I agree, but many people think that it's fried... Same thing with the F#1... If more people agree that it's modal, I'll change it.

He recorded an acappella cover of The Lord's Prayer that was on YouTube for a while (it got taken down, though). He covers something like 3 and a half octaves in it (something like E1-A4). There's a little excerpt from it in this video.



At 13:07. Watch the entire video if you can; great collection of some of the lowest bass voices ever recorded, even if it is almost entirely gospel-oriented. I may upload the entire song at a later date; unfortunately it's not the best quality.

As for the modal vs. fry thing: I think there's a point somewhere in the lower first octave where the two become almost interchangeable. It becomes near impossible to tell what's fry and what isn't. I think those two notes are worth counting as modal, to add my two cents to the conversation.

I'll have to notewatch that video! Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

I added the notes.

Agreed. I changed the C#1 and F#1.

I looked this guy up on this forum a month ago and this thread was nowhere to be found. Weird. scratch

Anyways, pretty sweet voice he has. His lows are insane; super resonant and crackly. I know some people don't like it that way, but I've always been a fan of the guys who can rumble the stage. Nice thread, too. Very Happy

There are some B3s in his and Dailey & Vincent's cover of "Ring of Fire".


Also, aren't there a couple of A3s in "The Lord's Prayer"?

EDIT: Also, although this is probably unrelated, listen to his old single "Safe in the Arms of Your Love" on Spotify. It's hilarious how much he's changed between then and now.

What about that E4 and those G4s? Those would be him as well, correct?

You should probably add the E4 and G4s.
