    Whats up guys, I know this is a recording forum, but there are artists too. This is for them

    I don't think that I have a great voice, but I at least want to try singing more. I like lots of genres of music and love making songs. One thing I would love to learn is how to put natural distortion on your voice. Kind of like Foo Fighters, but not as extreme as that. Just getting that rough sound in some of the notes. My friend says it is a learned thing, so I would like to try it! Links to online tutorials or books are welcome, But when I google voice disortion I get all sorts of effects pedals. Later dudes and dudettes
     
  2. A lot of Dave's sound is in the way he sings. I don't think he uses much distortion with the exception of a few parts.

    hey man soz
    but there is no way to" put on" natural "distortion" on your voice
    it basically happends wen ur vocal folds overdrive and produce harmonics
    any one can do it however it isn't healthy and the artists do this because it is part of them it is wot they feel so if it comes out as a growl or crack or whine then they live with that and the consequences,
    eg look at steve tyler he is classed as one of the greatest rock singers of all time yet he is constantly killin his voice cos he sings so hard
    but he dosent care if he looses it cos thats his voice and he wont comprimise on his sound to save it.
    now i'm not saying he is wrong because he has found his own voice but as a vocal coach/engineer i get ask the same questions everyday how can i sound like steve, jon bon,etc but ask yourself who do they sound like?
    ...themselves so if you want to be a good/great singer find your own voice/style and hopefully one day some one will look up 2 u :wink:
