There you go.

Some tips:
- Use these:♭ and ♯ (not b and #)
-It's not necessary, but I find a nice pic of the singer brightens up the OP Smile
That's about it really, good job considering it's your first thread. (You might consider starting his SHN at D4/E♭4? even for Jack it doesn't seem necessary to start them that low.

Thanks for the help ICUP :-P that looks a lot better. I did try uploading a picture but it wasn't letting me, maybe because I'm on a mobile and not a computer? But thank you for the tips :-) much appreciated.

On a side note: if anyone wants to help contribute to this page you're welcome to do so. :-)

What type of Baritone?

Post  RoryRoarington on Fri Feb 28, 2014 11:41 pm

Would anyone consider Jack a high baritone or would you say he is a more basic baritone? I know his range 'from what I've heard so far' is a more prime example of a baritone but then his voice sounds quite fruity at times too?

without getting into a voice type debate, he does sound like more of a High Baritone to me (he gets a sort of tenor brightness to his voice at times too)
Range doesn't indicate much in the way of VT.
Keep his voice type as Baritone though, we don't use subcategories on the forum.

I'd say he's a standard baritone, to my ear at least, and I suppose he has a light timbre but yeah not a tenor IMO

I mean to, at times his voice can have a tenorish twang to it (like most baritones)

I agree his voice can sound fairly light and twangy sometimes, personally I've never heard him sing beyond D4 but I'm not too familiar with his work ahaha nice thread!

Thanks Starman, it's just I've seen many other threads where people have used terms like: baritenor, bass-baritone, high tenor etc. so I thought I would need to be really specific on voice type. By the way would you count sung notes that would, for example, I sing a c4 but I hit a really brief c2 before that note, would that still count as a note, or does it have to be noticeable and audible?

Oh thanks Gabriel :-)

No problem mate Smile I think people call him a "bass baritone" or whatever simply because his range is somewhat limited, light baritone who sings within the A2 - C4 area often , I've never heard him sing particularly high

I personally think Jack has a lot of potential, his highest chest note I've heard so far is an A♭4 (not a long note and sounds fairly controlled) but it's only a semitone away from an A4. I'm unsure with his lows, but I've heard very brief C2s from Jack in 'Better Together', so that is pretty impressive, but it's hard to tell with some of the notes sung as they are so brief and I can't work out the register used: vocal fry, chest etc.

But I do agree with you about Jack being categorised as a light baritone.

Semi-tones are a huge step at the highest region of you range. Especially like a B4 compared to a C5.

Oh I agree he's got potential, he just reminds me of one of those guys who don't really "show off" their voices, in other words its more about his guitar playing, and semitones are pretty huge like ryugen said ^
