How To Sing Better Tips To Learn How To Sing Better Today

How to Sing Hi. My name is Aaron from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing. OK. How to sing, kind of a broad topic butI'm going to narrow it down. At the end of this, I want to give you a really good exercise,one of my favorite exercises that will get you a little farther down the road of actuallyhow to sing. But let's talk for a minute about how to sing. What does that even mean to learnhow to sing and sing betteré I break it down into sometimes three, sometimes four differentcategories but I will give you four right

now. Learning how to sing is learning the instructionpart. So right now, this is part of the instruction. I'm going to give you that vocal exercisebut just to give you a little bit of instruction about the voice and how it works and how singingworks because the more you know about the voice and how the voice works when it comesto singing, the more you can apply these techniques and concepts to singing and to the exercisethemselves to start shaping your voice the way you want it to be so you have the besttone, the most resonant, full kind of sound. You can hit the high notes, all that kindof stuff.

So instruction is the first part. The secondpart is then I guess kind of obvious is the exercises. You got to have the exercises becausethe exercises are just like the rest of your body. You need to work out, exercise to keepin shape and to be able to make your body do the things that you want it to be ableto do to have the flexibility and the strength to do what you want to do. Third one is systematic. Learning singingsystematically is really the way to go. The link below is I have an eightweek systematicprogram that you can check out at some point but I believe that systematic is the way togo because you learn the right thing at the

right time and you're not only systematicallydoing the exercises but you're also learning the things in the right order and doing thingsin the right amount of time and repeating there's a lot of repetition which leads meto the next one and that's just being consistent. Use the repetition to consistently build andbuild and build your voice. So those are kind of the four main thingsand just along the lines of that last one, the repetition is I know that's kind of thedifficult part, righté I think we live in a culture that we don't want to do thingsover and over and we don't want to like work really hard to get to things and I get thatand with these tutorials, my point and my goal

is get you singing as good as you could possiblysing as fast as possible for sure but it does take repetition and it takes time. As youdo the exercises, this one that I'm about to give you and other exercises of courseyou need a variety of exercises but this is a really good one. It's not just going to take once and you'regoing to sing better. You know that. Intuitively, you know you're not just going to get betterby, Oh, do this exercise for 10 minutes and I can sing better. But if you do it this consistentlyfor two or three days, a week, two weeks, those kinds of things, you will start it'snot like all of a sudden you will be like

the greatest thing in the world but you willnotice a marked improvement in your voice. You will see improvement and that will encourageyou to be more consistent and get more instructions. Do more exercises. Do the systematic thingand the consistency and repetition. So what I want to talk to you about today,the instructional part, and this is all instruction but the instruction part of the actual voiceand how it works. What I want to talk about is the larynx. This is one of the problemsthat most singers have is that when they go to sing high notes, what they're doing isthey're raising their larynx up. Maybe you do this as well. When I'm not paying attentionand I'm singing, sometimes I still even do

Massive Attack Teardrop Guitar Lesson Drue James

♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Hi guys Drue James here. My second tutorial. Now the song that I'm playing is Massive Attack's classic called quot;Teardropquot; Which is one of my favourite songs. I've only just recently learnt how to play it, so I'm looking forward to teaching it to you. So to start with the song, what we're doing is, first of all the guitar is not in standard tuning So obviously, if you've seen the first tutorial, the quot;Chasing Carsquot; tutorial, you know that the strings are normally in Eddie, Ate, Dynamite, Good, Bye, Eddie, or E, A, D, G, B, E.

But for this song, you need to down tune your top string,your thickest string, you need to loosen it until you've got the sound of D. So, you've now got Dynamite Ate Dynamite Good Bye Eddie. Okay, so this one is tuned down. And that gives you one of the notes you're gonna need for the song. So to get started on the song. first of all, what you need to do is. You need to take your 1st finger, or index finger. I'll just number the fingers quickly, so it's 1, 2, 3, 4 'cause I do talk a lot in numbered fingers. You need to take your 1st finger and hold it down on the Eddie Ate Dynamite GOOD string, on the 2nd fret.

Hopefully you can see that. So you're taking your 1st finger and popping that there. Then you're taking your 2nd finger, your middle finger, and you're putting it down on the 3rd fret, on the Eddie Ate Dynamite Good BYE string, so the B string. Okay, so it should look something like that. Great Next, now what you need to do, is you need to hold down as close to the fret markers as possible So that you can sound the notes, but also because we're going to be doing quite a stretch in this song. So you're going to be stretching your hands. It's not something I'd recommend as the first song you play, if you're a complete beginner.

So you've got your fingers in the relevant positions now. Now that makes the basis for the beginning of our song So I'd like you to start by picking the G string, where you're holding down the 2nd fret, twice, so you go. ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Okay, so that's your first part. Then, you're skipping the B string and going to the E string, so you're going. ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Okay, so just try that with me.

♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Good. So that's the part at the beginning, so we're going. ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ And the next note is the open B string ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ That's my mistake (laughs). Bad start. So it's the G string, open E, G.

Okay, so it's. ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Okayé So hopefully you've got that. ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Then it's the open B string, open G, open B, G. Okayé Sorry, it's not an open B, you're holding it down on the 3rd fret (laughs). Ok, so it's. ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬

Tuning Guitar How to Tune Guitar with a Digital Tuner

Hi, this is Jeff with Austin Bazaar Music, and today we're going to take a look at how to tune your guitar with a digital chromatic tuner. Now this is going to work for your electric guitar, your acoustic guitar, your nylon string guitar. As long as it's not a baritone guitar, this is going to work just fine. Now the first thing you're going to need to know are the notes that the strings are actually tuned to. So the notes are going to be: E, A, D, G, B, E. Now the way that this tuner works is that there is a needle, and if it's straight in the middle, then youknow that your string is in tune. If it's over to the left, then you know that you'rea little quot;flatquot; (or below the note).

If it's to the right, then you know that you'retoo far above the note, or what we call quot;sharp.quot; So let's play this first string and see where we land. So we can see we're a little bit to the left, which means we're flat. And I'll go ahead and tighten this string up by turning it counterclockwise until the tuner turns greenand we know that we're in tune. Now this next string here, reading quot;Aquot; we cansee that we're below the note, so again I'm going to turn this machinehead counterclockwise until the tuner turns green, and we're in the middle. quot;Dquot; is the next string, and we're just barely touching up here. Now let's see on the quot;Gquot; string, I'll make this go sharp. And so you can see it's too far to the right,

and we're just going to loosen the tensionon the string by going this way. And then bring it back up, because we missed it. beautiful. And now the quot;Bquot;. it's good to go. And the quot;Equot; is all good. So now the tuner's telling us that we're in tune. We're going to go ahead and check that against our ear. Sounds good to me.
