Bass Singers #1

Here's my first bass notes video! The highest note to be found in any of my bass videos will be the E2 (other than those notes included in slides down to notes E2 or lower), or the second E up from the bottom of the standard piano. Thanks to all who allowed me to use their video clips (credits will be in each clip to the person who allowed me to use the clip). Just to let everyone know, there is NO VOCAL FRY IN THIS VIDEO except for some in the very last clip (might be some fry in the one before it as well). Friendly comments and questions are welcome (all unfriendly or degrading comments towards these singers or anybody commenting on the video will be deleted). Enjoy this video (and those to come in the future)! :)

1. Adam Lopez does a demonstration of his vocal range. He starts off with a D#2 and proceeds to go 6 octaves higher after that.
2. Josh Turner sings a few D2's in his song, Everything is fine.
3. Basso Profundo Giorgio Tadeo sings and sustains a very nice D2 with no close microphone!
4. Richard Sterban sings a C#2 in the song Jesus is coming soon. This is from their latest 2009 DVD release.
5. Tim Riley slides down to a sustained C2 at the end of Moving up to Gloryland.
6. TV celebrity (who I've heard had some opera training back in the day) Mike Rowe sings a C2 at the end of the Dirty Jobs theme song (I know if you watch the video it looks like Dave Barsky sings the low part at the end, but I read that Mike Rowe recorded all the voice parts himself, so it's really him singing the C2).
7. Now we leave the Great Octave and go into the Contra Octave, starting with a B1 by Josh Turner. The song is Firecracker.
8. Here's Richard Sterban with a very nice slide from A#2-A#1 from the song Where the soul never dies.
9. Aaron McCune, who recently left Gold City and will be missed, is heard here singing an A#1 at the end of Midnight Cry.
10. Here's Aaron again with a few quick but good A1's from the song Get up, Get Ready.
11. Joe Brown, former Bass singer from the Capstone Quartet, sings a few boomy A1's in the song I know what lies ahead.
12. Richard Sterban gets another low one during a very short low passage from I ain't never. He starts at an E2 and ends on an A1.
13. Larry Hooper, the well-known bass from the Lawrence Welk Show, sings an A1-B1-C#2-D2 at the end of Minnie the Mermaid. Very nice!
14. Tim Riley from Gold City hits a few A1's in another performance of Get up, Get Ready.
15. Here's Paul David Kennamer with a very boomy and powerful sustained G#1 at the end of It's almost over. I think this is actually great sounding fry instead of chest voice. See my annotation on this clip.
16. Josh Turner hits his lowest recorded note (so far) while singing King of the Road live with who I believe is Country legend Randy Travis. A very nice G1 at the beginning of the clip from Josh Turner is heard.
17. Aaron McCune sustains a G1 at the end of one of my favorite Gold City songs, For the sake of my heart, here heard being sung live.
18. This is a recent one. As a Gold City veteran, Tim Riley was called in to take Aaron's place after he left until they can find another bass. Always good to hear Tim Riley singing bass with them. Here, he sustains a powerful F#1 at the end of Under Control. New Tenor Chris Cooper is also heard here.
19. You don't think I would dedicate this video to JD Sumner and not have him in it, right? Here's JD with the Masters V in 1991, singing Just a little talk with Jesus. He slides down about 2 octaves at the end, bottoming out at an F1.
20. Here's JD again, this time with the Blackwood Brothers WAY back in the day. This is during the low part of Hide me rock of ages. JD gets all the way down to a sustained E1 here.
21. Paul David Kennamer hits a nice E1 and sustains it in the song Old Ship of Zion. Very nice E1!
22. JD is heard here singing a different version of Just a little talk with Jesus. He bottoms out at an E1 (might touch on D#1 at one point) and finishes the song off by quickly sliding down to a C2.
23. One more from JD. This time, he's with the Masters V from the same 1991 show as the first clip of him in this video. The song is I'm gonna keep on singing, at the end of which JD slides down to a D#1! Very nice!
24. Time for the last note of the Contra Octave! Mike Holcomb from the Inspirations Quartet sings his famous passage live in 1996 during the song Hide me rock of ages. The lowest note is a C1. It seems to be in fry, though. Mike finishes off the song with a nice long sustained C2.
25. One last clip. Here's World Record Holder Tim Storms with the Rescue Quartet, singing an F0(!!!) before quickly sliding up to a B0. Notice the throaty sound and the reduced amount of tone during the F0 and B0...seems to be some vocal fry here.

