Vocal technique, exercises, tips and relevant resources

Are you a beginner or advanced singer?

If you’re looking to sing like Rod Stewart, there are a few things that you should keep in mind. When it comes to Rod Stewart’s unique vocal style, his rough and soulful sound is what sets him apart from other singers.

One key technique that Rod utilizes in his singing is raspiness. This can be achieved by slightly constricting your vocal cords and exhaling air forcefully while singing. While you don't want to overdo it, adding a bit of raspiness to your singing can add some depth and character to your voice.

Another technique is to utilize a bit of gravelly edge, which can be achieved by adding a touch of vocal fry to your voice. Again, be careful not to overdo it, but incorporating some gravelly edge to your singing can make it unique and memorable.

When it comes to Rod Stewart's song choices, one standout is the classic "Maggie May." Pay attention to his use of inflection and the way he emphasizes certain notes to really make the song come to life. Another great song to study is "Every Picture Tells A Story," which showcases Rod's raw, emotive style.

In your quest to sing like Rod Stewart, be sure to take advantage of Singing Carrots' resources. Take the vocal range test to help determine where your voice falls, and use the pitch accuracy test to work on your accuracy. The Vocal Pitch Monitor is a great tool to help improve your pitch, and the pitch training exercises can help you increase your range and agility.

Don't forget to work on your breath support as well, which can help you sustain longer notes and achieve more consistent resonance while singing. Check out the breathing basics and breath support articles for some helpful tips.

Singing with intuition, skills, emotion and thinking is also important. Be confident and expressive while singing.

So go ahead and channel your inner Rod Stewart with these techniques and Singing Carrots' resources at your disposal. With practice and dedication, you too can master his unique vocal style and make it your own.
