Here are some tips on how to say the letter M when ventriloquizing, using your ventriloquist mask.
A. The letter M stands for Mastery. For a beginner, a simple M is a quick way to say Mastery.
B. Remember the word order (1,2,M) of your words and your order in the sentence.
C. Remember that a vowel may come before a consonant (as in Mastery), an aspirated consonant (like a “M” sound), or an onomatopoeia, such as a “Ming” sound (like a sound from the Muppets).
9. “Mack the Knife.”
“Mack the Knife” is a good way to introduce a “Mack the Knife” show. It’s a technique you can use to introduce a group of characters, characters you’ll use frequently over the show.
10. It’s like “The Muffin Man” when playing piano: you can use all the keys.
11. When you can, play the letter K when playing piano.
Here are ten more piano techniques to play around with:
12. How to play the “K” chord during the riffing pattern.
13. The key to playing the “K” chord during the riffing pattern (aka “The G” pattern) is actually the finger tapping (as opposed to the thumb tapping that’s typically used in playing guitar). You can play a G string in thirds using the chord in this pattern, but be sure you tap the “G” from the fret board. (As with picking techniques, if you’re good, you’ll be able to do this with any number of strings.)
14. If you’re playing in the key of C major, you can play the chord with the second hand and then apply the same chord structure to the first hand.
15. What’s the key to playing this riff: “The G’s.”
16. Play the “K” chord riff on a flute if you’re playing on the flute and you’re good.
17. When you are playing in the key of C minor, learn the “K” pattern using the key of C as a starting point. Then pick a note (or a major 7th chord) in the second chord (in that same key) and then play the riff again.
