    I started trying to growl last week, and I've read through this entire thread at least 4 times in one week now (>_<) and, there's only one thing I'm wondering. When I try to hold a note for long, I run out of air super fast, are there any good tips on this or will I just keep trying and hope for it to get better?

    And, since that tony bullard file posted on the first poage or something doesn't work, I found a working link and I thought I could post it incase someone wants to check it out or something. http://www.tonybullard.com/media/Tony_Bullard_-_Metal_Vocal_Tutorial.mp3

    well i guess you might need to learn how to manage your air use, maybe your putting to much air and not enough voice, or relying to much on it, i mean im no growler but i remember some of this from my grade 3 music class:lol:

    Hah, I started with system of a down too :lol: It was kind of the first metal I ever heard so I was pretty much blown away. Nowdays, soad feels kind of lame, though it brings me a lot of memories. :)

    Here is a little clip of me growling, I know its not anything like pefect or so, and I'm just 15 years old. It was like 2 months ago and I think i've got better by now. You dont have to comment or rate on video, but i would appreciate if you could give me some feedback here at this forum.

    The video is found in here:

    Cheers

    I like the cat screams in the background. Not a bad job though.

    Ok, I don't think this one has been asked yet. So I can growl and have it never hurt. It's semi-low but not nearly as low as I would like. I'm able to go lower but it only ever ends up hurting my throat pretty bad, so, should I stick with the method that isn't killing my vocal cords and continue to practice until something eventually cracks and I'm able to find the tone I want? or should I just suck it up and try the other way until I'm used too it?

    Tighten your mouth like an asshole...and reach deep from your gut...breathe good....and that's all you need.

    I've learnt something new for myself lately. I don't know if it was said or if I just didn't catch on, But, for me when I loosen my whole mouth (including cheeks) and use as little muscle with my jaw and tongue as possible, I can do way deeper and get a more clean sound. Only problem is holding a long growl, which will come with time.

    Ive got a question about the whole growling thing and you guys seem to know about this quite well so I hope you can help me out. I can produce the growls and screams and such to what I think is pretty good, the only probly is it seems like my throat doesn't want to keep it going. After alittle bit (always randomly, sometimes after a couple minutes, sometimes ten minutes) I can't make the growls or screams at all...its just me pushing out nothing but hot air, almost as if my throat is dried up or something. If I go take a little break and get something to drink and wait a couple minutes or so I can usually jump right back into it but then the process just rinses and repeats. This is a problem because I would like to join a band but I can't just take a three minute break in the middle of a song, let alone make it through a whole set like that...so Ive got a couple questions. Could the growls and screams just be coming from my saliva alone and it all dries up so no more growls (if so....how do I stop that and make growls like a real man), am i just growling-handicapped, or do I just need lots more practice? Any help is appreciated. :)

    I'm a noob, but I'd say just keep practicing. Takes forever it seems, but it all falls in to place eventually. Patience is key to everything.
