When you are singing in the studio, you desperately need to move out of logical, critical, analytical left-brain mode. Why?
- Messages go deeper when understood emotionally instead of just analytically.
- Left brain singing is not as compelling as right brain singing. Think about it... which moves you more -- to hear a formulaic, even, predictable, logical voice with perfectly even rhythmic pattern or an unpredictable, slightly de-constructed voice with conversational rhythmic pattern?
- You will tend to demand over-tuning and editing of your vocals, not realizing that less is very often more when it comes to mechanically perfecting vocals.
- By trusting your vocal technique, setting yourself up properly so you can feel more than think as you sing.
- By being able to trust the feedback you're getting from your production team. This lets you enter your creative child mode and get the critic out of the vocal booth.
