How To Sing Good 3 Easy Tips For How To Sing Good

Hi there. Aaron here from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing good. OK. How to sing good. The ironic thing aboutthe statement how to sing good is it is bad grammar. So let me just get that out of theway first. How to sing well, yeah, that's better grammar. So this is not a grammar lesson.This is actually a singing lesson so let's jump into that. How to sing well, how to sing good. Firstof all, at the end of this, I want to give you a good vocal exercise that will help youto be able to sing well and it's one of my

favorite ones. It's a good warmup exercisethat will kind of get you going in the morning as well. It's the only one you do. It's agood one to start with. So how do you sing wellé What are the different things that ittakes to learn how to do thaté First of all, understanding the voice. Thereare two probably yeah, three main things I think. It's like understanding the voice,learning proper technique and doing vocal exercise. So last one I'm going to give youis that vocal exercise. So understanding the voice, what does that meané Things like nasality. A lot of people whenthey sing, they sing and it just sounds kind

of like this. It sounds nasally and nasallydoesn't come across. It doesn't sound very good and nobody really wants to hear a nasallysinger. So understanding the voices, understandinghow to for example, it would be how to get rid of the nasality in your voice and it couldbe a lot of things but mostly it's probably the soft palate and I won't go too much intoit now. But soft palate is just beyond the hard palate which is the roof of your mouth.Soft is set behind there and usually nasally means soft palate is down too low. So understanding the voice, understandingthat the voice is a delicate instrument, understanding

that when you yell and you're like tryingto belt a note, like that, that puts a lot of strain on your voice and doesn't soundgood with tone but it also can hurt your voice. So just understanding those there is a lotof things to understand about the voice. These are just a couple of examples. The second thing is learning proper technique.Proper technique is things like learning how to breathe from your diaphragm. Breathingfrom your diaphragm is taking a just to give you a little, tiny glimpse of what it is,it's basically having proper posture, taking that complete breath and allowing your diaphragmto descend, creating space for your lungs

to be able to expand and your stomach cavityand as you sing, the tendency is to let your chest kind of collapse, to fall like that.But instead of doing that, keeping your chest nice and high, like kind of just like I amnow, not super high. Those are some of the basics of learning howto diaphragm breathe. So that's learning the proper techniques and there are a lot of techniquesof learning how to sing but that was just one example. So it's understanding the voice, learningproper technique and then doing vocal warmups. Vocal warmups are important because yourvoice is made of muscle and cartilage and

you need to build up those muscles to be ableto manipulate the notes the way you want to and to be able to sing all the things youneed to sing and know what your voice is going to do when. You need to strengthen those musclesso that they respond the way that you want them to respond when you're singing, rightéRight. So let's get to the voice exercise. This isa good one. It's one of my favorites as like a morning exercise. It's going to be Zs, Zs,We're going to do Zs on just basically five notes descending. So it's going to be vocalexercise. I started a little low. I will start a little higher. vocal exercise Dothat with me. vocal exercise And then you

The Basic 12 Bar Blues Riff Blues Guitar Lesson 4

Hi! I'm Nate Savage and welcome to tutorial 4of the Blues Guitar QuickStart Series. So far throughout the series, we've been reallyfocusing on learning the 12bar blues progression and applying our power chords and dominant7th chords to that progression. It's important that you learn how to dressup your rhythm blues guitar playing and one way to do that is through blues riffs. Inthis lesson we're going to learn the most basic blues riff and in the next lesson, we'regoing to dress that riff up even more. Now, for this basic blues riff we're goingto be learning, there's quite a bit stretching involved. So don't feel bad if you can't getit right away. Just know that it may take

some work to get that stretching down. Whatwe're basically going to be doing is outlining the chords throughout the 12bar blues progressionwith this riff and we're going to be applying a heavy shuffle rhythm to these riff too.So keep that in mind. We're also going to be introducing some muting to give your stylea bit of a more bluesy sound. Let's just jump right into this. So in our12bar blues progression, the first four measures are over a I chord. So we need to learn thisriff that goes over the I chord. And it's pretty simple. You're going to start of withjust an E power chord and you're going to play that twice with a swung feel. That's it. Thenext little half of this riff, you're going

to leave your index finger where it is andthen come down on the 4th fret of that A string right there. And you're going to do the samething; you're going to play 2 swung eighth notes. And believe it or not, that's basicallythe entire riff. You're just going to repeat it over and over again. So the whole littlechunk is this. So that takes up only 2 beats, so in order to get it a whole measure forthis riff, we have to play that thing twice and that will take up 1 measure in the 12barblues righté So 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and. So that takes up for 1 measure. We have 4measures of the I chord so do a little bit of math you're going to find out you have to play 8 timesto fit over 4 measures of the I chord for

the first 4 bars in the 12bar blues riffso 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and. Alright now the 12bar blues riff switchesto the IV chord in this case, that's an A chord righté So we need to kind of adapt thisriff to play over our A chord. We're going to do the exact same thing. Just make an Apower chord, index finger, first finger on the 2nd fret of the D string and you're goingto play just the 5th and 4th strings. Same exact thing so 2 swung eighth notes there.Then you're going to come down on the 4th fret of the D string and again play 2 moreswung eighth notes. And that's your basic riff over the A chord. And again, we haveto play that twice to fill up 1 measure so

if we have 2 bars of A, we're going to haveto play this 4 times. Now, we have two more measures of the I chord.So we're going to go back to the riff over the A chord and play that for 2 more measuresfor 4 times. And here is where the stretching part comesin that I was talking about. We're going to go to the V chord, the B chord. What we'regoing to have to do is make a B power chord but because of the stretch that's comingup, we have to make it with your first and second fingers instead of your first and thirdfingers. So, first finger on the B note there on the 2nd fret of the A string and your secondfinger on the 4th fret of the D string. And

that's going to be your first 2 swung eighthnotes over the bar B. From there here is the stretch; you have tostretch your pinky all the way up to the 6th fret for the next 2 swung eighth notes.So that may take a while to get that stretch down but just work on going between those2 eighth notes and these two. So that's your riff over the B. You only have to do it twicebecause you only have one measure of the V chord here.Now we have the measure of the IV chord. So go back to your A riff and play 1 measurethat. Then go back to the I chord for 1 measure. And finally, we end up on the V chord for1 measure. So get that B power chord on there.
