Thread Name: Falsetto
Subject: RE: Falsetto
Thanks for the imput, Poppa and Robin. As in just about everything I do, I can tell something is happening, but I don't know physically, what it is. And you're right, Poppa, when you really open up and let that chest voice come out, it often has a rougher sound to it. Maybe it doesn't have to if you know what you're doing. The best I can describe it is that you completely relax and reach deep down inside of you. When I'm singing gospel, there are times when I feel like I can step outside of my body and watch what I'm doing.

As for female falsetto, Nelly Furtado has an all-pervasive video out these days called Powerless. She comfortably breaks into a falsetto on the chorus... there's no difficulty telling which note where she changes into falsetto. I don't know whether the obvious change is by choice, or not. Some people can flow into falsetto so smoothly that you can't tell where the change occurs.
