Thread Name: Sound Of Pear-Shaped Tones
Subject: RE: Sound Of Pear-Shaped Tones
Singing has a very rich visual imagery - as anyone who has tried to make head or tail of a singing lesson will know.
My 10 yr old, Amoret, complains that some notes I sing are oval-shaped and bulbous and, although very nice in themselves, don't fit in with the rest of my singing. I think the bulbous ones are probably edging toward the better quality notes.
So it looks as though Amoret would agree with the definition given by MMario.
