Guest Posted May 11, 2013 Share Posted May 11, 2013 Hi everyone, HOLDING a flow phonation for too long "tires out" my falsetto and also if I do staccatto's too quickly I also get winded. So i have been trying to do the best I can balancing out both to ultimate hit from more "angles" and hope to achieve stronger upper register. I am 100% sure its lack of co-ordination but also because of the BAD habit of being windy all the time. I am wondering from ALL TVS or CVT students or anyone with a set regime.. what has been the most CRUCIAL builders and co-ordinaters for head voice. For me almost every exercise has been useless in getting rid of pesky falsetto. The 3 that genuinely make me feel "safe" in head voice are: 1. TVS Quack and release... Haw-mm-eee ( i swell on ee which is TIRING but works) 2. the AW vowel idk it just works 3. Ng or any humming Now based of my analysis of myself and some help from others it is a struggle between SUPPORT AND TWANG. Ususally one of the other is not working well for me. When I do get a nice clean head voice it is often "ugly" and not usable in singing but for me FALSETTO is actually beautiful but it is caused by unsupported tone. What is the no-bs way to get rid of falsetto and replace it with the strongest head voice possible? It is very fustrating when one day I have a great bright and powerful head voice and another day it sounds like im releasing hot air! My "onsets" up there are also very "breathy" and even with "k" or "g" I do not feel the vocal cords close at all.. even when I don't hear breathiness sometimes I am still using too much air. Hope some of you guys can help me out here! I HATE FALSETTO but at the same time building a head voice is very important to me so I will work it. The reason why I posted this thread is because having 100 exercises for falsetto is not a good approach for me.... having 3-5 solid exercises throughout the day and an understanding of the voice-building approach and transitioning to songs REALLY helps me. I'm sure we all know FALSETTO as a primitive mechanism... I just want to advance This video is a great example of the falsetto I am doing vs head voice... how do I get there without sounding SO Mickey Mousey that it ruins the song! - JayMC Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
