How do you sing screamo without hurting your throat?
Screaming is only bad for you if you don't know what your doing. As long as you do it right, it shouldn't be a problem. Follow my tips for screaming and you should do just fine -
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 f*ck up your vocal cords and sh*t. 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 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. This is an important thing to do to keep your vocal chords moist, that way your vocals chords don't start getting dry. 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 wishing you hadn't of pushed it huh?
Ignore the dumbas*es who just say stuff like uhhh... just scream or start by hating your life. Screamo has nothing to do with hating your life. And there's WAY more to it than just screaming.
I think this about covers all the basics. I hope I was able to help you out. Good luck and if you need anything else, let me know.
If your a girl and you need refrences by listening to another girl doing screamo - listen to Kittie. They're an all female metal band and they're screaming is very good.
Theres no way to not hurt your throat.
There are soothes (like honey) but thats just a temporary fix...
Screaming is a lot of strain on your vocals chords, and if you push them too hard they'll give out, theres nothing to stop it from happening, but there are things to prolong it.
I sing in all ways INCLUDING Screamo, my throat never hurts maybe its how much strain you put on it, when you sing screamo if you feel strain then stop.
I also do lots of silly high pitched voices, this helps the throat stretch.
hope this helps.
you drink honey after to sooth your throat
