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 Do An Irish Accent
Hello, I am Gareth Jameson. I am an actorand a voice coach from londonvoicelessons. com. Here are some tips for working on yourvoice. The key to any accent is to isolate sound that is specific to that accent. Now for me the most important one in an Irishaccent is the quot;iquot; sound. The quot;iquot; that we get in quot;likequot; or quot;heightquot;, or even at the beginningof the word Irish. It becomes like an quot;oiquot;, almost like the quot;oiquot; in oil. So that is why you sometimes hear people sayquot;oirishquot; and quot;oirelandquot;. It is not quite quot;oiquot; really, it is slightly less than that, itis quot;oiiquot;. So that we have quot;I will be fine
with all this oilquot;, there is a differencequot;I will be fine with all this oil, I will be finequot;. That introduces another feature as well, thequot;thquot;, quot;I will be fine with all this oilquot;. The quot;thquot; is usually removed from Irish speakers,especially with more casual speakers so that you get more d's and t's instead. So havea listen to this. quot;What do you think of this, what do you thinkof thiséquot; That is quot;thinkquot; and quot;thisquot;. Our next feature is the letter quot;rquot;. Now for mostIrish speakers the quot;rquot; is always pronounced. So, instead of saying words like quot;parkquot;, wewill have quot;paarkquot;, with a quot;errquot;. It is right
at the front of the mouth, unless you arefrom Dublin where your right at the back of your mouth. You are right at the front, quot;parkquot;and quot;gardenquot;. Right at the front like that. Now we moveonto a quot;lquot; sound. Now, for British English speakers we have two versions for the quot;lquot;sound. We have one at the back of the mouth, likein quot;kettlequot;, quot;bottlequot; and quot;pullquot;, and one at the front in quot;lovelyquot;, quot;lemonquot; and quot;limnedquot;.For an Irish speaker, they are all at the front. In fact, it is quite helpful I liketo think of the whole accent coming from the front of the mouth.
This phrase might help, quot;a little bubble atthe front of your mouth, a little bubble at the front of your mouthquot;. Finally, that introducesthe quot;ouquot; sound in mouth. It becomes quot;ouwquot;, like if starting on a quot;ouquot;, if you start onquot;ouquot;, quot;ouwquot;, quot;mouthquot;. So try quot;how now brown cow, brown cowquot; withan quot;ourquot; in it. quot;How now brown cow, a little bubble at the front of your mouthquot;. Now wehave not got time for more features today. I am Gareth Jameson, thanks very much.
