Cher - Believe

Post  bradphone on Wed Jan 15, 2014 12:27 pm

I still have the flu unfortunatly, so my voice isnt back yet, my tessitura/comfortzone (or whatever its called) is now around E4 and whenever i go higher i have the feeling that i should sing with extra care because i could crack on a note any minute.

The falsetto parts are a little bit odd and i dont have the best pitch in the world on the chorus, but i thought it was a decent effort with the piano and the vocals.

Dude you have fantastic vocal stamina, but I honestly think you should get singing lessons. Something about the way you sing makes me think you're using bad technique/not breathing properly.

I don't really know how I can explain it anymore tbh. You just sound sort of strained and throaty in areas.
As in you seem to have no problem singing passages with quick phrasing. I wish I could do that. Very RnB, very nice.

Ahh, like that.
It all depends, if my voice is kinda shot (Not drinking enough water, and talking all day long) i cant do those melisma`s and quick phrasings with multiple notes.
And the straining... well, thats kinda just because off my voice being "Shot" cuz of the flu.

Normally my Tessitura lies around G4/G#4 but because of the flu i think its around D4/E4, and it also makes it more difficult to sing a high note without rasp (I try to sing as clean as possible... as you can hear, i start the D5 at the end pretty clean, but it becomes more raspy at the end)

I dont have the money for vocal lessons unfortunatly, and i dont know any YouTube teachers unfortunatly..

You could potentially seriously damage your voice though. Also 2 things....
-Why are you singing through a flu, I don't understand how you can think that's a good idea?
-Have you ever stopped to think that maybe this constant shift in your vocal health has anything to do with the way you are singing?

I`m singing through my flu because i felt my voice was in allright shape, so i started to rehearse a way of singing the song for about 5 minutes, and then i did a recording of it.
Its not like i`m singing every day for 1-2 hours, i record one song every 2-3 days orso.. Now with the flu i try to sing less and drink a lot of water..

hmm... Its not a constant shift, its only because of the flu now that my voice is a bit sucky, i`m going to stop singing for a while and try to keep the talking to a minimum, i dont want to lose my voice as i really like singing and recording my singing (sometimes)

Lets hope its not too late..

I read something about building up vocal muscles and thereby stamina by singing and walking/jogging at the same time... Maybe i could try that ? Whenever my voice is better/flu is gone? (And i dont mean singing a whole one hour set offcourse at full volume, but singing 2-3 songs in a normal talking volume..
