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 SING LIKE JAMES HETFIELD METALLICA ENTER SANDMAN PT 1
if I can't show you how to do it, it can't bedone I guarantee it Hey guys, Ken Tamplin here, and we're back with Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy Here at Costa Mesa studios and we're getting ready tochoose off James Hetfield and Metallica. You knowthe song, it's called Sandman. It goes like this.
okay so, what we have here is, we havesomebody who's a very very throaty singer, and what he does is hethrows the sound to the front the cord; let me show you what I mean bythat. You go: Say your prayers Little One Yeah. yeah. and he,
what he does is he forces the sound,really bright, to the front of the cord. Now, if you're gonna do this sound, makesure that you're compressing your air, and you'renot letting too much care pass across the cord. So I'm actually holding my breath when Ido it. Say your prayers, Little One, don't forget my Son, to include everyonea! Righté So I'm actually compressing theair to keep it from blowing out and giving me freedom to goback up to higher notes and so forth,
so, anyway that's essentially it. Now, one morething I want to add: We did, and I did sing this multiple times, and the lasttrack you heard were my lead vocals on top as the main lead vocal track, but to get this sound, to get the soundof what most modern singers do, modernrock singers do now is they'll sing the track, the lead vocaltrack, like 4, 5, 6, 7, eight times. Now I happen to know Mike Tachie, personally, who actually recorded this album.
FB Reader Tutorial Android Convert Anything to Audiobook
Hey, what's goin' on guys, this is Jason Roe from Teach 2 Teach. People love to read books on and they say that reading books is one of the best things you can possibly do for yourself or intellectual knowledge brainâ€¦ So what you should really do is find a way that you can read books really easily. So they have, Kindles, and they have all sorts of different things that will really help you with getting to read more. But this works even better.
So this turns ebooks into audio books. This is for Android I have not figured out for iPhone or IOS because I don't have an iPhone or IOS. So let me just tell you what I got here and I'm sure you can find a way to make it work on your iOS device. Just leave me a comment, and let me know how if you've figured that out. But let me show you what I do. So, first thing that you can do, since I'm on this page
is get a voice. Get a TTS Voice, Text to Speech voice. I love IVONA. This is my favorite voice and you'll get to hear what it sounds like in a minute. But let's go to the other things that you need. FBReader. FBReader is like Kindle is just an eReader. But what allows for are a lot of really cool plugins. So one of those plugins is this one: FBReader TTS+ Plugin
So let's go to the phone and you can actually see how it all works. One of the coolest things that I found out is, this plugin, this TTS plugin allows for music play in the background, which just makes it so epic. It feels like you're listening to a movie, especially when you play movie scores. So the first thing you want to do is go into your music app. I use Amazon Music, Amazon Cloud Music
You can play a little bit of Hobbit music. Open FBReader. Hit the menu button, and hit speak+. So this is one of the coolest things in the world. It just allows you to listen to your books constantly. There's so much to read and there's not enough time in the day to read it all.
So you've gotta just have it in the background. Just plug in your headphones while you're doing dishes, while you're doing work, driving anything like that. Just listen to these books and it's really, really great. So I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think. Let me know if you're confused. I can try to clarify things in the future. But this should just work great for you. Let me know how it goes, thanks. One more thing I wanted to add. I am a music teacher and we teach music lessons here at Teach 2 Teach.
