    I thought I finally had a grasp on the world. And then I hear Sam talk about mix and it's back at one for me... :(

    What do you call it when a vocalist uses a zig-zaggy climb from chest to head to create that G2, G5 to F5... It kinda bothers me that I can be in falsetto almost country Elvis like then I can hit that Roy Orbison Whitney Houston high vocal range. I do a lot of effortless breathing when I manifest these groovy vibrato effects ala Smokey Robinson. I think I may be a countertenor and soprano, inheriting my mothers vocals, who has the whistle register of Mariah Carey. Definitely, I sing more like a female but as a male I can settle into a comfy country D2 range falsetto.

    This gives me more insight into technical approaches to singing than a year taking lessons did. It makes me feel happy and sad at the same time because I wasted so much time but I also feel like I am finally understanding how I can treat my voice and myself better while singing

    For example Dinah Jane from Fifth harmony has a very "chesty mix" and that's why I think ppl say she has a powerful voice. Am I right? Because Dinah has such a heavy mix, I think she should lighten her Mix so don't get tired while singing.

    But headvoice can also be brought down in a connected manner and it's usually not considered mixed voice.

    I know I have close to zero chance (almost a zero) but I'll keep trying, because you are my favorite voice teacher out here and I'd love to see you react to a voice has the EXACT same issues as mine..
    Please react to 2NE1'S Park Bom "U & I - live" she's ruined her voice and got lymph nodes because of the techniques YG forced her to use, it'd be a good example, a sad one, but good.
    PS: yup.. I too can't sing now without hurting my throat because I mimicked her so much since the day 2NE1 debuted
    PSS: if you kindly give few tips on "how to sing and not hurt your throat" it'd be awesome for me because I kind of forgot how and can't reverse it. -Sorry for the long comment-

    I love your precision with word choice. As someone in the medical field, certain terms I despise for the same reasons, in that they're broad or not accurate with where they focus, which can lead to people not being able to relate or understand.
    Love your critical thinking and analysis skills not just with the music, but also the word choices and the difference they make with allowing everyone to relate. Good on you.

    Okay I'm starting to really lose my sense of what's still a mix, because the end of "heady mix" was starting to sound a tonne like head-voice to me. That was vibrating up in between my head, it just still had cord closure, where as when they said "head voice" it was without cord closure...

    Adele explained her vocal damage. She totally ignored any of the training she was offered in school because she was young and fooling around, then when she got signed, her producer made her screech out of range ("you can do it, see?")then she tried to sustain it live and BAMB. Sia is the same way. NO training at all - once years ago she had laryngitis and Tweeted out "could anyone help her with a home remedy so she could sing that day" LOL. RIGHT, that Mitch Grassi clip is his mix. We fans know from watching every single thing he sings so we can tell when he's out of mix. He's the mixmaster #mixceps and he's very good at singing soft. Love his messa di voce. As you wondered before if it's his anatomy - yep.

    Tell me, do you ever listen to music, and FEEL the music, without analyzing it to bits and pieces?
    Srsly, It seems like your knowledge seperates youi and/or moves you away from, instead of feeling/ listening to music and enjoying it. .... (pondering)
