As for singing you need to get comfortable with your own voice otherwise you'll be hopeless on stage. It's ok to be self conscious about your own voice, but sometimes you just need to go with what others say.. If you still don't think you have.. See a singing teacher at your school or something, see what they say.

When it comes to screaming.. You have to try it out, see what you can produce and then come back here and go to the screaming topic that's been made a sticky. Through out the mass of pages there are loads of tips and techniques that help to create a good scream.. It helped me, so hopefully you'll find it useful also.

Get drunk with your band, get in front of a mic and let it go haha. If you are too self concious to try something, alcohol is a tool to give it the first push.

I am my band's vocalist.
I discovered my voice when I was drunk, and I remember everything when I'm drunk. The next morning I was like, "Whoa!"
Fortunately, it was in front of people who I cannot humiliate myself in front of. I don't know if you have that, fr0g.
Learn to shout and put in effort from your lungs first, would be my advice.

I've got to work on my Cookie Monster voice now. It's a bit quiet, unless it is normally. Sorry if any of you are offended by that term, Cookie Monster, I've heard some are.

I don't know what cookie moster vocals are. Actually sounds kinda retarded.


For starters, you should stop listening to nu-metal, and try some nile or cannibal corpse.

P.S.

Read the forum and you'll get your answers about 20 times.

Apparently cookie monster vocals is a nu-metal freaks way of describing REAL metal vocals. (I think it scares them or something....) A guy i work with says that all the time whenever he hears me listening to my music.

Well if you cant sing (do vocals) then wouldnt that be like someone who's never played guitar before, going and playing for a band? It just doesnt make sense now does it? No. I do suggest getting drunk. I started off doing vocals after getting drunk every night, and me and the ACTUAL vocalist of the band ended up doing half-and-half. I cant sing worth a fuck if im not drunk, but gimme some beer and i'll record a whole fuckin album. Its all about confidence. Your voice is as powerful as your mind will make it.

now the whole point of what i just said, is that once you KNOW you can sing, and be confident about it, then you can do it. Simple as that. If you have to drink your face off for the first year like i did, do it. Worked for me, might or might not for you.

I feel so uncool, having sat down at the piano and simply playing note by note and "sung" along until an approximate untiy between voice and instrument was achieved. And singing ballads with an accoustic at parties, where, granted, some limited amount of alcohol might have slipped in.
