Singingnewbie Posted December 31, 2014 Share Posted December 31, 2014 I always happen to like "hard" songs not because of the challenge but because of my music taste is so that like 9/10 songs are like that. Boston, Toto, generally classic rock/pop stuff 80s, power balads and such things. I am used to that kind of a challenge and seems natural for me to be out of my comfort zone. My way of training is i warm up in a somewhat slow pace for about an hour and within any range i can reach (usually from D/E2 to E/F5) and sometimes including a bit of strain or discomfort and then i will start singing my list in a roughly increasing difficulty. In another forum i had a discussion that made me think if i should change my approach to a more "safe" one. I suggested that anyone should try its own limits and not trying to sing a song by lowering the key but with achieving the proper technique but was in disagreement with someone who told me we should train within our safe range and proceed slowly raising a semitone every now and then (maybe months) and change key on songs even 3-4 semitones to keep it in our comfort zone. Truth is i believe he has a good point going safe but also that could mean very slow progress, changing the "atmosphere" of the song, fear for the high notes or whatever... Whould you suggest a more safe approach generally on training and why? Lets say we have a song that pushes our limits and its tough to sing, roughly within our range, how would you approach?
