What have you learnt from Yodelers?

"If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Knowing yodeling but never uttering one 'odel-ay-HEE-hoo'..
Then, you will be a Man, my son!"

Yodeling, IMO, is an acquired taste.

I certainly, as a singer, admire anyone who can do it well.

My favorite yodeler, was Hank Williams Sr.

He used it as an effect.

And, did it well, without going over the top.

But, Hank was a great singer, with taste and style.

(Hank was, well... Hank Williams.)

I like Grand Ol Opry enough and have tried a few yodeling licks for a laugh but am not a fan.
I also have Norse blood mostly from Germany so I suppose...

But what I learned I guess is that high falsetto is cool, or cooler than yodeling at least.
I have a fairly wide range in my singing voice and a good number of actual humans in full control of their free will have tolerated my high falsetto singing. Women seem to be more tolerant of it, and some are even attracted to it.
Go figure.

Anyhoo hee hoo; yodeling and falsetto use some of the same techniques, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

(No, those pics of a little kid in lederhosen are not me)
