Exercise #5: Three, Two, One, Growl!

The human species has a lot of different voice types, depending on where they come from. The most popular types of voice are the head and the chest ones.

The chest voice, in general, is much more powerful, and it produces a deep, almost intimidating sound. On the other hand, the head voice uses the larynx a lot, and, as said above, this is where the raspy voice originates from.

A simple exercise you can do is to growl using your head voice and then try to move your sound to the back of your throat while slowly turning it down. You will immediately feel the vocal fry that many voice actors and actresses use when they want to narrate a compelling story.

This is not a simple exercise, and maintaining this vocal fry effect can be really hard, but you will sooner or later master it with practice.
