I listen to a lot of Iron Maiden, who have Bruce Dickinson at the helm, doing vocals. This man has pipes! He has a signature (somewhat exaggerated) vibrato, which I actually really like. The other signature quality is his effortless mixing ability. He can move in and out of mix completely seamlessly. Basically, I want to be able to do this, because I can reach all the notes and without strain. Now here is my problem:
I can reach all the notes, but I must use head voice a lot and consequently my vocal break can be heard and is very noticeable.
What irritates and frustrates the hell out of me is that I am 100% sure I can do this because I sort of found my mix for about 8 seconds (LOL), after which I lost it again. I have accidentally, so to speak, found it over my time singing for fun. What I think I tried to do was imagine I was pulling the note from behind my throat (or larynx) and pulling it upward and around my larynx, and it worked so that I could reach the note I wanted very easily and with good (chest-like) resonance, where usually I would be in head voice.
The song I was sing was "Infinite Dreams" by Iron Maiden. The note is roughly the notes around 1:05 onward really. ()
This song would basically be entirely in my break area (LOL). I would have to mix, like him.
I've watched a LOT of videos on how to find the mix but they don't work for me (at least not practically, during actual singing).
Do you guys know where I should feel resonance most dominantly or any sensations I should feel when moving into mix, and more importantly: how can I transition my larynx from the relaxed/neutral position where I would normally sing in chest, to the position, tilt etc where I am mixing the registers?
