How did it affect your listening experience when you started to know more about singing?
I've been on ktva for close to 4 months, and I just want to share my excitement about this. I hear it everywhere now, to a greater extent than before, the techniques really skilled singers use. I used to not be able to sing the first phrase of Amos Lee's song "Arms of a woman" in the original key without struggling, or at least without making it sound smooth like he does. I listened back the other day and realized "Oh, it's because he is using mixed voice. I can do that easy". I also hear more nasality in male singers as they go up higher. And in this specific example I just realized that she (a really good singer) uses the loft vowel mod in place of ah when she sings "I will go most anywhere to foend where o belong".
Also, I hear her lightly gracing over the vowel sounds during that phrase. The word "to" is actually sung like "do" because she is up high. Seems like a very common thing to me, to sing d instead of t. And the last part of the line is interesting as well. The b in belong is barely there. It's more like "O will o most enewer de foin where o elon". No hard g at the end either.
