Hello, everyone! Belting. I read a lot about this subject, about how you can lose your voice if you don't learn how to belt safely. That's put a little bit of pressure, you know? I don't want to harm my voice. More to say, that I already screamed like a mad man before I found KTVA. I try to stretch my chest voice pretty much everyday. And it's true that my chest voice already expanded to F#4, even tho I do this for about a half a month. And before that I had hard times hitting E4 or even D#4. Not that I can use F#4 in songs, but I can hit it in the exercise practice on AH vowel. Anyway, to the point.
How can I be sure that I don't do this unsafely? When I do it I try to keep my throat relax and open as much as I can. But on my higher notes (like F#4) it's nearly impossible to be relaxed. And I found that Ken said, that when you belting, you ARE actually stressing yourself. So as far as I can understand it, you NEED to stress yourself while belting, but OVERstress yourself, right? Well...how can I say that I not overstressing it without waiting a year or more and have nodules or any sort of suffering?
P.S: I wanted to stretch my chest at least to a G4, but now I'm not sure should I do it right now or not.
