Singing from the heart

"Dear friends. Regularly i do not take any moment to write reviews BUT this is NOT a regular training video.
I do own many guitar training videos and lately some more about recording and they all show you the technical stuff you need to learn. What sets this one apart is that you will learn how to sing from your heart.
Singing from the heart is possibly on e of the most difficult task to develop because normally we are not "connected to it" in a musical way.
Since the video start, this woman talks to you with a smile and refers to you honestly an as a friend making the learning very easy and simple. Once you get to know your heart, you got it made.
In short, Singing the Blues?. This is your first and last training video!. Fell free to throw away everything else you had bought."
Not what I'd hoped for

"I bought this in hopes of how o become a "screaming" blues singer. It does not really address your voce or voice development per se, but rather on how to get a message across. There is a smidgeon on "the growl" but not much. I haven't yet found what I am looking for, but this is not it. I found the title a little misleading since it doesn't teach you HOW to sing. Also the songs it uses are old blues tunes like Stagger Lee, etc. Its message is important in making songs more effective, but just not in developing a contemporary blues voice."
She's one cool lady!

"This is not a vocal training video. It is a tutorial on singing with soul... on really being aware of what you're singing about. There are many who could use this type of insight."
