    Hello, I've noticed that most times when i sing in my chest voice i tend to go into a vocal fry, and its very hard to not use it. I would just like any tips to have a more clear voice when im singing low instead of just hearing this buzzing sound. Also tips to use it more effect in singing. Because it seems to be a default whenever i sing low or sing without warming up, so it is usually unintentional.

    Hi, Gerardo! 

    My advice is to find a lighter coordination and/or "forward placement" in chest voice. So rather than singing on an open vowel like OH, AH, or UH - sing on an OO or EE. If you still hear fry, sing on an MM, NN, or a syllable that starts with M or N. That encourages more head and nasal resonance, which should lighten your sound a little and prevent it from falling into fry. Think of the sound as being small and focused at the front of your mouth, rather than somewhere in your throat. 

    Let me know how it goes!
