想唱異性的歌要怎麼調key?

As Hongkongers, Karaoke is the way we express ourselves with all our raw emotion and suppressed fiery passion. Very often, we want to sing the song of the opposite sex. But the physical difference between a male and a female’s vocal cord renders it difficult to sing these song in their original key.

There are several common problems for people who want to sing the song of the opposite sex. For female singers, they are usually comfortable to sing a male song’s high pitch part, yet struggle to sing the normal pitch part. For male singers, it is usually the case that the normal pitch part is too high to start with, and the chorus or the high pitch part of a female song impossible to sing.

Adjusting the key

So how do adjust the song’s key if a male want to sing a female song? We could calculate the suggested key adjustment based on the difference of comfortable pitch range between male and female. Since Male’s comfortable range and Female’s comfortable range are approximately apart for approximately 5 keys, when singing a male song, girls could raise the song pitch by 5 keys. Conversely, male singer could lower a female song by 5 keys to suit for their comfortable vocal range.

Here are two extra factors that you should consider when adjusting the key.

1. Inability to sing high notes

If you are not familiar with the correct method to sing high notes, you might adjust your key downwards. If you are good at singing high notes, you may raise the key to challenge yourself and train to wider your range.

2. The original song is already low in key

If the original song is already low in key or does not contain high notes for typical male voice, male singer might choose to raise the key and female singer might raise more than 5 keys to compensate for the lack of high notes.

想唱異性的歌要怎麼調key?

相信很多人去KTV都會點原唱是異性的歌。但是可能會很困擾,怎麼調都調不到適合自己的KEY。今天就要教大家怎樣調KEY。

什麼是KEY呢?

想像眼前有個鋼琴。白鍵的音名依序為CDEFGAB再回到C。白鍵之間還有黑鍵。每個鍵之間的距離叫半音。兩個鍵之間的距離稱作全音。以【全全半全全全半】排列的一串音高就稱作大調音階。以不同的音為第一顆音就是不同的大調音階。

比如說,以C為第一顆音就是C大調音階。第一個C到下一個C,總共有12個不同的音可以當作第一顆音(C,C#,D,D#,E,F,F#,G,G#,A,A#,B)。因此也會有12個不同的大調音階。

而當我們說某一首歌是C大調(C KEY)的時候,意思是這首歌旋律的大部分的音,都是有C大調音階裡的音排列而組成。一首個可以有12個調,也就是12個KEY。

我們所說的1個KEY就等於一個半音。也就是說你可以將升一個KEY說成升一個半音。但是,是沒有【升半個KEY】這一回事的。

男女的混聲區

大部分男生的混聲區是在鋼琴中央的E,F,F#,G這一個區域。而大部分女生的混聲區則是在比男生高一點的A,A#,B,C的區域。幾乎所有歌曲在副歌的時侯,都會唱到男生和女生各自的混聲區。因為唱到混聲區歌曲才會聽起來比較激昂。但因為男生的混聲區是比較低的,所以大部分女生唱男生的歌,即使到了副歌通常還是很輕鬆,但同時也會聽起來比較無聊。

而相對的,男生在唱女生的歌的時候,就會覺得很高,可能還沒進到副歌就一直唱到男生的混聲區,唱得很辛苦。還有一個情況,就是男生唱女生歌時,會低了整整一個八度。

調KEY

那男生唱女生的歌時要怎樣調KEY呢?其實我們可以直接以混聲區的位置來推算。大部分男生開始進入混聲區的位置是E。大部分女生開始進入混聲區的位置是A。這雨個音的距離是5個半音。

所以當女生想唱男生的歌時就可以升5個KEY。相反地,男生想要唱女生的歌時就可以降5個KEY。

以下幾個因素也會影響大家升降KEY的數量。

1:對混聲區不熟悉

如果你對於混聲區要怎樣唱還不太熟悉,常常感到唱高音會吃力的話,女生可以不要升到5個KEY,男生也可以降超過5個KEY。相反,如果你較擅長唱高音,女生可以升超過5個KEY,男生可以不要降到5個KEY。

2:原曲較高或較低

如果男性唱的歌曲整體較低,甚至沒有進入男性的混聲區。那男生便可以選擇升KEY唱,而女生更可以升不止5個KEY。
