Singing Lessons – HERE I AM BABY – Al Green cover – Increase Vocal Range – Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy
Here is another great song from an artist and a genre that, like many others, has inspired me to be a better singer. This is one of several videos where I talk about combining elements from several of your favorite artists’ styles and putting them together to form your own unique sound and style. Check it out and see what I mean.

Learn about breath support, increase vocal range, and reduce tension when singing. I also offer personal training, live in person, or via skype from anyplace in the world. You can also get my home course and learn more with each self-paced lesson.

  1. the proof os in the singing. i like it. even thou i never heard the original singer yet. i like your sound… the best…

  2. Hey ken I want to learn to do a distorted sound can you do “you know you’re right by nirvana” I just can’t get they hang of compression or distortion please upload a video if it for me 🙂 p.s you rock!!!

    1. +Mitchell Woodbright no not at the moment. Don’t have a good enough computer or anything to record. Have been trying to put together a band for a couple years but it never works out. I’m just focusing on getting my voice and writing where I want it before I try to find some band members again.

    2. +Saskaruto16 that’s cool mate, even a phone recording would still give you an idea of your sound, if you ever upload something message me and I’ll check it out

    3. +Mitchell Woodbright Kk. Yeah I have recorded on my phone before but it sounds like shit cause rasp on a phone mic is not a good recoding make.

    I hope you enjoy this tune, an example of soulful R and B from Al Green, with a little bit of other artistic style mixed-in for good measure.

    Please LIKE, COMMENT, and SHARE! Thanks in advance!

    1. +Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy Dear Ken Tamplin, I hope that one day I could meet you in person. You are a wonderful human being.

  4. Hey Ken love your videos.

    I could use some help here, I have been covering alot of black veil brides songs (the newer two albums) and I find it really hard to hold a note with rasp on it for longs periods of time like he does. I can get it though most of a verse but I loose my power (and because of that my rasp) at the end. What can I do? Also, is their an easier way to move up past a middle c while adding rasp because I find it impossible to do with purely head voice? (I’m a bass – baritone if that makes a difference.)

  5. Hi guys! I have one final question to ask before I decide whether to purchase Ken’s course or not. I fully understand that there is no escaping applying certain techniques to properly sing, and that Ken provides a course that demonstrates how to apply these techniques . However, I also believe that everyone has a different approach to learning, and that there is no one set way that perfectly teaches one a certain technique. So that said, should I purchase the course, would there be any way to tell if I was actually benefiting from it? Like, is there anything that would indicate that I am learning and performing the taught techniques correctly?

      +EdgeJay Hi, EdgeJay, my singer’s forums at has more than 6,000 members.
      The KTVA forums have Student-only areas that are actually larger and more comprehensive than the public portions of the forums. Students can ask questions and get answers for detailed follow-up information, and you can submit audio and video demos for critique and advice from trained moderators. If you’re off-track, they will tell you what you need to do to get it right. You have to do the work of following the instructions in the course and from the moderators, and do your daily practice workouts in order for your voice to grow properly.

      There is a search feature in the forums, and chances are that many questions you may have are already answered there. You are right. People have different ways of learning. Over the course of time, thousands have taken my course, and we have answered many questions. You may have some new questions, or just need some clarification here and there.

      Frankly, you should be able to tell that your voice is growing and that you are benefitting from the lessons. That said, there are moderators and other students that are happy to answer your questions and watch and listen to your demos to help you along the way. You won’t be alone. You’ll be part of a community of singers who are helping one another to learn.

  6. +Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy Try this one next. How to Sing like Geddy Lee-Rush/Tom Sawyer/Working Man/Red Barchetta/By Tor and the Snow Dog.

  7. Hey Ken! You sound good as always. Do you have any songs by the band Rush that you sing? Maybe Tom Sawyer, Working man or The Temples of Syrinx???? Would be great to hear you sing those songs for sure. Keep up the good work!.

  8. I love Al Green and listen to him most days. He’s one of those people where you always feel better after a listen.

    Your heavier version is cool…good idea not to try to do a straight cover. Al’s just one of those artists where a direct copy just won’t work – as you point out. I like your version too!

    Rock on!

  9. I like the way you start the notes off, I like the initial kick at the right pitch, with power, hard to do! It kinda reminds me of Steve Walsh, the way he could hit those notes, he had a great tone to his vocals too. Great Job!

    1. Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy

      Thanks, William. That’s a big compliment. Mentioning Al Green and Steve Walsh in the same sentence is quite a profound statement.

  10. YOU HIT D HATHAWAY RITE ON THE BUTTON.
    NOW IF YOU COULD DO SOME LUTHER VANDROSS
    TO ME THAT WOULD REALLY BE GREAT.
    I THINK LUTHER IS SUPERB
    THANKS AGAIN
    KEITH KUHN

    1. Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy

      Yes, KEITH, Luther is one of my favorites! I’ll have to think about that. Thanks for the suggestion!

  11. Great way to make a timeless song by someone like the Rev. Al Green rock! Your version is even 1000 times better than that by UB40.

  12. I love it! People could take voice lessons all year and not learn something as important as singing in your own voice. Ken’s lessons are epiphanies.
