You're welcome (I really like that song!!)
The sun is shining and I'm heading for town to do some shopping - things are great!
How are you, any news?
Hey, Lilly! Thanks for the post in my AotM thread. It was funny. How are you?
Yeeeeah! Hehe, I think that's the first time I've ever been told that. I've had songs I like in my head when I first wake up. I like it. Thanks.
Yeah, it must have been for you since it was the first clip I opened and there it was
Just wanted to tell you that I woke up with O.L.E. in my head this morning - great song!
It was of great use! Thanks again And was the exact r sound I was thinking about! lol, she seemed to do that just for me. :P Haha, it's the same here...a lot of people can't do that sound because it isn't in our repertoire, but I can! I just can't do that damned French r. :\
I hope it will be of use I'm not too familiar with Spanish but I think that's the r-sound I mean. I found this vid on YT and on 0:06 she's using a very distinct r-sound: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1WL73vMTX0
If it's difficult to use that sound (where I live they don't use it so many of my students have problems with it) you could go Zzzz like a bee instead (r and z are good sounds to get rid of that mucus).
I also noticed that I was using the "å". It's pronunced like the first sound in all.
Good luck and let me know if you need anything else
Lilly, you are so awesome for this! I really appreciate it, and will take it to heart! And the thing about touching the ceiling had me laughing hysterically. I'm not done reading yet, but the part about brrrrrrrr...I'm not extremely familiar with Scottish or German people, but would that be something like Spanish?
Hi! I'm done with the warm ups now. They're kinda basic, but it's stuff that I do and it works for me. If things are unclear (I've had to google some words, I hope I got most of them right) or if this wasn't what you were looking for, please tell me and I'll try to do better.
Oh, and you'll find the warm ups here:
Hi Randy! First of all, don't be frightened - some researchers say that you don't need to warm up. If it feels OK (i.e. your throat doesn't hurt or feel strange in any way) it probably is. However, I think warming up can be a good thing - especially before a concert. During warm ups you can get rid of excess mucus and sort of get into a "singing-state-of- mind". I use warm ups with my students mainly to practice techniques (even though they probably don't always realize that).
I have to get ready for work now, but I'll get back to you with some warm up's later!
Hiiiii. I finally have a question regarding voice, but of course you don't have to answer right now. I was just wondering what a good vocal warm up would be for me. I've gotten to the point where I don't even warm up at all anymore, which frightens me, to be honest
