I kind of want to share my progress here and hope that others will too.
At first, I’m just going to describe things I notice. Maybe later, I’ll video it and share a youtube link.
Mainly, I want to know if I’m practicing correctly. I feel like this past year, I have been doing things a little wrong, and with the help of this subscription, I hope to learn how to fix those things.
So, what I have done so far is download all the mp3s and organize them in order of the lessons, then, for my practice, I start at the beginning and go through the exercises. Occasionally I repeat one if I flub it terribly, (which I did quite a bit…I think). Then, I run through them again, followed by the 15 minute warm up. Total time was a little more than an hour.
So, my first day, yesterday, I went through everything, and really struggled from F4 to G#4. Especially on Bratty Neys and Nos. Trouble is, I can do these exercise FINE if I do them loudly. But the minute I lessen the compression, I break and crack. So, yesterday I was a little bummed. But, I had sang in the car the day before and was already tired from it. The Bubbles and Gees feel better though. There’s still a decernible shift in them though as I go through the bridge.
Today, with only yesterday’s practice on my voice, I went through the exercises the same way as yesterday. I honestly felt a slight improvement.
My question is, with the Bubbles, Goos and Gees, I want Hooty, not full voice, right? Because, on the Nos and Neys, I start as light as I can in full voice and keep it as light as possible in full voice on top. Is that correct.
Like I mentioned I can sing quite high with full compression, but it has to be quite loud. Not screaming or yelling, but loud. I’m sure that’s not right, or maybe it is for louder stuff. Maybe it’s my softer, but full, voice I have to fix.
I want to sing Rock, but I agree with Chuck that I should build the foundation first, and worry abut the Genre after.
So, ya, day 2 was GOOD!
