Try humming other notes that will cause a louder grisly distortion compared with the humHey all,
Not sure if I’m the first not one, but when I growl, I can hear it, and so can other people. Is this due to bad technique or does this just happen? Please enlighten me
Can you explain what you mean by 3,3,3,5,3? Are you saying he's playing over a C major chord, so the E s are thirds in the chord, maybe?Its 3,3,3, 5, 3. So if the first note is your E on tenor then its in concert Bb.
Absolutely :cheers::cheers:To me this is perfect for the style. It's the kind of music I play the most. Gordon's playing is always really balls to the wall. It's great. Hark back to the old honkers in the 50's and 60's.
It is just practice, after all singers can keep singing for long periods of time once they are used to it.My question is how do you all keep up the humming the entire solo? I guess it's just practice, but my throat gets tired. If I could vocalize for that long, I'd be a singer.
Everybody's different. I have to make a conscious effort not to growl...My question is how do you all keep up the humming the entire solo? I guess it's just practice, but my throat gets tired. If I could vocalize for that long, I'd be a singer.
Pete nailed it, also you don't have to try and hum along with the solo or the melody, you just start humming a note and then forget about what you are doing because whatever needs to happen just happens based on "biofeedback" in the broadest sense of the word. You can stop and start at any time but sometimes you get so absorbed that you forget to stop. But don't worry, your throat will eventually tell you that it's enough :mrgreen:It is just practice, after all singers can keep singing for long periods of time once they are used to it.
But the other thing is don't think you have to actually "growl", The vocal side of it it can be quite light, it's the saxophone playing side of it that needs to be more forceful. The vocalising is really just a sort of catalyst that sets up an acoustic interference - you don't need to hum more aggressively to get a growlier growl. I know that seems a bit counter-intuitive, but it gets easier the more you practise.