Have you checked out Nic Val? That guy is never in any of these montages
but absolutely should be! He has a mega 4 1/2 octave range and he has at
least 2 videos on his channel that show him sustaining a B0 in full chest.
Absolutely worth looking at, just type his name in and it comes up.

at 9:24 I can hear the individual pulses 20 times a second F0, the AP Tuner

Автор ASH ASSHOLELA ( назад)
there is no such thing as a note below about 20hz because then, the ear
perceives sounds as individual beats. I.e a 20Hz or approximately a F0
would be a higher note, in the 2nd octaves, abouut 20 times a second.

Really? I actually read about the song and I read that Mike Rowe did the

what you said. Where did you hear or read it was Dave? If you give me a
source, I'll put an annotation in to correct it and I'll acknowledge that
you were the one who gave me the correct info. :)

Автор Matt W ( назад)
Youtuber thebassmanadam has clips of JD Sumner's highest and lowest, and
they seem to be G0 on the low end and C4 on the high end (just over 3
octaves). Both of these extremes might be mixed voice as they don't sound
as strong as his mid to low range. A less experienced bass might have more
like 2 or 2.5 octaves. With falsetto they can go really high, though for
the most part this seems to be used for comedy, haha!

Автор Matt W ( назад)
I'm not a singer, but I'm a drummer, so I can relate to you as a fellow
musician. I've come to learn that practicing techniques is even more
important (though not as fun) as practicing songs. You might want to do a
search on google about training your voice, and then maybe private message
one of the many bass singers here on youtube. As far as songs I'm not too
sure, lol. But I'm sure someone here on youtube could point you in the
right direction.

@GamingDrummer89 Thanks for your help :)

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@BenBistro004 The names of the songs are in the info of this video. As for
the songs themselves, you can hear samples of all of them on valor's
website (google "Valor Music" and then when you get to the site, click the
"music" link. I can't seem to post direct links in youtube comments, sorry
about this!). I don't know if he's still with Valor, though, or if Valor
even is together anymore. Try google searching his name and you might find
some recent info about him. Hope this helps.

Автор BenBistro004 ( назад)
Could you (uploader) possibly tell me the song that Paul David Kennamer
sings, and also if there's a way to get some of his material. Thnaks :)

Автор Patrick Boyle ( назад)
@GamingDrummer89 I don't object to vocal fry or anything else if it
supports the music. Some singers can slip in and out of fry just as tenors
can slip in and out of falsetto. It can be terrible if done poorly (think
Tiny Tim or Slim Whitman). You might want to check out "Fra l'Ombre e
Gl'orrori" maybe the lowest opera aria (also one of the highest). However
most of the singers are in fact very light bass-baritones so as to manage
the high notes.

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@Agorante I know what you mean. However, one prominent bass singer that
doesn't use vocal fry or any other tricks is Tim Riley of Gold City. I
actually talked to him after a concert and he showed me a climb down from
G2 to G1. I could still hear the tone loud and clear down to about Bb1 or
A1. And he didn't have a microphone while he did that. I'm sure if there
were no people talking in the room he could have gone down to F1 without a
mic and I could have heard the tone clearly.

Автор Patrick Boyle ( назад)
Taddeo sings without a microphone in a large hall. He sings solo. In groups
natural singing can go a little lower than that but not much. The problem
is that unlike the top where the voice just suddenly stops (you can either
sing a High C or you can't) the low voice trails off into inaudibility as
it goes lower. Lots of people can make a sound below Low C but you can't
hear them standing right next to them. The mic fixes that up. Especially a
cardioid mic.

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@bottomfeeder73 Yeah, pretty much anything lower than about Eb1 is vocal
fry (aka fake) for Tim Storms. JD Sumner could sing Eb1's way better than
Tim Storms. I used to think Tim Storms was awesome until I found out how to
tell vocal fry apart from real bass singing. Now he's just kinda good in my
book. I'd rather hear a nice full voice G1 than that F0 any day. Lol, I
pretty much put Tim Storms in here just to have a note below the piano.

