... the dynamics of the --word/lyric you "sing"?
So, for example, I might sing "yesssss", "yes", or "yyyyyyes".
-- What I am noticing in what I am listening to is that a more stoccato "yes", if even is "sung", or, is more drawn out as sung speaking voice, -- may sound "better" (more stoccato word is better). Anyone else notice that?
How I got onto this, --I was trying to figure out why I "like" some lyrics, as sung one way versus another.
-- It was not the fault of the Lyric, nor the Music, nor the Voice.
What sounded "amateurish" to me was that the ones I didn't "like", the person was trying sound like they were singing it versus, just singing it.
(They sounded like they were trying to sound like they were singing.)
Now, that is just a way of describing it as I can. That is likely not the case for the singer. However, there may be more "Pro" level vocalists here who "get" what I am describing and have an opinion, input, other?
On a similar question, --which may help to relate too:
-- I remember one time, long ago within a songwriting group I asked if anyone considered if they were singing the Root, 5th or 3rd of the Chord they were playing, to harmonize with/as vocally. No one "there" knew, what the heck I was talking about.
Then I got hold of some "studio" singers who validated the question, (as, "oh yeah....!"), but then had some, unusual elements to add. They said, of course the 3rd really defines the chord and may sound "out of tune" if sung with the chord, certain modulations; they avoided the Root note as the sung note (eh... that does not always work for me, pending the Progression); no one disputed the 5th as long as it was the "melody" note of the lyric.
-- This is directly related (to the above) since, regardless of Progression, there is the sub-melody of the Chord Modulation, Inversion as well and then the Dynamic and Pitch of the vocal and where it may as well modulate to. Maybe I am hearing to much sub-"modulation"... sing the Lyric stoccato and let the Chord or other "finish" the bar or beat... so again, thoughts? If any ? (Maybe this is why I/others like more syncopate, front/back heavy or ahead/behind the beat lyrics?)
I fully realize there are not many folks here now, end of October, and that's OK. There may be few "lurkers" though, so put it out there, here
(No rush... not looking for "quantity" If you don't get it, skip it , no need to frustrate yourself!)
