Hey guys,

Ive been working on my head/mix/whatever its called lately and have gotten a good result I believe.

I can know sing more easily in between c4-g4, but I want to make sure its not too breathy.

In the last half to the track, theres a more controlled "belt", but Im not sure if Im doing it right.

I couldn't find your "belt", mate. Haha. And my expectations for belt are pretty low ( a belt of mine would be the most chestiest sound I can produce in my higher range, even if it doesn't sound as chesty as my middle range ) . Belt for me is mostly based on "effort" if it is your most energy requiring sound, then it would enter into the belt category in my book, haha.

What I can hear in this song is mostly your middle range ( chest ) and your pure head voice ( which sounds very strong to me. I can't produce a pure head voice like that ) If you manage to get the coordination for mixing your chest to your head you will have a higher range stronger than I have for now, I think.

Keep working, mate! :D

Hey sixohs, I have to agree with Xamedhi, no belting in this recording. But I think you are already mixing in your mid-range. If you want to improve it, you just need to carry it higher in the scale. I didn't think your pure head voice sounded as strong as Xamedhi thought, but it can also be improved. I liked your timbre in the recording. Keep on Rocking man! :cool:

Haha, man. His headvoice sounds a lot stronger than mine. I can only sing in very low volume in pure headvoice and I can hear the air leaking ( and it is not falsetto ). My pure headvoice sounds very wimpy, when I mix more, then you can hear what's on my soundcloud.

Hey man, not to worry. We are all in the same road here. I think my head voice sounds pretty good, but only between G4 and D5 (maybe E5 on a good day, but improving). But I'm still excited cause just a few months ago I had no idea I could sing like this...;)

So, are you mixing/recording your own material or cover songs?

Cheers, and Keep on Rocking! :cool:

Hey guys, thanks for the feed back. When you guys say "head voice", are you taking about the highest part in that track? Because I "believe" Im actually using falsetto. I could be wrong though.

I dont know if you guys refer to falsetto and head voice as the same, with the terms being all mixed up.

Yea, I just make and record my own tracks/songs. Its a serious hobby of mine, hope to get a publishing deal eventually. Well see.

Well, when I say falsetto I mean the completely released mechanism. When you blow just air with a vestige of sound. Pure headvoice to me is what you would hear in the Bee Gees or Vitas, and Mix what you would hear when listening to Steve Perry, Bruce Dickinson or Adam Lambert ( don't know what music do you hear so it's kind of hard to give you examples haha )

I can also say for example, "Bruce Dickinson sings in a very heavy headvoice", and that would also mean "He has a very heavy mix" . Because the key word in there is "heavy". To me and a lot of guys that word means "with more mass", mass being more vocal musculature, which makes the sound chestier.

Haha, that's how my brain works, though. I'm pretty sure other people understands diferent, and quite a few of them may also start a terminology war haha

I would say that your head voice sound good. More practice should eliminate the breathy sound if that's what you're going for. The falsetto parts don't flow as well..

Nice song and vibe. Reminds me of David Mathews.
