    1 - About The Author My name is Rudy Haynes. Im a 32 year old straight male

    from Chicago, Illinois. Im not a doctor or voice specialist

    Im simply a normal guy who was sick of his pathetic high

    pitched voice, but decided to do something about it. And I

    did!

    I was probably in the exact same situation as your currently

    are, and I decided that I wasnt going to let it ruing my life

    any longer. Now I want to share what I learned with you, so

    you dont have to suffer any longer.

    I am going to tell you all of the exact techniques I used to

    transform my voice, and am confident that if you follow

    them diligently you will be amazed at the results.

    Now here is a little more about my story

    Growing up, I was always teased. Perhaps it was the

    combination of my scrawny body, or my meager high-

    pitched voice. It never really bothered me until I hit puberty,

    because I had a couple of good buddies throughout high

    school my problem was with the ladies.

    There was this one girl, though, let's call her "Courtney," and

    for some wild reason, she took a liking towards me in my

    senior year. I don't know if it was because she pitied me for

    being the kid in Mr. Czudner's math class who constantly

    had spit balls blown at the back of his head with a straw, but

    the day Courtney sat behind me, was the day God answered

    my prayers. Sort of...

    Courtney and I started talking, and eventually she asked me

    if I could tutor her in algebra. I really got to know her when

    she started periodically calling me whenever her and her

    boyfriend were in argument. We'd talk for hours on end.

    When she and her boyfriend broke up during the springtime,

    my buddy Carl managed to convince me to work up the

    courage to ask her to prom. He used the reasoning that if I

    didn't ask, I'd always regret it, and I would never get laid,

    which I guess, in retrospect, was pretty good reasoning.

    So Courtney said yes, and I thought, "Sweet. Maybe this

    chick actually digs me!" Oh, and she liked me, alright like a

    brother. That's probably the worst compliment you can get

    from a girl you're crushing on. When I finally grew the guts

    to kiss her at the end of the night, she was literally appalled.

    But here's the best part: she thought I was gay. Gay. I was

    shocked and humiliated. I mustered up the words to ask her

    why, and she said something along the lines of, "You sort of

    talk like you are... your voice is really high-pitched."

    And there it is. My breakthrough. A blessing in disguise. That

    summer before I took off for college, I knew I had to make a

    change. I wanted a deeper voice.

    Someone had suggested performing certain neck and voice

    exercises in order to achieve a deeper voice. After a few days

  • 5

    www.deepvoicemastery.com

    of exercising my neck muscles, my neck looked noticeably

    thicker. I always thought I had a bad case of pencil neck, so a

    thicker neck boosted my self-confidence and gave me the

    motivation I needed to work on the rest of my body.

    After about a week, I woke up to a nice, deep, masculine

    voice one morning. My voice felt powerful, and nearly lasted

    all day, until my old, squeaky voice crept back throughout

    the evening. By day's end, my voice was disappointingly back

    to normal. Nevertheless, I kept up the exercises and about

    two days later, the deep, crisp voice returned. I was

    determined to keep the depth this time, so I used my voice

    sparingly. It held.

    I was careful at first. I was conscious of my posture, and

    talked with a measured response around people until my

    deep voice became second nature. I practiced everyday,

    morning and night talking to myself in a deep, loud voice

    while shaving, getting dressed, making food, and so on.

    Remembering to keep good posture really aided the

    transition from my high-pitched, squeaky voice to my new

    deep, masculine voice. It was a constant cue in my memory

    to access the low voice that I desired and had perfected

    through much practice.

    If you can relate to my experience, you too, can have a deeper

    voice. There is hope. I can guarantee you that if you do the

    exercises outlined in this ebook, drink plenty of water, and

    practice, your body will learn to adapt to a deeper voice.

    My deep voice gave me the confidence I needed. I went off to

    college as a man, not the boy I once was, and let me tell you

    my new found confidence and hard work paid off in the

    female department.

    2 - Introduction

    What defines a man? (Aside from the biological factor

    thats not much of a secret)

    www.deepvoicemastery.com

    In todays society, being a man can be tough. The web of

    stereotypes the media has sewn has clouded society, and the

    pressures of the past and present have collided, blurring our

    view of masculinity. Nowadays, it is not unusual to have a

    man stay at home while his wife goes off to work, or to come

    across a man that enjoys being in the kitchen; some

    professions are no longer female dominated, such as

    teachers and nurses. But with no clear definition of

    masculinity, the only characteristics that define a man are

    physical attributes characteristics that not all men are

    blessed with due to a little thing we call genetics.

    You wish you were a little bit taller. You wish your physique

    were more toned and muscular. You wish your voice were

    deeper. This is where the media has constructed a physical

    fallacy of the ideal male. You may not be able to change

    your height, or your bone structure, but there is one thing

    you can change, and that is your voice. For whatever reason,

    whether youre trying to attract the woman of your dreams,

    or impress a boss at work a deep voice can help you

    achieve your goal. Because if you can deliver a deep, clear,

    masculine voice, you may not need to worry about all the

    other expectations that are placed on the male gender. If you

    can talk the talk, you can walk the walk.

    3 - Anatomy

    A weak voice is not the result of a small voice box, or tiny

    vocal chords. The vocal chords are a muscle group, and like

    any other muscle in our body, they have the ability to stretch,

    grow and strengthen. The vocal chords are responsible for

    the tone and pitch a person speaks. They form the raw

    sound, while the mouth and tongue form each specific word.

    Conditioning the vocal chords to become relaxed and supple

    is the secret to getting the deep, masculine voice that youve

    always wanted.

    If your voice box is stressed, the muscles are too tight

    causing your voice to have a higher pitch. The key is to train

    www.deepvoicemastery.com

    your vocal chords to be loose and supple, in order to produce

    lower and deeper tones.

    Try it yourself: Create a humming sound. Notice the sound

    change as you tilt your head up, and then tilt it down with

    your chin close to your chest.

    The results indicate that as you tilt your head up, the

    humming has a higher pitch, and once you tilt your head

    down, the humming has a much lower sound. The reasoning

    is simple: when you tilt your head up, you are stretching the

    vocal chords, tightening them. This test proves that if your

    vocal chords are tight, they cannot produce a deep, low voice.

    KeyPoints: The vocal chords are a muscle group that is responsible

    for the pitch and tone of our voice.

    When vocal chords are tense, they will produce a voice

    with a higher pitch.

    In order to produce a deep, low, masculine voice, the

    vocal chords must be relaxed and limber.

    4 - How to Achieve a Deep Voice: Step 1

    Heres the meat of it people what you really want to hear,

    so pay close attention.

    Here we go

    What happens when we develop and tone a muscle? Thats

    right, the muscle itself becomes thicker and enlarged. A

    strong muscle is able to do more work with less effort. If we

    strengthen our neck muscles, the vocal chords are able to

    relax within the toned group of muscles, holding up our neck

    and head.

    As an example, a pot belly occurs when the abdominal wall

    is not strong enough to hold in your stomach. In order to get

    rid of it, you have to strengthen the abdominal muscles.

    Lets say you did sit-ups everyday for one month you would

    definitely have more defined, toned abs as a result. Even if
