Rock vocals are predominantly a TA dominant mechanism. Some people refer to TA dominant mechanism as a chest voice sound. This TA dominance is typically taken higher in the vocal range when singing rock than other genres. It’s this big full high singing that creates the energy and perceived audible tension that we all love in rock.

  1. Great video Dan. Some Rock vocals are extremely challenging and the singing
    of them is almost counterintuitive.

  2. Dr Dan,
    Is it true that a rock singer like Jon Bon Jovi employs a technique where
    the sound resonates in the nasopharynx? That is, going by exercises on You
    Tube, developed by the ‘bratty’ nay exercise/sound.

    To discover ways to sing with power starts with a minimal quantity and from there it goes up. You additionally must work in your diaphragm and exercise it. It requires proper respiratory approach so your throat and diaphragm can prepare.
