How To Sing Better For Guys Part 1
Is Everybody Readyé Well, Alright, then! Let'sGO!!!! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! How to Sing Better for Guys. Welcome to KenTamplin Vocal Academy, where we're going to be discussing How To Sing Better for Guys. Hi, Guys. Ken Tamplin from Ken Tamplin VocalAcademy, and I'm going to teach you a little bit about the voice and voice lessons today. This is Part One in a ThreePart series onHow to Sing Better for Guys. Now, there's a lot of different styles anda lot of different approaches to singing,
so that one subject isn't just how to singbetter for all guys, because it's how to sing better in whatever style you're looking tosing. Well, there are some very basic, nonnegotiables to singing, and I want to point out that mostof the time, not all of the time, but most of the time, guys want to sing harder thangirls. They want to get out there and just belt and wail. .and there's the other side, of R'n'B or Pop guys that are just looking to have somesoul, and some good licks, and some good tone, and good resonance, and stamina, andso forth, AND range, which we all want.
But I want to cover both aspects fairly briefly.I'm going to discuss Rock Singing first, and then I'm going to break into more Pop andR'n'B. So the very first thing is, is that we wantto have awesome posture. You want to sit up straight, or stand up straight, and by theway, when you sit, you lose up to 30% of your strength in your abdomen when you're singing,so I recommend you stand, if you can, but anyway, so you're going to want to stand,and you're going to want to take a breath from your belly, from your abdomen. Insteadof breathing like we do like this, from our chest, we want to breathe from our abdomen,from our belly, and our diaphragm. So you've
heard a lot about diaphragmatic support, soI'm not going to cover that here, I have some tutorials on my website regarding diaphragmaticsupport, and I have an amazing course called quot;How to Sing Better Than Anyone Elsequot;.So anyway, I want to talk about how to sing better for guys, so we're going to start firstwith this bright quot;PINGquot; in an quot;AHquot;vowel. quot;AH. AH.quot; I coined a phrase, it's called quot;IT'sthe LAH!!! AHHH!!quot; and it's that nice, Open Throat, Bright Ping Sound that keeps us fromsort of choking on our vowel sounds or pinching and squeezing as we go up.Now there's a lot to this but I'm going to just go through the basic elements of thisfirst, and then if you're interested, check out
my course, or check out my channel and I covera good amount of this stuff. So, we're going to start with the mean averageof singers, and that would be a baritone. And so we're going to start down in like amidbari or upper midbari range, and we're just going to go through a simple triad scalelike this: Lah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.And try to keep the jaw as stable as possible. Try not to move the mandible, or the jaw,keep it in the marble or static or stable position, we're going to continue up a triadscale, like this: Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Don't forget your breath. Take your breath,
and use your breath, bring in the breath,kind of like you're doing a situp, the feeling of how much strength is required when you'redoing a situp. So let's continue. , Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh.Take your breath. Relax the shoulders, relax the arms, relax the neck. let's continue:Nice, bright, Open AH. I don't mean quot;loh, oh, oh, ohhh. or luh, uh, uh, uhh. I meanquot;AHquot;. Lah, ah, ah, AH, ah, ah, ahhh. Do yourselfa favor. Even get out a handheld mirror and look at the back of your throat, and see ifyour throat is nice and wide open, and that your tongue is placed to the base of the jaw,so it's not causing any stricture, or any
8 Guitar Chords You Must Know Beginner Guitar Lessons
Hey I'm Nate Savage. In this lesson I'm goingto teach you eight guitar chords that you must know if you're a guitar player. Now,if you already know these chords that's fine, but stick around, I'm gonna be giving sometips on making your chords sound great and clean, and your chord transitions sound smoothtoo. Now, I believe it was the great Chet Atkinsthat said quot;I never made a dime above fivequot;, and he was referring to the fifth fret onthat. And one of the things he was talking about when he said that was open chords, hewas referring to open chords. And Chet Atkins being the virtuoso that he was, him sayingthat quot;I never made a dime above fivequot; is awesome
because it should tell you the importanceof these open chords that we're going to learn in this lesson. They're really important foryour career as a guitarist. The eight chords we're going to be tacklingin this lesson are: G major C major D major F major E major A major
E minor and A minor. You may be saying, quot;Nate that's a lot of chords, there's no way I could rememberthis in one lessonquot;. Don't worry about that. Space these out over a few weeks or even afew months, take them at your own pace. So let's get started with a G major chord.Bring your hand up to the guitar and pretend like you're holding an apple or something.That's a good posture to think about when you're making chords. Come put your thumbon the back of the neck right there, and just
relax. Make sure to relax when you're doingall of these. You shouldn't have a lot of excess tension in your hand. Now, when youare making this G major chord you can use either the first, second and third fingers,or you can use the second, third and fourth fingers. I would really really encourage youto use the second, third and fourth fingers. I'll show you later why, but for now try itwith the second, third and fourth. If it's too hard for you for right now you can usethe first, second and third. Okay, come and put your third finger on thethird fret of the low E string, and you'll want to notice a couple of things. I'm comingright down on the very tip of my finger. I'm
not being lazy and letting my finger hangover like this. That's a really important part of making chords. You want to come rightdown on the very tip of your finger. You'll also want to notice that my finger is rightbehind the fret wire right here. So those two things. Come right down on the very tipof your finger, and try to come right behind the frets too. So that's your first note. The second note, the second finger on thesecond fret of the A string right there. Again, the very tip of your finger. Now your pinkyis going to come grab the third fret of the high E string, right behind the fret, righton the tip of your finger. Strum all six strings.
