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

How to Do Riffs and Runs With Your Voice Felicia Ricci
Hey friends, today we're going to be talking about riffs and runs. (vocalizes) And I'm going to give you three strategies to ensure that your riffs are clean, supported, and just sound really cool. Now admittedly, I'm not the best riffer in the world but through my struggles I come up with some really, I think succint and helpful approaches that are gonna get you to break through some of those technical walls. So quick intro, my name is Felicia.
You can call me Fel. I'm a professional voice finder, I help you find your voice. By linking your mind to your body and giving you the simplest and most potent cues that are gonna give you real results for your voice fast. Reusing the imaginary riff that I made up, it goes like this: (riff sound) Okayé So.
(riff sound) Okayé That's just whatever. I'm just basically breaking down the principles of riffing that make it successful and how you can sort of achieve them yourself. So the first principle that makes riffing possible is that when you're riffing, you're using a very small amount of vocal chords. It's a very small feeling and it's basically if you, the way your voice works if your folds come together like this when you sing (both pink fingers closing and opening as example).
And when you riff, you use the inner most part of your chords and that's really the most agile part of your voice and that sort of allows you to kinda dance along the tops of the notes. (riffing sound) It's like very light versus (riffing sound) versus a sound that's very big and uses a lot of chords. So in order to make that focused feeling of using a smaller amount of chord easier for you,
it actually helps to practice your riffing on narrow vowels. A narrow vowel would be like an 'e' or an 'ohh' versus something like an 'ah' or an 'uh'. If you try your favorite riff on an 'ah' (riffing sound) Now that's achievable. But it's a lot harder to start there, so I suggest you take your favorite riff and you create an 'ohh' sound. Now as you do that 'ohh', make sure you're kinda laughing or yawning on the back of your throat
but you're funneling it forward and what it helps to do is just reinforce that feeling of a narrowfocused sound, and then on top of that, I want you to keep it very small and soft. (riffing sound) It's just a lot more achievable. So what's the baselineé Now, when you're using the small amount of chord what's also happening in a successful riff is that
