How To Sing Good 3 Easy Tips For How To Sing Good
Hi there. Aaron here from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing good. OK. How to sing good. The ironic thing aboutthe statement how to sing good is it is bad grammar. So let me just get that out of theway first. How to sing well, yeah, that's better grammar. So this is not a grammar lesson.This is actually a singing lesson so let's jump into that. How to sing well, how to sing good. Firstof all, at the end of this, I want to give you a good vocal exercise that will help youto be able to sing well and it's one of my
favorite ones. It's a good warmup exercisethat will kind of get you going in the morning as well. It's the only one you do. It's agood one to start with. So how do you sing wellé What are the different things that ittakes to learn how to do thaté First of all, understanding the voice. Thereare two probably yeah, three main things I think. It's like understanding the voice,learning proper technique and doing vocal exercise. So last one I'm going to give youis that vocal exercise. So understanding the voice, what does that meané Things like nasality. A lot of people whenthey sing, they sing and it just sounds kind
of like this. It sounds nasally and nasallydoesn't come across. It doesn't sound very good and nobody really wants to hear a nasallysinger. So understanding the voices, understandinghow to for example, it would be how to get rid of the nasality in your voice and it couldbe a lot of things but mostly it's probably the soft palate and I won't go too much intoit now. But soft palate is just beyond the hard palate which is the roof of your mouth.Soft is set behind there and usually nasally means soft palate is down too low. So understanding the voice, understandingthat the voice is a delicate instrument, understanding
that when you yell and you're like tryingto belt a note, like that, that puts a lot of strain on your voice and doesn't soundgood with tone but it also can hurt your voice. So just understanding those there is a lotof things to understand about the voice. These are just a couple of examples. The second thing is learning proper technique.Proper technique is things like learning how to breathe from your diaphragm. Breathingfrom your diaphragm is taking a just to give you a little, tiny glimpse of what it is,it's basically having proper posture, taking that complete breath and allowing your diaphragmto descend, creating space for your lungs
to be able to expand and your stomach cavityand as you sing, the tendency is to let your chest kind of collapse, to fall like that.But instead of doing that, keeping your chest nice and high, like kind of just like I amnow, not super high. Those are some of the basics of learning howto diaphragm breathe. So that's learning the proper techniques and there are a lot of techniquesof learning how to sing but that was just one example. So it's understanding the voice, learningproper technique and then doing vocal warmups. Vocal warmups are important because yourvoice is made of muscle and cartilage and
you need to build up those muscles to be ableto manipulate the notes the way you want to and to be able to sing all the things youneed to sing and know what your voice is going to do when. You need to strengthen those musclesso that they respond the way that you want them to respond when you're singing, rightéRight. So let's get to the voice exercise. This isa good one. It's one of my favorites as like a morning exercise. It's going to be Zs, Zs,We're going to do Zs on just basically five notes descending. So it's going to be vocalexercise. I started a little low. I will start a little higher. vocal exercise Dothat with me. vocal exercise And then you
7 Major Beginner Guitar Mistakes You Need to Know
In today's tutorial, we'll talk about the 7 majormistakes that you can make as a beginning guitar player and I'll also give you my 1tip for getting what you want out of a guitar. Good day, guys. You're in the studio withLuke from guitaristIQ . Thank you again so much for joining us. The first thing on this list of major mistakesthat beginning guitar players can make is simply not tuning their guitars regularly.Unless you have some fairly advanced custom electronics built into your guitar, then chancesare your guitar will not tune itself. Tuning your guitar isn't a setandforget type ofthing. Guitars can be quite temperamental
when it comes to tuning. They're going torespond to how you play the instrument. They're going to respond to being moved around inthe case. They're going to respond to climate, how cold it is overnight, how hot it is duringthe day as well as things like how new or how old the strings are. I don't want to blind you guys with sitesor get really deep here, but if your guitar isn't in tune, then what you're playing won'tbe in tune. So train yourself to hear when your guitar is not 00:01:21 and don't beused to the sound of an outoftune guitar. The second thing on this list of mistakesthat beginner guitar players tend to make
has to do with not practicing consistentlyenough. Less is not more when it comes to practicing the guitar. Be smart with yourtime. Work out how much time you can afford to put into your guitar playing each weekand then break that up over the week. Don't just try and do a 2 or 3hour slog on theweekend. Be chipping away that during the week 10 minutes, 20 minutes, half an hour,whatever you've allotted for practicing. You're going to find that your playing will comealong a lot quicker. We're trying to train our brain to workingwith our hands and we're trying to train our hands to working with each other and thattakes consistency over time.
The next thing on our list has to do withnot being aware of timing as a guitar player. Playing with feel and playing out of timeare two very different things. Having a good sense of rhythm or a good sense of timingis one of the main things which separates someone who sounds like they're a beginnerfrom someone who sounds confident and competent in what they're doing. It is a natural thing to kind of rise throughthe parts in a song that you know when you're learning a track and sort of slow down andstumble through the parts that you don't know so well, but learn to practice at tempos whereyou can play the whole thing consistently.
Get in the habit of practicing two thingslike a quick track or a metronome or making use of backing tracks or jam tracks when youpractice as well as maybe if you've got some simple audio software like GarageBand, youcan make your own loops to practice to. Timing is crucial. Be aware of when you'respeeding up or when you're slowing down and train yourself to play consistently. Number four on our list of mistakes that beginningguitar players tend to make has to do with trying to play too fast. Just kick it backa notch, alrighté We tend to see these guitar masters shred up and down in there, but whatwe don't see is the amount of time and effort
it takes to get to that point. Speed is not about just trying to play harderand faster. It's a byproduct of two key things and those things are accuracy and economy.Accuracy has to do with obviously playing our notes cleanly and clearly and intentionally.And economy has to do with minimizing our movements, cutting out the movements thatwe don't need to make. Our hands don't need to fluff about when we're actually essentiallyjust trying to do quite small movements on the guitar. So slow your playing down. Learn how to playcleanly and clearly and don't get yourself
