Damn my voice seriously be manipulated my to sound like a banshee if I it to. Once I swear I went above the audible range, like I could tell the sound was there but I couldn't really hear it. My friends said it hurt their ears.

And dammit Chaz that was one holy voice.

I should also mention I ****ed up my voice by trying to teach myself how to sing metal when I was fourteen. :/

So now I have an unstable voice but I've managed to improve, and now I can sing mellower music well, which is what I now prefer anyway. I'm still slightly jealous of you for being able to do that though.

Nah man I'm jealous of you for being able to control your regular voice.

Also about you stuffing up your voice, that's what I'm worried about doing with mine. In falsetto and even moreso with my normal voice, my throat quickly gets kind of tired after singing. I'm guessing it's something to do with not singing from my diaphragm but no matter what I do it doesn't feel any different.

And yeah I love mellow singing. Favourite singer is Andrew Vanwyngarden off MGMT.

I don't know what to tell you about the diaphragm technique. It's not something I can explain. If it hurts, don't do it. And I hate to tell you this but I also made weird noises that may have aided the damage of my voice, but if you haven't noticed them hurting or making your voice weaker that may not be true in your case.

Yeah that's why it would be much better to get a teacher, it's not something you can learn over the internet like guitar. Also, I'm not making weird voices or anything like that. My throat doesn't even feel 'sore' it just feels tired/used up.

Thanks though.

If you answered no, then scientifically you can't have a booming voice.

My singing voice covers two octasves, from G to G


if I do a FFT on some regular speech it seems to peak around 155Hz (supposedly D#), with the overtones in midrange and such
