They say “play low to play high”. Using the relaxed open throat I can, at times, reach D flat 8va below staff. But my range is still not really improving. am I wasting time on pedal tones and should concentrate on the notes contained in the 8va above the staff?
Thanks Greg for answering my question about pedal tones. I now know why my petal C does not work. Interesting discussion by Mike about his experiences with Caruso and others he had been with. Thanks Tom
