Ep 33 How to Sing Mix Part 1

How to sing mix, or how to sing with a mixis a very common question. Inside this tutorial, I'll define and demonstrate mix. Warning:normally I try to avoid this, but in this tutorial I get a little 'geeky' about singing.(Vocal geek) Hi, I'm Chuck Gilmore with Power To Sing. How to sing in a mix. Well, whatis a mixé A mix is a mixture or blend of at least two things. When singing, you're ina mix if you have a mixture of chest voice and head voice. Ahahah. If you sing onlywith chest voice, you have no mix. Ahhhh. If you start in chest and sing higher andbreak or flip into falsetto, you have no mix. Ahahah.because you've lost the connectionto your chest voice. If, when singing, you

bring falsetto down into the area of the chestvoice that is supposed to be chest, there is no mix. It's only falsetto. Ahahah. Amix can only exist if the vocal cords remain connected. If your vocal cords break intofalsetto and you do not reconnect, you have no mix. It's only falsetto. Ahahah. Mixis made with connected vocal cords and a blend of chest resonance and head resonance. Now,where is mix in the voiceé There are several schools of thought about when and where you'rein mix. Some define mix as only occurring in the vocal bridges, passaggi. When singingin chest voice, as you sing higher, and while keeping the vocal cords together, the resonancebegins to move higher from your chest into

your head cavities. The resonance splits sothere's a mixture, or a mix of both chest and head resonance. This split occurs in thebridge or passaggi. After getting through the first bridge the singer encounters a secondbridge and then a third bridge. For women, there are even more bridges. With each bridge,there is a blend of overtones from the register below and the register above. Lower overtonesdamping, or dropping out and higher overtones coming in. As a result of this process, manybelieve that mix is only occurring in the actual bridges. Some believe if the vocalcords remain connected while the resonance has split into both chest and head cavitiesthat mix is always present, both in and in

between the bridges. In other words, everythingis mix. At this point in my singing and teaching, I think it's a combination of these two. Pavarottiis reported to have said that singing was like a repeating figure 8. Seth Riggs concluded,and I believe like Seth, that Pavarotti was describing the repeated narrowing into thebridge and the opening into the new register and so on upward. In my opinion, if the vocalcords remain connected, there's always some chest residue, even if it's very slight. Soeven in the highest head voice, if the cords have remained connected, that seems like mixto me, even if it's 100 to 1, it's still a mix. At a certain point, if the cords remainconnected, does it really matter if we say

it's mix or connected super head voiceé Theproblem is, what happens to mix when you sing down below the first bridge into chesté Well,you could definitely bring mix down into the chest register. So, I understand how thatcan be mix, but in most voices, you can only do that so long before the chest voice takesover. How, then, can that be a mixé A third concept that has helpful for me, is 'maintainingthe verticalquot;.(Vocal Geek) This is mentioned in the book, quot;The Voice of the Mind', by E.HerbertCaesari. Imagine a vertical sound beam started by the vocal cords and shootingupward into the mouth. In head voice, this resonating sound beam, if it maintains thevertical direction, will angle slightly backward

and penetrate into the head cavities abovethe mouth. Ahhh. Ahahah. In chest, there is still a vertical sound beam, but it beginsto angle slightly forward and engage the hard palette. In my opinion, to lose the verticalwhile in chest voice, is to grab the vocal cord, squeeze and close the throat and jamthe sound beam down into the throat. Ahahah.Ahhh. The tone can barely escape and has no roundness,no fullness and no appeal. To me, this is not mix. Maintaining the vertical, even ifcompletely in the lower chest voice, creates an upward lift in the tone. The sound beamresonates on the hard palette appropriately. This seems to recruit more than just chestvoice by adding a rounder, fuller tone, as

Scott Devine here, founder and creator ofScott's Bass Lessons, and today I'm gonna talk about how to string a basscorrectly so you don't get weird tuning issues and stuff like that. Check thisout.

