  1. Lesson from you always helpful just need to practice what you’ve taught.. I need to give some space for my daily time to learn your lesson.. Thanks sifu.. 😊

  2. Holy crap you two are beyond good!!! You’re amazing!!

    I wanna learn this technique really bad but it does sound kinda painful I know you said it takes training and time but when you did the alot of distortion Chris Cornell tribute and the training it took for you guys to get there, it really doesn’t hurt you at all?

    1. I believe you’re supposed to be very gentle with a vocal cords/false cords at least. The strength you hear comes from abdominal support, and using your mask as a placement. Like he said, it’s going to take a lot of practice.

  3. Increíble ken como tocas esas notas altas , me encantaría desarrollar al limite mi rango vocal y aprendo mucho con tus vídeos tutoriales.Gracias por tus consejos Ken,saludos desde España y q viva el ROCK🔝🔥💪

  4. Could you do something more in depth on the false vocal folds? Still don’t really know what those are.

  5. Ken, I go through your lessons over and over again to understand the concepts and only implement it when I feel my vocals are kinda ready to implement it. After the ‘Compression’ technique, it is this ‘Distortion’ that I want to learn…One little question though. There is one song I recently uploaded on my channel here -> If you hear at 2.4 min, I have distorted the voice a little in that line… No idea, if it is a distortion or anything else. But the original song did have that type of vocals by Mr. Kishore Kumar. Would love to hear your thought on this please, Ken. 🙂

  6. Hey Ken … I absolutely love this video…. A lot of the stuff I do involves some sort of distortion at some point… And I’m having the hardest time achieving that and thanks to your video… I can understand why… I’ve been taking your lessons to heart for the last couple years… And this one is very helpful thank you so much… You’re loyal student Brice

  7. ᴛʜᴀɴᴋs ᴀ ʟᴏᴛ sɪʀ ᴋᴇɴ.
    .ᴄᴀɴ ɪ ʀᴇǫᴜᴇsᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴇsᴛ ᴡᴀʏ ᴛᴏ ʟᴇᴀʀɴ sᴄʀᴇᴀᴍɪɴɢ. ʜᴏᴘɪɴɢ ғᴏʀ ɪᴛ ғᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ɴᴇxᴛ ᴜᴘʟᴏᴀᴅ😊

  8. Very informative! Now that I have your course and have been watching the videos I’ve become so much more aware of my voice as an instrument that needs to be treated well. I also hear and notice so many nuances of voice when I listen to others sing. Great information!!

  9. This is great Ken. I’m curious. How did you learn all of this? Did you learn this on your own or another teacher? I’d love to know just a quarter of what you know. Love your videos. Hope that you have a great day and God bless brother.

  10. I like how you add another place for screaming and growling and acknowledge that they can also be done healthily, it just upped your rep even more in my opinion! They don’t involve the true vocal folds, at least not in the way they are involved when singing pitches, but can be done wrong extremely easily as a beginner if not coordinated right so it comes down to having some experience in singing anyway. Oh, perhaps can you react to Gojira?

  11. I’m leaving it to the PRO’s aka Ken🤘🏼😝🤘🏼

    Although this would have been MajesticAF to cheer my kids at all their sports!!!

    Please tell me you did it! You cheered your kids with that scream growl!!!!! The other team would lose it big time


  12. Ken..i have a new video..that i sing like john lennon..
    Please whach this video and tell me what you think.

  13. You are seriously the man. I love to sing and have started doing it a lot more. Hopefully have a few of my own videos up soon. I have watched many coaches but you top them all by far in my opinion!!

  14. Strangely I can growl and I can sing. But I cant distort. Figured out growling with tube and throat singing…. almost no chords involved so i donf have discomfort or pain. Mostly just practice clean singing though… cant sing power metal with a a garbage truck for a voice.

  15. Ken…in highscool and college I was pretty good at singing things with grit/distortion. Anything in the style of Alice In Chains, Creed, Linkin Park etc. But now (6-7 years later) I find that I have ZERO grit when I try to sing. I just can’t do it anymore and I get this terrible cough any time I try to. Do you think this was from putting stress on my vocal chords being young and dumb? Pushing my vocals when I had no idea what I was doing? Any remedies?? Thanks!

  16. Tons of respect to Ken. As someone who semi-wrecked their voice essentially yelling out thrash metal vocals, I just want to say listen to Ken and save your voice. This guy is killing it still at his age, and you can see he’s still getting really good distortion on notes that aren’t super easy to hit clean. You don’t do that for as long as he’s being doing it without doing it right. If he was doing it wrong, he would have lost it in his 30s like everyone you can think of that doesn’t sing like they used to.

  17. Thank You Ken, this is very interesting. Every now and then When the planets align Karaoke is full of professional singers. Nights like that are really fun and amazing.

  18. wow, I’m speechless, not from improper distortion technique, but by how good you are 🤔😮😨😱👍😎🎶🎙️🎼

    1. Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy hey Ken, it’s so hot & humid out here, I have my AC cranking, listening to Stereophonics “maybe tomorrow” a simple tune but catchy, there’s an old saying “your actions are speaking so loud I can’t hear a word you’re saying”, the impact you have on all of us is a great example of sharing a gift the Lord blessed you with, aloha 😎

  19. is it possible to sing like cannibal corpse, deicide, mayhem … etc healthily? this vid is good for thrash metal grit but i don’t think i’ve ever seen you touch on black and death metal. wondering if it is actually possible or if that style is just DEATH TO VOCAL CORDS

  20. Can you react to Oh Darling! by The Beatles ( Paul McCartney vocals)? It’s the perfect illustration of this lesson. Paul doesn’t get enough credit for how unreal his vocals are on that track
