  2. I worked on Dio’s crew. That man was loud!! Sometimes when we there were several acts on the bill, Ronnie did his soundcheck last. They always had to pull his vocals back. And effortless. I definitely go with mutant. And unlike some singers he got better the longer he was on tour. They sometimes booked him 4 nights in a row. You don’t see that with other acts.

  4. I agree that the AC DC ones were good, I mean that it's a different type of beast. A lil more held back with distortion all the time works on AC DC, on GnR it just doesn't... And its the all out GnR high sound that he just can't pull anymore apparently.

  5. really? hmmm. Everything I heard (video) of his acdc performances I thought were pretty good. Maybe I just missed the footage you've seen. I don't follow G's&R's so.... anyway, the weak falsettoish singing is just lame.

  6. Part of the issue is that Guns n Roses vocals are much more aggressive than AC/DC and they extend over wider range, more sustain, etc. I just never heard Axl usingg his trademark raw scream after the 90s... he tries but something is always off, gets super thin and falls apart...

  7. Pretty simple. Compressed Overlay Distortion. Squeeze like hell in the head voice until you create so much noise in the upper vocal tract that you have distortion. Effective, but hella fatiguing and if you are not doing other things properly in your technique, it can destroy your voice. This performance is awful. It is the head voice he used to use, without the compressed overlay, resulting in essentially, falsetto. Why he can't squeeze the hell out of it like he used to back in the day at least for one night, IDK. Training for this technique is found HERE:

  8. Don't worry . Be patient. Did you find your vocal range? If you didn't you should do it and it's completely normal to be unable to sing the notes that are out of your range. You should transfer song to your vocal range or practice to extend your range. And everyone use relative pitch to sing. There are really few people who have perfect pitch and are kind of musical geniuses. I think you're just doing fine.

  10. I got news from @Robert Lunte that our friend and team member Adolph Namlik passed away earlier this month... This is sad news and I feel we should do something in his memory, perhaps a song with everyone adding their voices, or perhaps those who want to record something on their own could send it too. I will be recording a song if anyone wants to help or collab doing something please let me know. Felipe

  15. [Short Premise] I am not big on singing or any music for that matter (wasn't encouraged in my family) So when I was told to shut up when I sang at home or school at 13/14 y.o I just had the burnt thought that my voice simply is bad and I was fine with it. I picked up guitar a year ago (now 23 y.o) and was once singing with a low voice alone and a friend said 'hey, your voice is not that bad' which got me thinking on whether it is at least average or if they were just flattering me. I do not wish to go pro or anything, I just want to know if with my current voice, practice will get me somewhere

    John Prine RIP

    I learned how to play guitar mostly from learning some of Johns songs, Jim Croce and James Taylor. The songs are simple enough to figure out yourself and interesting enough that you can play them over and over again without getting bored. Plus, if you are singing a song that makes people laugh you can get away with not sounding too good. Either John's sense of humor is similar to mine or l gained my sense of humor by listening to him. Lyrics like " I knew a girl that was almost a lady" and "she won't let me live with her, and she makes me live in my head", helps to give you a new w

    John Prine RIP

    It is sad to say and hear that we have lost another great singer, songwriter and friend. John Prine passed do to complications of the corona virus. John was not in the greatest of health to begin with and the added stress of the virus became too much for his body to handle. If you have heard John singing you may wonder why he would be brought up in a Vocalists forum. From a singers standpoint he was not the best of singers and his voice did not have any special characteristics. His songs are simple, uncomplicated and lack any technical flare. When he sings and writes it is as if he we

    RIP Adolph Namlik

    Dust in the Wind is a good choice. Sometimes we get to thinking "There is always tomorrow" but tomorrow may be too late to let friends know how we feel about them. Adolph had been on my mind and many times I started to send a message just to say hello, then, maybe tomorrow will be a better time. I talk to other people about my friends on the forum. I do consider all of you friends. Seeing eye to eye is not what friendship is. It is about being able to not see eye to eye and still want to be a part of the community and the conversations. I will try to add what I can.

