  1. Wow, I cannot believe you just said that about being a baritone! My singing
    teacher back in the day told me I was a 2nd baritone and that I should give
    up trying to be a rock singer, as most or all of them are tenors… I’m
    guessing? So, that being said, the band I was in was kind enough to tune
    down a whole step for me…crazy right! So glad I watched this! Thanks,

  2. Sorry, another singer that stands out with a deep talking voice; is Axle
    Rose, yet he sings high! Great points you have made in this video! I too
    have been convinced…to this day…that I’d always be a 2nd baritone! The
    band I was in from 87-91 wants to do a reunion in 2015 and it would be sooo
    cool if I could show-up and tell them that they do not need to tune down a
    whole step! Thanks…again, agw.

    Hey man, this is great, thanks a million for the videos, very encouraging!
    I wondering if you could have a listen to one of my videos of my songs and
    maybe give me some feedback of my vocals please? I would really appreciate
    Anyway, thanks again :)

  4. Wow this is a newer video . May buddy has a cassette collection of all
    thrash and 80s speed metal ,low and behold ,SHOUT was in there ! Shout has

    So f´ true!! A singer’s got to have guts to sing! Finally I hear sb well
    known and with PLENTY of knowledge on the subject say it. Couldn’t agree

  6. I once played a song at a bar in Dublin while the paid musician was on a
    break. Everyone went quiet, and when I went back to my friends they
    pretended they’d been outside and hadn’t heard. I had no idea that I was
    singing out of key. I could sing a tune, but I don’t think I even realised
    that there was supposed to be some kind of relationship between the notes I
    sang and those I played. Or maybe I assumed I was just hitting the right
    A few years later, I must have accidentally hit a note I was playing and I
    noticed how the sound of the voice and guitar seemed to reinforce each
    other. It gradually developed from there. Now, 20 years later, singing in
    tune is easy. I always hated my voice. I used to tighten my throat beyond
    belief to get compression, my jaw would get so tight the joints would ache,
    the muscle under my chin would get exhausted (Though singing NEVER gave me
    a sore throat. Not once. I still don’t know why) and I’d practice by
    screaming along to stuff that was well out of my usable range, just
    assuming I had a thin, weak tone. Again, it was an accident that helped. I
    was practicing to a practice guide (I believe it was the Jim Gillette one.
    Good exercises, but almost no explanation) and watching a movie and I kind
    of lost interest in the tape and relaxed. When I got back into it, I
    started pushing as hard as before, but for that first note, forgot to tense
    my entire neck! The difference in tone was amazing, so I immediately gave
    myself an excited pat on the back and started trying to find ways to hit
    the high notes without tightening my throat. That’s where I’m at today. If
    I wasn’t in some serious doodoo with the tax-man, I’d buy this vocal course
    right now. I know the Youtube videos don’t actually give any real info
    away, and that’s Ken’s right. We all gotta eat. But there’s plenty here to
    convince me that the course would teach me all the things I took 20 years
    to learn for myself and much more. People tell me I’m a good singer and
    have a good voice, but I know it’s not true. I know I’m better than most
    people who don’t practice. I know I’m better than most people who have been
    singing for a year. But if I’d had someone there to tell me what I was
    doing wrong, and to keep reminding me, I’d have got to where I am now in
    less than 2 years EASILY. Unlearning my bad habits will probably take
    longer than learning properly in the first place would have. I hope all
    this resonates with a few of y’all.

    Is There Really Such Thing As “Stress Free Singing”?

    I see many vocal coaches (and their students) promoting the idea that
    “there should be no stress while singing” and therefore frustrating the
    heck out of singers who think there is “something wrong with themselves”
    because they can’t, over night, achieved this “stress free” singing.
    (this also gives a vocal coach “tribal knowledge” to keep you coming back
    to them as the only one who has the answer to this elusive concept)

    This is nonsense and here’s why:

    Singing is like a sport. And with any sport, it’s not the absence of
    stress, it’s the management of stress that makes a great athlete.

    Think of it like this:

    When Lionel Messi is going to goal, do you think his body is “stressed?”
    (Anyone who says it isn’t has never played a sport before).

    But Lionel has learned the art of training his body and mind for that
    moment when it’s time for him to step on the gas, take on 3 players and
    score what “looks” like an “effortless goal.”

    But you can be assured, it was not done “without effort” or without

    Lionel achieved this through training his technical abilities as well as
    building stamina and muscle memory to achieve this consistency.

