Losing voice or connecting properly
i'm on volume two and have been on the program for almost 4 months...so some strange stuff has been going on with my voice since the beginning of the week...i've noticed a higher tendency for my voice to flip into head although i sound more connected, i'm not sure if its coz before i've been pushing my voice unhealthily to get there before...
also now when i do my LAH's, LA (as in flat) and EEs i don't get that airy sensation that comes from falsetto, but it just sounds smoother overall
here's the part that worries me though, I do the exercises meant for pure chest and now that I think about how I used to do it before last week, i might have realised that I was pushing back then (again maybe unhealthily) and now feel like i'm connecting which feels kinda strange although I sound a little more like I'm breaking and some of the notes today were a little harder to get to probably because I might be pushing too much air since I'm not used to this new sensation. So when my voice breaks it kinda sounds like when I don't connect properly on the lighter exercises and just lose the whole note. moreover it feels like I'm dropping weight when I go up towards the passagio too...
after the workout I took a half an hour break and started singing some of my usual clean songs and decided to try a few pantera songs like cowboys from hell, i'm broken and the art of shredding, and today i felt a lot less tension when singing up those notes [and new notes too ] compared to before and feel like i might have been shouting those notes in the past, but now most of that tension is gone. And I can definitely feel a connection...its like doing the light exercises but a much stronger feeling although I still sound chesty (is this the mix?)
So i'm jus worried and want to make sure if you guys have experienced something like this...does this sound like i'm losing my voice or am I realising how to drop the weight at the passagio? and is the breaking a result of a not strong enough headvoice to support the chest in there?
I got a battle of the bands at college tomorrow, so this has been really on my mind haha thanks
