Find out the trick to singing high notes easily and without straining your voice.
You see, not all high notes are created equal. Some high notes sound high when in reality they are not actually that high at all… confused? Watch the video and I’ll explain everything.
One big thing to remember is that straining to hit high notes before you are ready is the FASTEST way to damage your voice. Use the technique I show you in the video to avoid hurting your voice and make your life a whole lot easier.
I hope you enjoy this video on high notes. I’ll go into the mechanics of singing high notes in another video.
Lots of love,
High notes are not created equal. They are relative to the rest of the song. Furthermore, most songs only have around one octave of notes for the vocalist to sing (on average).
What this means is that if you have a low voice, and you start off singing a note that is low and comfortable for you and then you sing up an octave, your highest note will be much lower than the top note of someone who has a high voice and starts off further up. However, your high note will still sound amazing and high. Why? Because like I said, high notes are relative to the rest of the song.
So if you are still working on your vocal range, don’t strain to hit notes that are too high for you because they will just sound nasty, instead you can transpose the song down a few notes to a key that suits your vocal range.
Your top notes will still sound high but they won’t be a struggle for you.
If you’re not able to read music and this is the first time you’ve heard of transposition, just know that it is a singing trick that the professionals use all the time. Myself included. In a vocalist’s world its called ‘picking your key’.
Every song can be transposed down or up to a key that suits your voice.
So the main take away here is don’t strain to get high notes, just transpose.
I’ll do another post on transposition soon to explain how to do this really clearly.
