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
Access Contact Template Contact Management System CMS Music by Ken Gaines cc
Is your contact information scattered all overé Do you want to organize ité Hi, this is Crystal. I've just posted a new version of my free contact management application for Access. I hope you take the time to go get it and use it. The download link is in the tutorial description. The music for this tutorial come from Ken Gaines of Houston. The main form of the Contacts database is called fc_MENU_CONTACT.
On the contact page, you can enter people and companies, addresses, phone numbers, websites, and email addresses. People and companies both have contact information and you will find them listed together, just like a phone book. You can find records a number of ways. What you will use the most is the Find combobox in the form header. With no filters, the sample data shows 1,387 Contacts to pick from. Drop down the filter list and choose Friend. Now there are only 7 contacts in the Find combo. The Find by Address combo is also filtered for the Friend category.
A couple people marked as Friend have more than one address since I only have 7 friends and there are 9 addresses. The Find by CID combo shows every contact in the database by their CID, with is the primary key of the contacts table. You can sort the Find combo differently. Currently, people are listed by whether or not they are Active, then First name, then Last name. Company order is the same no matter how humans are sorted. With the filter on Friend, this example shows Maddison at the bottom of the list of choices since she is not Active. I clear the Filter by clicking X next to the green filter combo. Now all the names show again.
I start typing who I want to find: Brent T. Greer Here is his record. Brent has 2 address records. The Primary address is currently displayed. Brent also has a Mailing Address. There are 3 phone numbers listed, 2 email addresses, and one website. I can quickly show Brent's mailing address by Selecting Mailing from the Find Address list. The Company page shows that Brent works for A M Surplus.
Brent is marked as a Prospect. If I can't get ahold of Brent, I wonder if I can contact someone else at A M Surplus. I Double on the company combobox to switch to the record for A M Surplus. On the A M Surplus company page, notice there are 8 contacts listed. I can click on Brent's name to go back to his record. The Personal page gives you a place to enter birthday, gender, title, suffix, nick name, and mark as human or not. The Lists page shows that Brent is on my Christmas Card list. I could put Brent on more lists
If you want to add people to lists instead of lists to people, or you want to create a new list, click on the 'Lists Formquot; button. I see that Brent is the only one marked for my Christmas Card list so far. As I check boxes in the Pick Members list on the right, names are added to the List Members on the left. You can use these lists any way you like. The Notes tab shows direct notes for the contact on the left. On the right, you also see related notes.
