Thread Name: Harmony Singing
Subject: Harmony Singing
I perhaps ask a stupid question but must three or four part harmony be always a capella? I would think that a fixed reference note would screw up a triad and I thought barbershop type stuff only set a reference pitch for the melody to begin, but I know nothing of music theory. I was listening to some old Mills Brothers stuff on YouTube and they seem to be doing a chordal harmony while someone tinkles a piano. I wonder if perhaps the notes were added later as a seperate track?
