Now we get into some new and
strangely wonderful tools.
One of which is a nose buzz.
We're gonna also use this later on.
When we talk about some other elements to
But hey, I'm gonna give it to you right
[LAUGH] This is so strange.
You hold your nose, and you're going to
buzz into your nose.
You're not gonna use words.
It's kind of strange talking holding my
You're not gonna use words.
You're just gonna buzz the notes.
If you know
It makes your nose run, you, so get some
Kleenex when you do this.
But if you know this song, do it along
with me and test this out.
[SOUND] So it's buzzing here.
in the mouth.
[SOUND] We're not in the mouth, we're in
[SOUND] Okay, I'm done
doing this myself.
[LAUGH] I really need a Kleenex.
[LAUGH] Lovely, huh?
This may take a little practice for
you to get what I mean by buzzing it in
Or you might just, like a duck to water,.
Instantly you can do it.
If you do need to work on it, be mindful
that you're becoming a different,
instrument, that's an easy way to think of
You're being a nose instrument, not a
And you just want that buzz.
And what that buzz is going to do is it's
going to actually lift some of
the peaks of the notes so that they can
the top of the note needs to vibrate,
which is in this area.
A lot of singers try to pull these muscles
To co, you know, like to try to reach for
the note, but
also these two areas need to balance.
So the vocals folds vibrate and they
create the notes of your melody.
And that vibration has to go various
places, including here.
If you pull it out of here.
You'll go flat.
This enhances here and gets
this area working better with this area,
because they need to balance each other.
So that's what you're achieving with it,
as long long as you really let that sound
vibrate in your nose.
If you've ever, hummed through wax paper
put on a comb,
which we used to do back in my high school
You kind of kazoo, or, or, or if you've
ever played a kazoo or heard one,
it's a similar kind of a sound, you know,
and you kinda buzz into it.
[SOUND] you know, so,.
Be a nose instrument when you're doing
this it helps, if you think it that way.
Okay, that's the next remedy.
Now, we are gonna go into something
similar to a nose buzz.
And for lack of a better label I call this
the bratty E sound.
There's two ways you can do it.
But basically, if you're familiar with the
on that sitcom on TV if you ever watched
that, you're gonna kinda sound like Urkel.
This again is enhancing these muscles and
this area of resonance which gives you
gre, really greater ease of singing.
It's so cool.
Using the melody of
Georgia on my Mind, [SOUND].
Now, your tongue might change shape a
little bit but you're going to
feel the vibration right around the roof
of the mouth here, not back here so much.
[SOUND] Now, if you have trouble with that
you can pull your nose up,
this is the second way of doing it.
But, still it's a bratty E.
crunch crunch, crunch.
Eee, ee, ee, ee.
Now just cuz you're on a lower note don't
drop your nose.
EE, ee, and
if you need to do it in a mirror it helps.
Ee, ee, ee, ee, ee, ee, there you go,
ee, ee, ee, this is so silly
Ee, but it really helps.
You're getting it from here,
not by pulling here.
So, take your time.
These things don't necessarily,
instantly, you can do it, although if you
But you know, just take your time, search,
this is like a little research.
Program for you, [LAUGH] where you're
getting to know your own body, your
own instrument in making these different
sounds, and how to balance energy,
and it's a, it's a deeper self-knowledge
of, of you, your instrument.
It develops your way of.
Thinking so you really become the in
command of your thoughts,
where you're putting your attention, how
you're thinking of sound.
It, it's a beautiful exploration, a
