Topic: "We're LOSING Him! BREATHE, Dagnabbit!"
I put this here because I could find a better place, so if it needs moving, please do it for me, mods? Thanks
Okay, what I wanted to write about is the following:
I have lost count of how many Youtube/Soundcloud recordings I have listened to, but in more than just a few I've noticed y'all running out of breath and throwing that little "gasp" in there before the next verse.
I'm sure you know that's not cool. Thus having for 17 years worked as a respiratory therapist plus having taught breathing to COPD patients, I'm going to put on my therapists cap (much like a nurses' cap, only different: and link y'all to a guy on YT who shows us all some nice exercises for singers here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJzflvDTWno.
Think of diaphragmatic exercises as Kegels just a little higher up.
You don't think all I do is just sit here do ya? Gotta work that ol' sphincter muscle too, boys and girls. That's the one you'll need before stepping onstage.
