The best technique for vocal distortion

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Hey guys Nikita here

I'm writing a 3000 word essay on the best/worst teaching methods of tackling vocal distortion, what works and what doesn't work and whats the best way of safely learning and practicing the technique. Could anyone please help and answer a few questions i have on my mind right now???

what do you guys know about distortion, where is it placed in the voice?

how much support and grounding do you feel distortion needs?

is there a certain standing position you suggest to stand in when performing/practicing distortion?

do you have any particular warm-ups/exercises that you feel really help you with creating a safe healthy distorted sound?

are there any other technical names used other than 'distortion'?

is there more than one type of distorted sound a person can make, if so what are their technical names?

how many singing methods do you know that teach distortion? do you feel they work? and are they safe?

it would mean a lot if any one could help me!!

Anyway, to be serious and answer the question posted in the thread, the safest distortion I can do is Robert Lunte's overlay distortion, caused by increase twang until I get vibration in the upper vocal tract, usually at some of my higher pitches, which, to me, even though twanging a good deal, feels like I am relaxing. Doesn't hurt, even sounds a bit like the rattle from the original singer of Molly Hatchet.
