Some Helpful Links and Free Information...


RIFFING + MUSICALITY:

BREAKING DOWN THE RIFFS

Wanna do some riff training? There's not much that can beat the fun of Natalie Weiss' breaking down the riffs series.

VOCAL ANATOMY:

MAL WEBB's LARYNGOSCOPY

I thoroughly recommend this as an entertaining introduction to what the vocal folds and surrounds actually look like. Check through some of Mal's other entertaining videos while you're there.

LIONS VOICE CLINIC

More intense and pithy, this one is a helpful introduction to vocal anatomy and physiology.

ANATOMYZONE YOUTUBE SERIES

So this is only for those who want to get super nerdy, but it's very helpful if you're trying to get a feel for what the cartilages and muscles of the larynx actually look like, from a 3D perspective.
