Vocal Tip ~ Laryngitis ~ by fONS
I remember having Laryngitis!
On the UP-side... I was given a natural added octave that went my normal G2 all the way down to G1 and lower... and that I can tell you was... AWESOME!
Being able to sing lower than anybody on this earth gave me a AWESOME feeling!
I was singing Baritone in this group which already had a Bass Singer, and I could sing an octave lower than anything he could sing, so I ditched the Baritone parts and added an Amazing Bass to all our arrangements.
During sound check, when I said, "Hello" over the microphone... the Sound Engineer was blown away when she asked, "Wow! Is that your voice? Are you going to sing like that!".
On the DOWN-side... my actual lowest note was now the highest note that I could sing and I could not sing long phrases because my voice would suddenly disappear... and it was painful to sing long phrases without any rest in between.
