additional information to sing the vowel technique:
1. Relax
2. Hum a steady base note and allow the vibration to spread out through your whole body
3. Choose a vowel and sing it loud and strong, but relaxed
4. Practise to change one vowel into another in a gliding manner (try different vowels)
5. Go back and forth between u and e so slow as you can and listen carefully to the stepwise change of the sound
6. Try to reduce the speed more and more to hear the
subtle jumps of the harmonics better and better
7. Stop the flow of time like a film and sing a steady base note AND a steady overtone in the same time
8. Try to reproduce the changing of harmonics in small steps to learn the natural scale of harmonics
9. Start to sing little melodies with the overtones
10. Try to change the base note during singing overtones

PS: There are techniques to amplify the loudness of the overtones. I recommend to learn this vowel based technique at first to get better results.

    I didn’t know that we could do overtone with our voices. Amazing! But I
    don’t understand how to do it =(

  3. Bas Schippers says:

    Oh my god, Ive literally stopped thinking and just focussed on my
    breathing, and the slowly changing of one vowel to another and in a few
    minutes I really started hearing the overtone. This is amazing, this is
    truely amazing. I thank you!

  4. spikeschilde621 says:

    this is awesome!
    it’s great when you’re trying to do this kind of singing, but when you’re
    singing a showtunes medley, not so much lolol
    so I’m pretty sure this is why my old choral conductor used to tell us to
    open our mouths more when we sang, so as not to get that muffled, whistley
    sound. i never knew what he was talking about. but i get it now.

    struggling to figure out how it was possible :D

  15. 寒天chillyheaven says:

    Hi, first off, let me say you are astounding! Your overtones are so clean
    and consistent.
    I wanted to ask, how did you practice your overtones? I saw this video some
    years ago, started practicing about a year ago and now I think I can nail
    the octave and fifth pretty consistently. However, I have a hard time
    controlling the overtone as I change the bass note, and I also can’t change
    the overtone without noticeably changing the vowel. Did you sing the bass
    and melody of a few songs over and over until you got it?
    Thanks in advance!

  18. Ary Sauda says:

    My god! This is incredible Miroslav. I have time seeing this and trying to

    going. :-)

  29. Võ Phúc Khang says:

    Does overtone singing require real whistle register?

  30. so If I have 2 personalities or more can I assign a voice to each one and
    have a normal conversation with myself ?

  31. Your clear videos and the extraordinarily helpful advice your give in the
    comments shows that you are not only a skilled, talented singer, but also a
    quality human being. Thank you for your great positive impact on the world.

  32. Thomas Rönnberg says:

    Wow, you have excellent control of the overtones. I’m glad that I learned
    the basics, so now I can at least produce them.

    I sing lyric and this is so helpful! Absolutely amazing, thank you!

  36. Charlotte Bonilla says:

    Singing well requires the power to not solely land a be aware but to construct into it, but back off with out the notice disappearing, and add the styling and phrasing that makes the word spring to life.

    After you have gotten that familiar song down, branch out.
