    what's some tips, techniques, and exercises ya do to improve your vocals ?

    I'm mainly a singer, I take classes to improve technique and breathing. I like to challenge myself and sing difficult songs with a lot of range. Rapping is a part of me a well, I grew up in the freestyle era, it's a second nature.

    What are some of the techniques and breathing work you do

  • practice/freestyle a lot

    and try different flows and delivery when recording for like 4-8 bars and then play it back again and again to see what style suits you the most.

    and dont try to sound like your favorite artist....that's a mistake a lot of us make but you have to find your niche

    I used to be part of the church choir and my school's choir and then took a few classes on holding notes, writing music and raising voice pitch ....I was okay.

    fast forward 10 years later and drinking and smoking got my voice deep and rugged

    In the same vein, don’t be afraid to sound a little like your favorite artists cause you probably will at first. Everyone does.

    the faster you snap out of that stage the better it is for your creativity

    I cant imagine travis scott or thugga trying to sound like somebody else even though they proly went through it too.

    I mean like most singers on this site probably pull a lot from frank and Kanye at first. If you listened to emo bands, your voice will probably have that tinge in it. It’s usually a combo of a few singers so it’s prolly not even noticeable to anyone but you.

    It’s usually more like that kind of situation vs literally copying someone.

    oh yeah I feel you.

    getting influenced and even motivated from your fav artists is a good thing

    but if you're like 5 years deep you need to try something new

    edit: for example, I used to do the ''doot doot'' ad libs kendrick does but I found my own way to emphasize my vocals later on. It was a phase that i HAD to go through.

  • As far as singing goes I've been using this video for the last couple of weeks, off and on

    Artboard

    As far as techniques...

    Usually EQ the lows out my voice first, then use a couple of regular compressors, a multiband compressor, some chorus at like 15% or 20% wetness, reverb and then delay. At least for the main vocals

    I like to use most of the same for adlibs or backing vocals, but I cut out both the highs and lows and just keep the mid range frequencies

  • also make sure your microphone isn't facing backwards... was making that mistake for mad long wondering why my vocals sounded so bad

  • by singing and rapping, tf

    he has breathing technique videos and also videos that utilize piano scales to help with your range, vocal tone, vocal agility and things of that nature. it's really a goldmine of useful exercises.

  • Lip trills help a lot with smoothing the transition between chest and head voice

    Hold a ts or a sh sound for a 4 or 8 count then rest, repeat. The last time hold it for as long as you can. After a while, you'll be able to hold for over a minute!

    Of course do scales and arpeggios and your vocal warm-ups before you sing.

    Never strain your voice, you'll lose it at a young age. I'm young myself, but I know a few older people who strained so much they didn't have much of a voice in their 40s.
