  1. Alpha Male Voice Resonator

    As promised, from my post about ‘Alpha Body Language’, I offered techniques on how to achieve that ‘deep booming voice’ that most of the gurus talk about. And since the only people I enjoy teasing are women, I’m going to deliver the goods.
    Background: I consider myself a good/ very good actor. I don’t have problems getting work, but if there is one area where I outclass mostly every other actor in, it is with my voice. I make my living doing cartoon voices and dubbing movies.
    Okay, so you’re in a club, you’re opening a set, and you have to keep their attention with, among other things, a voice that can project over the loud music. Now, a simple method would be to lower your voice by talking deeper. Many people try this by just lowering their Adam’s apple. This is wrong. Many may find by the end of the night, that their voice is totally fucked after yelling for a bunch of hours in a smokey environment. If you want to permanently fuck up your voice for years to come, then keep doing this. However, if you want to develop a voice where you don’t have to yell, and you just naturally speak in an Alpha voice, then read on.
    1. Breath placement/ resonators.
    First, let’s locate the proper resonator placements. A resonator is basically where your voice vibrates from. Say this out loud “Ahhhhh? for about five seconds. Try to notice where your voice is vibrating from. There are four major resonators we are going to deal with here.
    a. Head voice. Say “Ahhh? again, and try to make it resonate from the top of your head. Place your hand on the top of your head, and heighten your voice so that you feel the vibration on the crown of your head. You will notice this voice is far more high-pitched than your normal voice. Feel it? Good. That’s your AFC voice. Use it only in comical situations.
    b. Throat voice. Saying “Ahhhh? again, try to make it resonate from your throat voice. Now, you will notice that you have much more range here, but even when you lower your voice to a deeper tone, it will seem a bit forced.. almost like a newscaster or an informercal announcer. This is where most guys are resonating from. It’s natural, but this must be fixed.
    c. Chest resonator. Many times when I see an HB, my physiology reacts, and I begin to hold in my breath. My breath is held in the upper chest. All the air is in that upper area, and I stifle the full quality and range of my voice. I think a lot of us do this. If you are in this area, you are not relaxed. You want your deep, booming voice to come from a place where you are relaxed, as this will be congruent with your body language. Now, try to resonate your voice downwards so that it vibrates from your sternum. Your sternum is that vulnerable place center and downwards from your pecs and above your ab muscles. Say “ohhhh? to find this resonator.
    d. Gutteral resonance. Okay, here we are: the Alpha resonator. Stand with your legs at shoulder width apart, and resonate the word “uhhhh? until you find it resonating from your lower belly, or your gut (guttural). You will find it to be much deeper than the others, and in fact, you will have to take a deeper, more relaxed breath to access this. You should be able to feel it resonate in your upper groin, and through your anus as well. It should feel good. In fact, when having sex, when you resonate your moaning from here, it increases the experience. Many tantra experts advocate this. As this is the place where you should be talking from, you will notice no strain on your throat, your adam’s apple is centered, and you feel more relaxed. As well, you will notice that your lower belly will stick out somewhat. Notice how guys like Pavorotti are fat? His resonator is huuuuuge. Most operatic singers do NOT work their abs, as those tight muscles are too tight and inflexible to access this resonator. This also might seem conflicting with your Alpha body posture, but you will find that it flows with the curvature of your spine.
    Okay, great, now that we’ve located this, it’s time to sustain it. Your voice is built up with muscles, and as a lot of guys here go to the gym to work their biceps and pecs, you need to build these muscles as well on a day-by-day process. When I’m doing any performance, including call a chick on the phone, or going out to a club, I do a thrity minute routine to locate my voice and to center and relax myself. I don’t have the time to give you my entire workout right now, but I will concentrate this small tutorial with the basic exercises that you will need to obtain, maintain and sustain the Alpha Male Resonator.
    2. “Glottals Times Three : Ed Is An Odd Egg Up On An Eve?
    Okay, you see that weird phrase up there that starts with “Ed? ? I want you to only use the vowels in each word. Sustain this sound, and resonate it three times, stopping briefly between each sound. Huh? I’ll demonstrate:
    a. “Ed? would be said as: “Ehhhh… Ehhhh… Ehhhhhh?. Make sure you feel your belly resonating. Do not take an inhale between each one. Do it all on one breath, pausing briefly between each one, and sustaining the breath in the same position. Some of you may notice you are jutting your belly out, and your sound comes out choppy or forced. Keep doing this until it comes out smoothly, almost like a song.
    b. “Is? would be “Ihhh… Ihh… Ihhhhhhh?. Remember to sustain the last one longer than the first two.
    c. “An? : This is what is called a “flat? a, as in “Apple? or “Aveue,? or “Alpha?. It is not the same “A? sound as “Apartment?, “Always? or “Also?. You notice this because as you watch the formation of your mouth you will see the shape inside your mind’s eye changes. Try it. Feel where your mouth changes inside.
    d. “Odd? This vowel sound sounds like “Awe?. Like the ‘o’ in God. You will see it’s easy to access the lower resonators here. Try this sound, as well as the “O? sound in words like “Owe? and “Over?.
    e. “Up? This sound is “Uhh.. uhhh.. uhhhhhhhhhh?.
    f. “An?. Notice this vowel sound? It’s the exact opposite as the one I spoke about in ‘c.’
    g. ‘Eve’ – (the stage name of my ex-girlfriend who’s a stripper.. hehe). Notice this “E? sound to be totally different from the ‘E’ sound in ‘Ed’. This resonator will resonate higher, more like in the chest.
    As it is important to access the Alpha male resonator, try ALL of these in ALL of resonators. This is because in order to tell an interesting story, you need to use all sorts of different tonalities. As you begin to repeat these exercises on a daily basis, you will notice your higher resonating areas will begin to vibrate and resonate more loudly.
    Let me just clear up something: Projecting your voice does not mean yelling. Amateur actors do this. When you go to the theatre, the actors are not yelling at each other, but they are speaking in a hightened voice so all can hear. As long as your voice resonates , you will not have to worry about yelling. The resonation takes care of this for you. It’s like when an AFC driving his car by you booming his loud music. What do you hear when he drives off in the distance? The bass. Why is that? Most sound engineers and muisicians will tell you that bass travels farther than all other sounds because it vibrates through the ground. When my parents used to come into my room to tell me to lower my music, I wouldn’t actually lower the volume. I’d just lower the bass, and they wouldn’t complain again.
    The goal here is to plug the ‘bass’ into ALL of your resonators so you can be heard clearly, and conscisely. As well, when doing your phone game, you will be astounded at how many girls will get turned on by your phone voice. I have f-closed so many girls over the phone over the years that I can’t even count them anymore. This makes it so much easier to f-close them in real life, because they’ve already pictured doing this with you.
    Have fun, practice these, and above all, let me know how it’s going and if you need more clarification. I will post more exercises in the coming days/weeks as you master these. Some of these will blow your minds at how effective they are.
    All the best.