  26. One thing that slips the mind these days is that people expect or want instant satisfaction. Record one or two takes of a song and manipulate the bad parts with electronics. In the old days of recording on two tracks, the band would play along with the vocalist and background singers and there would be a marathon recording of one song with 60 to 80 different recordings. Throughout the recording process they would keep what sounded good and discard what sounded bad refining the song as you recorded. Sometimes in the final product they would splice pieces of several recordings into one master. T

  27. Sup, I like the intensity, that's on the right track! So here is what I heard right on the start "A heart on the run" it does not sound very secure, you are sliding to the pitch of the first note, and it is sounding a bit nasal. I would try to make it more clear, articulate the words a bit better, and on the first vowel on heart, try to round it a bit more, a small bit of a yawn might get it darkened and more full sounding. The next point that is rather important is on "raged", it sounds like you were trying to go powerful there, but it didn't quite happen as you intended, try playin

  28. I have never heard the song before, and that is good because I do not have to compare you to the original singer. The songs sounds good to me and I like the tone of your voice. I did not hear any pitch problems. Your voice sounds good and it does have an interesting sound. What makes a voice interesting is how a song is presented and the feeling expressed in it. Sing the songs the way you feel them or hear them. You do not have to sound like the original singer to be "Good"". Willy Nelson and Elvis Presley sang some of the same songs....Willy did not try to sound like Elvi

  30. I've made this quick video in reply to a question about how to make falsetto more "rich" sound, though it is not necessarily just for falsetto: Linking it in here in case it can help others with the same doubt.

    Dio sang in his head?

    ​im shit too, but i would say dio was always a Curber. It sounds to me at least like a pure definition of Curbing, whereas someone like Rob Halford would sound to me like he is Edgier type of guy. Also Rainbiw with Dio is probably my favourite band ever. Tarot Woman has AMAZING melody, and all 3 album's are genius.

    Dio sang in his head?

    If those notes at the end were M1, they'd probably sound a lot shoutier and a lot harder to enunciate with ease, I think. Dio could layer a distortion on well, anything. He could even distort a piano if he put his voice to it.

    Dio sang in his head?

    Killer - I know what you mean. From a guitarist perspective one of my all time favorites is Steve Lukather. While he is technically brilliant, he always improvises live and he always goes for it. So there may be little mistakes here and there but to me the spontaneity and willingness to bare it all trumps any little technical mistakes. I think that is his "blues" roots shining through. While I'm a big fan of Shred Guitar from a technical aspect, sometimes that "safe" robotic superhuman pyrotechnics gets boring. Plus, in concert, a lot of the shredders do not improvise. I'll always like

  38. Killer, well, on the style (which is heavy metal, not jazz) I don't really know many other singers that improvised and modified their songs live like he did... To be honest I don't even like it so much, I'd rather hear the original lines haha. Heaven and hell became another song i am not sure what you wanted more in terms of risks... It doesn't get much more risky than the manner he chose to write his songs.

    Dio sang in his head?

    I've never really had an ear of his interpretive capabilities, but it might be my tastes. I've never heard Dio sound unhinged, improvisational, unpredictable, or like he was riding a song by the seat of his pants. He was a master of his voice, but regardless of his clean or distorted singing, he usually sounds controlled and meticulous to me. Does anyone have any clips of him singing jazz or something that requires on the spot interpretation? I like chaos in music. Maybe he's just too good of a singer, so I don't the that on the edge of my seat, everything could fall apart at any moment, but

  40. The title says it all.. A friend of mine is 21 and he is a very very light tenor. When he sings sometimes, he really reminds me of Justin Timberlake or even Bruno Mars in terms of a light voice, probably without any weight at all lol.... his lowest notes are so airy and weak, he starts to strain and push for a low C (which is my lowest note, we talked about this with ronws friom this forum). So.. when it comes to higher than G4 he just can't do a thing.. ? He usually goes to falsetto or some lvery very very light head voice.. What's happening? He really can't sing an A4; B4... NOT TAL

    Dio sang in his head?

    GREAT thread gang!!! I'm probably one of the biggest fans of Ronnies singing that you'll ever find and it's amazing to see a thread about his techniques! With regards to the studio recording clip, one thing to consider is that experienced studio singers know that having a headphone mix that is too loud can make you sing off pitch. It's an acoustic phenomenon that I have read about. That is the likely reason behind Dio wanting to get his headphone mix volumes just right. It's a balancing act between being able to "feel" the song and keeping yourself within the volume range that you don't start

    Dio sang in his head?

    I think that Dio usually sang with a fair amount of volume, both in the studio and live. At least volume that was on the louder side of what a man with his physique could do, without straining or getting breathy. And he sang tons of high notes with rasp. Sorry, I have to disagree with that one.
