Like everything else, it should be comfortable and not cause any damage.
I try to learn where I can and ask questions, the reason I am the guy doing the growls is because I can do them properly for an extended period of time without damaging my voice but you're totally right Bo, a coach would help. I guess with time and money it's just easier to take shortcuts and jump online, I had singing lessons years ago when I sang regularly and now I'm singing again with my voice having changed so much it's probably time to re-evaluate.
If you don't mind me asking, do you sing at all Bo or do you just know vocalists? Not enough drummers take up singing in my opinion.