    Will all host audio for free for rather extended periods of time.
    If you'd like to make an audio file they will be great for hosting otherwise i'm sure there are many people here including me whom would relinquish some bandwidth if they could for the files.
    Great post, good luck y'all.

  11. Awesome post. I can't seem to be able to find this though:
    you should be able to feel it resonate in your upper groin, and through your anus as well.
    Can't find that, let alone sustain it. Any help?
    I can't seem to locate the voice you propose, the one that resonates in the stomach, anus, etc.... I'm stuck with a voice that resonates in the chest right now.
    Any clarification?
    Thanks in advance.

    Try saying the words 'Honey' 'Love' and ' Samba' holding the UHHHH and AHHHH sounds as long as you can. Repeat each word several times, sustaining that tone for as long as you can before finishing the word. Next, do the same excercise laying on your back, lifting your head off the ground a bit may help. Feel it resonate in your belly and slowly move downward. Now stand back up and repeat the first excercise.
    Do this once a day for a week and you WILL notice results and gain a stronger sense of body and vocal control.

    Awesome post. I am a professional musician/singer, and here is another resource you can check out in addition to what dudemtl listed-- There is a book called "Set Your Voice Free" by a guy named Roger Love. There is a CD in the book w/ various exercises you do along w/ the CD. They are musical in nature, so if you are a non-musician it will take a bit to follow along...but just do the exercises, you'll get them.
    This is the guy who was giving Tony Robbins voice lessons (in addition to many top singers). As w/ any of these exercises, they take practice and time, but you can do it for as little as 10 min/day and notice results. If you are in your car fairly often that is a great place to do it.

  16. That was a totally sweet post, however I have just one question.
    I'm new to clubs and the problem i'm having is that my voice is naturally pretty deep, so when I talk my words seem to just get lost in the bass of the club music. Since it's really loud in there, the best way i've found to combat this is to talk at a higher pitch, instead of a lower pitch. Am I doing something wrong?

    Speak at your natural voice but project more, open your throat, pusj wing your abdominals and force the air through your stomach and your chest. If it's reall too, TOO loud. Try to bounce the set to a more quiet area, VIP area's are usually more quiet, outdoors are nice breaks from the club interiors and as a rule of thumb, the farther from the dancefloor, the better.
    As a side note, It's important to try and not repeat yourself, it just comes of as needy. If they can't hear you, pretend like they did and move on.

    Good stuff, Dudemtl.
    One of my old voice teachers always spoke with resonance. He was just a baritone, but most people thought he was a bass 2--they confused a booming voice with a deep one.
    I'd like to add a couple of things on the subject of breathing...
    Folks,
    You might hear that really good breathing comes from diaphragm, or the stomach area...This is true, but don't just stick out your belly every time you breathe in. With a good inhalation, you'll feel the air pushing out of your back as well as your stomach, and possibly some downward pressure.
    Also, don't breathe in too deeply, or you'll ironically run out of air. It forces you to tense up to hold all the air in; otherwise it all rushes out. Take moderate, comfortable breaths. You can't be completely relaxed, or you'll have no power. But don't tense up too much, or you'll strain your voice and limit your range.
    And one last thing...I got this great analogy for breathing from a yoga instructor. She says, it's like a glass of water--it fills from the bottom up and empties from the top down.
    Keep breathin,
    MagicFeet

    best of is not for questions

  30. Bump.
    Having major issues with my voice. Even in daytime out on the street, I'm really struggling to use it right, to the point where I loose presence in conversations because I have to concentrate so hard on just projecting any voice at all. Did a search on vocal projection. I find it frustrating that pretty much all posts tell you to project your voice from your chest, but not HOW you LEARN to do it. I have many talents, but vocal projection is not one of them. So, I was excited to find this post, but only before noticing it was nearly unreadable with all the weird symbols.

    ‘c.’ doesn't make sense to me Feel free to fill in the most important "blanks" if you know what would be correct!

    Maybe try recording yourself and playing it back? That helped me a lot.
