Rush lead singer Geddy Lee originally wanted to be a guitarist but took up bass because he was part of a basement band that needed a bass player and no one else would do it.
What other artists do you know of that took up instruments just to fill a band’s need for the role? Let me know in the comments!
I’ve got Geddy’s isolated vocal stems for “Tom Sawyer” and we’re going to see how he had that smaller voice type closer to a countertenor.
We’ll look at how this allowed him to develop a very powerful head voice within a more female contralto alto voice type and you’ll see how he uses a lot of chest resonance in his sound.
