Subject: RE: Acapella 2-4 part easy harmony songs
My question is really for Animaterra or someone else that works with a chorus--I have read many desriptions of old time get togethers, in Runyon-esque dives, where hard boiled types regularly joined in a few choruses of some song or another in close four part harmony, and I wondered if that kind of thing really happens--I have heard many folks through on a tenor harmony as naturally as making pancakes, and, depending on style, a bass part can really just ride on the chord fundamental--I am really curious to know if it is possible to just pull that third part out of the air--

just to give you a reality check, I *can* write out multi-part vocal arrangements(as can anyone who knows the basics of harmony), and do know how to write that third part--
