Goo Goo Goo Long Scale Exercise Demo

The GOO exercise builds strength and power into the head voice and vocal muscles, and helps create a seamless transition between chest and head voice by evening out your vocal tone. Tips to make this exercise most effective:

  • Keep your lips narrow and puckered, like you’re blowing a kiss. The narrow “OO” vowel will help pull you towards a pure head voice tone.
  • Keep the “OO” sound hooty and owl-like.
  • Hammer out the “G” consonant in order to close and give grip to the vocal cords.
  • As you move up in each scale, feel the resonance tilt fully into the head cavity, then tilt back down into a “sweet” chest voice tone as you come back down.
  • Do not just sing the whole scale in head voice, as you will not have enough presence in the lower notes of the scale.
  • Make sure the tone is clear, not breathy.
  • Do not sing the bottom notes of the scale in a hard, full-sounding chest voice tone— otherwise your voice will flip in the middle of the scale. Instead, keep your low notes light and sweet-sounding, in order to “match” the tone and coordination of your head voice as much as possible. This helps to balance the voice and smooth out the transition between chest and head.
