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
I Hate My Singing Voice Help Felicia Ricci
Today's tutorial answers the question, â€œWhat do I do if I hate my voiceéâ€� And I know a lot of you have been there because I've read your comments, because I've read your emails, your tweets, where you say, quot;Fel, I listen to myself sing, either as I'm singing or on a recording, and I just hate it. I love to sing but I feel like I suck, what do I doé How do I get over thatéâ€�
Really quick intro: Nice to meet you, my name is Felicia. You can call me Fel I'm a professional quot;Voice Finderquot; I make singing tips tutorials, I make online courses, and it's my job to help you find your voice. Uhm, so many singers really get in their own way.
Through mental blocks, through not knowing how to focus their practice. And it's just my job to show you that singing is really, really simple. The first bit of advice I have for you if you absolutely hate the sound of your voice is for you to realize that you absolutely have the power to shape your tone.
Singing tone a lot of it is inherited, righté We all have vocal folds that are of a certain thickness we all have the most natural way of creating sound or of speaking so there is so much this genetic that we inherit. But in terms of vocal technique, there is so much that you can do, to shape the way you sound. I like to describe all of this as sort of vocal chameleons or that we have so many different colors in our color palette
and you can really determine whether or not you know you wanna mix white (sound) with red (sound), to create pink (sound). You have different, basically, your voice is so much more versatile than I think a lot of singers realize. So the first step is to feel empowered to know that, â€œOkay, my voice might sound this way today but that doesn't mean it's gonna sound that way tomorrow. Or, several weeks down the line if I know how to direct my practice.â€�
The second bit of advice I have for you has to do a little bit with the emotion and the heart behind singing and the selflove that singing requires. I like to draw an analogy between working on your singing with working on your body or exercising to achieve health, strength or to lose weight. Now both of them are sort of frost sometimes with some negative emotions or it can be really tricky pursuits
