Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

I can't do the grit in break regions!!!!

Folks, I'm experimenting a hard time doing grit in my break regions (E4-A4), I can do the low grits like some songs of metallica, and I can do skid row songs... but I just cannot sing foo fighters and alice in chains lol... This notes stay in tune when I'm singing clean, but they break when I try to add a grit to them...
Another question is: Why the hell I'm losting volume on my high notes when adding grit? hahaha... I think it's the support of this notes... because I can do high grits easily, and I stop paying atention to the support and ressonance...
And if you could... give me some tips of how can I develop a killer grit in that region (E4-A4)...

Re: I can't do the grit in break regions!!!!

Practice using the stair stepping approach (Raise Your Voice 2) via Grit Sirens. It takes time to lock down that grit in the break area;)
