Yeah, you just need life...:rolleyes:

........so THAT's why you guys can't do it right......:rolleyes:;).....
kidding though

.. I have to agree. The only way to get good growls is to practice and practice often. You can however use something like warm tea with lemon to clear your throat and soothe your vocal cords.

GravelFistFM 2004-12-21 23:18

its like working out to a certain extent. it calls for constant work, if you take time to dink around, your hard work will go to hell. and personally i really dont want to lose my work just cuz i slack off. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. after you practice though, rest, healing is also an important aspect of making your voice sound a certain way. you dont try to do too much if your a noob. take it in steps and rest in between practice sessions so your vioce dont sound like some one drove a power drill down your throat.

this is your throat on power drill :smash: :flame: :eek: :bawling: :behead: :uzi:

Guitar_Demon. Your signature says it all.
Have you figured out How to hit the High Notes without vocal injury?

powersofterror 2005-01-03 00:47

Ya know what i've noticed? If you want to scream high....don't use falsetto...just scream...it's the same thing, but I figured out about a week ago that I can "sing" as high as the dude sings on malmsteen's alchemy album on Leonardo. If you think falsetto, you'll strain your neck and voice box by making your adam's apple go back into your neck. But if you *think* scream, you'll [literally] scream and obviously it'll be high.

Hmmm having tried that myself a while back I kinda agree. The problem is that not everyone can go as high as they want, some people have it some don't. Like for instance, I can't hit the high notes that my back up vocalist can, I just can't, I can get close and with more training get better at it, but my natural voice is somewhere in the middle, though I can go pretty deep at times.
But, I guess if you realy try just screaming it, trying to not screw up your chords while doing so ;) , you can achieve it.

i like to sing KsE, but a friend told me that the white guy was better, like more crazy. anyways KsE's singing is full of a wide spectrum of highs and lows. if you sing just highs, thats all youre gonna be able to do, if you sing all lows, the same will happen. sing everythign high and low, and in between, no matter what, u will be able to sing higher and lower than before

Norther 2005-04-03 18:36

why does it help to drink all these liquids that u guys r saying to help ur voice

The Doctor 2005-04-04 09:39

HAHAHAHA, YOU'RE SO FUNNY!!! HAHAHAHA!!!

andrewc 2005-04-04 11:57

hey does anyone know why that norther guy got more banned than a black person from the KKK?

The Doctor 2005-04-04 12:12

he was 12, somewhere it's stated that you must be over 13 to register. So he's suspended for a year.

also, he was being a total newb, retard ass making dumb threads and asking stupid questions in the wrong places

GravelFistFM 2005-04-05 09:55

anyways he prolly dont know what he was talking about anyways...

try intake for high pitches

Jamento 2005-04-20 17:47

I don't know what you're talking about with all these 'intake screams'. To me that just sounds, uh, retarded. I also think it should be noted that drinking/eating things doesnt help your voice make noises. If anything it helps your voice heal after you shred it up by screaming. I can have a vocal range where I can go as low as cannibal corpse and as high as cradle (actually a little higher, but it doesnt sound as good) The reason I think I can do this is because I have been growling/screaming along to songs from both the bands for several years.

Randy Blithe from Lamb of God does intake...try running laps around a fooball field at top speed. when u feel like ur going to pass out, gasping for breath, listen when u breath in, ur dragging air across your vocal cords in a "retarded" way. thats the only example i could think of >-< but that is "intake" growling/screaming in a way

before you can worry about getting the scratchy sound that halford or chuck make on the high notes, just worry about hitting those notes... when you hit these high notes you shouldn't use your throat at all, your entire larynx (sp?) should be completely relaxed, as well as your jaw and tongue... this allows your vocal chords to resonate freely... so you must be completely relaxed... now when you inhale, make sure you inhale properly... inhale as if you're filling up your stomach... you're really just filling up your lungs obviously, and this pushes down your diaphram into your guts and shit and pushes out the sides... once you've gotten this down you need to learn to control the air leaving by strengthening your diaphram.... just inhale and then count 1 2 3 4 5 in a comfortable singing voice until your voice strains or you run out of breath.... never suck in your stomach to keep counting... once you can reach about 25 then you're doing pretty good...
as said a few times before, singing scales helps increasing your range, but to hit those really high notes you have to have the proper mindset... most people think to hit the high notes you have to push up and reach up for those high notes, that's the wrong way of thinking.... you need to think of landing down on the notes from even higher above, and you need to think of pushing forward from behind your back... this helps the sound rise strait up from inside you and project it forward....
a good warmup exercise is to push your hands up against your cheeks and then vibrate your lips... that's the best way i can explain it... you should go through scales this way, it helps get resonance and helps you to hit higher notes easier... once you do this, then do some scales with a whiney "nay" sound and try to hit those high notes, then with the "mum" sound....
once you get good head voice and your range goes from chest voice to head voice, you need to learn to bridge the gap so your voice doesn't crack between the two registers.... i'm not very good at it, but the only thing i can say is try to reach the lower head voice notes with your chest voice and the higher chest voice notes with your head voice... this helps and with practice it can get rid of that crack between registers....
and for the scratchy vocals like halford and chuck, you gotta get that scratchy sensation from your nose, it's hard for me to explain, but that's how i can do it... you gotta just push it to your nose... if you make the noise with your throat then you'll fuck yourself up... that's about all i can really tell you right now.... if you go to www.vocalist.uk.org they have more stuff there

just go all out and trash the shit outa your voice. thats fuckin \m/ right there. dont worry about the techinal shit u cant to, just go crazy. the more u worry about being perfect the more u suck.

LuciferianSoul 2005-10-15 22:41

Eh.. I just strongly agree on the point that you do NOT need food or drink to help you sing, scream or growl. That's just bullshit. It's like saying drinking coffee makes you better at playing guitar. They are two totally irrelevant things.

Just make sure you're hydrating yourself, that's all. Else if you keep going with a really dry throat, you'll do some damage.

If drinking this or that make things harder for you, don't drink it. Just do whatever works, but remember if you are relying soley on some type of food or drink besides water to perform, you're just using it as a cruch for your crappyness. So learn to sing well without having to 'drink thick yoghurt' or 'take a swig of vodka and eat some grass' or whatever the hell else people have suggested.

And practise.

I couldn't sing more than a line when I first attempted to growl.
It just took time and practise to get better and develop my own sound.
If you lose your growling/screaming/whatever, stop for the day and wait until tomorrow to continue. Thats the point where you need to leave your throat to heal up.

SicSyco 2005-10-18 18:47

take big breaths and just push with your diaphram.

but first you'll need to exercise your diaphram and lungs to be able to handle a strenuous activity such as this.
