Peeps attempting 'Da Hoochin'
This works best if you have had a bad cough. Just cough, but say “oooooo” as you are coughing. This gives the basic sound and will train your larynx into the correct projection.
Possibly less offensive and painful than Method 1:
a) Say “who” as in “who is that?”
b) Now remember the last time you stood on your cats tail? It made a “Hchhhhhh” sound. That’s the one. Draw your lips back over your teeth and pass air (outwardly) over the back of your tongue. Practice this until you can make a consistant sound.
c) Now say “who” followed by “Hchhhh” taking a breath between each enounciation. Practice for 5 mins.
d) Now try to say “who” followed by “hchhh” without taking the breath between. Practice.
e) Finally run the word together and hey presto “hooch.” Practise lots until you can scream it spontaneously without thinking about it….you will need to be able to do this during dancing. You can’t stop in the middle of an Eightsome Reel to think about shouting “hooch.”
