Thread Name: trad. song in duet form
Subject: RE: trad. song in duet form
I'm familiar with the kind of harmony where a person starts a third below or a fifth above and cautiously tries out a new part. However, the harmony on the video seems more complicated than that. It seems to have a lot of unusual intervals.

I can't imagine Singer A having the patience to sing the melody again and again until Singer B has worked out and memorized a line like the Louis Killen line in the video.
