You should get over it. There doesn’t seem to be anything to be shy about
Re: Hello, lead singer for No Doubt Tribute band here
Very cool performances!
The approach taken in Ken's course is to first grow and strengthen our chest voice while also training the throat to remain open during transitions between registers. Then, we grow and strengthen head voice. After that, we learn to mix them however we want.
Growing our chest and head voices means stretching our range in both directions. I would suggest that you first try the Dudes exercises, and if your chest voice already spans the entire length of those, then work with the Divas exercises as well.
Remember that we don't grow head voice until Volume 4. What you are looking for is a range of pitches that both stretches your chest voice, and also lets you practice bridging between registers.
It is completely fine to work with both the Divas and Dudes exercises.
Just be sure that you are covering both chest stretching and bridging in equal amounts during your workouts.
Re: Gave rock a go again. Here's my cover of Rx (Medicate) by Theory of a Deadman
I can hear you trying to control yourself on those high notes you mentioned and you are very close to getting there. Try starting the word with a more open vowel and end on the ate instead of holding it like that the whole way through, I cant say in in the public area but review what the mods are for aye and try use the second one
Re: Do I still suck after 5,5 years of singing? ( 3 year on KTVA )
Like to add a little here, one thing did notice dropping support at the very end of phrases repeatedly in both tracks and its definately an area you might want to hold the support right till the end of the phrase rather than a fall off.
There's good points in your voice once you sort out song choices and reckon you'll see a significant improvement.
