aravindmadis Posted January 29, 2015 Share Posted January 29, 2015 To all the wonderful folks who have the patience/interest and willingness to help people in this forum.. My advance thanks to anyone who reads and drops in a line or two.. I have read some very interesting thoughts around real voice hidden sometimes behind singers and how singers should avoid trying to sing differently from their spoken voice. I realized this was a big issue for me because I have a tendency to make simple notes within my range too complicated, like for instance over supporting easy notes in the middle of my range. I started experimenting with my voice and trying to get a "closer to spoken" quality. I also started with vocal workouts and for first time tried "The Hero" workout while observing the notes(on reaper DAW).. I think that my second passagio is at A#4 - B4 Consider this version of "let it be" that I recorded earlier(ignore pitch inaccuracies). To me it sounds like I have a pretty baritone quality on the lower notes, but at the same time my G4-A4 sounds pretty full too. I am absolutely not straining to sing these notes(the chorus). I have always been unable to address whether I have a low or a high voice. Then I came across this article http://www.voiceteacher.com/leggiero_tenor.html I thought this sentence sounded pretty accurate while describing my voice an I have always been confused about my voice(light or dark character and again high or low voice) - "many instructors hear this voice type as Baritone because the Leggiero Tenor usually has a strong and colorful chest register, often extending quite low".. 1. This combined with my second passagio break at A#4/B and I am reasonably sure my voice type sounds pretty close to the description of the"leggiero_tenor".. I understand this as a "Dark" and "High" male voice.. Is this correct/ 2. What singers(contemporary rock/pop have similar type of voices)? I am trying to understand what songs would suit me and I want to work on my strengths.. Personally the singers I relate to most are Freddie Mercury and Bruce Dickenson.. I feel with practice I can sing their songs easier than say singing Steve Perry or Paul Mc Cartney. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
