Strengthening the false cords is a bit of a misnomer, but not a big one.

You are actually strengthening the muscles that control the false cords as they are atrophied from not being used since you...

This really just depends upon your natural range.

Megadeth is the easiest but he uses a very similar technique to James(They were in the same band after all). James actually has a very nice melodic voice, at least to my ears.

20tigers, that sounds like a good approach. I'm more visual so I like to use my auto tune to show me where I'm off and by how much (I'm pretty good with tuning, but we play with some weird modes...

guitaror didn't like what he heard in the growling thread so he brought it to the main forum.

Nope, I meant from head to chest. Sorry, no information on what you are talking about about a falsetto to head bridge.

Only thing I'll add is push from below the diaphragm in the groin region. This gives you more stability and makes it easier to switch between full out distortion to clean without losing the note.

It's not easy to totally disengage the true folds when doing vestibular fold (false) screaming.

As such, you will probably always have a little irritation. Over time, that will decrease. For...

Karoly, that's what I'm saying. Your just doing a form of throat distortion. It's not really a technique so much as a vocal effect. At least that's my understanding of it.

What's the loudness on the scream you think? You may just be using throat distortion. If so, and you add diaphragmatic pressure to it, it will hurt.

I honestly have no clue. If I was to guess it's probably a falsetto based fry mixed with the false cord akin to how Trevor from TBDM does some of his highs. He then probably mixes how much of each...

Well damn darktimes. That cover is real nice. You have a beautiful, mellow voice. It sounds like a little training would go along way as well as some production.
