  1. I hate practice, it takes so long!!! But if it wasn’t for practice I wouldn’t be able to do what I’m good at. Not that I’m saying I’m good at singing, but what I am good at I practiced it.

    Oh wait, yall don’t care. Ok, happy singing :), and remember to use your answering machine because its not the voice you heard in your head or whatever this guy is talking about 😛

    that is true. my voice is a lot higher and sweeter-soundingish when i hear it on an answering machine or some kind of recorder, but deep and not so sweet regularly. that’s weird.

  3. Try cupping both ears and pushing them forward a little, or cupping one ear and cupping your mouth, making a channel to one ear. You pick up more external sound that way

  4. WTF!!!!! how was that teaching us how to hear our real voice. thats bullshit man. screw it, this made me lose faith in expert village. i mean im sure some of their videos r reliable but if they can stand behind this than fuck it.

  5. Actually you sound different on an answeringmachine or a phone recording (what ever) because the low-quality mics usually don’t pick up low frequencies which come from your body when you talk. Decent vocal mics pick that shit up… usually.

    Just something that I’ve noticed when hearing my voice over different mics etc.

  6. The reason it sounds different on an answering machine is because it’s a machine. It’s not gonna playback an exact sample of your voice – thats just common sense..
    And please stop putting “How to..” in your title if you don’t actually show how to do the act. Your just explaining what your supposed to be showing. Any fool can go Google that information.

    @looi117 Probably not, because there are other factors effecting the recording like shitty built in microphones, electrical noise, ect. that distort that sound

  8. I hate my voice recorded. I swear to God I hate it! lol… Only when I have really good recording equipment and it makes me sound like I have what I consider my trademark sexy alto and not Mickey Mouse do I like it!

  9. @macktheplate yeah 7 octaves sounds physically impossible, I play the piano, and I know what 7 octaves sounds like. I give him credit for trying, though! He has other good points to look at.

  10. I sound weird when I record my voice.
    Sounds like I’ve got this creepy naisil <----? idk how to spell voice.. And I sound really good when I don't record it, like I sound really good to myself but... ;.;

    The same old speech again… sr if u guys can teach the way of learning notes and pitch.. n scales..it vl be much better…dont try wasting time out hea.. time is short, try teaching the main lessons rather than secondary..sorry but i told the truth..

  12. I am told I sound different on an answering machine or over the phone than in person…So I disagree with this. There are better ways to hear your real voice without using electronics.

    1. oXForever FlawlessXo he is wrong, if you was singing then that wasn’t your real voice because videos don’t pick up your real vocals so you sound better than you think
