Singing Style/Technique?

I have a question that I'm not even sure how to ask. I often see singers doing something with their throat while singing. They sometimes hold their throat (trachea?) with their hand while singing. I'm not sure how else to describe it, so I hope y'all know what I'm talking about. What are they doing by holding their throat?

Well here's tha thing...Pinching is okay and it does get your voice high, especially when you're doing war cries, and as long as long you don't do anything to damage youer voice like smoke or drink, you can pinch for a while but it won't be a problem...but if you continue pinching for too long, for years even, it'll strain your vocal chords & it will damage your voice. I've seen several guys who pinched who had crisp sky-high voices a few years ago, but their voices have gotten damaged. I won't name names but i have seen it happen. Just sing naturally and in time you'll have a keen singing voice.

Thanks for the explanation. That's kinda what I figured, since I've noticed it more with northern singers.

I saw YBH here at the Austin powwow a couple years ago. Good job!

Y'all ever get down to the Austin powwow anymore? Northern tradish is one of my favs. I don't think I've ever seen you dance, though. I think I would've recognized your regalia/face paint.

Dang , I was front page of the paper 2 years in a row ! LOL I love the dance , and I love to dance ! Years of smoking and poor judgement have taken their toll though. I haven't dressed out in a couple years , got fat and lazy ! Last time I tried I ran out of air pretty quick and didn't do so well. I still gourd dance but I think my "Tradish" days are over. My brain says I can , my heart and lungs say no way !

Hmmm. Then I probably have seen you. I joined pws.com in 2008 (although I lurked for quite awhile before that), so I might not have seen your avatar/pics on here yet.

I couldn't go this year 'cause I'm still in mourning for my mom, but I'm usually there every year. One year I met Nancy Jo, 2line and Sunktaki and her husband (can't remember his name). That was cool.

I've been to the powwow here so often I recognize people (or regalia) that I've never met. Last year I was sitting in the stands with some friends and found myself saying things like: "That young chicken dancer over there, he's had a big growth spurt since last year; Look at that little boy tradish dancer, this is the first year he's been able to come out with the men during grand entry, I'll bet he's so proud, he's always had to come in holding his mama's hand before now. "

I've been so often, I keep thinking I should contact the people at Great Promise to see about volunteering.
