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

Joesph A Woods Discusses the House Committee on the Judiciary Impeachent Inquiry

bjbj QyCU Naftali: Hi. I m Tim Naftali. Im director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, California.It s October 27, 2011 and I have the honor and privilege to be interviewing Joseph Woodsfor the Richard Nixon Tutorial Oral History Program. We re in Oakland, California. Mr. Woods, thankyou for doing this. Woods: Glad to be here. Naftali: Just so people get a sense of youbefore we talk about the impeachment inquiry, please tell us about your World War II experience.Woods: Well, there s really not a great deal to tell. I was a First Lieutenant and in theNavy that s a job, not a rank. The First Lieutenant s in charge of the deckhands and the integrityof the hull in response to fires and that

sort of thing and I was in the Pacific foralmost the entire service. Almost the entire service. From 1944 until I was separated in1946. Naftali: Where did you see actioné Which battles were you involved iné Woods: I wason a landing ship and for the most part the Navy sits around and waits for the next thingto happen. At least our part of the Navy did. The landings that I participated in were theinitial landing on Luzon in the Philippines, which happened at a place called LingayenGulf over on the west side of Luzon and then later it was there on the first day of thatone in January of 1945 and then April 1, 1945 at the first day landings on Okinawa. Naftali:So you thought maybe you d be involved in

the landings on Honshu, the main island ofJapan, at that timeé Woods: It would ve bee Kyushu, actually, was going to be where theywere. Yes, and I d already been given a thick book of information about what the beacheson Kyushu were like and what to expect and what to expect was all hell breaking loose,as Okinawa proved to be. The most costly battle in the Pacific War was fought at Okinawa andit was going to Okinawa squared or cubed. It was going to be really bad. Naftali: Forthis project we interviewed someone who was working for President Truman. What was yourreaction when you heard about the use of the atomic bombé Woods: Huge relief because itmeant we weren t going to have to land on

Kyushu. Naftali: s fast forward, shall we,to the 1970s and please tell me how you came to be recruited to serve on the impeachmentinquiries staff. Woods: Well, I received a telephone call early on January 1, 1974. Itwoke me up, as a matter of fact, from John Doar. I asked him did he take the job. Naftali:How did you know himé Or how did he know youé Woods: We were law school classmates at BoaltHall, the University of California Law School in Berkeley. Then I had worked with him onsome matters after he went back to Wisconsin to practice while he was still in privatepractice before he went to the Justice Department. I worked on cases with him so he knew me asa practicing lawyer and he also knew me as

a law student. Naftali: Tell us a little bitabout you and Mr. Doar in law school. What was Boalt Hall like at the time you went thereéWoods: Well, it was a very fine law school but it was a very small school. There were120 people in our class at the offset. We had some infusions from outside and we hadsome dropouts. Some voluntary and some involuntary. We wound up with a class of 80 graduatingand John Doar and I were among the 80. It was a very intimate experience. You knew allthe professors very well; you certainly knew all of your classmates pretty well. Naftali:What was Mr. Doar like as a law studenté Woods: He was a good student. Naftali: Did you socializewith him at the timeé Woods: Yes. Naftali:

What kind of law did he specialize in whenhe went back to Wisconsin to practiceé Woods: I couldn t answer that. I simply don t know.Naftali: But you worked together on some cases, you said. Woods: On some matters yes. I havein mind that he practiced at New Richland, Wisconsin, which is not a very large communityso I would imagine that his practice was quite diverse. As was ours in Oakland but I cant, beyond that, I can t answer. Naftali: Did you stay in touch with him during the 60swhen he was in the Justice Departmenté Woods: To some degree but not a whole lot. He waspretty busy, for one thing. Naftali: What kind of law did you specialize in during thatperiodé Woods: Well, I specialized initially
