Addicted To Love – How To Sing Better With Limited Range – Voice Coach Ken Tamplin – Vocal Academy

Often times in this day and age with all the singing shows etc., people place such a high emphasis on vocal range, as though this is the only way to determine if someone is a good singer.

This could not be further from the truth.

While it is awesome to have a great range as it increases our toolbox for what we can do creatively/musically, it is far from the only thing that makes us great.

What I try to demonstrate in this video is that Robert Palmer had a very limited range.

But it’s what he did with that range that mattered.

Not everyone is looking to have four octaves on their voice.

But you have a story that no one else has.

Let me say this again. You have a story that no one else has.

Its time that you get out and tell your own story and not worry so much about whether you stack up to American Idol, The Voice, X Factor, and so on.

Get out and kick some booty with your own voice and tell your story!

  1. Thanks again Ken your awesome and pls. Stay healthy cause for me your #1 coach and no body else. Peace and may God bless you always. Now I can sing only at Smule but still a lot of compliments I got, cause my voice was change cause of u๐Ÿ˜Žthanks a million๐Ÿ‘

  2. In respect of range, or lack thereof, I suggest again Ken, that you take a Paul Williams’ song, as also performed by The Carpenters ()perhaps, and demonstrate how he imbues the song with vulnerability, through his slightly limited (but marvellous) voice. Ordinary Fool () is a particularly good pick. Lastly, enjoyed this version of Addicted … , Ken. Best wishes

  3. I might as well face it, I’m addicted to singing too. All great points on range. I never thought about this one, so grabbed my guitar, looked up the chords (easy), played and sang and my TC Helicon Voice Live Play has me at 93% accuracy in practice mode. I think I will keep this one! Thanks Ken, Rock on.

    Hey Ken! Awesome cover btw. Can I ask you something? Do you know what type of male voice is a D2-Bb5 range? I have problem with what voice I am. I have to say that I have a low speaking register.

  5. My voice sounds like a tenor but i only have the range of a baritone…so disgusting ๐Ÿ˜•..I really wish i could sing rich high notes like you..anyway keep up the good work

  7. I thought Tori would be doing this song ;). I think you need to smoke a pack before you do one of R.P.’s songs.

  8. Needed this today! What a great reminder that range is no substitute for strong songwriting and vocal charisma. Thank you!!

  9. Elisa Capllonch

    Knew this song because of Tina Turner’s version. Love the song! Thanks Ken, you make everything seem possible! Other coaches usually want only gifted students.

  10. Awsome man! Never expected any less! Loving your boogie at the start! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Keep rocking Ken!! ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

  11. what a vocal power you have sir….I follow your exercise and it works nicely….. thanks…..ktva is the great academy….

  12. I had thyroid cancer and also had my whole neck fused and was cut from chin to chest. I retune music down to my range now. Baritone guitars tuned down to a standard.

  13. ADAM.W.SMITH AGAM

    Hey sir i want to make a good variation in my voice…i mean i want to do variation like zyan malik.plz teach me…?i want to learn…how can i do it?

  14. Awww…I remember when this song came on MTV when hey actually played music. I had heard that Robert Palmer had died…is that true? Great rendition. It’s true…he definitely made the most of his range.

  15. Ken, i heard that when you were starting out your range was like G1-F3 now its E1-C6. How did you increase the low end of your range and how long did it take.

  16. Cross Eyed Harry

    Man, I always love your great positive vibe and attitude! P.S. I listened to this with my eyes closed and swear I heard some Paul Rogers coming through. I’m gonna have to listen to some Bad Company now for certain~

  17. that was great ken another fun song to do remember the cutting crew I just died in your arms tonight that don’t have lot of upper range I guess they would more power notes maybe I don’t know but keep rocking brio

  18. Basement Berean

    That was encouraging. Much of singing – to me anyway – seems to be strategic planning on how to emphasize strengths and work around weaknesses.

  19. Thanks Ken. I’m like you, male, about the same age and voice. I never thought I could sing but now I see that there is no reason I can’t. Once I get the breathing down I think I could be a decent singer.
