well i'm new to ultimate-guitar and need some feedback on my vocals. I've been working on the fry scream technique since June 2011 and i'm not sure if i'm doing it right. I'm only 18 and I've no vocal training, just practice with a cheap recorder. please watch my vocal cover and leave me some tips. video is below. i probably look and sound like an idiot but i wanna get better, so thanks to anyone who can help me improve.

Not bad. Not bad at all. I wish I could leave you some tips. Figured I'd at least say you're doing good. Hows your lows?

Wow thanks, i wasn't expecting to get any comments! My lows are weaker admittedly, but i'm trying to work on them. i just don't know any training methods for that. and is there anything wrong with my technique? thanks again

This is actually really good, it seems like all you have to work on is just keeping the sound (I noticed a few times you went in and out of it for a sec)

Have you really been working on it since June? How have you been practicing/how did you learn?

Really? Thanks man, that means a lot. I first learned about fry screams in June and just practiced by screaming favorite songs, like the one above. Sometimes it hurts a little bit and at other times my scream is weak so I still have a loooong way to go but comments like yours really motivate me to better myself. I practice maybe an hour every other day just working on getting the sound up and then screaming a few songs. I also bought ZoS 1&2 but they honestly didn't help me at all (sorry melissa! :p) I want more overtone in my scream, more meat so to speak, but I guess that comes with practice. Im not sure how to practice that, if anyone could help that'd be great. Thanks again for the comment!

Sounds pretty good man, you got a pretty basic fry scream down.

Now add you're own voice into it and you got yourself a beastly scream

Thing is with Fry is it's next to impossible to get any power behind it, I thought most bands used False Chord these days?

Tim Lambesis, Randy Blythe, Myself, Phil Labonte, Matt Heafy, The guy from in flames (newer stuff) Any GOOD metalcore band, most modern "hardcore" bands, and Phil Bozeman beg to differ

Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm having a lot of trouble doing what you suggested though. I've tried and tried, but my voice gives out when I try to scream with tone. I feel like I'm pushing too hard for my scream and it stops my voice from coming through. If you could help me add my voice to the scream that would be awesome. Any tips or exercises I can do maybe?

We can help you out in here buddy. I'm not a fry expert, I'm still mastering the technique honestly.

But there is some guys in this thread that can get you on the right track.
