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
Beginners Piano Be playing in under 10 minutes
Hello there My name's Andy,I'm going to show you how easy it can be to to play the piano.or to teach yourself to play the piano Don't get me wrong, it'll take many years of daily practice to reach any sort of a decent level of playing but getting started doesn't need to be as traumatic as it might seem. In fact, by the end of this tutorial
you'll be playing some recognizable music on the piano Now in this tutorial I'm going to show you how to find some notes on the keyboard, how to find ALL of the notes on the keyboard,and how to play some basic chords These will enable you to play more tunes than you can image So lets get down to it. The notes. If you have a full sized piano keyboard you'll see that there are 88 keys, black and white keys
some electronic keyboards will have significantly less it doesn't really matter. It isn't actually as complicated as it seems. The keys are actually made up in groups of 12 notes, repeating groups of 12 notes.The notes are named A. B. C. D. E. F. and G. Then it goes back to A again
A and so on. B. C. D. etc. The simplest key to play in on the piano is the key of C. This uses just the white notes no black notes There are several Cs on the piano keyboard. If you look at the keyboard you'll see that its made up of 3 and 2 the black notes are made up of 3 and 2
so if you take one of the groups of 2. any of the groups of 2 look immediately to the left of the first black note and thats your C there is another group of 2 here, and immediately to the left is another C. and here's another one up here The C in the center of the piano, this one here
is known as 'Middle C' for obvious reasons on some MIDI keyboards or software it is sometimes referred to as C3 This will be our starting point for the scale of C major, playing only the white keys the notes will be named as follows. C. D. E. F. G. A. B. C.
