I've always thought that falsetto is that girlish voice of mine
(pretty good sounding) which I sang with through my puberty. I can
get with it as high as I would get when I was a boy soprano. So, what
is falsetto then, if that isn't?
Still, what's the voice that for instance Carreras is using very much
singing his high pianissimo notes? Is it the normal tenor head voice
or is it a kind of lighter form of head voice?
Yes, I'm a bit confused...
