Tongue positions

I don’t want to write a blog, so here goes…

I found this diagram of where the back of the tongue sits when singing vowel sounds.

This is really useful. I had no idea. There are other positions too. In between etc.

That “ahh” position is the best position. Some vowel sounds can be improved by using a disguised “ahhh”. (I mean that for instance you start as”eee” but subtly move the sustained sound towards an “ahhh” then finish as “eee”).

Keeping the jaw low improves the tone of vowels. If you try both high jaw and then low jaw you can hear the difference.

SO: WHERE YOU CAN, IMPROVE A SUSTAIN BY FINDING “AHHH” POSITION

ALSO: I expect that it would be better not to overdo this.

ALSO: Used in conjunction with drinking-in it gives you much better long notes.
