Is this what you’re asking for?
O.k. listen to me man.
I used to have a crappy singing voice and I got a lot better. Years ago I bought the book "Singing For Dummies". The book itself didn't do much for me but it came with a CD of vocal exercises by Pamelia S. Phillips. I did the exercises a few times a week in my car driving to work and it increased my range and control amazingly, I found that my natural range was a lot higher than I thought. I put my favorite exercises on my phone and still do them, especially when I have a gig coming up. I've tried a few singing apps, but I find that the Pamelia S. Phillips ones work the best. You just have to put in a little time and you will be shocked at the improvement. I think you can just download the exercises now, you may not even have to buy the book, look up "Singing For Dummies".
Be warned they sound really corny, it all seems really lame, but if you want a better singing voice it's the way to get it.
I realize that ‘Sing Out’ is a religious/evangelical song, but this thred title put this earmoth in my ear instead, so, i thought I’d share it with the Pub congregation. Enjoy!
Here’s a spiritual for y’all.
Ryland is one of my all-time favourites gospel slide geetar slingers.
You may be right. I usually think of such things this way...
You gotta love the weird hat and glasses...
He has a glass eye, FYI.
So, I heard Ry got pulled over for cutting another driver off.
The cop says, "Didn't you see the other car?"
Ry says, "Well, I have two glass eyes."
Cop says, "WHAT?!?"
Ry says, "Actually, one's a backup."
Guy with a prosthetic eye made of wood goes to a barn dance, and is somewhat nervous that his handicap will put prospective dates off. Finally he works up the courage to ask a young girl with a prosthetic leg to dance.
The guy saunters over to the girl and says, "Care to dance, miss?"
The girl says, "Wouldn' I!"
Guys blurts out in disgust, "Peg-leg!"
(So much for refraining)
I want to say again (because it’s important) that playing and singing stuff like that isn’t something that comes natural to anybody. Those of us who do, do so because we’ve spent countless hours at home working on it. Don’t be disappointed when it doesn’t come easy because it doesn’t for anybody. With that said, wonderwall is a much better place to start than Van Halen. 90s stuff is really easy compared to 80s rock, so start there and cut your teeth on semisonic and matchbox20. Then move on to slightly more difficult stuff. I won’t touch old ozzy stuff yet because I don’t think I can do justice to Randy’s playing while I sing.
I don't get it.
Good advice. Thanks for sharing!
Wooden eye. (Sometimes the resplainin loses a little in the translation.)
