Did I mention "Fooled Around and Fell in Love"   by Elvin Bishop?

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Here's one... It's a song probably only die hard Elton John fans know, and as such it's absolutely one of my favorites.

Now Elton sings this in his classic Falsetto/head voice which is definitely doable for anybody who knows how to sing and stay a whole song in that configuration, but the real challenge here is for you higher voiced males to sing in full/mixed voice... it's very very tough!
This is a difficult, word-heavy, almost stacatto-ish lyric (especially during the choruses), which will require EXPERT navigation of your passagio in order not to choke and close off. If you try it, be very careful and watch your step. Good luck!

Phil, I'm a tenor and all songs I wanna sing are in my passagio as well. My first bridge would be around E F F# and if I couldn't sing in my 1st bridge I would have a little more than an octave to sing with, that's it!

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Here's another nice one, quite different for Kiss.... A very poppy mid tempo ballad.
I believe Gene uses falsetto during parts of this... Try doing this one in full voice, it's rather tricky in spots...

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Oh, yeah?

Some more KISS and some more passagio. Especially if you are going to sing it in Paul's range.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

this is one of those songs where you don't realize the difficulty till you actually go to sing it.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

The Verses on this one are very difficult, lots of focused control. Chorus surprisingly easier.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

It's been a while....

This one caught me a bit off guard. Such a pretty little song, no crazy high notes or anything, yet it's quite challenging.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

One of the first songs I remember hearing on the radio. I just can't remember if it was 1965 or 1966. My memory is hazy on some details but I remember this song and it soothed me. I think it is one of the finest voices I have ever heard.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

Haha cool topic man!

Ok now that Elton John was mentioned, I gotta say this one is a real tough one, it just sounds tame at first, LOL



The hardest part for me are the hard consonants and vowel shifting on the pre-chorus; "He was born a PAUPER TO A PAWN on a CHRISTMAS day" The only way I could do it comfortably and keep an open throat is to make more of a B and G sound instead of the P and C onsets (I am still working on that!) . Not to mention the melody in that part hovers around G-A4 the entire time, no wonder Elton isn't hitting the A4s as much in that part nowadays.

yes, this one is a bitch...i have found you really have to be warmed and open and how i get it is to cry on those a4s while you keep them tucked in (not spreading out).

fear that section's difficulty and you're done.....

good example of a difficult section because of the way it's sung. dan, you may not a agree, but some voices are managing a lot of breath pressure up there.

Re: Passasgio workout songs

I don't care if it's just mainstream crap, but this vocalist is awesome. I like his tonality.



I had to edit to add this. This is better than Layne could have ever done, I think. He's much more technical of a singer.
