Subject: RE: Help: Tips on singing falsetto?
Start by singing quietly - falsetto comes easier at low volume. Just try to imitate some song that you've heard sung that way - if you can't think of one, buy a Four Seasons record. Don't try to switch from your normal voice to falsetto immediately, like jazz/blues singers do - this takes either natural talent or practice. Mostly the ability is natural, so they can't say how they do it. Once you get the hang of it, you'll find you can switch naturally anyway. When you've got the ability to sing falsetto quietly, either increase the volume until it cracks or buy a microphone preamplifier. Above all, don't yodel.
