Lip Rolls: KTVA vs. Singing Success
As a recent SS convert, I have a question about the way I should be approaching lip rolls... Is SS they emphasize using a low larynx when doing lip rolls. Ken doesn't talk about larynx placement in vol 1 (I currently only have volume 1) and he seems to be keeping his sound very bright throughout the excercise (similar to the Ah excercises). Any insight into how I should approach the excercises? I am currently imitating Ken's tone with success: I am keeping the tone bright and my larynx seems to stay neutral. I am also curious about the KTVA view on larynx placement. I used a low larynx on the SS 'mum' excercises to get into a light mix, though I ended up getting a sound similar to Michael McDonald.
