Singing Help


Recommended Posts

Ok ive been having a few problems singing in "middle" voice (i think it's called that anyway...). Anyway the point where you move from chest to head voice. I think i keep going into falsetto if im singing around that bit otherwise you can hear a deffinate jump from chest to head. If anyone understands this help would be appreciated. Thanks

I understand it, but i can't help you. I guess it's all about practicing

more energy usually does it but hurts the chords more

try breathing more from the top of your chest perhaps (more nasal passage instead of chest) and it'll be easier to hit the notes until you've widened your range more so you can hit it in true full voice...geddy lee is master at this :drevil:

relax your shoulders, try to suck in air into the diaphragm, LOCK the cage with your ribs. don't OVER tighten it, but make sure you give enough air to the chords to sustain the singing.

don't try HOLDING your breath. that doesn't make sense. the belly should be sucked UP as the ribcage tightens and the diaphragm expands.

try this breathing technique with your normal voice first. feel it around until you get the strongest voice possible. Put your palm on the chest, sing a normal tone with this breathing technique.

You should feel your chest vibrating slightly, if not. Then you aren't singing properly.

When you feel it vibrating, it's called CHEST voice. The voice resonates in your chest.

Try doing some scales. with your palm on the chest and shoulders still relaxed.

Do a GOOD warmup. 5-10 minutes with different scales up and down. Try them in reverse order.

This is a GREAT method to both warm up your chords, and also give you better range.

The more you do this the chords are gonna strengthen and your voice will build a character too,

but make sure that in this process, that you are standing infront of a mirror, so you can see how you do this.Try different ways if manipulating the vowels and sound with your MOUTH.

Good singers create their own voice by finding places in their mouths and throat to get a cool sounding voice. Try putting your head up, widening your mouth, bend and stretch the mouth/throat area until you've explored different sounds. What hurts and what doesn't hurt.

The tought and told way of reaching the high notes is to relax your jaw, open your mouth normally and put your chin on your chest. this way you should get the most of your higher range.

Then remember, AIR doesn't give you controlled high notes, you have to sustain a steady airflow.

it WILL also get HARDER to hit high notes with less air, but this is a SAFE way to get to your first limits.

As you hold your palm on your chest, go from the very bottom of your comfortable voice to what you feel is a comfortable high voice. As you reach the higher/tones you should feel that the chest vibrates less.

Try adding a little more air to it now, as you go up the range! REMEMBER!! DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT A PROPER WARMUP!!!!! When you hit the even higher ranges now, the chest shouldn't be vibrating and you are hitting some pretty high notes. NOT TOO HIGH THOUGH!!

When the chest stops vibrating and you are "up there", this is called "HEAD VOICE".

Congrats, now try singing in head voice in SPEAKING COMFORT LEVEL. DO NOT STRAIN OR STRESS YOUR VOICE and CHORDS. IT WILL CAUSE DAMAGE!!! DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RASP YOUR VOICE!!!!!

The RASP is highly misunderstood by most ppl, and shouldn't be used until a STRONG basis is built.

Great singers use a different rasp than just choking the air supply or increasing the airflow.

ALSO!!! sucking in air in your lungs and just push out air to get a voice isn't singing.

you will only end up finding your self straining and holding back your throat because of the gigantic pressure put on the chords. This will HURT your voice. SECOND, get a NORMAL volume down, singing loud as a motherfucker isn't for everybody to do, practice till you get a GOOD volume, and expect a LITTLE jump in volume as you go to the higher range. It won't be alot of an increase, but the higher frequency of sound penetrates the air easier than the lower ones.

This is also why many singers back away from the microphone when they go UP.

One more thing, keep your throat RELAXED!! straining or pulling muscles together doesn't help.

I'll get back to this another time. For now.

Build your OWN voice. This is an EASY and SAFE way to do it. You'll need atleast one year of solid training and practicing these methods to get down the voice right.

if you have any questions and if some things aren't clear. PLEASE DO ASK!!

I'm just a human like you. :)

BTW, these are all guidelines. If something quite doesn't work out for you, figure out your own way of doing this.
