Buddy Holly - Girl on my Mind

Post  wyred on Thu Nov 13, 2014 2:26 pm

((Girl on my Mind))
Probably one of the better ones I'll have posted
I'm trying to work on nasality
If you don't like it then don't bother to tell me; I know it's a problem
This was after a long day of singing

Nice dude. You're not that nasal btw, and it doesn't always sound bad even if you are (see Liam Gallagher)

Thank you, really!
For some reason this song was particularly hard to sing today
Thank you again

idk why you would choose buddy holly to help alleviate nasality Confused

btw don't listen to dxfifa he's our new village idiot

you sound good, but like i said last time, you're relying too much on nasal resonance to brighten your voice and hit high notes, and it sounds like it's working in stead of your voice rather than supplementing it. if you want to add buddy holly-esque inflections and nasal hiccups, first work on your voice without relying on it, and then add it to the tonality later on.

not hearing that nasality, or well I mean it's there but it's not too much

the occasional false notes are distracting though, but overall I thought it sounded great, I haven't heard the original song so I'm just going by this cover of yours on its own

edit: okay I listened to the original, and if you're going for that then you're too nasal, but more importantly you wanna work on getting some chest into the deeper sounding parts. That being said I think the way you sing it works, sounds a little bit like a tenor Lennon.

Do you, or anyone else for that matter, have any tips?
Because I feel like I'm singing from my chest.
But I know I'm raising my larynx a bunch.
I don't like how thin my voice is..

well, just because a note is full doesn't mean it's as full as it could be. "chest" as we know it is still a mixture of chest and some head, and the perceived fullness (not modality, but tone) of the character of the sound produced depends on how much of each muscle is engaged. making use of heavier of chest tones, lowering your larynx, and pulling chest will give you a beefier tone kf that's your goal. finding a perfect well supported blend is the ultimate ideal.

Lurex just wants me to be the new "village idiot" because he's sick of having the title. Any thread he sees me in he makes sure to let everyone know he's less idiotic than I am. I honestly don't see what was wrong with my post on this thread... and 35% is probably generous Karl

You have been on this site for five minutes and you think you know who the village idiot is? Here is a hint: it's not Lurex.
