Hi.
Im in a band, and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for cover songs or bands with low or lower pitched singers.
Thanks.

Rammsteins singer has a low pitched voice.
Maybe look for some growling as well, if you like that.

Tell him to try singing louder, it helps extend the range, and when you sing rough, you know semi screaming like in blues rock and hard rock.

Low pitch singers, RHCP, Foo Fighters, Gary Moore.

if you're talking full bass voices ion dissonance and cannibal corpse. that sort of stuff.
more baritone would be slipknot sort of range.

my advice is :
transpose your vocal parts down an ocatve .
sometimes you may have raise some part back up for consistancy .
experiment with different keys , and most important dynamics , imho the music should always support the voice .
most singers have a higher falsetto range but the notes wont be as loud up there so keep those sections quiter and you should get an overall better sound .
i hope this advice helps

People will think you're really creative to have changed some cover songs to fit your band, but you really just changed the key signature so your singer can actually sing. It's a two-fer!

Barry White, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave.

Doesn't get much lower than those.

Or just play the songs in a different key that'll suit your singer more. It's what I do when I'm busking, half the songs were originally in C and I play them in G.

I was talking more mainstream rock or punk/pop punk voices, sorry.
But thanks for the tips.

(a) The point made a few times in here about using a capo to simply change the key of the original song still applies.

(b) Why limit yourself to only one genre? Branch out and play lots of different stuff. One of my favourite bands - in fact, one of the only really good bands - in the town I'm in are a typical 'brit-pop indie' style band, and thus admitedly their music - while good - does get a bit samey after a while. However, they hugely throw in a cover by someone a bit different - Wolfmother, The Eurythmics, McFly etc. - and they've also written a song which is branching on thrash metal. Really good stuff, seriously, don't limit yourself.

Hinder or Nickelback if you are actually into that kinda stuff. As for pop punk Tom Delonge of Blink 182 has a lower voice than most.

DO IT, right after a generic rock song.
