students that have applied my course and achievedprofessional status. Now what does it mean to become professionaland how do we do ité Well it has to do with strength training andthe way we think about the voice and the way we strength train in order to build enoughprofessionalâ€“ism in what it is that we're doing to be able to sing strong with confidencenight after night with consistency.

Now, to be a professional singer, there'slots involved in this and it's not just only the physical or musical side, there'sa psychological side to this, but I want to show you a few things that you can do thatwill be really, really awesome. Okayé We're just going to run through a coupleof warmup exercises that will help you understand how to clean up the voice. Now, check out my tutorial on diaphragmatic support,check out my tutorial on open throat technique, it's the precursor of what you're goingto need to do, what we are about to do here
at this level. We're going to sing an AA vowel, and theAA vowel scale is going to go like this. Layâ€¦ Ahhhâ€¦ So AA and Ah, and we're going to actuallyslowly go through this to start to strength train the voice, here we go. Ladies, you'll do this up the octaveâ€¦ Layâ€¦
Ahâ€¦ Do this with us in octavesâ€¦ Layâ€¦ Ahâ€¦ Now, going between vowels, AA and Ah helpresiliency and the ability to relax the cords and to, with freedom, be able to go up anddown a scale without feeling tension in the throat, because we want to build strengthfor the sound. Layâ€¦
Cheating in Middle School
(Music) Ok, I don't know about you, But I don't like the way tests make me feel I get super anxious before I take a test .and then I get really depressed after I do bad on a test. We had kids in my class Who were getting gray hairs IN MIDDLE SCHOOL
Some of you are probably all like: quot;Swoozie if they were Asian, it's all genetics!quot; NO IT'S NOT! All of my Asian friends Secretly STRESS OUT like CRAZY Because if they came home, and they weren't on the honor roll there were gonna be SEVERE consequences Walk in the house like
quot;Dad! I got two C's on my report ca quot;(thick Asian accent) WHATé!é!é! YOU GET A TWO C ON REPORT CARDéé!é! YOU DISGRACE YOUR WHOLE FAMIREE!! TIME TO DIE!!! HYAAAAAAHH (Fighting game yells) (Fighting game announcer) ULTRAAAAAA COMBOOOOOOO
(Fighting Game announcer) Perfect! And see with me, I would TRY studying But there would always be that moment where I just kinda snap out of Study Mode And. realize what I'm staring at on the page and be like: quot;Y squared minus X+6quot;
and I think to myself: quot;YES, this is TOTALLY NEVER gonna help me in life! fuck ALL of 'dis, okayé Imma go watch TV.quot; And, see, when I was in middle school me and my dad made a little deal.
He told me if I made the honor roll, he would buy me a 27inch TV and let me put it in my bedroom! And see, the ONE class I did not have to worry about was French Class The teacher would just teach us French words and then teach us basic conversation and once a week she would turn off all the lights
8 Guitar Chords You Must Know Beginner Guitar Lessons
Hey I'm Nate Savage. In this lesson I'm goingto teach you eight guitar chords that you must know if you're a guitar player. Now,if you already know these chords that's fine, but stick around, I'm gonna be giving sometips on making your chords sound great and clean, and your chord transitions sound smoothtoo. Now, I believe it was the great Chet Atkinsthat said quot;I never made a dime above fivequot;, and he was referring to the fifth fret onthat. And one of the things he was talking about when he said that was open chords, hewas referring to open chords. And Chet Atkins being the virtuoso that he was, him sayingthat quot;I never made a dime above fivequot; is awesome
because it should tell you the importanceof these open chords that we're going to learn in this lesson. They're really important foryour career as a guitarist. The eight chords we're going to be tacklingin this lesson are: G major C major D major F major E major A major
E minor and A minor. You may be saying, quot;Nate that's a lot of chords, there's no way I could rememberthis in one lessonquot;. Don't worry about that. Space these out over a few weeks or even afew months, take them at your own pace. So let's get started with a G major chord.Bring your hand up to the guitar and pretend like you're holding an apple or something.That's a good posture to think about when you're making chords. Come put your thumbon the back of the neck right there, and just
relax. Make sure to relax when you're doingall of these. You shouldn't have a lot of excess tension in your hand. Now, when youare making this G major chord you can use either the first, second and third fingers,or you can use the second, third and fourth fingers. I would really really encourage youto use the second, third and fourth fingers. I'll show you later why, but for now try itwith the second, third and fourth. If it's too hard for you for right now you can usethe first, second and third. Okay, come and put your third finger on thethird fret of the low E string, and you'll want to notice a couple of things. I'm comingright down on the very tip of my finger. I'm
not being lazy and letting my finger hangover like this. That's a really important part of making chords. You want to come rightdown on the very tip of your finger. You'll also want to notice that my finger is rightbehind the fret wire right here. So those two things. Come right down on the very tipof your finger, and try to come right behind the frets too. So that's your first note. The second note, the second finger on thesecond fret of the A string right there. Again, the very tip of your finger. Now your pinkyis going to come grab the third fret of the high E string, right behind the fret, righton the tip of your finger. Strum all six strings.
And like I said, you can make this with yourfirst, second and third fingers if that's too hard for you, but I would really encourageyou to use your second, third and fourth fingers. Alright, let's move on to the C major chord,and one tip I want to give you here is don't kink your wrist too far this way when you'remaking when you're making chords. That can hurt after a while. So, I mean my wrist isn'tgoing to be perfectly straight, it's going to be a little bit bent, but don't kink ittoo far, otherwise it might start hurting you.So let's learn this C major chord. This is a great chord to let you know if you're comingdown on the very tips of your fingers, and
