For a long while, I’ve been trying to figure out other singing styles ’cause I just didn’t want to sing clearly all the time. Singing clearly all the time can be a bit boring and I wanted to discover new singing techniques like singing with a little grit, distortion, maybe a little growling and I want to learn how to scream too. Doing those singing techniques aren’t really all that hard to do. In order to sing like a hard rock and metal singer is that Melissa Cross said on “Zen of Screaming” DVD set is that you need to learn how to sing regularly first, though. Meaning you have to learn how to sing clearly first before you start singing with grit, growling and screaming. Also, gotta learn how to breathe well and all that stuff. Learn how to maintain your throat and take good care of it.
Yeah, I want to learn how to sing like a rock & metal singer. That’s the goal and I’m working my way there. I’m tired of singing acoustic folk music and want to switch to heavier rock n’ roll finally, ya know? I’m a rock n’ roll guy, always has been. I love metal too, though. I want to be able to finally make full band rock n’ roll music and I’m working very hard to make my dream come true. I want to make full band rock songs: heavy guitars, loud drums and bass. I’m also still working on my lead guitar playing ’cause I want to play face melting guitar solos over my songs too.
Some people out there make the mistake that your singing voice stops improving as you get older, but I disagree. Don’t listen to them. I’m 40 years old and noticing a major improvement in my voice, and my singing has gotten more stronger lately. There are famous singers in the industry who are over 50 years old and they still sing very well… singers such as Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, James Hetfield of Metallica, Ozzy still sings well, Steven Tyler still has a strong voice after all these years and many more to name. It’s definitely possible to still have a killer singing voice even when you’re aging. It is possible that I can go from Baritone/bass range to Tenor and I’m that close to getting there too. Just gotta work and practice harder.
I’m not trying to sound like a narcissist or anything, but I’m trying all I can to become a good singer. I want to improve and get better. Sing a little more professionally.
