Nik Posted August 28, 2010 Share Posted August 28, 2010 Hey all! I saw some topics about high notes, soft head vocals and such, but I'm not sure which thread would be the right one to ask, so I open a new one. I just decided to try a cover of Robert Francis' Junebug. I really like this song since heard it the 1st time, just bought the backing and I'm trying to sing it. Except the fast 2nd verse I only have one problem singing this song: The uhuhhhuhhuuhhh part. I tried to cover James Blunt before, singing at this pitch isn't really a problem, I can manage this more or less successful. In James Blunt's "Same mistake" also are parts where you have to sing uhuuhuuuhuuu. Now what I try to find out: Singing this pitch isn't that hard for me but making the uhuhuuuu is. It sounds scratchy, I feel like it needs a lot of air and power to make this sound. Often I notice that my voice stops. edit: also I kinda try to press the air out of myself (like pulling my belly inside/pressing with my diaphragm so that it gives me a bad feeling around my stomach or in other words, in the middle between belly button and the end of the rips) but I can't prevent me doing this, else I wouldn't be able to add volume to the uhuhuuuuu and it would be rather silent. What's the best way to learn to sing uhhhhhuhhhh (and also do yeaaheeaaaheeeaaaas and such, I think you get the point)? I always have troubles with these things. Maybe one reason is that I never really screamed as a kid, I think I can't even scream now - if I would try it it'll sound really odd/bad/not right. I suppost I just have to sing uhhuhhhuhhh a lot to learn it or is there a better way that maybe is less straining and will have faster success? Thanks for help! Oh and if it's helpful I could post the 1st part of my current Junebug test. Nik Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
