jack johnson & vocal pointers

hey justin

just stumbled on one of your jack johnson lessons...not bad man, not bad.  

so i'm a 15 y/o guitarist & vocalist, i checked out your myspace (nice work, Falling Next to You was my favorite), and i write stuff simmelar to you and jack johnson, tho my voice is lower, like his.

from what i heard on your myspace, you have a pretty solid voice.  i wont spill my life story on you but i've been told i have a natural gift with music n whatnot, love to write and play, but i'm looking to advance my writing and singing abilities.    

it'd be sick if you made a vocal thread...if you dont want to do that, some vocal pointers are appreciated.

if you have some time, i'd love to hear from you, maybe give me a few pointers on a good warm up, excersises, things to do while singing to get solid tone, things to do to improve, etc.

I am a classically trained tenor. The best advice I can give to someone your age is get singing lessons. The generally attitude with voice is that you thing you can just practice and teach yourself. But there are some very important techniques that you have to be taught. And if you aren't using proper technique you are slowly damaging your voice every time you practice hard. That goes for all styles of singing.

So look for someone in your area who is experienced in teaching the style of singing you want to learn.