Автор bottomfeeder73 ( назад)
Tim Storms part is just a joke.

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@BenBistro004 It's a B1.. A B1 is the second B on the low side of the piano
(the second on up from the bottom), and that's what his note seems to be.
When you say B2, do you mean the second B up from the bottom of the piano
or the third one? It's definitely not the third B, which is a B2. You might
be using a different notation, but either way Josh's note there is the
second B on the piano. Try playing the note on the piano and then listen to
Josh sing it and you'll hear it.

Автор BenBistro004 ( назад)
You made an error. Josh Turner's "B1", is actually a B2.

@look4hiram (continued from last post) The letters and # (sharp) or b
(flat) symbols are the notes themselves. The number denotes which octave it
belongs to. Just look at the little "chart" I put in the previous post.
Hope this helps! :)

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@look4hiram Here are the names and numbers of the octaves on a piano as
well as their respective notes: Triple Low (Subcontra, 0): First two notes
on the low side of the piano, A and B Double Low (Contra, 1): Lowest C on
the piano up to the next B. Low (Great, 2): Second C on the piano up to the
next B. Small, 3: Third C on the piano up to the next B. One-line, 4:
Middle C up to the next B And so on for Two-line (5), Three-line (6),
Four-line (7), and Five line (8).

Автор look4hiram ( назад)
Will someone please help me on this. I am trying to understand "double Low
G" and other notes like that. Ok, if I strike a middle C on my piano and I
hit the G to the left of it, is that low G? And the next G down lower is a
Double Low G and the last one would be a tripple low G? Thanks so much for
helping me on this.

Автор Tony Parra ( назад)
Why is everyone always 14? Anyway, im 14 too, and I can go as low as C2 and
then up to G4 in chest. I think thats good :)

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@bubes00 I have been told that Sarah Vaughn could sing a C2(!!!!), but I've
never actually heard her do it. I heard her sing a G2 before though, which
is insanely low for a woman. She did smoke all her life though, so that
might have aided her in getting low.

dude i'm 14 and i can go just as low if not lower but i cant sing worth
crap awsome

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@daevilone87 (continued from last post) The bass guitar isn't frying the
notes just because it requires amplification. Heck, in some cases these
bass singers can be heard with no mics while singing with other people.
Sorry for the long response, haha, but I usually need a lot of room to
explain what the difference between fry and full voice is and sounds like,
and not only that by also why just because a note can't be projected
without amplification doesn't make it vocal fry.

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@daevilone87 (continued from last post) And secondly, not only do low
frequencies sound broken up because you can hear the individual vibrations,
but it also requires a LOT more power to get these notes to have
significant volume. This is another thing Tim Riley told me. He said that
the lower the frequency, the more air it takes to push out. You can hear an
electric guitar decently without an amp, but not with an electric bass.
Why? Because it's LOW. (continued in next post)

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@daevilone87 (continued from last post) Another couple things to remember
are that pretty much all notes lower than around C2 or B1 will have an
almost "broken up" quality to them even when they are sung in full voice.
Even JD, who you see hear, who has a smooth voice that sounds like a bass
guitar, will have a slightly broken up sound to his voice. And so will
pianos and any other instrument that goes this low. It's because the
frequency is extremely low. (continued in next post).

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@daevilone87 Actually it doesn't depend on volume whether or not it is fry.
Vocal fry is basically vibrating your throat and it has very little if any
tone. I can hear tone in most of these and it doesn't have the same "dry"
quality as vocal fry. I've been told that Tim Riley, who is in this video,
has sung as low as F1 without a microphone and can be heard at the other
end of a decent sized room. And Tim himself told me once that he does not
use vocal fry. (continued in next post).

Автор daevilone87 ( назад)
Sorry but a lot of that is fry in my book... If they can sing it without a
mic and still be heard from the other side of the hall then that's
different. just most of them can't. I sing bass myself, I bottom out in
full voice at about C2, sometimes a little lower. However I can make
'noises' that basically go to the end of a piano. Singing they are not
though. However I can make it sound like a lot of the latter half here. Not
as good but then I don't bother practicing it....

