  1. Hi, nice video, thanks a lot. I have a question. Why do I momentarily loose
    my lower range when I sing rock in my upper range? What am I doing wrong?
    Maybe yelling ? :S

  2. I second this question. Why is it when I sing high for a while, lower notes
    I can normally hit are a major struggle? I wouldn’t be too surprised if the
    answer is something obvious.

  3. Brett talked about using vocal fry for that. Try searching (in YouTube),
    “singing success head chest voice” or something like that. You should find
    a few videos covering the topic you’re looking for.

  4. Do you mean head voice and falsetto? Mixed voice is more or less a
    combination of chest voice and head voice. A distinctive quality of
    falsetto is that it’s high (obviously) and airy. Head voice and mix voice
    have more support and vocal chord connection.

  5. i haven’t had any formal training except for these free tips and lessons
    from this channel and from rocthestagenyc and I have gotten amazingly
    better in just one month. this is awesome how you guys give these little
    lessons for free, because there are great singers with a lot of potential
    out there who don’t have the money for lessons. everyone should warm up
    before singing with some of these videos, it makes a huge difference when
    recording your voice. I’m going to do a before and after soon.

  6. If you are in mix… you should be able to attain vocal fry, even on the
    higher notes… Falsetto is the more airy mode that doesn’t involve vocal
    chord closure… as far as I understand… but I’m no Brett Manning 😛

  7. Hey Bret, My voice sounds more breathy when i sing notes after high C..I
    practice cord closure exercises too..though its giving a great change in my
    voice..the problem of sounding breathy on high notes is still a
    problem..hope to hear from you.

  8. Hey Bret. I’ve been noticing that I may be losing my falsetto. Before, I
    used falsetto effortless to hit really high notes. Now, when I try to sing
    those notes in falsetto I can’t hit them and it goes right to my head
    voice. And sometimes my falsetto its not even there! And when it is, it
    sounds airy and weak. I drink lots of water, I don’t smoke or drink
    alcohol. My head voice is developing more and more, but it seems that the
    more I work my headvoice, the more my falsetto weakens. Pls help 😉

  9. This video was very helpful, but are there any videos you can suggest to
    improve support at the top end of your chest voice? I’m capable of hitting
    enough notes in my chest voice but I’m finding it extremely difficult to
    produce a sound up there that doesn’t sound tight/strained, and without
    that range, I am unable to sing above the Bb below middle C. Could you
    suggest a video that could help me there please?

  10. Darnit so I need to change my lifting habits?C’mon how do you do heavy
    squats or deadlifts while maintaining a calm and serene kinda expression??

  11. If you can’t sing above middle C in chest then you really CAN’T sing
    “enough notes” in chest. If you really want to have a good mix you will
    want to learn how to stretch the chest up to at least an A4, then you can
    CHOOSE whether to sing heavy or light. I can pick if I want to mix my voice
    at the F4 or wait until the B4. People who do not strengthen their chest
    will always have wishy washy days where they “can’t find that note”. check
    out my videos.

  12. its’ because you do not strength the chest register. so you will inevitably
    lose your mixed voice then your head voice. training too light is just as
    detrimental as training too heavy.

  13. I have Singing Success, it helps but when I sing with my band my throat
    hurts and I spend the rest of the day with throat pain, and sometimes I get
    sick 🙁
    So… what should I do?

  14. Great video Brett! This is for sure the most common challenge in singing.

  15. Even though I admire you, and you have tought me a lot, until this day I
    see you as a hipocrite. It´s easy to get big on an F4, but I´ve never seen
    you through a bif full G#-A#4, starting from a light tone. and you know
    what, that heady tone is rubish to us rock singers, so will always throw
    that light heady notes away and go for the big full chesty ones, they sound
    and they feel better, your vocal course just frustrates rock singers.

  16. I have a natural instinct to sing in a mixed voice I can sing in just my
    head voice after years of being in choir but I am trying to learn how to
    sing with my chest voice now and it’s so hard! especially when i’m a
    soprano 1 and can only do it in my lowest notes :(

  17. Light and right instead of strong and wrong. Best advice – Like a Preacher
    of Singing, saying things that rhyme so that you remember is Ha!
