Lane Yodeling...how to get started (55* d) RE: Yodeling...how to get started 27 Jan 03


Richie,
Thanks so much. It seems easier to me to jump an octave, rather than hold the same note and break my voice. The octave seems more natural (IF I can hit the note accurately, which I often don't) On the other hand, forcing myself to break it on the same note, as GUEST explains, does, in fact, seem to exercise my voice somehow and I noticed that my "normal" singing improved after some yodeling attempt sessions...

Would like to hear more about how Doc does it (and you). I'm a big admirer of his music - you play with him? Tell me more.

Allan C. - Great quote, thanks! I would never doubt that "real" cowboys never yodeled, but then, real ones were never as romantic as the hollywood image would lead us to belive - in many other ways...... hey, it's become part of a sector of music and I like it, want to learn it, so I'm not real concerned about what a real cowboy might think. :) And I agree with you about Roy Rogers and the Sons... wonderful music, yodels included.   However, it is an interesting point about how the cowboy would humm to his cattle - if he yodeled and it came out anything like the noise I'm making at this point, a stampede would surely result...
