Best way to work on extending range?
I have found that I have quite a low range i can sing certain songs but I find that most male singers I enjoy in the rock genre have a range somewhere in the middle that I struggle to sing without sounding like i'm straining a lot. It seems that they can sing in these ranges comfortably and I find it frustrating that I can't get comfortable within that range. As a guitarist and songwriter I feel that extending my range to the likes of most male rock and pop singers will take my music to the next level. BUT MY VOICE IS JUST TOO LOW AT THE MOMENT!! makes the kind of music that I'm writing sound a bit flat and boring. I know ken touches on stretching chest voice in the KTVA course but I was just wondering if there is anything in particular I can do now to help me increase my range over time to the point where I feel comfortable singing most rock and pop male vocals. Im not too fussed about the really high vocals of artists such as glenn hughes although I love glenn and it would be great to be able to do it. i just want to break into that higher middle range. Hope this all makes sense! haha.