If you're watching this on YouTube,after this tutorial click the link below and it will take you through tomy website where you can get the backing track, or if you're on my websitealready, ScottsBassLessons , the link is just below this tutorial. Today.I want to talk about stringing up

your bass and how to do it so it keeps itin tune. If there's a certain few things that if you do wrongly, or if you'redoing them rightly, it can really alter the way that your bass staysin tune. The first thing is when you're taking yourstrings off, if you're not cleaning the fingerboard, do it just one stringat a time. So, replace one string at a time. If you take them all offand then put them all on, the tension of the neck will change, and for me,if I take them all of, it changes the tension of the truss rod, thenI'm messing around as well with

the truss rod when I'm putting the stringsback on, and that's something you might not want to get into if you haven'tdone before. To stop that happening, just change one string at a time,and that keeps the tension of the neck kind of the same so you don't haveto mess around with the truss rod. Obviously, if you want to clean the fingerboardup, give the frets a bit of a polish, you have to take all thestrings off. When you put the strings back on, you've got to take into considerationthat the truss rod might have changed tension a little bit, orthe strings might have altered

the tension a little bit, and you need togive it a tweak here and there. When you're taking a string off, there's nothingreally to be aware of other than I personally like to loosen thestring first, then clipping it instead of clipping all the string which I'veseen loads, people just going, clipping all the strings, and the trussrod and the neck is wobbling round like crazy, it's not that good for it.Just loosen off the string first and then cut it. You don't have to cutit, but it makes it easier to get out. Then simply, for me, I'm just threadingthat through and taking it

off here. That gives us, we can now replacethe string. Here, the first tip is, and I've done it loads.Make sure you're putting the right string on in the right order. SinceI've taken off the A string here, I want to make sure that I'm puttingthe A string on. I can count, I couldn't even count on two hands, so I'vedone it quite a lot. The amount of times I've put the wrong string on andthen I'm playing and then, 'Oh no, I need to go and buy another set of strings'.Make sure you get the right string. In this case, it's the red one.Some of them are colour coded

on the ends, some of them aren't, so makesure you check out which string you're replacing when you do it. When you're putting your strings on, it dependswhat type of bass you have. For instance, on this bass, I could stringit like this, so the ball end of the string is just sitting in the actual saddleitself behind the bridge, or on this bass, I've actually got throughthe body stringing as well, so I can put it through the body. So, I've gottwo different options there of what I can do. Now, I like through the bodybecause it gives a greater

Stopped by police for fishing in Singapore

Don't distract the driver. But it is red! You are putting our lives in danger. It's stuck. I don't wanna die, I am too young to die. Let me explain to you who is the guy that we are going to meet. Do you remember when we were going to Bishun, Bishan park or whatever is the name of that parké You mean the one with the really big fishes that we have never caughté Exactly. And then everybody started to laughing at us. correct. And putting comments on by telling that it was not Bishan. Ehé It was Oio, or something like that. Orto! Well anyway, 2 guys texted me and one of the guy is the guy that we are going to meet now. What are we going to catch todayé Best of luck. Best of luck. So we are screwed, even the uber driver doesn't believe in us. WOW, a Singaporean road. Oh my God! This is so interesting. We need to put it on right now! I will explain this to you because obviously you are a noob. Please, explain me everything. This thing is to catch a snake head. Which oneé This one, the one that looks really funky.

So, a snake head is not a snake, it's a fish. It's a fish that looks like a snake. How do you pronunce your nameé Nathanielé Nathaniel. Nathaniel. Yes. So, Nathaniel was checking the tutorial and he was like: quot;Who the F%$ are these total noobs, I really need to help them.quot; Cool! That's a cool spot! Hello. Hi. No fishing here! No, uncle. No fishing here, you fishing I make you a fine. So no fishingé Yeah no fishing allowed. No problem, no problem, it's ok. Thank you, then I can't help you. Undesrtand. Bye bye. Bye.
