Is it possible to access one's head voice by by using vocal fry?
Falsetto is known to have its vocal chords spread apart, resulting in a high pitched but airy and quiet tone. Head voice is also used to achieve high notes as well, but with compressed vocal cords, resulting in a more fuller sound.
After researching about vocal fry, I learned that even though the vocal cords are relaxed, they are still compressed and together. Vocal fry is used in several genres (e.g. RnB) and is utilized in the beginning of a phrase to give that "raspy" texture.
So referring to my question, by using vocal fry at the beginning of a phrase which involves high pitched notes, would that allow an individual to access head voice (due to the vocal cords being compressed at both moments) or will it default to falsetto?
