How To Sing Better Tips To Learn How To Sing Better Today
How to Sing Hi. My name is Aaron from Superior SingingMethod and in this tutorial, I want to talk about how to sing. OK. How to sing, kind of a broad topic butI'm going to narrow it down. At the end of this, I want to give you a really good exercise,one of my favorite exercises that will get you a little farther down the road of actuallyhow to sing. But let's talk for a minute about how to sing. What does that even mean to learnhow to sing and sing betteré I break it down into sometimes three, sometimes four differentcategories but I will give you four right
now. Learning how to sing is learning the instructionpart. So right now, this is part of the instruction. I'm going to give you that vocal exercisebut just to give you a little bit of instruction about the voice and how it works and how singingworks because the more you know about the voice and how the voice works when it comesto singing, the more you can apply these techniques and concepts to singing and to the exercisethemselves to start shaping your voice the way you want it to be so you have the besttone, the most resonant, full kind of sound. You can hit the high notes, all that kindof stuff.
So instruction is the first part. The secondpart is then I guess kind of obvious is the exercises. You got to have the exercises becausethe exercises are just like the rest of your body. You need to work out, exercise to keepin shape and to be able to make your body do the things that you want it to be ableto do to have the flexibility and the strength to do what you want to do. Third one is systematic. Learning singingsystematically is really the way to go. The link below is I have an eightweek systematicprogram that you can check out at some point but I believe that systematic is the way togo because you learn the right thing at the
right time and you're not only systematicallydoing the exercises but you're also learning the things in the right order and doing thingsin the right amount of time and repeating there's a lot of repetition which leads meto the next one and that's just being consistent. Use the repetition to consistently build andbuild and build your voice. So those are kind of the four main thingsand just along the lines of that last one, the repetition is I know that's kind of thedifficult part, righté I think we live in a culture that we don't want to do thingsover and over and we don't want to like work really hard to get to things and I get thatand with these tutorials, my point and my goal
is get you singing as good as you could possiblysing as fast as possible for sure but it does take repetition and it takes time. As youdo the exercises, this one that I'm about to give you and other exercises of courseyou need a variety of exercises but this is a really good one. It's not just going to take once and you'regoing to sing better. You know that. Intuitively, you know you're not just going to get betterby, Oh, do this exercise for 10 minutes and I can sing better. But if you do it this consistentlyfor two or three days, a week, two weeks, those kinds of things, you will start it'snot like all of a sudden you will be like
the greatest thing in the world but you willnotice a marked improvement in your voice. You will see improvement and that will encourageyou to be more consistent and get more instructions. Do more exercises. Do the systematic thingand the consistency and repetition. So what I want to talk to you about today,the instructional part, and this is all instruction but the instruction part of the actual voiceand how it works. What I want to talk about is the larynx. This is one of the problemsthat most singers have is that when they go to sing high notes, what they're doing isthey're raising their larynx up. Maybe you do this as well. When I'm not paying attentionand I'm singing, sometimes I still even do
Fender Precision Bass Custom Shop 59 Scotts P Bass of Doom
Hey, how are you doingé Scott, here, fromScott's Bass Lessons. How are you doingé If you haven't been to scottsbasslessons make sure you do so straight after this tutorial, because there isloads and loads, in fact, hours, of free tutorials and lessons on therefor you. So go check them out. I've had a load of emails over the last weekabout this bass that I used in a tutorial last week. It's the P Bass thatI use. It is a., let me get this right. It's a Custom Shop Heavy Relic.I think it's a 59 reissue. Yes, it is. It's a 59 reissue Custom Shop HeavyRelic. It's a Fender Precision.
It's the P Bass that I use if I'm doing thetype of gig that I really want that P Bass tone on. It's got a real fat,warm sound. It's got one pick up, so can't go wrong. Generally, I use it withthe tone all the way off which gives me this. Kind of P note vibe. That'swhat I'm going for. With the tone all the way up you get more of a hollowsound. But for me, it's all about this. The thing about P Bass is the neck shapesdiffer tremendously through the years. So, I think and I'm saying 'I think'because I know there's
probably some guys watching this that reallyknow what they're talking about when it comes to different types ofbasses these, the late 50's ones, which this one is essentially a copyof, have a really thick neck. It's probably, I would say, the thicknessof a normal five string neck in all honesty. So, it's quite hard to, if you'removing around quite fast you've got to be very, what's the wordé Veryprecise in where your fingers are going, because there's a lot of room thatyou're trying to cover on the fingerboard. It's maybe not built essentiallyfor zooming up and down the
fingerboard like a lot of younger guys aredoing these days. But the sound is killing. That's where I reallythink that P Basses really excel. It's in the mix of the band they justseem to fill so much room. It's really, really nice. I have got flatwounds on it. I should've said that as well which are the strings. Theseare la bellas I think and again, it just adds to that really fat sound. If you haven't tried a P Bass, I was neverreally into P Basses. I was always like, jazz bass, jazz bass, jazz bass.Then, I tried a P Bass. I was
at a jam session a friend of mine was running,and I got up and tried his P Bass. I was like, 'Whoa, this is amazing,I want one.' Hence, I treated myself to this. I'm really happy with it. So, yes, go check it out. Check some P Bassesout. It might not be your thing, but try and play them in a live situation.That's what I'd try and do if I were you instead of just trying themin a shop. Because you don't really get the full total capabilities ofit, you don't understand them or I didn't, when I was playing it in a shop.But when I got in a live
situation I was like, 'Wow.' It really cooksthrough, but it also fills the space as well. It's almost like an upright modern bass. Thatmakes sense as well actually, because Leo Fender, the guy who designed them.You know, these were one of the first electric basses if not the first.I don't know. You guys out there that know what you're talking aboutI'm sure you'll comment below in my YouTube thing. So, yeah, is this the firstelectric bassé I'm not sure. If it is, it makes sense because it's gotthat really fat neck. It's almost
