Steve Parkes Harmony Singing (24) RE: Harmony Singing 13 May 11

Sandy, as you pay guitar you'll be quite familiar with choirs, and what chord goes with each part of a tune. You'll soon get the hang of singing one of the other notes instead of the melody note. If you listen to the English Copper Family, you'll hear that, in duets, the second part often switches between the third above and the fourth below; whatever was comfortable for his voice. In barbershop, the bass is often more of a counter-melody than a strict harmony.

Sing what feels right. Good luck!
