Hi! New to this site. Glad I found it.

Basically, I LOVE to sing--loud and proud. I play in a heavy band where I often scream. Anyone know what I can do to take care of my voice so it doesn't die an early death? Seems to be strained lately.

I am:

White male, 38 yrs., healthy, ex-smoker (been 10 yrs. now), eat healthy diet & enjoy wine & beer w/ occasional liquor drink.
I KNOW!!! Booze is not good for the voice, but, ya know...gotta live right? hehehehehe...

Any help appreciated here! Thanks in advance!!!!!!

Hey there. I have a few friends who scream in a band and they just try not to practice everyday. Your throat muscles need at least 24 hours to heal. Also, warm tea with lemon helps my voice a lot if it feels scratchy or rough. Hope I helped=]

If your show really requires actual screaming, loud and and for long periods, I do not think there`s much that can be done to save your voice. But several top singers that seem "to scream" actually are singing with educated voices that allow them very high notes at a very high sound level. They use techniques borrowed from opera singers.

Now, if you love singing "loud and proud" and feel concerned about abusing of your instrument, I suggest you try to learn these techniques and maybe you could become a new Freddy Mercury, why not...
