    sometimes when i hold higher notes for a long time, i get a little light
    headed, even without straining. any explanations why? (and i’m looking for
    more than just “you’re doing it wrong”)

  2. Sarah Crilly says:

    I think I have the same problem, and then my teeth start to tingle, so I
    can’t really sing for that long:/

  3. Hollywood David says:

    Your using all the oxygen in your body. It causes you to go light headed.

    Oh my lord, that’s atrocious. Can’t you hear how out of tune your G/G# was?
    Dreadful. Jaw down in front, tongue slighly open/downward rounded in back,
    pencil eraser space between your molars – you don’t have enough of a
    resonance chamber opened, which is causing all sorts of problems. You’re
    also fixated on the larynx too much; as if we had conscious control over
    it. Think more about how your breath supports itself, like a bagpipe, not
    the “tension, ” “compression” or approximation of the folds.

  7. Callan Carr says:

    Thank fuck you explained this to me, i felt for the longest time I’d never
    be able to sing cause everyone says “you should never feel anything in your
    throat it should be tension free” argh how i hate my old vocal coach so

    teaching us?

    If you can sing the beginning “MA MA MA MAAAAAAAAAA ” with the right pitch
    and vibrato, you pretty much succeeded

    I wish my teachers in school were as funky as you.

    fake voice. i always cracks…

  20. Ben Phillips says:

    Ok guys, please help me, I am 16 and I have been singing for about 8
    months, however, there is no progress, my voice also cracks on powerful
    high notes like Shawn Mendes’ song, “Show Me”. Is the cracking due to
    puberty or no? I would REALLY APPRECIATE some tips or some advice. Thanks

  25. Thank you for this video Jesse. Support is key indeed, no matter whatever
    genre or style of music you are doing – some necessary tension is needed
    for a fuller sound.

  26. Olle Carlsson says:

    So… is vocal fry and alot of air both needed to get the strain off? Im a
    baritone, beginner and straining like mad. Horrible :(

  27. Olle Carlsson says:

    Just tried to sing with a hell lot of air and sure it wipes out strain.
