Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

Three Days Grace Grit?

Hello fellow students!

I was wondering if you all could help me identify a particular type of grit or scream.

In the Three Days Grace songs, Adam goes in and out of different sounds ranging from clean and airy to sounding like he's gonna kill the microphone. ( in a good way)

In the songs, " Never too late" and "Over and over" ( for example if you'd like to Youtube them) he goes in and out a lot. "I hate Everything About you" as well. All of their songs actually, ha-ha.

What kind of vocal technique is he using to achieve that very even and on pitch gritty power?

right now I'm following Raise Your Voice, and I was hoping to be able to add this style to my singing eventually. I can do "chewbacas" and vocal fry. But I'm not sure how to get that type of power in the correct place so I don't hurt my voice.

Any tips?

Thanks for your time! :)

Re: Three Days Grace Grit?

It's just a basic mid-range grit variation. I cover it in Extreme Scream 2;)
