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 mean it's been a very.what seems likea long transition but in reality it's been really really fast. I think I startedout very intimidated just by the crowd and the noise itselfbut I don't know, I feel really comfortable, I feel really good about the performances I've been putting out there and I'm really happy. Ithink that my performance tonight will only be astepping stone to further performances if I stay and that excites me more than anything. My friends all
say that it's funny that, you know, they.they call me shy because I'm the most.I don't know, outgoingperson, not the most outgoing person but I definitely love people and I love talking but musically that has always been asideshow in my life, a personal thing and not in a badway, just in a quot;Oh, I wrote music.I'll do.I'll handle it later,quot;and now it's just, I mean I'm merging my two favoritethings, you know, people and singing and that's really cool, I'm so glad to be doing that here and now.Yeah, I think that's an aspect
of singing that's kinda ignored sometimes in shows like thisbecause a lot of time it's about oh, your performance, your body language, the. the show going on behind you but in theend it really is about your voice and that is definitelyan aspect of coaching that I admire and respect and definitelyappreciate because little things like that help make a performance go from goodto great and I think that that's what singing is, youknow we want to improve our vocal
techniques not only our, you know, stardom quality if you may call it but. yeah. I don't know, I don't think I've discovered it yet,you know, it's kinda hard, It's always so hard to. to compliment yourself in that way, to say quot;Oh, I'm so unique,quot; because, I mean, I'm. you know I hear myself talk all the timeI could go without it, believe me! And I know my parents could too,
but to hear that, you know, reassuring, you know, quot;Oh, you are so unique, you're sodifferent,quot; I mean there's no better way to convince yourself ofsomething like that than the support of people you don't even know.Oh, I would love to sing Adele's quot;Rumor Has Itquot; I think that, you know, like I said, you know,steppingstone. I said before I want to bring out some of that Jackieand Tessanne in me, if they don't mind but, you know, I wannado that, I wanna.I wanna be a little. a little bit more soulful. I wanna conveythat emotion a little bit more.
Thank you so much! Thank you for even being my fans,whatever that means, I can't believe I have fans and for those of you who consider yourselfa fan of my music, thank you so much because you make me wanna make it and that's something that Inever thought I'd say and I'm so happy that I'm saying so thank you.
