fo all yo dudes that think screaming takes no talent grow some balls and honestly try it go into a mic and scream u cant can u want to know why cuz your yelling not screaming

screaming takes more talent than singing cuz singing is natural screaming is not

the way you want to scream is by whispering but listen u hear that raspie sound

make it as loud as you can and it will sound pretty bad but u can make out the screaming now practice for about 3 years till u can make it go as loud as

when u yell

yeah thats how u actually scream

Yeah, ok. Id like to see 3 of these moder screamers sing a 3 part harmony. They cant, because they cant sing so they revert to screaming. Its like saying oh i cant play guitar so ill throw on loads and loads of distortion and make noise!

Kurt Cobain did a lot of screaming in his songs, and I always thought he had a great voice, even when screaming. There's also some screaming (although not screamo style screaming) in Bad Religion's music, which incidentally includes 3 part harmonies in nearly every song. There's alot of screaming going on in NoFx's songs too, although mostly that's being done by Eric Melvin (the Mel Yell) and not by Fat Mike, but Mike does some screaming as well, although he does sing kinda flat.

I can actually enjoy the screaming, but there's a definite technique to doing it.

One important thing is that you have to make your diaphragm, NOT your vocal cords, do most of the actual work. Your vocal cords should be doing no more work than as if you were talking loudly. This puts the stress on a muscle, which simply gets stronger as it is worked. (You still have to be careful, but it's a lot less harmful this way.) As to the correct way to do this, consulting with a voice teacher would be a good idea. Not only can they teach you how to do it without harming your voice, but to scream in a wider pitch range. Knowing how to actually sing normally would be helpful as well.

Thanks for trying everyone. Its so hard when you are trying to exactly match a look same type of pockets, same color, same lining, which I would really like to get because I know hed like it. None of the pictures look right in that way His down doesnt make the outside the "bubble" style, his has just the side type pockets, not ones with flaps, etc.
I did check all those sights thanks for the referrals , and I had checked eBay but will try again, because you never know what ends up there, right?
Thanks again for looking.

Does anyone have any tips on screaming like Scary Kids or Underoath?

I developed a way, but afterwards I can't sing as well. Is there some secret to this?

If your throat hurts afterwards, you're doing it wrong. Screaming is a very unique form of singing, and it's talent none the less (if you're good that is), so for all you people who think it's just some stupid style of music, I'm sorry, but I think you're an idiot. It's one thing to not care for that particular style or genre of music, but to talk down on it as if there is no talent prevailed in screaming whatsoever is just flat out stupid. but anyways, back to what I was going to say about screaming tips/advice and what not. When you sing, you use your throat more so, as opposed to when you scream, growl, etc. you want to sing more through your diaphragm (spelling?). Think of it as if you are clenching your stomach muscles and pushing noise out that way, instead of yelling at the top of your lungs to the point where your throat hurts afterwards. Go on youtube and check out some of the videos about how to scream. Some of them are shit and completely terrible advice, but if you come across a video that is somewhat telling you the same advice I am right now, then you're on the right track and chances are that's the best video to get some extra advice. But yeah, start off doing some exercises. Just growl at first. You won't be all that loud to start off, but the more you practice, the louder you'll get. Don't try and gut it out with all your might at first or youll mess up your vocal chords. It takes time. so start of at a comfortable volume level and just basically train your voice to make it louder and make new sounds. and again, if your throat hurts after you do it, you're doing something wrong. That's how you really mess up your vocal chords. I somewhat scream as well as sing, and play lead guitar in my band. So because of that, I always make sure I don't overdo it to the point where I can't even sing normal. Keep practicing and good luck!

I play mostly vintage country tunes and favor singers like Buck Owens for example. Do a few pop tunes to boot. guys in my band love my stuff... I am former front man singer as well.
