Eddie two hands. Posted January 6, 2014 Share Posted January 6, 2014 Hello all, this is my very first post on this forum I'm wondering if you guys could offer me any advice, i'm a singer songwriter which is something i've been doing for a few years now, i've always practised the guitar and if i'm honest i've put no effort what so ever into improving my singing, which is something i really want change as of now, as there is loads of room for improvement! So for the first time ever i did some lip roll exercises this evening for half an hour and then sang one of my songs on the guitar and there was a big difference, it felt much more relaxed and my voice sounded much more steady than usual. I just started a borrowed home teach thing by Brett Manning i have the CD"S but no book, i'm gonna go with this for now just so i have something to work on as i'm considering purchasing Robert Lunte's Pillars method when i have the money. It would be great if you guys could answer a few questions. The excersise i worked on this evening was just a 5 note scale thing doing the lip rolls, difficult at first but got easier, i noticed when the scales were getting higher that the top of my nose was vibrating, is this the head voice coming in? It was really difficult to get upto the higher notes smoothly and it sounded quite squeaky and way off pitch, i was nearly on the floor laughing at my self! Is this difficulty i experienced the crossing from head to chest? At points the vibrating at the top of my nose stopped as i was going higher, it stopped at the same point it was vibrating at before, would this indicate that i was in the higher levels of chest voice and not head voice? Should a singer always feel this vibration thing when in head voice? I'd never heard of head voice until a couple of weeks ago so all this stuff is practically brand new for me. I also never experienced this top of the nose vibration thing before tonight. I'm well aware of my limits and Know i'll never sing like Brett manning or Robert Lunte, but i'm very confident that i can improve and do a much better job than i'm doing at the moment and maybe increase my range a little. I really enjoyed my short session this evening and look forward to really getting stuck in with a lot of practise! Any answers to the questions i've submitted will be greatly appreciated. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
