I have been working on Volume 1
for a couple of weeks and I end up with the question. Which way of singing should I use\develop? Or combine them somehow? I don't know what to do with these two different approaches of singing these notes and need a piece of advice!
This time when I sing I feel like sound just floating by itself. It does not take any effort (except I need to pull the tongue out of the back of the throat the higher up I go, but it is very easy and feels natural).
Unfortunately, as you can hear, the sound (when I reach the highest note) got lighter and there was no UH modification (or I just can't hear it) as Ken said in the videos.
This time I can hear all modification and throat does not close when I go really high (for me as a high-baritone
BUT it does not sound bright and it sounds quieter and moreover - afterwards I feel like my vocal cords are tired and I can't even speak normally.
And singing in the second way takes a lot of support of a diaphragm! Although, it does not help for now. To juxtapose - the first way (1) takes a little of support but sounds louder, brighter but lighter.To summarize
- (1) easy to sing, feels natural, very loud and bright, throat closes up top and the higher up I go the more "childish" it sounds.
- (2) hard to sing, quiet and not bright, throat does not closes up top.
What exactly should I try/do next, or what to do with it?
Thank you in advance
