My post got deleted for some reasonHow does one develop their own singing voice?
I know that there are some differences. While of course maintaining the originality of your own voice.
Whether its minor or major does your singing voice develop naturally?
For example: His speaking voice during the intro and while singing is similar but not the same
When he sings in this video. It's actually quite different from how he speaks.
Chester has an interesting voice. Light and thin, but adducted cords. Placement is very important to this sound, with ample support to protect the thinned voice.
I can see why you're a big fan of his.
He has an amazing voice!
What do you mean by placement ? Sorry for the beginner intellect.
I will post a video of myself singing a part of "say something". It will be awesome if you guys can help me where I can learn where my voice should be when singing it. I feel as if my tone is too "light and high" instead of more darker and powerful.
Is it mostly through developing the voice through the exercises ?
I noticed that even with what was said. That all the singers I listen to that cover "say something" can keep their tone consistent. Whether it's a naturally higher tone or a lower tone. They keep it high or they keep it low.
Example: his tonal quality is the same from the soft lower pitch parts to the higher notes. Is that just placement? And what exactly is placement?
Thanks for posting the videos. They contain a lot of information, both sound and sight.
Going back to your beginning post here, it's interesting to hear your voice after listening to Chester See and watching him. Knowing that he is someone whose talent you admire helps to interpret where you would like to go with your own voice.
I like the overall sound and tone of your voice. On Say Something, you do a pretty good job on the verses. It's easy to see that you're singing from your heart, and that goes a long way in my book.
On the choruses, you're having trouble with the F#4, the high note. The chorus depends on that note, but you aren't yet able to support that note. You go on into head voice for the G4, A4 part.
You are drifting on your pitch at times. I've already said you have a good-sounding voice. You do, however need to improve the accuracy of your pitch. That's absolutely imperative if you are serious about making this happen for you.
I think you need to be doing workouts so that the F#, G, A all fall more into your comfort zone. Work on those specific notes. Do them easy, don't strain. Work on being comfortable with them, so you can sing them lightly or more strongly, depending on the song.
Ken Tamplin has a program called Basic Pitch that is a tutorial for students who are having problems with pitch accuracy. It is provided to students who have purchased as little as only Volume One.
You have vocal abilities and a good tone. You need to get a handle on your support and your pitch. They go hand-in-hand.
Good Singing To You, dk_ !
Which part exactly is f#4 and G4,A4?
You can find virtual pianos on the internet or download a piano app on a smartphone.
With that you could identify the notes in a song or easily hear what notes are in a scale.
On the chorus of Say Something the part that goes
Say Something I'm Giving up on you
F# E E E E F# E D D
You're not making it up to a solid F#. Once you're off track, the tendency is to remain off track.
It would be a good idea to just work on that chorus, and get comfortable nailing that F# in a relaxed, solid way.
Keep working Ken's workouts. They will get easier for you with time.
You should go through Ken's Basic Pitch program. It will teach you some things you need to know about hearing and matching pitches. It will be helpful to you.
He has good cord closure. He uses a little fry on some of his onsets for a stylistic effect.
Conversely, he sometimes uses an airy approach for the softer passages.
When he goes high and loud he compresses. He uses mask here and there.
His style employs a lot of dynamics from soft to loud, and intimate to blasting.
