    Men’s voices DO change every day.

    Why has he gotta sing loud?

  3. ziggydamaestro says:

    I agree with you to an extent; however, there are SO many internet videos out there claiming to teach people to sing when the author hasn’t got a clue what they’re talking about – which can lead to viewers employing bad habits and poor technique. In the same breath, there are also good videos out there too.

  4. all the fucking pros commenting negative can simply fuck off and leave this vids to us, who are learning

  5. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    what is “loud” about this? This is speech level singing technique to get over the passagio and into “the mix”.

  6. Kevin Richards Rock the Stage NYC says:

    This isn’t falsetto, its a very light chest and head resonance to help bridge from the chest to the head registers.

  7. Samuel Karlberg says:

    when your aim is all about volume you much likely get a wobble in your voice because you will probebly unless your extremly gifted push to much air through the vocalcords making them suffer severly. But I admit there are blanks in the SLS teaching and breathing is definitely one of them. I prefer Vendera and arceneaux over Riggs and these SLS guy.

    turn up your volume fool.. stop acting so childish & grow up

    I Wish i sounded like i think i sound ;_;.

  10. well of course breathing matters. BUt if your voice is focussed and open then breathing becomes much less of an issue. And if you concentrate too much on breathing, you can actually restrict or damage your voice.

  11. Samuel Karlberg says:

    for me it feels crucial to keep my diaphraim in a low position when I sing all through my range but aspecially high in full voice. I´m not saing that you should overly concentrate on breathing exercises but to say like riggs that he knows many great singers who are poor breathers and many great breathers that sing like shit is to say that breathing means nothing and for me it does even if poor cordclosure and tension in the jaw or in the swalling muscles are just as or even more important.

  12. i think the best form of breathing is the ‘natural breath’ which is something iv been working on.

    I think a lot of good breathing is keeping the body as relaxed and open as possible.

  13. Samuel Karlberg says:

    I think that the inhalation should feel natural and deep but the exhalation has very little to do with the way we exhail when we speak. For us to be able to hold a consistent airlow that we need when we sing the diaphraim must be kept low and the ribs expanded without collapsing otherwise we run out of breath very early and the tonal quality when we sing long phrases in fullvoice is impossible to maintain.

  14. oh sure. You need to get the sound in the right ‘place’–eg, saying ‘nyeh’ or ‘ee’ very nasally. But once the sound is focussed, I’ve found that the body self-regulates the outward air-flow

  15. Samuel Karlberg says:

    maybe if you only sing with a microphone and never sing without.

  16. Singing with the right frequency with an open throat means you have to support the sound with your abdominal muscles. I’m just saying why not achieve good breath support indirectly?

  17. Try Brett Manning’s 3 vocal tips. They are better than anything James Meny has to say… :p

  18. do u teach how to obtain whistle notes?

  19. Michael Dacanay says:

    i can”t hear your singers voice

  20. Michael Dacanay says:

    hey thanks for the back up! hehehe!

  21. helmetBETTY says:

    there is nothing you can do about your vocal, if you have a bad singing, be thankful atleast you can talk.

  22. Mynameisaw says:

    @helmetBETTY Wrong, anyone can learn to sing to a certain degree, there are limits, but with proper vocal training you can improve the quality of your singing dramatically.

  23. Michael Dacanay says:

    hello test mic test, oh there’s no mic.. LOL

  24. Gregory McDaniel says:

    I love your advice. I wish you had your videos numbered so I could follow the lessons in order.

  25. DimeBag Doris says:

    hahahahahahaha holly shit he looks like a bigger verson of the fat dude in Boat trip

  26. @Mynameisaw the limit is set in your mind only.

  27. Mynameisaw says:

    @hamberg42 No.. the limit is set by your physical make up, doesn’t matter how much or how hard you practice, if your vocals aren’t able to stretch to certain limits, you’ll never reach them

  28. Mynameisaw says:

    @hamberg42 And your a fucking hippy fag, now fuck off

  29. Mynameisaw says:

    @hamberg42 “Pussy internet nerd” Says the one threatening someone else over the net :’))))
    Secondly, I work as a sound tech at my local venue.
    and thirdly, fuck you hippy scum, never heard of soap you dirty cunt?

  30. @Mynameisaw

    Really? You really though you might be about to say something worth while after that? Why are you still posting.

    1) I told you to tell me where you are dumb fuck. I’d like to pay you a visit.
    2) Wow really? Do you want a prize? No one cares

  31. Leonardo Nasir says:

    @Mynameisaw look up Guy Babusek for the perfect example of a baritone turned tenor. It is quite possible to expand your range.
