Tiny "Cut" sensation in throat
I've been having some erratic sleep patterns due to work the past couple weeks, and my voice was not cooperating too well. I found that it sounded very "worn and groggy" in certain areas, where I almost felt like I lost it in certain spots.
At the last gig I played this weekend my voice was very weak and I ended up having the stress mount up back into the neck and throat (reverting to old habits). That in combination with a few beers after led to my throat feeling very dry. The next day I did the KTVA workout and my voice sounded better than before. I sang for a few hours after, but I guess I didn't drink enough water because my throat was still super dry... then I felt the sensation of a "tiny cut" in the left side of my throat.
I was wondering a couple things:
1. Has anyone experienced a sensation of having a "tiny cut" in their throat, and whether they continued doing the KTVA exercises or took some vocal rest afterwards?
2. If this may have been caused by
a) dry dehydrated throat OR
b) incorrect glottal compression
I had another post about correct and incorrect glottal compression, and that the sensation has a very light, easy squeeze on the throat while holding your breath and cutting back the air. I wonder if I am doing this correctly.
Thanks for your time,
