m.i.r. Posted November 23, 2014 Share Posted November 23, 2014 So I am new here, been a guest here for many years lol. Finally pushed the register button lol, yall seem like a pretty cool group of people. And robert though a bit eccentric, seems like a good guy and someone whom truly cares. Plus what fun is normal anyways ha ha. Anyways to the point, so any opinions on getting a modern tone higher up in the register? I am a dead to the money spinto break wise d4 and G4. Though can kick in fairly attractive baritone weight if wanted in the chest and low head voice depending on what i am singing. However, once i pass a g4 sharp I have two options. One cover classical style, has good powerfull tone yet it loses all modern sound and color goes straight to classical "sound". Second option, can let the larynx raise just a bit "no chocking or super high placement". The tone stays modern, yet my only beef is i dont like the control of vibrato once i get to that point. On that note, what is yalls opinion of vibrato, I have the so called "perfect" vibrato before in the classical world. However i am still not sold at all that it is automatic or a bi product of free singing. I know it is automatic in a way if i choose to activate it, however, I like sound of a solid straight tone as much as vibrato in certain areas. And they both seem just as healthy if all the proper ingredients are there. Also would like to make the c5 and higher a slight more "chesty" without having to rely on the classical sounding cover. I have accomplished a decent amount in the area instrument wise, now ready to take the next step vocally. I am satisfied where i am now, but now want to upgrade to blown away ha ha. Though i am my own worst critic so i know that will never happen, but nothing wrong with giving it the college try:) Oh, forgot to say have trained in the "belcanto school" for four years, 30 years old. Range is from g2 to b5, can go slightly lower and higher however not very musical. I have also been wanting to look at lessons from a modern teacher yet can find no one i like in the dallas area, so if there are any suggestions that would be awesome! I have thought about giving robert a try, however still on the fence about skype lessons. I love to talk and have freindly debates as you can see from my many and loaded questions lol. I look forward to the replies:) Oh ps, sorry for subject jumping, i am a bit a.d.d., especially when writing:) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
