My First of so Many things!!!!

Hi All! Since Doing the KTVA program, I have done so many songs for the first time because I can sing higher with much less strain, My tone has improved for the first time in my life, I am reaching certain high notes for the first time. My wife attests to these, so I know the course is serving me well. Speaking of "First time", I did something crazy for the First Time (again) a few hours ago. I videoed it and audio recorded it, all into an iPhone 7, and then did a quick post production with my digital studio at home.

It was an experiment to see how well I can control myself under heavy breathing demands. And I do mean heavy. I even picked a song that had previously made me feel out of breath, even under normal circumstances.

In this video, you will see that I was trying to sound as normal as I could. I was forcing myself to appear normal (in my face) too. But inside, I was dying from exhaustion in more ways than one.... Let me assure you, it was difficult. But it was really fun!!! Why I do things like this to myself (frequently) I will never know. :smiley:

I Hope this brings you some entertainment:

    that is a pretty interesting experiment, should do it with out the music over lay.

    Like if you just had 1 head phone in and then sung it so we can hear the voice isolated. I feel you would get a lot more out of it this way.

    @DevonMoore Hi!

    I see what you are saying. Agree. I have now posted a "raw" footage. Music was played through a small 3 inch speaker near the camera and facing me. No editing no overlay, no reverb, no eq. No post production whatsoever. Very raw indeed.

    The backing music and my voice were both recorded straight into an iPhone 7. Lots of mispronunciations and missed words due to lack of breath but i worked hard to "cover up"... :blush:

    I actually thought of that initually. But my headphone cable is way too short. This was done at the spur of the moment....

    I think I will try it when I get some blue tooth earphones.!

    Hi @victortang,

    OMG, you crazy guy. As soon as you manage to sing "High hopes" by Panic at the Disco while lifting the Statue of Liberty with your left arm, scramble my eggs with the right and prepare my "Espresso doppio" with your left leg, I will a sign a lifetime membership in your gym. :smiley:

    I have questions: (1) Can I use Autotune in High Hopes? (2) Am I allowed to wear a lifting belt since the Statue of Liberty is quite heavy? (3) How many eggs?? ($) Any sugar in your Espresso Doppio? :blush:

    Hi @victortang,

    (1) Nope. Hey man, we are at KTVA. :)
    (2) That is okay.
    (3) 2 will be okay. I have to watch my cholesterol.
    (4) No, sugar in coffee is a sin.
