There’s an old bluegrass joke that goes something like this:
Question: How does a bluegrass singer warm up?
Answer: He clears his throat.
The implication here is that bluegrass singing doesn’t require much warming up at all, but that isn’t the greatest plan if you want to deliver your best sound. Your voice is an instrument after all, and as any musician knows – you don’t just want to jump right into a performance without warming up. Also ask any great athelete about the importance of stretching… you’ll find it’s a similar concept, warming up is essential!
So what should you do to warm up your voice? Luckily we have Michael Daves on board to show us how to sing bluegrass like a pro.
