The psychology of cracking?
I am working on Volume 2. I pay attention to keeping an open throat and good diaphramatic support, but still can't get rid of the crack when coming DOWN a scale. I don't have this problem as the notes ascend, but on the second to the last note on the way down, my voice always cracks, no matter what the actual note being sung (C,D,E, etc) is. What is going on? Is it my fear of cracking? It is like a "stepping" sound, rather than a legato connection of notes at that juncture. I once heard Ken talk about using an "h" to avoid cracking, but what does that exactly mean? Thank you!
