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
How To Improve Your Singing Voice How To Sing Better Tips Revealed
How to Improve Your Singing Voice Hi. Aaron here from HowtoSing and we'regoing to be talking about how to improve your singing voice. Now, I know that's kind ofa broad topic. So I just want to narrow it down for this particular tutorial to eliminatingnasality, that really kind of annoying sound that is often in the voice and just talk aboutkind of how to get rid of that and a little bit about that process and even give you anexercise at the end as well. So let's get right to it. That nasal kindof ahh, that tone, what it does is it squashes the resonance, that kind of full, big, resonanttone that you want. It kind of squashes that
down. It has an annoying quality that youdon't really like in the first place and don't really want but it also kills the resonanceso you don't have that full kind of powerful sound as well. So how do we get rid of ité Where does itcome from, all thaté The nasal tone primarily comes from the soft palate. Now the soft palate,if you take your tongue and you're feeling the roof of your mouth, that's the hard paletteright there. If you follow it back, back to there where it gets kind of like softer there,that's your soft palate. So the soft palate is the ngaaa the nasal tone. What happensis that that soft palate is lowering. It's
lowering excessively and so actually try thiswith me. See if you can find it first of all and I want you to find it. Give it like alittle yell, like a haww. Notice what the soft palette does when you do a yawn. It raisesway up and actually your throat kind of opens up too and your larynx lowers. The yawn is a great way to kind of see whereyou need to be and what it needs to feel like kind of when you're singing. Now, it's anexaggerated form. You don't want to sing like vocalizes. I mean some opera singers dobut you don't want to necessarily sing like that but you want that kind of motion withthe soft palate that's up a little. You want
your throat nice and wide and then your larynxshould be pretty steady. Your larynx tends to raise up for the higher notes but you wantto keep that relatively steady. So during that motion, you kind of feel the soft palateand what it does, how it raises up. So let me talk a little more about now whenit's down, what it does is like the NG sound, that consonant when you do a song if you'resinging the word song or any NG sound. What it does is it cuts off go ahead and do anNG and then try to blow it out of your mouth. You can't because it blocks the air from comingout your mouth. So all the air comes out of your nose and so you're getting this kindof nasal tone.
So when you're doing NG or even like a Tsound, that's different than the soft palate but anytime your tongue, the back of yourtongue or the front of your tongue raises up to do a consonant sound, you want to getright back down where it's supposed to be behind the teeth right there. That's whereyou're seeing that. So anyway, I'm kind of going all over theplace but this is mainly talking about the nasality. So the NG consonant is somethingthat you need to do and the nose has that nasal sound. It has a function. I mean youdo want air coming out of your nose when you're singing but primarily you want it coming outof your mouth.
Your sinus cavity, your nasal cavity, it isa resonator but it's more of a kind of a secondary resonator and it's a resonator when you'rein your head voice. I won't get into head voice and chest voice but primarily you wantthe air coming out of your mouth and so when it's mostly coming out of your nose, that'swhen the nasal sound comes. Try this with me. This is an exercise to kindof get you to feel what it feels like to raise and lower your soft palate. Plug your noseand you're going to get that kind of a nasal sound, righté Now see what you have to do.Just say like an E or something. So you're going, Eeehhh. Try to get the nasal out ofyour voice. Watch what you have to do, Eeehhh.

Check thisout. â€¦ Invest some time to put in some sweatequity and energy into this. You want to check out my tutorial on diaphragmatic support. It'sthe engine that drives your car. That tutorial will help you to understand how to strengthenthe abdomen. Now, I cover all of this in my singing course called How To Sing Better ThanAnyone Else. It has over 50 hours of incredible tutorials of myself and my students singingthis stuff. And by the way I have over 300
tutorials on YouTube. Check them out. You'llsee that I'm not just telling you how to do something, I'm demonstrating it withmy own voice, and my students are demonstrating it with their voices.So I want to take a quick quot;Aquot; vowel, and by the way, I'm going to give you a quick tutorialon diaphragmatic support, and you can watch the tutorial that I showed you before. We wantto breathe from our abdomen. Our whole, underneath our solar plexus and our chest cavity here,where you want to take your breath inâ€¦ Like thisâ€¦ When I want to breathe outâ€¦ Haaaâ€¦Like thatâ€¦ So we take in a breathâ€¦ In like this, and we sing a phrase: Lay, AA, AA,AAAAA, AA, AA, AAAAâ€¦ And our stomach pulls
in, as we sing the phrase.Now, this is the engine that drives our car, and without it, we're like Fred Flintstone,in the Flintstone mobile, going â€œWoob, woob, woob, woob, woob!â€� With our feet, just tryingto figure out how we're going to be able to make it up that hillâ€¦ Okayé So, withthat said, we're going to start on the A vowel. Now, the quot;Aquot; vowel, it's an easy vowelto sing. Ah is the biggest vowel, and EE and ooh are the smallest vowels. They're thehardest. All is the hardest from being big, and EE is hard because it strains in the throat.quot;Aquot; is a median vowel, it's really easy to sing an quot;AAquot; vowel.Now, we're just going to do something really
simple: Lay, AA, AA, AAAAA, AA, AA, AAAAAAâ€¦And I want you to feel the jaw completely relaxed, in a relaxed state. Lay, AA, AA,AAAA, AA, AA, AAAAâ€¦ The tongue should be dropped to the base of thejawâ€¦ I cover this on several tutorials on YouTube on my channelâ€¦ Lay, AA, AA, AAA, AA, AA,AAAAâ€¦ Now feel like your throat is floating on a cushion of airâ€¦ Lay, AA, AA, AAA, AA,AA, AAAâ€¦ Not LAYAAAAAAA(distorted and strained) we're not straining in the throat.Now, I have a whole section on what I call â€œOpen Throat Techniqueâ€�on how to keepthe back of that throat open, so that you don't pinch and squeeze and choke off thosevowels as we ascend the scale. Lay, AA, AA,
AAA, AA, AA, AAAâ€¦ Lay, AA, AA, AAA, AA,AA, AAAâ€¦ Do it with easeâ€¦ Use your abdomen, use your stomach, the engine that drives yourcarâ€¦ Lay, AA, AA, AAA, AA, AA, AAAâ€¦ Ladies, you'll be doing this up the octaveâ€¦ Lay,AA, AA, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, AA, AA, AAAâ€¦ You feel the ease of the vowelé Now.We practice this, so that we can strength train, and build strength into the sound. If wedon't build strength in the sound, then expect to crack. And you know whaté Even ifyou crack, it's not the end of the world. You go back, you regroup, you do it again,until you're able to get through this with the correct strong support, and building themuscle memory, and the strength in that muscle
