Thread Name: trad. song in duet form
Subject: RE: trad. song in duet form
Our friends in the band The Gaping Maw said that they worked out harmonies in (four parts in this case), by singing till their arm hair stood up, then they figured they had good parts. Listening to their one album, I they were right. I think it's better, in folk music at least, to go by how the harmonies feel, than by what notes would work in a classical sense.
