do any of you practice your screams to songs? How do you do it without like bothering the neighbors?

I do it in the shower.

Don't bother with the Zen of Screaming, especially the first one. The first one is just an advertisement for Melissa Cross. She's a great vocal coach, but the video offers little to nothing.

While practicing screaming, I highly suggest you use some sort of vocal amplification. Scream along with your favorite songs. If you're screaming along without amplification, chances are you won't be able to hear yourself, just what you think you sound like. Also, it allows you to not strain as much to reach volume.

I live in the woods so that's never a problem for me. My parents seem acoustomed to it by now. I suppose you could sound proof your room if you're really nervous about your neighbors hearing you.

I can't do exhales of any sort. Growls, screams, nothing.

But I've always been able to do inhales. I can do this aweosme pteradactyl scream. Kinda sounds like a Black Metal scream.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can't do exhales. I only REALLY want to growl, like an Åkerfeldt growl, hell, even a Vehemence growl.

But it never works. I do everything I need to, from lip position, to sitting upright and whatnot. Nothing.

So, even thoughI don't do vocals, I stick to my screeches and ****. Inhales ftw.

I think if I could scream like anyone, I would be a backup screamer.

Listen to "She Never Noticed Me".

Now, I wish I could growl like the main vocalist, and Mikael Åkerfeldt, but the backup screamer in Vehemennce is great too.

He adds a certain aspect the song that would make the song feel lacking without it. It's very cool.

And his screams aren't bad either.

I mean, look at "The Leper Affinity" *Stares at screen name.*

But, seriously. That's one badass scream. Only an Åkerfeldt could pull that off.

You don't have to make them THAT loud.....I do it along with loud music that isn't loud enough to carry too far.....practice screaming in tune also....I know, almost contradictory..

why practice screaming... do you expect to be raped or something?

screams are becoming more important. singing is important as well, but nowadays screaming is just another weapon in the holster of a singer.