And like I said, you can make this with yourfirst, second and third fingers if that's too hard for you, but I would really encourageyou to use your second, third and fourth fingers. Alright, let's move on to the C major chord,and one tip I want to give you here is don't kink your wrist too far this way when you'remaking when you're making chords. That can hurt after a while. So, I mean my wrist isn'tgoing to be perfectly straight, it's going to be a little bit bent, but don't kink ittoo far, otherwise it might start hurting you.So let's learn this C major chord. This is a great chord to let you know if you're comingdown on the very tips of your fingers, and
Allegro Mauro Giuliani Easy Lesson Classical Guitar Step by Step Tutorial Free TAB
Hey it's Roger here with Better World Guitar.Today we're going over a lesson on how to play Mauro Giuliani's Allegro. We're goingto go over the left hand and the right hand. I've got the tab down here in the description, so if you want to pull that up, and follow right along, go ahead and do that. Let's go ahead and start with measure one. Measure one is also the same as measures 9,measure 21 and measure 29. They're all the same. So we're just going to go over thisone time here. For the left hand, you put your second finger on the second fret ofthe G string, the third string. That's an A. Then your first finger on the first fretof the second string. C. For your right hand,
you're going to be using the pattern. P, I,M, I, A, I, M, I. Where P is the thumb, I is the index finger, M is the middle finger,and A is the ring finger, or your third finger. So you're plucking the fifth string with yourthumb. And then your first finger takes care of the third string. Your second finger takescare of the second string. And your third finger takes care of the E string, your higheststring there. So, we're going to go.P, I, M, I, A, I, M, I. So, that's the first measure.Let's go on to the second measure. After the first measure, we're going to go. So, you'regoing to keep your second finger planted where it was from the first measure, you're notgoing to move it, just leave that right there.
Then you hit the fifth string with your thumb.And then the third string with your i finger. Then you bring your first finger to the secondfret of the fifth string. And then you're going to hit the fifth string with your thumbagain. And then you're going to pluck the third string with your i finger again. Andthen you're going to bring your third finger up here to the third fret of the fifth string.And you're going to hit that with your thumb. Then you're going to pluck the third stringagain with your i. and then you're going to take both fingers off of there, off ofthe fifth string, and just hit the fifth string open. And then pluck that third string again.So it's. One more time. Now for the third measure, you remove your
second finger off the string there and just,you hit the open D string with your thumb. And then you want to assume the D minor positionhere with your second finger on the second fret of the third string. You want your fourthfinger on the third fret of the second string. And you want your first finger on the firstfret of the first string. So you're going to hit this D string, then you're going togo i, m, i , a, i, m, i. So, that's the third measure. Now, the first, second, and thirdmeasures all together here. Now we go to the fourth measure. And whatwe do here, coming from the third measure, your fingers are like this, now you pluckthe D string, open D string. Now you want
to bring your third finger to where your secondfinger is right there. So you're going to lift these fingers up and bring your thirdfinger down onto that second fret of the third string where your second finger just was.And you're going to pluck this open D, and then you're going to pluck the third stringwith your i finger, while your third finger is on the second fret of it. And then you'regoing to bring your second finger down to the second fret of the fourth string. Thenyou're going to pluck this third string again. And then you're going to bring your fourthfinger to the third fret of the fourth string. And you're going to pluck that with your thumb.And then you're going to pluck the third string
again with your i. And then you play the openfourth string, and then the third string with your i, and you keep your third finger plantedhere on the second fret of that third string. So, all together that fourth measure goeslike this. So, the third and fourth measures together. Alrighté Now, let's go on to the fifth measure.We are like this after the fourth measure. So what you want to do to start the fifthmeasure, bring your second finger down onto the second fret of the fourth string, pluckit with your thumb. And now what you want to do is lift up your third finger and placeyour first finger on the first fret of the
