Vocal-related things that are surprising/unexpected

Post  colin040 on Mon Mar 11, 2013 5:24 am

Anything, as long as it's vocal related that you found unexpecting, surprised you,whatever can be discussed here.

I'm surprised Zak Stevens high notes sound very familiar to Jon Oliva's ones at times. Especially on some of the older Savatage songs, Zak manages to do a decent Jon impression. Just listen to him here:

My 79 grandfather talked in an entire line on A4's not too long which I really didn't expect at all, considering his age and also the way he speaks - he rarely goes higher than anything in the third octave or so.

Brian Johnson used to sound like a demigod:

(Just throwing the classic ones here)

Richie Sambora sings just as good as Jon, if not even better:

I know what you mean about the oldness and talking in a lower range..
My grandpa came to visit a few days a go and he started to talk to my dog just throwing random G and G#4s in.
And normally when he talks he sticks to the 3rd octave.

(When i talk most of the time i talk in the 2nd octave, and i dont know why i`m doing it because its not my most comfortable piece of range)

My grandfather who I mentioned earlier showed some of his range, approximately from F2 to B4 or something. Not bad for a 79 year old I guess. Laughing

I was surprised when I discovered that my dad, who has never considered himself a singer, has a 4-octave vocal range (in his 60s).

So... How about the actual sound of it?

His F2's sound really dark and full (wouldn't be surprised if he'd be able to sing quite some low notes if he'd really try) and his B4 was OK....his A4's that he showed during an entire line sounded quite better though.

This makes me curious about my other grandfather. He's 86 and got quite a light voice (I think he's a low tenor.) Maybe I should ask him to demonstrate some singing someday. Smile

Not familiar with this singer by any means, but is it weird that I found some of his higher speaking to be quite unususal for a bass baritone? Hearing those gives me an idea he could be a high baritone or something. On the other hand, the low speaking at 1:55 sounds freaking boomy.

It's not weird at all since not everyone follows our standards on voice types...

I hope one day we'll look back at the days when we judged singing classifications by speaking voice and laugh.

Since a few hours i can whistle an A6!! Its not a loud whistle note but it is one and i can control it a little bit already, its only a A6 and nothing lower... So now my range is Eb2 - C6(and a whistle A6)

I am proud already and i hope to extend it a bit.

About 3 years ago I had bronchitis and I lost my usual singing voice. I would have a coughing fit whenever I went to sing. The surprising thing is that one day during this period I discovered this stratospheric Mark Boals-ish high register that I had never had before, which was confined to the range of G5-D6....if I tried to hit anything F#5 or below - or higher than D4 - I would have a coughing fit.

When I recovered I lost those crazy high notes and have never had anything like it since Confused

Funny thing, the singer of the band that i`m playing in tried to sing those notes from "Loving You" by Minnie Ripperton. And she thought they were fine as she sang them (The highest she sang was a Falsetto A5..) So when i told her, its actually not Falsetto but Whistle (And that its an octave higher ) she said that i had to shut my mouth because she was having singing lessons and she knew what she was doing, and i couldn`t sing :') So i wouldn`t know.

(And she still doesn`t know that i`m right about those Whistled notes.. and when i asked her if she knew what Whistle Register was she couldn`t tell me.)
