Adventure 24 ~ How To Sing Overtones

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to report that not only have I submitted my tax return but I’ve also paid my tax bill! (That rap really worked 🙂 )

I feel so good, I could sing.  So I’m going to do just that! Todays’ adventure sees me trying my hand at overtone singing (sometimes called harmonic singing or throat singing).

I followed a 5-minute You Tube tutorial for beginners. To optimise acoustics, I took myself into the bathroom. I had to keep the light off because it is attached to a very noisy fan – that’s why it’s so dark 🙂

I recorded my first attempt. You have to listen very carefully but you can actually hear the overtones (they are like a whistle above the “drone”of my voice). A little more practice  (and a “tighter” aperture) might be required but the tutorial did seem to work!

I am just going outside and may be some time.