    Now it is true that some styles of singing require less stamina than others
    and therefore can be accomplished with less strength training.

    In other words, singing a light pop song requires very little “strength” in
    the sound whereas singing a heavy rock song often requires incredible
    strength and stamina.

    This is also true for those (like myself) that want to push their “limits”
    and abilities to be all they can be. This of course requires more “effort”
    and technical training.

    With that said, there are many stages to building this “stamina” and it’s
    ok to “find yourself” as one first starts with “damaging street singing”
    (with total stress) and going through the different stages of learning how
    to manage this stress away form the voice through correct training.

    If I didn’t show the different stages of this process, and only showed
    “perfection”, people would never learn that these people are all human,
    having to work on their craft just like yourself.


  10. I sound like Lucy Ricardo, but that doesn’t stop me. I sing at the top of
    my lungs with my doors locked ,windows closed,and of course, no witnesses.

    Nice channel, thanks for sharing. Peace.

  11. i understand the concept that anyone can hit the notes, but my issue is
    tone. no matter how hard I try, the natural tone of my voice is not
    pleasing, and I know many others with that problem. take guitars for the
    example, you can hit the same notes just as well on a taylor as a first
    act, but TONE. is there any way to control that?

  12. Michael Castro

    Hello Ken, I have a question about your course. I’m not tone def, but I
    have an issue with pitch and pitch control. It seems some things I can
    sing well and I’m on pitch, but other times I’m all over the place and
    usually flat. Is there anything in your course that helps deal with that
    issue as well as just how to use your throat properly? I mostly hear the
    slight pitch stuff if I record myself singing and then play it back.
    Acapella: forget about it.

  13. I try opening my throat and stuff but ugh it won’t work I wish that I could
    just call him or something so he can just fix my mistakes

  14. Hello Ken. I was just thinking, I’ve had choir class but I just can’t seem
    to get how to sing. I feel that I should be trained personally for help,
    because I may practice your techniques the wrong way. But thinking I’m
    doing it right. My main issue is I can’t open my throat. I use my talking
    voice to sing.

  15. Hi Ken,

    My name is Alex and I dwell in Moscow. I am an aspiring singer and I think
    I have the guts to become a very good one (if I master a correct
    technique). I admire your timbre and your range and – above all – your
    artistic passion and thank you for encouraging me and a whole lot of other
    guys across the world to sing and believe in ourselves. I can tell that you
    walk the walk and really can sing loud and pretty relaxed, but sometimes
    with some distortion – something that I want to do as well, but get
    strained and choke instead. By the way, I am very much influenced by
    Michael Kiske and Sebastian Bach as well as other hard rock/metal singers.
    My question is – is it possible to attend your tutorials in the USA and do
    you have any at all (I mean you seem to be so popular that your time is
    probably all booked up)? I believe that under the supervision of a
    qualified vocal coach you can progress much faster without damaging your
    voice ( I am currently taking some bel canto lessions, but all I really
    want to perform is rock).

    Thank you, Ken!

    Best regards,


    PS This Russian guy reminds me a little bit of you – check this out –

  16. Hey brotherman :), I’ve always played guitar and always tried to sing
    along, but after watching some stuff on here I’m actually getting better
    :D, I’d just love to be able to belt out stuff like creedence and the
    marshall tucker band – cant you see. Any help 😛 ? I have had no lessons at
    all, it just kind of clicks after an hour so and I try and build upon it

  17. Imagination Marketing Systems

    Liked your videos but this video increased my respect for your insight
    200%. I have seen people over the years overcome lack of natural ability in
    many disciplines with education and perseverance and nice to see you really
    get it. On the other end how many people who had natural talent lacked the
    respect for their gift because they didn’t have to work for it and trampled
    it underfoot.

  18. I was glad to hear you mention Dylan because most of these videos are very,
    well, singer.
    what if you don’t aspire to be on Broadway or in iron maiden, you like
    stuff like frank turner and chuck ragan and just wonder – with no
    experience at all – whether you can carry a tune?

  19. Don’t some peoples falsetto blend with there chest voice so it makes them
    sound like a good singer and sing easier my falsetto is not compatible with
    my chest or middle voice?

  20. Gryphon Lalonde

    I just found your channel, any advice on what video to start on? I’m not
    currently a very good singer but I can play guitar confidently.
