Looking for a good instructional tape or CD to learn to sing harmony. Am looking into Riders In The Sky tape of how to sing Western Harmonies, but they dont mention which songs they teach!

Anyone ever use this tape? Was It good? Which songs DO they teach?

Thanks in advance!

Nan, on their website, it lists Red River Valley, Tumbling Tumbleweeds, and "other classics". It's a video. You can check it out at Too Slim's Mercantile. Why not email to Too Slim and ask him what the other songs are on the tape?? ~alice

This is my third posting of this message. I repost it, because it provides dynamite assistance and because Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer are wonderful artists and promoters of folk music. Cathy grew up about 20 miles from my house, so she is local talent.

If you can sing a melody, you have the potential to sing harmony. To bring that potential out, I recommend Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer's tape package called "Learn to Sing Harmony."

It is a booklet plus a series of cassette tapes. They do some explanation of what harmony is and then do many examples. They offer opportunities for you to sing along with a part and then to sing it yourself with the melody. They have help from Robin and Linda Williams. They also provide at least two ranges per song. The songs were all familiar to me, all traditional folk songs.

The package is available from Homespun Tapes. The telephone number there is 1-800-33-TAPES. I have found the package well worth the $37.50. It increased my confidence in harmony singing immensely.

This message is in the thread which has a link above. If you read those messages you will get a link to Homespun's web site and a note from Joe Offer that the package is now available in CD as well.
