The Tight Throat
This week’s singing lesson is about the singer’s worst enemy. The HIGH NOTE Strangler. The high note strangler comes just when you are getting ready to sing the most important notes of a song and he strangles you until nothing more can come out. This is a real problem for a lot of singers.The problem doesn’t exist in your throat though.
