Ok,den, drop c is like Keola’s C? Then Bradda Fran mentioned C, which would be open C? I Liked Earl’s post, I do tend to have a touch of throat singing tendencies. I’ve also been told that I sound like Danny Kaleikini at times, when I’m trying to impersonate Elvis.

Drop C is also called "Leonard's C" after Uncle Leonard Kwan. Low to high: CGDGBD, used extensively on "the red album". I originally learned "Kilauea" tuning as "C Wahine" or "Keola's C" back in the '70s.

from the above quote (Book of Ear)l,
"During one of the three voice lessons I took years ago, the teacher said, "Bark like a dog". Huh? Bark in the middle of your speaking voice range, then extend the duration to actually make a note. The barking motion uses all the supporting core muscles and your diaphragm. It was the clearest description that I've ever heard."

to which I reply: But THAT IS my speaking and singing voice!
Oh man, this room can get Ruff!

I find drills of playing chord progressions that create muscle memory make it easier to find a key suitable for my vocal range and play right into it. These tend to be the keys I use most often:

Key_Chord Progression.......................Key_Vamp C - ..C.....C7....F....Fm....G7....C...........C -...D7...G7...C.... F - ..F......F7....Bb..Bbm..C7....F............F -...G7...C7...F.... A - ..A.....A7....D....Dm...E7.....A...........A -...B7....E7...A... G - ..G....G7....C....Cm...D7....G...........G -...A7...D7...G... D - ..D....D7....G....Gm...A7....D............D -...E7...A7...D...

It's easier to ask for forgiveness, than permission!

It's all about finding the patterns.
