That's Odd

I’ve been playing around with my voice in the studio lately. Something very odd has been happening. At least, it’s something odd to me. I’ve been singing some arpeggios (you know, up and down, do mi sol do sol mi do), starting on random notes and figuring out how it feels to sing around there.

I’ve been getting to around f-sharp or g above middle c with no adverse effects. That’s odd. That’s not what I expect. Something is starting to click. I’m not straining. I’m not pushing. My body is finally starting to respond to more than 2 decades of vocal instruction that it wasn’t ready for when it received it.

The question is, can I apply this newfound facility to the work I have coming up over the next few weeks?

As always, time will tell.
