holy, holy, holy:


Lots of A4s and D5s. A2 at 0:25, D2 at 0:40, F♯5 at 1:34, backing G4 at 2:15, and G5 at 2:45.

everybody wants to be a cat:


G♯5 at the beginning. Quite a few great C♯2s, some dips to A1 (first one at 0:10, followed by backing G♯4s on "tell" and a lead G♯2 on "tell me everybody..."). An awesome G♯1 and some E♭5s at 0:45. Backing E5s at 1:20, F♯5s at 1:42, followed by a really nice C♯6. A5s at 1:57, and is that an E1 at 2:13 (sounds like the bassline goes F♯2-C♯2-E2-C♯2-E2-E1-E2)? Jazzy E♭2s at 2:33, and a lead C5 at 3:18. 3:20 has a slide down to F♯1 or something (not really countable in my opinion, but it's your choice). C♯5 at 3:35 (layered over it is another C♯6). Mind-blowing chest E5s at 3:37.

And, just as a testament to this guy's amazing voice, there's a phenomenal chest F♯5 layered in the harmonies at 4:20. Shocked

There are more to do. I'll look later and see what I can find.

Yeah, about his low notes, apparently most of them are actually produced using an octave pedal. He says it right here, in fact:


I honestly kind of lost interest in this thread for a while because of it. I don't know, I guess I decided that it would probably be too difficult to tell which of his low notes were real and which weren't. I may try to pick this thread back up again now that somebody's actually replied to it, though.
Also, what's that about an E♭6?

Well, that's too bad. I'd be more than happy to help you run through some stuff to see where his true low range lies, though. What video was that comment from? I don't recall an E♭6 but it wouldn't hurt to check.

I can definitely tell where you're coming from. You're looking through his music and you're like "Chest G1s? Woah!" and since the notes sound so powerful down there it's hard to not be into his voice. I can tell you this: the E♭2s from Everybody Wants To Be A Cat definitely sound real.

Also, if what he says is true, I think it would be best to raise his lows a little bit. Maybe up to D3?

I've looked through and can't hear any E♭6.

Alright, let's reinvigorate this thread!



Some very nice E♭2s at the beginning (which certainly sound real; if you don't think so there are some more convincing ones near the end ~2:08); lots of B♭2s as well. B♭4 at 0:15 and many times more throughout the chorus. 1:18 has some E♭5s and G5s at 1:37. B♭5s in octave unison at 1:49.

In terms of edits that should be made necessary, I think starting lows at around C3 is a good idea due to the large loss of notes that will occur after we take out the octave shifted ones. On the plus side, any note above E♭2 should be okay. I'll through some of his newer ones that haven't been listed in this thread and see if I can get you going again.

Also, lows/highs that I listed in my above post (minus the 1st octave ones, of course) could probably be added as well. Very Happy

I understand your disappointment, but check out those E♭2s I listed! Very resonant and bassy IMO.
