Hello !

I have plans to write an article about Freddie´s voice. I´m studying at an univeristy in Norway, and this is my fourth and a halft year.


I´m studying music as my intermediate subject. I have been thinking about how to approach the subject and how to find a problem or quastion which I can solve. Maybe a bit vague, but I´m still in the progress of trying to find a place to begin.

I think I´ll look upon his voice and how it changed through the years et.cetera... Maybe a bit obvious since a voice changes thriugh time. Still I think I´ll make a decent product.

Any suggestions, ideas considering how to write about his voice and technique and so on....??

Thanx

Well, you could just completely plagiarise this site:

That site is just perfect. I used to spend hours checking it out, listening to all the samples and showing it to my friends, since I'm a musician. I'm really proud of my favourite band, and Freddie's voice is just as important as Brian's guitarplaying in order to achieve the so called "Queen sound".
Great site!...

Muchas felicidades, che boludo, te sacaste un 10. jaja :)

Hey, thanks on the compliments, it was actually a huge pleasure putting the website online :P

For those who still doesn't have any news, i'm updating the website veeery soon, with tons of new features (sheet music, singing tips, harmonies studies, samples and characteristics of Brian's and Roger's voices, and much much more...!) and also i've created a new discussion forum and it's located on http://www.elforo.de/freddiemercury/ ... I'm still trying to get an english-based PhpBB forum, but i think that can wait :P

Jajaja, un argentino? Así que me saqué un 10!! Copado! Me alegro!! Un abrazo, y nos estamos leyendo. Me parece que algún día voy a armar una reunión desde la web para conocer a la gente de Argentina :P

All I have to say on the subject is that Freddie's voice speaks for itself.

*Places hat out for coins*

"Perhaps this question" - when was Freddie at his best ?

An interesting question. My first answer would be strangely enough in 1991. Strange because he was very sick, not strange maybe because he had aged and was more mature..!?

No soy argentino, sino mexicano, pero conozco a varios argentinos y me da gusto saber que existimos fans de Queen en latinoamérica y que estamos presentes en la red.

(Just telling him I'm not from argentina, but from mexico and that I'm glad there are fans from latin america in this board... so you don't get mad, haha :))

Remember, Falsetto isn't part of your range. A full voiced 4 octave range is pretty rare, almost impossible.

Real full voice range is chest voice - mix (or passaggio) and head voice. Falsetto, whistle voice and vocal fry aren't truly a part of your range, they're just resources... "effects"... ;)

I have a 4 and a half octaves vocal extension, if i include my falsetto singing. Full voiced, i'm around 3 octaves and a major third, or a perfect fourth, perhaps, from C2 to E5 or F5 (middle C is C4), and to F6 into falsetto.

I'm a tall baritone (6'4'). My size gave me long and thick vocal cords, and that's the reason of my low notes, but I also had almost 4 years of vocal technique, and my upper range (head register), it's pretty developed.

I was the lead singer and keyboard in my symphonic rock band, Coda, and we used to play several covers, including Iron Maiden's and pretty high stuff.

My own tessitura (or absolute comfourtable range) is around F2 to Bb4... usual baritone range ;)

Around December i'll post my own version of "All God's People" in Stage of Champions :P

Best Regards!

AeG.
