Amy Winehouse’s ‘Stronger Than Me’
This iconic song requires the utilization of a unique vocal technique – twang. Twang’s nasal resonance helps to create a distinct tone. Apart from Amy Winehouse, artists like Adele and Elvis Presley have used this technique effectively in their songs, “Rolling In The Deep” and “Hound Dog” respectively.
Twang refers to a specific voice quality achieved when the larynx is narrow. This results in a bright, focused sound often associated with country singing or blues music. It can add a unique dimension to every syllable. Here is an article explaining this technique in detail, and a video exercise to practice it.
Vocal Range and Pitch
The first step to learning any song is identifying if it fits your vocal range. Use the Singing Carrots Vocal Range Test to determine your singing boundaries as well as the Pitch Accuracy Test to assess your ability to match pitch.
Learning the Song
Start by familiarizing yourself with the lyrics, melody, and rhythm of “Stronger Than Me”. Use the Vocal Pitch Monitor to see your sung notes and ensure they match the melody line correctly.
Remember to practice runs slowly at first, gradually picking up the speed as your accuracy increases. Use Singer Carrots’ Pitch Training tools to train your voice for accuracy and agility.
It’s essential to find your own authentic voice, rather than merely imitating the original singer. Check out this article on how to find your own authentic voice.
