Whenever you’re experiencing vocal trouble, whether it be a certain line in a song or just general vocal fatigue, the answer is almost always to RELAX. Relax your jaw. Relax your shoulders. Relax your mind. If you’re singing some huge ascending lyric, don’t create tension on the way up to that high note. Relax into it. Challenge yourself to maintain the same volume throughout the entire line. If you are frustrated and panicked because your voice just hasn’t been cooperating the last few days, relax. Take a day or two to step away from a song or from singing all together. Allow your instrument and your spirit to rest. Remember, if you are stumped for the answer to your vocal question, the answer is probably to relax.
