    Hi Blondie, @blondiewales

    in this one you can hear my problems with the EE vowel very clearly. I had to go directly spot on to EE without the Aye-EE ("eight") before. It was very tough. I think that it will take long and hard journey to find this pocket by second nature. :neutral:

    Excellent work both of you very good, had to sing along such a catchy song :D. These collabs are great fun and I reckon we can learn a lot from them.

    @doc_ramadani wow sorry, I was directly tagged in this thread twice and I didn't even get notified!

    I think your EE vowel is getting better! One age-old trick is to find a vowel you're confident in and try to morph that into EE while keeping the same resonance (it shifts a little bit because different vowels make different overtones). Do it on different notes and see the result.

    Good job to you both on this fun song! I like the "oo oo oos." Good work on exploring a variety of tones, Doc! I think you're getting better with placing the sound forward, but not so forward that it's in the nose!

    Good work to Lana too. Here's a fun exercise for you to play with. A lot of your notes that have natural vibrato are in a good place. Try to find that place where it can naturally go into vibrato on every note, especially the sustained ones. Obviously you don't have to sing like that, but it's a fun thing to play with to find the spots in your voice that are naturally relaxed

    Good job you guys!

    @doc_ramadani good job man! I feel some of the high notes have a little too much air pressure going in. Sound a little high larynx, so watch out for that a little. You had some good moments! Keep it up.

    @coffeecrank Great! You have a naturally pleasant and musical tone. I would've preferred the oohs not to be glottal stops, just adding a little silent H to the beginnin of those can make it easier AND make it sound smoother. I think you have a better placement. Notice how you sounded consistent throughout the song? That means you used the same placement for what you did. For example, another thing with placement is: If you sing a high note in a certain way that sounds really good and easy, keep using that placement because that'll make everything sound consistent, otherwise it may not sound the same or you might even have unnecessary tension to try and get the same sound as before. As it has been said before, everyone has a different space and nasal cavities that give us the resonance we need, you have to sound that sweet spot where your voice really pops!

    Anyways, good job you two. Solid performance, and pretty enjoyable!

    @Diego I think I saw a dream about placement the other night lol, was thinking so much about it. I think I'm getting somewhere with it too, will keep practicing. Thanks a lot for helping out!

    Glad you enjoyed it, it's such a catchy tune I can't help dancing to it. :D

    Hi @blondiewales,

    thanks for your feedback. I will try this technique to morph to the EE from different vowels.

    Hi @Diego,

    thanks for your feedback, too. You are right. I still have a lot weight on these high notes. This is something I am working on right at the moment. The highest note in this song was a C5 in full voice. I think that my laryngeal position is okay. I check it constantly. It might be that some of that nasal / froggy portion of my tone comes from my constantly clogged nose. I certainly have to quit smoking now to stop that from hindering my vocal development. I am planning to have my first cigarette-free day on Saturday.

    Thanks for your nice comments,
