  • See is mixed voice the same as covering?

    Here's what's goin' on: a lot of **************** I do has high f#4 to g4 and maybe even a4. What I do most of the time is sort of belt, but it sounds like ****************, and I have no control over it. By control, I mean I can hit a note, say G4, but can't do a fluid line where it goes g4-g4-g4-f4

    So, I need to develop control and actual non-belt ability in that range. I have this tone where it is sort of placed right on top of the upper-back part of the roof-of-my-mouth, and I think this is mixed/cover/whatever b/c I can somewhat control it, and it's not as loud as a belt. It also sounds much smoother, but it's not falsetto-y.

    What is this? Is this mixed or cover? is mixed the same as cover? what the hell.

      So what are some good exercises to bridge my chest voice to my covered voice seamlessly?

        Try singing a high falsetto "u" vowel and then on a descending octave carry that down to your chest voice.

                  You also want to think about shifting your vowel sounds a little when heading up to that high belt. Certain vowels can't live in that space and need to be modified. Brett Manning's example: Rockets red glare can become Rockets rid glire

                  I'm not sure that a mixed or head voice would work well with the kind of aggressive punk that you do, Duke. Michael Jackson is all head voice, Joe Strummer not so much....

                    Joe Strummer maybe not, but Glenn Danzig used a a lot of mixed and head voice from what I can tell. Two different styles of punk singing, but I never found the Misfits to not sound aggressive and just plain "punk".

                      According to Jaime Vendera, Glenn Danzig sings with a raised Larynx and somewhat of a "Belt".

                      Actually, Glenn Danzig is one of my favorite singers.

                        Glenn does use a little covered/mix on his "howls" and when he's screaming "ooohhhh" but when he's doing lyrical ****************, he's belting. This is old-misfits era. Great voice.

                        "New" Danzig, he never sings above standard baritone. His voice is usually lost in the mix in this range, and I can never make out any of the lyrics. Don't like it so much.

                        As for raised/lowered larynx, beats the hell outta me.

                          It's called Vocal Lab. $15.00. Worth it.

                            Same. I had a thread about this a little while back. It's hard for me to just hit straight on G4. I've been doing a lot of experiment with tonal placement and I believe this may have a lot to do with it until I can work on maybe this not stronger in my mix.
