Beginners Singing Lessons Help

Fast video on Support. And what some perceive as assistance is a squeeze. Not really assistance. I fell into the trap years ago but identified my way out. Hope this …

  1. Thanks! that support AKA Laugh is EXACTLY what I was looking for for about
    a month! SO SIMPLE! Thanks! also, thumbs up for the WHISTLE in the other
    video :)

  2. Duchito I have a hard time humming in my upper voice. I feel is causes
    strain but if it works for you that’s great. As far as high c ‘s and that
    area don’t try and tighten my stomach as much as I just push it out like a

  3. Cool video, Daniel, i totally get what you mean, I was doing that thing for
    a couple of months until a teacher told me to not sing so operatic but to
    bring the tone forward, at my teeth and lips. So when I do “mm” with closed
    mouth I am supposed to feel my lips and front teeth tingling or vibrating.
    Is that correct? And what about higher notes B, C, D, should they also
    resonate that way? Your hair grew awesome since last video !

  4. well yes, obviously something like Journey, Bruno Mars, Prince would be
    sung with much less compression and more resonance from the sinus cavity
    than that heavy, open throated dark (classical) configuration. Trying to
    sing in upper mix with that classical sound is much too heavy. One can sing
    high C’s with that heavy sound but it takes a very long time to master and
    even then it doesn’t sound appropriate for modern music.

  5. In all seriousness- You get to the point so quickly. So many teachers out
    there just beat around the point until their point is lost. Nice one
    Daniel. Thanks.

  6. Actually I am squeezing there. I know this because its a thing i do with my
    throat for effect and it feels a certain way. I know what you are talking
    about and it sounds similar but has much more overtones and isn’t as
    taxing. Although i wouldnt suggest singing Journey like that. As you ascend
    the cords get thinner(vibrating mass gets smaller) and resonance takes over
    for sound if you wanna sail up there ala steve perry, tony harnell, ryan
    shaw etc..Well thats how i look at it.

  7. Technically the “heavier” tone you demonstrate is not “incorrect” – it’s
    just another fold compression level from the Steve Perry demonstration.
    There are 3 different levels of fold compression – light, medium and heavy
    and each have their own application. The open throat sound you make at 5:38
    is simply an open throat, darkened tone. That sound is about timbre and
    tongue position and inot made from squeezing the folds; it’s from sub
    glottal compression which comes from support.
