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

Play 10 Songs With 4 Chords Free Guitar Lessons

Hey I'm Nate Savage and you know, one of thebest things about the guitar is you can learn just a handful of chords and you can literallyplay hundreds of the best songs that were ever written. In the case of this lesson,I'm going to teach your four chords that you can use to play ten songs. First of all let's learn the chords that we'regoing to be using in this lesson. The first one is a G major, second one is a C major,third one is a D major, and the last one is an E minor. Okay, let's start with the G majorchord. Put your third finger on the third fret of the low E string, second finger isgoing to go on the second fret of the A string,

and your pinky finger is going to grab thethird fret of the high E string. And you can strum all six strings. Now one thing you're going to want to rememberwhen you're making these chords is come right down on your fingertips, on the very tipsof your fingers, and try to stay right behind the fret. Keep you fingers as close to behindthe fret as possible. That way you can ensure a good sound without any buzzing. Next chord, a C major. Let's take our thirdfinger and put it on the third fret of the A string, second finger is going to go onthe second fret of the D string, and your

first finger is going to come back here andgrab the first fret of the B string. Make sure to come down on the very tips of yourfingers for this chord. If you don't you will definitely notice it. Check it out. Strumthe top five strings, leave the low E string out. Watch this little change right here.If I just let my fingers get a little lazy that's going to sound terrible, so make sureto come right down on your fingertips. Next chord, D major chord, open D major. Putyour first finger on the second fret of the G string, or the third string, third fingerthird fret of the B string, second finger second fret of the high E string. Now leavethe sixth and fifth strings out, and just

strum the top four strings there. Alright, the last chord for you is just aregular E minor chord. Put your second finger on the second fret of the A string and yourthird finger on the second fret of the D string, and you can strum all six strings with thischord. Now that I've showed you those chords thatwe're going to be using let's just talk about strumming really quick in the context of thislesson. I'm going to keep things really really simple for your strumming hand or your righthand. That way you can focus on learning the songs and getting the chord changes for thesong smooth.

Alright let's get down to business here andlearn a song that uses these chords. We're gonna learn probably one of the most populartunes of all time, song by The Beatles called Let It Be. Maybe you've heard of it. Um, let's go put our G major chord on here,and I'm gonna do this in groups of two strums for your right hand just so you know. So,the verse of this tune, just strum G twice. And then go to a D. Strum that twice. E minortwice. And go to a C twice. Back to a G, a D, a C, and then back to a G one more time.And that's pretty much the entire verse to the song. It just goes through that wholeprogression twice. Let me play that progression

for you uninterrupted so you can hear whatit sounds like. So that's the verse of the tune Let It Be,and let's get to the chorus now. The chorus goes to an E minor twice, a D, C, G, stayon a G and do that two more times, go to a D, a C, and then finally end up on a G. Solet me play the entire chorus for you real quick. So as you can see, you can get through thatentire song using just these four chords. There are some walkdowns and stuff in there,but like I said we're keeping things real simple for your right hand. Um, another songthat uses almost exclusively those four chords
