Shaping Sound - High Screams

Feeling comfortable with your low screams? Let's move onto the high register of your voice. In this lesson, David gives an overview of high screams and the different ways that you can produce them without having to push into it or overwork yourself.

Shaping Sound - High Screams

Just like with the low screams we discussed in Course 8, we're going to start unlocking our highs using shape variations. In this lesson, David talks about the first of the methods we will be using to work on high screams. Remember when we talked about the muscles in the face and how they're important to create sound (Course 7 Lesson 3)? We'll be using that here.

Shaping Sound - High Screams

This lesson is your first warm-up for high screams. If you haven't watched Lesson 2 from this course, we suggest you go back and do that before you dive right into this one.

If you're a fan of funky and unusual overtones, you're going to like this lesson! David uses a similar technique that we used for the low screams to emphasize the low end of a high scream! This gives the sound a lot of depth and interesting qualities.

This warm-up is for the "tongue curled forward" technique we discussed in Lesson 4. If you haven't watched that yet, check it out and then give this a go for yourself!

Sound perception is a tricky thing. In this lesson, David dissects the infamous "pig squeal" vocal which is most commonly associated with low screams.

Shaping Sound - High Screams

Now that we've talked about the "pig squeal" sound and we've accepted that we're going to approach it as a high scream, we're going to work on getting the sound to be consistent. If you read this and have no idea what we're talking about, check out Lesson 6 before you get working on this technique!

We worked on pitch variation for low screams in Course 8, now we're going to take the same concept and apply it to your high screams. As we always say, "all screams are pitch based". In this lesson, David talks about working on the higher register of your voice and how moving the starting pitch will alter the sound of your scream.

If you haven't watched Lesson 8 on applying pitch variation to your high screams, take a moment to go back and do that now. Once you've done that, we can start working on expanding our range so that you can unlock your head voice and get to those high pitches that you desire with your extreme vocals with this warm-up exercise!

Shaping Sound - High Screams

Taking the same long tones warm-up with did with our low screams in Course 8, we are now going to apply it to the higher register of our voice and extreme vocals. If you haven't watched Lesson 8 on pitch variation in relation to high vocals, check that out before getting started here!

Shaping Sound - High Screams

Now for the last warm-up for high screams (for now). If you watched Course 8 you will remember the "stairs" exercise we did with our low screams, we are doing the same for our highs. If you haven't watched Lesson 8 on pitch variation for high screams, take a second to go watch it and then come back to this exercise.
