How do you sing " screamo " ?

I want to learn , what can I say ?

Answer #1

scream? maybe?

Answer #2

what mrsixstrings12 said im with cause thats right… my singing is screamo-ish and it hurts in the beginning but after awhile im fine… you just have to warm up first

Answer #3

you dont learn to sing it, it means what it means… screaming XD

Answer #4

the one dude is right dont push yourself and just keep trying different thing if it hurts when you do it, STOP immediatley or you could get caluses on your vocal chords which COULD require surgery to remove and would just pretty much screw your singing up forever

dont try to imitate, everyone has there own unique voice and that goes for scream as well

warm-up your voice with regular singing excersises and as for the drink, make sure it isnt too cold because it could constrict your vocal chords. room temperature water is perfect for the vocal chords

Answer #5

Well, I don’t think I’d be good at helping you with this, but I think you should listen to xx_the_a7x_parade_xx. They gave some MAJOR advice! It sounds like they REALLY know their stuff. So I’d say my advice to you is LISTEN TO XX_THE_A7X_PARADE_XX!!! Any other questions, ASK THEM! I might ask them some questions just for curioustiy about this stuff because they REALLY seem to know what they’re talking about here.

Answer #6

uhg…the above answer…really peeved me. blerggher, go be closeminded else wheres…

Anyways. you must first be able to sing. Once you can do that, get vocal lessons and make sure you let it be known that you want to be to doing such a thing with your voice ahead of time. Hopefully ull learn it. not much else to tell you there. I know it has to do with gurgling and other ways of distorting your vocal chords.

Answer #7

I think the first step is hating your life

Answer #8

screaming and singing are completely different as a screamer and a singer here being in a band uve gotta know the differences between your false vocal chords and your vocal chords singing is when your using your vocal chords and your singing in a tone while screaming is yelling using your false vocal chords to make that screamo voice which is sortta a vibration. before you even start screaming you must remember this ALWAYS BREATHE THROUGH your DIAHGRUM. a way to practice this is by humming or just practicing your breathing from your diahghrum. soz if my spelling’s wrong, I did this really quickly. anyway once you know how to breathe (breathing is really important) try and use your false vocal chords which are like towards the back of your throat and make a vibration type of sound but DO NOT PUSH. another massive tip DO NOT PUSH. if you push your pushing too hard and ull sound like a dying frog, also ull be hurting your vocal chords plus ull wake up the next day speaking like a witch (ull lose your voice). water is the best drink, ofc you can drink alcohol and milk and shit but if your on stage/moving a lot and your drinking them, your either gonna throw up or with alcohol when your drunk ull be screaming and singing at a different tone. ALWAYS USE your DIAHGRUM. NEVER USE your THROAT TO MAKE THE NOISES. you USE THE THING CALLED THE FALSE VOCAL CHORDS. IF you NEED TO USE THE DUMP/BABY WHICH IS WHEN your LIKE PUSHING IN (LIKE WHEN your TAKING A SHIT). NOW JUST LET THE AIR FLOW GENTLY AND LET IT VIBRATE. PRACITCE AND PRACTICE DRINK WATER DURING BREAKS. AND ALWAYS WARM UP your VOCAL CHORDS, ESPECIALLY WHEN you HAVE JUST WOKEN UP because THEN your MUSCLE’S WILL BE WOKEN UP TOO. you HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT your THROAT’S A MUSCLE, THIS IS WHY you DRINK WATER. TO HYDRATE IT. EVENTUALLY ULL BE ABLE TO SCREAM LOUDER AND LOUDER and HEAR PERFECT. ALSO JUST BECAUSE you DONT SOUND LIKE MIKE HRANICA OR OLLIE SYKES IT DOESNT MEAN your GUD. people HAVE DIFF SCREAMING VOICES, JUST LIKE SINGING. I hope this helped.

Ok first off, there’s more to it than just screaming. You have to know HOW to do it and what things to do… or else you’ll fck up your vocal cords and sht. That wouldn’t be too fun now would it? Screamo sounds really awesome when done right. My advice to you is just practice. You won’t sound EXACTLY like the bands who do screamo. Everybody who does screamo has their own unique(sp? oh well if so I don’t really care if I don’t spell something right) sound. Just try to start out by testing different sounds and such… low, loud, in between. Each should have a different sound. DON’T PUSH YOURSELF. If your throat starts hurting or your voice starts slipping STOP. Don’t risk hurting your vocal chords. Keep a drink like water, gatorade or whatever you drink, handy that way you can get a drink in between screaming. Be sure to take breaks from it too. Don’t keep practicing 24/7. Get a drink before you start, in between during your breaks from screaming and after you’ve finished for the day/night. Don’t try to be something your not either. If you don’t get it, don’t worry. Maybe you will some other time. Practice for a half hour or an hour and then stop for the time being and maybe try again later that night for another half hour or so. Be sure to take a few 10 minute breaks or so in between your practicing times too as I said before. Just follow my advice and you should be fine. But like I said… if it hurts… STOP. Don’t ever push yourself or else you’ll cause damage to your throat/vocal cords and then you’ll really be wishin you hadn’t of pushed it huh? Well good luck! Need anything else regarding this or something… don’t be afraid to ask Oh and ignore the dumbasses who just say stuff like “uhhh… just scream” or “start by hating your life”. Screamo has nothing to do with hating your life.
