Charlie Baum Taking on the Big Boys? - classic big long ballads (549* d) RE: Taking on the Big Boys? - classic big long bal 21 Jan 10


All the vocal and instrumental techniques that Brian Peters refers to a few posts above may be tools in my toolbox, but I need to see the story play out (like a movie) and tell the story afresh each time. While I have access to all those tools (breath support, timbre, timing, etc.) and have an idea of how to use them to get the effects I want, each telling of the tale or singing of the song needs to be freshly assembled if it is to be any good. Otherwise, I could just play some recording. But creating it anew each time in the present moment is what engages me, and my listeners notice and take pleasure in that.
