I understand the concept of singing on pitch note for note when practicing scales but when applying this to an actual song I get lost. Take this song for example from (0:25-1:38)
The lyrics he is singing doesn't even fall on the notes of the melody so how does he know what pitches to sing? Most of the music I hear, the lyrics that the singinger is singing doesn't actually fall on the melody. I guess I'm asking what are they singing relative to? Or do I have the whole concept wrong? Pleased explain in thorough detail to me.
If you listen at (1:25) he starts holding a note; as he's holding the note though different pitches are being played of the melody so what pitch is he looking to match? Because he cant be singing each note of the melody if he's holding aIs his voice sliding from pitch to pitch as he holds the note?? What is that I'm missing this running me crazy!!!!!!!! Please help!!!!!!!!
