Distinguish between the false vocal cords and true vocal cords?

False Vocal Cords are typically used in musical song, mostly in metal (deep growl or screaming), or tuvan throat singing. False vocal cords can also be used to produce a low, bass like, pitch. However without the proper knowledge of how to use false vocal cords damage can be done and the consequences may be harmful to the throat.True Vocal Cords are typically used in general speaking or can be heard when listening to most songs (non-metal). True vocal cords are used most often when talking, the pitch of true vocal cords vary from person to person, a female typically will have high pitched true vocal cords than those of a male. However vise-versa is also possible.If you are looking for a much more anatomic explanation or description, I suggest visiting wikipedia, and searching False Vocal Cords. If you are looking for a more practical explanation of distinguishing pitches and sound from either true or false vocal chords, I suggest google videos, or youtube, however youtube may not be as reliable, nor may google videos. Simply googling, "False vocal cord audio" may find the desired information.
