    Hi !

    So I'll keep it short but basically , I have an audition next week for a solo and its for the solo bit of joyful joful. In a non boastful way, I am good at singing and thats not the iissue exactly but i can't get the riffs and frills into my head to learn it . Does anyone have these problems? how do you combat this ?

    Thanks x

    Hey hey! I'm not a pro at all, but I've trained for years so I might be able to help. When you say you can't get the riffs into your head, I don't quite know whether you mean in terms of remembering them or getting them into your 'head-voice'.... So I'll answer for both... In terms of remembering, the best thing you can do is learn it in chunks. For example, you don't probably remember your phone number as a load of individual digits, but as a few sets of numbers (eg 07571-847-583 rather than 0-7-5-7-1-8-4-7-5-8-3. Disclaimer: This is NOT my number!). So, do the same thing with the notes of the riffs. For a prime example of this, I'd recommend watching 'Breaking Down The Riffs' on YouTube. In terms of getting them into your 'head-voice', it's really a game of practise. Getting someone that understands the 'mechanics' of the voice (eg a teacher) to help you is a very good idea. It's good that you're working on this as, unfortunately, unless the singer has a very good ear for tuning, riffs that are guessed sound a bit pants! Good luck with your audition.

    Just sing it over and over again :lol:

    If I'm trying to learn a song I'll just play it over and over again and sing along all the time - when I'm at home, in the car, walking around, at school...
