Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have always heard that the yodel is a relatively "pure" tone -- in the sense of open-throated, relaxed and uncovered (opera singing is "covered"). All human voices have overtones -- does covering produce more of them? Then there are the "harmonics" that give such pleasure in music. Are they the same as overtones?
