The Mustaine snarl...

I've always been a fan of David Mustaine's snarlish style of singing. I was wondering if other people here also like his vocals and if anyone can mimic his snarl. Some pointers on how to sing like him would be cool too.

It might be easier to sing like him if I was a serious burnout, but I'll pass on the hard drugs for now.

You might be able to do it by closing off your nose and kinda altering your voice in the throat, thats what i use for Alexi Laiho, could work for Mustaine

You mean clogging my nose with something or cutting off air kind of like squinting, but without actually wrinkling your nose? What I have most difficulty with is matching the pitch, I can't control my voice very well at mid-high pitches... I'm fine with high and mid, but the point in between(where Mustaine's sound lays according to my schematic) is rather tricky. I still get those teenager croaks once in a while.

Yup. His voice was very girlish on Rude Awakening.

I like to believe that I can sing like Dave, but I'm afraid the fact is I really can't without sounding... well... gay. Dave sounds great singing the way he does but he is the only one on earth that can do it.

I feel the exact same way when singing his stuff. I can't do it without sounding like I'm being raped in the ass. But Dave Mustaine does it with balls.

If I were a chick, I would totally fuck Dave.

I have grown up singing Megadeth, but I can only sound good while singing along with Dave. When I would turn the volume down completely to hear my voice I was scared to death that I could sound so gay! Dave is the only person I know that can do the ass raping.

Yeah, but he is the only person that can make them sound less gayer.

That's the thing....most of us think we sound bad...we hear ourselves diff.
Have you guys tried recording yourselves singing or judging your sound by the sounds your hear from mouth to ear?

I have a ton of Megadeth live stuff and on a good portion of it, you're right, his voice sounds weird and girly. The rest of the time he pretty much sounds like he does on the albums. Fuck if I can figure out why.

I think he focuses to much on his vocals while recording and then while live he can't completely focus on singing because he is playing at the same time. I think that kinda spreads him thin live, but none the less it is still amazing that he can still sing as well as he does and play that complex at the same time.

Dave has talent.

Just sound like your being anal-raped and want to like it even though the pain is nearly unbearable.
Seriously, Mustaine's voice sucks (in my opinion, at least). His voice is not only too high, but it is also too nasally. It's like a 5-year old brat bitching at his mommy for not getting the candybar he wanted. Dave is a perfect example of how attitude can, in some cases, make you sound extremely gay.
(I just scrolled down while typing and read more of the replies and realized all of what I said has already been said. So please, take the advice. Don't ever try to sound like that poor excuse for a metal-bashing man. Unless you sing about animals you'd like to fuck and why your wife left you for a man with a crooked penis. Then you could be a musical comedian.)

Die. Megadeth kicks ass. Mustaine has the balls to sing and play however the fuck he wants without caring about what people think of him. Even his regular speech make some doubtful of his sexuality, but he's clearly not homosexual, so quit calling everything you don't like gay, you sexually insecure child. I assume your opinion of Axl Rose's voice -or any 80's metal/rock singer's voice for that matter- isn't any different... How lame.

What a shame. I attack Dave Mustaine and you attack me. Personal attacks are just stupid on this board.
And by "gay", we mean "lame" or "dumb", not homosexual.
And dear lord. "You sexually insecure child"? Fuck. I don't even know why I'm wasting my time on this. Good holy hell. Those mods are right. This does turn into a day-care center.
And please, don't reply with more insults or pissy hissy fits. Do you not remember The Golden Rule ??
Good day.
