Most of us love screaming. Did you know screaming can be very dangerous for you and your throat? But not when you exercise your vocal cords regularly for your rehearsals. Yes, there’s the safest way to scream- I mean to grit and distort- Check it out-
Breath with Support
No, it doesn’t mean to breathe taking wall support or chair support. You have to breathe from your lower stomach, a full deep breath. Just stand up; place your hands over your hip sides; hold and take a deep breath. Yeah, just like that! Once you have mastered your stomach breathing, you will be able to breathe with your lower stomach. You need not worry, that’s pretty simple!
Open Throat Method
Don’t compress your voice, or deepen it. Just sing like no one is watching you. Some people tend to sing low due to shyness, or being in a crowd. No, you are going to be singing in future; you must not low down your voice, instead, have that guts and sing high. Distorting is simple, but before you step into distortion or grit, sound clean and bright. This applies for all those beginner vocalists out there, not just the rock and pop ones.
Know the degrees of distortion
Another important step that you need to count in. Before you start gritting or distorting, make sure that you know the levels of it. Trust me, starting from a high pitch can make your throat worse for several days. Start low, then higher a bit, then again go high, and now bring out your real voice. This will overwhelm your audience.
