New singer, NEED HELP!
I've been practicing volume 1 for 3 weeks now, every day! I do see noticeable changes but I still feel lost. My routine starts off with piano workout and then I move on to the audio workout for dudes with the addition of diaphragmatic training afterward (altogether 45m). I don't know if I'm on the right track, is there anything you can suggest? or am I doing just fine? Also, should I neglect high notes until I can actually reach them with my chest voice because I feel like its damaging my vocal cords like I feel a horrible pinch there near the throat area and I also realize that it's sabotaging my technique, right as I thought I have the technique down, going for the high notes then destroys what I had going because I start tensing in the throat area and I again, build muscle memory for that and resets everything I have going. And is it normal for my voice to be raspy after my workout? I need advice, this is very frustrating. Sorry for all the questions, I desperately need help.
