Robert Pollard is a prolific singer-songwriter from Dayton Ohio.  Between his work with Guided by voices and other various solo projects, he has produced 44 LPs and 28 EPs.  Despite this massive  discography, Rob Pollard rarely lets a bad song pass quality control and consistently continues to deliver worthwhile recordings.  Throughout many projects, Bob has explored all parts of his range, but usually focuses on his high belted notes. Use of falsetto is rare, but can be heard on the songs "Wished I Was a Giant" and "Liquid Indian".  Pollard also possesses a resonant B2 to D3 low range.  Pollard's singing voice sounds pretty much the same as it did thirty years ago give or take a little gravel.

*Italics mark non-melodic notes.
*Blue marks falsetto notes
*Green marks harsh distorted notes

just use these colors;

Blue
Green

It's a lot easier on peoples eyes and it's the more-used version of the colors on this forum...and the legend could be smaller.....

and the term "sung" should be changed to "melodic"...

Thanks! Sorry about that. But there's also another # that needs to be changed to ♯...
Is that B3 really a B3 or is it a typo B2? Because of it's a B3 it should go above the C3....
