Josh just uses his head voice and his falsetto to hit high notes, with a great control. Cool

His highest full note (A4) is showcased in Caligulove, from Them Crooked Vultures. He also gets it live:


1:00

.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Indigo marks probable non-modal notes with questionable qualities (overshooting, cracked, erratic-sounding)
*Italics mark non-sung notes.

Nope, he's way too light to be a high baritone. Just listen to Regular John, his timbre has an evident tenorish quality. He gets easy G4's:


Also, I don't think that a high baritone will struggle that much to sing the A2's and G2's in Make it Wit Chu...low tenor all the way to me. But with a rich timbre in the lows.

Indeed, well heard. At 0:59, we can clearly heard a G2 at "ba-BY". Maybe there's even lower notes in that song, but I don't think so.


Ok, let's check the A2's in Bandoliers...

Edit: Holy fuck, sounds like a fry F#1 at 2:07 in Interlude With Ludes (slide to fry G1). What do you think?

After listening to that video I guess I can agree. I guess to me he just always sounded like an HB that sounded like he was lightening his voice to sound like an LT,

What does he bottom out at at the beggining of The Sky Is Falling? In the background you can hear some low notes



Also at 3:38 in the background "That has drained MY life"

Exactly, at 1:20 "if that's the way it has to BE". Now listening to the rest to the song for extra low notes...

F#4 and possibly Bb2 in Reptiles. At least A2 in I Was A Teenage Hand Model.

Screamy highs in Lightning Song, not sure if they're him. Haven't listened in a while. Pretty sure the song also has backing lows.

EDIT: Nevermind the screaming in Lightning Song, that's Nick. The lows are there too, can't bother to try and pitch them.

G4 in I Never Came. Falsetto Bb4 in it too.

lows towards the end of Better Living Through Chemistry
4.40 in God Is In The Radio
2.20 Little Sister

Not in the mood for pitching lows, lol. Bb2 in First it Giveth though.

Same. I'm definitely with 'low tenor', though, the man's voice certainly is bright as hell.

Added, thanks! Yeah, me too, got some work to do, I'll pitch all the lows that you've posted...tomorrow!

And Little Sister lows are already pitched since the beginning: it bottoms at B2 (then slides to C#3).

Full E2s scattered all the way through this song,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDVRQ4BQcb0

i always thought he was some sort of baritone because of his pretty decent low range but happy to be proven wrong, certainly darkened a bit since early qotsa

tracklistings often get confused as the feel good hit reprise is a seperate song on some versions of the album, meaning tension head gets labelled lightning song.

Woah nice, didn't expect that at all.

Btw, are you(stoner) sure about the sick sick sick lows? Casablancas does backing vocals on that song too.

♯ ♭

Then a few other things:
"Sick, Sick, Sick (end of the 2nd chorus)" ...why?
"If Only (from Queens of the Stone Age album)
If Only (from Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age EP)"

Just write "LP Version" and "EP Version" to make it look less...shit.

Please stop mixing capital letters and lower case ones. "First it Giveth" "No one Knows" "Make it wit Chu" "Make it Wit Chu". It just looks retarded.
