The Sound Of Silence - Isolated Vocals Analysis - David Draiman - Singing & Recording
It’s an easy and common trap to fall into: You feel like you might be getting the feel of grit and distortion down and then realize your stuck getting dirty with only a few notes!!
If it’s too low or too high, you can’t seem to dial it in… Or you’re tense beyond belief. I’ve successfully coached many vocalists through this problem and it is totally possible, regardless of your voice type, to get great distortion, grit, breakup and tone throughout your whole range. It’s a journey!!
But I’ve never found a better example to point to when it comes to overcoming this obstacle than Disturbed/David Draiman’s cover of The Sound Of Silence! WOW!
He begins so ominously… With a contemplative posture in his voice. Then, throughout the the arc of the song, he builds into soaring cleans… Then with the exact same notes, he creates the most beautiful, messy, distorted, gut-wrenching gritty performance you’ll ever experience!
Join me as I study this immaculate piece of work – DISTURBED’S THE SOUND OF SILENCE, with David’s isolated vocal recordings! …And show you how to spread incredible sounding distortion all over your existing voice!
