    How can I cure vocal hoarseness sore throat and get rid of vocal neck jaw and throat and tongue tension and avoid strain because I want to fix that.

  2. Hey Justin! Thanks for this video! I have met a few teachers (especially SLS ones) who are against the ‘ay’ vowel out of fear that the students will pull chest and strain themselves – they always tell them to narrow it more to an ‘iy’. The problem is, it does not give the same urgency – some songs just do not work without that bright, chesty ‘ay’!

  3. Have always struggled with AY (and Eh, which is the first half of the diphthong that is AY)…even when speaking.   I lose compression and often have the note / word breakup.  I’m now seeing that my tongue is positioned much more like AH (too flat).  Focusing on getting the tongue up (more like EE), might be the thing I’ve been doing wrong.
