I've been trying to learn how to do a growl. I trued to use keyword searches in google but I never could construct my question well so I'd like to use examples instead. Most answers and questions relate to Heavy Metal singing and whatnot but I don't think I'd like to head that way.
Here are some example voices that I am referring this type of growl to:
Various versions of Master of the House from Les Miserables. At least listen to the first 1:30 mins of each:
TJ Miller's Fred from Big Hero 6 (Skip to 0:45 where he says "Rocket Ship")
and lastly, Tom Kenny's Ice King from Adventure time
How do you learn how to do this? Are there some exercises and techniques I should know? What should I avoid when doing this that is vocally-damaging? An insightful answer is very much appreciated cause I'm not really that much literate when it comes to technical terms in music. I'm also aware I can't compare my voice to 30+ year old people's voice which I'm tryna imitate but I hope you can help get me a 20 year old version of that..
Thank you very much. :)
