Ok, so what's this called when you're not EXhaling to sing a note, but instead you're INhaling. Just to make really high notes, though. I've heard the phrase 'zipping up the vocal cords'..is that what this is? And is this your falsetto, as well?

Yeah, I think it's the BelCanto technique.
The reason that made me wonder, was that I was just doing the 'Dream On' scream like that and it seemed so much easier..but I doubt that's how Tyler does it.

BelCanto is for singing if I remember, is not inhale singing the way you think of it. Not like pig squeal style or something, it;s almost like a opera thingy. It won't let you get any higher notes.

In short, BelCanto will not let you hit higher notes, just better tone if I remember, and inhale singing can **** your chords up.

Nothing at all like Bel Canto.

Ghast is mostly right about the BelCanto assessment in that it does give you better tone. But, because you are producing the voice properly, you will make maximum use of your range, and you will hit notes higher (and lower) than you could otherwise, and with better tone - all because you're doing it right.

Zipping the vocal cords is something that Roger Love talks about. I don't know much about it, except that it has some basic things in common with Bel Canto, but is also SO fundamentally different from BelCanto that the two are most certainly not to be confused.

Maybe I just don't get it, but the idea of zipping your vocal cords is ostensibly to make them shorter. I can't make my arms, or my legs, or my nose any shorter. I fail to see how anyone could make their vocal cords shorter.

Alright, thanks. This is enlightening in a way, haha.
I would record a lil' snippet of what I'm talking about..except my mic cable is acting up.
So, yea.

EDIT: Ok, use this video as an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pmAk5pndsg&feature=related

Jump to 3:48...is that being done with this 'inhale singing' I'm talking about?

No, that is falsetto, with a slight bit of a rough edge added onto it.
You know how to sing in falsetto, correct? Try it out, and you'll see what I mean, it takes a bit of practice to get it as great as Steven, but it can be done.

I'm not sure how Steven Tyler is singing these days, but in his really early material, he sang way far back in his throat. He has a naturally pretty high voice, though, I think.

If you want to do Aerosmith stuff, you gotta develop that head voice. I'm not sure what you mean by "inhale singing." Other than ridiculous squealing, grunty metal stuff, you can't really inhale sing. You can direct the placement of the note into areas in your mouth or head, but it's got nothing to do with inhaling while singing.
