The following links will open doors to a wealth of loops, drum hits, acoustic, electric and just plain weird audio samples.

Singing Exercises to Improve Vocal Control

Some singers have a problem with the middle range of the scales when singing from high notes to low notes, crossing what is known as a “bridge” or a “breaking point.” This can come across as breathlessness, croaky or out of tune. With appropriate singing lessons, this problem can be eradicated.
