration. The specific part of the song is the chorus "Down Down Down" since I am approaching from the bottom of the scale it feels easier for me to dampen the larynx which gives me a boomier sound but not the twangy bright sound I need for this song. How should I approach this situation? Since I am using TVS I have been using darker twanged vowels. My first approach was to twang and then modify the vowel to eh as in "bet" which moderately helped. What is the best way to twang HARD without being in "quack mode" RIGHT at the bridge? This is a case where I actually need twang so how do I do this correctly? I find singing it top-down to help but other than that am lost lol! Should I not dampen my voice at all if the sound is then "too boomy"? - JayMC Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