Автор Eric N ( назад)
Is it strange for a 14 yearold to be singing a G1? bc I can...

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@IchBinSchtiffy In full voice? If so that's a major gift. I know Tim Riley
told me he could do a low C at age 14 so you must have a deep voice.

Автор Richard Collins ( назад)
How come these are mostly all old white guys singing gospel? nyone know
where I can find some other types of music to practice my low register to?

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@MrEvillarry And some people will likely get mad or offended because of
what I'm about to say, but I will admit to not being a huge fan of Mike
Holcomb's lower range. Tim Riley, London Parris, Richard Sterban, Big Chief
Wetherington, Aaron McCune, Eric Bennett, George Younce, and many others
have mostly clear tone when they get really low. But to me, Mike Holcomb's
lower notes almost sound like a bass guitar with too much distortion
effects on it. So I somewhat agree with you on him.

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@MrEvillarry Richard is indeed a great bass singer. He sounds great down to
at least a G1, and his C2s are hard to beat. But I'd hardly say J.D. sounds
bad when he's really low. I will admit his voice gets somewhat muddy when
he gets that low but he still has plenty of tone in his voice. My personal
top 3 favorites (with Richard Sterban as my 4th favorite) are Tim Riley,
London Parris, and "Big Chief". You can see some of London and Big Chief in
my other 2 bass videos. 

Автор Jimmy_Volmer ( назад)
It's one thing to hit those ultra low notes, but it's another to sound good
doing it. When these guys hit the really low notes they sound like shit.
That's why Richard Sterben is, in MHO, THE best. He sounds awesome even
when pushing his vocal chords. JD may be slightly lower but you can almost
hear his voice telling him to "fuck off, this hurts."

@GamingDrummer89 yes sorry about that i dont usually name the notes with

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@WTFisJamieUp2 I think you mean a B1. Since each octave starts at C, it'd
be a B1. When you say you can sing a D2, you do mean the second D up from
the bottom of the piano, right? If so, your friend would be going to a B1.

Автор James ( назад)
@GamingDrummer89 yea and then my friend shames me by getting down to B2

Автор Matt W ( назад)
@WTFisJamieUp2 Yeah it is low. Usually a bass in a choir is the equivalent
of a baritone in a quartet (Since you are at a D2, you are probably lower
than the average high school student), and a tenor in a choir is the
equivalent of a lead in a quartet.

Автор dabeinman ( назад)
I just listened to him to and he's low but has very poor quality when he
gets below about a G1/Ab1. And he is not the lowest bass singer on earth.
Take into account PDK, Tim Storms, and J.D Sumner. He's not bad though.

Автор Matt W ( назад)
Just listened to him...Tim Riley and George Younce are still the best
overall if you ask me, but I'm very impressed...He sounds like he's hitting
a B0 in one of your videos (and in mixed/full voice, too!). J.D. Sumner and
Paul David Kennamer are still the only 2 I know for sure can go below the
piano in full voice, but a B0 is close. I'm gonna have to include a few
clips for Nic in my next bass video!

Автор Matt W ( назад)
He's the bass singer from the group "Valor"...don't know if they're still
performing or not, though. Just check out biglhot75's video called

including his C0-C1 slide!

cracking up the first time I heard the song on tv, lol!

Автор lyle baillargeon ( назад)
FTW dave barski at 1:40!

Автор Matt W (1322 года назад)
Only thing I can think of is that he had to conserve as much air as
possible on the lower notes...those high notes must take a heck of a lot of
air and lung power to belt out. Also, I don't think that first note was
even close to vocal fry (unless you mean that it was likely getting close
to the bottom of his chest voice range, then you'd be right).

Автор Matt W (1418 лет назад)
It came from a video uploaded by youtuber markcash...it's from 1996 when
the Inspirations Quartet performed it live. Mike Holcomb does the C1 twice
in this performance (though the second time it seems he goes into the vocal
fry range).

Автор gospelmusiclover48 ( назад)
