Backwarding

Vocal lessons today were really hard. I sound as good as ever but I'm struggling with singing words. Still.

Keeping my tongue down while making moving shapes is hard. Usually the consonants blow me out or cause my tongue to rise. As soon as my tongue rises the whole sound I've got going comes apart.

The hardest part about singing is focus. Getting all the parts to work together by focusing. I've come a long way in a few years but this is the part where practice and changing yourself really starts to play a role. Where the amount of time you spend triggering the sensations is more valuable than just getting the sound out.

It's going to get better only if I practice more.
