I couldn't find anything. Such a weird voice. >.<

My only thought would be backing vocals. But Courtney doesn't do her own backing vocals. There's a spot in "Best Sunday Dress" where the backings reach C5 though Sad

From the new stuff she's released, it's blatantly obvious she's got nodes (how could she not?). Everything is really low, raspy, and breathy, but then again, who the fuck knows with Courtney Love?

I'm not a big courtney love fan, But it's weird seeing a woman with such a small upper range, even for an Alto this is ridiculous.
Her lows seem ridiculous too, a red B1? Damn.
I'll notewatch her a little later for you and she if I can find something Smile

You could probably cut out the A3 and B♭3 parts from significant lows and lead it up to a G3

Thanks Smile. I'm not sure if all of them are black, as some may be screams (esp. songs from the Pretty on the Inside era)

Fair enough Smile, but on "Awful" as well?

Edit: What do you suggest? Because I'm not catching your drift.

I legitimately cheered after I saw this. Thanks so much donuts Smile
And the links... I didn't use 'official' audio for most of those (they hadn't been pitch shifted and the quality was always on point, but there's always room for error) So, the video you watch is probably going to be better than mine Smile

That's the most manly range I've ever seen on a woman.

Sorry, I mean you can get rid of the A3 and Bb3 entries in low notes because if she has a black E2, an A3 and Bb3 aren't really that significant.

I know that contralto and alto are used interchangeably on the forum (idk why because it's rather ridiculous), and I hadn't seen a 'Contralto' thread.

Idk, most of these lows, esp. Babydoll, are screamed. I think it's a better idea to label her (and anyone else, really) as a contralto.

Good singer for someone with hella terrible nodes :\.

In the only song I've heard with her she sounds like a crack whore, she does the song no favors.

She actually sounds nicer on this than some of her own stuff. All the effects probably contribute Sad.

I always liked her for the real sounding music, didn't mean it was the best though

I haven't checked any of her songs apart from "Malibu", but I'm very doubtful that those pitches are right. With all due respect, having seen how far off most of the pitches were in the Elena Tonra thread, I wouldn't trust Inhi's pitching that much Cop
