  1. Hello, everyone! I've been a part of this forum fir a long time and I wanted to share our first single with you. I've been struggling with vocal issues this last two years so this is the result of a ton of effort and dedication, please have a listen I hope you like it, and even better, share it. We'll be releasing two new singles on September, so subscribe to our channel
  2. Hey , man! How are you doing?  Please check our new single :D

     

     

  3. I have a vocal fold gap, and have to constantly work to erase it. The best way I have found to avoid fatigue is actually talking in a med to loud volume and with clear and well placed vowels. If my vowels are lazy, I immediately hear the buzz of turbulent air making my voice brighter unintentionally, and this translates in adjacent larynx and neck muscles trying to compensate the lack of compression. This could turn very fast into heavyness and a burning sensation on the left side of my neck. When this gets bad it turns into an electric feeling. The placement of the tongue is very importa
  4. Have you listened to Haendel's Messiah? Dude, those Baritones singing tenor parts sound awesome.
  5. I never ever warm up with lip trills or lip rolls. My voice has a tendency to get light and unconnected, so doing those doesn't help me at all. They dry out my vocal folds and kind of nullify any ability of me to generate a chesty tone above my second passaggio hahah So yeah, you can warm up without lip trills. What I do is WAH-WAH-WAH and YEH-YEH on the center of my voice on a medium volume and then loud for about 5 minutes. For my particular voice, which has a tendency to pull my larynx up, I focus on keeping a more "classical" position, so my chest voice engages better and in a beefier
  6. Men don't form nodules as far as I know, Only women and children. You would have to yell everyday for hours for a good couple of months. You probably have just an imbalanced voice right now, try to balance it with exercises and don't yell as it could be too tough on your vocal muscles.
  7. I forgot to mention that using it on my lowermid to low range is almost impossible, at least for now... It seems that I need the smaller space a higher note requires to make the walls -or whatever vibrates inside the vocal tract- to be nearer and be able to collide. I can do this from like E4 and up. Doing this on B4 and up is easier ( when I get the coordination right), as probably my twang helps with the walls touching.
  8. I'm currently learning how to do that distortion, it's the only one I've been able to do in a healthy and sustained way. Support almost doesn't change in the mid range, it's the high range that needs more "push" at least on my voice and right now. I really concentrate on keeping the base phonation's sound height of the larynx and embouchure position, and only moving the parts OVER the vocal folds, and picture like there is nothing obstructing the actual folds. Just ask me if you wanna know something else that I feel or whatever, I must say
  9. Hey guys, I'm posting this as a sort of "hey all, long time no see, I'm doing well" hahah EDIT :Also, I don't ask for critique or review, I'm just showing what I've been doing for others who want to listen or study. I think someone posting about what they think the distortion is, or how it compares to theirs does not help my singing directly. I repeat myself "I posted this as a "hey all, this is what I've been doing" because the "tell your gains" thread is dead. If after this clarification my thread still belongs here, then I'm ok with that, but I just wanted to make it clear. I just wanted
  10. This is not very related, but I couldn't stay silent, hahah. As much as I deeply love Kyo for his awesome screams, I wouldn't take his early screaming ( up to 2009 probably?) as an example to follow xDDD unless I want me some nice vocal surgery xP His Uroboros' screams and later sound way healthier though. I totally relate to that, man. When I "sing for myself" , as my mom tells me to do so I don't bother the TV viewers hahah my throat sets into a placement or coordinations that makes my normal singing harder later.
  11. I think of the EE up high as a modified EH. I play around with the position of my tongue and found out that most of what makes MY vowel EE is how I place the BACK of my tongue. One exercise I do is to see how much I can open my mouth towards an AH without the EE changing so noticebly. You will end up with another vowel hahah but you start recognizing the boundaries of your vowels. This is how I shape my EE probably from E4(this one I'm not sure, probably an F4?)-G4 and up, it's like an EH, but I modify just enough for it to sound like an EE. I hope it helps, man
  12. If you have practice improvising or you like it, you can try to fill with that between a couple of songs, man! It could even be of use for you for a future song
  13. Could you upload an example please of how your vocal fry sounds and how the full mixed sounds like? Around an A4-A#4, or higher if possible
  14. It doesn't resemble a vocal fry at all though, in sound. Maybe in the "tight" and "sealed" sensation, but not in sound.
  15. By base level I mean a minimum energy that will be required to "mix", or to engage the TA musculature. The "maximum" limit, like if I want to be louder or sound more chesty, has developed in time.
