Subject: RE: Help: Tips on singing falsetto?
'Chest tones' are the more powerful sounds produced when singing 'from the diaphragm', typical of an operatic tenor.

'Head tones' are the clear, boyish sounds produced by 'lifting' your voice as if singing through a chimney in the top of your head.

The extreme nasal tones as produced by Franki Valli, or to a lesser extent by the Beach Boys and Bee Gees, are examples of how not to do it, though the technique required is similar.

As with any musical technique, it's practice and more practice!
