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

Ob La Di Ob La Da The Beatles Piano Lessons

this excerpt from the public televisionprogram the piano guy is brought to you by the RolandCorporation Let's work through atune called Ob La Di Ob La Da it's really a fun party tune that The Beatles did although it has a lotta syncopation whenyou hear it on the recording what I wanna go through with you now arethe very basics of the tune I always recommend when you're just first starting to learn a new tune I think it's really important to just learn

the chords and the melody line that goes with itand then when you have that kinda foundation you can add to it all the tricks and tips and things like that so let's go and dig right in on this onenow the chords on all these I'm going to suggest that you look up asalways with chord charts I know we talk about that a lot but thereality is when you're learning to play in this style using lead sheet with themelody line and chord symbols you really just need to to get thosechords underhand and although I'll show you

on screen here my suggestion is to find chord chartswhether in a chord Book, chord wand, online or in an electronic devices called a chord finder however you do it the trick is to just learn the chordsonce and then it kinda like learning how to ride a bicycle you'll never forget ityou keep using it on and on Let's dig in, now this tunestarts with a simple G chord right there and again don't imitatemy finger positions here I'm doing this

so you can see it well on TV starts out goes to a D7 chord back to the G Simple enough and then to a C major chord G, okay but that's the firstlittle section there one comment I wanna make about themelody as well, understand that you

absolutely positively should not try toplay the melody exactly as its notated you know you need to use a lead sheet asa guide so you want to get started you need to know in this case it started ona B note but you certainly wouldn't want a play it exactly as it is notated likethis you know something very stilted and verystraight and metronomic that's not the way we want to play in this style instead you wanna play you know kindathe way you would have heard on the recording or the way you would sing ather hum it

so go ahead and feel free to do that as wellnow pushing on Were now at the section where itstarts doing . so we are on G chord and the melody goes okay it just spellsout the exact same chord in your right hand going to Bminor to Em and then back to G same thing
