"Middle Voice" tones vs "Chest Voice" and next step to take...

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I'm a complete noob to singing but would love to good enough to sing well at Karaoke bars and wow people, hah. Been reading Set Your Voice Free by Roger Love, near the end of it now, and been practicing the exercises every day for the last 2 weeks. I'm a bit confused about a couple things though.

1) Does singing in Middle voice automatically produce higher notes than Chest voice (and does Head automatically produce higher notes the Middle?)? It feels like it does but I want to make sure I'm doing it correct. I can force it to sound like chest while in middle, but that feels strained and Love says straining is no bueno.

2) How do these exercise allow me to sing? To use a baseball analogy, I feel like I'm learning to hit a ball, catch a ball, and throw a ball, then being expected to play baseball. But in order to play baseball, you need to understand the rules, strikes, balls, where to run, when not to run, what bases are, etc.. So what am I missing here? Do I just try to sing in the same tones I'm learning in the exercises? I know this must sound really dumb so please forgive my ignorance.
