  1. Nice! I’ve been taking singing lessons since fall 2013 to correct airiness and tension from a lifetime of bad habits and am finally loosening up better, still working on it. Your video makes it really easy to tell the difference, I will use that information when listening back to my recorded lessons in addition to other live performances. Wonder if you could post tips on how to differentiate auto-tuned recordings sometime? Still waiting patiently for Kyuhyun’s updated analysis, too πŸ˜‰ Thanks Ahmin!


    1. Oh really? Auto-tuned? Like with pitch change or the robotic sounding one? Because I’ve never had anybody ask me that before or have this kind of issue ._. Interesting question though and thank you so much! I’ll be sure to always make these videos as helpful as possible!


  2. Please teach how to mix better and get rid of nasality and extend the middle range. Btw, ahmin, whats the difference between belting and mixing cause some people said belting is chest voice at high notes while mixing is a mix between chest and head.. can u explain??


    1. Do you mind if I answer these questions with future videos instead of typing them out? ^ ^ It’s easier to show and hear it for yourself, actually.


  3. OMG! I feel like this was made for me! Thank you so much this helps me so much. If you saw my comment on YouTube it’s true. It’s very hard for me, I make my voice heavier than it actually is. So I had to change my voice. I know I’m still young but my vocal type is so hard to determinate.


      1. Oh the Filipina girl!! Yes it’s her, she has some serious technical issues, many Filipino vocalists seem to like doing that.. the tongue thing.


      2. Yup. I also noticed that. Charice, Zendee Rose, Regine Velasquez, Sarah Geronimo… many more. I think they have adopted that from Christina Aguilera.

        I only know two divas who don’t do that: Jonalyn Viray and Aicelle Santos (co-member of Jonalyn from La Diva. I think she’s the one who sings the low notes).


      3. Jonalyn is the real diva in the Philippines. LOL. Sadly, considering the trend not just in the Philippines but also in the whole world, those who are technically good are underrated. Only few of them are actually in the limelight.

        By the way, what can you say about Jona’s lower extension? I think, she needs to improve this area. LOL. (She can sing 3.3 octaves, though. If I’m not mistaken, F3 – B6, and she has an extensive falsetto range.)

      4. I know that apart from head voice and belting, her lower range isnt great and her whistle can be quite messy


  4. Thanks to this video I can more or less identify if a vocalist is supporting or not in the mixed register/upper register. Do you have tips on identifying if someone is supporting in the lower range? Like how do I know if a note is airy or sung with lowered larynx?


      1. …What about them? They’re not resonant in the fifth octave with inconsistent support in the fourth so I don’t understand why you’re mentioning their names.


      2. My bad. But would it be possible if someone has a well developed head voice but a not so developed mixed voice?
