People say you need to be born with a singing voice, but do you need to be born with a screaming voice? or do you just need to be an alto and practice a TONNE?

I think anyone can scream with practice and the right technique, but everyone's will sound different

Why would you have to be an alto?

I'm a baritone, and a really good screamer. I would do it more, but I'd need soundproofing to record.

You don't need to be an alto

I think its all practiice, technique. Like anything really I suppose.

Vocals are just another instrument, the more you practise the better you become. With enough practice anyone can learn to scream. It will just sound slightly different from person to person.

You just have to practice. It's like practicing to do that for a long time, to get a nice sound out of it, and try to break your voice a bit through the shout

i do it a lot. ill be playin somethin and i forget to close my mouth... sometimes its really bad, slobber everywhere. i goes mostly over the neck, on the higher frets, and its really hard to get out from under the strings.

Yeah, just like everyone said above, screaming comes with practice and persistance.
You'll probably find for awhile that your voice will just crack and you'll cough and splutter and what not (especially with inhale screaming) but just stick at it and you'll get a nice sound.

Hell you can do a 'proper' scream in so many ways from inhaling to putting your voice through shitty distortion pedals.

Personally I don't find it that appealing of a sound, but when I do do it I like to push my voice to the threshhold, think of a mix between Kurt Cobains scream and James Hetfields voice.

I've never tried...though it looks like I'm going to be singing bass in choir this year...maybe I should start a death metal core hardrock monster band

I think there is a way to learn, but most people either have it, or they don't.

From my experience, i'd say practice. I failed at it when i was like 13 or so. Now i can do it pretty good. On the other hand, my friend kind of sucks at it, and i think he's been trying for a while. I'm not sure how hard he tried. But it just came to me one day, so im thinking part of it is how your vocal cords mature

Learn the death metal GRGRHRGR growl, that way you wont have to write lyrics since no one understands it anyway.
